Re: Please help!!

What do you mean by beautiful? Are you trying to improve the quality of the art, or make the character look more physically attractive? Both? A few things I noticed: The placement of the features on his face is a little wonky. His mouth in particular is very far to the left compared to the nose posi...

Re: Sprite/BG/Logo Artist [Available]

Trimmed the number of examples a little, and added a new piece of character art.

Re: Introducing love interests late in the story?

As long as there’s plenty of time to get to know the character, I don’t see why you couldn’t introduce them a bit later. It’s only really important to introduce them early where you have a short common route and much longer character routes. As long as the writing is engaging and the players know th...

Re: Selidor’s Sketchbook

So I know this is late, but I really like your backgrounds! Personally I'm constantly frustrated by any backgrounds I try to make, it always feels as if they're either too detailed or not detailed enough. Your street background feel just right. Can I ask what brush you used to do the plants? It's g...

Re: NaNoReno 2019 General Recruitment Thread

I’m a 2D artist looking to offer some anime-style sprites (also CGs, but only if I’m doing the sprites too). I am capable of doing graphic design and backgrounds too, but I’m really looking to do sprites for this. I am looking for a small otome or BL game (no 18+), any genre except horror. By small,...

Re: "History" in VNs - do you use it?

Hi there, thank you for answering! I have the same problems, but I usually prefer to just use my mouse wheel to roll back and read everything in full. It's faster for me than opening the "history screen". scrolling to find the right line and read it without the sound effects or graphics... If I can...

Re: "History" in VNs - do you use it?

I use it because sometimes I do something stupid like hit a button to advance the text before I've finished reading a line, or zone out and realise a few lines later that I wasn't really reading anything. Sometimes it's also nice to look back over a complex conversation to make sure I've fully grasp...

Re: The Stone Sun [BxB] [Fantasy] [Commercial]

My main focus right now is still on finishing my long-running webcomic, which is almost at an end, but I’ve made some progress on the art and script for the Stone Sun too. Here’s the finished new concept for Amat. 0D4EE9C6-DB1E-47BC-ACF0-5F1CAEA7B064.jpeg Next up for a redesign is Eddie. Here’s a ro...

Re: Otome stereotypes

For parodies, you have to think about who your audience is going to be. For an otoge parody, chances are the sorts of people who will be interested are going to be otome fans with a sense of humour, who can appreciate the silly side of a genre they love. For this reason, I would say an affectionate ...

Re: The Stone Sun [BxB] [Fantasy] [Commercial]

It's been a while since the last update, and while most of my time is currently going towards completing my webcomic, I have been working on this as well. The sprites I originally drew are over two years old, and while I updated the faces last year, the bodies are a mess as well, so I've been redesi...

Re: Is this yaoi?

It's inaccurate to say that BL is just straight women fetishising gay male love, and it feeds into a lot of negative attitudes towards BL fans that have been on the rise over the last few months. It's true that BL is more aimed towards women and bara more aimed towards men, but the line is pretty bl...

Re: How do I effectively write tragic and emotional scenes and bad endings?

Unless your intention is to write a full alternate ending (i.e.: with a credits scene instead of a game over), don't drag it out for too long. Ultimately people are playing for the 'real' ending, and forcing them through extended misery to complete their CG gallery etc. is going to be a bit of a pai...
