How odd, we somehow have similar menus yet not. COINCIDENCE!?

Ahaha, I actually didn't notice until I looked at your WIP thread carefully pffffff. Yours looks great though, I hope I can make mine look decent :P

Start/Loading/etc buttons are going to be on the left while unlocked side stories will be on the right. Fun times.

I like this new redesign. Before, he looked kinda... I dunno, zoned out? His eyes have a lot more expression now. :3

I actually liked his original design. It was more...unique, overall.

Lol, they're just different enough, and thank you. I really like how yours is coming it, it's a cute idea.

I like Briar's redesign, he seems closer to how you described him before. Before he looked kinda sad, and now he truly looks "expressionless" and like there's a personality behind it.

As pretty as he was before....~

Ta-dah. Finally have a coloring style I'll stick with. It means I'll have to fix up Amelia's side sprites to make it consistent, but that's just for her hair thank goodness. I will be working on Micheal next. His hair is going to be a bit tougher :?

Now to see what I want for the GUI, hmmm...

Also question, I know how to make a customized dialogue box (I have Photoshop CS2 btw), but how do you make rounded edges? I would like to know how ;3;

...First of all I post too much here, but second of all

WOW

This coloring style seems so much more polished and NICE(And I had liked your old coloring style so that's saying something) So kudos to you, seriously.

I have not dropped off the face of the earth, but might as well since I have started COLLEGE. A good three weeks into it already gosh what happened to the passing time. So yeah progress isn't the best due to homework, but I'll probably get back into the swing of things next month by finishing up Micheal's character sprite at the very least and the GUI.

And look, I leave you with a possible event CG •3•

I think you would be better off not shading the clothes at all.
Right now it looks smudgy and randomly applied to whereever a line is.
In that case it would be better to just use flat coloring with no shading.

Hm, I see what you mean, but I personally like the way it looks and I think I spent enough time on one sprite already. It's not an economic use of my time to redo a sprite three times since I already spent time revamping the design

This WILL be continued, but I have college to deal with so I'm working on a shorter project to practice programming Ren'Py.
