Repost from "How" - Character Generator

Discussion of tools and resources for game developers

Post » Thu Mar 24, 2016 2:32 pm

Is there any sort of free to use Character Generator? 2D sprites used in Visual novels? Where you can generate a base character and then change the facial expression? Like in Winter Wolves' "Roommates" or the images that come with Renpy. One sprite, one outfit, but the only difference is the facial expression.

Is there a software that generates them from different elements? Any style. Anime or not anime, doesn't matter. Can be any art style (As long as they look realistic like "Roommates" or the images that are included with Renpy.

Free, Must be in English, and can generate male and female. Where the art style is either "anime" adult realistic, or like "Roommates" and the Renpy default included images.

Generate a character. That is the default stating point, character has facial expression. Taking the same character, give the character different facial expressions. Saving a copy of one each time. So you have the same exact default character, but multiple copies, each one with a different facial expression. The Internet is a vast place. I'm confident that out of the billions of websites, at least one has a software program that does that:

>>> An alternative, if a program like that does not exist. This is a seperate program. You know there are sprite sheets? Where you have a bunch of sprites, change their look, and they're shown in different poses? Starting with a base sprite, it shows the base sprite in different poses? and you can customize it? Is there a program like that?

So 2 programs: One that makes Visual Novel characters.

One that makes sprites like those game RPG sprites, customizable and generates the sprite in different poses.

im afraid there is no already built software that does it... you have to create the characters and then u can export into spritesheet with any kind of tool this days... but you have to draw the characters or model them in 3d depends on what you want to do and how realistic you want your character to be.


look at photoshop/blender {animation tutorials}/ cinema4d animation tutorials etc

hu just gimme a sec...

yeah, you got the venerable charas-project, let's you create lo-bit rpg characters and facesets online. Results may get a bit trashy tho.

I already recommended dazStudio to somebody here the other day. Not a generator, it's a 3d program where you basically assemble prefabricated elements (like a human body + clothes + hair). Its free, and you've got literally thousands of free assets in sharecg.com or renderosity (liceses may apply). Some guys do amazing (if somewhat uncannily familiar) art with it.
