>what's this?
A thread for the organization and development of a VN with minor puzzle/adventure game elements starring Libbie the Cyber Oryx.  Previous thread: >>118872 (archive: https://archive.ph/z17yE)

>what will the game be like?
A simple, short puzzle/adventure game presented like a VN and inspired by old Flash adventure/"sim" games.  We'll be working in Ren'py, and the game will mostly be slice-of-life comedy and light romance.

>what did you accomplish in the last thread?
- Progress on script and new demo 9see below).
- New drawfag who refined his sketches into final base illustrations (pics related).
- More detail on final day and endings.
- Got a gitgud repo set up to prevent bottlenecks/make saving progress easier.
Our progress is pretty glacial, but we're still making progress.  We may also be getting a new codefag, since the current one doesn't have a lot of free time.  As always, anyone is welcome to contribute.

The most recent demo is for day 3: https://files.catbox.moe/zlm5fa.zip - there's also a Linux version: https://files.catbox.moe/c5cg72.bz2
The most recent script is for day 4: https://cryptpad.fr/pad/#/2/pad/view/CUEED+Rote5DxIqRzBOzS2tkLMAuc25aiszokevm4fg/

- Asset for a Libbie-brand CPU similar to pics 1-4.  There was an anon in the previous thread who said he was going to work on it, but never delivered: >>140087
- Illustrations for the Libbies should have expressions/poses added for different emotions.
- Illustrations for Kiki and robo-Kiki should be moved from sketches to shaded drawings.
- Day 3 demo needs bug fixes as detailed in previous thread: >>166730 and >>166731 and >>166763.
- Codefag needs to remember his gitgud password (>not using a password manager) and upload the day 3 demo.
- Writefag needs to make progress on day 5 script (won't happen until start of November due to limited free time).

If I'm forgetting anything, feel free to remind me.

One anon had also mentioned that the Windows XP branding should cover most of the CPU, which I think would be an improvement.
Replies: >>168685
To be clear, the actual label should read "SeXXXay thangZZ 4 H0M-" where the - is a character that has been scratched out or burnt off.

Replies: >>173251 >>173340
I think Ren'Py just treats images as images, so if you want to have a character's face change but her pose remain the same then you would have to manually make a new image.  But if you work digitally, then you can just make a base layer for the character's body, and then draw different faces on top and save them as their own images.

It's not necessary to have different poses for every emotion, but I do like having different poses for some emotions like anger or sheepishness.

What exactly is the problem you're encountering?

Writefag here.  Sorry to disappoint, but I haven't worked on the VN script for this month.  I've been busy with work (they want me to go into the office starting this week) and other hobbies.  I'm pushing to finish one of those hobby projects soon, within the next week or so, and after that I'll focus on Libbie.

That said, there can certainly be progress made on the puzzles.  I know we have a working tile-swap game for the first day's puzzle in the electric junction box, and there are other games with word logic or number logic that would be easy to implement.  Is the codefag around?

Do you have any plans for how the puzzles are going to go?  I think we can at least do the first tile puzzle from the electric box on day 1 without causing problems for anything else.
The puzzle would need:
- start point for "electricity"
- end point for electricity
- some way to track if a tile lets electricity flow through it depending on its orientation; four cardinal directions, each of which can either allow or block current
- some kind of time limit to prevent brute forcing; the Bioshock mini-game it's based on had the time limit represented as water moving through the path you were building, so bad choices would be locked in after the water flowed through
- 3 or 4 levels of escalating difficulty
- semi-random layouts to prevent memorization (this is optional)

I haven't looked at the code for it, so I'm not sure how much of that is in there already.

Yes.  I should be the same way.

