    Aisha Smilies

    I remember seeing that a few people had asked for Aisha smilies, and I kinda liked how the Gene smilies added a little more 'theme' to the site, so that spurred me to have a go at making them, just for fun, since I'm always up for experimenting using Photoshop, GIMP and the like. I'm no pixel artist.

    I had never actually intended to upload these, but I was happy with the base and did some quick edits from there. All I really need now is some ways to make them look a little more natural, and maybe hopefully people will be able to use 'em in the future.

    I've tried to keep them in the same style as the Gene ones, but they're slightly bigger.

    Love it
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose. The boy doesn't always now. At some point, the boy then becomes an adult and learns what he was able to become. Joy and Sadness forever will accompany this. He is confronted with a choice. When this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy. The boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream, for those endless possbilities are stretched out before him". We must remember... all men were once boys

    I'm glad they're liked! Some are based on actual expressions from the show (or rather, based on as much as I could while working with such a small sprite.) Some criticism/suggestions on how to make them a little more noticeable would be appreciated, since my main gripe is that it's difficult to tell what each sprite is emoting as they're quite tiny. (42 by 28 pixels)

    Need I say (do?) more? I can't believe I missed this thread. These are great. You're right; such smilies were in demand but I never got round to making them. The first Gene smiley was pretty bad. I got advice from a pixel artist and kept working on it. One wouldn't think that working with such a small amount of pixels would be a problem, but yes, the face expressions are very difficult to get right. The key is not only pixel formation, but also the line colour "hardness". Originally I wanted to pixel all of the main cast. Thanks for doing Aisha and if you like I'll add any you deem finished to the smiley list. Don't worry about the size, by the way. In particular, with the ears, it was impossible to achieve the same resolution.

    Hopefully you don't mind this, but I'm going to put the larger version on Facebook. It's too good not to share.

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

    Thank you! I'll work on touching up a few I'm not sure about and then bundle them all into a download if you'd like.

    I think I'm going to leave the base alone so that means a few of them are 'complete', I just need to work on some of the faces. I tried making the eyebrows much darker once, but it just didn't look right.

    I think I have a completed sprite based on all of the Gene ones besides 'confused' and 'tongue', I did have a go at it but I never really liked how it turned out.

    Sounds excellent, and I love that tongue one! There were a couple of Gene smilies that didn't quite make the cut. Then there's this one, that would have made the cut but I made it since OSUK closed down...



    I'd have made the glasses orange but they didn't go as well with the colours. Those glasses are supposed to be quite wide. Hmm, maybe I should increase the canvas width and have the ends poke out from the sides of his hair.

    Aw, that Kamina one is great. I know some people would get a kick out of seeing that on here.

    Anyway, here's a download containing everything completed: http://www.mediafire.com/download/wl...ha+Sprites.rar

    I never really altered any of them too much since I was kinda content with how they looked. (i.e - I'm lazy) There's also a folder in the download with a few sprites that I never really finished, but maybe I'll complete them some time. :p
