Ok Sol, scroll back up and look what you quoted, i NEVER said anything about the "stature" of Helm, Feron said that and also the rest you replied to was towards what Feron said.

What I said, and i will rephrase it here, just copying a style, no matter if it is a choice, does not make you grow as an artist.

And I tell you this Sol, if you keep being this impolite for no reason whatsoever or bash on people who did not even say what you address them for than your stay on this board wont be a long one.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Clearly, this business has gotten out of hand. Do I appreciate help? Of course I do. Do I always listen to the aforementioned help, no. Certainly, though, not a soul among us can say they always listen to what people say, do, recommend, suggest against, or whatever the case may be when they offer their help. Are they good edits? Sure. Of course. Do I disagree with parts of them? We wouldn't be carrying on like this if I didn't. I'm sure they'd work perfectly with the edits you've done for some folks (as members of this forum have pointed out), but I'm just not down with the whole sharing of palette objects by every element of the character's design. Not sure if it's trying to be alternate palette friendly or what. And yes, I do love CvS sprites. For the record. I've never been a big fan of that whole mostly desaturated palette thing you seem to have going on. I can't please everyone, and I'm not going to try. That would be attempting the impossible. HOWEVER, I am willing to compromise. So... that being said, Helm, I apologize for not seeming appreciative. That's not the case. I guess I'm just not used to seeing my stuff get drastic overhauls and venture in an entirely different direction than what I wanted to take it in.

Long-winded version done, breakdown rapidly approaching. Approaching like the bosses in Darius. Yeah, we've gotten off on the wrong foot. Helm, Feron, everyone else who has critiqued to some degree or another... help a brother out. Whatever stubborn-ness I had in my system is gone. Honest injun.

And uh... refer to the disclaimers before interviews with film makers and whatnot before you read Sol's post. You know... the one about how the views and ideas contained are not necessarily shared by <such and such>. Judas = such and such, in this case.

ptoing: I made the appropriate edit in regards to that. You should read my edit. And dont start the childish "I'll get you banned" threats. I'm here, we are discussing this, and thats that. While the remark about you and the stature reply was off, the rest of what I said still stands.

Helm: Also, regarding him "brushing" off the edit, he took to heart most of what you said, and even made his own alterations here and there. He did state however that he didnt want to compromise hi style, and thats it.

EDIT: Well, thats that.

Judas, I read you. No worries. Sorry if I seemed judgemental as well. Let's carry on.

Sol: Keeping the forum going as it should is not childish business. If you insult people, you'll get warned, you'll get warned, you'll get warned. And then you'll get banned. You were insulting people, you got your first warning.

Yes, judas edited his pieces after my posts, which is why I made a second edit after the first.

edit: oh and for clarification

I tried to keep this in mind, as I guessed, so there's not much palette sharing. And I didn't mess with your saturation to any degree, just some hue shifting. Most of my editing in this thread was, and still is about anatomy, structure and light more than specialist tricks like palette unity.

well sol you prolly made that edit when i was posting and it was not there when i started writing and i could not be arsed to heed the other message warning.
if you wanna talk further about this, pm me.

I am not being childish, just saying that we have a strike system here and if you keep being impolite like this than that's that.
I am just asking for good behaviour and I am not trying to opress anyone, but we have rules, I agree to them and i am here to keep them up.

Now everyone cool down or I will lock this thread, the people who this i about have resolved and there is no need to brag on about this.
Keep it on the pixelcritique not bashing.

The last edit I made to that post was six minutes after your last post, in response to your last post. The first initial edit however, was in fact, prior to your last post. Theres a way to check that using the forum settings, if you so in fact deem me lying.

Anyway, I'm not here to shake things up. I merely saw something I felt needed adressing, from my view.

Judas, you've got a really nice set of sprites there now. Would look ace in a game. I especially like the lady in red, she looks ubercool. Are you going to animate them?

More editing done, as per Helm's suggestions, Camus (or whatever the hell name he goes by this week! =P)'s's's's suggestions over at PCS, and a couple of other sources of input, as well as a little experimentation of my own. Anatomy hasn't changed much, because I can't get that leg looking right any other way. It's not like I'm done with this thing anyhow, so...maybe one day! Also, to hell with secondary light sources. I hate you, latex. No, that's a lie. I'm sorry, old buddy.

Larwick: If I were less lazy, sure. I'd like to animate them, but I'm not sure I have the motivation. This tablet is working out, though, so we'll see.

Edit: Changes on the legs. I tried to make it more like Helm suggested, as far as the curve goes. Sup?

WOAH - Lets take  a time out.  I didnt mean to cause this many posts on a totally irrelevant subject.  I guess it mainly does come down to style, and therefore personal preference.  My bad.  I didnt mean to be confrontational, just some advice.  And Sol WTF do you purposefully try and cause trouble about things that dont concern you?

I think the latest edit is great - looks a lot better.  Reading up i never commented on how good i thought the first 2 were.  I think the one with the giant hand is a great character and you pulled it off rather well.

It did concern me. I was concerned. I also didnt like the piggybacking you proceeded to do. No apology there. Also, its over and done with. Leave it at that.
