That is Sakimichan's art, isn't it?
d_a_renoir, you did a good job copying the coloring style and an excellent on job on individual art. I'm confused did they attempt to American-ize all the guys? The original looked like Alan, yes, but that wasn't really necessary. I do like the sprite art for the guys in this version.
Btw, I think your coloring on your ''fake'' CG was fine. The only things that seemed off were Wench's hair (it was kind of messy like she'd been attacked by rabid corgis) and the positioning. Wench's hand position made sense but looked awkward.
Naw, just Eduardo (Shin) and Christopher (Soushi). Eduardo was seriously hot, so I wasn't complaining, but now that they've lost the artist who did the original art... We had to make do with the shitty edits.
The hand... Not sure how it's awkward. Tested the pose via mirror and that's how it looked like to me, so that's how I drew it.
And so what if Wench's hair is a mess? Got a problem with messy hair? Pirates don't have hair products! >:D Snark aside though, I think this is a YMMV thing. Hair's got a lot of "choppy" strands, yes, but I don't think it looks messy. It just has a lot of strands. In Alan's CG that's how her hair looks like, and in Eduardo's Fairyland. Lots of thin, choppy strands. I guess the original art is inconsistent too *shrug*
I just went back to look at it: The hair isn't as messy as I thought it was; just that there were more strands in the front so it kind of looked like it. Clearly I should make sure i have the art next to me before I start critiquing. Maybe the hand just awkward to me because I think that would an uncomfortable position to be in?
Well... She was being pinned against a tree because Patchy is such a horny bastard. It definitely ain't a comfortable position XD
That being said, it probably isn't an accurate pose because I wasn't being pinned to a tree by a horny bastard, but it's the best I can do. I don't see much reference for such situations.
Hm... looking at it, I don't think it's that awkward of a position, but I would expect to see some creasing of the skin at the insides of the joints of her fingers, rather than the clean, slightly rounded angles shown in the picture - it makes her little finger look unusually long and stiff. I also wouldn't expect to see so much of both the side and the palm of the hand at the same time. So that may have something to do with why it might look slightly awkward?
Not that I can draw a hand anything like nearly that well. Your artwork is very good!
I don't understand what's going on anymore
What's happening to the plotline? I don't even...
BUT. C. TIS THE ULTIMATE ANSWER.
Wait, I thought I already did? The pointer finger and middle finger are covered by the other fingers, so no creases are showing. On the pinky and the ring finger, which are slightly more open, did have the creases. Unless you meant the thumb, coz that one I totally forgot.
Welcome!! Everyone is wicked nice here. ^^
d_a_renoir, your art is gorgeous.
(*coughs* in the direction of the fanart thread)
I'm referring to the pinky finger. You have a tiny little bit of a crease shown at the middle joint, but when I curl my fingers like that, the skin creases much more than in your drawing - the creases end up defining most of the inside line of the finger, rather than there being a straight line from joint to joint, and there's not that much space between pinky and palm, since even with the hand loosely curled, the pinky just isn't long enough. Like so.
Obviously since this is anime-style artwork it's more stylized and the fingers are longer and more slender than my stubby ones, but I'd still expect to see more creasing on the inside of the joints, especially at the base of the finger where it meets the knuckle.
Take with a grain of salt, though. Like I said, I definitely can't draw half as well as you!
Maybe we should just stop fussing over details and bask in its general glory.
Of course. I wouldn't have said anything, but I know at least when it comes to my writing that as happy as I am to hear people say they like it, I can never, ever get people to go into as much detail as I'd like about what did or didn't work for them. "It's good" is always wonderful, but specific information about what I could be doing better is worth its weight in gold.
Thanks Otome...and oooo, Goo Jun Pyo...i always liked your hair , hehe >.>
Thanks Syncronicity....and yes i still want in :P this is the best family ever!!! \O/ (mine always looks at me like i am crazy when i talk about things like otome games, manga , anime and so on >.>)
Oh hey, Eduardo's sequel has been released on Android!
...And thanks to Cap'n's route, any references to him being the Pirate King or anything about the Pirate King's Treasure are making me side-eye so hard. XD
Yeah, I made the crease shallow on purpose because that's how the Voltage artist drew it >.< Since I was attempting to pretend that the CG is legit, I can't draw in things the original artist didn't.
Well, that makes sense, then!
Good evening, Broken Forum!
Do any of you play the Gree versions of otome games? Right now, the New Years event for Be My Princess owns my soul. So many love factors needed… ヽ(；▽；)ノ
Hope you enjoy your time here!
