Seeing as of page six I still didn't find my old topic I have officially said "fuck it" and made a new one.

MOstly maps and icons since I can't mug for my life.

EDIT 2/28/12 - I do take requests, if you need them. Maps generally take way longer than icons, so chances are I won't accept too many of those. Icons, however, are fast and I'll do them in bulk if necessary. All I ask is that you be understanding with tentative deadlines, I can understand one or two necessary to meet a patch release date or something but if you shove a list at me and say "I NEED ALL 40 OF THESE DONE BY NEXT TUESDAY" then I'm likely to reject.

- Maps

Coming soon once I have enough boredom time to make a compilation!

Can I use some for my Fe6.5 hack? XP

The maps looks pretty good. The killer sword looks kinda weird, the blade looks messy. Other than that they're looking good.

That Killer Sword looks a little too curved. Like, snap after a few uses.

Cam, post that sexy battle frame :3 Also, I likeeeee. I don't think any of this should be called crap :) No critique from me, I'm too tired :/

It's a scimitar, it's supposed to look like that. If anything, I would have said that the hero sword's blade looks a little weird, but it's still OK. And I like how you have the weapons neat and arranged by type. Makes it easier to identify everything.

Solid work Cam. I like what you did with the FE5 map. Never would have thought of that myself.

Well I dunno how much the curve of a blade would affect it snapping (not at that small curvature, at least). Messy I'll give you, I couldn't figure out a better way of shading it (that is definitely NOT one of my more recent works).

Anyway, here's some more.

i6Ok.png <- for my hack - maybe a month and a half old?

i6OM.png <- also for my hack - OLDER

And since Jubby asked, here's that battle frame.

I like the frame, it's new without being distracting. First map in the most recent poll's clean, the unreachable without flying units corner is interesting. The second's paths look random.

I've been told I have... unique paths. And yeah, I need to fix those paths I hate them now.

These are for the one that I playtested a million years ago?

The center path cluster of the final map looks really odd >_>. Otherwise they're not awful or anything (the paths). The third map is pretty neat.

I am pretty convinced I had to drive on that path during my license tests.

when did you ever playtest my- Oh that thing that I restarted and will probably drop because I have no idea what I'm doing yeaaaaah...

I find paths to be a hit-or-miss affair, mostly. Either they come out well, or they come out blob-like, stringy and ugly like what everyone has been saying.

Haha, they're not for that one then? That's too bad, I think it had some cool concepts :o. Unless you plan to adopt them, anyway, then no harm done.

I do intend to take a lot of the ideas and transfer them, it's just that I, uh, hate the way I pulled them off.

Gahh Cam... I wish I had critique for you... I just like them :3 I can find nothing wrong.... But clearly... You're the path master :P And ouuuuuuhhhhhhh that frame! I like battle frames. I need help :$

Didn't know you were an avid mapper (At least in part?). They look pretty nice, I like them. A little advice about paths: Think about their premise. They're supposed to be where foot traffic has worn down the land, right? You wouldn't have a bunch of grass in the middle of a path unless there's some other obstacle that people are trying to avoid like a tree or a sign stating the path splits off.

You've got the right idea in the map where the castle and village are separated by a lake. The pathing becomes denser as you get closer to high traffic areas such as the castle so, try referencing that map.

As for the battle frame, I like the design for the character name fields. It's simple but interesting. However, the stat fields seem rather busy. It distracts from the information being displayed.

Had you actually asked, I'd have said that I do mostly icons, not maps. I'd like to think I'm not bad?

Also, thanks for the path advice.

The stat fields I thought were mostly covered up by the in-game bars, but I kinda see what you're talking about. I think it might be that the light shade is too bright? I dunno, I'll fiddle with it.

I actually like that aspect of the frame the way it is :3 It creates a reeeeeeally cool look :) The only thing I thought was kinda funny was having no end-tiles in between the weapon name frame area :P

Welp, now for what I really claim to be good at.

Some old-ish icon requests - I hate the bow and the staff, I need to redo them. This was for Silver Blade.

I was working on some weapon level icons, and I dunno which background I like best, opinions?

Does sliver blade still exist?

And furet isn't a real word, what're you doing CAM?

I like the fire sword, it's unique but still-not-ridiculous looking.

FE: SIlver Blade is still on going. Progress is somewhat slow but it's still there.

Very nice icons. For the background you wanted an opinion on, I'd say the second one is the best. It highlights the sword without covering up any details. Two of the other three have a darkish brown near the middle which makes it seem like they're obscuring the sword. The other one has what looks like a couple stray pixels around the blade but I don't know if that was intentional or not.

For the fourth set of icons: The sword with the red outline is pretty interesting. Is it supposed to be some sort of fire blade? And the tome seems rather busy. It's hard to make out any details. IMO, less is more for an icon like this.

That is supposed to be a fire blade. Your comment on the tome is duly noted, I'll fix it up later ;P
