White, Blue and Green Chocobo



Cactuar version 1

I kinda already know whats wrong with version 1 Cactuar, so I don't need crits on this one, but I will need crits on version 2. Here is what I have done so far (and please note I am gonna make a brand new dead frame):

Ever consider giving these poor deprived chocobos a proper beak?

I did these a long time ago, but never really finished.

I was wondering how you oriented the two frame run over the five frame cycle.. simpler than I thought; very interesting.
Thanks for posting here.
Can you make version two less saturated? Especially the portrait.


I really like the blueish-green and gray together on the 3rd palette of the chocobos.

I'm sorry Vanya, but how are those beaks proper?

Chicken: Brown feathers, brown beak


Chicken: Black feather, black beak


Ostrich: Black feathers, black beak


Cardinal: Mostly red feathers, red beak


In chicken, feather pigmentation is generally revelant of beak, legs and egg pigmentation as well. The only exception I can think of are white chicken where most races (but not all) will have yellow beaks instead of white. Personally I believe they are giant chickens, but if you think they're ostriches, the same logic applies. Some bird types like eagles will always have a yellow beak, but birds having yellow beaks is a stereotype which is false most of the time. Any human made bird looking product tends to have yellowish beaks for some reason. You could argue a lot of beaks have a yellowish tone but the feather colour to the beak is predominant.

Love what you're seeing? https://supportus.ffhacktics.com/ 💜 it's really appreciated

Anything is possible as long as it is within the hardware's limits. (ie. disc space, RAM, Video RAM, processor, etc.)

Here only the black and green chocobos have a colored beak, but I think the ancient classic chocobos from like the SNES era had different colored beaks that did not match their feathers. I actually personally like the beaks to be the same color as the overall bird, I'm guessing Xif too... Your chocobos do in fact look interesting though Vanya, I could give it a shot. Here are some more classic based ones:



Edit: Any specific sprites you have in mind Mando? Right now my life is extremely busy but thanks to Raven I finally learned how to use the Palette Editor (which I never could figure out before for some reason) so I'm really enjoying recoloring sprites, and it doesn't take too long...

Don't take my use of the word proper so literally. I meant proper as in having a distinguishable beak at all as opposed to the FFT way of not bothering to differentiate it with even so much as a line to show where the feathers end. And I never said mine were proper. My bad if I seemed to be imply that that were. <3

@Jon: Thanks. :)
Those aren't the only ones I did I have a whole crapload based on the original palettes from all the old games directly. I can post them on my deviantART account if you want to see them.

EDIT: In fact, I think I'm going to ga ahead and do that anyway. I should put as much of my work up there as possible.

LOL LOVE BOO BERRY! is there a finished sheet for him somewhere or was it just those couple frames?
I will show you the power of SARDIIIIINES!!!!

Jon

Wow, not bad at all Vanya! I wonder if people here are interested in recolored sprites, I certainly am! I like the Hydras strangely the best, the Ghost called Boo Berry is cool too but I don't know where that's from...

The second sheet is FF 7 Chocobos! These are by far the coolest imho. You're choice of colors are like exactly like the ones in 7. Only 2 small nit picks, the first regular chocobo looks somehow actually bland and the black chocobo could be slightly darker...other than that awesome! :mrgreen:

If only there was some Chocobo Ranch and chocobo raising going on in FFT...not just plop, egg, random bird... :/
There ain't no gettin' offa this train we on!

Boo berry is a cereal, along with frankenberry and count chocula.
I will show you the power of SARDIIIIINES!!!!

Elric

Jon, I really like those chocobo colors, I may some use for those :D

Its attached now, yeah didn't realize that every time you simply upload a BMP to Photobucket it becomes a JPEG...

Could you make the white chocobo a little less gray?


Okay, next post/edit will be a less gray, whiter version...should be easy enough...

Haha, I see...


EDIT: Now you can compare the newer, whiter Chocobo to the older one and pick whichever one you like better. I honestly like the older sprites colors better (the darker whites and grays) but the new portrait is more accurate. :mrgreen:

Jon

Double post!!

I took Vanya's Black Chocobo and I changed its beak around so it looks more like a full beak and a little less like I guess a parrot's. I think that the original one looked almost as if it didn't have a lower beak and just went into its feather colors. Dunno, you guys decide.

GeneralStrife

huh. I think I like it, but it's weirding me out just because I think we are so used to a seamless beak area.

Kagebunji

I like it, looks more proffesional than the old one. Though it does look weird, given how FFT beaks were all same color with body.
