Portrait:
I actually started my portrait on my family's ancient imac, with a sweet 5-button mouse at my disposal.  I was photoshopping with power!  The laptop I'm renting from my college is hundreds of times sweeter, but I have no mouse any more.  All I did was touch up some details and colors on the laptop (because the imac's monitor is so broken no amount of calibration could save it).  And speaking of calibration: I hate using lcd monitors.  Colors..... shifting.... RRGGH!

I don't know what to do with the hair:  It's always been one of my weakest areas.

Running/ jumping/ breathing animation:
If I get around changing the running animation, I might change the leaning position, and the bobbing of his pompadour if it looks good.  The running in the same place is intentional: I really hate it in videogames when my character stops running and he snaps into an entirely different area of the 32x32 / 64x64 rectangle to which he's assigned.  I might exaggerate the up/down motion as well.

Thanks for the jumping advice, lief.  I knew something was wrong with it, I didn't know exactly what.

The top pixels of the head in the breathing animation are also supposed to be that way.  I was trying... for lack of a better term, antialiased movement.


Helm: If I post all my old stuff, will you post your old flashback critique? eh?

I'm afraid that's lost in the bowels of internet infinity. But please please do and say I did as well.

aaaagh what happened to my hosting?

Once I find some hosting that doesn't suck, I'll post some stuff.

edit:
Oh, look, they're back.

all free hosting services suck.  It's a fact.  it's entirely understandable, though.

Almost everything I host is through ImageShack because I hate logging into things.  Including my avatar, sig, and everything else I do.
Proud to be a BMS team:

Imageshack = really really good!
But, there's also Gazler.
www.gazler.com

It's back up, if you didn't know. And it's still awesome. You have to let a mod validate your images now, so that's a bit of a bummer for us "I made something and want to show it off nooow!!" people, but, there's plenty of mods around, me included. You'll never have to wait more than an hour or two. If you're lucky, it'll be a minute.
