I can pixel, yet I don't feel like editing any sprites from any graphic packs to fit my characters. What's wrong with me? ;_; Aug 22, 2018

      Should I feel odd that I can't seem to focus on watching movies and TV at all? I know there is good stuff, but I just can't...

        I don't watch television or movies a lot. People find it odd but I just do not enjoy them often. Either way, I certainly don't find it odd!

        It's probably for the best, it's a huge time sink.

        Same. Just not interested at all in most of it and always get distracted with something else when I try to sit down and watch some series like GoT or something. The only thing that I can watch and focus on 100% is football/soccer.

        I'm with the others! It sounds like such a unique idea and the concept menus look great. One idea had for puzzles: since it's music themed, you could have some "play the tune" puzzles. It could probably be evented if you have separate events that "play" a certain note/tone. Just a thought. :)

      So I have a documented a cohensive game concept containing mostly gameplay with hints of the main characters. There some "screenshots", and I would like to post it, but where should I do so?

        You might read the rules in the Early Project Feedback. It gives some good suggestions of what to post where. Maybe that will help you figure it out.

      Had an idea for the main character of an RPG/game be like a music performer and the player gets to do a mini-game when s/he plays. :D

      Any traditional artists know a comfortable way of drawing? When I do so at a table, leaning over hurts my back. O_O

        Well because i am a professionnal (not really but is fun to think it ) I use my own Drawing table(500$) with a special chair who cost me most of 145 $ and I don't problem i can sit many hour at the same position and I don't have any problem but don't go buy a drawing table xD'...and a special chair is just because me with my manga conception I pass a lot of my day sit so i need to be confortable

        Drawing at an angle (like on an artist's table) can help a bit with back problems. Other than that, a comfortable chair is helpful.

        A techique I learned in college (but rarely utilize myself because laziness) is to draw the muscles' shapes first and then "layer" the skin overtop it. If you've drawn the form right, it should look much better.

        The universe should be threatened by a previously unmentioned threat and the main character will use the power of humanity and friendship to beat the villain, also causing a bunch of collateral damage. The next novel in the series will be called "[Name of first novel]: After the Battle of All Time" and would be basically a Harvest Moon book.


        Go make your million.

        The mistake isn't that bad. So far the character is adorable, but remember in character design don't always go for the first idea.

        There are many, many ways to color something, so saying "here's what you do" becomes a bit impossible. Unless you know what style you're going for the best I can suggest is general stuff that you may already know.

        Like Sharm said, it's hard to give solid advice without knowing what your end goals are. Though, the most basic thing I think is just to experiment. Open up those digital programs you have and putz around. There are lots of tutorials kicking around the net to help you with specific things - but it's good to just get a feel for the program, brushes and stuff by fiddling around for a bit.

      I wonder if it would be easier to convey "open world" with a world map or several 100x100 field maps together? o.o
      1. wallacethepig
        wallacethepig
        If the open world would be anything like a 500x500 map, then neither. Keeping it small is the best option--no one wants to walk a bajillion miles to get to a town to heal.
