NES GS1 by The-Knick NES GS1 by The-Knick
BATTLE THEME: [link]

Dorked around by making the Guardian Sagas One characters in 8-bit based on Final Fantasy 3 sprites, and resourcing the NES's color palette.

Colors and details got a little more difficult with Markkus and Plum, but I like how everyone else came out.

Reference for what the characters originally look like: [link]

*Sigh*...I suppose that's just the beauty of art...

Yeah, when I saw you using those thick outlines (like on Umelia) at first I was like MEH, but then I looked at em for a while, and I started to really like them despite the fact that that's something you're NOT supposed to do in pixel art...kind of reminds me of :iconoceanscented:'s earlier stuff. :D Oh, and overall, great job! And if you're gonna try and go for colors that aren't in the NES palette, you can easily just dither to mix two colors. Oh, but that really only works for larger pieces. :I

I made them with the intention to mimic Final Fantasy 3 sprites, and with little knowledge of NES graphics, I didn't bother to stray too far.

Also, bold black lines is not a pixel art rule-breaking-sin, just as it is not for any other art medium, and I wouldn't go as far as calling it something you're "Not supposed to do".

OK fine then. I'll switch my mindset for you. Thick pixel art lines are something that's incredibly common and acceptable in the pixel art community, and you managing to pull them off well is incredibly unimpressive as opposed to intuitive. Happy? :B

No, I am not happy. I'd just like to dabble in pixel art and not have to hear you whine and complain when I do something you personally don't entirely enjoy doing in your own art, especially when my artistic intention is in a less professional or serious manner. :/

I value you as a friend, and I welcome your creative critique and assistance with my endeavors in pixel art, but I don't intend to appeal to your every desire.

GAH But didn't you listen to what I said in the first message? I said you did something very nontraditional in pixel art, but you managed to pull it off in a good way. You took a new approach to the medium that I had never attempted before because I thought it would turn out bad, and you pulled it off in an interesting way. People throw out the rules of art all the time and make it still look good! I haven't made any complaints of this art at all, and if you got any impressions I did then it's an error of miscommunication on my part.

It was mainly your reply that I got fussy about; which was a bit uncalled for, and I don't know what sparked it.

The vibe I got from the first sentence of your first message, and the "thick outlines are a DO NOT" thing made me feel like I was still getting shamed despite your acceptance.
