which art style for a yuri dating sim ?

Post by jack1974 » Fri Sep 05, 2014 6:19 pm

As some of you know I'm making my first yuri only game (a yaoi only as well). While for the yaoi I know more or less who to use as artist, I'm not sure about the yuri one.
I am tempted to use Planet Stronghold Colonial Defense one, though his art is definitely NOT manga... not sure if is a bad thing or not. I am used to have manga art in dating sims, and in general they tend more towards the "cute" side, while a realistic art like that one... well :mrgreen: would seem more serious and probably more sexy.

In summary I don't know what to do :) hence the poll! thanks

Here's an example as reference:

While I'm trying to decide what to vote here... care to share about the yaoi art-style? :D

While Loren is my favourite game of yours(for the characters and gameplay mostly), I prefer the art of Nicole or PS:colonial defence.

Loren is also my favorite game (with planet stronghold in a close second place) but i'm choosing a nice classic style for this one. Whatever the outcome, i know is going to be great like always!

Looks like the styles are winning in the order I prefer them, so that's cool. ^^

Manga style doesn't necessarily preclude it from being sexy. ;P

I'm not really surprise by the result, pure VN and dating sims are almost always done in manga style.
If you know wich artist you will use for your yaoi game, what kind of art will it have?

Classic manga, but a bit more realistic. Similar to PS1 artist but better coloring I think :)

I really like the more realistic style in Planet Stronghold. That being said, I do realise that it doesn't suit the genre as well as the manga art.

I like the art of Nicole myself, as for magna I love it well it does depends on the artist's style, and the more real art style it pretty good, but does not grab my attention like the previous two.
