1 Need help with RPG avatar faces on Mon Jan 20, 2014 3:57 am

I need help from anyone who's A) good with art, and B) has some time on their hand.

So, like you all probably saw on the video game thread, I bought an RPG maker on Steam during the Holiday sales, and I'm planning on using it to make an RPG starring some of the characters on our forum.

I can make the walking animation/in-game sprites by myself, no problem. What I'll need help with are the close up sprites of those characters, used in the inventory screen and cutscene dialogue, like so:



They don't have to be this amazingly detailed and precise (although that would be awesome beyond words) but you get the basic idea

While the RPG maker does have a character generator screen, the option used for it are very limited, and the close up sprites show the face from the front instead of looking off to the right, and I don't want that.



And, like Taco said in the video game thread, it would be a million times more awesome if I could have multiple facial expressions with each face, which I could use in cutscenes to add more depth and detail to my game.



Since it's simply changing the eyes and mouth a bit, I could try drawing the facial expressions myself if you're too lazy to do it if you don't want to spend any more time than you already did with my project.

The characters I'd need ASAP for this would be:

-Myself
-AwesomeMedic
-Dewmann
-A Bayleef
-A Mew

I'll obviously need more people (Taco, Katls, any other forum member that wants to make a cameo in my game), but I don't want to ask any more out of this already pretty big order. So, if anyone could do these, I'd be very much obliged.

Also, I found this video while looking around the web. I tried it and shit doesn't work with me, but maybe it could make one of you guy's job a lot easier.



Thanks, guys

it might be a day or so, but i have a tablet to help me in my quest of helping charles in his quest!
um, the only thing that i need is what each character's sprite looks like. charles posted his character but idk what medic's, dewman's, and katls would look like.
i know what i look like and i know the pokemon so i got thos covered i think. 
and you don't need to use my stuff either, if someone else would like to draw someone thats ok with me as well.

sry for some reason it wasn't letting me post.
but anyway i lost the stylus for my drawing tablet.
its just a drawing tablet, not like a computer tablet. but without a stylus i can't draw on it. so i'm hoping that if i buy a stylus then it'll still work. but at any rate my drawing has been delayed as a result of this.

No worries. How much does a stylus cost?

my emotion faces are going to be rather easy. Only the part with my normal face will need some work.

my imagination of your expressions was literally going to be the yellow face with cartoonish emoticons pasted over it.

Whenever we figure out what my character would look like, I wouldn't expect too much would have to be done with my appearance (i.e. my facial expression), especially if I end up being a rouge/thief character and extremely so if I'm not part of the main party and end up being a boss or something.
Also, sorry for not being more involved recently, I've been working out this stupid thing called life. It's such a hassle, you know?

YES PERFECT

I CAN TOTALLY SEE THE PLAYER OPENING UP THE MENU AND SEEING THAT FACE ALONGSIDE THE OTHER MORE SERIOUS ONES

BUT STILL GIVE HIM HIS DEFAULT AWESOME FACE ALONG WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER EMOTIONS

NOT JUST HIS ORGASM FACE

Hey Katls

Something like this, perhaps?



Only, with maybe a big, rogue like cloak on his body.

And don't sweat it about that stupid thing called life. We all have to deal with its shit

so, i got my pen and i can start drawing soon.
i have a couple of questions tho. 
is this going to be a turn based battle rpg thing? or is it more like an adventure thing?
as in, will there be leveling up? final fantasy battle style finishing moves? 
or an adventure thing which wouldn't have battles but mostly puzzle solving?

just asking because if its like final fantasy turn based thing then i could do artwork for special moves and whatnot as well

It's gonna be a bit of a mix of both. The fighting will be turn based and somewhat similar to FF, but there will also be puzzles to solve and keys to find on the maps

Have you tried adapting Street Fighter II portraits?




Or maybe from SvC Chaos?
