The Thoughts of a Dragonfly


Finished Sprite

Posted by Dragonfly the Luminescent , in Sprite Dec 16 2011 · 439 views

I finally finished my sprite! I'm so happy that it turned out right! I'm getting better with recoloring these things!
So I changed everything I said I would, and I fixed some details that I missed before. I'm sure I'm keeping it this way now. ^_^

Okay, so the link actually goes to the same place as the other links to my sprite, but I figure I'll get people's attention that it's finished by making a new blog entry about it. :P

So happy! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D


Sprite Sheet Still In Progress!

Posted by Dragonfly the Luminescent , in Sprite Dec 16 2011 · 391 views

This blog entry is directed to my comic maker friends, Utah, Biocryptid, LNU and Darcsyde.
Do not use my sprite sheet yet! I just figured out something that I can do! I'm sorry for the inconvenience if you began using it, but I'll probably get it up tomorrow, on December 16th. Sorry again, but this is my first sprite sheet I made, so I'm still figuring out what I can do. After this, I'm sure I'll be done. ^_^

Changes I'm making:
Eye color from light green to light blue.
The wings are clear in some places (a.k.a., they technically have holes in them, but they appear to be transparent).
Arm colors. I'm making the shoulder and bicep white, with the hand and forearm minty blue.
I'm also trying to make the eyes look more feminine, but that's difficult with tiny pixels :blink:

I will post and update when I have it finished. Thanks for waiting. :D


New Sprite! Yay!

Whoot! New Sprite sheet FTW! But most of the credit should go to Shadonix for making the sheet in the first place (Yes, I mean Shadonix. I know who's who now :P). Credit also goes to Tavaki and Gerlicky for the wings which I later modified. I don't know who made the Ignika, so credit goes to an unknown spriter, but I made the profile view and the back views.
This is my first time successfully recoloring a sprite, and I actually six-shaded the Ignika ... wait, I think it's five shades ... But anyway, I'm happy. :lol:

Now before everyone shrivels up and dies thinking I'm a major noob (which isn't completely false), the white color in my sprite is actually extremely light grey. I found out while making my sprite that you can't have pure white in the character at all, if you expect to cut out the white surroundings.

As for a tiny bit of story to the character, my excuse to use her without the wings for standing and walking poses is because the wings can "fold up" in that infinite "pack" the Bionicle characters use occasionally in the movies. Remember when Lhikan could fit two Great Fire Swords in his back? If he can fit that, then my character can fit four wings. :P

I suppose some CC might be nice :D


Name Issues ... Suggestions, Friends?

Posted by Dragonfly the Luminescent , in Sprite Dec 13 2011 · 340 views

Toa Mata Nubie, or Dragonfly? Toa Mata Nubie, or Dragonfly?

Oh, I see someone noticed me arguing with myself. Would you like to know? Of course you would.
I started out as Toa Mata Nui, eventually changing it to Nubie because it was funny. :P I got used to it, and, don't get me wrong, I like it.
But after drawing my Dragonfly pony, I want to be called some variant of Dragonfly, since it is more fitting for me, and I think custom characters are more fun. ^_^


I don't change it because of two reasons:
1. I would want to change my sprites in the comic series that I'm a PGS in, and I don't know how troubling that would be for the authors.
2. Depending on how much my friends are used to TMN, they may not prefer the change.

So, friends, what do you think?
Let's make a makeshift poll, shall we? Tell me your vote in post, please, if any of my friends happen to be reading this ...
How inconvenient is it for the comics if I did change my name/sprite? I don't want to slow down any story progression, and that's my biggest problem, because I don't know the answer. Honestly, how will a name change/sprite change affect the comics? A good or bad way?
Truth is, I'll be looking for reasons to change my name/not change my name, not a total number of votes/posts. I'm wondering about the effects of changing my name and staying Dragonfly permanently. Or should I just stay TMN? I'm hoping for answers from LNU, Darcsyde, Biocryptid, and Utah, because I don't want to slow down any stories just because I changed my name and possibly sprite.

:blink: Wow, that ended up being longer than I thought it would.
