wow, very nice style you have!! the actual characters looked amazing!
i really liked the main living room with the big portrait, and the dark basement-
good settings so far for a murder mystery!
i do understand what AFRLme is saying about the general "cleanliness" of the vector style, in particular the scene with the boat docks is a bit flat, you have inconsistent shadows, the sign on the far left has distinct shadow cast, but nothing else really does..the boxes upfront seem very flat with no shading/shadows- but in contrast the entrance hall scene has much better shadows!
but hey, this is just constructive criticism! We just want to help you make your game the best it can be-
I hope when i post some of my screenshots that people will take the time to critique my stuff honestly, that way we can learn and get new viewpoints
SO! how are you going to animate these now? I know of several programs that allow you to take a static image like the characters you posted and easily animate them by placing puppeteer points at certain joints and then you can animate them!
thanks for posting these and keep us updated!
*btw, do you think you could make a quick tutorial how to make you characters in illustrator? im kinda rusty with that program- i know i can scan in a line drawing and convert it to vector lines ok, but then simplifying excessive points and grouping parts of the converted image and coloring it is giving me issues
