and lets read on along...
I am fairly new to MUGEN/IKEMEN as a content creator, but i have been around the times back in 2005, crazy world back then,
I have a legitimate question. why did people not commission your pixel art for mugen? back then???
there are a TON of things released on this platform over the years and it has a cult following.
so many talented people have made some really amazing things.
and rightfully so, mugen has some very crazy moments over the years. its like some dream match up.
even people just stumbling up on saltybets or youtube algorythm black hole you see mugen pop up from time to time.
people have put things out for free and i know that mugen itself is a engine. many people love the engine and its great.
i know we cant sell mugen complilations with music and sprites from other games...BUT!!!!
you make a 1v1 fighting game with a stupid arcade run.
and at the end of the game its like a marriage proposal....IDK all of the sprite work and comission is a per user basis.
how much would you charge? and would you even fucking buy it??
chances are NO, but , what if you sell your creator service??
as a commission? they create a small one on one fighting game
you create two pixel art characters all original but they get to design and work out gameplay with you.
you get paid money half on start and full payment when finished.
upon payment there would be a business agreement between two people and thats it done.
if they decide to release it online or whatever and "share" your work thats up to them.
they place the money up front for whenever someone commissions it for however much it cost and you charge the money.
( now this right here is a whole other fucking bag of shit and a headache by itself already) but on average like what if you create things like a lot of content creators here....like this is just an idea what if????
you offered this service to them and how much it would cost and is it even fucking legal to do so??
on top of that you take the time to sprite and animate which already by itself is a pain in the ass to do.
but, we love games so we trudge on. right????
look, the reason i am asking is legitimately
can you do this and if yes, then why have other content creators do this more often??
making things in mugen is already a pain in the ass but why not make something out of it?
with being a content creator why wouldn't you sell your pixel art?
with that i mean like can you even just straight up sell your sprite work online?....
i am legit curious as to why others don't adopt this as a standard??
could you? tough??
is that shit even legal?
lets say you tell someone hey" i will pay whatever crypto currency or whatever choice and i will sprite edit you a character
heres my sprite work and prototype blah blah blah blah.....
can you even do it in something you can show off and be like hey....i am a sprite artist and i can code characters in this weird ass game engine that uses a language that doesn'tr eally make sense but its well documented, iI an create you a shitty rip off of a ( insert __________ character name with godawful gameplay and design here)
will make (insert whatever character here)
