Re: What music to listen to while drawing?

I don't listen to anything while drawing anything that takes some sort of mental effort (these are the pencil sketches). It's like Richard Williams said : "Unplug!". But for the stuff that doesn't take any effort it's a different story. Currently, for tracing my drawings and coloring (which takes up...

Re: Tenkeiteki Tokyo [parody]

Hm, it's been a while since I've posted anything. I'm still working on Tenkeiteki Tokyo although the last two months were a bit slow, there was a lot of Snooker on the television :lol: Still doing the animation for the intro. The short 2 second ones where the characters do a little dance while their...

I'm beloved!

Re: Do you like military?

I'd love to play a visual novel from the viewpoint of a WW2 commander. Regular strategy games don't really have a story, it's just moving units around like in a chess game, whereas books with the memoirs of commanders offer great stories (like Erwin Rommel's "The Rommel Papers" or Heinz Guderian's "...

[jaded, old man's voice]

Finishing a game.... Ha! I used to think like that when I was a young whippersnapper.

Now I just settle for finishing the intro :lol:

Re: When a character design has no face, is animation needed?

After taking your suggestion Fuse and simplifying this design way down, the end result still took 3 hours and it's still rather jerky at 7 frames. :oops: Yes, that's a design that's much easier to animate (by the way : it's 6 frames :) ) The "jerkiness" comes mostly from not using "easing in/easing...

Re: When a character design has no face, is animation needed?

Hi, I see twelve characters that are very difficult to animate (lots of complicated details). Something as simple as the clock face will become a chore to animate if you have to draw those numbers a hundred times or more from all kinds of angles. Or take those stars on the pants. Of course, you woul...

Re: Neural Network and VNs

I don't think humans will be obsolete any time soon. Humans don't serve a purpose, things serve a purpose to humans :D People are still willing to pay millions for paintings. The photo camera didn't change that. The difference is that something that is made by a human took a human person a certain a...

Re: Visual Novel looking for some art/visual critique!

I guess you mean "Panther" ("Panzer" is just the German word for "tank"). Of course, it wasn't officially known as the "Panther". Officially it was known as "Gerät 46", "SdKfz 171" or "PzKpfw V" but the troops in the field gave their machines real names like "Hetzer", "Brummbär" and "Maus" (the last...

Re: Visual Novel looking for some art/visual critique!

Hi, I'm sorry but I have to lay this on you : the wheels on that tank are all over the place. Looking at the cupola I'd say you've drawn a PzKpfw IVD (or one of the previous IV's) or a PzKpfw III outfitted with the 7.5cm gun of a IV (the Germans did this after they've upgunned the IV's and were left...

Re: 2D game animation roughs and improvements

Well, I've changed the axe to a hammer for comic effect but the principle stands :lol: http://www.fusebloware.com/Pics/Lemma/Hammer.gif The thing about anticipation (or "wind up") I talked about is that every action is preceded by an action in the opposite direction.

Re: 2D game animation roughs and improvements

Kudos for tackling animation! :D Yes, you will put in *many* hours. If you haven't already I would definitely check out Richard Williams' "The Animation Survival Kit". If there's only one book you'll ever gonna own about animation it should be this one. The walks do kinda look stiff. Be sure to conc...

Re: Making Visual Novels (For People Who Hate Visual Novels)

Apologies upfront for a long post (vertical-wise) but I do side with Lodratio on this one. Why not go for Western art style instead of copying the Japanese manga style? The European comics are very rich and varied. Moreover : when doing it manga style then you're fishing in a pond that everybody els...
