@Midnight Thunderboy:

That looks a LOT better, actually. like just removing the antennae makes his whole look feel a lot more cohesive - and the overalls look a lot more like regular clothes now. good work!!

the shading on the robots overalls looks sort of like its plush??? like it doesnt look like real clothing. and i think that maybe your spiny dude and your Whatever The Fuck That Guy Is could use more defined necks, because it looks sort of goofy with their more human-esque bodies, unlike the cartoonish proportions of most sonic sprites.

i love the shading on your spiny guy so much, it looks SO good just basically everywhere, and i really feel a lot of personality from the design overall. I think the design of your Whatever The Fuck That Guy Is is a little cluttered on the head, but it doesn't look _bad_ in the slightest, he's just got a lot going on up there. oh, the bandana on your robot also looks super good.

as always, keep up the good work my dude
So, first off, still absolutely hate the new site layout.

Secondly, I would really like some constructive criticism for this - I'd like to make a new fursona sprite for myself because I'm a disgusting, garbage woman furry, and I love how any pseudo-Genesis style looks(it's also one of my favourite styles to do just overall). So, I made this, but something about it just feels *super* off and I thought maybe some extra eyes could help me figure out what it is so I can fix it?

In the meantime I'll progress more on the actual design. Hopefully. Right now I've just got this damn head.

EDIT: Disregard that last bit, i fixed up a body for her. now shes got that most important addition of *tiddies*

anyway, it's all entirely custom. i was just edit some hands onto her from another genesis sprite, but i couldnt find anything that fit so i just said fuck it and did my Best.
i think that the two-shade approach doesn't really work well here? Or at least in the way you've applied it. In the way that you've done it here, the whole sprite looks very flat and the shading looks awkward in places because of that lack of depth.

On the actual shading of it: Even if you're still using the two-shade style, i think you need to more liberally apply the secondary shade. As it is, the light source looks like its sort of coming from a big ball of light *right* next to their head. The band around their hat being, like, significantly more intricate with it's shading also looks weird.

I think there's a lot of character to this design, I think if you maybe did it in a style that allowed you to put more depth into it - maybe make it slightly larger as well - it'd look fantastic. I'm also just a sucker for black and blue colour schemes, and yellow eyes.

Keep up the good work!
are my constant disappearance and reappearances fucking with your sense of object permanence because that sure as fuck is the plan

ANYWAY, here's a revamp of a 10+ year old flareon gijinka because i am an unstoppable force of nature and nothing can keep me from revisiting the same group of old OCs every few months
this new site layout literally makes me want to kill myself every second i look at it

take this furry bullshit
abt five years ago I made a fucking harem anime story and now here they are again, the fruits of my labour, except now theyre all gay
@Shakes: while I definitely agree on the small details(what can I say, ivy demanded the sprite had an aloha print shirt) not going over well on sprites of this size, i'm ngl I really cannot see the pillowshading on the hair.
I cant really tell where your lightsource is. I can see top left, top right, but also directly right as well. and the stance is a bit...awkward, like the arms held out way, way to the side like that. i'd also suggest making the lightest shades of blue and red on the shirt a tad brighter, bc as it is now they blend into the second shades and look too dull.

I dyed my hair recently + I haven't used this style in a long time = new pixelself yeahhhhhhhh
it's been a while since I've done a real pixelself - one of literally just myself. the last few that ive done have always been, like, me summoning ghosts or being an evil queen or some shit??? and like yeah that's *me* but not actually me

being an evil queen speaks to my fucking soul but, yknow, no legitimate crown on my head here, so

anyyywayyyyy I hadn't used this pixel style for a while so I figured id go with it, and since id just dyed my hair I figured I was in need of a new pixelself
@kwane: as many times as it takes

this isn't even my final form
The shaping and shading of the pants looks a bit stiff? Kind of like they're made out of plastic. Other than that, very nice, I especially like the weapon.
something I started working on and then stopped caring about. I need to make another pixelself at some point lmao
lets see how long me being active on SJ lasts this time around

was fooling around with my old pokemon PAs, decided to make a novice trainer one for myself.
here's something I started back before I lost my old laptop(currently I'm on a new cheap one I just bought) that I stopped working on once I got to the ghosts because I stopped caring so this will never be finished oh boy!!!!

this doesn't mean I'm back lets just put that on the table right now

so I lost my old laptop a while back which is semi-why I haven't been posting anything, though I hadn't been posting for a while before that happened tbh

smackjeeves is a weird part of my life, I do like it a lot and I feel when I'm in the right place it can really inspire me to create and get better at my art, but a lot of the time it just makes me feel anxious and pressured. and a lot of the people here are assholes and/or people I feel liked ive wronged by being unable to consistently and reliably create.

so!! theres that

anyway heres wonderwall
