Re: Looking for a Character Designer/Illustrator

Hi! I saw that one of the topic that the artist must be skilled at is about sexy/erotic illustrations. Is that mean this project is NSFW?

Re: should I make my game an EA with no characters

Isn't there other way to test your story? Is the early access free or paid? Because if it's paid, for me personally, if I'm going to invest in your game, it should at least hook me up visually just like a book cover does. And in early access, I think people who play will expect some well-planned upd...

Re: Reference preferences

Having a dedicated pinterest board is a good start. In my case, if my client doesn't have a finished/fixed character reference, I asked them to look for reference for specific part of their character. So the end reference will be something like : hair from x character, outfit from y photograph, and ...

Re: How to decide your prices?

I think your works are beautiful! Even though the coloring style is simple, you rendered the clothes nice and clean and you also quite nailed it on anatomy. I can't really tell you how much you should charge for your work because it's very personal and depends on a lot of factors, like where you liv...

Re: How to draw items for visual novel?

Aren't those things depend on the game's needs? For picture size though, I suggest always start bigger than actual in-game size in case you need it later for promotional stuff or something else. For example, if the in-game size is 300 pixels, you might want to draw at 1000 pixels at least. Just make...

Your item (or should I say food?) drawing on your dA looks good already. What seem to be the problem?

Re: facial guidelines. Is this making him ugly or handsome?

Number 3 is fine. Head is a bit bigger for normal proportion but if it's your style and preference, then go for it. A suggestion based on Autumnotopia's comment, the jawline is not too visible because the color is very similar with the ear so I suggest you make the ear a bit darker.

Re: facial guidelines. Is this making him ugly or handsome?

proportionally, 1 is correct because his ears are in line with eyes and nose. Number 2 is like seeing the character from above because the ears position is higher than eyes. It all depends on your preference in the end, 2 looks cuter because his face is shorter while 1 looks more ikemen. If you pref...

Re: Just curious

Tbh, it depends on a lot of different factors. Some amateur artists I found here can charge as low as $10 per sprite, while those with more experience usually charge $80+ for a sprite. If you need extra like expressions or different pose and outfit, they also have their own price. As for background ...

Re: Shadows on sprites

my suggestion : make the shading stronger to emphasize his face structure, and rather than using black as accent line on his face, use lighter color closer to his skin color. Look at Spiderverse's Gwen below for reference. Notice how the lines on her face doesn't take away the attention from her fac...

Re: Dealing with art inconsistency

Your art in 2018 seems consistent enough to me, as well as those in 2019. I think they look different because the character's hair style changed, along with the color palette and shading style of the eyes. I actually suffer the same style inconsistency until this moment, but it's not necessarily a b...

Re: Professional Anime Artist for hire

Lovely work! What if you do not have a budget? What if you don't have a budget, eh? I'm not Akihiko but I thought I'll help them answer those question since I'm an artist myself. If you don't have specific budget, it may be a good idea to just state that you're willing to spend max $... per sprite ...

Re: Opinions regarding 3DCG VNs

I think regarding first impression about 3d vn, it depends on how you present your game. I mean, does yours have overly sexy character in the cover? If your vn is not about smut, then simply don't present it like it's a smut game. And people who take interest on your vn will most likely read the tag...
