Re: tuesday [Kinetic] [Slice of Life] [Short] [Free]

I've read this story somewhere before, in an IRC channel somewhere long forgotten. I liked it back then as well, and I still like it now. It's been quite a while, though, so it's a bit disappointing it's exactly as I remember it. What first appear to be grammar errors or sloppy writing become intere...

Re: Beyond The Boundary, Chapter I [short KN] [mystery]

I was cleaning out my HDD and realised I had downloaded this some time and neglected reading it. Tonight, I decided to change that. To those who are reading this, I may spoil things. My humble apologies. I was instantly reminded of the manga "Bokura no Negai". I can't say I was reminded in the good ...

Re: Naomi [#JamForLeelah2015][Kinetic][Trans Protag]V1.1 Onl

Yeah, inappropriate questions galore when faced with a new situation. The exchange went something like, "I have to tell you something. I'm... actually a girl." "You're a girl." "Yes." "... With a dick." "... Yes ." "... But no va─" " YES. " I liked the touch of Naomi being afraid of watching her own...

Re: Naomi [#JamForLeelah2015][Kinetic][Trans Protag]V1.1 Onl

I think that was a strong piece of writing. The attention to detail in changing up the clothes was good, which is why I'd say I'm a bit bummed the hoodie sprite was used when pajamas were worn, but that's really not a big thing. I actually know someone who's super anxious, so that was a nice touch. ...

I mean the Q. Save, Q. Load etc in the upper-right screenshot, to be exact. I can read the huge white options perfectly.

Re: Naomi [#JamForLeelah2015][Kinetic][Transgender Protag]

Two of my friends recently told me they're trans, so the subject's become rather interesting to me lately. Hope you finish in time~

It looks good so far, but the buttons in the bottom-right are hard to read due to the colour.

Re: ★★★~NaNoRenO 2015 Recruitment Thread~★★★

I like writing. In fact, I love writing. Especially slice-of-life, but I also enjoy mystery. I don't like writing horror, and I hate writing comedy; I think you can be funnier when you're not aiming to be. What I also like is working together. In fact, I'd love it if someone bothered with figuring o...

Re: Cheap Labor: When People Undersell Themselves

I get the feeling that when they say 'time learning to draw' they are not actually referring to 'I spent eight years staring at a piece of paper'. :) No, you wouldn't pay an artist more because it took them 25 years to get X good as opposed to another artist who took only 5 years to get the same am...

Re: Cheap Labor: When People Undersell Themselves

Pricing art is difficult. You not only have a lot of variables you have to attach a value to, but you also have to ask yourself if it's fair to value those things. After all, we live in a society where it doesn't matter if you spent one month learning how to do your job or if you spent two years do...

Re: Cheap Labor: When People Undersell Themselves

I am guessing the simplest answer would be to create an industry standard for prices and quality, but how would someone go around doing that in the first place? Let me refer you to The Graphic Artists Guild Handbook. I think it's interesting you're linking people to a product they have to buy in or...

Apparently my uni made a mistake and I'm no longer registered as a student. ffffffffffffffffffff Oui you might want to settle with the registrar right away. :oops: Yeah, I checked around for it, and apparently the goof they made is inexplicable: they registered me as an employee .

Re: Will you be my friend??? :D

Just being skipped, huh. I feel neglected, abandoned and shunned. These wounds, they will never heal, crawling in my skin.
