[Artist] Looking for writer to collab on small project

#1 Post by Kuroonehalf » Sun Apr 27, 2014 8:29 pm

Hi! I go by Kuro (or Kuroonehalf) and I'm looking for a writer to partner up with and make a preferably short visual novel. I'm a huge consumer of storytelling of all mediums but I am not a storyteller myself. As such, I want to partner up with someone who can and actively writes and also wants to participate in a project like this.
Update: I should have underlined this point better and mentioned that along with your proposals to please also send an excerpt of a previous work (doesn't have to be from a VN) or what you have of the current one that you'd like me to get involved in, either here or through PM. I really don't know how to say this without sounding somewhat rude but plots are a dime a dozen. I want someone who can actually spin the yard and build a narrative.

By the same token, I am totally open to suggestions for project plots and ideas, though please do take a few things into consideration:
- This is my first visual novel project so I want to make it a realistic scope. Anything exceeding 2/3 main characters (not counting the protagonist) is too much. I still don't yet have a solid grasp on my capabilities to be able to tell how well I'd cope with a bigger project, so I want to start relatively small.
- I am best/ most comfortable at drawing cute and sexy girls of teen to young adult ages, so it'd be best if the story played off of that. I can maybe get an okay-looking guy or a more mature woman with a bit of effort but they're not areas I'm nearly as comfortable in.
- Because of the aforementioned point, Otomes are out of the question.
- Other themes I won't delve into include GxG/yuri,cheating, prostitution and other more extreme themes, mechs, fantasy (in small doses I might be okay with).

And to mention some themes I do particularly like/ would like to work on:
- Slices-of-life, comedies, and similar encompassing themes.
- I am a sucker for summer themed stories. I love the beach, the heat, the summer uniforms, and the swimsuits. :p
- Mysteries/ detective stories.
- Competition/ strategy.
I definitely think my work is best suited for light-hearted/ vanilla stories, but I am also curious to venture into more dramatic stuff.

Also, I have some experience with webdesign (here's my blog for reference) so I could help with that, should we wish to make a development blog or something of the sort.
I am also familiar with a bunch of programming languages and would love to help shape up the engine (I get really annoyed when visual novels don't have simple things like quick save systems so I want to make sure whichever one I work on has it lol).

And probably the most relevant part, here's a sample of some of my illustrations and sketches (including a sketch from Morrigan done yesterday):
Lastly, if you want to check more stuff, here's my Deviantart page.
Cheers. :>

Although I don't use conventional sprites, I think your art is very good.
All of my VNs are at http://wolflore.net NOTE: Downloads are now working.
Some are at http://www.the-new-lagoon.com. NSFW
Poorly done hand-drawn art is still poorly done art. Be a Poser (or better yet, use DAZ Studio 3D) - dare to be different.

You're art is really pretty. I'd like to work with you. I to am a programmer and I just finished a game with someone. I'm kind of stuck on my other projects, so I kind of just wanna do something shorter. I'll send you a PM of some ideas I have, and please send me yours as well :mrgreen:
