Celebrating my birthday in Anna’s house

Good morning! In last month’s post we saw the exterior of Anna’s house. And now Anna wants to invite you inside to celebrate my birthday today (and have some cake)! ^_^

Living room of Anna's house

First, a comfy living room / kitchen (as almost always, click to view larger). This is where Café Memoria days start, where Anna and Elena spend time having breakfast before work. And, on their days off, lunch, dinner, as well as watching a movie or documentaries together. BTW, that red thing next to the flat-screen is not an ashtray, it’s a fragrant candle! This is a non-smoking household. Care to have some bread from the basket?

Anna's bedroom

Now, let’s go to Anna’s room! Decided to go with a pink and white scheme. Anna loves nature, so there’s a few potted plants and pictures of such. I think the woody texture of the furniture makes it more nature-y, while keeping it somewhat modern. And of course, Anna bought a laptop with the money she makes at Café Memoria. It’s an, uh, Acer laptop powered with a Core i3 + Windows 10! She’s not a gamer, anyway; she mostly uses it for schoolwork.

What do you guys think of these interior BGs? I think my BG artist did a marvelous job!

Backgrounds aside, this month has been somewhat plagued with computer problems. Some of them include a minor malware infection, to an automatic update breaking some of my software. Fortunately it wasn’t that bad thanks to scans and backups, but it did take hours to fix.

Despite the above setbacks, I tried my best to get stuff done! Among them include planning food artworks. Unlike the first Café Memoria, CMD will not be using any food stock photos, but instead will be drawn (still debating if I should hire a separate artist for this).

I’m also in the process of planning out event CG artwork. Of course this will be done by my character artist. How does one plan out event artwork anyway? I have quite a bit of CGs, and I can only gather so much references. Maybe the BG art will help a bit, for the artist to get an idea of the environment? For example, there is a scene where Ryne and Anna are studying in the latter’s room – I’m hoping the BGs will make doing CG art less complicated!

You know, I kind of regret not commissioning an artwork of Anna presenting a birthday cake. Though, at the same time it’s probably best if given from the thoughts of others, and not expecting / asking for anything. Perhaps one of the most important things I learned in my life is “it’s the thought that counts.”

Enjoy! I think I’ll celebrate my birthday by relaxing a bit today.