Very nice.  Good to se progress on Art.  I like the little hand gestures you gave her in different emotions, but this one looks a little strange.  I think there is something about her ring fingers that look like they're merging together.  I highlighted what I think looks odd in black here.

can you be more creative with the 'puzzle' games, a minigame isnt a puzzle the point of a puzzle is that theres a unique solution, most puzzles are just this
char grid[3*3] =
{	0,0,0,
char key[3*3] =
{	2,0,3,
strcmp( grid, key ) ? not solved : solved 
the grid can be anything, an actual grid like most puzzles or the world state, the puzzle is !how! you change the grid and how your allowed to change it directly/indirectly/items/interactions/events/etc., it can be something like a sequence of interactions in the game world, the laqueus games is a good example since it has so many of each, its always the same though they are all just grids but you interact with them differently, the creative part is how you present it as a puzzle and lead the player to understand the key/requirements to solve it

I promise I'll start working on it this weekend and have something to show for my work.  Not much, I know, but I'll have some more time to work on the script.
I've made a bit of progress on day 5.  I'm currently trying to sort out how each ending will wrap up in a cohesive manner, and how to work in T.T.'s bro ending without making him seem like a douche who leaves instead of sticking around and helping out.

I think the main reason I've been so slow with this is a fear of success.  Notwithstanding my giant breaks due to pure laziness, this is one of the longest-running and biggest actual projects I've worked on, and I actually care about both the finished product and the characters.  I know I'm just psyching myself out and giving myself reasons not to do it, but I'm only human and that is a factor even though I should just man up and stop being a faggot

You know what, in hindsight I'm starting to understand and slightly sympathize with the Libre Office devs' position. They made their software for professional use and to not want cutesy anime furbait associated with it isn't exactly outlandish, especially when you consider the poll was likely rigged by a people who weren't ever going to use it in the first place and were just voting because "anime XD" and doing it for the lulz. Them not accepting Libbie was the equivalent of Mtn Dew not accepting "Hitler did nothing wrong" as a flavor.

On the other hand, it was rather shortsighted of them to not expect something like this would happen and they should've just handpicked the winning entry themselves instead of turning the vote into a sham.

This is bait but I'll write a serious response either way. 
Your argument falls short when you put everything into context. To say people selected Libbie not based on merit but rather because it was something to the effect of a joke is simply false. Compared to the other entries Libbie was exceptional. Libbie had not just one icon but an entire set of icons that could have been implemented anywhere in the LibreOffice UI. While art is subjective it was clear who the winner was regardless of baseless accusations of  "the evil 8chan nazis rigged it". Tyson Tan, the artist behind Libbie is well established in the open source community not only as an artist but as a Mandarin language translator. His other work includes the mascot for KDE and Krita - both of which could be considered "professional" projects.  I don't think anything about Libbie was unprofessional. No corporation has dropped Linux because it's mascot is that of a fat penguin. It's the industry standard for nearly every server and enterprise network in existence.

And if you consider what modern corporations find "professional" like the design trends of Corporate Memphis you will quickly realize that the argument of "professionalism" has no ground to stand on. Unless of course you believe that mutt-colored flat art people with crude and distorted dimensions is the image of professionalism which seems to be the industry standard these days. 

I for one would rather see a cute Oryx girl. And when China takes over the planet every desktop software will have to have a furbait anime mascot, by force

If they didn't want the mob to choose something for them, they shouldn't have had open voting.

This is, of course, ignoring the simple fact the poll was rigged by The Document Foundation (the people who manage and promote Libre Office, presumably not the people who actually develop it) in favor of shitty clip art-tier mascots.  I don't know what their end goals were but they obviously and transparently changed the rules several times in order to disqualify Libbie and pretend that she wasn't winning in a landslide.

That's just straight up bullshit. 
Libbie was a really well made entry made by a professional artist competing against literally recolored stock images. 
I think it's fair for the devs to say "we don't want this image to represent our software" and explicitly remove it, or add an extra rule that says they have last say over the pick. Except that's not what they did, because they're the epik libre software of the people hack the planet. 
They wanted that social "OUR USERS CHOSE THIS" credit, and that's why they rigged the election and refused to let users see the number of votes on a public pool for the mascot of a shitty software. All while pretending to be completely innocent. 
It's not like mountain dew not accepting Hitler did nothing wrong, it's closer to when British politicians tried to change leaving the European Union into still being part of the EU, still being subject to EU policies, still being internationally recognized as a country that can legally be punished for violating EU policies, but not having the right to vote on those policies, because that's what the people who voted for brexit actually wanted.

