On second thought they are a bit too cutesey. But other than that it's good work

May I ask if it is really your work, or they are also "stolen"? They look sort of too good to be true... (if it's really yours then take it as compliment)
Title: Re: My New Commanders
Post by: Brian on March 20, 2005, 06:38:59 pm
Hey,

I did not steal them, i worked on them on Adobe photoshop 7. I used the tools for the shading. and the basic template is very simple. The first commanders look like monnkeys, because I kinda was trying to draw a monkey for somehting else, but it turned into a commander.  :D

sorry, I just asked to be sure. Wow, they are really good. I alredy put first one into the game. Btw his hand movement is bit strange, this could be perhaps improved... try the game to see how it looks animated

And btw: new commanders used too many colors (only the first one has approx 200 color), I tried to reduce palette, but it did not look good. So I switched from 256colors palette to hi-color mode (16 bits for each pixel). It slightly increased the size of data file, but it's still ok. But now you can use any number of colors you need (I hope that the size of file will stay reasonable).

Hey,

I edit in some commanders with force armor, and blaster at the top of the page ( 1st post). Check it out, and give me some suggestions and feedback :)
Title: Re: My New Commanders

It's really great! Far better than I hoped for. Force armour is excellent :)  I'll put it in the game soon.

If you don't mind, is it possible to sligthly edit hands? (I mean for commanders without weapons).  When it's animated they look a bit strange (at least in my opinion).

While you are hard at work, I'll be here sitting, doing nothing except waiting for you to post the updates so I can add more criticism. ;)

Hey,

I fixed the hand on all the commanders except the blaster one. I edit it on the first post, I hope it is what you wanted. :) I will be working on jetpack, beam saber, force shield,symbion, and more commanders for the next past days. Please give me feedback and suggestions. :)

Post by: matlu on March 21, 2005, 01:09:18 am
Yep, they all look really excellent! I'm going to put them into the game right now.
(I'm not sure how will the guy with blaster look animated, the phrases are too different. We'll see)

Well I think that the new commanders look great. Yea, they do look a little like monkeys but its a change from the basic human.
Title: Re: My New Commanders
Post by: Brian on March 21, 2005, 01:53:19 am
Hey,

Matlu, i think the blasters, phases are jsut TOO different. Lets see how it looks though, but I will change it so the animation will be somehting like the one in the game. The gun moving up and down. I hope it works out.

When you do some more modifications or new commander pictures, please use following images as templates (Your original pictures were each shifted few pixels to wrong direction, and when animated the commanders were 'shaking'. I also made some small modifications)

I know it may be alot to ask but... Could you make the heads smaller. And with smaller heads, maybe less squashed bodies. I am just not a fan of the style. Well just making my thoughts known.

I personally like this style, it looks a bit 'japanese'  :)

I like the japanime, but I don't like dbz :P

I must say the graphics are very nice quality wise, but they just don't fit. I understand how you think the big heads add a bubbly anime type feel to it.....but how does that fit in with anything remotely close to duelboard, not even any of the suggested "skins". I think they should have a normally proportioned body, and not look so anime-like. I am not saying I could do any better......for I am sure I couldn't, and yes I am a little biased against the "oversized head" theme.

force armor dude looks cool

Give the Fidel-looking commander #2s cigars and I'll say they rock.

excellent work, I already included it into game graphics, and I'm going to upload new version to server

I'm sorry, but I don't like it.  The flames look like orange Jello brand gelatin, his expression look a bit strange, and the shaping of the armor...
Overall, I can see that you are very talented and your works are good graphic-wise, but I preferred the older, more proportionate and less cartooney comanders. It would be cool if you could reshade/edit those.

i don't like them. the heads are WAY too big. they remind me of planet of the apes. lol. the expression of the jetpack commander needs changed. adn the blaster going up and down like the original. that side to side is going to take too much work. but my main complaint is PLEASE shrink the heads! that other commander below the ones currently in use are cool, i like them. the black-looking ones. and that superhero is awesome. keep him in there! :p
