Yo everyone, I am back! It's been quite a while.
Went through a lot during the last year. I hope I will be able to work on my resources a lot more in 2018.
So... First, I made some edits to my thread. Imo it finally looks well-structured now.
AND... I uploaded new generator parts for you!
1 kid nose and 1 female nose. Enjoy!
Also, one question is still unanswered:
Which female nose would you prefer for your generator?
a) A really pointed one (like the ones in Vision of Escaflowne)
b) The nose of Annie Leonhardt (Attack on Titan)
I'd also like to request some expressions for orc teeth. Perhaps something showing the tusks while the mouth is open, as well as smiling, grimacing and frowning. The orc nose is the best on this website and it would be good to have mouths to go with it.
The female noses should work for male faces too. (They both are less girly than the RTP stuff anyway...) I will look into that.
I will also upload the Annie Leonhardt style nose later. I'll just try to make it work for male faces as well.
As for requests ...
I haven't drawn any eyebrows yet. It's the next thing on my list actually since I absolutely agree that the RTP stuff just isn't enough here. I'd really like to make it a set with the same eyebrows in all the important different expressions. I will try this sometime during the week.
A set of mouths with tusks is a little more complicated. I like that and will try to work on that. How long/big should those tusks be? Just small ones, showing the character is not human (not visible when mouth is closed), or longer ones, making the character look really scary (always visible)?
Expressions - Neutral, Sad, Happy, Angry. (Did I miss an important one?)
I'm still playing around with shapes and shadows to see what works best. The orc mouth is tricky since there just isn't a lot of space left, it's basically around 12 pixels high x 18 pixels wide at best...
A closed mouth version is not a problem. I hope I can do an open mouth version, too.
Thank you! I'm glad you like it.
I am always really busy during december but I think I should be able to finish it before christmas.
Making heterochromic eyes isn't the problem. I have thought about that and I think someone here on the forum already did that.
The real problem with 2 eye colors are the gradients. The shading is different. Some are lighter, some are darker.
Both eye color gradients would have to be the same shade, so that the pupils will look harmonious.
If the gradients don't match, you will end up having one eye with a darker pupil and one with a lighter pupil.
A little update... I had some trouble working on the teeth. The color didn't work very well with different skin tones. So I had to do some trial and error until I figured out how they had to be done to look good no matter what skin color is selected.
This took longer than I thought it would, so I only have the basic neutral expression done at the moment. But I think I did a great job with that and now I can finally make more expressions for my orc mouth
Those are a few examples of the orc mouth with the MV original skin tones.
I just finished working on the different expressions for my orc mouth. I think they look pretty good now.
Here is a little preview...
neutral, smile, sad, angry, surprised
I already uploaded them into my dropbox folder. Each mouth has its own variation, and consists of two images.
When you rename them, look at the other mouths in your generator folder for reference.
The mouths work for female, male and kid characters.
Dad's watching a WWII documentary while I work on some cool assets for my games. I just love RPG Maker!
Also Happy Halloween! Dad's friend won't be coming unfortunately, but Dad will still be taking me to Boxi Park to have some fun tonight! I'll be posting a video on my YouTube channel of the show, and I'll be sure to post a link here.
"Nightmares exist outside of logic and there's little fun to be had in explanations. They're antithetical to the poetry of fear. In a horror story the victim keeps asking why, but there can be no explanation and there shouldn't be one..." - Stephen King
I feel people seek explanation and demand it sometimes in games, but in the horror genre, well, maybe you shouldn't have one. Silent Hill 1 comes to mind...
