    So! Uhhh, well, you read the title ^^;;;

    Basically, I saw this post on tumblr that went 'have loads of OCs? No idea what to do with them? Make a dating sim!' and I instantly went like '*_* HOLY CRAP THAT'S A GREAT IDEA SOFTWARE GET!' and downloaded Novelty, which is supposed to be a really easy like click and drop program - and it looks it!

    Except - it has like three sprites, none of which look anything like any of my characters. And I've googled for more sprites and it all seems very overwhelming and I have no idea how to look for what I have in mind.

    I think my ideal approach would probably to find some kind of dollmaker thing that would work with my VN software, but I have NO idea if such a thing even exists and if I could make sprites myself?? My digital artwork sucks, I'd never be able to do it all myself, and I definitely don't have the kind of disposable income that would be required to commission someone to work with in that....

    Any kind of advice would be appreciated! I have no idea what I'm doing but I really really wanna do this and make an all-inclusive LGBT urban fantasy game! Thankyou for reading!

    (Also please excuse the overly-excitable tone, it's the first day of shark week for me and I'm literally on three different kinds of pain medication ^^;;;)

    i would definitely be interested in volunteering some spritework, depending on what u had in mind!! money's not an issue, ive been looking for a creative project recently and spritework/visual novel statics seems like a good way to do that

    Omg @rats that would be amazing if you would! Do you have any links to artwork stuff, so I can see what your style is like and go from there? Also can I PM you?

    I'm excited!!