Also, oh hey d_a_renoir, I have definitely creeped on your tumblr and I think I even liked your doctored CGs when you first posted them (●´∀｀●) *creeps at the edges of the tumblr fandom*
Creeper time: you're one of the members of this forum that I noticed before I signed up and delurked. You saying such nice things about my LP now makes flail happily and unable to string together a proper sentence.
Also, I really want Alan's route. More and more with every passing encounter.
And on that note,
☆.。.:* Update time! *:.。.☆
I think I remember your name popping up in my dash a couple of times, but that was before I discovered Broken Forums. I don't even know what I was looking for when I stumbled across this thread, but hey. Not sorry that I did. Nope. I'm not sorry I just got sucked into yet another website that would consume my life.
And then I had issues with my wifi.
Sorry for the unexpected delay in update! Here it is now!
Harem option is always the best option! Let's invite Alan into the harem!
And bring your luscious hat~
3P ENDING GET!!?!?!
Oh boooo, why do you choose now of all times to be sensible?
While Alan gallantly proclaims that he shall graciously give us the information he has, the crew mutters amongst themselves that he should have just done that in the first place.
I just love how everyone finds Alan to be a nuisance, I really do.
Alan takes a dramatic stance and declares:
Oh god, are we going to have to go on an extended journey with a dog demon and his quirky companions to collect jewel shards while avoiding his -glamourous- brother? Because I don't think we have time for that many story arcs.
The rest of the crew are somewhat baffled by what this means and by my completely random anime tangent.
Alan deflates a little bit.
"Well, I don't actually know the details…"
"But the real Morgan once told me that it's dangerous to use the Rain Stone."
"…It could become unpredictable."
We gave the magical UNSTABLE super weapon to the crazy.
It's only hinted at, but if the Rain Stone affects the weather by creating storms, it could feasibly destroy an ecosystem if over-used, or even upset the natural balance of the entire world. Who knows how weather magic works? It's got to get that water from somewhere, though.
Or cause global warning or melt the polar ice caps or I just dunno BAD THINGS.
Oh god, you know the situation is bad when Patchy is the voice of reason.
Okay, on one hand, he's trying to help. He wants Cap'n back, and so do we.
But if it were as simple as just "hurrying", we'd have found him by now.
We've already done all that we can think of here, and all we've accomplished is wasting time and bickering.
…we kind of fail as a pirate crew…
Of course, Alan chooses now to share one last tidbit of information.
"Apparently, this swordsman defeated a monster there. A beast called a hydra."
Okay, Alan, now you're just being coy.
Also, there's another hydra besides the one we fought before? How many hydras are there in this crazy universe? Do they just pop up wherever the plot calls for them?
Anyway! Such a huge and terrifying monster! There's only one person we know who could have fought it…
We have a lead!
Thanks, Alan, but still, YOU COULDN'T HAVE SAID THAT AT THE START?
Awwwwwww, he misses Cap'n, even if Cap'n is an impostor!
Alan wanted to tell us about Capn's whereabouts all along, but was too prideful as a "rival" captain to tell us right out. So he waited until we brought it up. What a cutie, hot damn, this man.
When I and the crew thank Alan, he gets flustered.
Pffffthahahaha, look at that blush face.
I shall have you yet, Alan~
I <3 u Alan.
Why don't you have an epilogue yet
Having steered us in the right direction for finding Cap'n, Alan resumes his usual posturing, declaring he'll defeat Cap'n, take the title of Pirate King, yadda yadda.
Oh yes, I will be looking forward to it~
I like how even the characters feel like they can't be mean to Alan right now. He was pretty helpful, so they can't dismiss him like they usually do, but then they don't have any idea how to deal with him.
With his usual bravado, Alan laughs raucously and swaggers away towards the center of his ship to call orders to his waiting crew.
As the Comedy Pirate crew springs into action, I catch a brief glimpse of Fuzzy across the water.
Ah! Fuzzy! I miss you! You're welcome anytime!!
But unfortunately, the Comedy Pirates have other obligations, and while I stare longingly after their entertaining crew, they depart while Alan's laughter still rings through the air.
Once they were out of sight, the crew gathered once again in the navigation cabin to plan our next course of action.
Russell suspects that this may be a ploy to lure the ship of the Pirate King into a trap.
But Alan's probably not bright enough for that.
Also, as a major competitor, Alan wouldn't be in a good position if Cecil won the war. He probably wouldn't live very long if Cecil got his way
The crew is split about evenly about whether or not to believe the information Alan gave us.
