XD making avatars is hard

Not as easy as it looks, I've experienced now. Also could someone tell me if (and if so: how) those black borders are treated specially in the tile sheets. thx.
First try: It was necessary to show the waistband, but having his arms unfolded on 1 frame looked awkward.

The Femme fatale reminds me of Larry suit larry 1, the Grey Ninja is looking too pixely to me but the hooded monk would maybe grow into something if worked upon :nightshade: also notice how ( I think ) every EUO mob tile has a black border around the figure, that's what your avatars do not have :smoke:

They're good, but just a touch too big. EUO tiles are 16x16.

I've modified the monk image to fit a 16x16 square and put the border round the image.

That black border is there to prevent player avatars clashing with the background tiles.

Remember that custom player avatars are only local, and will be overridden by major patches(ones that require EUO be restarted).

Thx for the feedback. That black border stuff makes sense, but I've never noticed it in game.
It seems the color profile on my other computer is totally wrong, leaving apparently HUGE black borders on the characters. I don't think I'll find time anywhere soon to complete these...

WTF do I know what you're talking about? How about a Sonny Bonds ;D
the Grey Ninja is looking too pixely

His right arm needs a bit of touching up and his face could be different. That's what you mean?

Nice rendition, Devlin.
