    ART DUMP INCOMING!!! Random stuff: Recent commissions:
  3. So glad I get to head back home tomorrow. Just one more semester of college to go!

      Certainly a much needed siesta in the near future for you.

       

      Also, I like your new avatar.

      Yes! I know how you feel! We'll be waiting for your return!

    School has been driving me nuts lately, so stress-relief doodles are a must:

    I decided to be a good Amy and put together an imgur album for some of my work samples

    I've been reworking my project's opening sequence that I made last fall, which (besides fixing the animation), mostly involves recreating a lot of scaled up sprites to be higher res:

    Here's a look at the city map I'm still chipping away at (It's big!): And here's a WIP of my main character's updated walk cycle, since I really wasn't happy with the old one:
  9. Eeeesh, midterms hit me like a train! Good thing spring break starts after tomorrow :D

      Haha, yup! My professor said I don't have to go to my last class, so spring break intensifies

      Sweet! Enjoy!

  10. Easy stuff - as an actual person, I make the choice to play whichever games appeal to me in some way. The effect is that I enjoy more of the games I play. I'm never going to tell someone their game is bad because they use RTP/pre-made assets, because I don't know that to be the case. It's just that I'm not not going to play something that doesn't appeal to me, and you can't expect anyone else to. It's just as Tarq says - if your game isn't getting the attention you want, you'll have to decide if it's more important to you to change the project to appeal to your target audience, or to finish the project for yourself. There's no right or wrong choice in that regard.
  11. To me, buying a game with RTP graphics is like buying a game with pre-made Unity assets: very unlikely to happen. A major turn-off for me, and I think a lot of others as well, is that RM games get very same-y very quickly. When I'm seeing the same style of maps, sprites, and battle systems over and over, there's a point where a twist on gameplay or a neat story just aren't enough to keep me invested. Personally, the RM games that really stick with me are the ones that go out of their way not to look like one, whether that's through changing the art style, or using a setting/scenario other than generic fantasy, generic sci-fi, or lololol it's a meme game.

    @PhoenixSoul I'm gonna have to make a matching planter sometime, haha. I'll put one of my real cacti in. @Takeo212 Ahh, she's not based on me (I wish I was that tan....), but her placeholder name is Stella. And sure - I'll post some animated sprites once I've gotten a few ready to go. Right now I'm focusing on getting some static ones made for each character. @ShinNessTen Yup!

    @Takeo212 It's hard to use hands when you don't have any! I ended up keeping the changes to Grace's hair, but making her eyes lower again. I didn't mind either look, but I think it matches her portrait better this way. I also added a couple of new characters:

      I don't think I'll be going for one unless I end up with a job that's willing to help me pay for it. I've already paid off my student loans - I don't want more haha.

      NO ONE wants student loans, ever. lol

       

      To the IRS, that's free money that they never really earned...

    @PhoenixSoul Thanks! This month I'm planning to get some base sprites done to match all of my portraits so far. To start off, I went ahead and made my first sprites less angry, lol.
