    Hey everyone! I'm working on a THING for 3DS. Right now I'm willy-nilly stealing art off Google (DON'T TELL ANYONE!), and it would be SUPER nice if I could get an artist to draw some sprites and stuff for my game :3

    This is what it looks like so far with the stolen(?) art(s):

    [​IMG]

    It's called Hinata's Story btw, the village is cursed to repeat the same week over and over and only Hinata is unaffected! It's on a time/day system and events take place at certain times/days but you won't miss anything cause the week repeats so... (I hate games where you can miss stuff!).

    i too would like to know if you coded this (visual novel?) thing yourself, or if you're using an editor or something?

    then:
    1. if you're stealing characters, it really makes little difference if you take art from the web too. why not pull a shades of grey and take your general story and not make it fanfiction, but actual fiction.

    2. artists dont come cheap unless they're invested and interested. (even then, they kinda deserve payment)

    I used to work as an Illustrator and Character Designer for a certain Android Game Developer.
    Long story short: I could do it... only if you excuse my working methods.

    Yeah I'm coding it myself, right now it runs from HBL as a .3dsx -- It uses the open source SDK and Xerpi's GPU render image/font library, but other then that I'm not restricted in any way since it's all in C.

    I'm just making the game for funsies, and little low res sprites with slight facial modifications probably wouldn't take too long to knock out, but I wouldn't be making any money so I couldn't really pay anyone... >_>

    It's perfect! :O

    It runs in Citra, but clunky... runs great on 3ds, and there isn't much to "play", it's just so you can see what it looks like so far if you are inclined.

    Just a little advice based on my experience:
    -If you're worried about not paying anyone, with that attitude you won't get nowhere.

    It's not like every ''artist'' is going to DEMAND you to pay'em.
    Yeah, it'd be nice, because we are giving you our time and our work/knowledge and that must have some price.

    Not all artists are like that.
    For instance, I worked in that Android Project just to GET experience. So we agreed to not to get any monetarial payment as long as I could participate in the project as a designer. I just wanted to know how to work and what to expect whenever I worked again for anyone else.
    And guess what? At the end, that project was cancelled. Actually, the leader of the project released an unfinished game into the Android Store, and it's the worst thing I've ever seen. It was supposed to be a Pokemon like game (in a 3D environment with physics and battles and powers and attacks and all that) and it ended badly (Search PetDroid) That guy didn't used any of my designs to release that game (actually the guy didn't used any design made by me or by the team-mates)
    So anyways... BESIDES!
    Personal projects counts as laboral experience. Even if you can't pay to your team mates, do not hesitate, keep looking for the right persons to work with because one day you'll be able to pay better projects.

    Currently, Im working in comics. Personal projects. Since I won two literature awards couple years ago, I'm writing AND designing my own stories. Which one day will turn into videogames 3:)

    I don't know anything about Hinata, or Naruto... or Anime in general.
    I don't think that I can contribute with something that I don't know.
    Is just that Naruto never... it never caught my attention.
    But if you want to talk about ideas I'm open minded.

    It's fairly well known and there is a character for every stereotypical archetype, so any story could be adapted to use the characters...

    I want events to be timed (hence Time/Day of the Week) but I hate missing stuff the first time through, so I came up with the repeating time loop week

    Big project. But you're using Naruto characters? Or Original Characters?

    What about an action game with platforming elements?, that's the kind of game that's easier and faster to make than any other genre (Unless if you count some puzzle games, pong, or some kind of interactive games, but that's another matter), i'm telling you because with what you stole from Google, looks like the setting for an action 2d platformer game, using Hinata.

    Now, I haven't seen Naruto in ages, but from what i can tell, the main skills of Hinata are healing (big surprise) and the use of the, Byakugan?, the eye thingy that could let you see through the "Chakra" of any jutsu or whateverz, and generic normal ninja skills, that is, her skills are rather limited, so you may want to have multiple characters in order to compensate Hinata's lack of anything else, because really, outside of Byakugan and some lucky hit here and there, she wasn't that "Important" to the plot, until the end of Naruto, but that's another matter.

    Another thing you could do is making a detective game, where you use Hinata's Byakugan in order to find the real culprit of the "Time Loop", this second option would only rely on sprite characters and dialogue, as well some interactive power thingies that some VN have, or just making a "Multi Allowed Option (ex: 1 - Run East, 2 - Run West)" kind of VN, and you get the bad ending if you do it wrong, and the good if you do it right, whatever suits your taste, but that's the extent of the ideas i have.

    Now, for my artist skills... i can't even draw a circle with the mouse unless it looks like a lemon, a yellow megaman lemon to be exact, all i have is some current knowledge of ideas to set up, that's all i can offer for yah.