Not only that, but they disqualified the objectively best mascot (the cockatoo) because he was drawn sitting on the LibreOffice logo but let pajeetguin in despite him having the logo emblazoned on his chest. They had a cute, professional mascot even if they didn't want Libbie and they still fucked him over in favour of pajeetguin and the traced duolingo owl.

What I'm even more surprised about is how completely this event seems to have faded from the wider internet consciousness.  I assumed there would be a few blog posts or "internet history" videos here or there chronicling the entire thing, but there's barely anything attached to her name on YouTube or in search results.  I'm tempted to do a video/blog post myself, just to ensure the information isn't completely lost to the mists of time.

Being backed by the international jew as a way to negotiate better volume prices on MS Office tends to have that effect. Or to be marginally more charitable, most people using LibreOffice probably get it from their distro and don't give a fuck about shit like mascots as long as they have an office suite that does what they need an office suite to do.

I'm here, just being lazy.  Sorry, but it's the cold truth.  I've been struggling to manage my free time in the last couple months; I have been successfully cutting down on my time spent looking at porn and jerking off, but I'm kind of substituting that time for time spent playing video games or watching cartoons.  It's definitely better than masturbating, but it's still not productive.

Overall, my time is down, which is a good thing.  I was at 50+ wasted hours in December and January each, and February was down to 30.  March is looking to be even less.

I am very thankful for you taking up the torch and injecting some forward momentum into this thing.

Past a certain age, it's hard to learn new things or unlearn old things, but not impossible.  If you're aware of the problem then that's the first step at the very least.

Tell me about it.  I'm going into the office twice a week, which is mostly a chance for 30-year-old frumpy HR women to shove chocolate laced with seed oils at me.  Social interactions have always been taxing but the latest litanies of the imperial cult in the West have made it nigh impossible to talk to someone without treating him like a Soviet informant.

You turned her into some shitty BOOBA downgrade that looks like a white human, with human placed ears, human sized eyes and human placed nose.

No cute cheeks like pic rel, and no appeal. This is not the one I knew and loved from /tech/. Libbie was always about them HIPS and you faggots couldn't even do that right. My disappointment couldn't be any bigger with these newfags

You'l have to blow your own dick I was in the original threads on infinity. What you niggers rally around isn't Libbie, it's some 9gag version half-human with no soul. The 'button nose' looks like an actual sticker on a human it's horribly uncanny either go kemono or human not half and half.

No you. That isn't even Base Libbie, Base is the magenta one which I notice is absent in the VN. Since you're retarded and think you know what kemono is while knowing nothing about it like big eyes. I'll just show you what she looks like. I CBA to clean it up for you.
I agree that there are some design changes that could be made but let's not let this thread devolve into a flame war over this. The artfag is doing this for free on their own time in true Libre spirit so I can't be too demanding of them.

This project is still ongoing and changes can be made at anytime to improve the script, code, or art if needed. It's a fun project organized on an imageboard and not meant to be taken too seriously. With that said I agree with some of your criticisms. I like the Art Libbie and Maff Libbie design but the Base Libbie (the green one) does need some work. As >>192098 mentions I think the original dress she wore would fit a lot better. But from the artfag's perspective I can understand why they opted to draw a suit instead. It's much easier to draw as opposed to Libbie's original dress. The placement of the ears are also misaligned and I think the placement in your image is a lot better. Similarly the sort of "charcoal" color should be replaced with black to increase the contrast of the colors.

Worked with what I had with liquifying the original eyes but they are a bit derpy and it was frustrating to try to brute force it into kemono. I'm not satisfied with it either.

Wew lad. An aside, artificial wombs could be a story point in the VN where they aren't originally meant for it but can get costly upgrades that they cant afford when the company is tanking.

