Re: Pixel Art Tutorial Snippets

Regarding what you said about Allacrost, how has the experience with Wesnoth differed, in your opinion? Wesnoth's sprites/screen size are on the large side according to the measures you gave, too. Also, would you have any handy tips when it comes to breaking out of a "rigid" feel in sprites due to d...

Re: Discussion of modern fantasy

Sturgeon's Law. It's not like lousy fantasy is new or anything. Also, I read a biography of Tolkien once. It was a long time ago, so correct me if I'm remembering wrong, but as I recall from it, Tolkien's initial intent never was to write a fantasy story in the first place. He invented a language, ...

Re: Funny units names

I had an orc named "Prudish" once.

I guess he wasn't very popular at the orcish feasts.

Re: Maeglin's Design Point Roundup

Realism isn't necessarily a bad thing, if it's realism for the sake of making things more enjoyable. After all, a 100% surreal game would probably be just as annoying as a 100% realistic one, albeit the surreal one would probably at least be more interesting. What's bad is when realism is given a hi...

Re: Maeglin's Design Point Roundup

Ahhh, FPS games. Well, I play/have played a lot of old FPSes, but not very many new ones (partly due to not being impressed by the demo versions, partly due to being primarily a Linux user for the most part for the past few years, and pretty much exclusively now since my Windows XP disc no longer wi...

But eg i posted something on http://www.wayofthepixel.net/, and look what an awesome paintover some kind soul gave (especially the folds): I'll have to check ...

Re: The User Art Topic

These are some various attempts I made at doing character sprites for a project I've been working on. None of them are done, most of them suck. This forum's the best place I can think of to get actually useful feedback on this kind of thing, being home of the spriting masters, so I figure it's worth...

Re: Dragon sprite

I also love the idea of having that "eat" animation for a killing blow, if it's workable.

Re: Minotaur Artwork Revised

Why does the "behemoth" have the smallest sprite in the set? Isn't "behemoth" supposed to mean something big?

Uh, yeah, that's it. :/ There's actually a bunch of stuff on my page that shouldn't be there...

I'm stuck on the Long March mission. It seems impossible to win - no matter what I do I'm dead within 4 or 5 turns, the Elves or the Undead always kill one of my main characters. I've tried moving them slowly but to no avail. The version of the game I'm playing is 1.3.14 I start the mission with th...
