Which characters did you use for 11?
Round 11's characters were Saleh, Cecilia, and Igrene. If you click on the links beside my mugs, you can see the competition thread with the original portraits.
I'm in love with your round 11 and 14, just so you know. Those were the worst sets ever and you still came up with those gorgeous sprites.
Thank you! To me, the difficult sets are ultimately the most fun, even though they end up entailing a whole lot of head-desking. >>
As for your custom mug, I'm guessing that she's a Sage?
I was leaning more towards troubador/valkyrie, but mage/sage works too! She definitely looks magical. Actually, she is from one of my original stories, in which she's a queen by marriage who came from a nomadic people. I didn't get the Sacae/nomad vibe from her when I sprited her, though, so she became a caster class
I dig round 16 a lot! I just love her palette!
Thanks! It was inspired by Princess Maker 2
, which uses this beautiful pink/red/brown color scheme throughout the game and menu screens.
And now, so this post isn't all replies:
Splicing Competition, round 18! It's Robin Hood! ( I had scenes from that awesome Disney movie in my head the whole time, haha.) He's definitely going to become a character on his own, probably a custom mug, because I just love robin hood hats. It didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped due to limited pieces in the splicing set, and I feel I need to do it justice. Right now it's made out of Brunya's collar/lapel pieces, and Hellene's chin/face lines turned upside down to make the top part, then corrected with fixes. On the right, you can see the work-in-progress with different hair and minus the feather.
Here's the other possibility I was toying with for Round 18, even though I ultimately went with hat guy instead:
