Master and Mage

#1 Post by lijuanjie » Tue Dec 29, 2015 2:23 am

thanks to ds-sans for the logo
Clara Endelburgh (default name) has just turned 17, and has decided that she wishes to move with her Aunt and Uncle in a faraway city in order to further improve her skills as a young mage. Her relatives gladly take her in and teach her the ways of magic — but in a way Clara doesn't expect. Instead of training her themselves like she had hoped, her Aunt and Uncle enroll her in a local school dedicated to teaching students the arts of magic and sorcery. So now, Clara (of whom isn't expected back home for another year) must attend Madame March's Academy of Sorcery with many students she has never met before. Nervous about leaving her hometown of 17 years, Clara has to balance making friends with her magic — not to mention all the somewhat attractive boys on her street and in her classes.

COMMUNICATION AND EXPECTATIONS
Team members will be expected to communicate through Skype and be somewhat knowledgeable on the workings of Google Drive and/or Dropbox (though the latter is preferred). All members will participate in a weekly check-in and are expected to help other members of the team by helping to critique artwork, scripts, soundtracks and any other aspects of the project. The expected completion date of this project will hopefully be late 2016 to early/mid 2017.

We would expect about ten characters in total, all of them having several facial expressions and/or poses. Only the main character and the love interests will have more than five expressions each.

Here are some examples that are similar to the types of art I'd like to have in the game.

In general, anything that's a bit more anime-like, but those links are a bit more specific as to specific styles.
