@  Fire Blazer : (17 February 2018 - 01:31 AM) Idk, but hopefully not longer than 2 days, lol. Probably much less
@  xcrash1998 : (16 February 2018 - 02:13 PM) So you found a better host I guess.
For how long do think will the feshrine be down?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:44 AM) main thing is it'll probz just take a bit bcuz of how big the forums database is and stuff
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) so hopefully this goes relatively smoothly
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) ported over my other stuff first since it seemed easier and was a good basis for figuring stuff out
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) will probably do it tonight
@  Fire Blazer : (16 February 2018 - 09:43 AM) ye
@  Idiot : (15 February 2018 - 12:21 AM) Thanks for the warning!
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) so if you see the site go down soon, don't panic, I'm probably doing the move
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) I'm going to try the switch thing soon probably
@  Fire Blazer : (14 February 2018 - 10:37 PM) HEY GUYS
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:37 PM) Fantastic game though!
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:36 PM) Even Zelda's horse ass of a voice actor had more range than him haha.
@  Idiot : (13 February 2018 - 07:35 PM) I see your point but all I was trying to say is I don't think throughout the entire game, he doesn't even crack a single smile. Though I understand the grim nature of the story. That's no excuse though even TP Link managed to be downright cheery at times. BOTW Link is just a cookie cutter silent protagonist with little to no emotion outside of his main goal.
@  xcrash1998 : (13 February 2018 - 07:05 PM) And then there are also the side quests which add to the personalities of each character.
@  xcrash1998 : (13 February 2018 - 07:04 PM) To expand on my comment.
There is a lot of interaction going on inside the game (with link actually gesturing a proper response and explaining)
@  xcrash1998 : (12 February 2018 - 11:25 AM) Well, Skyward Sword had a lot of interaction with people (with names) and didn't have any npc's without a name (if you ignore the robot civilisation), it makes a lot of sense looking at it this way.
@  Idiot : (12 February 2018 - 04:18 AM) Man, BOTW Link has no personality whatsoever. Skyward Sword Link is best Link.
@  kirant : (10 February 2018 - 09:39 PM) I missed the chance to destroy lots of spam :(. Most of them for me are just a post or two.

Well, I've decided to start with making mugs(one of the only things I understand about custom FE stuff :). As it is, I know I'm not great yet, but here's my start. If I get good enough I might take requests, but definitely not yet, as I have a little way to go.

 

So! Let me introduce some characters!

 

Top left: Aon. Aon is the main lord of my mod, currently called Magnum Opus. He's a Mage Lord and the leader of a small village in the Irascil Empire (basically a larger Frelia from the Sacred Stones). Due to his emperor's actions, he is forced to flee and start a revolution to bring peace back to the continent of Magvel.

 

Top Center: Robin. Robin is a thief and a friend of Aon's. She later joins when Aon comes back to rescue his home village of Meralo from Irascil forces.

 

Top Right: Adam. Yes I know that he is basically Kent in Raven's clothes, but he looks good that way. Anywho, Adam is the leader of the Legion Mercenaries, and he joins Aon in his quest to take down Irascil.

 

Lower left: Wulfric. A Paladin and the former Knight Commander of Irascil, Wulfric left his position in the military, as he believed Irascil's invasions had been unjust. After relocating to Meralo, he had become friends with Aon and left with him to bring his empire back to its senses.

 

Lower Right: Cugar. A Hero who leads STEM, or the Sandstorm Tactical Entourage of Mercenaries. He and Adam have met in battle many times and respect one another. They have a pact to never kill the other if they end up on opposite sides, and Cugar is a descendant of the Tiger Eye, Caellach.

 

Well, that's round one of my characters. Sprite-wise however, any feedback or advice? I'm not entirely sure how well I'm doing, so I'll be happy to know.Attached File  First Sprites.png   20.58KB   2 downloads


Things I enjoy:

-A good smash opponent/partner

-Writing 

-Jamming on the Ocarina 

-Meeting new people 

 

Things I hate:

-Clash of Clans daters (Seriously people ...)

-Very judgmental jerks

 

Moral of the list: Don't be a scrub!  B)

Cugar is a descendant of Caellach, eh? The base/body does look the same, haha. and he's got Lloyd's head, right? XP

 

If you want some basic feedback... I'd try working on your color choices; try to match up the shades of new colors to old ones so the like... overall dynamic of the colors doesn't look odd. I can't really explain it well but in Cugar's hair, there's like, too much contrast between the different shades of his hair color, IMO.

 

Also, in both of the bottom two portraits in the image you posted, I think the neck is too long.

 

There's lots more to improve on but I don't wanna overwhelm you, def. just start simply and practice and my biggest advice would probably be to reference lots of things! like, stealing other people's work is bad but copying their style, technique, and the colors they use and applying that to your own work isn't bad (I don't think). you can learn a lot just from analyzing existing portraits and how they do what they do (for instance, Wulfric's neck is shaded kind of weird, try referencing someone else's neck!)
 

Alright I think that's enough for now, good luck! :)

For wulfric try matching his head up with armor that faces the same direction his head does. Easiest thing to do is to use the neck originally attached to the armor, and just transplant the head. Other option is to flip the portrait that head originally came from, then move it over. Other than referencing other work my only suggestion at this point is just play around with stuff.even if you don't think it'll look good just try something out that way you can nail down the basics before trying something a little more complex

Yeah, neck shading is basically where I die at. :unsure:  But of course, I've got a ways to go. Thanks for the advice, and I'll try out some other techniques and characters.

Wulfric looks odd as hell because of that neck turn. Anyways, I find them decent for an amateur. I'm not skilled enough in spriting to give more substantial criticism. I suggest you try splicing hair now since that will help differentiate your mugs and probably will show more of the flaws you need to work on. Try looking at good spritiers and copying them. And use a site like imgur to host your images.
