@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.
@  Ezra : (26 October 2019 - 05:49 AM) I think it's because a lot of newer FE players didn't frequent forums growing up. And those that do probably end up on Serenes.
@  Elwood : (25 October 2019 - 07:30 AM) I would love to revitalize this place I'm just not sure how that would be done. I mean with how main stream FE seems to have become I'm honestly surprised we don't have more members.
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 08:04 PM) tfw u not coming here results in not seeing a PM from last month T_T ok gonna try and check at least every couple weeks now even if there's nothing here, lol...
@  Fire Blazer : (21 October 2019 - 07:54 PM) I come here almost never because I've fallen out of habit and basically just accepted the forums are dead :( it's neat you come here every day tho
@  Elwood : (27 September 2019 - 05:52 AM) I still come here everyday because this is still my homepage in Firefox! XD
@  Ezra : (25 September 2019 - 03:07 PM) I also miss the days the forums I used were more active :(
@  Fire Blazer : (15 September 2019 - 05:39 AM) I do kinda miss the days these forums were active :(
@  Ezra : (29 August 2019 - 04:14 PM) *BOX!!!*
@  kirant : (19 August 2019 - 12:49 PM) Huh. Bothammer time.

@Dath: Tsk Tsk Tsk. You know i'm more of a Battlespriter/Weaponeer. The mugs are early though, like when I began.

Speaking of battle sprites...

Along with a random mug using FE8 Beta chars. Guess who was used. HINT: I paint on the battlefield.

*Comes in* Uhh, look at that! Some interesting stuff alright.


Heheh, congratulations, you have some skill alright, you ought to get a few more commenters. smile.gif




Well, about your last mug... I see where you're getting at, and it is funny. Some people will look at it, and think your style is damaged, but... It is actually pretty close to the ideal, yeah. The thing is... You sprite with more than 3 shades per colors. That leather of yours has a good amount of colors, while that orange could be done with like 2 colors. >___< And the distance in between shades(And this is the bad part), really, it is pretty small. If you fixed that, and managed to use a bit less border inside of your mug, it would actually be pretty close to the ideal. :3



In spriting, less is more. If you can give a similar impression with less colors, do so. Shade it with shades which already exist, instead of shades extracted from your ref, until you master roughly the way to do them. Use three colors with at least a good share of distance in most cases if possible, 3 colors is caballistic for almost anything in the GBA rom which is not white or pretty close to it. And even then 3 colors do every now or then. The distance in between the first and the third color can easily be over 100, 150, in RGB dude.


Also, try to compact it. Use the least colors possible as always... If it is something which is not much used in a mug, consider using maybe 2, 1 color on it even. 3 is the good number, 4 being used for things which the distance of colors is too great to fool the eye, you will notice when that happens.

All of that seems custom to me. That's how I made my TBA cosplay smile.gif.

The collar is incredibly pillowed and the mask is at a different angle then the rest of the face.

V'ren, paraphrasing what I said before(And which you even sigged. XD), your skill in making FE-sized linearts for spriting amazes me, wish I had half of that skill. >___< My spriting is computational and very trial-and-error, you are more talented than I am in such an artistic field.


That being said, dude, I have a question. Why do you shade with 4 shades? 4 shades for me is something saved for when you want to go from a very light shade to a very dark one IMO(Like blonde women in general, which need to start in something almost as light as the skin and end in yellow), save cases such as hairs I don't see much use for a 4th shade. >___<'


Spriting is, among a few other things, optimizing the use of colors, since after all the sprites we received as bases only had 15 colors. For example, in an armor, usually there are only 3 shades. Darkest shade is used in anti-aliasing from the border color to the other shades(Like just a single pixel by the side of each border pixel so it doesn't clash too much), and first and second shades are then used in an intercalated form to show shape and lightsource(Out of experience, the lightest shade usually forms geometrical shapes "floating on a sea of second shade" to show the armor is not round)



So again, dude, I would kill for your linearts. But I think you have to work on studying shading, yo. Do it and you will be an FEND-level pro, seriously. I honestly think I can't draw, but I can (almost)shade, you're the opposite IMO. Improve on your shadings and surpass me, pretty much. wink.gif




Anyways, can't wait to see your mudkipz. ^___^
