question about dating sim/visual novel protagonists:

which one of the following do you like the most?

characters with a set appearance and personality, that actually give input and narration and have dialogues with the other characters; as in make them a full-fledged character, like in most VN-type games?

characters with a personality, dialogue, narration and etc, but no set appearance (think hiyoko from hatoful boyfriend) so the player can pretend they look like anything they want them to look?

or characters with an appearance and such, but whose personality can only be assumed via the player choices (like the protagonists from persona 3) since they barely have any dialogue?

#the great school club debacle 

regarding secret-but-not-so-secret projects:

I’ve been planning out and writing down a lot of things for quite a few months now, and actually started putting some stuff down to make sure i wouldn’t back out of it, but I’ve noticed that i’m having trouble equally distributing focus between my characters, specially main-party-members-that-aren’t-the-main-character, who most of the time end up being just furniture and decoration for the actual main characters. that’s absolutely my weakest point when it comes to storytelling, so I’ve decided to work on that before actually making any promises.

so really what i mean is expect me to show up with some poorly planned visual novel i made just to train my characterization skills before i start making things that actually matter

i know it sounds like we care or even worse, that we WORRY about you, but listen you might be way taller and stuff but you’re still two years younger, so how about you sit this one out. no no no we’re not doing this to PROTECT you no way you joker, someone incompetent like you should watch while we battle away. c’mon let the adults do their work.

reploids asked: I hope you are proud of how far you've come and everything you've accomplished because I am


Answer:

i’m getting emotional you goddamn nerd

but actually, yeah, i AM kinda proud! honestly, i can’t believe some of those drawings are less than five years old?

i still have a long way to go, but i’m already so far away from where i started at, it’s hard not to be proud„„ i’ve already walked aaaaalll the way here, maybe my pace slowed down a bit but i’ll get there someday

also specially for you here’s a laughably old drawing of random persona characters

man the last thing i needed was a new character but here we go
vague summary: leila and curtis being the bastard children left behind for political reasons, this is their younger half-sibling— the legitimate heir to the throne of celestia (with a nasty personality to match his status) and keeper of the fourth ancient instrument. thinks very very lowly of his half-siblings and doesn’t agree with the quest to recover the angelus manuscripts being handed to them.
things i have to decide now: his name, the weapon this instrument turns into, the shape and color of his wings
fun fact: yellow is my least favorite color to work with because it looks sick. in fact i tend to associate “yellow” with a color closer to orange than… this. due to this i also have trouble properly complimenting color schemes based on yellow… i’m somewhat satisfied with this though!
random trivia: in the original version of LT mako filled the half-sister role; she kept all of her onee-san personality without the family ties, though
