From what I've seen of MV, it appears the battlers fit the style. I think the outlines look fine, except on a couple of the battlers (like the purple worm) it could be blended a little more. Not sure how I feel about the shadows. They make sense with flying enemies, but I'm not sure the ground enemies really need them. At the same time, they do give the images a little more depth. Maybe if the shadows were a little lighter, they might look better...? Overall though, I think these look great. Your skill has certainly evolved quite a bit from your first battlers.

No, it's not blending it needs, it's color.  If it were colored outlines instead of black it would match MV's standard resources better.

I agree, though, Thalzon, you've gotten a lot better at this over all this time.  I think it's time to redraw your avatar. :D

Exactly! (on the subject of the outlines)

You're a good man, Thalzon. Keep doing what you do ^_^

Wow! Those sprites are really nice looking!

one question:

How many sprites are u planning to make? As in are you going to cover only the basic enemies or are you going to sprite bosses and more area specific enemies for snowy areas / deserts etc. as well later on?

Currently I'm going by a rough "environment" concept. These enemies all belong to the forest environment. Eventually I'll get to desert, mountain, plains, snow, beach, castle, graveyard, etc.

@Sharm: I tried experimenting with non-black outlines, but in my opinion the black looks best. And yeah, new avatar.... eventually.

This is actually really exciting. MV has built in battlers that I really enjoy, but your art style is absolutely beautiful. All of these enemies look really natural! I'm excited to see how many different creatures you're able to push out, and how many different zones your represent. If you do end up showcasing all of the areas I intend for my game, I just may see about using these and working with you about credits and such commercially.

Very nice work. Gotta see how these look on a forest map.

These are amazing! My favorites are the rat and the little mushroom man.

What I don't like about the default MV battlers is that so many of them look like giant bad ass monsters, and boss fights, that its hard to find a few smaller baddies to have the player encounter that still match the theme of the map. Your works seems like its able to fill that gap perfectly. And the black outline looks perfect, I think.

Thank you for your work!

These are fabulous. I can't wait to see more!!


P.S. Your flower is my favorite so far. It's the most fun-looking and I love the colors. More plant battlers!! :D

Thalzon,
These are excellent. Easily your best work (in my view)! Very clean and sharp looking, very professional.
As far as feedback goes, I am not in love with the shadows, but they're ok. Maybe including a shadow and non-shadow version of each when you pack them up? I think it's a good idea. Other than that though, this is a great showing of your talent. I look forward to seeing the rest.

Tyler did come later, but I love his style. I think he does amazing shading (by hand, no less!) and he's definitely an inspiration for this newer set.
Thalzon was a giant before I ever showed up. He has an advantage in working digital. I'm still a paper lover at heart and can't get used to digital imagery.
Again, this set shows off some great talent Thalzon has and I look forward to more!

I think the black outline is a little too harsh, but the rest of the style is really nice. I like them.
Just goes to show you can't please everyone, I was actually thinking I loved the black outline. :)

It's my cute little ghost~
Minecraft Dungeons is a great example of a game that's much simpler than other games in its genre but almost as equally immersive and fun to play. Lotta RPGmaker devs could learn from that lesson.
Well, it's been a while since the last time I came here... Is there a JS scripting FAQ? I'd like to know what it's capable of achieving, and how :rswt
I love the Time Fantasy tiles, but haven't played anything made with it yet. Can anyone recommend me something?
