Personal Quote: "What's the word for when you pester someone so much that it becomes illegal?"
Getting ready for Feral! later this week. Made Frilled Dragon prints. Wanted to do fuzzball stickers, but they would not have been done in time. I've finishes 12 rubber and steel bracelets for the con, and I'm hoping the sturdier, more masculine look will mean they'll sell better than the fancier/more delicate jewellery I had tried to sell in prior years.

I'm very much enjoying the Saturday life drawing sessions that my family's been going to, even if we are sporadic in attendance. It's a good way to work on my art, particularly as I have been rather lax in practicing as of late.

I'm going to move some of my old art into the scraps folder, as it no longer represents the stage my art is at. I figure that way it'll be out of the way, but unlike stored deviations will still be available to look at by people who like it or are wondering what my artistic history has been like.

Edit: WOW, have I improved a lot!

how did you make an animated sprite on your ID? it's adorable the way your little sprite walks.

Well, I used a megaman sprite for the base. Heavily edited. My program of choice is Fireworks, which can handle layers and frames but is a bit iffy with remembering colours since it saves thing as PNG. Other programs work too, just make sure they can handle frame-by-frame animation. Anyway, you make each frame of the animation (onionskinning or otherwise reducing the opacity of the previous frame and doing the next one on a new layer is helpful) and get them all lined up on different frames, then fiddle with the timing. When it's to your satisfaction, export as an animated GIF. Voila! Animation! :D

Thanks! I'm quite fond of it, though it's been quite a few years since I made it. I remember being frustrated that there were no walking sprites in Megaman (I'd started spriting via the Bob and George fandom. Megaman was the way to go), nor had any been made by other pixel artists at the time. Running everywhere was stupid, and the sprites for it were ugly as heck anyway. Scratch poses it had to be. Not my area of expertise, but it was good practice and I'm still happy with the results :)

Thanks! And how are you two doing? Was your drive back okay?

once we got out of the rain, it was manic driving out of the park XD  Mostly fine after that, most people didn't go to the dead dog, so we went home early from that.

glad to see you're doing well ^^

We were lucky enough to leave before the rain really hit. Loopy wanted to leave as early as possible so we didn't even stay for the group photo XD
You, too!
