What is Expression Sheet in a JRPG Game?

Hello Guys, well, last thing i was doing about my project was drawing the “Third” Main Character, you will understand better when the project get more advanced and I post more about my game. 🙂 And i just have one thing to say “Drawing hands is a #$%# #$%#$%#$”. And if you desire to see more tutorials by me here, I will TRY post a tutorial every Sunday and Wednesday. Design Tutorial I don’t pretend to do because I’m not good enough for this, BUT I will try to suggest some inspirations and good links if you want to “learn” or to “get inspired” for drawing or paint or designing your project.

Before I start to “talk” about Sprites…

Today I will “talk” about something important if you desire to do a game with dialogs, more commonly in a JRPG or Japanese Games in General. Even if you are doing a game with RPGMaker or something like that you will probabily need if you looks for originality is a “Expression Sheet” or also known as “Character Settei (キャラクター設定)”.

Well What is that?

Drawing Mountains

Hellow, yesterday and today I was hand-drawing a “background” for the game. I had a “World”, a story and I was looking for a background image, now I have one, but it’s need a lot of  computer work yet with the painting part, but is ok, I will do it later, you can see the image bellow. 🙂


How I did it? It is not hard at all, but requires a lot of patience, different pencils and a nice blender. 😉

And of course I’m not a pro in hand drawing, so I got a great help from a channel from the youtube that I’m following for a little long time, the TylersArtShack Channel. Well I had the “towers”, a “town” in my mind, but I needed ideas for mountains, cliff and forest. And the tutorial “How to Draw the Mountains in  a Myst” comes in handy and helped me a lot. Thx for “Fireproof Babies” the artist from this tutorial. TylersArtShack Channel have a lot of nice drawing tutorials and of course I recommend it if u wanna start drawin. 🙂

Now my next steps shall be Drawing more characters for the game and tomorrow probabily start with the Sprites Part. 🙂

First Day: What the Game is About?

Hellow 🙂

The First Day I will be sketching the game and make some brain storming with myself 😦 BUT I will already say what the game will be about. 🙂

So, now I decided, the game will be a “battle, action, rpg” game. In other words, have you already played “Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara” from arcades? “Golden Axe”? Well, it shall be something like this but with a design art medieval and more japanese manga themed.

Dungeons & Dragons: Shadow Over Mystara

The last game that I played with this “theme” was Castle Crashers in the Steam. Is not the best game of the world, but it is very fun anyway and I will be working on something like this from now on for iOS (and later in Android). 🙂

The game won’t be “pixel art”, the sprites shall have high resolution, I think this way will be a little easier and I will be working on a Really Nice System over the game. Anyway I hope everyone likes in the end :).
