Re: Photoshop Help

Thanks for the help. I'll definitely give some of the other brushes a shot, I'm kind of intrigued at how my drawings will look different with a different brush. All you guys are seriously awesome for all the help you've provided. Today has been a wealth of knowledge for me. Anyways, I've been drawin...

Re: Art for the talentless: Mr Stickman

I'm going to say that drawing/creating anime art through various photoshop/whatever-photo-editing-software-of-your-choice methods isn't as hard as it might seem. Actually, I think drawing digitally might be the problem. I don't know what my problem is, but I can't draw a straight line when using a ...

Re: Photoshop Help

I indeed was making that mistake. Urgh, I'm such an idiot. Anyways, now that that's solved, OMG, YES! This is so useful! My straight/curved line troubles are all over! Seriously, yes! I'm so glad I found out how to do this. Thank you so much. This solves so many things...I just...YES! Edit: Seriousl...

Re: Photoshop Help

Thanks for posting that link, but I can't seem to follow it past the Stroke Path part. I'm selecting Brush and clicking ok, but nothing happens to the line. Any help?

Re: Art for the talentless: Mr Stickman

^ Wow, you can definitely see the progress of improvement there. (referring to lordcloudx's first post) Anyways, I'm still a noob, but I say that as long as you're not going for something serious and you try to give the stickman artstyle some charm, it should be fine. But I don't like that stickman ...

Re: Photoshop Help

Thank you everyone for all the help! I'll try drawing in a higher resolution from now on, and now that I know how to cut and move, I might just use MS Paint for all the lines and curves. I'll also check out the trial for Sai and see if I find that a bit better. You guys have definitely given me a lo...

Photoshop Help

Hi, I've recently started working on my drawing skills and am looking to get help/tips/advice. I'm using Photoshop CS5 and a Bamboo Pen Tablet (btw, is there a better pen tablet to use?

Re: recommended manga(formerly currently reading manga)

Well, I'm currently reading The Lucifer and Biscuit Hammer, but since that was already mentioned, let me recommend NG Life This manga is BRILLIANT! This manga has scenes that will make you laugh out loud and scenes that will make your chest tighten. It's such a well told story with a really likable ...

Re: Need Opinions on Stories

Thanks for the help guys. I had some time during work to think about some of these ideas and how to develop them into a story, but I ended up just struggling. You guys were right about needing a reason to tell your story. I couldn't even come up with some basic characteristics for the characters. I ...

Re: Endings?

I like happy endings, but not happy endings that are just dumped on you, but endings that make you do fistpumps and shout "YES!" and make you marvel at how it all came perfectly together. What can I say, I like to be happy. But putting that aside, I like well constructed endings that you don't fores...

Need Opinions on Stories

Alright, so I'm interested in making a visual novel, and I though I'd start with the story. Anyways, I've brainstormed some ideas, but I want opinions on them. The last thing I want is to spend time drawing scenes and making music for a crappy story. Feel free to rework these ideas, or even throw in...

Re: Double Romance

Oh wow! This was totally great! The art, music, humour.... everything was awesome! Sorry if I sound a bit hyper. I just found out about this site and still can't get over the fact that regular people can start making their own visual novels. It's seriously fantastic!

Re: Guestbook

I'm Ventara (I'll be going by my username), and I'm from Canada. I found out about RenPy by googling how to make your own visual novels. Let me say this first. WOW! I am so impressed by you guys. All of you guys who made this program so easy to use to make visual novels, and all you guys who are usi...
