Right now I'm editing the English translation so that little errors are fixed. (Tense and grammar, and then some story/name issues that I found. Gee, I'm so picky!) Then I'm turning it into a game script. (Kinda like an interactive novel? Just without much interaction.) After I add music and sound effects, I'm going to need to add character art so we can see who's talking. Right now I'm desperately looking for .hack fans--especially artists, who might want to work on this project.
Might you be interested? Also, as of next month, I should be able to give the artist who works with me a small amount of money for their help.
Anyway, thanks for responding! Can't wait to hear back.
Is there any estimated picture on how many you need?
and any guarantee that this project won't be discarded mid-way by you? since i have participated in this kind of project before... only to be cancelled by the leader OTL wasting my art /shot
lastly program you intend to use and your programming level?
sorry for many question OTL, i've many bad experience in this kinda of project anyway I'm SUPER interested... (since i'm a big .hack fans) though i kinda worried about the copyright issue... but let's ignore that now
Hm, let's see...for an estimate of pictures needed... There are 5 characters, and I'll probably want a couple poses for each. Then we can just put different expressions on the image. Also, there are a few backgrounds that will need to be done, but if you can't do them, I can figure out something else. Though I have faith in your ability to draw something like Mac Anu. (I think there are only a few areas, right? And I won't more than one or two shots of each.) And then I'd like the chapter images and the pictures from the book, which I'm calling "event images." So, all in all about 15-25 pictures, I estimate. Though most will be edits of one picture. The program will be run in a 800x600 window. I am using Ren'Py and I'm fairly experienced with programming it. I'm going to officially announce the project soon, so people will expect it to get done. I want to hold myself to their expectations. Also, I already have the script about halfway done.
Questions are good, don't apologize! I hope if you join the project that it will be a good experience. Anyway, I'll be able to send you money next month, if you'd like that exchange for the project. We can discuss price later. Since we won't be selling the finished project, I'm sure it'll be fine if I put a disclaimer. Anyway, feel free to reply to me at email@example.com It might take me a while to respond, since I'm visiting family and they only have dialup.
Count me in <3 as for money, of course it'll be helpful if i get paid, but seeing i'm interested in the project too i'll leave how much you paid me up to you ~ oh and i prefer DeviantArt (maybe note?) rather than e-mail... because i RARELY check my e-mail OTL ...
Great story TAT Poor Lycoris. You know I read the .hack//Legend of the Twilight before AI buster, so when Lycoris showed up for a brief moment I didn't recognize her, now I can appreciate her presence in the manga more. Hearing Albireo was playable in .hack//LINK feels like such a dream come true.
LOOOLLLLLL, but but but i mean Albireo decided NOT TO delete Lycoris after hearing what she say, and Lycoris pierce through the spear herself and Albireo regret it and quitting the CC Corp and so does kamui, she realize that AI is not just a trash data, and decided to protect the world from inside //while albireo from outside// ... or so they say ;;; they are LOVE
Yes i already done that which is the best dothack novels soo far i think just because of how much love i have for the "Kite Saga" i must have at least 400 hours into that game lol plus all the art and fics and then reading the novels and im really looking forward to the XXXX manga even though im not a manga guy
Well i will say that the Anime for Dusk aka Legend of the Twilight wasnt that great but it wasnt based on the manga and from what i read seems to be better than the anime of which is the only manga i own because it something i won on the .hack site Bandai setup for the GU series of which i got a few other prizes out of
Well i like that the Kite Series has 3 different versions but i think its going to be hard to beat Another Birth as its the one i enjoyed the most out of any .hack media/series/novel...etc
LOL i like link as a game XD but hate it as a .hack , if you know what i mean XD and i read the volume 2 too XD but i skipped the hokuto's point of view story;;; LOL AND YES, WATARAI/ALBIREO NEED MORE FANARTTTTTT <33333 //sketchsketcksketcsketchsketchsketch//
I do know what you mean, actually. And yeah...it's there for the fans. I mean, who doesn't want to see EVERYONE together? I just hate Tokio. Ugh. That, and the design changes, and attempt at a plot to explain how they're all in one story...THOSE are the reasons I hate it.
I would die happily to see some Watarai/Albiero + Shibayama/Kamui art. It wouldn't have to be romance. Just...their bond was so sweet and sad. It would be beautiful.
I haven't read the book so I can't say I recognize the character or any of the possible symbolism in this picture but I can say that I love the character's expression. He looks more than just sad (to me, at least) like he's shocked by whatever loss he's experiencing and the sadness hasn't fully set in yet. The positions of the shadows against the background do so much for the mood of the picture: they give me the feeling that the character doesn't know where the ground is (like he's so lost/confused/what-have-you he can't find any ground to stand on anymore). I don't know if any of that made any sense but simply put I love this picture. It's very beautiful. Wonderful job!
