Hmm - it's possibly a difference in styles, but I largely disagree. I find with backgrounds that generally, it takes me more or less as long to draw the lineart as it does to fill the basic colour as it does to shade it as it does to texture it. But I do tend to spend ages before I even start the final inks messing around with proportions and perspective and other things beginning with 'p'.DaFool wrote: Uh, shading is what makes the difference between a 12-16 hour background versus a 30min-1 hour one.
Well, I was just noting that there are some flat styles I like because they're flat. The Feel the Magic and Rub Rabbits intro movies, short as they are, are pretty awesome and very pretty.DaFool wrote: Now I looked at Project Rub... eh, that's too flat. At least have some character outlines, and be able to see the facial features, lol!
I certainly don't think outlines are necessary. Sometimes, in fact - despite my unbounded love of Mucha's work - lines can detract from a perfectly nice image. But yeah, I'd forgotten the lack of faces - I was imagining something more along the lines of this.
Sure, sure. But I fail to see why outlines or even faces are necessary for this. I mean this is pretty hot; these girls are kind of cute, and you can tell what's going on here...DaFool wrote: The whole point is that if this is going to be an ecchi game, it is imperative that players should be drooling over Jenny and wanting to snatch her panties themselves.
Well, fine - if we're grabbing jobs by the testicles, I'll take the backgrounds. I'd offer to do sprites as well, but it makes sense for the same artist to draw both lots of panties, IMO, so you'd best do those for consistency's sake.DaFool wrote: If you really want to do specific pieces (besides the character of course...mine! mine! mine! ), please tell. Otherwise I won't mind doing everything as well lol.
