Ren'Py specific questions should be posted in the Ren'Py Questions and Annoucements forum, not here.
Anyway, my question is this: I have zero artistic ability to create something from scratch. However, I have persistence and can recognize good art. Is it possible to get some premade 3d model and then use that with some premade poses or easily altered into poses?
Basically if I can just focus on moving/altering something that exists I think I can figure out a way to make a game with a good story (as writing is my skillset). I am just unsure if this is possible and if so how to get to that point.
I got as far as downloading DAZ and looking at some assets before wondering what to do.
Any help is appreciated.
Before considering the 3D art option, keep two things in mind.
1. It takes an investment of time to learn how to use 3D art programs to the point where the rendered images look decent.
2. Many people won't play any visual novel that uses 3D art.
You can use third party art programs such as GIMP, paint.net and photoshop to filter 3D images so they look like hand-drawn.
There are lots of free drawn sprites and backgrounds that you can use.
You can make a post in the recruiting threads asking for a free artist.
Whatever decision you make on art I hope you enjoy making your visual novel.
I am attracted to Daz because it doesn't require artistic skill to use. However I am open to suggestions for other programs that also do not requires that skill as well. I simply am unaware of them.

*Last Thing Done (Jul 10): Converted LiveComposite Sprites to LayeredImages
*Currently Doing: Trying to work out the transition thing for two character using the same sprite and try to figure out how to redo my multi-barber thing...i.e. see if there is a way to re_do my character callbacks
*First Next thing to do: Rebuild the project with the new RenPy (i.e. with gui.rpy present.), this will mean making some gui art now that I don't have access to the old theme.
*Next thing to do: Code in all the sprite emotion and camera movement for Close Shave Sprite Sections
*Other Thing to Do: Code in all CG and special animation stuff http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 51&t=21978
