Character Creator (update)

#1 Post by usul » Sun Apr 10, 2016 3:12 pm

Hi everyone,

I've posted about this project a while back and I wanted to give you an update.

For those who don't know, it's a character creator in scalable vector graphics. You can select a male or female character, the skin color and a few options for clothing and accessories and download a copy for use in your game.

You can use it for your own projects, either as standins until you get your own sprites, or even as a finished sprites for your game, whether free or paid.

If you can't download the character on Chrome, try Firefox.

If you try it, let me know what you think.

Really cool concept. I especially like the design and presentation, Great job!

I think it has great potential for future use. Perhaps more models, including anime models, would draw a lot more attention here.

A quick note about the UI. I didnt realize that the controls under the customize panel were global. I originally thought that it was in relation to the item, so making that distinction clearer to the user would be nice.

Also, found a very critical, endless loop bug when I was playing with the random function, it was endlessly adding parameters into the URL, which should be addressed as soon as you can.

I look forward to seeing the development of this project, the fact it can export vector graphics is a huge plus and could be very useful for developers.

Thanks for the feedback. Having Anime faces is on the roadmap. It should be done by fall. As is adding more choices in general. I'll look into the other points you mentioned.

Wow, this is pretty neat! I'll be waiting for more variations to come up soon.

Anyway, I tried to put on vest for my character, but it seems the vest's layer is below shirt's layer. Maybe you want to check on that?

Keep up the good work! :D

Just wanted to pop in and say you did a really great job on this! Here is a character I made using your creator:

Thoughts on future additions:

-I noticed that you can't put hats on without your hair disappearing, it would be cool if they could layer on top of each other.

-Nipples and lips stay the same color regardless of what the overall skin color is. Maybe instead you could set a secondary color that is a few shades darker than whatever the creator picked?

-More variety in terms of body type, eye shape, hairstyles, etc. so that someone could make multiple characters that stand out from each other in a game!
