    Mantis' Smilies

    It's nice to see some other members making their own! I figured I'd try making some new ones. As you might know, I made the original Gene set (with a few edits from Baron if I recall correctly), but Aisha's smilies were made by Skatetro, and Chibi Gene's by Melubnio. You've probably seen the beer toast smiley which I made recently and it's also a preview of the Fred Luo set of smilies I'll complete in the near future.



    So, in this thread I'll just add what I'm working on. Tonight I spent a short while planning and making a miscellaneous smiley: the Cactus Bastard. I'm going to have to make this one a bit taller than the others since I can't do the "head" and it's a tall character. Right now I've only done the damn pot, but progress is progress.

    It will have either two or three sets of glowing red animated eyes! Hypno-Cactus is now controlling Unregistered! I'll finish it tomorrow!

    Gene: "I don't!"

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Looks great so far, that is a nice looking pot. Of course, this is only the cactus manipulating me to say that. Just kidding, I can't wait to see how it turns out!

    I've been a bit sidetracked over the last few days, so this is a bit late. Anyhow, it's WIP since I don't think it looks that good and I might have to restart some of it. Shading a cactus isn't easy because of their weird texture. Also, the final version would have pulsating "eyes", going from the current look to a mild red for the eyes and a soft green for the outlines.

    Why make a cactus smiley? Why not?

    I know it's gonna prick me, but I still wanna hug it.
    At the same time, I wanna run from the hills. Quite a dilemma...Well done!

    What. Haha, my face is so red right now. You could say that the hypno cactus is my other brain, always stealing me away to lure customers from ice cream parlors. It's so cute, Mantis. That's almost criminal!

    Haha, I'm glad you like it. Honestly, at the end of it I wasn't sure why I did it since it seems pretty useless. Then again, why am I doing this? What is this place, exactly?

    Mantis has agreed to continue obeying the Great One. Mantis is only playing this administrative role as a pawn. Mantis will not try to defy the ruler of the universe again. Mantis likes bubblegum ice cream the most.

    Figured I'd put new smiley work in this thread. I started Suzuka and it's very far from complete. I might put this on the back burner for some time because she isn't easy at all. Her features are smaller than other characters' which makes it tougher with a small pixel resolution. Also, her hair is so long I don't think it's possible to do it without an insanely larger height.

    Can't see her eyes so well as they're narrower, etc. For now I'm gonna move onto a different character. Ideas?
