Re: Tom_Of_Wesnoth attempts 'Art'

I've decided to revisit my terrible old 'War of the Guards' idea from eight years ago (http://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=18031&p=254530). Not for any real reason, I just thought it might be fun to try to adapt it into something that isn't terrible. For that reason I've tried to m...

Rebooting the Art Department

doofus-01 wrote:I'm not sure if we even have an Art Department anymore
Sorry if this is off topic, but what happened? Are Wesnoth's glory days past, or is it just a quiet time for new art?

Re: Change title screen music

Menu music is iconic, and should be recognisable, having it be randomly generated would be a bad thing in my opinion.

Re: Elvish units

I really like them, especially the top two and the magic users. I think the middle advancements for the unmounted unit are a bit too cluttered or 'busy'.

Re: Shield's Art

The Wood Mage's hood appears a little bit too dark, but other than that they're all good!

Re: Seeking help for "breaking the curse" scenario from SWC

You might have to try bringing out your Sheiks and Mullah. You'll risk losing them but their power will be very useful, and it might be the only way to win the battle.

Tom_Of_Wesnoth attempts 'Art'

Eight years ago, I attempted Wesnoth art for the first time. It didn't go well.
The worst part is it was meant to be an orc.

Eight years later, I'm trying again. I'm starting slow, with some simple frankenpack units. Let's hope I'm better than I was last time.
This is my first attempt. I was just getting back into pixel art with a simple frankenstien.

Similar thing with this one, although I reworked the cape and shoulders slightly.

This one I worked on a bit more. I recoloured the chestpiece to match the rest, and made some adjustments to the arms and head to make everything fit together better.

1172. When you realise you've been playing Wesnoth for literally more of your life than you haven't been playing it.

Re: Change title screen music

If the music is too loud, surely turning down the volume would help more than replacing it with another song. The song is short and repetitive, yes, but the main menu is there to get you somewhere else, not to be lingered on.

Re: Change title screen music

Perhaps it's because I've been hearing that main menu music for half my life (literally) and nostalgia is clouding my judgement, but I would hate to see it go. Every time I launch Wesnoth and hear that music it feels great. For me - it's iconic, and I'm sure it's the same way for many others.

I'm Back

I'm back. Those of you who were members of this forum eight years ago may remember me, and unfortunately those probably aren't happy memories. For those of you who don't remember me, allow me to tell you my story: It was 2007. I was eight years old. I was on the internet, looking for games, and I fo...
