    Thank you! Nothing too exciting, but I finished up some templates for a generator I'm making (just for fun), and here's a look at another PICO-8 game I'm helping with:/

    Ahhh, gotcha. I started the year by getting diagnosed with panic disorder, being pretty much back to normal by mid-February, then having it steadily get worse since March. Medication has either not really helped or put me in a lot of pain, so I'm just trying to take it one day at a time. 🙃

    Anyways, here's quick drawing/painting from earlier today:

    Hey everyone!
    I'm Amy, AKA Amysaurus, and I've been making pixel art for just about 10 years now. I've always had a thing for gaming, but there's something about retro/pixel styles that always seemed especially pleasing to my eyes. Ever since I picked up XP and starting fiddling around with the sprites, I was totally hooked.   

    Rules:
    1. You must credit me whenever my work is used.
    2. I take payment through Paypal only.
    3. References are optional, but appreciated.

    What? MSPaint? Paint.Net? Come on, GIMP is obviously the superior image editing tool! Especially when you load up on cool plugins.
     
    Though I am using the VX Ace generator parts for my game rather then Mack sprites, editing the images can still be a pain. I needed to really mess around with the generator images I was using to get them the way I want with the character creator script I am using. I did find a few handy shortcuts for some things. Like at one point I needed to properly crop almost all of the face graphics. I figured out though that I could drag image files over a open image in gimp and it will open it in a new layer, and I found a handy dandy plugin to export layers. So basically I could crop a whole set of images at once. And once I needed to recolor a bunch of images, but luckily they all used the same palette so I was able to make one which altered the colors I want and load it in.
     
    Really though, most of the sprites I am using I am using just because I had them available. If I could I would probobly use a completely different style. Maybe Kaduki-style sprites since they are usually 8-directional and my game features 8-directional movement. I shudder to think of redoing all the generator parts if I ever switch styles though... expectantly if 8-directional sprites are used. Well likely if I ever do switch styles it will only be if I manage to captu-- er... I mean recruit a sprite artist. *pauses and notices @Amysaurus posted... starts wondering what would make good bait for an Amysaurus trap...*

    Amysaurus got a reaction from PhoenixSoul in Sprites: Mack vs Chibi   
    Smaller chibi sprites (like VX/ACE or MV's) are great when characters don't have a lot of small details, because then you can really exaggerate the details that are there. The larger heads give a lot of room for expressions/variations in face style, although the head-to-body ratio makes them a bit of a pain for posing/animating. I generally like the chibi styles for RMMV and VX/ACE, although I'm not a fan of how the eyes look on MV's. They're a bit nightmarish. 

    Mack sprites, though I'm not personally a fan of the style, are really nice when you have more detailed character designs. You have the space to draw out clothing/hairstyles without having to squeeze in or omit details, have slightly more realistic body proportions to make animating easier, and still maintain the larger head size to add expressions. It's a weird complaint, but the issue I have with Mack sprites is that they have the larger body size everywhere else, but don't have any sort of neck. I think they look fine when the characters have a scarf or hood, but the head-shoulder area on sprites without them looks super awkward to me. 

    I don't really have a preference between the two styles when I'm playing a game, but from a spriting perspective, chibis are much easier to handle when you're making everything from scratch lol.