A bit better. The artfag tried to fix a wheel when it wasnt broken but the green color only being around her face makes it her more eye catching than if she had more normal colored clothing

I haven't tried the demo yet, but I think you fags could use more characters. 3 is pretty limited on what you can do for a VN. Writer, Base (actual base the magenta one) and Impress, Along with the real math Libbie who got replaced by Maff could flesh out some character dynamics and bring much needed variety in personality, things to do, and body types.

There isn't really a "bad guy" to the actual 2017 LibreOffice mascot contest but more of a comedy of errors.

Joshing aside, I do appreciate you stopping by and taking the time to post.  Give the demo a shot when you have the time (it's really short; I'm a slow writer).  As other anons said, the tits on base and Maff are really big, but the artist is a breast man so I'm not going to complain about it.

I do prefer the color scheme in the second one more.  I don't recall anyone making a specific decision to change the color scheme, but this does look better than the current dark blue suit.


>3 is pretty limited on what you can do for a VN
That's mostly due to my limitations as the writer, and my slow pace.  I've been really dragging my heels on this since it isn't my primary project and it's been going on for over a year now.  We can potentially go back and add more content and stuff later (perhaps something akin to a point and click adventure game) but my goal is to have a functioning skeleton before adding too much meat.

Here's an attempt at working more like Tysontan with shapes, not lines but eyes could be better after studying her shapes. The hair fold on her shoulder is a real pain in my ass.

Some things for the artfags to take away from this: Libbie's shape design is diamonds and triangles. Tyson went overboard on triangle shading in the original submission but going from overdesigned to nodesigned like in the OP loses too much of the character. Use bits of colors and contrast as accents to her main shapes. 

I'll try it out over the weekend. Never played any VNs so I don't have a measuring point but how long are others like snootgame and the VN with cripples 4chan made ages ago. 

What else do you need to have the skeleton and how long are you planning on making it? I read the threads with everything being broken into 'Day 1' 'Day 2' maybe you could get a more range of character and event development by breaking it into weeks as the game progresses.

>Who this dude? is he gonna take over my place?
If you're the artfag I've been ripping into? Most likely not. You're better at clean art so you're better suited for 'final' assets in the VN but your skills for character design sucks so consider it critique. Something was lost in your 'final' along the way as 1 step forward 2 steps back. When you made something with no real shape design that was bound to happen because good character design IS good shape design, but the decisions you made on your own made a weaker design overall. 

What you're left with is uninteresting characters to look at which happen to have big boobs or hips. Hence the commend about making a booba half&half 9gag regurgitation of Libbie. If it ain't broke don't fix it, looking at the 1st VN thread in 2020 while the 1st artfag wasn't as polished drawing wise they had something closer to what would be Libbie with her iconic look. 

Go look at TysonTan's art to see how much changing shapes around with the same colors can give you very different characters, or that same the same characters can still have lots of smaller variations but still recognizable. Do some shape design breakdowns then apply that to your character art and they won't be as boring.

Hey, do you lads want some help with coding?
I got the game VN running under RenPy 8.0.3 out of the box and started reading some of its documentation, and would like to try working on this if you're interested.
To show that I'm somewhat capable, you can find a patch below that stops the intro music at the intro's end, and that allows it to be skipped - it was previously unskippable on purpose, and found it annoying (the documentation also disapproves it).

There was a male libbie was already done years ago by this guy. 
and how is multiple artists supposed to work? the backgrounds are all SD, and so far the only artfags got replaced assets by another. Do you not care about consistency and youd take more art by different artists in the same game? Most VNs have a consistent look.

In the meantime, have something that I've been playing around:
Tried to get an "infinite zoom" effect for the main menu background since it was static, but ended up with this wobbly zooming since you (probably) need to mess around with model based rendering to achieve that.

I trained a new one using the model AnythingV5 and I can upload a catbox link to it if you want, or you could tinker with that to see if you can get better results than I did.  I trained the loRA in mind so I could try to generate a character sheet / turnaround to model her in 3D.
I agree somewhat, but Stable Diffusion is just a tool. It's real value doesn't come from just running a prompt through it but through artists who integrate it with their workflow. Tools like ControlNET (https://github.com/lllyasviel/ControlNet) once they reach levels of maturity for practical use  will redefine the way artists make art.  It is not a replacement by any means, maybe except in the case of stock photos or generic vector art. There will always be artists because there are just certain things you can't replace.

