that depends what program you use, in paint.NET you can select an area and just erase it, or fill with a colour that has some transparency (can make non-full transpies then). I found the program quite nice for pixelart
Am i supposed to do it for you again? :) j/k

With all the pirate stuff I've heard/read about only one of them has a monkey as a "pet"; all the rest have parrots of some sort.

Suggest you get a better program ;)

GIMP is good and free, but has something of a difficulty... mountain. Curve would be an understatement. Don't know very well about any of the other freebies.

A pair of Greek-style centaurs, and a scratch Dwarf Lord.

Re: Aura's Sprite Realm - New 19/9/09, Centaurs and Dwarf

Wow, those are reaally cool! :D
The Centaurs look so... Centauristic. :)
But I think the Dwarf's axes are somehow small, but I dunno, it might be just a problem in my eyes.

the axes look alright for me, they seem small cause they're not very impressive comparing to the beard and helmet
the perspective of the left side might be a bit off but that might seem so cause his torso is a bit too slim, "widening" him up a bit so his torso is visible also to the right of beard would do good to make him look more sturdy

Compare your dwarf with mainline ones. The proportions are off, and the outlines are way too dark, particularly the internal ones. The centaurs are pretty good - that's an intelligent use of the merfolk bodies.

Wow... I really like the centaurs. Makes me want to try to fit them into my campaign somehow! There aren't any existing references to centaurs in Wesnoth, right? Presumably, then, they are *extremely* rare or even unheard of within the normal geography of Wesnoth, but perhaps the elves of the far west or south have dealings with these strange creatures?

Teamcolors for everyone! PM me for a teamcolored version of your sprite, or you can do it yourself. If you just happen to like magenta, no hard feelings?

Yeah... That'd be so cool... :twisted:

:oops: I'm so sorry!!! My computer wen't into the shop a week ago, and it still hasn't come back; I'm working from a library computer now... I have some cfgs finished(I can't remember which) but they're on the other computer. My computer will be back in approximately a week.

The centaurs are great! The greek/roman inspired armor is awsome.

I've got to go for now, I'm not sure when I'm going to be able to type again after this. :(
My computer just got back to me with a new hardrive...

Oddly i like those centaurs more than the mermen! (well yes i think mermen shouldnt have any armor, but not just because of that)
