    You're both very welcome.  Thank you so much for that bit of info, Perversewolf.  I didn't even know about that issue. :D

    Is it possible to get minis of these? I love them, but wish the sprite itself would show them.

    These are amazing though, i wish i was half as skilled!

    Fixed.

    I absolutely abhore pixel work, so you're not likely to see any of that from me.  Your best bet is to speak with someone in the community who specializes in sprite work. :p

    Ok, these are awesome but there's just one funny thing about them. I moved the ones I wanted into the generator section of my RPGVXAce folders in my steam app folders, but these have a number on them higher than the default pieces' numbers, so there's just a huge gap of empty spaces in between in the generator, each one leaving that space on the face blank. Its like, there's no graphic for eyes 11 through 22 (which don't even exist, mind you), so no eyes appear on the face, and its quite funny looking. 

    Also, since you mentioned free hugs *flies into arms*

    Yeah, sorry about that.  It's due to some additional parts I had downloaded from other users before creating these.  I had to number mine higher to avoid overwriting the other parts.  You could remedy the problem by either re-naming the files to follow right after the default ones, or you could copy some of the files with names to fill in the gap.

    The face recolor shapes. How to get it to work. If I just make it a face shape, it doesn't (just makes a weird blackface, like in old movies).

    I'd really appreciate it if you could come up with some curly hair at some point, when you're not too busy.  And maybe a (semi gender-neutral) mouth with bigger lips.

    You make some fantastic generator pieces, and I am loving the stuff you've made so far.

    If only there were sprite parts for the cat- and lizard-people faces... Sadly, I have yet to find one single thing in existence for VX Ace that is anywhere near fitting for that, and I can't draw, so making the sprites myself is out of the question.

    You'd be surprised how easy sprite work can be. Especially if you have a base to work from. Not to downplay all the work that can go into really good sprite work, but if you just want something simple like ear add-ons, I think you could pull it off! Pixel art is all about patience and attention to detail. (Which is why I hate it. :p)

    Well, I've tried using GIMP to copy some of the colors off of the cat head bases onto the default heads, but GIMP keeps slightly changing the colors as I paste them for some reason and I can't figure out why. Also, I have zero clue how shading (what colors to use to make the art look less flat and where to put them) works.

    EDIT: Also, figuring out how to give the head a cat-like shape is something entirely beyond my knowledge. If anyone can give a HIGHLY specific tutorial on that (as in, not just a suggestion like "look at pictures of cats/sprites of cats and try to do something similar", more like "here is a very specific outline of a character with a snout that looks like a cat, and here is the step-by-step method of the outline, the shading, etc. so that it doesn't look like a different animal"), I would be very appreciative.

    EDIT 2: Here's what I've been trying to do with the sprite head (the preview image doesn't show the part I've been working on). As you can see, the snout looks more like a mouse than a cat on the completed side-view one.
