IM NOT SOBBING AT MY OWN VISUAL NOVEL I DONT KNOW WHAT YOU ‘RE T A LKJ IGN A B OUT
note that i might post some things that arent really spoilers of the visual novel but might be considered spoilers for the blog, due to the different placing of events of the story SO blacklist ‘sombitch spoilers’ if u dont wanna see that
Hey can I ask what program you're using for that visual novel thing?
Yeah! It’s Ren’Py!
it’s a pretty easy to use program - most of the actual functioning of the game is done for you, and generally all you gotta do is tell the program what to do and put in the images
BUT there’s some coding involved because you have to define what the pictures are when you wanna bring them up. like
"image bg bedroom = "bedroom_1"
or if you wanna make a choice menu pop up you gotta say something like (as an example from my game)
“Head to Local Pub”:
"Take a Walk":
S “Ugh…Why am I just standing around here? I need a drink…”
and yeah if you have any questions id be happy to help!! it’s pretty easy to figure out and they have a pretty complete guide here so go crazy 8D
if youve ever wondered what its like to have asthma
tired?? already took my meds and that’ll knock me out soon ???
GREAT TIME TO CODE A VISUAL NOVEL YEP
so about sombitch i kinda made a decision and thats that ill continue to draw the blog’s updates and post them weekly
as time goes on I will also work on a Visual Novel version of the story - which will explain the story more properly and fully on its own terms as a VN, as opposed to an ask-driven blog.
and those will be released as Chapters
I come asking for help with drawing bodies that don't look like Sonic characters. I cannot figure it out. And you seem to know what you're doing by now. So thus I ask for your grand knowledge on art.
ksadksj im not that goood!!! but generally, i think it helped that i started out with ponies standing upright and they’re just slowly getting more human as i improve my artstyle like
heres how they started
then they got like this
then they got hands
then they got sexy
and bam here u go
could work the same with sonic characters! I’d say just slowly work on making them look more anthro as it goes and eventually you can work them into being humans~
