This is one of the most best RPGs I have seen. It looks so well polished and the visuals were stunning. That old-school feel and the use of old-school techniques to create those 3d-style cutscenes in the fights was amazing. Keep up the good work!

Hello. I have been in need of CG's (big pieces of art that are used in the key points of a visual novel story) for my visual novel, that details the effects of bullying.
I am using @puppetbomb's college life assets as the character art, and I have not been able to find CGs in a similar style. Please search up the assets and look at them to see what the characters look like.
If you can create art in a similar style or can create anime-style art that use the same clothing as the characters that would be great.
I am not too bothered by how long it takes to make each piece of art as there is no deadline to this project.
Also, there are some backgrounds from Uncle Mugen that I am using. I will send the background that each CG is set in for you in each key point of the story I will update you with. I will make updates here in this forum, so please subscribe to the forum to get the notifications for each piece of art.
The link to the backgrounds by Uncle Mugen are here: https://alte.itch.io/uncle-mugens-backgrounds Please make sure to download pack1 and view the school backgrounds as they are the backgrounds that most of the CGs will be set in.
Also, each CG must have a size of 1920x1200px. This is the picture size of the game.
I will refer to each character that @puppetbomb made for you if that makes it easier.
Clara is the character who has glasses and is in the blue dress.
Sarah is the character who has the red top.
Tom is the male character.
So, if you have read this far and feel like wanting to make art for this visual novel then that is great. I really would like to try and make this visual novel look as good as possible.
So now onto the details of each scene. So, there are some CGs that I want you to make for the ending of the game too, so some CGs I detail may seem out of place. (Note: There might be several endings but each ending will contain this particular scene).
Anyways, here is the first CG:
-This CG is set in the scene: library.webp
The characters in this scene are Sarah and Tom.
The CG shows them looking at the player, their bodies facing each other slightly to show that they have a rather good friendship with each other.
Sarah looks very happy and has a big grin on her face. However, Tom looks very nervous and seems to be quite worried.
This CG will only be on for a few lines of dialogue but as it is a keypoint make sure that you put a good amount of effort into making this CG.
-The next CG is set in this scene: school_corridor_background.webp
This CG shows Sarah storming off from the player. She has her back turned to the camera.
-The next one is set in the same scene but is at a different angle
This CG shows loads and loads of other people staring at the camera. They should have a shocked expression on their face. Make sure that you do the art for the other people in a similar style to how you drew the other characters.
-This is the one for the ending. There is no actual particular background for this scene so I will give details on this one.
This one is set in a hospital. Tom is laying on a hospital bed, his head on a pillow. He is facing the player and seems to have a slight smile on his face as if he is trying to be happy.
Make the main background to this scene blurred out to make it seem as if it is only the player and Tom. Also, the scene should be from the view of someone sitting next to a person in a hospital bed.
-This is the other CG for the ending. It has the same exact scenery as the last CG but there is only one difference.
This difference is that Tom has his head leaning back onto the pillow now with his smile gone and his eyes closed. This will be the final CG of the game.
I will over time make more details on the other CGs that will appear. Please note that the game will be about just under and hour long so there should not be CGs left. I would say there will be a max of about 5 to 7 or so CGs.
BEFORE YOU EVEN START DOING ALL OF THIS ART THOUGH, I NEED TO CHOOSE WHO I THINK HAS THE CORRECT STYLE FOR THIS PIECE OF ART:
TO DO THIS PLEASE MAKE SOME ART FOR THE CHARACTER TOM. I WANT TO SEE HOW WELL YOU CAN PORTRAY PERSONALITY IN HOW THEY LOOK. MAKE TWO EXPRESSIONS FOR HIM, ONE IS A HAPPY EXPRESSION AND THE OTHER IS A NERVOUS, CONCERNED EXPRESSION. PLEASE SEND THE TWO EXPRESSIONS FOR ME TO LOOK AT THEM. IF THEY ARE IN A STYLE I AM HAPPY WITH THEN I WILL CHOOSE YOU AS THE CG ARTIST FOR THE GAME. THANK YOU FOR EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATES AS THIS WILL REALLY BE VERY HELPFUL! THANK YOU!
About the word heath. In my game it means the british meaning. If you search up the meaning on the internet it should hopefully say. In other countries though I think it means shrub.
P.S. I am making a new game at the moment. I hope you are looking forward to it. It is going to be much longer than this one. I am aimi g for about an hour or longer. It will talk about bullying and things like that.
I have been in need of character art for my Visual Novel, Tom's Story.
If you think you are fit for the job that will be great. However, you must be able to do the following:
-Have japanese anime-style art.
-Be able to draw CGs that are 1920x1200px in size
-Be able to make images that easily overlay on each other to create emotions.
INSTRUCTIONS AND INFORMATION:
Hello, I am working on a newly made visual novel called Tom's Story. The following game details the effects of bullying and how such things effect people.
What I am wanting are three characters. These characters have descriptions to do with their personality, and I would really like it if you could find a way to make the personalities be reflected through their presentation:
Clara - A very nervous and timid girl. She has glasses. She is the life long friend of the player so perhaps to reflect on this, make her look like someone who is very relatable.
Sarah - Very out there and confident. Is easily made angry and can really get into a bad mood. However, she is quick to say sorry and is very forgiving.
Tom - Massive fan of sport (P.S. He is the one targeted by the bullying in the story of the visual novel). He always tries to be strong but in the inside is actually quite weak.
NOTICE: There is a way that I would love the files of the art to be done so I would love you to listen carefully to this part.
For each character you must make the following images:
clara body.png - This is just the body of Clara. No eyes or mouth must appear on this, as they are what will change for each emotion.
NOTE: Make sure the parts of the image positioned properly so the images of the parts of the characters body (the eyes and mouth will be seperate images + the rest of the body will be in one image) can be easily overlayed to create an emotion on the body image.
c = Clara
s = Sarah
t = Tom
(First letter of name)e = (Name)'s eyes
(First letter of name)m = (Name)'s mouth
(name) body = (Name)'s body
cm nervous2.png (If a mouth image ends with 2, then it is an open mouth image, however if it does not end with 2 then it is a closed mouth image)
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT THE GAME WINDOW IS 1920x1200 in size. I WOULD LIKE IT IF YOU COULD GET THE IMAGE HEIGHT TO BE ABOUT 1080px.
If you do not fully understand anything said please ask as that will be very helpful.
CGs that might be required will be given during development. I will give updates on art required. I am not too bothered about how long it takes, if it gets done that will be great! During that time, I will be planning the rest of the story. Thank you so much for those who help!
After being tucked away in my computers files for a good year or two, I thought that to get myself some popularity, before releasing a game I am working on, by showing Dolly to the itch.io community.
The game is very short and follows a simple yet rather frightening storyline.
The story based itself around a nightmare that you, the player, have been experiencing. It includes a girl that asks you to find her doll, and if you do not do what she asks she’ll stay with you forever.
This game might be able to be built upon, so that might be an idea for some of my later releases.
Thank you to those who view, play and enjoy my oldest complete visual novel. It means a lot!
Here is itch.io link to the game:
DOLLY - Always listen to little girls.
Hello everyone! Please comment. I made this 2 or so years ago so it may be a bit bad here and there.
Do not worry if you do not like this visual novel, I am making a much better and much improved one, which I hope to release sometime soon. I hope you all like it!
Hi, I really like these assets and I would like if I could get some permission to use them in a visual novel I am trying to make. It's called Tom's Story and I only recently started work on it.
If I could that would be great.
Also, if I ever do plan on releasing the project, I will make sure that I do not use for commercial gain.
