Re: CG Question

+1 to not adding CGs until you have everything figured out.

Another option that hadn't been mentioned is making a custom sprite pose. I imagine that it would be a time-saver for most instances rather than a full-on CG.

Re: Original Message Box

What do you mean by converting it? Do you need a higher resolution or a different aspect ratio?

Re: Should I use flat shading or a painted style?

If I was forced to choose, I would prefer a simpler coloring style and a larger variety of expressions/poses. I can't say for sure whether I prefer one or the other because I honestly think it really depends on how well the art compliments the story. For a victorian gothic drama, a painted style wou...

Re: Hatred for humanity

I believe that there is a not insubstantial number of people who believe the human race is and overall destructive existence. The difference, IMO, between those who go on a murderous rampage vs. those who don't, are people with a massive issues with entitlement and control. "The world is terrible, t...

Re: Drawing anime with a mouse

This is the only sample of art I could find where I used a mouse from start to finish. I HAVE had to do inking with a mouse in college, but I preferred to do it on Adobe Flash (now Animate). Other than bragging rights, there really wasn't any upside to doing anything solely with a mouse. The most hi...

Re: Sprite Modification: Opinion?

Production artists are often asked to match styles of pre existing concepts/assets. As long as they can follow the style, this is a perfectly viable (and cheaper) option.

Re: Sprite Organization

As far as I know, the ways to change expressions only differ by the number of layers you decide to use. There's no real "wrong" way to do things, but some ways can be more wasteful than others in either your use of time or number of unused assets. When working on a game where you have limited resour...

Re: How to improve the logo?

So something like this: https://imgur.com/8k8JDGX.png I would recommend it if you have a busy background. If you reserve a blank space on the title screen for the logo, however, you won't need many effects outside of a glow or a drop shadow. The reason I suggested chunky fonts was because the hand/h...

Re: How to improve the logo?

Here are a list of suggestions I have you can pick and choose from: Keep the look consistent with the texture/color of the hand (teal text, no outlines) Choose a thick, chunky font for the text Take out the dark outer outline and just use the drop shadow. Simplify the top and bottom edges of the thi...

Re: [Dating sim questions] Would you date a partner who doesn't put you as their first?

If I knew I would never be the first priority for me SO, whether or not it's for a good reason like ailing parents, I would end the relationship. I'm not so magnanimous that I would be OK with sharing an SO's schedule and mental and emotional energy (basically, I'm the worst candidate for a poly rel...

Re: Best way to write a story starting from the "middle"?

There's a lot of good points here, so I'll leave this list of Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling here: https://www.aerogrammestudio.com/2013/0 ... rytelling/

I think it will help you to figure out a process in trimming down/figuring out what to do with what you've got.

Here's another marketing campaign that used Nazi imagery: https://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2015/11/25/457410075/new-york-subway-pulls-nazi-themed-ads-for-new-show-the-man-in-the-high-castle In general, it's a terrible idea to put Nazi imagery in marketing.

Re: How to Draw Panoramic Rooms?

I made an animated GIF in how I would approach the scene to minimize warping: https://i.imgur.com/vPuuyzR.gif Basically, rather than curving toward a vanishing point, it would go straight to it. Or in the case of the middle windows, I would straighten out the lines to run parallel to the horizon lin...
