I suppose the difficulty is subjective, but to me, characters are easier to draw when they consist of simple shapes, and hard to draw when they have really elaborate clothing.
I don't see why Kachi is considered any easier to draw than Peach. Midna, on the other hand, seems like she'd be easy to draw, so I don't know why she's in the hard category. I would consider Akari medium, because her snowboarding garb isn't that complicated. Zelda would be medium if drawn in her "goddess" outfit, and hard if drawn in her Skyloft oufit.
Just my opinion, of course. I'm sure I'll struggle no matter who I draw.

yeah, I did the list in my own personal opinion while trying to balance the characters in appropiated categories.
Especially Peach's case, as I normally have troubles drawing dresses (and her patricluar hairstyle).
Midna's case is that, in both of her forms, she can give some troubles. Mainly that stone thing on her head in her imp form.
Akari's case was to balance the chart, but she is actually has an average human look. So yeah she can be put into the Medium.
You are right with Zelda, but her Skyward appearence looks actually much easier than in some of her previous games. That's why she can be in Middle, but could be Hard, as you said, just not as much as Ocarina of Time/Twilight Princess.
Thanks, Fry! Remember I said these wouldn't be due until November to avoid conflict with Nintober, but if you all want to get your first characters going I'll get the process of selecting going sometime this week. I do need to know what level of character all of you want first! I'll be doing HARD ones.

Given my drawing style (in short, Flash-based vector drawings), it doesn't matter what difficulty I get. I'd pick Easy or Hard because I don't particularly feel like drawing Medium characters, with Hard being first priority.
Gimme anything that's left. Don't worry too much about clashing with Nintober. I will probably try and get them done before it starts, or during the many MANY days off work I have taken throughout October!

I'll go with the Easy-list, and preferably don't give me too much to draw, hahah. (Though would there be someone who'd be so kind to color my pics? I'm more good at doing vector-styled linearts than coloring...)
Nester the Lark: I'd like to be playing Fire Emblem Engage, but it wasn't delivered when it was supposed to be, and the shipment tracking hasn't been updated, so I have no idea what happened to it.

Nester the Lark: Times like this make me wonder if Sakurai had the right idea, and buying games digitally is the way to go.
Jan 21, 2023 18:23:18 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Digital is usually more expensive and Switch only supports up to 2TB storage (about 140 to 200 games), but if you want to play games as soon as possible, it's the way to go.
Jan 22, 2023 1:48:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know when will I be getting it. I'm still interested, but it's no longer the "pre-order, premium version" kind of interested. These days I order games in bulks, so maybe I'll wait.
Jan 22, 2023 1:49:34 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Finally, an update. It's marked as "out for delivery" again. Fingers crossed.
Jan 23, 2023 12:58:22 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: About the prices of digital games, I often find that when they go on sale, it's usually for very cheap prices. Except for first-party Nintendo games, which rarely go on sale, and not usually for that big of a discount.
Jan 23, 2023 13:01:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: But then, first-party Nintendo games usually hold their value for a long time even physically.
Jan 23, 2023 13:02:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Welp, that's 0 for 2 on the delivery.
Jan 23, 2023 23:11:36 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And it's out for delivery again. Third time's the charm?
Jan 26, 2023 12:54:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: And that's 0 for 3 on the delivery.
Jan 27, 2023 9:49:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: So, the delivery company gave up and sent the game back to the retailer. My order is being cancelled and money refunded.
Jan 27, 2023 20:41:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I've been in contact with a customer service rep from the retailer all week, and they didn't understand why the package wasn't being delivered, either. But they're sending me a $30 gift card for the trouble, so that takes the sting out of it.
Jan 27, 2023 20:43:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Still considering the digital option at this point.
Jan 27, 2023 20:53:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Went back to my Wii U and downloaded updates / free DLC for games I don't have, in case I want to buy those.
Jan 30, 2023 7:22:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Wii U having only 32GB of storage isn't helpful at all. 3DS and Switch are expandable via SD cards, while Wii U only supports USB hard disks. It made sense in 2012, but with SD cards going up to 2TB now, not supporting that sounds silly now.
Jan 30, 2023 7:27:19 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What started off as me checking what can I do with the Wii U ended up with me just having fun with the system. Also relieved that it still works perfectly fine after 2 years of disuse. Except the Wii U GamePad vibration motor, which now makes weird noises.
Jan 30, 2023 12:43:42 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually planned to use a mod to dump my games and save data, so that in case anything happens to it I can move on to emulation (since, unlike Switch, there's no save data backup service). I haven't started doing that, though.
Jan 30, 2023 12:45:00 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Haha, yeah, still have it hooked up and use it occasionally. Was playing some Fatal Frame 5 recently in anticipation of Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
Feb 4, 2023 9:42:21 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Sometimes, I wonder if Nintendo deliberately leaks things like Tears of the Kingdom's price increase so that the "shock" and backlash doesn't overshadow the proper reveal of the game later.