Because 99.9% of the time AI looks like sheeit or is borderline uncanny and I have better things to do other than hit the refresh button six gorillion times on some MIcrocock or Jewoogle datamining web page just for one or two waifu bait images.
Also getting multiple different artists of various walks of life the world over is a great way to make Libbie less obscure. I plan to commission a talented artist to make a wholesome Libbie or two anyway once I find one I like.

I think of it as voting with my wallet on the future culture I'd like to inhabit, same reason I'll never ever EVER 'EVER' buy a Windows PC ever again and so far I've been very consistent with not giving MS money.

>That's just a bit inappropriate for a FOSS Waifu.
Why? If I pay a developer to make an open source program it doesn't cease being open source just because money is involved.
Or are you implying I should only contract artists who elusively use programs like Krita or GIMP rather than something like Photoshop, M$ Paint, or whatever bullshit is available on Android/Chromebooks for purity sake? Honestly not even I'm autistic enough to care that much. Sure I have a preference but in the end I don't have control over what people do in their private lives.
>voting with my wallet
That was kind of a normalfag idea in hindsight; there are vast forces of money and influence being wielded by individuals of intense evil, and your wallet or my wallet can't stand up to raw capital of that volume.  The concept of the invisible hand and the free market are currently irrelevant.  I prefer to think of it as building the future you want to see, or "being the change" (although that's also kind of a vague, hippie-sounding phrase).

It used to be a common notion that if you wanted to spend the effort creating something, you should make it beautiful.  Patronage of the arts was a way to do this if you didn't have the skill yourself.

>If I pay a developer to make an open source program it doesn't cease being open source just because money is involved

Good point. I've been occasionally thinking about why all these group projects struggle so much and how you could fix that problem. My answer thus far has been that you need someone with a vision to entirely run the show, but that's kind of vague as far as a solution or advice goes.

Maybe what you really need is to remove all the bottlenecks that prevent people from picking tasks and working on them. Create an outline of all the things to do ASAP, and fragment it into small enough tasks that there's always things that can be worked on.

Imageboards projects are a perpetual timesink no one is ever going to be credited for, and they will only go on for as long as the two fags behind it deem their community worthy of their unsung efforts.
That is, the tiddyfag and the writefag most likely have given up on imageboards altogether, think the Internet's not doing it for them anymore, or believe zzzchan have turned into a hot steaming pile of dookie.
Either way, this project is fucking dead.
Did you really think it would amount to anything in the first place? Name one (1) imageboard thread-based project that ever amounted to anything. Reminder, thread-based not just made by some anon who happened to post on imageboards.
Tiddy fag was always sporadic. Sleepystation died because the editor got perpetually busy and modern software sucks.

Hydrus was made by an image board user because he was an image board user. You can't disassociate the project from image boards.

You can't blame him. 8chan's death fucked things up for everybody.
He posts his weekly releases there and replies to post when he does, but aside from that he barely even touches the board. Odds are he doesn't even browse image boards as much.

Writefag here.  I will try to shed some light on the current status of the script and project.

First of all, and I know I've said this before, I am deeply sorry for the lack of updates and progress on the script.  It's no secret that something as small in scope as this VN could have been finished quite a while ago if I had a more consistent schedule and/or more drive to finish it, and it is purely through my laziness that things have reached this point.  We all know what happens to image board projects that don't have dedicated people working on them (and even sometimes the ones that do), and I am sad to say that it happened to me.

That is, burnout.  Getting a proper wage slave job last year has made time seem like it's standing still, and The Libbie VN is not the only long-term project that I have grown to neglect in 2022 and 2023.  There is a particularly demanding video project that I am recording footage for, which is a collaboration with other people on a fairly large YouTube channel.  That video idea still isn't finished, and there are other things I want to work on, so "going back" to the VN feels like the only decision I can make and yet the wrong decision.  I have fallen victim to task paralysis (read: being a wishy-washy faggot) and have not committed to a steady schedule.  My own struggles with pornography/internet addiction have contributed, as has some recent weight gain, although I have lost most of it once I realized how much it was affecting my mood and energy.  While I have no desire to enlighten you as to my personal life, I can at least say that I was trying to make some pretty significant changes at the start of the year, and a guy I was planning to work with on improving myself has returned to his old habits and basically stopped caring about himself.