While the others continue to debate the pros and cons of trusting Alan, Nathan quietly watches me. I haven't expressed an opinion yet, and he's obviously noticed, because next time there's a pause in the conversation, he softly asks me:
I like how at this point, all the choices we're getting are just different ways to get to the same conclusion. [/sarcasm] What happened to choices that impacted events?
✧.*:･ﾟWe've heard from Alan that Cap'n may be in the south! What should we do with this information?*:･ﾟ✧.｡*:･
Sorry again for the delays!
*slithers off to resume playing Be My Princess* Just one more gacha… ｡:ﾟ*+;(●´･д･`●);+*ﾟ:｡
I wish we were on your route
Whenever I play a Voltage game and have a "stop-giving-me-feelz-not-your-route" moment I just....
Don't worry Alan, I'm coming for you!
I think Alan isn't smart enough to trick them deserves to be trusted ♪
Believe in Alan.
Believe Alan, of course.
A: Believe Alan. I love that crazy dude.
Alan x Cap'n is my bromance OTP 5eva!!1!one!1
Also, it's my birthday today! My lovely partner is taking me on a short trip interstate, yayayay. So... uh, hopefully my addiction is not so bad that I can't go for 6 days without logging onto this forum (hahaha... I'm doomed.)
((Just in case anyone wonders why I'm not spamming them with Likes like I usually do for the next week))
Hehe thanks, and I already am enjoying my time here *glances at all the other things she needs to do and sighs before continuing to read around* >.>
And I am playing the Gree Version of Be My Princess too...and I need my love factors to continue the mission waaaa T_T I can already see the failure when the event will be over lol (why did I have to go for a second prince when I just completed a route...whyyyyy???? *wails* i blame it on curiosity....>.>) That takes even more from my time, always checking if I have enough time to go partying...(never thought i would say that xD)
And let's go with A, we should believe Alan...he really misses Capt'n ...plus he prolly wants to win some bonus points with Wench with this >.> Can't wait until we do his route hehe
Happy Birthday Sedrine!!! *throws confetti* and yay for trips, best bday gift ever, in my opinion...that and books/manga/otome games >.> aww we will miss you until you come back (bring back souvenirs and cookies and/or cake :P)
IS THAT INUYASHA REFERENCE I SEE THAR!?
BELIEEEVE IN ALAN! Of course. Hey, he's already risking it by coming to our ship, why not take the trouble in believing the only lead we have?
Yup, Alan has proven over and over that he has teh best Capt'n radar and that he is ridiculously stupid nice.
He would never be intentionally mean, and I don't think he could tell a lie to save his life...
I say that we Go South, which implies the believing in Alan anyway, but also makes us sound more proactive and determined and confident and all those other totally non-protagonist sorts of qualities.
...and the longer this LP goes on, the harder time I'm having shipping the protagonist with the captain. Captain/Alan is so clearly the OTP of this game! They can go off and be happy together with Fuzzy (OT3? Y/Y?) while we take on the rest of the boys in our mighty floating harem and run the ship ourselves.
Yeah, I'm going to say C: GO SOUTH YOUNG WENCH as well. B-because it's not as if we believe Alan or anything! We just want to go on a southern vacation! Yeah! baka.
Also, dangit, so close to adding Alan to our harem. So. Close. Curse you, Voltage!!
A, believe Alan!
Because I have seen Alan's route and he's OBVIOUSLY too stupid and likes us too much to mislead us into a trap: BELIEVE HIM LIKE WOAH.
I mean, the most horrible thing Alan has done so far as I know is being such a creepy rapist. Other than that, he's too straightforward, dumb, and full of himself to pull off such a trick.
C, Let's go south!
Why would Alan lie to us?
Believe Alan of course!
He wouldn't lie to us, right?! Since it seems it's obvious that he is as much (if not even more) in love with Cap'n as Wench, hahahah. I SHIP IT.
Happy Birthday, Sedrine!
I am touched and pleasantly surprised to hear read that I was a user you noticed before joining officially! I'm surprised, though, I never figured I'd make enough of an impact to warrant notice.) I'm glad you're happy to hear that, though! And yes, Alan's route is fantastic so far. He's insane, though, but my God, the Rika's crew is precious and it's obvious they all care for each other and it's beautiful.
Happy Birthday, Sedrine! Have fun on your trip and may the force be with you while you endure suddenly being cut from BF! I'll shut up now, I'm sorry. I hope the day goes fantastically for you! XD
Why can't Fuzzy have a route again?
All the choices are the same damn thing, so I'm not voting this time around. I will say, though, that it took me a good five minutes to get the Inuyasha reference.
Updates!! Yaaaaay!!!! I vote A for Alan!
