I really, really like my new meds. It's amazing how solving a small underlying problem can help so many others that didn't seem related. May 23, 2019

      Went through all the trouble of making an animated tile before realizing that I'd made it 16x16 instead of 32x32! No wonder it looked funny.

        Ah. Yeah, thought about that but the scale was completely wrong. It would have been too busy.

        I just need to come to terms with the fact that any time I'm working on animated autotiles it's going to be super frustrating.

        Well, yes, but what color am I choosing? The color of my character's hair? The outfit? Her eyes?

        @Ms Littlefish You'd think being polite would be something every home taught! It'd be nice if that were true!


        @Sharm Dehumanizing. Nice word. That sums it up. I guess sometimes people just don't care enough to treat others with respect. Quite a shame really.

        @ DesperateMeasurez I really do know a lot of families who instill the belief that they are the big cheese at any given moment. And that getting what they want by any means and without any semblance of sacrifice is OK and that anyone can be your pawn. So you'd think. But no.

        I know a few myself. Some are even relatives of mine in my "extended" family. It's sad but true. As kids, we were definitely taught to be polite and show respect. I'd never be able to look at someone as a "pawn." Feels inhuman.

        @Vexed: Sadly, it's the busts that's making it take so long. Editing existing stuff should help though.

        I think it'll be worth it, especially that your busts are so detailed. I bet the hair is the one that slowing the process! It's so well drawn! Vexed is right, everything goes smoother when you get use to the work.

        ^ Actually it kind of is.


        I think the settings need to be diversified for these RPGs anyway. Everything is either "OOOH SPOOKY MODERN HORRERRRRRS" or "MAGICALCHIVARLYANDFUSRODAH" :p

        Okay, so I guess I need to be clearer about this so you get why I'm decided the things I have. I'm making lots of tile sets and character packs. Each one will have a different focus and inspiration. If I were throw that out and just do a whole bunch of everything, in the end I would end up with something less diverse because I'd just do what I enjoyed and was comfortable with.

        Did not know about the Bhkkhuni, it makes sense that it could exist but I'm so used to very sexist way that most Asian cultures function that it didn't seem possible. Seems like it's an on and off thing, sometimes existing, sometimes not.

        A bit, dollmages has less rows and the battlers are bigger compared to holders.

        It's a brain thing. Well, both are, but specifically artistic ability. Your stuff is great, better than mine by far. My brain isn't coded for original pixel art really. But I can take two pieces and combine them into something new and it is... passable... I know what depression is like though, I was there just recently when I fired from my job and it took 3 months to get a new one (just last week) and my wife is due to have her baby before I get my first paycheck. =/

      Krita has the ability to wrap the edges of the canvas! This will make creating repeating tiles so much easier!

        I know! You'd think with how often you need something like that to make a good 3D texture that it would be extremely common.

    I got my start doing commissions for indie gaming projects and eventually found my way here. While I no longer do commissions, I really love to make pixel art and love seeing my artwork move and be interacted with. I'm currently busy making the Pixel Myth packs and loving every minute of it. I'd like to someday make a game that incorporates elements of RPG, VN and Point and Click Adventure games in a way that it's none of those genres but something different. I also enjoy writing and crafting (usually crochet).