The Libbie VN also grew to be larger than I thought, even though I think I did a pretty good job accounting for its scope at the start of all this.  The script for a simple 5-day VN that began as a shitpost is currently 30,500 words and 142 pages in my layout document.  By the time I'm finished, it may be as large as an actual novel depending on how verbose the endings get.  And as I have stated previously, it is not the only thing I do to be creative, nor is it the only thing competing for my time.  After multiple years of chipping away at the project and devoting much spare time to it but not finishing it, I have reached the unenviable point where I know that the end is within my grasp because I know exactly how much work it would take to finish it and do a good job.  This is where I have given up on many endeavors in my life, slain by thoughts of "yeah, I could get there if I wanted to" and the knowledge that the last 20% is harder than the 80% that came before it.

And that's just the script.  The "game" parts are still a skeleton with placeholders where the puzzles should be, and each of those will need its own process of iteration and testing to ensure it's a meaningful challenge but not obtuse.  Not a lot, mind you, but enough to ensure the game doesn't break.

With all this in context, I can say that the points in >>220183 and >>220186 about "someone else doing it" affecting my work ethic are completely untrue.  I have often asked for suggestions, ideas, and other input in these threads and have gotten basically nothing after the initial brainstorming sessions.  I am under no illusions about who will need to carry the brunt of the work: the VN can't exist without a script, and I'm the only one who's going to write and plan it.

>>220189 identifies some issues that do contribute to people on image boards getting burnt out (especially in an age where it's easier than ever to monetize what you create), but the "IT'S FUCKING DEAD BLARATARHGAH" attitude (echoed in >>220192; extremely organic, fellow anonymous user!) is far off the mark.  I don't use image boards as religiously as I used to, but the spirit of anonymity you get here will ensure I always come back, even if it's just to call people faggots and niggers.

If the artfag could update us on what he has or has not been doing then I think it would be helpful too.  The art is most of the reason I've continued writing, because God knows you could be doing something better with your time.

Neat.  Thanks.
And just to be clear, I will finish the Libbie VN script and I will finish the game, even if I have to code everything myself.  But progress will probably continue to be slow.
>I have reached the unenviable point where I know that the end is within my grasp because I know exactly how much work it would take to finish it and do a good job.

lol literally me, I've been experiencing this for the past 2 years with something of a "project" of mine, I know how far I have to walk/run to get shit done, I know I can do it and that that thought alone slows me down to a crawl. A rather big difference is that I'm completely, entirely on my own in my endeavors, I have no one helping nor cheering me on, no one giving me suggestions of any kind, matter of fact I've only met detractors and saboteurs down the path. Good luck.

Okay.  Writefag here with an update on the illustrations needed for each character.  The illustrations the drawfag posted are really good and the characters are mostly very expressive, but after reviewing my notes I think there are some changes I needed to make for the expression list.  I think there's been some confusion about the exact meaning of the word sheepish so I'm changing that to nervous to be clearer.  There is also now a distinction between sad and sighing to allow for more accurate expressions.  I have also removed the surprise expression since it was pretty close to shocked.

The size of Base Libbie's butt seems to be inconsistent in some of your drawings.  I think this is because her left hand is sometimes covering it.
I also think the drawing you posted as surprise made Base Libbie look very afraid, so I have used that for the afraid emotion instead.

I can use all of Base Libbie's expressions but Maff's expressions have a few that I'd like changed.  I'm sorry if changing the names makes things confusing for you but I need to have the files organized in a way that makes sense on my PC since I'm tracking all this.

Maff_Shy is good but I'm not sure if she is meant to be blushing, sweating due to temperature, or something else.  If you change her eyes to look to the side then I can use it for blushing.

