Re: Omni's Frequently-Draw-Other-People's-Characters Topic C

All right, I'm in a drawing mood so I might as well reopen requests. Same offers still apply, same three-request limit still applies.

Re: Forever Alone: Nerds the Gathering [Refining Script 3/22

Hey guys, sorry to get your hopes up, but I've decided to take FA:NG in a new direction.

Here's the first rough concept sketch. I hope you can all agree that this is a great improvement, desu. Be sure to check out the blog for the new character profiles!

Re: Some thoughts on being "good enough" and the magnus opus

No matter how much you might cringe at it looking back now, and no matter how derivative it feels, always think of your older work as being practice/a stepping stone for the stories and/or art you're doing now. My first try at massive world-building was for what was pretty much a sprite comic ripoff...

Re: Writing vs. Drawing

Writing is a million times more difficult. If a sprite looks a little off and the writing is baller, no one will care. If the sprite looks good but the writing is boring, no one will care, as in no one will read your work. So I expect that once I get into the art stage with my game progress will spe...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

Where is my Sengoku Era VN? Actual research needed!? Pass. Research is one of the funnest things about writing in the first place! Besides, I'd settle for something as historically inaccurate as Sengoku Basara The VN At any rate, it's not inherently problematic unless it makes people think that the...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

It's more of a complaint about lack of originality/oversaturation/bad execution than anything. If someone makes a moe high school game set in Japan because that's what they like, all power to them, but I'm probably not going to read it unless they do a good job of making the execution sound interest...

Re: Getting sick of Japanese names

I'm more sick of Japanese slice-of-life high school bishoujo and otome games than I am sick of the idea of games set in Japan, though games being set in Japan when the creator's idea of Japan stems 100% from moe, shoujo or yaoi anime is extremely grating. If you're going to make yet another game set...

Re: Ataxia [Dystopia][Drama] (Minor characters added!)

Multiple POVs? Unique, dystopian setting? Appealing and distinct character designs?

I'll be watching this.

Re: How would you define your personality?

INTP just like everyone and their mom on the Internet I live for discoveries of random knowledge, showing off ideas and leveling up skills. If I can't talk to someone about either of those, the Internet, or nerd culture I have a hard time talking to them at all, though I can always fall back on food...

Re: What does people misunderstands about you?

A certain online friend of mine said something along the lines of imagining me as the guy with the lampshade on my head at the center of the party.

Secretly I'm more of a quiet shut-in who can go days without talking to people.

Re: What do you think should be in a commercial VN?

I think the best way to know what to include in any VN is to finish a free one first. If you have a finished, free VN, then anyone can download it and give you feedback on it. You'll also have the experience under your belt to know what you're getting into, how long the development process is, what ...

Re: What is your Current and Future Art Style?

What do you think your current art style is like? An odd cross between seinen, Megamanz, Fire Emblem, and American-webcomic. How would you describe it in three words? Faces are varied. What style or changes in your style do you hope to achieve in future? Or have you achieved your ideal? I hope to d...

Re: Art Dumpage! Show your art ^^

Hm, his right arm (our left) is a little on the short side. Other than that, it's a nice improvement.

Finally have a tablet again, used it as an excuse to draw a random armor design.

Re: Doppelganger : Dawn of the Inverted Soul [Guide up]

Blitzed this game all the way to True End in ~9 hours. It was one epic ride. One of my favorite parts was that sense of achievement from unlocking a given route, it felt like drawing closer and closer to the truth/a path where everyone could be saved, and had that nice bonus of stacking layers and l...
