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...

Working on a trio of male sprites inspired by idol franchises. Here’s a WIP of the first one.

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...

Re: BL game without smut

I don’t care about whether or not there’s smut, and I don’t think I’m a particularly unusual BL fan. As long as the writing and/or art is good, I think people will play it. There are plenty of popular otome games with no adult content at all, and the audience there isn’t so different from the BL aud...

Re: Diversity in Visual Novels

To add to the above, for any future surveys you might create, you’d be better off splitting the question about gender identity into two - one with gender, and the other with trans status (including ‘prefer not to answer’ and ‘questioning’ options). You’ll find that many trans men and women don’t nec...
