Lovely lineup! <33
It's a kilt, not a quilt (I'll forgive you since you're not a native English speaker). I am curious as to why they're wearing one, though.

(off topic) ...you know,I should know that. I was in Scotland and I love men wearing kilts and sporrans and... *gushes*. Something possessed me to use Qui instead of Ki... I blame talking to Quildreen on Skype too much :'D

STILL, COMPLETELY LOVE IT.

Yeah after I said it I remembered you told me on Twitter you'd been to Scotland but I figured I shouldn't hold that against you since it was a while ago and you've only been once. Anyway, probably enough off topic. :P

I'm trying to learn basic coding. (I've made the mouse cursor a paintbrush.)

1. First impressions in general? (On story, game type etc.?)
I tought it looks really unique and cool! It made me really curious about the story and the characters seem really fleshed out!

2. Any characters that you're already interested in? Or characters you're already skeptical about?
Really loved what little we know about Arthur so far, he seems really adorable and I'm excited to see him react within the game's story. But in all honesty, I liked all of them. I really wanna see how Alicia interacts with all characters, somehow the paternal relationship between adults and kids in games always interests me.

3. Which character will you probably try to romance first?
I can't tell, really! I loved all characters so far. I might need to decide during gameplay.

4. Comments on the art style?
LOVING IT. REALLY loving the use of textures there! It looks amazing! <3


I'm really excited to see this done! Good luck nanoing~

Woah, that background looks great! What technique did you use to make it?

Also, Morwenna's eyes stand out a lot, but I guess that's a good thing.

Thank you! I tried to make the images look a bit like watercolour on card to help with the "painting" motif this visual novel has.

For the textured effect, I took a piece of painting paper with a watercolour wash on it (I did the watercolour wash myself) and scanned it into my computer. I digitally edited it and used it as a top layer in Photoshop, to make all the images look textured.

This watercolour texture was originally purple and is currently used as the background image of my Tumblr blog. XD

The lines in the background is coloured brown to make the characters (who have black lineart) stand out more. Without the texture, the backgrounds are actually coloured very simplistically. There's almost no shading--but that allows me to work more quickly for NaNoRenO. ;)

Nice, that's a pretty smart way to do it. I think I'll even try something similar myself :p
The only thing I see that might be a problem is that the backgrounds could end up feeling similar if you use the same texture for all of them, but you can easily avoid that by making new textures or rotating/flipping the original texture.

Since the original texture file was so big, I actually cropped different sections of the texture for the different areas, so nothing would overlap when scenes transitioned to other backgrounds.

Update: I've also posted a three-note guitar strum I made for my visual novel's splash screen: Link.

This is from a deleted scene, but this image shows the overall art style for the "mini CGs" this game has. Original link.

By complete chance, I heard a song today that not only was about a guy called Nigel, but also seemed to fit my character Nigel's situation to a tee.

The song is called, Making Plans for Nigel. And it's a British song from the 1970's--Just the sort of "Mod music" Morwenna would listen to!



I've been listening to it a couple of times, and it's actually helped me write Nigel as a character, in terms of his current outlook on "his world".

A lot of people seem to interpret the song as the story about two parents planning the future of their son. But when I heard the lyrics, I interpreted it as being about a man with a simple, normal life, and is perfectly content with it. But the Fates (whom I interpreted as the singers of the song) have other plans for him...

Poster designs!
Image Image
RAF "RAF" meaning: The image is of the RAF (Royal Air Force) symbol. Morwenna (one of the main character) wears jacket with the RAF symbol because she's a mod (meaning the British youth subculture from the 1960s). Mods are known for wearing these jackets (to keep mud and debris off their suits while they ride their scooters).

"Snip Snip" explanation: The quotation on the poster is from the game.
Nigel: "Has anyone ever told you that you're kinda weird?"
Morwenna: "Oh yes. Hardly a day goes by."


I don't know why, but I really like this one poster design in particular.

The figure is Morwenna. Saying anything else would be a big spoiler.

Hey wait, did I not comment on this thread yet? Dangit >3>; HEY! I love your art style! Just the right mix of cute, serious, stylised and detailed. Really distinctive and cute!

I dig the concept, the diversity, the different fashion trends, the somewhat androgynous ladies, the idea of playing a Canadian bisexual middle-aged adoptive dad because when have you EVER seen that in a VN... Yeah I am into pretty much everything about this XD Oh, and I would chase Arthur first... who can resist a man in a kilt? ;p

I find all your characters pretty interesting, but actually most of all I'm looking forward to seeing Nigel interact with Alicia, because compelling parent/child relationships are pretty much absent from games at large (well, except grizzled misanthropic murderdad + little girl needing protection, which frankly I am well sick of). And well-written adventurous little girls are such fun characters XD
