There's still spiders all over the place in here


Looks good. That's really all i can say.

Not sure if you want criticism.

The contrast could probably be higher on the outline since the shades are to much the same.
Still fluffy though :)

Why are all of your sprites so awful looking? I mean, really. You should just stop making them.

I'll be honest here, this is a bad sprite.

The shading is plain wrong, especially on his tail, where it looks like it's been flipped upside down. On the rest of him, however, it's just pillow shaded.
Not that you can notice that on first glance though. There are so many shades with so little contrast between them that they all blend together into a muddy, blurry mess.

The shaping is damn bad too. Everything is at a 45 degree angle of some sort, making him look like some kind of strange octagon-man slapped over a Sonic Advance base.
There's no depth to it either. He looks completely flat, which may be partially to do with the shading, but the fact that his head sits atop his body like Wonderboy on his mountain high above the mucky muck doesn't help, and neither does that cardboard tail.

But even if both of those were fixed, I still don't think it would ever make it any further than becoming average, and that's mostly because on a fundamental level, the design is ridiculously boring. Years ago, I had a character who looked a lot like Kale, except more serious, and had a scar over his eye. The brown jacket and the blue jeans mixed with grey fur is so overdone that even if you put him on a unicycle and made him jump through a fiery hoop with "Entry of the Gladiators" playing, it couldn't possibly be interesting.

I remember when people used to drool at how good your sprites were, Shard.
Let's bring back those days, shall we?

@Mr. 'Chidna:
If anyone ever drooled at shard's sprites, it's not because they think they're good, it's that they're fucking retarded.
They've never looked good, and I'm not just being mean about it.
It's kind of sad that someone who's been doing this for almost double as long as I have can't hold a candle to my mediocre shit.

LETS take apart your comment, Neroe
The main issue I want to address is how you just butchered the English language. I mean, really, LETS???
It's like you haven't even looked in a dictionary throughout the years you have had to do so.
It's LET'S, Neroe, as in, let us.
Seriously, before you try to raise a point, please learn to write properly.

>TLDR: You're a self entitled retarded 12 year old kid who's angsty and edgy because he thinks it makes him funny and cool; he does it because mommy and daddy don't love him.

>Anything you comment past this point just proves my point further. You've lost Eddi, go home. I'll take the high road from here on out and just ignore you, so have a nice life you fucking cunt.

You call him a 12 year old and then say "Anything you comment past this point just proves my point further."?
This is either a bizarre attempt at trolling, or you're "a self entitled retarded 12 year old kid who's angsty and edgy because he thinks it makes him funny and cool".

Now, because I'm actually man enough to realize that this is an immature argument, and that this is on neither of our comics, I'm going to do the mature thing and remove all of my comments when I come home from the beach. So until then, read them, study them, learn from them.

Shard, I am very sorry that we have spammed your comic page with our petty argument.

Everyone else: I'm sorry that you had to view this fiasco.

Oh Jesus Christ this is why I should log in more often. I missed the Butthurt Brigade's Perplexing parade.

Why is our sect of the SJ spriting community so fucking hotheaded?
Seriously. This deteriorated from my in-depth, and highly articulate analysis of the sprite to name calling and shit-slinging. It's fucking hilarious.

...I don't even know what to say here...I don't get how showing a single sprite could cause so much argument. Whatever.

Posted at August 30th, 2012, 12:19 pm

@Muddykip64: because who argues is a troll who wish they can do better and they are upset with their own work and they think making someone feel bad and ridiculing their comics, sprites, etc, will make their darn problem go away but it wont because if they wanna be a good spriter they gotta learn that 1. they gotta stop acting like they are fricken bad@$$3$ because they aint, roleplays, comics, flashes, ok you get to act like that. but doing this in comics is just a waste of time, also i would like to say next person to comment and is disagreeing is just a dumbass who doesnt know when to drop an arguement. for all everyone knows your just a rapist whos trying to get on her upset side and then gain trust from her with apologies and shit and perform some weird rapist crap or just a person who needs to get a girl, a job, some friends, and a life. And no one has the right to say anything bad bout this cause we all can say the same about your comics in any way we want.(that goes for whoever reads this and is a comic troll) that means you eddigardo and you Mr.'Chidna. also chidna....your avatar sucks like hell -.- thats all i need to say and if anyone wants to argue with me they will be wasting their time and their life.

also i think its good, it could use some work like a good pose, but its still good cause you put effort into it shard.

i never typed such a long comment ._.

