        Yeah FE:A was pretty great, never beat it since I always tried to do all of the child missions and they just wore me down too much but it was definitely enough to get me excited for Fates. +)

        you should ignore the child paralogues and beat the game just once for the story ;__; Either way, I'm glad to find another Awakening fan, though. Do you have a favourite character or pairing ooc?

        I never actually made the backsprite, but I can begin working on it soon and have it done shortly. I'll be sure to update the thread when I finish it.

      Wow, aXl, your Virizion art for the Smogon Facebook page is amazing! I love how you did the perspective and background, and the grass-like rendering on Virizion it's a nice touch as well. :D

      Hey, aXl. Congratulations on the winning sprite set! Are you aiming to make sprite parts for animation?
      1. aXl
        aXl
        Hm, not sure. Never really dabbled much in animation myself, so I'd need to look up some information on it before contributing much. I wouldn't mind learning it though, as its something I've been wanting to learn for awhile now.

        It doesn't have to be actually animated (but I'd love it if you gave it a shot). If you could make separate pieces for the legs, oars, and maybe the neck/head, that would be great. If not, tell me.

      how do you get your sprites in both 1:1 and 2:2 size without distortion?
      1. aXl
        aXl
        In Paint.Net, there's a trick you can do when resizing. Basically, when you select and drag a group of pixels, there's an option called "Quality" on the toolbar at the top of the screen. By default, its set to Bilinear, but you can set it to the second option (Nearest Neighbor) and it instead stretches individual pixels rather than trying to reach a middle ground.

        As an example, here's the same sprite resized using both choices. The left one uses Nearest Neighbor as its quality setting, the right uses Bilinear.

      Those sprites are amazing! I usually graph mine IRL, then put them on the computer. Only good example is in my Sig.

        Thanks for the compliment! In regards to how I do sprites, in the past, I've tended to make sprites by taking a reference material (hand drawn or otherwise) shrinking it down and then essentially pixel-overing it to get the scratch sprite, but as of Mega Gallade, I've started to just eyeball references until it looks right. If you have many sprites, you should consider posting up an art thread so that other artists can give you some advice for the future. +)

      Hey, so you're watching Chuggaaconroy's Xenoblade playthrough, too? Neat! What do you think of the game so far?

        It's pretty solid. I started it on a whim because the Game Grumps weren't playing anything too interesting over Christmas, and I hooked myself after the first few episodes and have been having it on in the background while I sprite since last Tuesday. Needless to say, Im pretty hooked lol.
