    Virtual Pets

    Welcome to the Virtual Pet list forum!
    We're a virtual pets and sim games community and the largest forum in our industry. Game owners can use our forum to their advatange by promoting/advertising their games to our users and receive feedback/reviews from those members that try their games out. We support developers of all kinds from RPG developers, sim game developers to virtual pet site developers. We want to see more games in our industry come across more success and that's why we try our best to release as many guides/articles regarding online gaming development as we can.
    We're unlike other forums in our industry because we try our best to be there for our users no matter what and give them advice whenever they ask for it. Running an online game isn't an easy task, but with our many resources that we've built since 2011, you'll learn a lot from our online community. Please don't ever be afraid to ask a question on the forums because if you never ask, then you'll never receive an answer to your question and you can only improve by asking other users for help/advice.
    We have a lot of virtual pet sites' owners and sim game owners that are very frequent visitors on our online community. Along with artists, writers and programmers that come here looking for work and games to work for. Our members who are artists sell art in our art marketplace and programmers are allowed to sell their scripts in the programming marketplace. We also allow game owners to sell their game in our general marketplace
    In early 2011, we decided to make a comeback to the internet because in 2010, we had a minor setback and we had to re-launch without any content, but with a lot of time, patience, hardwork and effort, we've managed to rebuild the Virtual pet list community into something better than it was before. We actually registered our domain name on November 4th, 2004, but we were only a directory then and all we had was a basic comments system for users to post things on their favorite games..
    So, what are you waiting for, why don't you join today? If you have any problems figuring out our security code, then here's a hint, it has millions upon users and has been around since 1997.
    Our list of virtual pet sites and directory of sim games have a lot of different games listed, so we're pretty sure that you may find some games that suits your needs as a player of sim games or virtual pet sites.
    If you're still curious about a certain game that you'd like to play, then please check out some of our game reviews that were written by some of our great contributors and our interviews with respective virtual pet site owners, sim game owners, artists, writers and programmers that have worked in this industry.

    (Livestream Online) S.R. :// Doodles, paintings, and livestream

    [​IMG]

    Uhm, hi! If nobody minds, I wanted to make a sort of art dump on VPL to toss stuff up at after seeing Drea's. Many thanks for letting me follow suit!

    I think most of these will probably be doodles and speed paintings because I rarely have time for finished stuff at the moment, but we'll see :)

    [​IMG]

    Saellis Reborn is the name of a story I've been slowly but surely tweaking for around 8 years now. My intent is to make a comic, but who knows if I'll ever actually make it that far.
    In the mean time, I work a lot on the character designs, environments, and other things for said story, so anything labeled with S.R. is referencing such.

    S.R. takes place in a complete fantasy world. It has its own universe, deities, cultures, and histories. While it is not the main focus, there are some non-straight-cis characters. There may also be triggers within the story, but nothing of that sort should be posted here.

    [​IMG]

    4/16 - Some Fate/zero scribbles, and a few speedpaintings.

    These are the roughs for my storyboarding final. There's quite a few changes to be made, but I figured I'd share :)
    I'll probably have to delete it off Youtube the near future because of the music.

    Awesome, I'm glad you both are interested :D I will add you to the list, Toxic.


    (S.R.) Here's what one of the banner images is from, some character design sketches...
    [​IMG]

    This is Icilia, who's main hobby is looking displeased as you can see here.
    Icilia's mother was Zeynian - a sort of sub race of humans resulted of breaking off from the main continent and secluding themselves in the mountains for many thousands of years. Her father was from the desert region across the continent; a place filled with corruption and exploitation of the people forced to live there without the means of making it across the desert to better living conditions. It is a rare mix indeed, and one that has granted Icilia many hardships as she attempts to make it through in the Capitol.

    Icilia chose to go about this by proving herself a more than capable fighter of the imperial army. Perhaps to ease her burdens slightly, she takes on an androgynous look (made easy by the very sharp and angular body shape of a Zeynian) and keeps to herself for the most part.

    Been going through a bit of an art block lately, so I'm trying to force through it with some figure studies (even though it's 3 am and I have class today >_> )

    [edit] Here's another photo based study. I don't know if it's okay for me to post bare female chests, but I'll take it down right away if I'm asked.

    @Toxic Rainbow Kisses Yeah they are :) Unfortunately I was never really in a situation where I could afford to learn how to paint traditionally because of the cost of supplies and the like, so I do all my painting digitally. I actually do about 90% of my work digitally otherwise simply out of convenience, but I enjoy some traditional media like charcoal and coloured pencil from time to time, and do a lot of work in sketch books that I'm too lazy to scan XD

    (S.R.) Just posting what one of the banners is from again:
    [​IMG]

    This one is Rasconza (most certainly named after a character in Redwall way back from Jr. High). She was one of the first characters I ever made, but practically everything about her has changed. (She also used to be a Draik because Neopets because whatever.)

    So, in S.R. there is a 'Gate of Death' which was traditionally guarded by a single person for some hundreds of years, who would pass on the job to somebody else when they found their ability to empathize with mortals fading. It just so happens the one at the time S.R. takes place, Spectyre, reached this point rather quickly, and decided not to pass the job on.

    Spectyre enlists the help of various people over time who help 'make things easier', and while these people are referred to as Angels, their jobs can include rather cruel and inhumane tasks depending on their specialties in magic and personality.

    Rasconza is one of these, but she doesn't really have to deal with any of the messy business. Her job is simply to record the events that happen in the lands of mortal men (although she tends to spend most of her time researching and doing experiments instead). Rasconza's not supposed to intervene with the major events that occur, but ends up doing so in a very significant way.

    That is great to hear, since I'll probably end up posting a lot XD

    My friend and I were doing 'kitags', where each person sets a goal of work for 45 minutes, and if you don't finish in time, you have to draw something for the other person in 20 minutes. So here's one of the sketches from when I lost:

    Haven't been doing much besides working on finals, but here's an update on the storyboarding assignment.

    [video=youtube_share;fdj-8Yl5QNg]http://youtu.be/fdj-8Yl5QNg[/video]

    Current to-do list is basically just clean up, particularly the very beginning and the stormy night scene.

    Also, I just realized I haven't been sharing much about mah menz, so here's a bit old (but fairly updated) temporary ref for Rain, also showing what one of the banner images is from.

    [​IMG]

    Rain Starr is his stage name, because he's cheesy like that. The main idea behind Rain's personality is that he is supposed to be likable in early interactions - he is polite, eager to please, and so on - however, getting to know him better reveals that he's very unreliable, detached, and fairly selfish in the long run. Like Razzy, he started off as a Neopet |:

    (S.R.) I certainly haven't been drawing much lately. Been in a bit of a general slump X_X

    [​IMG]

    So I tried to scribble something up to get back into the flow of things. This kid here is Roy Mordicius, and he plays a very important role in S.R. much to his own dismay. He tries very hard to avoid the responsibilities other people want to press on him, but eventually they're going to catch up :p

    (I don't know what he is wearing ._. )

    [​IMG]

    Now I'm just experimenting with a style. This guy is Kathius, but I'll explain more about him when the image is finished.

    The Volibear is adorable, I love the colors that you used! Your story board was also really interesting, some of the frames were beautifully drawn, especially where she's being swept away by the current and then falls down and starts drowning.. not that I enjoy seeing characters in pain, I just thought it was well drawn. XD How long have you spent on it so far?

    Thanks! I've made a lot of LoL chibies in the past, but that one is my favorite by far :D

    I actually finished that assignment (my finals were due two weeks ago), I just forgot to update it with the final version. It's not too much different really, just some cleaned up bits and a tweak to the water scene to fit the music.
