Debate / Jeremy Corbyn
« on: August 04, 2015, 22:41 »
If you're in the UK you probably can't escape the name. What are your opinions on him? Is he the right man to lead Labour? Is he the right man to be PM? How else can we get rid of the horrible Tories?

Discuss, argue, whatever.

Random Randomness / Dreams, goals, inspirations
« on: July 23, 2015, 23:39 »
Short term or long term, what do you want to do with your life. Not necessarily career wise, could be anything like wanting to climb Everest or whatever, I don't judge. Also why, when, how sort of thing and who inspires you.

Random Randomness / Stopping smoking?
« on: September 02, 2014, 21:06 »
Hey guys, for the past week or so I've been feeling pretty horrible so I've decided that I am going to attempt to stop smoking, or cut down at the very least. It's no good for me, it's too expensive for me right now, I feel out of breath playing sports and I just don't get the enjoyment I used to get out of it. Anybody got any tips to stop? What worked best for you and do you have any experiences?

Cheers for any help you can offer, trying to get back in shape. :)

Apart from all the obvious stuff like clothes etc, how should i prepare myself? What should I bring? What should I prepare myself for?

Sports / Summer Transfer Window
« on: June 25, 2014, 14:10 »
How's the window looking for you guys?

For me, Fulham have made a couple of interesting signings in Adam Taggart from Newcastle jets and Tim Hoogland from Schalke. Good young attacking talent and experience at the back, what I like to see considering how many bloody players we've released for our season in champo next year.

Where will Suarez go after becoming a cannibal for the third time?

Chelsea have bought everyone, how will they do??

etc, etc..

  • Mega Evolutions not allowed

You can battle me
Weekdays: between 1800 and 2000 GMT, maybe a bit later after that

Good luck.

Sports / Football/Soccer Season 2013/2014 Thread
« on: August 04, 2013, 13:17 »
Well, the football league kicked off yesterday (and the SPL) and the other leagues around Europe and the rest of the world are ongoing or set to kick off soon. What are you hoping to see this season? What are you excited for?

I reckon that the Premier league is going to be one of the most interesting yet, for a number of reasons. Primarily, with Sir Alex Ferguson retiring and Moyes taking the helm at Manchester United there will be a lot of anticipation as to whether they can have any success this season. I doubt they're going to win the prem. this season, but not because of Moyes but because of the strength that Chelsea and The bitters will bring this year. The bitters and Chelsea have had a change in managers too, and Mourinho's return will certainly be interesting.

Huge transfers around Europe already, and there's still a month to go. Falcao, Cavani and Higuain all moving around for blockbuster fees. Will Bale follow?

Discuss bellow~

Character Guides / Joshua Rose [2]
« on: June 26, 2010, 10:07 »
Name: Joshua (Josh) Rose

Age and Gender: 14 and Male

Description: Josh stands at 5'6" but is still growing. He isn't too skinny, but he is not out of shape. His eyes are a pale, misty blue and his hair is messy and rather long. His hair colour is normally described as 'dirty blonde'. Josh likes to wear jeans with a t-shirt and hoodie. He doesn't like wearing formal clothes.

Personality: Josh is very outgoing and enjoys making new friends. He likes to battle and is not one to stand down from a challenge; this frequently gets him caught up in trouble though.

History: Josh was born in Azalea town, Johto. From a young age he has been interested in bug Pokémon, some of this interest coming from Bugsy's Gym. Josh is aspiring to be the best bug trainer ever and has been training his Pokémon since he was 12.

Josh came from quite a poor background, so has been doing voluntary jobs since he was around 10. He has helped out around town doing community work, but now wants to follow his dream of being the best Bug catcher and trainer in the world, as well as an artist!

Moon to fend for itself. Josh plans to give Cubone the love and attention it needs to become more courageous.
 During the second battle with Cubone's previous owner, Josh managed to unlock Cubone's special attack - Hidden Power. This move has devastating force on both Cubone and the opponent.

