Re: I hate iso

the good news is that you tend to be off by only two or three pixels in any direction.  the bas news is that nearly everything is off by this much, and for something like a hand, or a breast, or an eye, or a foot, two or three pixels is about 40-50% off.

here's a quick large-scale edit :



basically the red lines are measurements, and you got the knees right!  :y:

Iso is hard if you aren't invested.  If i make any suggestions, it's not to change the piece since they are all in the same not-really-2:1-more-like-3:1 perspective, it would be to change the title of this thread.  you'll never make anything work if the first thing you do is say that you hate it.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Okay, sorry for the lack of updates.
I released an entire forum for this project.
(I made a crappy FFT type logo I was lazy)
http://tto.siteburg.com/forums/index.php
Go here if you want updates on the progress of the game.


I tried to re-do them accordingly, made their heads smaller fixed the arm on the right.
Next up... Skin palettes, little help guys?
I think the negro isn't dark enough.

Also the ring is going to be a stand type thing that each unit will go on top of.
It's color will represent the units class, or an icon on them, iunno yet.

Class stands for each unit

Sword, Shield, Target, Spear, Skull, Music note, Wrench, Bong

In the latest one his right leg (our left) seems to be broken and disproportionate after you changed the angle of his upper body. The shading and pose is great, but its the perspective that needs a little work.


I'd give it an edit but id either screw it up or make myself look like an idiot. Plus its late.

Do you call caucasian people "blanca" because they aren't the color white? Dude, "negro" means "black" in Spanish. In English vernacular, the word has only ever been used to refer a person of African descent. However, the term is very outdated, and politically incorrect. I wouldn't call your usage racist, just ignorant....

Anyway Souly, you "borrowed" almost all of my original pixels for the female's torso.... I'd appreciate if you took a whack at it yourself.

negro is not only spanish for black, but it means black in most latin decendent languagues. in fact, the usage of the term "negeroid" has been used to describe the common physical characteristics of african decendent people. the same way caucasian means white. black people are not only from africa the same way black people arent only from europe. Negro has got a racist reputation because it has been used racistly. to me "nigger" isnt a racist word, because the people I hear sayin it are black comediants, and they actually make it sound super cool. I think its all about context. and i'm guessing no one here was in to offending anyone else.

anyway, the black couple looks way too saturated. specially on the highlights. you can leave some saturation on the midtons, for a warm skin look
Image size doesn't matter! It's what you do with your pixels that counts!

Kazuya Mochu, if you don't take issue with anything that's been said, why post that first paragraph?? Since you brought it up, whether you find it offensive or not, the word "ni**er" was originally popularized in this country with a racist agenda. If you're a fan of black comedy, I'd think you'd be aware of the difference between that word and "nigga." Personally, I don't even feel qualified to use that word though, since I'm not black myself and thus have never been a susceptible target of the original slur. IN ANY CASE, this is NOT an appropriate forum for an open-ended discussion about racist terminology!

Sorry, everyone else.... GETTING BACK ON TRACK:

Souly: The skin tone of the 3rd from the left pair is really desaturated. Also, the contrast on the 4th pair is really low.
