Re: Character art - Pricing advice wanted!

It's difficult to judge prices, mostly because there's a major difference between advertising to us at LSF and those, say, on DeviantArt. On DA, people typically are commissioning only one piece at a time. Here, we're commissioning at least three with several expressions. I'd say, bare minimum (USD)...

Re: Lineart help

I have GIMP, so I don't know if Photoshop has this feature, but I use Paths to do my line-art.

Re: Different ways of branching/ presenting a story

What I'm working on, I'm trying to keep my branching with the flow of a mystery, which is a real pain in the ass. I suppose I can call it "Looping". Basically, you have Branch A and Branch B, you pick one and go through the event, then both branches connect back to the Main Branch. The story continu...

Re: A little tutorial for longer stories.

This is the basic "Mountain" that I learned in 4th grade. Where the beginning is the bottom of one side, the climax is the top, and the resolution is at the bottom. I never really liked that version much because it's too broad for my writing style, but I do see its merit. I always preferred Mythic S...

Re: Writing from opposite gender's view

I'm a girl, and I most definitely prefer male characters over female ones. I've always been the type of girl to have a lot of male friends, so it's easy for me to create a believable (hopefully) male character. Even in romantic plots, I prefer male characters. However, this may be just because I'm f...

Re: My voice acting

That's really impressive.
Your voices are really impressive and you have a wide variety of characters.
I think the beginning was very good, as well as the monster voice.

I laughed so hard when you said, "What the heck, it's a puppy!"
And especially at the end, about the football player.

Re: What size should sprites be?

I kind of like BGs to be 800x600 pixels.
Sprites should be no taller than 500 pixels.
The width should be dictated by the anatomy of your sprite, I guess. (:
Obviously you wouldn't make a person three times as wide as they are tall.

Re: All about Main Characters!

For stories and for games, equally, I would say it depends severely on the context in which the character exists. If the game/story is plot-based, the main character doesn't really matter. The main character could be Joe Schmo or Billy Bob, and the story would still be the same. If the game/story is...

Textbox Tutorial for GIMP

I noticed that a few people were expressing their frustrations about textboxes, and how to create them. So, here is a tutorial on how to make a simple transparent box with a colored outline. 1. First, start up GIMP. Open a BG image and notice its size. Mine is 800px. by 600px. 2. Create a New Layer ...

I can help you out with backgrounds, but I'd rather know what the project is about and if it's worth contributing to. No offense. XD

You can email me at a.cardona@live.com.
I'll show you some examples and we can exchange info.

Re: Animes you just can't stand

English Death Note. The voices are so horrible, I laughed.
The japanese Death Note is good, though, but I prefer the manga.

I second Dragon Ball Z. Ick.

Re: WIP - Heileen 2

BTW, I emailed you the next part. (: 'Saint's & Sinners' sounds good, but then you realize it's been used too many times. Maybe if you search for quotes from the Bible (considering the minor religious aspects). That might give you an idea for the subtitle, and perhaps you could also use it as a symb...

This is seriously misleading!
If you decide to add a third girl, stick to the P theme and go for Pears, Peaches, and Plums.
This way, no one thinks you've got a naughty VN when you don't. XD
