Great idea, but holy moses it takes me 30 minutes just to figure out what palette I want!

There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Guys, i love this idea so much. i learned a fair amount from watching Helm's vid aswel, including that that colour editing thingey is utterly amazing.  :lol:

I'm definetely going to give it a go, although i use MSPaint usually, so it may take some time... heheh  :-\

That is quite nifty.  I learned several things from watching that video, not least that MSPaint sucks even more than I though and I should stop being lazy and get something else :P

 !yus! Goddammit... i just started it, about 10 minutes in i realised i couldnt edit colours on mspaint because the recording thing disables double-click, and so i tried to the shortcut for pause, then after i pressed it i realised that was the one for cancel...

Owel, i'll try again and finish that sprite some other time. Pre-defined palette seems like the way for me to go.

 !yus! Goddammit... (yeah, ditto) Stupid IDraw decided to have a DIB Copy Failure. Which seems to happen quite a bit. Wasn't that great of a sprite anyways, but it sure was annoying.

I'm gonna try the shaping-> lines method soon. Seems that it's where all the cool cats are.

just found and tried AviScreen Classic. It's free and it works.

Here's my video. I think it's alright considering I had no idea what the black blob was going to be at first.

Some of it was cropped a bit because of the settings I used, should have tested first. :/ The video is about 12 minutes long in doubled speed. I zipped it because the server doesn't allow avi files to be uploaded.

If we get a good number of these, we'll set them up serverside on pixelation.

EDIT: Evil, you process is pretty solid. These are my comments:

Don't dither until you have all the shades you'll be using in there, otherwise you'll end up replacing the dither again later.

Start with more anatomically and volumetrically investigated designs. You can pixel well, time to step it up subject-matter-wise, I think.

Try shading different textures, more porous, hairs, less shiny luminescent highlight, as it seems you've done that a lot.

Good usage of Pro Motion for the most part. Similar to mine, so I can't rightly critique :P

Not a lot of indecisiveness, mouse always moving, not a lot of errors or backtracking.

Use the preview window instead of zooming in and out all the time, why not?
