@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  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)

Been spriting for about four years now, so I can say I've improved a fair bit. I could have improved more if not for the countless hiatuses I took, but I'm pleased with my progress thus far.

You should know who this is. I intended to make a Zelda RPG a while back, so I made this for Link's portrait... that flopped big time. Ah well, I liked the portrait at least. =D 100% Custom.

user posted image
This was meant for the Zelda RPG as well, but as I said before, it was a flop. The angle was inspired by Golden Sun's battles. Also 100% Custom. Incomplete.

This is an original character of mine, Zanryu. This sheet is done in the style of the Fire Emblem games for the Game Boy Advance, as they're the most detailed, crisp and clean sprites used in the series up until the Gamecube, Wii and DS installments. Those can't be easily replicated... 65% Custom.

user posted image
Another character of mine, Alyssa. She used to be rather casual, but someone on Fire Emblem Universe asked to use her in a hack as a dancer, so I redesigned her to fit the part. About 50% Custom.

user posted image
Aaaaaand one more original, her name's Amanda. She's still incomplete. =/ 40% Custom or so.

user posted image
My exgirlfriend (now my best friend) runs a small forum, and a member there is working on a 2D MMORPG. He saw my sprites and asked if I'd be interested in helping with the project, and I said I would help with weapon icons and such, but nothing else. I created the three icons in the boxes to be similar in style to the sword on the bottom left. 100% Custom.

user posted image
Requested by a friend of mine. It's Fatima from Luminous Arc 2. 100% Custom.

Yeah... I haven't done much that I'm proud of recently. =/ I'll make more though, I can say that much.

Made for the Community Hack on FEND. Top left sprite is Alexis Aubrante, Abigail's sister created by Aeorys/Anonym. Her and I decided if we needed more female characters in the hack we'd make some pegasus sisters, so we did.

There might. We didn't WANT a third, we wanted it to just be our thing, but we've had three people who want to make pegasus knights now because of us. >_>

FE6/7 colours. I didn't get FE8 colours because I she's meant to go straight into the FEND Hack, which is a hack of FE6.

The frames are pretty good, frame-making is a very good and important skill (especially for people who sprite for hacks).

The chibi is amazing, much better than most that I have seen anyway, do you take requests for chibi-making (provided the portrait is already done)?

The only thing that bothers me is one pixel on the chibi's forhead that doesn't look like hair or anything. Besides that it is great.

That pixel is part of the hair, it's from the thinnest strand of hair.

Also, that was my first minimug, I'll need more practice before I take requests.
