Drawing tool and online run

  • #1, by petertermanhansenSunday, 06. November 2022, 10:02 5 months ago

    Is there any recomendations on which drawing tool to use?
    I am working with Incscape and GIMP. But maybe anyone in here has another favorite.

    Will be interested to know.

    And by the way. I see that among others Esmeralda has her games playable online. How to do that ?

    Regards Peter

    I'm not an artist, but I would recommend checking out Krita, it's really nice & it's 100% free to use.

    Also I believe Procreate is really popular, but it requires an iPad. My sister uses it for designing tattoo stencils with.

    Also, if you are interested in Voxel art design, then there's always magicavoxel which is also 100% free to use. wink


    Anyway, I personally use Photoshop myself as it's what I've been using on & off for over 20 years.

    As for Esmeralda putting her gamejam games online, they are exporting for html5 & uploading them to itch.io which supports html5 game uploads - you can upload & share other builds too.

    Quick note: Visionaire Studio html5 builds do not currently have video support, so keep that in mind when you create your games.

    To upload the html5-version to itch.io or gamejolt you need to zip the files the engine exported. (there should be an index.html file, too)
    that was all I had to do...

    PS: keep in mind that you can't run the html5 version wihtout using a server. 
    Upload it to itch.io, if you don't have access to a server and try it there.
