I see...That doesn't mean you didn't spend any effort in making it look good though, and you know it.
Seriously, fill in some color and throw it back at the thread. Someone's gotta like it.
Anyway thanks!! If you submit yours I'm definitely backing you up too.
listen your design is solid man
you have a lot of talent and the idea behind your dude was really great
problem is, you have to sell it to a bunch of overcritical self-important nerds
so even if you don't break though to round two, you made a real kick ass image
and that doesn't diminish the skill that you have
or the things that you learned or the work that you did
its an incredibly slick design and i know it'll get far in the running
yeah colors are tough
i try to go back and look at the old watercolor pokemon drawings
just to see if i'm thinking the same way he was
minimize complexity or use it like caterpie and gyarados
ill do some more work on it tonight i guess
yeah! mess around with legs and maybe just like
i dunno, gardevoir doesnt have legs but that kind of dress/cloak on
maybe try something like that?
i dunno im just throwing out ideas
i may be full of shit though, haha
hope alls well with you man
yeah, weak armor won i think
but they might be doing a few more abilities?
the two arms on your dude are awesome
i really love the blades up top and then the crystal ball hands
but i think he needs to be grounded somehow? i dunno man
i dont know about runes on mine though, cause the worm was sort of hijacked
was thinking i might switch the wasp around to be some sort of flying brain
youre right thinking with pushing more psychic stuff with runes though
just gotta push that element more on mine somehow
hahaha man i have to fuck with mine a little bit
i dont think hes very like, psychic looking now
but i totally see the megaman boss haha
yo i love your mantis dude
the incense antennae are so great
really clever stuff man
but is he gonna have legs?
or maybe like the cloak covers his abdomen?
im not sure im just thinking out loud
i really love the idea man
do you think you could do something maybe with the idea like
how ants are all sort of connected in kind of like a hivemind by the queen?
like this could be some sort of queen servant that issues orders to other ants
and then maybe that power transcends the ant hive so it has psychic powers over other things
you know it could be like vespiquen or something?
i dont know, i'm just thinking out loud haha
im not sure how you could show that idea though
Ha ha ha. Yeah, I am back. Our project was shut down due to missing deadlines etc. but some friends and I have bought the rights to the concept and are going to try and get it out. At this point I am not certain on the platform anymore (could go mobile?) but my programmer is back at work so we will see how it goes. I am going to go through my files and re-catalog all the sprites we already have and then I will resurrect the thread. We would love to have you back!
We'll probably get killed for saying this publicly, but I agree with you.
I won't bash sprites, so I'm keeping quiet here.
About the artists voting thing, it sounds fair at first, but then you'll remember that everyone is going to use the sprite, so it's only correct to let them vote.
Some people may like the more out-of-line sprites -- opinions can be weird, too bad we don't have a say over it.
Let's just hope for a more supportive community in the poll next time. Cheers. *clinks glass*
