Chit-Chat / Please correct these few lines!
« on: April 06, 2013, 02:50:41 pm »
Hi everyone!
I'm currently making a game called Miss Anonymous, which is a platformer, where you play a girl, who fights against time to die (you lose the game, if you don't win it in 15 minutes).

Anyway, in each level, there's going to be a short line of text, to explain the story. This is what I've written:

I'm afraid.
Afraid of... the timer.
I got 15 minutes.
And nothing more.
That's 900 seconds.
If I complete it...
I'll win.
Win everything.
If I win, I'll die.
And if I lose, I'll live.
But death is the beginning of the end.
In death, people will know me.
Maybe, I will even become happy.
But only if I die.
In life, I was unhappy.
Nobody knew me.
I was just that lonely girl, who had no friends.
I was Miss Anonymous.

But since English is a foreign language to me, would someone please correct it?

Chit-Chat / Do I still got it?

Hi everyone,
I haven't worked on my art lately, but I just saw the Stencyl Jam, and I'm in!

But I have no idea if my art is as good as it was, so here's the main character for the game (remember to zoom in!):

As comaparision, this is something I created some time ago (probably the best thing I've ever made, got 2 favourites):

Are my art still good? I have no idea.

Chit-Chat / What 3D art program?
« on: February 02, 2013, 11:53:35 pm »
Hi everyone!
I think I'm going to learn to model in 3D, since that would open up more doors in my art.

But what free program is good for making 3D art? I've heard about Blender, but I wanted to hear about there is better programs out there.

Could you also post some "get started with 3D buildings/enviroment/characters"?

Game Art / (Please Help!) Game, Novel or Movie?
« on: February 02, 2013, 01:08:07 pm »
Hi everybody!
I got a great idea for a story! It's about a young woman, she's sick of her work, her family, generally everything. She drinks and smokes. The player/reader/viewer follows her, as she gets more and more insane and depressed, while she starts to mix up reality and fantasy.

But I have one very, very important thing to decide on before I can make the story. Should I make it in which of following ways:
Game (a lot dialog-based)
Movie (would be made with vector art)

Please help me decide, since I can't write the story, before I've decided how to write it.

Chit-Chat / Re: Islam

Holy crap, not another evidence-denying religious fanatic. Not only does religion spend unnessesary ressources, we do also have to hear idiots talk about it.

By the way, the word "god" is a noun, it is NOT spelled with a large letter.

Chit-Chat / (Community Project Idea) Switching Lessons!
« on: February 02, 2013, 12:44:19 am »
Hi everyone!
I thought of an idea. Why don't we make a group on Skype (or somewhere else where we can talk and show pictures of our screen), and then we at Stencyl (who are some experienced artists, programmers, musicians, level designers and game designers) switch to make a lesson in whatever we want to (about game making). If you don't have any skills yet, you can just watch the lessons without having to offer anything.

Does it sound like a good idea? I could give the first lesson in pixel gradients or something like that.

Game Art / Re: Artist for Hire
« on: January 31, 2013, 10:18:33 pm »
I do really like the 4th one!

I've been very interested in making something like the 4th, but I've always failed. What brushes did you use? And how did you make the texture of the shirt, and how did you make the hair?

If you have a DeviantArt profile, please post it, so that I can favorite the picture!

Paid Work / Artist for 'hire'
« on: January 13, 2013, 10:04:34 pm »
Hi all!
My name's Benjamin, and I'm an artist, mostly pixel (but I can do a bit of vector and handdrawings). I've had kind of an artist's block the last couple of months (=doesn't know what to make), so I could never decide what to do.

So I'm looking for someone to collab with (who already knows what they want to make) (shared revenue) or someone that only needs a couple of pieces done (I'll gladly make a couple of pieces for free).

Since I just got a new laptop and the most of my artwork is on the old, and I haven't moved the files to my new computer yet, I don't have much to show.

My portfolio (which neither has my old art) can be found here:

And here's a bit (they can be found on the portfolio as well):

Hi everybody,
I've just made a portfolio. Check it out at

What do you whink of my art style?

What do you think about the site (layout etc.)? I haven't uploaded all of my art yet, because I got a new computer recently, and a lot of my art is on the old one.

Game Art / Tomato-Zombie-Living-Thingy
« on: December 29, 2012, 04:08:50 am »
Hi everybody!
I'm working on a Tower Defense game with living vegetables (!). I'm looking for some advice on my first enemy, a tomato, since I've never made top-Down looking sprites before.

Here's the file:

Nice, I'm going to make my Next game with this!

Paid Work / Re: Programmer Looking for iOS/Android Collaboration
« on: December 19, 2012, 07:57:01 am »
I'm a pixel/vector artist, that would like to collaborate with you. I don't know much about making music/sounds (but I play guitar). Do you have the plans over the games we're going to make, or should we decide it together?

PS: I have an Android cellphone.


Ask a Question / Never-Ending Level
« on: December 09, 2012, 12:22:38 am »
Hi everyone!
For a long time, I've been trying to find out how to make never-ending levels in Stencyl.

How do I make never-ending levels?

Chit-Chat / Re: Debate: Is it possible?
« on: December 08, 2012, 12:43:10 am »
I don't want to actually try to make the game, I just wanted to start a debate, to see if a huge game company could make it, and how long time they would have to spend.

Chit-Chat / Debate: Is it possible?
« on: December 07, 2012, 12:44:06 pm »
Hi guys,
I've been thinking a bit about an idea for a cooking game/tool. It's like normal cooking games, except for that the cooking is 100% realistic. Fx tomatoes, you can cut them any way you want, prepare any dish with them that you want to in a realistic way, even without the programmer have made the dish in the game!

Do you think it's possible to make a game with 100% realistic cooking? Both considering today's engines and the future generations of games.
