This whole 3/4 perspective is tripping me up. Does anyone know of any good resources for referencing 3/4 view animals? Something like Sim Park, but not isometric. I keep drawing frontal view sprites, and I know they're not going to mesh well with 3/4 view plants and buildings.

Actually, isometric is a pretty good reference. Iso and RPGs are usually in the same or similar perspective, it's just that iso has the grid going a different direction.

Maybe an example will help. A 4x4 square will be 3x4 in 3/4ths perspective. So figure out how tall your character is in front view, divide by 4 multiply by 3, and then overlap things until you get that number. Head over shoulders, waist over hips, thighs over knees, calves over feet, ect.

Wait, no, that's wrong somehow. Shoot. I need to come back and try again with examples when my brain gets back from sick leave.

I feel like banging my head against a wall every time I want to find that post that shows all the plugin header codes. Then I think "next time I find it, I'm going to bookmark it". Then I think "wait a minute ... maybe I bookmarked it last time because it took me so long to find it". Check bookmarks, and there it is :)
... a few of my main characters standing around doing nothing lol. I mostly wanted to see them together on screen.
Today I drove through my city of 100,000+ people during rush hour and the streets were nearly empty. Just so I could go get my favorite burger. There a dental assistant (she said that's her other job, even though I didn't ask) took my order and handed me a burger. I know it's bad out there... But wow, she's either atrocious with her money, or "it really be like that".
