Adding simple animations for Single Sprites to be used in Renpy to make your project look… alive…… The Lazy way…

July 10, 2011

Ah… it’s been awhile… I’ve been really REALLY busy lately but what the heck… on with the subject…

What you see here is a mock up but will closely resemble the final output… sort of…

So what am I up to this time again?…. Well,  I was looking for cheap, fast, efficient ways to enhance my project graphically and one of the things I’m looking at lately is adding minute animations to each sprite to give the impression of being alive… So what are my options… Read the rest of this entry ?


2 and a half hours + a bored guy with a camera + a large desk + two black cardboard + a bunch of recently aquired FIGMA’s from + 2 lead flashlights = A miniature K-On photoshoot

I hate to admit but I may have already been a FIGMA otaku long before I realized it… whatever. Anyway, I’ve always been a fan of FIGMA’s… Read the rest of this entry ?


SATURDAY!!!… YEAH!!!… I am so close in achieving that hand drawn look on BG-CG’s using only Sketchup and a little help from a few plug-ins… and YES!… NO PHOTOSHOP THIS TIME!!!… NO REALLY!!!

The GUI and the sprite is just mock up but the BG is not… this is the result I got from messing up with a couple of Renderer for sketchup. Read the rest of this entry ?


A sort of tutorial… Using Sketchup and Photoshop to create BG-CG’s for your OELVN projects… fast…

September 15, 2010

Disclaimer: The Sketchup components you see here does not belong to me. I did not create them nor am I claiming them. We are only using them for educational purposes and to demonstrate the awesome convenience and potential of sketchup and 3D warehouse has to offer in production of BG-CG’s for OELVN’s (and I kinda feel lazy today)… insert more legal crap here…

OK so where were we?…

Every time I see you posting about your Sketchup work, I start praying for a tutorial D:

Deji Says:
I second what Cielo says *nods*

OK, I give a tutorial… err… OK maybe not quite a tutorial but close. Rather, I’ll show how I do things and hopefully I could share a few of my secret techniques so others can benefit. My method is obviously not the best out there nor was it morally correct (were practically cheating here). I put emphasis more on speed than quality… better have 10 BG-CG’s in two weeks and get the job done rather than wait for 1 beautiful handdrawn BG-CG and suffer from burnout. I use google sketchup to create scenes… fast… Google sketchup is very easy to learn, more easier than photoshop and with Google’s 3D warehouse, you now have a whole library of objects, buildings and anything in between accessible anytime (though if you’re gonna use this to create BG-CG’s for your project… I really do suggest you create your objects from scratch to avoid being frown upon by elitists and other artists). Let’s go to actual content now… Read the rest of this entry ?