Just read your comment.

Nothing you said makes any sense in context.
I did not "Ridicule" Shard at all, I gave her some fucking constructive criticism. I told her exactly what was wrong and how to change it: If you think that's bad in any way, it's obvious you'll never improve.
We do have the right to say bad shit, just as you do, because funnily enough, this is the internet, and funnily enough we do have this little thing called Freedom of Speech. Don't like it? Hurt feelings? Need more vaseline to calm your hemmhoroids? Move to North Korea then, you stupid fucking wanker.
I'm not trying to act like a badass, I'm trying to help, and if people like you are just going to be whiny, petulant little bitches about it, then maybe it's best I don't bother. Maybe it really is a waste of time when retarded dickwad cuntbags like you decide to drop in with no prior knowledge of what the fuck is going on and spout some bullshit all Romney style.

And another thing. Your little "rapist" rant. How the fuck can I rape a girl in another country from me? Do you even know what rape is, or did you just slap your chode across the keyboard and hope for the best? You have no idea what you're talking about, and you should just shut the fuck up before you embarass yourself even more. Why did you even decide to insult me? I wasn't involved in the argument, you fucking retard.

You wanna reply to this? You think you're hot shit? You're not. I'm a better spriter than you, better comic-maker than you, my avatar is actually better than yours. Hell, I am literally superior to you in everything I do.
You're a worthless little piece of shit. You're a waste of quarks, and you're the most ignorant sack of fuck I've seen for a while.

tl;dr, Fuck off, you cunt.

Are you guys too busy laughing at all this nonsense that you might be confused about what is going on?

Let me break it down for you peeps.

1. Shard posts a new sprite for her showcase for all to see.
2. Handful of what seem to be regular people are mildly complimenting it.
3. Some guy with a nice sprite comes in and shares his opinion to order to carry Shard to making cleaner sprites.
4. White knights comes in to stand up for Shard because God knows if they're falling for her or not.
5. The Critic comes back to back up his statements and shows that he wasn't trying to offend anyone.
6. The White knights ignore this and keep harassing the critic and awkwardly brought RAPE into this.

Shard is in an awkward moment where she realizes that she has multiple underaged fanboys that want to have adult commitment with her.

Also Chidna's mad and upset with someone who was attempting white knighting.


Needs more contrast and less gray.

I'm fucking angry because this cocksucker is so ignorant and literally everything he said was wrong and disrespectful on a fundamental level. At this point, it's not about Shard's sprite anymore for me.

Hi there Demonhog, what's going on in the wonderful world that is you?


Oh nothing just bored, but seeing you're here chatting away about boasting, trolling and trying to be 'radical' is charming. Really it is.

Seeing that I'm suddenly here for no reason to read these comments to past the time, I thought hey... why the hell not? So let's read what you said:

Number 1 - 'They gotta stop acting like they are fricken bad@$$3$ because they aint, roleplays, comics, flashes."

Nobody is acting like a badass here (I'm not sorry about the 'bad' language by the way) because the sprite is weak. Very... weak. Role-plays, advertising, flashes and TROLLING have nothing to do with critism for the sprite Shard made; you silly goose.

Number 2 - Apparently there is no number two or three or four, that means you rushed your comment and didn't think this through. Good job, you deserve a badge for your commitment for the cause.

It's people like you who think that they can change the world around by trying act like the guardian of a sacred temple that shouldn't be touched by corrupted minds. Sorry but everything you wrote there was tripe.

You need to get your facts straight.

I can't see Neroe's comments now but judging from the other's comments I feel like I messed something that would have required a huge amount of popcorn for the bystanders.
