I’m knee deep in teaching myself renpy/python coding in which I mean I have just barely gotten down making 2 types of menu choices and am now reading up on making variables in python when it’s still pretty intimidating to me, but ‘tis the way of things when you’re used to teaching yourself things. I’m so used to the initial struggle of the learning curve that I’m just saying to myself “You’re going to be able to look back on this one day and say man, I can’t believe I struggled with doing that, it’s so easy now”.
But those are musings for another blog. For this one, I continue Kirby month with a cover of Bubbly Clouds!
I say “continue” but this is going to be the last cover for the month. I was hoping to do one a week for Kirby cuz I love him so much, but the other two covers I wanted to do I wanted to put more time into arranging because I have a lot of ideas for them. I love this and Green Greens, but they’re both pretty simple in terms of my usual arrangements as of late. Not a bad thing, but the other two I just really wanted to be a bit more…artistic than these two, as hipster as that sounds haha. I don’t really have much to say about this one, it was a lot of fun to put together! Not gonna lie: I love how cute my upbeat Kirby covers sound, and this one really captures the floating bubbly feeling Bubbly Clouds gives me. I feel like I can’t do a Kirby cover that doesn’t sound cute, they just come out that way XD
Finally got to use my shakers in something, so that was nice! My musical style uses really scarce percussion usually so whenever I try to add shakers to something, they just never fit. This was the first time I recorded them and said “Yeah, this sounds like it fits in here” so I was like woooo I finally get to use these things I purchased months ago lol. Using the claves for that click clack bubble pop sound was super fun, too! And a lot easier than trying to do it with my tongue clicking noise, that was a heralding experience.
Happy Birthday Kirby, you’re amazing and cute and I love yoooou! Now back to my learning code cave~