Your Sprite Art / Sprite Tutorials Topic
« on: April 10, 2010, 11:45 »

When I was in bed several nights ago I was thinking of how Your Sprite Art could get one big kick up the bum to get it going again. This would have to include everyone who frequents the board, people who want to learn, people who need motivation and indeed people to be key parts in this big idea machine.

So then I thought and thought hard until I came up with an idea for a big topic for Tutorials made by the site - and for the site. However, this had been done before and I was upset to see it very inactive. Obviously to grab somebodies attention the kind of idea would need plenty of motivation and eye grabbers and whatever can bring the people in well. That's why I asked Blake if I could perhaps take the idea further and make a bigger topic with more links and more order.

Thanks to all of the support from you guys we've managed to get the topic stickied! =]

This is only temporary though, as bigger things are to come for the spriting community! Watch this space and keep on contributing!


Q: What is this topic for?
A: I plan for this topic to become a big collection of sprite tutorials from many different members on this site in different categories, including common spriting techniques and even ones that nobody has ever heard of.

Q: Why not just consult that site that everyone links to?
A: This board needs to be brought together by you guys working together. Yes, there are the metagame spriters (who are doing a fantastic job), but this is completely different. There are so many different sprites for you to do here for eachother and for the site. If more people learn how to sprite the board will rocket up in activity so more people can request in your shops, more people can make shops for you to request in, more people can make contests and there are many more ideas.

Q: Doesn't this defeat the purpose of people making spriting schools?
A: Definitely not! Sprite school teachers can refer to this as well as making their own guides. Also, some people may want to be taught one to one by another member and the teachers can give tasks. Once you get into the details, there are so many differences.

Q: How do I get my tutorial onto this page?
A: Easy. Just upload it to a hosting site and the link will be posted on this front page under an appropriate category. If there are too many characters they will be uploaded into a main album that will split into different categories.

Q: How do I give you my link?
A: Post it here or PM me it!

Q: What is the 'Other' Category for?
A: There are categories for the spriting types I see the most often (if there are many of one type of tutorial in 'Other' they will get their own category and vice versa.). The 'Other' category is for the sprites that aren't seen as often as the others but still deserve to have a spot.

Q: I posted my link, why isn't it up?
A: Sometimes, the tutorials will not go up. This is because they are either not working or aren't up to scratch. If they aren't up to scratch, I will PM you and you can choose to improve, make another or just leave it.

Q: There is already a recolour guide, should I post mine?
A: Of course you should! The more the merrier!

Q: If I have any ideas how to improve this topic what should I do?
A: PM me or post it here!

Quick Tips

*Always save a sprite as PNG: when you go to save your sprite, save it as a PNG file. This is because it gives your sprite the best quality; if you were to choose JPEG for example, your sprite would become fuzzy and wouldn't look nice no matter how good the sprite!

*Outline shading: Unless you are trying to gain a particular effect, it is good to use darker shades from the body to shade the outlines for the lighter shades. This provides a good range of colours and a bit more depth.

*Get shading to flow with the body: Make the shading of the sprite follow the light source. If the shades don't follow the shape of the body the sprite will not live up to its full potential.

*Find a good contrast of colours: Contrast can sometimes make or break a sprite. Contrast is the difference between two different shading colours. If the contrast is too strong or weak then it can make a sprite unable to live up to its full potential. Finding a good contrast of colours on a sprite can sometimes be hard, but if you follow the next tip you may find it easier.

*Don't be afraid to experiment with your colours: Having the option to create your own colours is something you should take note of! Having the ability to create your own colour means that you can create more shades for your sprites and even your own palettes! If a sprite's contrast of colours isn't working out then you can simply try and find a way out of the mess by editing your colours for a more attractive appearence.

*Save as often as possible: You never know what can happen. Power cuts/etc will have a bad affect on your 4hour pixel masterpiece!