Maff_Ehh looks like she's a bit nervous or unsure of things.  If you add sweat drops she could be nervous, or you could make her frown and add some tears and she would be sad.

Maff_Disappointed doesn't look like any particular expression to me.  I might just be autistic but I don't know what emotion should be coming through here.

I had put this in a wrong folder.  I will move it to the correct folder.

>maff Sad already done
The one you have attached as Sad is what I have saved as Sighing.  Her eyes don't look very sad so I think the illustration fits better for Sighing.

>maff Disappointed removed
I think you could change her mouth and add some small tears in her eyes and it would be a good Sad expression. Instead of her mouth being open, she could be biting her lip and trying not to cry.

>Nervous/Shy being the same emotion
I had originally meant for Nervous to mean anxious or worried (an "active" emotion) and Shy be more of a passive emotion. I think the Maff Nervous and Maff Shy illustrations you posted do a good job showing the difference.  Nervous is like the character is thinking "oh, this could be REALLY bad, but I'm not sure if it will be bad yet..."

Here is a Mega link with the illustrations you uploaded (not the new ones yet) and my names for them.
As I said before, I renamed some of them to be more accurate.  I know this is a bit confusing but it makes tracking things much easier for me (there were some illustrations that you said had one expression, but which I thought made better expressions for other emotions).  The red N spots in the chart are expressions that require new drawings.

Thank you very much for taking my request, and even doing two drawings. They turned out great, I really like the poses, the bodies are nicely drawn. I also like the high cut in the swimsuit as well as the two slightly different sets of fins.
I don't know if they were made smaller to fit into one image, but I'd love to see them at original size (unless they are already). If available I'd like to see the b/w linework too, unless its been saved over.
I don't know where you share your wips (assumed Discord?), but I hope nothing disparaging was said.
I tried to draw something back, to show my appreciation for taking the time to draw what you did. Quality is poor, but its the best I can manage: https://litter.catbox.moe/w4dm8n.png

>neutral pose with megamilk shirt or a whole new pose with megamilk shirt?
Could you do both? One with her Happy expression and a new shirt, and then a different illustration where she's doing the Mega Milk pose? If that's too much then just do the Mega Milk pose.

>butt size fixes
Thanks. However there are still inconsistencies with drawings where her arm is covering her butt and some others. You can check the Mega folder to use my filenames, but she has a smaller butt in Afraid, Angry, Blushing, Confused, Neutral, Sad, and Sighing.

The attached pictures show the difference on her left leg of her skirt.

Artfag, question for you: would it be okay drawing a couple of more sexy/joke illustrations for Maff and Art as well as Base Libbie?

I was thinking about endings and other jokes, and I think it would be funnier if there were some unique illustrations to give people reason to replay the game.  The "Oh no you didn't" expression for Maff can be used for normal dialogue so it won't go to waste.

The two ideas I had were:
Maff - A "You may spank it, once" illustration and a minor variant with her finger raised.  Like pic 1.
Art - A body paint illustration where her skin has lots of designs and decorations on it, and she is wearing only her art apron.  Like pics 2 and 3.

I promise I'm not trying to get you to draw porn.  If you want to draw less sexual stuff that's fine.

I wanted to update something first.
also mp4 ver.

The project I'm working on is a hybrid VR/mixed reality autonomous LLM agent that uses the open source Mixtral 8x7b model for text generation and CogVLM for image recognition. 

The idea is to create a fully interactive assistant/chatbot/waifu/Libbie with persistent memory that understands context in a 3D environment through batching models together. The way "memory" is done currently for interacting with LLM models is through storing each message continually inside the prompt, but this is terribly inefficient and most LLMs that can be run locally have limited context sizes (the amount of characters that the model can parse) which makes this difficult to do. 

This project will instead utilize Langchain (https://github.com/langchain-ai/langchain) for the embedding DB.

Whisper (https://github.com/ggerganov/whisper.cpp) will handle the speech-to-text processing.

All of this is will be able to be run on local hardware without using any third party provider such as ChatGPT. 

