HI

In 2021, I have created a little 2D tool to create 2D character (not made with AppGameKit, but the 2D character or image can be used in any AppGameKit games ).




A youtube video to see it in action :
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHUIYqc641w



Changes or bugs to fix :
- the miror feature is not totally ok
- some changes with colors (set more easliy a color on sepected assets)

Todolist :
- autosave
- automatic depth sorting (option) to create easily a background or level (for a game)
- layers
- ctrl+C/Ctrl+V

The windows version (with source code) :
https://github.com/blendman/generatoon/tree/main/release

I don't have linux or mac to create a release, but on github there is the source (sorry not in agk, but in purebasic).

Maybe some users may be interested by this tool.

With generatoon, you can :
- create 2D characters and event 2D background if you have background assets (trees, rocks, ....)
- there is 3 banks for the creation : kind of cartoon human, a very simple cat, a very simple kind of strange/funny animal.

For the moment, it is especially useful for making small illustrations. If I find some time, I hope to be able to add more elements to create other types of characters.

Features :
- generate easily a character in 1 second (menu edit/create a random character)
- generate easily expression : 20 expression in a few second (auto-generate too) : menu file/save random expression.
- change easliy the character with the template system, save/use your template
- add, remove, move, scale, rotate, miror parts
- change the colors, the depth
- export, save, load....
- langage : english, french

The cartoon human :


The funny animal :


The cat :


The assets by body part :


Properties of the assets :


Template system :


Creation of different expression (randomly created in 2 ou 3 seconds) :


An example of utilisation (made in my comics tool "BDcreator") :
Sorry the comics is in french ^^



I hope this tool can be usefull for you

If you use it on your game, please post a screenshot


(no need to put me in the credits of your game, if you use the images created with generatoon, but you can put a little thank you it's always nice )



Cheers !
