    Hey, maybe you'd be interested in participating in this voting thread? http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=238862&page=1#

    I've been meaning to try, but I got a lil tired trying to pick my favorites, haha...

    Its alright, also that avatar thing you did with platina caught me off guard. I saw it and thought "cloud?" but then saw Platina's name and was like "oooh I see"

    on 03 January 2019

    Yeah, it caught me by surprise as well. I didn't even know he was going to do it xD

    This one is really nice.

    Well done.

    Thanks! Looking at it now, I kinda hate it... : T

    Still looks good to me.

    I love your avatar.

    Thanks! :D I had a lot of fun drawing this, and I love the character as well.

    She's looking like a cousin of mine in this avy. xD

    Oh wow, and here I was just trying to do my character in the DBZ style, haha xD That's cool though.

    on 31 March 2018

    Yeah! haha

    Btw, is this a new character of yours in the new avy?

    on 01 April 2018

    Oh no, it's a favorite character of mine from Fire Emblem, but in a spring outfit from the mobile game. I just felt like drawing it, haha.

    So about fe:h that new tyoe or atleast i assume it is looks chaotic

    Yeah, it's a new mode. A new update dropped yesterday, which also included blessed battles as well. Quite a bit of new stuff to do now in the game.

    Cool. You have a Pop Team Epic style avatar.

    Haha, yeah, I do. It's a pretty fun, interesting anime.

    Sorry, I don't think I will this time. I've already missed out on a lot of it, and I only sign on for a lil bit too D:

    its fine (but can you participate in the voting game I have next, just 1 vote a day, gonna start it 2 weeks after this elim game ends once I bother a mod about it)

    Oh, a 1 a day would work for me~

    For those who liked the last avi, sorry. I ruined it...

    I like this one.
    Good job.

    on 07 February 2018

    Thanks! I figured people would hate this anime, since it's very random. Who's your character? I notice you use her a lot as your avi, haha.

    on 07 February 2018

    Ai Enma, from Jigoku Shōjo.
    What inspired you to make this new avatar?

    Also:
    With small images like this one, PNGs can often produce smaller file-sizes (when compared to JPEGs).
    With better image quality too.

    on 07 February 2018

    Oh, I didn't realize I've been saving these as jpeg. I usually do PNGs, I'll need to fix this one.

    Also, I been watching Pop Team Epic and thought it would be funny to do my character in that style. I've been doing it with other characters, haha.

    I've seen Hell Girl before on manga sites. I take it you really like the character? :D

    on 07 February 2018

    Just note: it is unwise to save a lossy file with lossless compression.
    Ergo, don't save JPEGs as PNGs, please.

    I think the drawing turned out really nice, good job.

    I have a big folder of Ai fanart.
    Each image should work well as an avatar.
    So I am set for a long time, on the avatar front.

    on 13 February 2018

    Well, whoops. I guess when I scanned it, it saved as a JPEG... I'll need to change it to PNG on my future pics..

    I noticed that the gifs in your signature, have potentially been scaled in a manor that produces artifacts.

    https://image.ibb.co/gq2AUw/sprite.png



    To avoid this from happening in the future, I recommend setting scale to box.



    For example, I redrew and animated one of your sprites:

    Before scaling:

    https://image.ibb.co/gGcNbb/Result.gif



    After scaling:

    https://image.ibb.co/eWAppw/Result_scaled.gif

    Thanks for the tips on my gifs! Do I just replace my old ones with this scaled one? How do I do that myself?

    on 09 January 2018

    You're alive!

    The Result_scaled.gif should be a plug and play type thing.

    To get the pixel perfect, low res version (the one I used to make the high res gif) I had to redraw the sprite.
    Meaning: I had your gif on one monitor, and Krita on another.
    I cross referenced the colours afterwards, so don't worry about that.

    The only differences are the white and black pixels.
    Black is blacker and white is whiter.

    I cannot remember if I scaled the gif after making it, or if I scaled both sprites and made a gif out of that.
    Bare in mind this was about a month ago.

    To scale a sprite in Krita:
    Ctrl + Alt + i
    (or go to "image" (top menu), then "scale image to new size").

    Just below the resolution: is a drop-down labeled "Filter".
    You want to ensure that is set to "Box".
    Box will ensure, pixels remain pixels when scaled.

    When scaling the sprite, make sure to keep everything uniform.
    (If you want to scale a 32px wide sprite, scale to 64px, or 128px, ect).
    This should ensure that each scaled pixel is square.

    To avoid doing math whilst working with Krita, the developers give you a few options.

    Option one:
    There are drop-down boxes next to the width and height rows.
    If you switch either the height or width to a percentage (and leave the constrain proportions on), scaling uniformly should be very simple.
    200% scale (32px to 64px),
    400% scale (32px to 128px),
    800% scale (32px to 256px).

    You can use pretty much any multiple of 100 to scale a sprite.
    Think of it this way:
    A 200% scale of a pixel is a 2x2 "pixel".
    So a 300% scale would be a 3x3 pixel, after scaling.
    That works, and looks perfect, and perfectly fine.


    Option two:
    You can, in the text fields for Width and Height: type *2 next to the current number and press enter.
    This will give the expected result.

    https://krita.org/en/
    It is free!
    Fully free!
    And powerful.

    Hopefully: this helped, and I didn't ramble too much.

    If you need more help, I would probably need to know more about the software and workflow you use.

    on 09 January 2018

    That does look fairly complicated... I think maybe I'll stick to my gifs as they are now. Luckily they look small enough that they don't look odd.. @_@

    on 11 January 2018

    The gif I sent you should just work.
    For the rest of them, it does seem like a decent amount of work.

    on 11 January 2018

    Yeah, I'll go ahead and try these new gifs in my sig soon. Thanks for the polish on them :D
