Re: Full-time composer FOR HIRE

Thanks for the reply. I suppose the matter of "its just good practice" is as good a reason as any after all! XD It is :) I maybe somewhat opinionated/idealistic but if a composer wants to be taken seriously and act like a professional, then they should treat their work (both the act and the product...

Re: Full-time composer FOR HIRE

Hey hey, fellow composer here.Out of curiosity, Do you ever actually see any benefit from registering your indie game music with a PRO? You don't really get much (if any) performance royalties for a game right? I'm registered with ASCAP but I almost never register my stuff with them because I see n...

Re: What kind of song is this (genre, etc.)?

Game and film music is always difficult to place in a box. In addition "game music" or "film music" is not a genre or a style in its own right either. It is just a context, purpose and area of use. Genre tags that I would apply here are ambient, new age or meditation music. But that REALLY doesn't d...

Re: Hamaru Shoujo [High School] [Drama] [BxG] [18+] [Ren'Py]

I’ll hold you to that! ;) I kid, I kid! :D I have a friend who is an amazing artist.. but I don’t know your budget so I can’t really say if he’s too expensive or not. He does anything from realistic to cartoony. Character art, that is. Can’t remember how well he does sceneries. Surely well, but I am...

Re: Hamaru Shoujo [High School] [Drama] [BxG] [18+] [Ren'Py]

The temporary character art looks really fun! But since it’s only temporary, enough of that. What are you actually thinking when it comes to the visual style of the novel, Both character art and backgrounds? I would love to see it as something else than manga. Of course it’s up to you to decide, but...

Re: Lamplost Idea

Well, write the ending – or endings. That way you have a direction. The rest is just filling the gaps basically! I use this method when I plan or write music even. Promise you! Makes life so much easier when you know where you are headed! :D Anyhow, I am looking forward to the WIP thread! Also, if y...

Re: Lamplost Idea

What Zelan said is a good point worth considering. Also, based on the art you shared here, you have a rather distinct idea of the visual style and design. You have a chance to make something really eye catching so play that your advantage and make it really good. No half measures! ;)

Re: Help with what kind of instruments I should use

Hi Eli! Just to make sure I understood you correct, the VN you are working on has macabre visuals, but the music should be upbeat ie. positive/happy/light/casual? I assume this kind of bypasses the whole horror aesthetics. Great sound design and music is an essential component in making a story chil...

Re: Can I use opening of an anime in my visual novel?

No, you cannot, if you want to share the VN in public. It does not matter, if it is for free or not. It is still breaking the law. If you want music to your VN, it has to be made specifically for it. Or you can use production/library music if you pay the license. Or you can search for music that is ...

I can't seem to find any email from you Markus. Would you be able to send it through again?
Strange..? I actually sent it already on Sunday. I wonder if it ended up in spam? Regardless, I sent it again and just to make sure I’ll send you. PM in a sec :)