On the frontend, I'm using the Meta Quest 3 headset and the Unity Engine with OpenXR for handling scene data and the passthrough. I plan to move the project over to Godot once there is OpenXR or Meta SDK support for 4.2

Wow, thanks.

As for feedback:
- Her left hand looks kind of odd, like it's not properly connected to her forearm.  I think her forearm looks better, though still a little odd.
- This may just be me, but her right thigh seems like it's thinner than her left and she's holding it at sort of an odd angle.  I'm not sure there's a problem with the thigh, but her right glute doesn't seem like it's pressing into the seat as much as her left.

Looks really promising.  I like the general vibe and pose.  What is she reclining on?

The heart shape in the tail doesnt really look like a heart, the end of it needs to be extended and curved in a bit to form the shape.

I tried to fix the arm's foreshortening and the leg.  Other than that I don't know what to fix, so I drew other pose.

>What is she reclining on?
It's a chaise lounge chair.
>sitting the wrong way on a chaise-lounge
She really is a criminal.

I think the changes to the first drawing really help it, so you're definitely on the right track. Do you plan to color it?
The second drawing is good too, but I think there's something about her breasts and upper torso that doesn't quite look right. The line of her breast that's closer to the camera doesn't seem to make sense; it's like her ribs are indented by several inches.  I think this is because both breasts seem to be drawn in silhouette but the closer one wouldn't be that way since she's leaning down on her left side.
It may look more natural once texture is added to her body and my mind intuits that her left side is lower to the ground, but right now it just jumps out at me.

Thanks again for all the drawings. XFCE-tan is super cute and I will definitely need to find a place for her in the VN.

>Do you plan to color it?
Yep! Already did the outline and was doing some shading sketches.
Regarding the other pose, I think drawings shouldn't need instructions manual, if they look weird it's because there's something wrong.
Still, that's a sketch and I was trying to mark the center between the breasts for the bodysuit's zipper line.
I'm going to finish the first pose and return to the VN expressions, there's no plans for finishing the second pose.

I'm not sure if you are saying that I am nitpicking her pose in the second drawing, or if you are saying that you also feel there is something odd about it.

Regardless, I'm not trying to nitpick and anything I say is meant in good faith. The shading you've got there looks very nice. I'm sure the finished drawing will be great, as will the VN expressions.

It's been super nice to have you and the other artist making drawings in the last couple months, since I've been trying to get some larger projects finished so I can put my focus back on this one.

I'm saying if looks like there's something wrong in a drawing, probably there is.  Even when people can't actually put their finger on it.

>you are saying that you also feel there is something odd about it.
Yes, this.

The "drawings don't need instruction manual" part is when an artist tries to justify something in a drawing through excuses post fact.
Think of modern art, terrible, ugly and often with a wall of text trying to explain what it is supposed to mean.
Drawings don't need instructions manual, get it?  It should stand on its own.

Her right breast is smaller than her left one.
Also in the 1st pic her right upper-leg looks broken. Her right butt-cheek isn't lifted despite her leg suggesting that. That and her thigh is too far apart from her belly.
An easy fix would be to make her right knee point up instead of pointing in a 45 degree angle.
Other than that It looks very nice though.
Oh, when you said instruction manual I thought you meant for making art. I get what you mean.

I've decided for text to speech to use StyleTTS2, https://github.com/yl4579/StyleTTS2 and train a model for Libbie's voice. 

What style of voice should Libbie have? Any suggestions / speaker references welcome. Ideally in the future, it will be configurable, but no local speech synthesis model supports that yet.

I'll finish the poses with her in swimsuit first because it's part of her identity, then I'll try some variation like you suggested.
Also, I've been busy this past week and just now returned to drawing. I'll draw two more pose in addiction to these and begin the outline/colors.

Completed the neutral pose.  More as a proof of concept to see if it fits with the overall VN theme.
I'm used to do thick outlines but did them thinner this time to better match the other artist's style, along with mostly flat shading.

Also here's the other poses in transparent background. 12 poses in total, the last two were the one missing mentioned in the last post.
