Re: Is music important in a game?

Music sets a mood in a visual novel and when paired with sound effects, it heightens the experience. A lot of music in video games has become iconic because of how well it's utilized and thus people associate that music with the game. The Final Fantasy series, for instance, uses familiar tracks acro...

Re: My Art Thread. I want to be come better! Please critique

I think the 3D models you're working on have a lot of character. I'd definitely encourage playing around with those more alongside practicing 2D drawing. The only thing I would ask/point out is about how the arms on the 3d model is a tad bit too skinny? It's probably a matter of style though so it d...

Re: My First Attempt at anime, how to make look older?

So right now, the character you've drawn here is more in the 12-16 year old range. Here's what's making her look young: a) Slender body with not quite developed hips and bust. b) Short height (there are short adults though, but it's prominent enough to mention here) c) Large eyes that make her look ...

Re: Sina's Thread - [critiques needed]

I think you definitely went up a few steps in terms of coloring. There's more that could be done to improve that latest character sprite you've made though. - A general rule of thumb of drawing hands is that they should be big enough to cover your character's face (unless it's really stylized anime/...

Re: Sina's Thread - [critiques needed]

A suggestion I have is to make the sprite bigger too. How big of a canvas are you working on with the sprite? Generally, it's a good idea to draw/color big so that way you can resize sprites accordingly and the quality will be better in the end because you're resizing from a high-res image instead o...

Re: Sina's Thread - [critiques needed]

Question: How tall is the sprite supposed to be in relation to the fireplace? I have a feeling that while it's big, the sprite in relation to it still seems small.

Re: My Art Thread. I want to be come better! Please critique

I'm sure other people can probably give better direction than me, haha. Not because there's nothing to critique, but rather there's so many directions I could point towards, but it all really comes down to experimenting with coloring. A lot of experimenting, a lot of coloring, a lot of drawing. But ...

Re: MaiMai's Art Thread [Critique Appreciated]

Recently, I've been doing one layer speed paints with only extra layers for effects. The results have been pretty eye-pleasing although I should get back to doing lineart again.

Re: Opinion on Eyes

I think a thing to keep in mind is how the sprite's eyes will look when zoomed out. Up close, yes, the detail isn't bad and the luminous quality is pretty nice. You'll definitely lose that detail when zoomed out though so that's time that you could have focused on anything else on the sprite. Right ...

Re: Cakey ART [critique and advices desired]

In terms of coloring, you should find a tutorial that you can try following so you can see what techniques you like working with. Color choice wise, your skin tones are very dull and grey. This can work for some styles, but right now like in the Midori sprite, the skin looks washed out and muddy. Th...
