Re: sprite making critique

I definitely think you could sell those! I've seen people on this forum sell full bodies for around $30 to $70. I've noticed that pros on Japanese sites tend to charge around $100 to $200. Considering the nature of this forum though I'd stick to the first range, at least for now. Instead of saving t...

Re: Feedback for handsome butler

I think you did a pretty good job. I've attached an edit of what I believe would make it even more "otome" looking (ignore the white lines plz) OMUf5RB.jpg - Made head smaller - Eyes narrower - Gradient to lower half of face - Made lineart dark red in some parts to soften it - Hair is more "chunky" ...

Re: Otome Game Query

I don't know how closely you'd base these two girls off real people, but to be honest I'd find that pretty weird. It's like those people who ship youtubers: intrusive and kind of gross. Even if you had specific endorsement from the real people, I'd feel odd playing out a constructed version of someo...

Re: Protagonist Portraits

I've never thought of myself as being the protagonist, nor do I enjoy reading about blank slates. For me a visual novel is just a digital book with pictures and choices, so like any normal book I'd want the main character - whom we usually see the story through the eyes of - to be as interesting as ...

Re: [Anime Art] How do I make my characters look older?

This thread has some useful information on drawing young adult-ish looking anime characters. >> https://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=36041 It seems to me that the further anime moves away from teenage humans, the more realistic the style gets. For example, with the exception of the...

Re: Programs to make BGs and GUI

Sketchup is probably the most popular program because it's fairly easy to use, and there's a free version. It's not very good for inorganic backgrounds though, and you need third party addons if you plan to render. Uncle Mugen has some great background tutorials that use sketchup. Blender is another...

Re: What kind of Personalities for a MC?

I generally don't mind what personality the MC has in a game, as long as it exists. It's pretty hard to be enthused about character interactions if one side is a vapid yes man. I tend to prefer intelligent main characters who react like ordinary, rational people. I'm actually alright with whiny, inc...

Re: Artist For Hire! (Full Illustrations, Character Designs)

Hey, your art is super cute, but considering this is a forum for vn creation, maybe it would be good to set prices for vn assets in your thread? Like sprites and cgs and such rather than general illustration. Maybe consider setting prices for things like extra poses/expressions/ outfits? Good luck w...

Re: [Lunarisse] Help me build my portfolio! Critiques too pl

If you're willing, would you draw this guy? Either version is fine! ref1_by_chance_lla-dapbmd8.jpg Your art is very impressive! To push it to the next level, might I recommend pushing the colours a bit more? Try using darker, more saturated reds for the shadows of the skin and upping the general con...

Re: Best Friends Forever [GxB/GxG][Fantasy/School-Life] DEMO

I love games where the emphasis is put on female friendships rather than romance, so I was pretty excited to try this. Wasn't disappointed, the quality is fantastic! Here's some answers to your questions. What did you think of the premise? Started off pretty generic, but still cute. But after Saffro...

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

C3qm4r4WMAAnOoi.jpg No matter whether you choose to commission an artist or learn to draw yourself, it's going to be long, challenging and expensive- especially if you want work that is high quality, timely and for a low price. That being said, what is "cheap" for a commissioner is often very diffe...

Re: Western vs. Eastern Storytelling

I agree that it isn't really in our place to stereotype/generalise the differences between Western and Eastern storytelling, but from my (quite limited) perspective, they do exist. But these differences are definitely based in traditional differences in storytelling practices rather than perceived d...
