… I have no defense for my actions.
just fyi i’m gonna be without wifi for a few days
to make up for it i just queued a bunch of things i’ve been meaning to reblog, so
i’ll see you guys later c:
ohh, so that unfinished post i accidentally queued yesterday at some point didn’t get eaten up by tumblr.
i recently colored a whole bunch of things that i drew (mostly), hah
some drawings may be older than others, but i bet nobody cares
What program or programs do you use for making your sprites
Mainly MS Paint. I’m not even joking.
I literally use that for pretty much all of the spriting stuff I ever do.
GIMP is my secondary program, which I use for the things MS Paint can’t do, such as transparency and easy hair outlines. (when it’s already filled in, anyway. Otherwise I just do the hair outlines in paint as well.)
But yeah. I mainly work with Paint. Because that’s what I’m used to.
could you perhaps explain how the coloring of a glowan's outfit works? does it follow the primary color or secondary color? or can it be a mix of both where the primary color accents the secondary color and vise versa?
Both, actually. The glowan gets to decide.
They’ve all got this nifty little symbolkey thing, which is a common piece of high-tech that is capable of a lot of things. They get it once their pupils show up.
Its key features are unlocking their house/apartment/whatever (fourer symbolkeys would probably unlock their own room at the farm?), acting like a credit card of sorts (the only currency they’ve got is digital, so), and, you guessed it, to customize their clothing with!
And it has several settings for how one wants to color this and that article of clothing. Black and white are wildcard “colors”, and thus available to anyone. And any uncolored clothes are grey. They are made out of eep wool.
(Eep, for those who don’t know, is a species native to Avinara, and it’s known for its color-changing wool. It turns grey when sheared off, but they have managed to exploit its color-changing properties, through this thing. So yep.)
Of course, mutants don’t get the privilege of having a symbolkey on their own. Hence why they neither have a symbol, nor any colorful clothes.
There is a whole bunch of examples under the readmore!
And also more stuff, it turns out.
