        I determined I could catch like... 4 fish at any one time and decided to just go play a real animal crossing game. =\

      People say commission prices for art are way too expensive but often they are less than min wage per hour worked :kaomad2:

        @MushReen 40$ is an extremely good price. They probably spend a few hours on it, probably around 4ish or more (depending on if it's full body, if it's cel or soft shaded, ect.). That's like 10$ an hour.

        I agree. A lot of people don't realize how long art takes. Here the minimum wage is around 11.25$/hour that's 8.85USD. Making a character & coloring it will take me several hours. Making a char walkin' Sprite can take me from 3 to 10 hours. :(

        alot of times the people placing a comis make minimum wage, and so it is a balancing act of what one can afford and what one needs.

      I've been doing figure and anatomy work. My lines are becoming more fluid and my eyes picks up on more mistakes! Slow but steady progress.

      We really need to talk about free to use music/sound effects resources. Everyone uses the same ones and I can't take it seriously.

        sometimes using the tools available is more important than exhausting resources for authentic experience. building a portfolio is more important than floundering. There are ways to make music using only audacity and household items, sames goes for sound effects.

        I... don't. o_O ...but then I have not released anything yet, so it's a wee bit of a moot point. And yes, I agree with chungsie. It's far more important to "ship" than to make the perfect game.

        If it makes you feel any better, I worked on a game in VX Ace that used nothing but sound effects I made from scratch.

        @cabfe ,ya well, my natal language are also french, but from Canada, and this its a good example, sometime , i have difficulty understanding the context of some sentence writing in trueFrench (france).

        the mentality and culture are very different, from one continent to another.
        Same for the english USA and English England or english Canada.

      I feel a lot of pressure to escape my games coming off as obviously made in RM maker. I want people to take my game seriously.

        Have you made a game in RM before? You should probably only worry about that after making your first game or so, the chances of your first game being awful but useful for learning are crazy high.

        Ah, cool. That works then. It actually drives me nuts that people who are going custom in every other way often don't change the sounds. SE is one of those things that's a major part of identity on a subconscious level.

      I volunteer at a therapy farm on Tuesday afternoons and it's so great. I thought I'd hate it bc outside but afterwards I always feel good.

        Being out in the rural air, being with the animals, a couple hours of not thinking or focusing on anything other than the task at hand (shoveling the stalls, refilling water, ect.) is oddly relaxing even though it's labor.

      For my final project for my art class, we can either make something in woodshop or make a 3d animation. But it has to be made using sketchup

        @Sharm you can create a scene with a camera and basically "animate" a fly through of an object. I only have like 6 seconds so far
        you can't really make the camera smooth which is annoying

      Making sprites for dragonbones is weird; having every aspect (arms, legs, head) in different layers is harder than I thought :rswt2:

        If you want smoother animation, practice using meshes and weighted bones with your images. You can make very detailed, smooth movements with it!

      I found a style of making custom tiles that I can actually do but it might be ugly. Is it better to be ugly than to use default:kaoback:
      1. Sharm
        Sharm
        That's a great debate question for general discussion. I don't think it's possible to get a short and succinct answer. Personally, no, ugly is ugly, but using some of the free stuff goes a long way towards not being default.

        I think an ugly art style can work if it looks intentional (e.g. if the whole game is a bit grungy). Otherwise it just looks, well, ugly.

        numbers will never betray you.
        ... or cheat on you or take advantage of you... or... wait this is getting kind of dark.

        @FleshToDust You're beginning to sound like a Math Super Villain. :p
        But I'm afraid numbers can cheat you & take advantage of you when you're gambling. :(
