Should we request avatars here? If not, I'll edit this post.

We need Psychonauts.


Like these?

Psychonauts:
Boyd
Posted ImagePosted Image
The Butcher
Posted Image
Coach Oleander
Posted Image
Crispen
Posted Image
Lili
Posted Image
Lungfish
Posted Image
Milla
Posted ImagePosted Image
Razputin (Raz)
Posted Image
Agent Sasha Nien
http://img.photobuck...-Sasha_Nein.jpg


I can't remember Millia's last name. I think it might Vodello.

I could do some from Castlevania CotM and DoS if those are wanted.

Edit: Crap, I just realized that only .gifs are allowed. are they ok other wise? I'll fix 'em later

LT: Ain't that a lot. Well, many of these Psychonauts pics look too weird to be serviceable, but there are some cool ones. Do some GIFs of Coach Oleander, Lungfish, Raz, and Agent Sasha Nien.

Castelevania: Circle of the Moon

Nathan Graves:

Morris (Baldwin?)
http://img.photobuck...cotm/morris.gif
Hugh Baldwin
http://img.photobuck...a/cotm/hugh.gif
Carmilla
http://img.photobuck...m/carmilla2.gif
Dracula
http://img.photobuck...otm/dracula.gif
Maneater (monster)
http://img.photobuck...tm/maneater.gif
Necromancer
http://img.photobuck...necromancer.gif
Skeleton (not sure which crop to use)
http://img.photobuck...tm/skeleton.gif
Werewolf
http://img.photobuck...tm/werewolf.gif
Axelord (not so cool looking with size limitation)
http://img.photobuck...tm/axelord2.gif

For the CV: Circle of the Moon ones, the resolution looks fuzzy on most of them. Necromancer and Werewolf were good though, so I took those. If you can clean up the resolution on the 2nd Nathan Graves, Hugh Baldwin, the 1st Carmilla, Dracula, and the close-up Skeleton, those would be good. The rest, fuggitaboutit.

Edit: Some links are broken, intentionally. Just check for newer ones in later posts.

All of them are 32x32 gifs. Not all of them are pixel perfect though.

LT: Other than Space Ghost and Zorak (thanks), the rest are pixely crud and you know it. Brak's the best of the rest, but even that could be better. Some are obviously too dark. When you're not using Photoshop or something good to resize, it shows.

TCK: I think I found what I did wrong for the others to look so shitty. I'll fix them out tomorrow. Also, added Phoenix Wright avs.

Besides, as long as Space Ghost works :D


LT: Most of the Phoenix Wright are slightly muddy (the ones with the gray backgrounds) or too sharp (Phoenix could be smoothed out more), but the 2nd and 3rd to last on the right (Gumshoe and Larry) are good, so I took 'em.
EDIT: Actually on second though, there's just too much white/empty space for those two, and the faces are shrunk too much. If you color the background and/or get closer looking pics for Gumshoe and Larry, that would be good.

We need a Kris Kristofferson avatar (and not that Blade-stuff, but some older pic).

@ Liontamer

Really? They all came from the full sized version of these pics: http://castlevania.c...mespy.com/cotm/ and in most of them, I used a fixed size selection square of 32x32 instead of manual selction and cropping (which doesn't yield the best results). But I agree with you about the outcome of the Werewolf and Necromancer.

Should just increasing the resoultion in Photoshop (via image size)do the trick)?

I can do some Dawn of Sorrow ones also, they were definitely more simple anime like (Think Pokemon people), so they should come out clearer.

I also think we should have one of Agent Cruller from Psychonauts, great character. Boyd's character really stood out in the game and is worth an avatar also.

LT: I have most of those from last time around, and saved all the new ones except the OCR4-tan. The resolution on that one doesn't look quite so hot, but see if you can tinker with it.

Posted Image
Is that what you were looking for?

Watch me pull out the anal-retentive card. I swear it's just for quality control, not "OMG I HATE YOU AND DISREPECT YO?UR EFFROT!"

Well, unfortunately OCR4-tan looks too sharp/pixelated now, so a happy medium between the first and second tries should get a good result.


Here some others...

Posted Image

LT: A little grainy, plus the style/background looks so similar to the other one that we only need one good pose, so...

Posted Image

...by request, here's the King of All Cosmos himself.

LT: No on the first one, but nice work on the second. Nice, bro. That's a winner.

Posted Image

Posted Image

..and secondly, our favorite Beyond Good & Evil babe, the lovely Jade!

LT: Weird; the first one is ok per se, but the pose on the second Jade definitely looks better, only the pic's too dark. Can you lighten it, and we can just use that one? Otherwise, I can just use the first Jade.
This is only my opinion
I may be wrong

How did you improve OCR-tan? Did you just use sharpen?

