@  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

Basically it's taking two or more different portraits and mixing them together.
Ex: Ewan's hair for Ray's body
Or something similar to that.

Yeah, you can "splice" things together by cutting parts off of one person's body, doing the same to another body, and then putting the body together, while using basic spriting skills to touch it up so it looks natural.

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually much easier to splice with Photoshop, because you can splice pixel by pixel (Better accuracy), and recolor with simple paint tools.

Paint allows pixel by pixel splicing as well, unless I don't really get what you mean :/

And I gave him that same tutorial, Felover. Awesome S***. tongue.gif

Naw, I mean you can zoom in really close, and you have better colors...and the the Lasso tool, which is like a crop you can bend the edges and stuff, and twist it around.

Meh, I'm content with Paint, and I rarely sprite anyway. 800% zoom is more than enough for me.

Paint is more simple, and you don't have the loading times.

But either way, the main issue with Cox's sprites is that they're saved as .jpgs...
Save 'em as .png's

Is this a recolour?

P.S. This is Maisa hidden in a mask which seems to go in beneath her wig, I mean hair.

Yes, but it seems, odd...I am not a spriter, but it jsut seems too odd, mostly because her skin is purple xD

I know it's supposed to be a mask, but it needs shading xD

That's one heck of a tight mask...

It needs shading, better colors to fit for the mask-like material, and it shouldn't extend past her face... it's a mask.

The main issue is shading though :/

Well how should I put it...
You're being a bit lazy when it comes to mixing the images. Rath's headband is still there- a major flaw that shouldn't been erased during the making of the splice, and furthermore the hair transitions amongst Lyn's and Rath's are rather choppy. Just a hint, but try and erase the outer portion of Rath's hair before attaching Lyn's. It'll make erasing the outer space a whole lot easier, without the choppy transitions.

Nice job saving it as a .png though
