Hello! :)

If possible, could someone help me create a cute little birdy creature for my game?

Resource Type: Overworld character sprite

Maker Format: VxAce (although MV is fine too)

Art Style: RTP (Chibi) style

Description: I'd like to make an adorable bird monster. It'd be based moreso on a chick opposed to a full grown bird. I'm afraid I don't know a color scheme yet, I was thinking yellow (as seen in the references), but feel free to deviate from this if you find that another color looks better. As for size, despite being based off a chick, I'd ideally have it fill most the vxace 32x32 size sprite (if your not sure what I mean by this, I mean that I don't want it to be tiny like the RTP slime). Other than that, I'm not quite sure how to explain this, but I want it to look "mascot-y". I really don't know how to put it into words, but take a look at the references below. Something about them just screams "mascot". Perhaps it's their relative simplicity?

References: I'm looking to make something similar to a Rappy from Phantasy Star. They're these cute little bird creatures. Here's a few reference pictures of the little cuties. As a note, the first three are baby rappies, while the last image is the grown-up variation, which I thought I'd toss in for reference.






As a note, I'm not necessarily looking to outright copy it. I'm really open to suggestions on appearance, as I'm not quite sure what all would transfer well into an Ace size sprite.

Thank you!

What do you think of something like this? (I borrowed his hair/feather tuft from one of the characters in Actor5.)

If you're happy with the general look, I'll try to finish the other directions this weekend.

Hey, thanks for helping out with my request! :)

I'm really liking the design so far. The only thing I really want to point out is the head. Something about it just strikes me as a little bit too human-like. (which makes sense, seeing as the head is from a human). I'm not quite sure what i'd say to change it, though. Perhaps the hair?

Also, since you'll be doing the back/side soon, can I put in a little request. I think it'd be really cute if it had a little duck-tail ruffle.

I'm afraid I overestimated my amount of free time, so sorry it's taking a bit longer than expected :kaoswt: I'm still working on the front sprite - I changed the head shape, gave it only two feathers sticking up, and experimented a bit with accessories to make it look more "mascot-y". These are the designs I have so far (too lazy to export the animation...):

And yes, I'll include a cute duck-tail once I get to the sideview :smile:

Oh my goodness, they're adorable! :kaoluv:

They look a lot more natural now, and I love the cute little accessories!

Small rant: While using SRD Hud maker for a battle hud, I typed in the wrong script call and got an error, but then forgot to delete the piece that caused the error before closed the Hud maker and hit F5 to restart the game. Now everytime I engage in a battle my game crashes...

Would Jump into Javascript be best off continuing to break down the MV core files, or would people prefer a quick detour to cover everything that's changed in the core from MV to MZ?
Not going to lie... PIXI Particles make fantastic graphics... But predicting the hitbox of something with a "fixed size" but whose graphics can stick out past that, is quite challenging. :kaoswt:
