Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
How do you get a background for a VN? Do you have to draw it or is there somewhere that you can get them?
I have NO experience with drawing things like backgrounds so I'm very confused (started creating yesterday)
Reason: Changed topic title to reflect what it's about.

There you can find already made art that you can use in your own VN. They've got character sprites, backgrounds, and other assets too.

If you are unable to draw or unable to pay, these are really your only two choices. Remember to scale everything to match the resolution you're running your game at too, since renpy won't automatically scale them to fit the screen.

Also in the Script area of the coding there is this little spot
Code: Select all
# Declare images below this line, using the image statement. image bg1 = "Background.png" # Background 1 # And a little further down label start: scene bg1

A) Have to go to the free backgrounds thread and find some backgrounds with a free use license to use. Free, but limited to generic locations.
B) Commission (e.g. pay cashmoney) someone to draw them. It's usually $20-50 per BG depending on quality.
C) Learn to draw them yourself.
D) Use a free use photo and put it through a filter. Looks cheap, but useful for really small titles.
