Pillow shading was totally in back then

Oh yeah, I've got some terrible ones left.

I even put them all in a RAR. It saves no space, but they're out of sight unless I get adventurous.

You think that's bad? I still have most of the old HDDs that stuff was originally on, just in case. I really need an external IDE reader so I can finally see if they still function and recover ancient docs.

Who knows, maybe one has the DS background cached still Wink

Wait, Edger, I think that background you linked before was just the background SMX used on Sprite HQ.

Also, pillow shading is just the worst. I don't even do sprite work anywhere near as much as I did back then, but I know to not do pillow shading.

Yeah, that's from SMX. But there was a theme on DS that used it. Or here.

There is nothing sexier than esoteric hoards of pointless data... Why am I not sure if I'm joking?

Esoteric hoards of pointless data? Where. That's like most of my life. Let me at it.

I don't want to imagine what else you have, Edger. Somehow it terrifies me.

General rule is if you're not afraid you aren't paying close enough attention, so good move.

Like almost every day I come on here and delete threads that are like

"I'll be back tomorrow"

"guys i need a sprite"

*insert any isao thread here*

and it's so comforting

Sounds pretty cathartic, Hollow.

As for all the pointless data... Honestly, I was surprised anyone had held onto those old sprites I did. I mean, I know I did but the fact that someone else did still shocks me. Feels kinda surreal.

Also, made an update the other day. About 3/5ths of the comic are out now if you wanna check it out. Probably does a lot better in giving an idea of things now.

Eh, history, even pointless history, is fun to look at.

Never know when you'll need to blackmail someone, and what's more embarrassing than things we did in our youth?

So took me a while to get back here (A year? Holy fuck, what's wrong with me?)... I gotta say, Edgar, I'm now sort of glad you had those old sprites. It's given me something to compare my current pixel art skills against.

Case in point, I decided to make an example of that old "Zenkai" character, who I renamed at one point to Leon. This sprite is almost entirely from scratch with only the head being from an existing sprite (though it's also modified). I also only put about 2-3 hours max, so I know I could fix a lot of stuff on it still.
