Edge frame?

Been playing around with a small border around the sides of the window as if the picture was not fully painted to fill out the paper.



Maybe this is too intense, and posting this I'm noticing you can see repetition along the bottom, but I'll play around with it!

It's achieved using the same bleeding watercolour effect that I'm using for the lighting, which means this could be use to create some interesting transitions and effects:



I've been using Zelda-style black letterboxing when listening in on a conversation, but that doesn't quite suit this art style, so maybe I could do it like so now:



Of course conversations don't necessarily have to be visually differentiated from regular gameplay, but maybe this can work.

As a bonus, currently having some inspiring weather:



Looks awesome, but at the same time I'm too trained to interpret it like a flashback, a dream-sequence or a memory if the edges aren't filled to think of it any other way. Which may or may not be what you're going for Wink

(Oh it actually sticks around where you are? Here in Malmö it's just molten coldness Sad )

Thanks! I guess it kind of works here then, since the whole game basically is a flashback haha

(No guarantee that it'll stay for more than a day or two, but we'll see! I'm relatively to the south, but even the southernmost of Norway is a fair bit further north than that of Sweden so I guess the difference can be significant Waaagh!)

Nice, it looks like an appropriate stylistic choice then. And if you have any scenes that aren't flashbacks you can graphically hint at that by removing the border.

(either way it's a good excuse for hot chocolate and watching series underneath a cosy blanket Coffee )

Hooray for inspiring weather! \o/

And the gif where the borders are the thickest kinda reminds me of a postcard, there might be some interesting stuff you could do with that stylistically!

Ohh, that's also worth keeping in mind, yeah!

Since our heat pump is broken it's also an excuse to make up a fire Coffee

Perfect, considering I was inspired to do it in the game after first doing it by hand in GIMP for a digital Christmas card Cheesy

This is lovely, and really fits the style Kiss

The bright letterbox looks great and I am sure it works a lot better than a regular black one for your game. Also, I envy you for that snow!

This letter-boxing looks lovely. Great job with art. Kiss

Half of Spain is under snow (50 years maximums these days), for many locals its catastrophe as Spain is not prepared for something like that, but I live at coast near Alicante, no snow here. Cry

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that. I did not know about the situation in Spain and had to google what you are going right now. Glad to hear your area is not affected, vdapps.

I, too, love the watercolor letterbox dialog frame effect.
That whole watercolor look of the game (is it new? cannot remember this from before my absence) is awesome.
