Still looked better than blue... yours looks like a raindrop.
When you say it's a reference to Big Boo, I'm assuming you actually mean Big Blue Boo, the secret boss from Mario World? Because regular Big Boos are the same colour as regular Boos... but even Big Blue Boo was only tinted blue, not actually completely blue. He's a whitish shade of blue.
Having a ghost as dark a shade as you have King Boo there stops him looking like a ghost at all. He just looks... like a water monster.

Hmm... I have Mario Party 4, but I don't remember that. Haven't played in years, though.
I'm not sure what you mean by "over-the-top", but I think you're being oversensitive. One thing I've noticed about you, not just from talking to you, but reading your responses to other peoples' critiques of your work, is that you don't take criticism well. You tend to either ignore it and pretend it never happened, or try to justify the problem without actually dealing with it.
You don't always do it, I have seen you take peoples' suggestions a bunch of times, like in your game ideas thread. I'm not trying to attack your ideas, I'm just throwing in ideas that I think would improve your work. You've improved a lot since you started doing this, but even the greatest artists have room for improvement, and everyone benefits from creative input from other artists. That's why video games have such large design teams!

Nice pics. I gotta ask whether you have any plans to do punch-out characters and whether you'll do the classics or their more modern appearances (eg Super Macho Man with gold tooth, tan, gray pony-tail or the original NES sprite (not from ringside pic) where he has black long hair with paler skin.)?

Hmmmmmmm. I understand this completely now. When it's something that I pretty much know of where I've gone wrong, it's not too bad and I take anything else into account. But when it's something of a far more trivial nature (such as many of the things that people here debate about a lot), things just get way too complicated from there (I even had to give up on my ideal Smash Bros., because it's....you know, too much to get through). The whole game ideas thing was just a way of showing off what it is I can come up with for future games. I didn't mind if anyone read them or not, just as long as I put them up, and that was plenty.
You haven't seen my previous collection I did of these. And you're better off not seeing anything older of it. Even now, these aren't really the greatest, I'll admit, but still a whole lot better than before.
Regiwi, I'm not entirely familiar with Punch-Out myself, sorry about that. But you know, you can think of this as some sort of "dream trophy collection" for another Smash Bros. game.

I used to not be so interested in them, and (believe it or not) I actually liked Bowser Jr. more. BUT, thanks to New SMB Wii, my interest in them is slowly being rejuvenated. Just gotta wait for those artworks of them and they're all set.
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?

Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.

Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.

Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.
Apr 30, 2021 9:43:07 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.