Thumbs up on Jade. Only she can make green lipstick hot.

Starcraft needs some serious avatar love.

LT: First one's a little too muddy, and they're both too dark compared to all the other avatars. Can you lighten them up so they're a bit more visible? Otherwise, nice. I'd like to use at least the medic.

LT: Yeah, I remember these from last time around. Some of the more chibi-glow-in-the-dark-eyed stuff looks absolutely scary. I took 8 of 'em (1 Grahf, 1 Chaos, 4 Kos-Mos, 1 Albedo, 1 Shion), and will pass on the rest. Hope you're not offended by that.


No. Not at all. That's plenty. I love you.

Here's some updates.

I just realize that i didn't load my CoTM ghost one up. I don't think you are collecting enemies, but I thought it looked really cool, and I truly hope you consider it.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I made different versions of the skeleton so you choose. By the way, the grey line on the left is the bone it is throwing. Should I keep it or erase it?

LT: Skeleton's kinda iffy anyway as the main image was too fuzzy and the sharpened one is too sharp. The bone would have to be erased though. If the size was smaller to allow more of the skull in the picture, too much detail would probably be lost, so I'd scrap it. Kind of a lot of white/empty space in that one anyway, so I'm trying not to add it many like those. White space looks bad over a silver/gray background.

Dracula's a little bit pixelated, but good enough, so thanks for sharpening him. Ghost looks awesome as hell, and no I don't descriminate against what type of characters/things are given images. Anything from a game that would look good as an avatar is fair game.

By the way, I did see your earlier comment about the CV images you linked to. Tough break there, but I see how the grainyness wasn't your fault at all. The images Classic Gaming had were already muddy and small to begin with, so you tried to work with what you had. But yeah, that's why some of them aren't that hot.


Do you think Coach Oleander needs to be sharpened/brightened?

I also added a couple of more characters. There are ton of avatar worthy characters from the game, but I think we have enough. I thought the ones I added were really worth adding.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Agent Ford Cruller

Sheegor

http://img.photobuck...-Sasha_Nein.gif
Raz (I made a simple .gif conversion and a sharpened edition, I leave it up to you to choose)
http://img.photobuck...hn/OCR-Raz2.gif

After posting Ford, I see that it doesn't look that good, but I really enjoyed the character.

LT: Actually, now that you mention it, Coach Oleander and Lungfish could use a tiny bit of brightening, but it's not a huge deal if not. I think they come out ok. I also took Sasha Nein and the sharpened Raz. The others didn't look like they would fit as much. Hope you're not offended by that. Thanks for coverting those JPGs.

Edit: forgot these

LT, from left to right: thanks/just right, too sharp, not sharp enough

Nope, I also messed up with the contrast a bit.

Ones that we need:

Delta Force symbol
Number Munchers characters
ET from Atari 2600
Clay Fighter characters

Of course, since I don't have the capacity or patience to do anything in gif format, I'm leaving this to others to do it.

I'll jump on the Number Munchers request because I loved that game. However, I'm not wanting to do the others right now. May do them later if I feel like it.

Edit: I happened to find a download for the game and a clone of it. Now I can't remember why I loved the game so much (I guess it was fun when you didn't know the number so easily). Oh well, here it is.

Posted Image

LT: That clone can die! Apple IIe or nothin' as far as I'm concerned. (Actually, the old Mac Color Classic had a good upgraded version of the game with improved graphics.) But yeah, fuck that fake clone version there. If you get the REAL pics from Apple IIe Number Munchers and them some Troggles, then I <3. Troggle-us Smarticus, baby. Nevar forget.

Yeah, as soon as you find me a program that can take images from a DOS program. Or if you can give me some real pictures of it w/o numbers in the way. (which at that point, you could probably make one yourself).

Edit, I might be able to do one from the lives in that picture, but it would look cruddy, unless I perhaps recolored it. (Clearing up "clumped" pixels)

Edit: Back to Razsputin. Look at the diff. btwn the sharpened and unsharpened one. The Sharpened one is brightened, but a bit too sharp on the edges. The unsharpened one is perfect on the edges, but a tad dark. I think if I just increase the contrast on that one, it would be perfect.

As for the ChibiOCR-Tans, I knew the first looked the best. The other two I couldn't sharpen anymore if I tried (except maybe with the manual sharpening tool). At this point, do we need the others?

LT: Don't worry about Number Munchers. In a perfect world, there would be many pics online with which to get some avatars. Best best for anyone interested would be to emulate the Apple IIe and get some screen captures.

Sharpened Raz is a little too sharp, but from a casual distance, you can't really tell. If you want to lighten to smoother one, you're more than welcome to try.

No need to worry about the other OCR4-tan pics, as those weren't the best shots anyway.
