@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  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

oh wow, that is a LOT! I like the lance-user at the end.s he looks quite cool. I would kind of like to see it animated.

 

The character that looks like a splice between Ephraim and Eirika (or rather, it's like, Ephraim with what looks to be Eirika's promoted class's sword XD) is also cool, though I think the way he uses it seems a bit weird :P

 

and of course you have a lot of portraits haha, they are simple but not too bad, I like how you have names for all of them--just curious, do you find it easy to come up with names? I personally don't... I struggle a TON and am rarely ever satisfied with it. I mean, if it's just thinking up a name, I can do that, but I am sooo bad at deciding on them. T_T

I'll try to animate it, but I don't know how

 

Yes I used Ephraim's sprite when he gets priomoted with Eirika's sword when she gets promoted, It looks like a bit of Eliwood's Class when he is promoted but his Sprite (to eliwood) is not really beautiful in my opinion

 

I'm not masochist, I don't want to make something complicated (how i find the names? Instinct? :'D no, seriously, I like names that's sounds good for me ^^

 

 

I can't see them XD

 

really? ._.

hmm, well I think the easiest way would be to make a GIF animation, though it is still not very easy haha

 

unfortunately it has been a LONG time since I made an animated GIF and I couldn't really tell you how to do it or what program is good :( sorry

 

it's ok if you don't animate it though, I was just thinking it'd be cool to see it animated :)

 

I agree that Eliwood's sprite looks kinda ugly haha, yours looks cooler, it just feels more like the motion of a lance than a sword, I guess

 

Haha that makes sense, yeah I tend to want something cool but I don't like it if the name is shared with someone I already know, like someone I know IRL, or online, or a game character, or if it uses the same name as another character I've made up, or the same name as a friend's made-up character... I put too many restrictions on the name and then I just can't decide on one XD

I can make GIFs with Gimp, I can try :)

 

That's the reason I prefer Ephraim's sprite and Eirika's one, their animation looks more fluids, yes It's a lance animation on the basis for my own sprite, I'll try to change that

 

names are fun to find, but at the same time this is really hard

Even so it's quite nice. All of your stuff is quite good even if some are a bit basic in the body. Better than most people when they first get started, myself included. :P

I can see them on my phone :D wow that is alot.
Ok so bith animations are pretty cool, though the Ephraims crit looks a bit off to me since his sword reverts back to a spear in the blurred frames.
Mugs are pretty coll. My favorite is Eryn.

It's not a half bad start for an animation. I'm not incredibly experienced with animating, but I would recommend making the "slashing" motion blur frames a little longer, kind of like the Swordmaster's critical.

You know, I'm not too sure. Do any experienced animators have something to add here?

Haha I'm not exactly experienced, but I'm thinking maybe you should make it clearer that the character is blurring into the slash? Like how Fe7 dodge frames are (they give the illusion of swiftly moving from one place to another). Have the character blur into the spike part (using their pallette). Slowing down the animation as you work can help too, to see any kinks that need ironing out.

Mugs for the most part are pretty solid. The only real concern that comes to me right away is using the MSPaint Black color. Basically try not to use such a color as it ends up being darker than the border of the sprite and everything will look wierd. The border is actually kind of a dark purple-ish color actually. Even when I sprited, I wasn't really good at making custom colors, but I tried to work with what was offered in the FE8 scheme. lol

 

Besides that, I've never been informed in battlesprites, but my best suggestion would be to look at sheets from the game and try to mirror their movements as a good reference point.
