@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  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.

Man, this forum is so dead.

Anyway, nice looking Flonne. Looks pretty much just like the one in the Disgaea game (As I'm guessing that's the picture you referenced), so no real problems that I can point out.

Not bad.

The chibi shading is kinda messy. Looks like it was just resized but not fixed all the way. It's pretty much just the hair and the trim.

The half blinking frame seems to lack some shading on the near eye. A little more second shade would help I think. And it seems like the eye is too long for the near eye on the closed frame as well. I think shortening it one pixel would help.

As for the actual base sprite itself: The angles of the armor are all over the place. The shoulders are facing one way, the collar another way, and so is the chest plate. There's also something about the eyes on all your sprites that bother me. I can't quite put my finger on it, but that might just be me, so whatever. The face as a whole looks good to me. I think your hair would benefit more if you used more of the second and third shades. At the moment, it looks a bit messy with a majority being the first shade. Actually, a lot of your sprites look like that (using a lot more base shade than the rest), aside from your really good avatar. You should shade all of your sprites more like that one.

I think it's a nice sprite overall though. Good job.

Ah I see it now. I like the one on the left, personally.

And on your splice: Whoah what were the bases? That's interesting use of shoulderpads I think?

The Eirika splice a little bit above seems kinda... deformed... and I can't say something much less generic than that... I don't really like the hair colors either. I think the shades kinda stand out slightly too much.

The hair on Rin, the most recent portrait, is very good though, IMO. In fact, everything is. And for some reason it reminds me of MK404's sprite styles, although your style is still pretty unique and awesome. happy.gif

*deformed

lol

I think it's a pretty nice splice, actually. While I recognize some of the parts in terms of them just looking familiar, I can't pinpoint exactly who was used, so that's a good start.

Those... side-plates remind me of like... idk... Gundam... or something... they also remind me of armor knights, too. ._. I'm having some weird insight today, eh... XP

Well, the collars look a little huge and disproportional. Also it looks like the neck and face have different shades of colour.

I get the left half of the cape but the right side looks a bit out of whack.
