Finally! An updated tutorial on how to create beautiful background graphics for use in Visual Novels or OELVN using Google Sketchup and Photoshop

October 22, 2011

Finally! An updated tutorial on how to create beautiful background graphics for use in Visual Novels or OELVN using Sketchup and Photoshop! Perfect for people like me who are untalented in drawing backgrounds. I finally managed to streamline the process enough to create a tutorial so I can share my technique. With this, it is now one step closer to that quick, cheap and beautiful background graphics that are inaccessible for us mere mortals…

Or you can view the video tutorial [HERE] in fullscreen. I recommend viewing it in 720p for maximum clarity.

With this now all of our backgrounds will look the same… Lol!

Note:

  • This tutorial is perfect for outdoor shots but not applicable for inside shots especially rooms with limited light. I’ll do a tutorial on that soon…
  • While I used SU Podium Renderer on this tutorial… it is expensive and can be replaced by any other renderer ( there are several freeware renderers available) as long as it has the option to render in clay mode (textureless). One good example is Kerkythea [ www.kerkythea.net/joomla/ ] and IDX Renditioner Free Edition [ www.imsidesign.com/Products/Renditioner/RenditionerExpressv2/tabid/1904/Default.aspx ]
  • Sketchup is a 32 bit application (Seriously why?) so even if you have monster memory you’ll still hit the ceiling sooner or later so be careful and not to put too much load on the scene.

Thanks to Sake-Chan (Sake Bento) for lending her beautiful voice and little_misere for the Lucy sprite…

Upgraded Lucy sprites for her upcoming game

August 9, 2010

I assume I now have your attention (LOL!)… time to go to the real content…

Oh boy… 1 base sprite 3 base sprites to go… In all the time I have spent making OELVN’s, this is the first time I actually slowed down and take time to create sprites with quality in mind and for a good reason… these are sprites for Lucy

So… who is Lucy? Well… she’s the “other” often forgotten rarely remembered ren’py girl… you can read more here… as for me, I dare say she’s one of the main reasons why I managed to stay in this hobby even after I went from happy go lucky no care person to busy all day everyday person. I am after-all… her numero UNO fan!…
