Don't worry about it, I'm just interested in what the outcome will be since this is the first piece I've contributed to in the game.

Animation will be funky, looking forward to giving it a shot.

OK, guys, there have been 277 views of my latest attempt now, and I still haven't received a single comment. So what's it going to be? I'm not even going to try to animate anything until I get some pointers on what people actually want out of this thread. IMO the Delfadors we have made are by far su...

Is it really that bad if he's extra tall? He's just as tall as he was, he's just thinner, less messy, has a smaller collar, is more purple, and somewhat darker. Also, and I think I forgot to say this earlier, I imitated his portrait art by giving him the shoulder armour of my original "majestic" sp...

And it was so that Hender was Summoned to the thread of the Elder Mage. And the Art Gods said upon him: "This would be more useful". "Who am I to defy my fate?" said Hender, and boldly entered the old Mage's thread. It was a dark and perilous thread, but Hender saw that the Delfador was somewhat too...

Happiness! :D <== unrelated This was actually more intended as a learning experiment, which is why I posted it in the art workshop (wasn't that appropriate?). From my POV, it was a success, though, of course, I wish I did better. By the way, is not the Princess Redeth did good enough for trunk? I th...

IMO the problem with the old battle princess was that it was in a different (and worse) style than the princess itself. If Redeth's princess is L2 and not L3 like I thought, a L3 must be made in the style of Redeth's L2 (because IMO, his L2 is far superior to any of the L3s in this thread), so as to...

Did you make that superior sprite just now?

:( And I was just starting to grow content with my latest one.

Yo.

I was bored and made a demon-ish thing. I was wondering whether you wanted it for your faction.

Level 2 and 3 would probably go quickly if you want them.

DOUBLE POST!

I added some contrast, gave her a blue cloak in a different design (more roman/rangerish, not sure which), more gold, less pillowshading, more clearly defined edges, etc.

I wonder if I overdid the dithering on the cloak. Nvm, here it is, anyway:

More enhancements. I didn't like your first edit so much, but your second is really cool. Looking at my previous sprite again I realize that she's too thin and that esp. the legs didn't really work the way I did them. I'll take a shot at editing your last design. Time will tell if I actually improv...

The problem, of course, of making her look like a man, is that people won't be able to tell that she's a woman (apart from her portrait and the noise she makes when a poked with a sword). Anyway, I made her slightly larger, as I realized she was tiny compared to Konrad, and modified pretty much ever...

Damn! I just realized my sprite sucks. I'll need to polish it and post a new version. Your new princess doesn't look "battle" enough. Those clothes look like they would get all cuaght up if you started running around in them. True. I'll try to fix it. Why not make the current battle-priness' hair mo...

Let's make a new battle princess!

I don't like the battle princess much. It's got too much "battle" in it and not enough "princess". I've made a basic sprite for how I think the sprite can progress. I'm hoping for feedback and maybe help. I don't know if she should be team coloured or not, but I made a TC-skirt anyway. I can recolou...

I'm not very good at pixelling (yet!), but I'm modestly good at pencil-work; not to the point where I would want to try and make a career off of it, but to the point where I fetch compliments when I draw and people ask me to draw stuff for them. My experience is that there are three things that are ...
