I apologize for being away for way too long. :( As of now, I have been a bit too focused on developing orikivo.cs, a Discord bot in the works with a lot of ideas in mind. As of now, it has some features, and once I fully flesh out how every single command is going to work, I will begin creating more pixel art for it to use. Hopefully, I can finish this soon, because I kind of miss just drawing pixels, and other things for fun. See you soon.

:^)

(Also, if you wish to join the rigorous testing, or just want to hang out in general, I'll place out two servers that you are free to join at any given time.)

orikingium.central(base) => discord.gg/HXTzKuS
orikivo.cs(dev-server) => discord.gg/387Axar

Hey Abner, I was just wondering how you do your shading/gradients? Do you use specific technique or do you have a program that helps you?

The only case in which i used a gradient was on the logo version two (basic-pixels v) testing due to transparent values creating mirage gradients.

When it comes to shading, I use a base color, and slowly change it to a colder hue, alongside a darker value. It's time consuming, but it really helps bring out nicer gradients. :^)

Cool! That's similar to what I do, actually; but what I was kinda wondering was how do you apply the shading? Like, in this sprite that you made, there're multiple levels of shading throughout the entire thing, and even glow effects as well.  project[]squared : trenches.deep-sea-unknown by AbnerSquared
