Hello everyone, it's been a while. I figured this needed to be done since I've been getting a lot of private questions lately. I suggest reading this because it's become a pain to have to reply to the same message from so many people. As such, I will no longer be answering any messages regarding anything covered here (most of these are copied directly from messages that people have asked me and are my replies without any of their information). I'm still willing to answer any other questions and I don't want to seem hostile - it's just that I don't want to waste time with these questions anymore since there are so many of you that ask them
Question #1: "I like your art. Join my fan project and make it for me."
Answer: I'm sorry, I've completely exited the spriting scene all together for the moment to focus on my writing. Good luck though, the project seems interesting!
Question #2: Are you still making pixel art? Why not?
Answer: Not at the moment, no. Life is too hectic with college, a novel career, and a baby on the way (yay, Abbie's pregnant!). Since I'm not a part of a project and no longer enjoy it, I haven't made anything since.
Question #3: Can you resize your tilesets to 32 by 32 pixels.
Answer: Please learn to read the comments first. I should prolly just put this in the description, but the reason that I don't have it up here on DeviantArt is because the file is too big. ANYWAYS, here is the file ready to be inserted into RMXP:
Also, here is the interior tileset:
AAAAND the cave set if you are interested:
Question #4: What programs did you use?
Answer: I used RPG Maker XP for all of my later maps but for a long time I used paint exclusively for everything, including my maps. The key to resizing them is using Photoshop which is how I also make my sets transparent.
Question #5: Can I use your stuff?
Answer: Sure, if it says its public in the description and not private. But seriously, learning to make your own stuff helps a lot even though it takes time. But you can't cut corners with art, unfortunately.
Question #6: Commissions?
Answer: No. Please learn to read a little bit more.
Question #7: My project isn't Pokemon. Are you interested now?
Answer: I'm not interested in making any art for games anymore and I won't be able to make anything in an orderly fashion with how chaotic life is at the moment. I just found out that I'm having a baby, please do not expect me to balance anymore than I already am.
So yeah... I'm going to retain a semi-active state on Deviant Art here and I'm willing to answer any other questions anyone else has on spriting/mapping/game development whenever I'm on.
