Looking for Japanese City Interior BGs

#1 Post by Jackkel Dragon » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:26 pm

Not sure if this is the right subforum, but I couldn't tell where else would be best...

I'm looking for some background assets that are roughly 1280x720 or that aspect ratio, with the main part of the background being centered for cropping (like portrait mode). These particular backgrounds I don't feel like I want to be commissioning specifically, because the project they are for is planned to be released for free.

So, are there any good places to find backgrounds such as these, particularly for a Japanese city? I already have a number of exterior backgrounds from DLSite (minikle), but I'm low on interiors that fit my needs. In particular, the ones I'm looking for right away are:
  • Convenience Store
  • Apartments (particularly single-resident and Japanese apartments)
  • Bakery
  • Mall/Department Store
  • Small stores (books, etc.)
  • Restaurant
  • Offices
  • Volleyball Club building
I'll take another look at the sites I know about that have CC backgrounds, but I'm having trouble with finding some of these (and getting them in the right style).

You might have to consider buying some packs. This is one site I really like https://www.dlsite.com/eng/fsr/=/langua ... /fs.header

And some of what you mentioned, Konett has made a few really nice things
https://konett.itch.io/
and this is their forum thread:
viewtopic.php?t=28840

and obviously there are a lot of other places but I find it difficult to find things too, especially mixing and matching art styles. That's why hiring an artist is great but also obviously expensive and unrealistic for a lot of us.

I believe the Uncle Mugen thread has a number of backgrounds similar to what you're looking for. It may take a bit of searching (mostly because it's a looong thread and a number of backgrounds aren't shown on the first page), but he does amazing work!

Thanks for the input. For now, I've decided to go with buying some more royalty-free packs from Minikle, since I found most of what I need among their other packs. I just wish I didn't need to spend almost $100 to get what I need... (At least I can use them in other projects as well, as opposed to custom BGs of unique locations...)

I love Minikle's stuff and they're always adding more I think so I think those are a good option
