Pixel Art / Re: Looking for some help on hair animation.

Cool! maybe try 24 frame...?

...and star sparkle is a bit much maybe; your scene is already plenty busy. One thing i'd try is switching the bling on the book to also 24 frames. I really don't think you need to change anything else; hair looks great!

General Discussion / Not Dead(and i didn't wonder off)
« on: November 15, 2020, 11:07:27 pm »
Hey all, I'm still alive(and i haven't given up on this forum either). In case you were wondering, I had some more psychiatry B***S*** explode on me. The whole thing was totally unexpected and i still feel stuck in the twilight zone. They finally let me out of the hospital, although I had to take a long-acting injection just to get out of there, and now i have this mandatory treatment mumbo jumbo to deal with; at this point my life feels like the Joker movie. I'm really hoping to get this whole pharma/drugs deal straightened out ASAP before they turn me into some sort of medicine-zombie. :blind:

So, long story short, I'd like to do more tiles for HexCorpse4, but i'm not sure how much time i will have now that i am juggling Therapy+Meds on top of all my usual chores for my parents, a very major home renovation project and a backlog of stuff for my LLC. I was sort of looking into figuring out automated editing in gimp, with the intention of taking over Hex4 from Indigo(if that is reasonable), although at the moment i think all this will have to take the back burner. That said, I may still try to polish up some of my tiles more; just waiting for a rainy day.

Stay Well Everybody,

Wow! I don't think it needs any work on the hair...

...perhaps the blinking is too rhythmic(maybe add some filler frames)
I really like it!

not sure if this helps, but this is all i could do in a pinch:


...done entirely with tracing, selections, masks and paint-bucket; sorry in advance if this is unhelpful, gimp was really starting to glitch out on me half way through...

Sorry I posted this in the art board, although i think it belongs here...

Here's one that has sort of snuck up on the American public: RealID.

Sorry for the funny political subject matter, it's just that in our modern technological age, it is important to keep an eye on mantaining important freedoms, lest we lose those freedoms, and bring about the rise of some despotic regime(ruled by androids) D: ??? And for anyone who is too young, or didn't like history class, I'd like to point out that the Nazis(those bad guys who started WW2) made use of special identification markers to help facilitate the atrocities they committed. 

I guess the difference is back then the star was a death sentence, where as now it is a "must have". Still, the new system will create a division between those who are privileged, and those who are not; and all at the cost of privacy, which is a constitutional right last time I checked.

here are some links to the holocaust(for a reminder):
https://www.holocaustcenter.org/visit/library-archive/holocaust-badges/
https://encyclopedia.ushmm.org/content/en/article/jewish-badge-during-the-nazi-era

I would like to point out that there are a number of critics out there who appose this new system of national identification.
Here are a few more links:
Burlington Free Press - DMV embraces Real ID, critics cite privacy concerns(2013)
ACLU: Real ID - turning driver’s licenses into national ID ...tracking, data
Constitutional Alliance - Real ID Exposed: It Is Worse than You Think
...this last one is a pretty extensive rebuttal to the new system, and points out many concerning things like expanded facial recognition, unprecedented & unconstitutional level of DHS authority, new Federally interlinked DMV databases, new identity theft risks, non encrypted machine readable metadata, international sharing of biometrics, FBI's new world’s largest biometric database...
...you should be very concerned!

So that brings me to my mockup:
RGB:           ...and 16 Color:
also, heres a link to the imgur page: https://imgur.com/a/C85CY0W

...and sorry, it's not really pixel art yet; and this isn't really even the right format yet; I was thinking of making something more similar to what the actual ID card will look like. ...And I'm not yet sure about canvas size, although it's my opinion that, when done properly, pixel art looks good at both small and large scales, and so I think, in the end, size should probably be limited by readability of the smallest font.

Anyway, I just wanted to start this thread, rather than taking a deep dive all on my own, and having it flop. Feel free to post if this sort of thing sounds interesting to you. Important note: the mockup i made is square where as a Real ID card is rectangular. Also, my mockup is just a quick RGB collage, although i think with the right palette, it could really catch on the eye(as well as be easily reproducible).

So anyway, here is my challenge to anyone who will take it:
Create an ID card for one of the 50 states, including on it one of the new emblems signifying Real ID compliance, and put a picture of a cow on the card in place of the portrait.

IMPORTANT: Don't use any real info inside your finished work!

Also, for extra points you may try to incorporate the one of the grades of beef into your design:
Prime, Choice, Select, Standard, Commercial, Utility, Cutter, Canner

...thats it!  ...and have fun painting cows!

And don't let me forget, here are the official emblems:


and here are some official sample IDs(from the DHSgov website):

hey, just a small suggestion: it helps to link the file in an image, like this:

...so you can zoom it in the browser!(click-to-zoom-in, shift+click-to-zoom-out)
Nice Work! ...clean lines! :P

...and are we not requiring new users to introduce themselves anymore?

My Big Apologies! I did not mean to imply you Chonky. although if you had seen the other thread you would understand.

...also, anyone have any thoughts on WebP?
supposedly it can be lossless. ...does that make it safe for pixelart?

you could try doing a tile for the hex corpse. it has really helped me figure stuff out. what software are you using?

...also, if you decide to work on Hex4, note it is technically "on pause"; therefore you should read through to the end of the thread before picking a tile.

...also don't show anyone your full tile. ...except Indigo of course.
