 :'( :0# !yus!

what a freekin mess.... sometimes you just wanna shake some of these production decisions...

Boss: "I know what we'll do... we'll do 3d renders... that'll make it look new enough the nintendo DEE ESS!..." :D
2D Pixel Artist: <Thinks> "no...it'll make it look crap..." :'(
3D Artist: "Great Idea Boss... I'll get right on it" :D
2D Pixel Artist:  "::)"

Few weeks later...
3D Artist: "Say, 2D, I need a little help over here... :B
2D Artist: "yeah wassup 3D...?" :hehe:
3D Artist: "I got everything modelled and rendered and it looks great!"
2D Artist: <thinks> "yeah reet"
3D Artist: "thing is, when I render them to that pink mask background your so fond of all I get is these weird purply pixels around the edge of the sprites? What should I do?" :0'
2D Artist: <thinks> "drop the whole the 3dRender idea and go 2dpixel push where you can actually have control of your pixel placement and color choices at such a low level and not have to resort to the CPU deciding things for you like it's gonna know best...?" <Sez> "er... I'm stumped 3D... go ask the boss" :hehe:

few minutes later...
Boss: "WOW! Those big renders are looking great 3D...! good job there... but those small ones are a bit rough? and what's with the purple haze around the edge of them?";D
3d Artist explains...
Boss: "OK, hows about this... render them to a black background, that way you get rid of that purple haze...!"
3d Artist: "OK, but what about the transparancy?" ;D
Boss: "That's easy... just photoshop it!" ;D
2d Artist: "huh?" :huh:
Boss: "Yeah! Photoshop it... and... stick a black outline on them... it'll look great... make them standout loads... Brilliant stuff there 3D..."  :D (walks off pleased with himself)
2d Artist: :-\ <thinks> "genius" :'(
3d Artist: "Great... I can do that with a 1 pixel Stroke in Photoshop with a macro function and batch process the whole lot... thanks to boss I can rest easy at night!"
2d Artist: <Thinks> "yet another classic title given the hack it slap it treatment..." <Sez> "I'll get my coat" :sigh:

Sad, but true!

I think Advance Wars 2 DS goes to a similar way  :(


(Yeah, jpg, but I didn't find anything else)

I think, they call the new style modern/adult/realistic/enlargetargetgroup/makemoremoney/getridofkiddyimage/somewhat..

apparently if you see her spinning clockwise, you are right brained and apparently more creative.
anticlockwise, left brained, more logical...

can anyone see her spinning anticlockwise?
I know how I should be able to do it, but I can't..
because how her head is leaning into a clockwise spin, her shoulder follows her hand etc, I just can't read it any other way

I can make her spin whichever direction I want.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.

Look at her shadow for a little then look up. You'll she her as going anti-clockwise then... on a very chaotic axis.
