    Just reiterating what i have said in the chat; I will be posting the sprite related artwork in the coming weeks or so... give me sometime. And you absolutely do not have to worry about crashes. Our working folders are stored on Dropbox.com, they even keep previous versions of files on their servers. In fact, I can even access them via my iPhone. If that's not enough, I also have personal backups in my company gmail. I will give out dropbox sharing access to the team in the future.

    @Zozma: Agrias and Frimelda.

    I prefer a rounder face by far... Fixed the eye, the gray pixel right under the eye doesn't look good.

    I'm still skeptical about the shading on the lower part of her face, but I don't know what to do with it myself.

    Dang, her eye is soo dark, but lightening it up would mess the clothes I suppose. Any idea how to make it lighter?

    They could be brown i suppose. But heck she is a blue mage and it's not like blue eyes is some odd mutation. I've actully heard some bs at a college anthropology lecture that blue eyes are a mutation. I just double face~palmed hard. (Then a beautiful mutation it is... idiots)

    This was egregiously tedious both of us spent a long time on it. It's now 100 percent unless R999 decides to redo the hair a 3rd time.
    (oh, update,     I didn't do the water frames. Just in case.  If we change the hair again that would be an extra hour doing water frames twice..so it's 99.7 percent done I suppose)

    the portrait looks great too, i think just like the blue eyes, the lightest shade for them is too dark.. besides that they look nice

    I lightened the 2nd shade of blue as suggested on the bluemage.

    Hmm, I see my talk with R resulted positively, I can see one more shade on his white trim, but it is still looking strange, mind sending me the BMP? I will fix it somehow, no worries, I do not desire credits, I am here to polish sprites up, just thought I will say it, if that is your concern. Portrait looks good, one thing though, I think his chin and neck are too dark, I understand that he has black armor and all, but it is still too dark. Warlock Female's neck for example is lightly shaded, and looks much more FFT-like, and I have one question: How many shades he have on armor? Looks like 3, this is a bit small amount for that. Oh, and his mouth is too dark, use lighter shades.

    Heh, Lijj improved a lot since that first Terra attempt xD

    And you might be interested in this site, R. Some great portraits are here, but there are also some bad ones. Scroll down to see them:

    @Kage: I seen that site before from the spriting forum. I took a look at it again just now again, and found some stuff that I might use. Some of them does indeed look decent, with enough tweaks and touch ups.

    Nah, I do not recommend tweaking them, most of them(if not all) were posted as jpg, their quality is quite messed up. Though you can try if you want.

    I probably work in a different than you do. All I need is a concept picture to draw a sprite (by just looking at it to see patterns used, colors used, shading used, etc). By tweaking, I mean just changing a few bits and pieces from their concept / prototype. 16 colors is usually more than sufficient for most things, especially for non-generic characters (so you the hair colors can be freed and or shared elsewhere).

    You want to save one of those portraits and tweak them? That is how most understand tweaking things, haha. What you want to do is simply lookin at it and get ideas from it. Anyway, good luck with that.

    Yeah I had zero pixel exp. haha. I was sad when Zodiac turned that 1st Terra down. But I'm glad I had to redo it now. For the practice
    Kage you can play with the Bmp I'll pm it to you.
    hmm Thinking about Lich or Tiamat next
    Voldemort: Just making so many... each time I learn new tricks. I credit practice and criticism. I mean in the art scene people are too polite (a lot of "artists" get away with such crap) it's easier for one to crit pixels I guess.
