AGS Games in Production / Re: Whispers of a Machine

I'm still looking forward to this, Andail. I love the atmosphere, which isn't a surprise to me since all of your games have a great atmosphere. Great job and keep it up :)

I want to see more screens!

Hi! This looks really good and I am waiting for it's completion :) Good job, keep it up!

Guys, I want to thank you so much for your input and suggestions. I love the looks of both Toon Boom and AnimeStudio. I'm definitely going to look in to those programs.

With a cherry on top of COURSE!

Hi guys, long time no see. I've been away for a long time due to moving to another state. But here I am now with the internets weehee!

So as the subject line says, I need some helpful advice to point me in the right direction. I want to do something with my art, whether it be freelance and/or start something completely for myself, like say a comic strip/cartoon show.

Not only have I wanted to do something with illustrating/cartooning my entire life and it's finally time to actually DO something about it, I also NEED to do something about it now - the sooner the better, I just don't know where to start. Money has always been a huge issue, but now it's even worse, but anyway, I won't bore you with backstory.

What I have for ideas so far include creating an ETSY page and selling artwork on there. ETSY seems pretty limitless when it comes to the possibilities of what you can sell, and there's a ton of other people also selling artsy-fartsy stuff and illustrations so that's a great sign. I have also found a site (well actually my wife found it) where I can have an online portfolio. Seems like a pretty good idea for freelancing some artwork.

Now what I REALLY REALLY want to do is create a cartoon show. I already have a bunch of characters (characters I've had for YEARS and an addition of a few new characters), the storyline, tons of ideas/jokes, I can do all the voices myself, I can animate it myself and I can also do the music myself. Of course that's a lot for one guy to do himself, but that's all I am right now. Originally I was planning on doing this all in AGS, only because I know how to use it. It would be simple to do. But now I am wondering.

I have looked for animation programs, I've looked in to Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop and neither I know how to use. What would be the best program to animate a cartoon? Is there anything you use yourself? I'm looking to do more along the lines of traditional animation, but I'm not 100% opposed to vector... even though in most cases I can't stand it.

Another possibility for work has always been illustrating for children's books, or books in general that call for a cartoony-style. I don't do any serious type work, like say what MARVEL characters look like. But again, I don't know where to start looking for this type of thing.

I can also do backgrounds for cartoony adventure games too, but I guess that would be another post in the help wanted thread.

Sorry for the long post! Any help with giving me some ideas and fingers pointed in the right direction would be most appreciated! I just don't know where to start looking.

Thank you!

Wow there's a third one?? Jesus, I've been gone WAY too long... I haven't even completed the first one :embarrassed:

Thank you everyone for all the kind words! We worked very hard on this song and I can say for all of us, we are very proud of it's result :D

Just as you think AGS games are running out of ideas... then something like THIS happens. I love it. Keep up the good work!

You took the words right out of my mouth. It must of been while you were kissing me. Oh wait...

Anyway, yeah, I was thinking the same thing pretty much. This is a nice fresh idea for a game. I will download the demo now. I also love the color palette!

Hello! I'm very sorry, I DO know that there hasn't been any posts in this thread for a very long time :-[

This is a very cool module. I have a blocking animation that stops the water from moving when it is called. Is there a way for this module to ignore blocking commands?

Why is 6 scared of 7?

Spoiler: ShowHide

Because 7-8-9

He is also a registered six offender.
HILARIOUS  (laugh)

I just want to chime in and say how that every time I see the subject line of this thread I always think that, "AGS World Cup", is some new AGS sports game (like that football game someone was working on years ago) that we all play together through the online plug-in or something. Every time the answer is still the same. Nope :-[

I don't know if I clicked something by accident, but all of a sudden everything here on the forums is centered. It doesn't matter what forum I'm on, but everything here on AGS is center lined.

Is this happening to anyone else? Is it something I've done? :embarrassed:

My old "Junior High" (7th and 8th grade) had those "trough toilets"... I always opted for the stall. There were two of them if I remember right. I'd be damned if I was going to pee next to someone else with no divider @_@

So this was just a side project to keep all of us happy while you work on a new Tulles World, yes?

Wow, that's horrible, Darth :sad: Sorry to hear.

I had it in my hand after cutting it up and on my way over to the fish tank to put it on the intake when I had the thought - it was after smelling it actually, and I thought right then that it may release toxins in the water. I did a bit of googling around first to no avail, and so, as most of my quandaries, ended up here ;) I always know that if I can't find the answer to something or find someone somewhere that has had a similar experience with something by googling, best bet is that I will find them here!

I've been looking around a bit and come to find out, lots of people are buying them for their pets to play fetch at night, as well as toys for their toddlers. Still not too sure about having it in the fish tank, but I do feel a little better about it. I think I may just hold out to find a sponge.
