I'm breaking the "wait 2 posts" rule, but:

Hey Haids. Are you listening to music right now?

I don't think the Two Posts rule really applies here, since this is less of a game and more of a conversation thread.

A Useless Conversation Thread, if you will. :P

Yeah - I think that was at least part of the point of the thread - getting around the two-post rule.

Ummm... you can get a higher post count if you post in both?

As evidenced by the fact that this subconversation is still going, yes, it is. ;D

Well, from what I remember back in the day, the General Chat thread was relatively serious, while the Useless Conversation Thread was for loony misadventures. :P

So, which is this? It doesn't seem serious, but it doesn't seem very loony, either.

How exactly are you making them? From scratch?

Aw, it's just some simple recoloring, that's all. When I can do the hats properly, THEN you can say I have talent. XD
How exactly are you making them? From scratch?

Well, basically, I take a simple standing sprite of Mega Man:

Then I take a quick screenshot to use for reference.

I put them next to each other, and go to work at Mega Man's sprite in MS Paint.  Sometimes the hair needs tweaking, and sometimes the outfits are a little complicated, but I just do my best until I come up with something that looks half-decent.

Some characters are a bit trickier though...what with their hats, purses, facial hair, curly shoes....
At least the latter two I can just edit, but I pretty much have to make the hats by scratch, with varying results.



I STILL can't get Pepper's silly colonial hat to look right... XD

That's pretty cool. Do you use Photoshop for anything?
