Hi guys! I am working on an rpg, and some friends where asking if I'd show them how I was doing some of the stuff I've been doing for the game. So I thought I'd record them and make a little tutorial of my workflow. I'm not the best at this, I've never made tutorials before so I'm learning as I go, but I'd love to share them wit you guys if you're interested.


The audio isn't very good in the first two, but the 3rd and 4rth are much better, and I'll continue to provide more from here on as I progress on my own project. [^_^]


BATTLE BACKGROUND 1 -





BATTLE BACKGROUND 2 -




RATLING BATTLER 1 -




RATLING BATTLER 2 -




I'll do more later, if there is anything specific you'd like to see let me know and I'll try to touch on it. ^_^ Thanks for looking!

Also, here are some of my old tiles if anyone is interested in them. Feel free to use them in your projects, even projects you plan to sell. Just put me somewhere in the credits! And maybe give me a free copy if you can? :p

Hey, Hyptosis, welcome! Super to see you here, and your tuts and materials.

I am wondering if you wanted to put a thread in the Resource showcase with your tiles?


(I love your trees most of all!)


So many people love this style.


Good to see you here,


Granny

Hey thanks, yeah I might do that. I need to collect them all and reorganize them though. They're kind of all over the place haha. ^_^

Well, what most folks do is just start one ( you could easily start with that nice bunch of stuff there!) and then add as you find more.


thanks again.

Here is another monster I did for the interior of the cave. I try to show how to build monsters form prefabbed parts as quickly as possible. I'm going to try to do some map stuff next, thanks!

I wanna try making my game into an app because that sounds cool but I am so lost on how to :kaocry:
I found some tutorial but they all seem to use an older android studio(2.3.3)? I think the current version is 4.0.1?
is there an updated tutorial or do I need to find a way to get 2.3.3.?
My heart goes out to the family of Cannon Hinnant. Shame on all major news networks in America for not reporting that a 5 year old was executed by a grown man. Absolutely disgusting.
I hope Turkey and Greece can settle on the resources dispute peacefully.
