This will be my first time trying to do a game all on my own. Went for a screentoned look since I don't think I could make the colors look appropriate.
I will push through my multiple sclerosis in order to get this game finished on time. I will do this! -determined-

Violin or not, but as a former musician, I'm officially interested.
Good luck.

Wasn't sure if I wanted to add another sprite to the game and just keep it Jay. After writing out the first day, I came to the conclusion that I at least needed a sprite for the MC's best friend.

Love the style of the characters and the screen-toned look. Definitely a meta-idea on the storyline!

The idea for the story is cute! I'm always drawn to stories that are kinda meta, haha.
I'm really digging that screentoned aesthetic as well.
Good luck!

Thought to share the flat colors of the characters for reference of their color schemes.
In other news, I have finished 2 of the CGs. Wish I could share them now... ^^;

Are you going to combine your flat color and the scree tone for the characters [just my curiosity wondering how that would look:)]

I like how this is looking.

Good luck with Nano.

Not sure if the tones with the flat colors would look right. Here's what it would: http://orig11.deviantart.net/12e6/f/201 ... 9un8d5.png

What I decided on for the choice menu images. ^^

I like the story for this game and it's cool putting in how the main character is trying to make a visual novel. Wish my school would let me do that for a project ;-;. Anyway, the art is also very good to. I'm really glad you have an African American to =). Love her hair by the way.

Finished a sprite of Jay's classmate. Wasn't going to be that important, but he deserves a backstory. XD
