Links for non-commercial free sprites, backgrounds, etc

#1 Post by AsterX » Mon Jan 06, 2014 1:03 am

Hi, I'm new to the forum but I was looking around and found some VN materials so I wanted to share them.
I've read the terms for each site and I think they are usable (most with just crediting) but I might be wrong....

For this site, go under the items tag and you'll find the material they have. I tried reading the terms in english and I think they said that the stuff can be used but not edit....sorry, not sure. As for terms, I think it's to give credit but there's no mandatory need to report when we use it.
Note: If you click on that little cardboard box after getting to the items tag, you'll see the material there.

This second one is mainly sprites. But I think it's usable with credit. I tried to find the terms for crediting and stuff but didn't see anything. It seems to be included in the file when you download the sprites. It has mostly fantasy themed sprites.

There are two male sprites, one female and a couple CG for each male. I think it's usable with credit based on the terms but it was sort of confusing so again, feel free to read it and judge for yourself. ... c39fe.html

There's three male sprites here which are really nice (at least I thought they were pretty cute =D). Again, the terms seem to be credit if used but nothing about reporting directly to them. You can read it yourself

Seems to be credit when use. There's two male and one female sprite here:

Sprites and a background:
I think these ones you credit and might need the tell the creators you're using it. Tried translating the term to english but it was still unclear.

background, sprites, voice (?):
This one is also credit but again, please read the terms yourself because I'm not certain

bedroom background and mostly modern style ones, credit with source, the terms are listed around the same area (I used google translate and found which tab was for materials and terms so please use that if you're confused)

Lots of unique backgrounds, seems to restrict processing but you can use with credit

lots of photos, I can’t find the terms but they seem to be free and usable with credit (I’m really not sure about this one)

Seems to be use with credit and looks like it can be used for commercial games too ... index.html

And this last one is from pixiv and these are really nice backgrounds so please check them out (they're very pretty). There's not any clear terms except use for non-commercial projects but even if they're not usable, um they're great references too? :P ... a=bookmark

Sorry if I sound uncertain but I don't want to make a mistake and misinform you guys about anything so I would rather you read the terms yourselves than listen to me :|
Hope this helps with your VN making and stuff! I know I can be a bit lazy sometimes and would rather use pre-made sprites than make my own (still needs to improve my drawing skills...) so I'll be looking around and give everyone a notice if I find anything else.
If this is posted in the wrong place or if I should have posted this somewhere else, sorry! I didn't see any posts sharing links often so I don't know if this is right or not :oops:

Edit: I changed the title to something more descriptive. I put 'non-commercial' since most of the sites had terms that seem to mention these were for non-commercial uses.

Edit 2: Updated with a couple more links to background material because I realized I mostly shared sprites
