Balanced Protagonists

Hello!

I happen to have problems with both my protagonist. I fear that one might have a shallow story compared to the other.
Both have different stories but it overlaps each other, forming the main story route.

I hope to hear some tips about balancing story, thank you!

Re: Coffee Mixer [Friendship][Pixel]

:shock: What is this? I'm intrigued! :shock: Anyway... 1) HEAVENS YES! Pixels are a nice way to make me nostalgic and probably more interested especially with games like this. For me, it makes it look more cute! For the limited colour palette, there is no problem with it as long as it doesn't blend ...

Minimizing Project Length

I like to work on multiple projects, especially if I already have experience with it. But for visual novels, it's a whole new world for me. As a beginner, I want to start with a small project, but I tend to make it much longer than intended, and this is not good. I've trimmed down stuff to make it s...

Re: Critique please?

Line art: Avoid using the color black as your line art color. I think this is subjective, however, as black line art can have different effects. But there's something about colored line art that makes it aesthetically pleasing to the eyes, depending on how you use it. Also the thickness of the line ...

Eliminating redundant/insignificant characters

Hello again! I've talked to my sister about my story because she's my idea bouncer, and right now she thinks that I have too many characters. I do not want to eliminate them, if I can merge them into a single character, I'd do it. But if I really need to remove them from the story, then so be it. bu...

♥♥[CLOSED] FREE Anime Sprite Artist ♥♥

Hi! I'm currently looking for projects to partake in, preferably small projects though. I'm not sure I'll be able to handle the burden of big ones, yet. Anyway, I'm only able to draw sprites at the moment. I'm not confident about CGs unless it's a simple one. If you're not looking for a sprite artis...

Re: Create Characters

I suggest you try to find people who would draw for you for free if you don't have a budget. Or use free assets done by some members here in the forum! Anyway, for tools to create 2d characters, the only means I know would be drawing or generators/dress ups/etc... If you plan on drawing, you can loo...

When to use more dialogue/narration?

Hello!

I've been playing/watching a few visual novels I've found online, and in comparing them,
I've noticed that some use more dialogue, while others use more narration.

Now, I believe that both should be balanced, but when exactly should someone use either more?

Pros and Cons of working alone vs with a team

Alright. The title says it all.

I can see the general pros and cons, but maybe I'm just looking at it shallowly, so I'd prefer other people's opinions.

Enlighten me, please.

Wow, that's a long title, but here I go! I have a lot of trouble in drawing males, and I'm worried that I make them too feminine.
