Re: learning art

No one's responded to this yet, so I'll chime in: Honestly, if it's not something you're interested and/or passionate about, don't even worry about doing it. If saving money is your primary concern, there are plenty of art resources online where you can get access to cheap or free art that is availa...

How to Display Multiple Text?

I've been using the Ren'py camera lot lately, and I realized I could use it to place and move words using "show text" around the screen with ease! I would love to utilize this to place word balloons on the screen in various locations, but whenever I use "show text", I can't use that tag again to dis...

Imagebutton Question!

I have a hidden-picture-esque minipuzzle in my visual novel, using image buttons for the various clickable elements, and then using the "_hover" and "_idle" extensions on the image names to have the images change shape while the player hovers over them (so it makes a bowl of candy glow for instance,...

Re: Move Main Menu to the right, scrollable sections to left?

Thank you! The real dumb part is I'm a patreon supporter and I probably already read it, and then forgot it -_-. Marking this as solved!

Move Main Menu to the right, scrollable sections to left? [SOLVED]

I know that I can move the main menu from the left side of the screen to the right by changing the variable gui.navigation_xpos from 20 to 1000-something, but what do I need to adjust to make the content from the Help, Load/History, and About screen move from the right side of the screen to the left...

Re: King of the Cul-De-Sac [Action, Comedy] |Alpha|

Short update - Of the four different pathways in the first part of the game, the final art for 3 of them are finally COMPLETE! I was briefly sidetracked by some freelance work that plopped in my lap, but I'm back on schedule, and still likely to make my late October deadline for a demo! Currently, I...

Re: Benefits of Visual Novels?

For me personally, the VN format gives me certain benefits I can't get from producing a story as a comic: Sprite/background production where I can reuse assets without it looking like I'm just being lazy. Branching paths so I can pump out lots of weird ideas I have without making the story 4 times a...

Re: King of the Cul-De-Sac [Action, Comedy] |Alpha|

Currently still producing art for the upcoming demo - I finished 7 sprites and 5 pieces of background art, and I'm looking to finish another big batch of art this weekend if possible. So, a lot of this art is getting rushed through, and a little less than HALF of it will only be onscreen for 1-2 lin...

Re: Looking for a interactive pen display drawing tablet?

I've had so many friends get burned on Cintiq alternatives that I can't imagine the stress of trying to get a good deal on a display tablet! If you can find a display tablet that you can test in person, and it works okay for you, it's worth getting. My friend had a model of Huion tablet, and althoug...

Re: King of the Cul-De-Sac [Action, Comedy] |Alpha|

Wow, I have not updated here in a while! I've been posting regularly on r/vndevs, but progress was relatively slow week to week for a few months; things are finally starting to pick up! The Alpha is finished, with temporary art assets for everything. I've done alpha tests with friends and colleagues...

Re: Artist looking for Illustrator display tablet ?

I currently have a Cintiq 22HD Touch for use at home, and I absolutely adore it, and it's really been a boon to my work process. HOWEVER, it's still $2,000 dollars, and I worked professionally as an artist without it for nearly 10 years. At my day job at a game studio, many of my colleagues and I st...

Re: How much time daily do you spend on your VN?

I'm on my first VN, and I just finished alpha production, going into beta, and currently it's a one-person project. (NOTE: I have over 6 years of experience working as an artist for game and interactive narrative production, but this is the first project that I'm writing + coding by myself.) I sched...
