I love the concept on this but I do feel that it needs a bit more polishing to make it really shine. First, the good stuff. You've take...

I'm a mom of two of young boys, as well as a Help Moderator on Dragon Cave Forums. Hence my art time is somewhat limited. My current media are pixel art, as well as building/painting miniatures.

As a note - I WILL hide your comment if there is profanity anywhere in your message. This includes avatars and signatures. I do not want that plastered all over my DA page.
For those wondering about my mom, she had her surgery on June 6.  The cancer was still confined to the kidney, although it had begun to spread into the lining of the kidney.  The surgeon took several samples of surrounding tissue just to be sure, but it looks like we are in the clear for now.  The survival rate of stage II renal cell carcinoma is about 80%.  The oncologist is going to monitor her closely over the next several months.

Mom is sore and not back to her old self yet - it may take several months - but she was well enough to come see us this week.  The boys were very happy to see their Grandma, although we had to explain to them that Grandma had an "owie" and wasn't able to play as much with them as she normally does.  Everything went well - the boys remembered to be careful and we even went out on the town a bit.

Also, I am thinking of opening up art request or trade slots as I had a lot of fun working on Mynzaea, and it's good practice for me.  Keep in mind that I don't have a lot of time to do requests since I'm a pretty busy person, but I will get it done eventually.

... please send a good thought for my mom.

She was diagnosed with kidney cancer today and will have her kidney removed next Wednesday.

Hopefully it has not spread to other areas, as this form of cancer does not respond well to chemo or radiation - so surgery is pretty much the only option.  I am hoping against hope that it was caught early enough, and if removed, will not return.

This is not her first rodeo with cancer, and she is fairly upbeat about it.  I'm still kind of stumbling around in a fog and am not sleeping very well.

Hey, uhm...
I noticed you've got updated Silver sprites - is there any chance someone (probably you?) is going to make an update Silver egg sprite? 
I've found that for three or four years now I'm still stuck with the question while in the AP - "Is that a white or a silver?"

I do!  I think I will have to try that color gradient technique on a future project!

What program do you use to make your sprites?
ladylyzar Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I use Photoshop CS2, but the beauty of spriting is that you don't really need a fancy program.  You just need a pencil tool and a 1 pixel eraser with no anti-aliasing, so even MSPaint is good enough.  Many of my sprites were made in old fashioned MSPaint.  The only thing I couldn't do was transparency, but there are sites that will do that for you.

I've heard good things about GraphicsGale and GIMP, but I have not personally used either of them.

I have CS4.  I tried making a dragon sprite, but the brush tools I have didn't really work because even at a thickness of 1, sometimes it colored two or even three pixels. 

I use Paintbrush, which is like MS Paint for Macs, but I'm not great at making sprites.  I posted the best one as a design for that 8-bit t-shirt contest, but I wasn't even close to winning.  I never post my sprites.

You don't want to use any brush tools wherever possible, because they have anti-aliasing on.  If you turn off anti-aliasing you should be able to use just about anything.  I don't know about CS4, but in CS2 it's an option on almost every tool.  I use the pencil, paint bucket, and eraser at 1 pix width, but make sure that you have anti-aliasing turned off on each one.
