So I'm new to Cloud Novel, which is a great site from what I've seen so far. I wanted to create a visual novel that I've already written out. I have a question about the sprites though. I've seen many of the in-site sprite creators which seem awesome, but... I have no points. Is there any other way to get them? All help appreciated! :)

I mean, you can make a post in the free collaboration forum and see if any artists are willing to draw you custom made sprites for free. 

If you check under the "free" NOT "premium" resources, those are all free and don't cost points. Have you tried looking there? We have a LOT of free character sprites that don't require points.

Huh, I didn't check that, thanks for the quick answer. Although, if there are artists that can make sprites for you, is there a way to make my own?

Yes so you can draw sprites yourself, but you need a paint drawing program like Photoshop, GIMP, or Paint Tool Sai. 

How the character sprite turns out depends on your own drawing skill. 

However, if you just want to create your own character without drawing, we have a few Character Creators on cloudnovel here: https://cloudnovel.net/search/avatar?q=games

This one is completely free: https://cloudnovel.net/Sonya/avatar/lolita-creator

Great, thanks for the help! I'm actually a former Ren'py user so the fact that you can get sprites in-game sounds amazing!

P.S. Unrelated, but love the option to change profile picture.

So, I was able to draw a character sprite.(might not pass as anime quality, but I think it works) Is there a specific way to upload it? Hope this isn't a lot, I'm just trying to understand the new experience.

@ImmortalGenesis I know im not the leader, but from my understanding, this is how it works. 
First you save your art work (from whatever platform you use to draw) as a PNG file, upload it too an image hosting site (such as deviant art) go to your visual novel, add character, add their sprite. in order to add your sprite,  go to your image that you uploaded, copy the image address, and paste it in the space that says source. Then repeat this for any other poses for your character.

Oh I see, thanks so much! I probably would've been confused about that for a while...

@ImmortalGenesis You should check out the basic Documentation (Help > Documentation) or if you prefer video, we have video tutorials on our official Youtube channel. Just search the CloudNovel tutorial. However, while some of the video tutorials can be a little bit outdated (for example, we no longer support DeviantArt sta.sh link after it becomes one with Wix), it still covered the basic and applicable.

The tutorial for our newest feature, Drag n Drop is also available on Youtube.

Oh, I should've guessed this was in writing somewhere. So if I want to upload something, trello.com is the way to go. Although the premium version seems to be different... Okay, thanks, I think I'm good now.
Uhhhm so I’m trying to make a visual novel on a mobile device (IPad) and I’m also drawing my own sprites so I cant get a URL...is there a way to avoid using a url-?
