        Animations can be very difficult. There are some programs to help with this but it can still be a challenge. You might try graphics gale. Its free and it helps you create a sprite sheet.

        yeah I've got a few programs that might help. hopefully I get better at drawing them like I have with characters and backgrounds. the particle programs seem harder to use and I can't find a ton of tutorials for the 2 that I use.

      thanks to custom motions, I can have my characters look like they're dashing too and from foes. hence my current profile pic.

        that's how I felt about it. like I animated my slime enemies rolling to and from the actors during their attack phase and it was just something really neat about it.

        I actually looked at one of the SF battlebacks for MV and drew it in my own style. the lines could be waaay straighter and the colors more varied, but it could look worse for a first attempt.

        yeah, if I get to where I can't draw them myself, then I'll definitely be doing that. I could see that happening tho as I'm more of a character artist than anything else.

        Have you tried edits of the RTP icons? I did that for ACE, and got some interesting ones just by tint changes or combining two into the same icon.

        how did I NOT see this reply... I never got notified all this time... weird. I thought about doing edits and I still might depending on how I feel about the icons I have later on. I couldn't decide on whether to make them pixelated or just draw them normally.

      FINALLY figured out how to reduce my lag issues a bit. and other than the weird shadows under the characters (that i have no idea how to rid myself of...), i can finally get back to work on things!

        You can just edit the image in the system folder and make the whole thing transparent.  But if you really need help with stuff, you should post on the forum.

        battles are lagging heavily with Yanfly's Battle Engine Core on. I'm not sure what's causing it or what not. No one else seems to be having this issue with it. Animations come out really slow and everything else seems a tad laggy as well. here's the link... I forgot to erase a lot of the image files though so i think it's kinda big... if you need me to erase stuff first lemme know. here's the link https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wywn87v5ejdjb08/AABYOrs4UyjdxISi4SaOC5M_a?dl=0

        If you suspect it's a plugin, just disable the plugin and see if it still lags. You don't need to send someone the project.


        Since this has turned into a "help me" request, I'm going to go ahead and lock it.  Please post in the forum if you need help.

        I guess they are supposed to be sideview battlers. In that case, Brown hair dude should be also looking towards left (like blue haired) and maybe hold is sword towards left too. Otherwise, your art is really nice.

        I was thinking about the eyes on Ray (brown hair). It was changed when I was trying to get a front view RPGMakerXP thing going. I never changed it back lol. And thanks! It takes time drawing these characters (still working on the 3rd one as I type), so I appreciate the compliment.
