Re: How did you learn to draw?

For me it's a meandering journey. Okay, storytime because why not? :lol: So I started taking art seriously when I saw Feng Zhu's videos back in 2013, he's a concept artist and at that time I became so inspired that I wanted to become a concept artist too. I watched all his videos and religiously fol...

Re: What is the Size of Your Canvas?

I used to start with a large canvas before but I found that my proportions are usually always off or I start adding details too early. Nowadays, I start with 1000x1000. It's good enough for sketching and practically prevents too much detail, once I'm happy with the overall sketch, I increase the can...

Re: What do you honestly think of my art?

Agreed with MaiMai. You don't need to draw realism, I personally don't because anime style is what I live for, but studying real human anatomy will give you a solid foundation which you can build from or stylize however you want. Think about it this way, if you can see yourself drawing anime girls/g...

Re: Visual novels vs other mediums

One thing I really like about VNs is the introspection of the MC's thoughts. VNs tend to delve deeper into the character's thoughts/stance/emotions/beliefs/reasoning, so I find it easier to sympathize with the character. Anime/manga has limited run-time/panels so thoughts are usually condensed or co...

Re: To Libertad [Kinetic][Fantasy][YuriJam2016]

Like Seigetsu, I thought the ending was a little rushed considering that they only knew each other for two days, but hey, they saved each other's lives and opened up about their pasts. Plus, they're cute. So whatever, I'll give that a pass. I mean, this was done for the YuriJam . I had to please th...

Re: Should I start commissioning or learning how to draw?

As in to achieve 50% mastery would probably take a month Why don't you try drawing for a month and find out if this is true? I share the same sentiment as Lesleigh63, do it if art is something you need in your life. There's nothing wrong with doing art for fun, but if you want to take it seriously(...

It's been a while since I've done a personal illustration (and posted here, coincidentally). Anyway, I thought this turned out pretty well! Click it for hi-res image.

Re: Why are you making your current visual novel?

In general, I make VNs because it's the best format for my stories. But for my current project, it's a combination of stuff I want to see more of and a personal challenge of how I can push my art and programming skills. My current project is gameplay-heavy (a Shop Simulation + RPG). But really, more...

Re: Diamond Rose [Kinetic][RPG][Fantasy][NaNoRenO2016]

Thanks for the review. I just read it and I just wanted to explain this one thing: Also, the characters don’t have levels here, so fighting the monsters don’t reward you with EXP, which, in other games, could increase HP and SP—not to mention, it could also increase the player’s motivation to actual...

Re: To Libertad [Kinetic][Fantasy][YuriJam2016]

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the game ^_^ I suppose the ending is a bit hasty, given that they only knew each other for a few days. But I think saving each other, especially from death (and from the shackles of her past for Martha) makes you feel that way. I like to think that Martha ju...

Re: CG in visual novels - Too many or too few?

As a player, I like having plenty of CGs, but I think adding too many could be a negative. CGs are good for highlighting key emotional and plot moments, and too many could diminish the impact. On top of that, sprites may be less special than CGs, but watching characters switch expressions and poses...
