Great Idea but no Visual

  • Hello.

    Want to know what to do when you got some great idea but isn't capable of creating visual art, sprites.

    There is always the free ones, but you know.. they will never be what you want.

    So I got to the conclusion that If you don't know how to create sprites (I Mean nice ones) your game will hardly be popular <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> . Unless you create something really simple (balls,squares and triangles).

    My only hope are some friends who are skilled at drawing, I will talk to them but dont know if they will do it.

    Until them I'm limited by this =/

  • Hey Splash,

    I know how you feel mate. Except for me the harder part is the technical side. I could create a game with great graphics but if it doesnt run smooth people wont play. If you want to be the Jack of all trades, we both just need more practice in our weak areas.

    Your only limted by your graphic ability - Until you start practicing, slowly improve your skills, then a year passes and you think back with amazement at the progress you have made. I believe that if you set your mind to it you can do it.

    Collaboration is always good though - Id like to see a Collab section in the forum to be honest.

    Yeah I was wondering why there isn't a Collab section.

    I Don't think that with practicing I will achieve my goals, my skills are really bad.

    I am a Programmer, not a Graphic designer.

    Take for example a small team that I heard of. 4 Programmers and 1 Designer. They just needed someone to draw some animations , and it was the designer job.

    The question is to find the people who like to do this job. There are some pixel art forums, but most will only work if you pay. That's sad, because most of us aren't making money with our games right know. IMO the best option would be to give the designer a parcel of the sales.

    For know the ideas just are kept in a to-do box =/

  • Thx.

    Kyatric can you move my topic to the Open topic ?

    EDIT: SH*T <img src="smileys/smiley7.gif" border="0" align="middle" /> I was about to send a huge text , but I was not logged in (I was but session was over, dunt know).

    Bah don't want to write it all again.

    I was saying that I am a noob, and found out about pixel art to be something like this:

    piq.codeus.net/draw

    and It looks more easy than I thought (drawing on Paint.net). So Im gonna take a chance , read more about it,and the best softwares to make like that website (filling up squares/pixels).

    Thx

  • Depending on the project goals i would be willing to have a look at what you need. If it would be my kinda thing and i feel like it.. who knows.

    A collab section would be great for that!

    I would probably settle for a % of sales if the game would be sold and/or a mention in the games credits. Make us a collaboration section please? whehe :)
