Hi Folks,

If you can, please consider making a small donation on my site to support my work. The camera I use to create free images for everyone is very expensive…I've been paying it off for some time…and donations from the creative community really help me a lot.

That said, brand new free texture images are available on these pages:

TXR - FABRIC

TXR - FUR

Enjoy and stay safe. :-)

After a hectic 5 weeks, my schedule’s finally opened up a bit. If anyone needs custom music created, this would be a good time to do it. Just send me an email.

In the meantime, I managed to get a couple of cool new tracks done for everyone over the weekend…free to use, as always, with attribution. They are:

On my new Action 4 page:

SPIES – (Looping)

On my Fantasy 10 page:

A MEADOW OF MYSTERIES

Don’t forget my premium Ogg tracks…they’re another cool way to support my work.

Enjoy…and please stay safe.

That said, this week’s new free music tracks are:

On my Epic / Battle page:

PIRATES! – (Looping)

On my Puzzle Music 5 page:

MAGICAL MINNIE PUZZLES – (Looping)

And on my Sci-Fi 9 page:

Hi Folks,

This week’s new free music tracks are:

On my Fantasy 10 page:
A TRAIL OF JEWELS – (Looping)
QUIRKY GAME WORLD – (Looping)

On my Funny 7 page:
THE FISHBOWL ACROBATS RETURN – (Looping)
WINDLE’S WHIMSICAL STREET – (Looping)

If you’re wondering what the big fuss about Ogg tracks is, they have several advantages:

-They are small in size.
-Game engines seem to handle them better for looping…MP3 files occasionally need editing.
-They sound fantastic…almost as good as my original WAVs.
-They’re a cool way to support my work!

Another Special Request to Everyone:

If you possibly can, please consider making a small donation on my website to support my work. The synthesizers I use to create free music for everyone are very expensive (2 Korgs and a Yamaha.) I actually have to make monthly payments on them and donations from the creative community really help me a LOT to pay for them. Thanks in advance. :-)

That said, I managed to get a couple of new tracks done for everyone. Free to use, as always, with attribution:

On My Epic / Battle page:
“COMRADES ALWAYS” (Looping)

On my Fantasy 10 page:
“OF KNIGHTS AND KINGS” (Looping)

Good News:

Super high-quality Ogg versions of all of my Puzzle Music Tracks are ready. That’s around 100 tracks to choose from…all created from my original WAV recordings (but much smaller in file size.) They’re really cool, too, because they can be used for all kinds of things in addition to puzzle games. You’ll find them on my Puzzle Music 1-5 pages.

More Good News:

All of the tracks on my Fantasy 9 page now have Ogg versions as well. They sound great!

And even MORE good news:

If you create arcade-style games (or know someone who does) Ogg versions of all the tracks on my Chiptunes 1 page are now ready, too.

That said, this week’s new free MP3 tracks are:

On my Epic / Battle page:
PREPARING FOR BATTLE – (Looping)

On my Fantasy 10 page:
THE KEY TO THE KINGDOM – (Looping)

And on my Looping Music page:

I am a writer, designer and all-around creator, and centrally have been working on a Visual Novel project, for a good while now (a year and a half).

Briefly, it is a sci-fi, fully-realized literary novel of fiction, in a space setting, with a few central characters aboard a spacecraft. It’s a work that people expecting something at a higher reading level and maturity can enjoy, though it retains fun, cartoonish design elements, and even a romantic, relationship aspect.

The tone and pace is, more than anything, conversational; full of character and dialogue; and smart, down to earth, often humorous conversations about life, love, society, cultures, philosophy, technology, and of course, space.

Currently in the process of final re-editing, and transposing the writing to code… forming code action and visual placeholders as I go… the search continues, for a (or a couple of) visual artist(s) so interested in gearing up, and jumping into space alongside me.

This virtual book / novel videogame is, in contrast to a bulk of the related market: not short or half-written… not made for the sole purpose of being nsfw or lewd content… not relegated to the sub-genre typicality of being anime, or anime-like — almost expected of games of its kind.

In actuality, it represents a very small minority of quality-level, thoughtful, literary and uniquely-styled visual novels that has potential to find its way to the surface, and stand among a special few within this still-burgeoning genre.

An omni-tasking creator, I’ve not only written the book and am performing the coding, but I’ve designed and sketched most everything required for the game’s assets… or will as we go forth. This includes character concepts and backgrounds.

What I would love to have for this project is a fantastic artist, such as yourself, whom, I have noticed, has impeccable talent. If you are interested, I know you could do wonders adding to and making this project come to life.

Without getting too salesman-y (though I come to understand some people are better swayed by the kind of professionalism), here are the reasons you would do well to come aboard and have a blast working with me on this project:

1. To all those who are or would be on the fence, I urge you to give me benefit of the doubt. I have actually, lovingly created a great novel / visual novel of literature, and it’s… frankly, quite good.

In other words… in opposition to what the words “visual novel” might evoke in some people’s minds — due to experience — this is an actual work of literature-level, though accessible entertainment, which has the potential to become something that could “pop out”, or stand out as one of those few memorable visual novel titles.

Existing solely for the story, the illustration, the musical atmosphere. This here is an unfulfilled niche zone, which I, with your help, will fulfill.

2. The work itself is likely going to be far less intensive than you might already presume, because, much of the creative, idea-generating portion is, or will already be done by me (that said, I am completely open to a person who craves more creative input, and I would gladly welcome improvements).

So basically, there are decent character sketches and mock-ups, already; I’m expecting someone to do their best (better) rendition of these, and professialism-ize them with big screen-ready lines, coloring, and expression/pose changes.

And also, decent-enough backgrounds (I’m cool with impressionistic, even quaint, minimalist cartoon styles here especially).

Making it clearer: even backgrounds, I have basic storyboard directives thought out. And color schemes, I’ll have gone through and picked them for each character, their font hues, etc.

3. Monetary (the part where, just maybe, you and I make this get us paid):

I am someone who just excitedly, passionately wants to work hard and get this project done, but good (but asap). That said, and bearing you are a person also wishing to be a part of something worthy… for the experience and joy, the name-making and accomplishment and possibly, breaking-through… there’s a lot of wiggle room in my ideas, regarding this.

The first one I would prefer, is to go the “revenue-share” method, as partners; I would definitely negotiate a fair percentage deal with you, for your artistry efforts.

And, I would be willing to potentially commit to some other offer as well, if it is doable. In other words, I’d love to talk with an interested artist regardless. We could potentially come to some agreement regarding pay, for the right match.

4. Finally, and simply to bring all the above together:

You —

like the idea of being part of a passion, worthy, game-changing project;

are ready to crank out some awesome drawings without a huge amount of extraneous effort, because you are well in shape for such a workout;

are flexible enough in terms of getting payment, and see the overall benefit in being part of a (who knows…?) launch pad game / book / media entertainment, which could start or enhance greatly each our careers — and add to the pantheon itself as it stands.

I sincerely hope to hear from your excited voice; super skilled rendering fingers in no time.

Take care … for now… … … … … . .

Steven

More media creators have been asking about my higher quality Ogg music tracks. Please know that I’m in the process of creating them and uploading them to Gumroad, but it’s taking time since there are over 2000 tracks on my site. If you want an Ogg version of a track that isn’t available yet, just email me and I’ll be happy to create it for you and put it on Gumroad.

Be well.
