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

Even better!!!!!! How much you have of the story thought out? Just the main idea or have you had a chance to flesh things out?

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 ...

Re: Ideal Volume

What Imperf3kt said is an easy solution. It has its down sides though. If you normalise everything with the same setting, pieces that are supposed to be soft, now sound very loud next to tracks that are more loud of themselves. For example a soft and heart aching track sounds as loud as a big bad ac...

Re: Best microphone for voice acting?

Microphones are a bit tricky. Each microphone has their own sound. Some of them fit better with other voices. Others fit better with others. Instead of jumping into the "what [GEAR] makes X better" train, let me suggest a few things that don't require money. Condenser microphones (the microphones us...
