That's the reason why I placed the holster that way. XD I thought it will look okay if it's like that, since there will be several scenes where she pulls it, but then I guess it looks weird if she gets the gun like that. Not to mention... yeah, dangerous.

I think I'll do some changes. Thank you so much for the comments~

EDIT: Edited Dana's base-colored sprite.

EDIT2: Sprite sketches for two side characters that are, surprisingly, male. XD

Dana's sprite looks much better to me now!

I like the sprites for the minor characters as well, especially the detail on Young General.

Thank you!

Because I can't update decently for the sprite progress and because I'm cramming my homework that I had procrastinated for the past few days orz, here's our first decent screenshot =)

I'm still trying to deal with the textbox orz
screenshot0010.png
Yeah, I remembered just now it needs to be grayscale...
Right now, I removed all the side images, and trying to deal with the oh-so-unreadable GUI now. :3 I'll work on it again after I finish homework~

I hope you can get the textbox to work, I have seen your mock up and it looks good to me. I generally prefer a more distinct text box, actually, so I am surprised by myself.

Finished base-colored sprites of the guard and the general. I'll be working on the next few sprites, which will be a little different from the rest ;) I'm afraid I can't show them here though... maybe sketches ...? Hmmm... ;)

Fixed some issues with the textbox, so I think it's passable now. I'll be replacing the BGs with the new ones, and then I'll screenshot.

About the CGs, Mhai-san is around 50% done with sprite sketches. Once the sprite sketches are done, the lineart and base-coloring will start, then I'll insert the base-colored things as placeholders before I edit the script so it can be finalized already.

I'm not really shading because my coloring style might change, and I wanted everything as consistent as possible, so all linearts and base-colors for now~!

Aw man, I can't believe I missed that you posted!

These sprites look very nice, but I wonder... the other ones are going to be different how? This makes me wonder how special they could be!

I like that you are trying to keep everything consistent. Best to get everything out to start when it looks the same than keep at it for a couple months only to have your last thee pieces look different, right?

Ahahaha, actually, that's what happened on the first version, that's why it sucks so much and I hate it to infinity |D Majority of the sprites there have a new style (which is so odd since the side sprites look better than the main characters's sprites!) that's why I cheated the way they're shown so that it won't look too obvious XDD

And that's why I'm holding off shading as much as possible, because it changes more than my drawing itself. Drawing styles can be easily mimicked for me, but shading isn't. XD

And since I'm inserting placeholders...

Image

Sorry, progress got super delayed; I just got Loren RPG's expansion and I can't stop playing XDD

I actually like the way it looks now, even though they're just placeholders |D I'm not doing any progress on the side sprites since I don't know what other CGs my sprite artist will be making*, but I'm sketching just in case.

While waiting for the CGs to be finished, I'm placeholder-ing everything now! And since it's widescreen, I can't just type "at left" or "at right" to position sprites, so I really have to ATL-position everything. Man, this would take longer than expected.

For all the other people (other than Doyle, since s/he keeps commenting), comments? :)
I sometimes feel like I'm talking to myself and spamming my own thread ono

* We work this way: I hand her a copy of the script with marked scenes where she should make the CGs. There are two colors of highlighter I used: one color for the necessary CGs and one for the "feel free to make it if you want to" CGs. She seems to be skipping the latter text, but she's also doing it sometimes, so it's a bit unpredictable XDD

Placeholder mania still ongoing. I've sent Tag- some CGs to lineart/base-color but I haven't got any form of reply, so I'm still patiently waiting :) The CGs will be a lot of work.

And a little something I did at school:
spritesketches3.jpg
My sketching skills, gah. So yeah, this will be Sgt. Calypso's sprite sketch. I'll be working on it as soon as I finish Dana's second pose, since I can't placehold the earlier scenes without it...

Comments are appreciated :) And sorry for my handwriting. It's like you need to read those notes at the side anyway

I really like Calypso's new design, all your sprites have improved anatomically and I love the fact that you use widescreen. Keep up the good work! :)

Thank you so much! :) It's really nice to hear coming from you~

As of progress, this is halted a little while because I'm doing some school-related things, and since I need to catch up my statistics grade. =_= I'll be still working on this though!

I hope you do well in your school related things. I look forward to seeing more of this once you are able to work on it again.

I'll be trying to get back on track! Only a couple more CG sketches and my CG artist will be done. =)
I'll be editing the script for now. In the meantime, here's a screenshot of my super-late progress.

Poor Sirius, she has to be in-between these two while they're having glaring contests.

Finished Calypso's base sprite!

Image

It looks a bit odd compared to the rest (here we go again...) so I guess I'll still do tweaks.

(I need IRL to stop so I can remember to look at threads.)
Something tells me VN development always revolves around tweaks. I think this one looks very nice and I hope you are able to get the uniform look you are aiming for!

Yes, I'll still have to tweak it a little, but I'll set that aside for now. XD I still have other sprites to work on. It's easier to keep things the same that way, I guess.

Anyway, I got too entertained with this one CG and decided to work on it to give you guys an idea of the style I'll be using.
Image
The one who have read the first version would know who this is. And yes, please don't tell here. XD
And yes, it's colored. It's... a special CG. Special CGs are colored ouo

I just realized how hard to shade better in grayscale, so regular CGs may be effects-spammed like this.
If you think this is simple, please look how I effect-spammed the CGs in Twin Faces lol
