If the person doing it is good with Photoshop, it Can be done but it will look stretched. They'd also have to cut the Quick-box off the bottom and reattach it to the bottom of the elongated image, or make it a separate graphic.

A better option would be to just ask me to do it since I have all the PSDs. :)

Yup, that is definitely the better option... I doubt I would have been able to do that properly myself. It looks great!

Since you mentioned asking... any chance of trying that out for the other ones too? *hies*

ALL of them...? What for?
-- If you're going to use full-page NVL mode you don't need fancy boxes. In fact, they'd actually be distracting from the text. Just use the normal, NVL mode black transparency.

True. I was just thinking it would look interesting or unique, but you bring up a good problem with that. Sorry for asking...

It never hurts to ask. There's no such thing as a stupid question.
-- It would look interesting and unique. In fact, too interesting and too unique. This is why it defeats its purpose. It distracts the reader from what they should be doing: Reading the text, not admiring the text-box. (Keep in mind that I'm coming from a writer's point of view, not an artist's.)

All the different parts of a visual novel; music, interface graphics, words, images, backgrounds... should blend together to enhance the story. When one part stands out more than the others --because it's too good compared to the rest, or because it's not good enough to match the rest, or simply because it's unique-- it's distracting and that tends to throw everything else off balance, especially the Player.

In this case, Less really is More.

These are lovely designs teehee.
I probably won't be using them, because they don't fit the theme of my story. I was going to use the sticky-note one, but then I felt it was a bit too...yanno...?

I might be using the 'blood' one for a horror VN I might be doing in the near future.

I like them a lot~♥

A few people have already. My horror set appears to be fairly popular. I do graphics as a way to jog my creative juices, so most of these were just experiments in style. I'd make more, but I have no idea what people are looking for.
