Re: What kind of puzzles do you like in your Adventure games

I'm fine with any puzzle that isn't a stupid slider puzzle. The ones where you have an empty space and all the jumbled up tiles need to be arranged to make a picture.
That isn't a prize, Cracker Jacks. That's a curse.

Never met anyone who didn't like riddles, though.

Re: Heartstring Bugs [dating sim, otome] (Guide's up)

When you have that many random events, it's pretty time consuming making sure they have different outcomes for different situations. Sometimes it's even better to just keep them random, like when I dumped Dimitri for Huang and then continued going on dates with the poor guy, spurring dialogue like "...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Which one of the two is better-colored? The purple of the skin in the first picture is almost too much. She looks like she was pummeled recently. I still like it better, however, because of the shading on the hair and clothing. The only other complaint is that the lace on her collar looks a little ...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Decided to play around in Sketchup/Gimp and it made me nostalgic for my high school Drafting class. Oh those halcyon days when the school decided building CO2 cars for weeks was an age-appropriate lesson in both Middle School and Senior year. (Absolutely terrible, super-lazy background by the way. D...

Re: Requesting critique of girl sprites

That right elbow is way too sharp and the eyelashes are too big. I suggest just having the upper eyelashes remain the same, and make the lower ones less noticeable. Otherwise, her eyes paired with her blank smile makes her look absolutely blazed. The hair could work, but it depends on how you color ...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Using the template from here as placeholder art for a character, but I needed more arm positions and changed the style of the fingers and the lines of the body so it looked more androgynous. Well, as androgynous as you can look when you jut your hip out. Unfortunately, tablet died a month ago so I h...

Re: Break Chance Memento [BxB] [Sci-Fi Murder Mystery]

The backgrounds are great and the lighting and mirror in the first picture are great touches, but the eyes in the second one are kind of off. I don't know if they're supposed to be looking at each other or not.

I don't know about those leaves. The sudden detail out of nowhere makes it look copy-pasted or a leaf brush and clashes with the relatively simple trunk. It's definitely a recognizable tree, though.

Can I just say that Gabe's face reminds me of
Zoolander's Blue Steel look
?
I think it's the lips and maybe the eyebrow as well.

Re: Elements: The Academy [GxB][Romance|Fantasy|Slife]

I think the hair on the top of his head is a little too indented/close to his skull for how fluffy it looks, but I'm mainly impressed by the fact that the wrinkles on his shirt and the shading makes sense and look good.

Re: AXIOM.01 [detective mystery][otome] - Questions 8/3

If you don't want to obscure the sprites' faces in the normal menus, you could always do something like in this image. And it would work for up to 4 or 5 options.
Really dependent on how much space they take up, however.

Re: AXIOM.01 [detective mystery][otome] - Questions 8/3

The third one looks like the one that would most likely be used in a professional, commercial game and would probably be the best choice. However, if that one is unfeasible you could always do numbers 1 or 2, but with a button to the side that says something like "Other Questions" that would allow y...
