Hmm... nope, don't see anything opposite the "Post Reply" button (other than preview next to it). The only thing I can think of is that I need to create a thread or something first (that or waiting a certain number of days, prove I'm serious about not just spamming the website).
Ah, for the days when I had access to a server on Filezilla, those were the days, alright.

I might just cave and use imgur, though I'd rather just upload directly to the site.


I'll add him to the list, but he'd be coming after 12-13 other characters (including, maybe, Micaiah) And with Smashboards as a distraction, it'll be a while. But you can wait, right? ;D I mean, Boshi is just Yoshi with Sunglasses (plus a different... frill, I guess?), when I get to him, he'll be very simple; even simpler than the Dixie Kong and Shadow ones I did.
Unless Boshi gets revealed literally tomorrow, I can wait. Thank you

How do you even make these?
Illustrator.

I'm not sure how everyone does it, but the easiest would be using Illustrator

Tracing over the image.

Maybe even "image trace" if the person is lazy. LOL.

Star Hill. Why do you ask?
I would love to see Alex Kidd, Grovyle, Harry (teleroboxer), CATS (zero wing), Captian rainbow, Nester (Nintendo power) and Heihachi stock icons

The only thing I can think of is that I need to create a thread or something first (that or waiting a certain number of days, prove I'm serious about not just spamming the website).

When you click insert image you should be given the option to "drop image or click here". Clicking will allow you to upload something directly.

Try using the insert image.

When I click "Insert image" all I see is a URL bar and "Insert" to the bottom right.

I also tried logging out and back in, which did nothing either. :dizzy:

Incidentally, I can drag and drop images directly into the Comment box, where they show up, until I try to preview, where they don't.

I don’t understand Illustrator at all, so I use vector shapes in Photoshop using the pen tool or predefined shapes like circles and boxes with some additional tricks in there. The shapes on my Simon image are just a +-sign and a period in some quirky font.

That's weird...that's how the old site looked but the new site has the option to directly attach pictures.

Does it matter on your browser? I use Chrome.
If not then I suggest going the imgur route it's what I used to do. It's super simple just 1 extra step. I really wanna see all your work and add it to the list!

Switched to Chrome, didn't change the situation. Hmm...

Okay, now that my problem has been fixed, I will proceed to show all 33 of the Icons I currently have done over two posts.
I'll upload them in order, because I'm like that.

There's a bit of Jank on his crown I can't be bothered to fix. Let's just say it gives it 'personality'.
SSBUWarriorOfLight.png
I'm particularly proud of this one. :) Makes for a good final icon of this batch.

This is what happens when I get bored, and hyped, at the same time.

I like the way the helmet came out on this one.

This one is an edited trace of official artwork, so I can't take whole credit for it. XD

Unlike the rest of the female Stocks I elected to include eyebrows in Terra's, to better display her personality.

There's a better one on this very thread, but whatever. XD

I like Tifa.

@Lampy Because you asked for it. I'm VERY proud of it.

Boy, were these two a pain in the butt.

Like Nick, this is a trace. I just felt it was too perfect NOT to be his Stock Icon. XD
SSBUAshley.png

Sadly, the last of this batch. She turned out pretty great.
CustomSmashStocks.png

Drawn in mid-late 2015 to early 2016, when I was at max hype for Smash DLC. I experimented with a new way of drawing when I did these, and some of them turned out great (some of them... not so great... :4pacman:). I still have the larger versions too, so maybe I'll post those or use them as Avatars someday. (I actually successfully predicted Bayonetta back then, even though I didn't think she'd win. XD)

Woo! First Rayman and Travis Touchdown (except for that huge compilation one, kudos to him!), I feel good about that.

EDIT: Put in smaller versions of each character after I realized I might of made them a bit too big...

Can I use the Rayman one on my signature?
Feel free to use the Decidueye one, after all, I made it because you asked for it (I wasn't even going to do it otherwise :laugh:).

In fact, here's a tiny Decidueye.

Well, I did find another Decidueye icon before, but since I think yours looks better, so I'll use it instead.
(plus I don't think it'd be right if I used a different Decidueye icon after you went through all this effort to make it specifically for me)

I love that Decideueye! I really hope if he gets in they keep the "glasses frame" in his icon. It looks really cool!

I did another Kumatora, this one is more based on her Smash Ultimate look rather than her sprite

Amazing work as usual! I'm trying to work on something with my signature so if I could convince you to bump up Dark Samus hmmmm? Lol
Yeah, sure. Let me get at it tomorrow.

Illustrator's pen tool is so much easier for vector shapes
I've heard, though I've been working in Photoshop for so long I don't really understand how Illustrator works, it's much harder for me personally. Kind of happy with how the icons turn out, so I'm pretty fine with it, I guess.

Chrom, Celica, and Decidueye would be wonderful if anyone is taking requests.
I did one of those:
ChromIcon.png

Also one of my absolute favorite oddballs from a series that needs some love:
InfantryIcon.png

And some other character I did because he was somewhat easy to do. No other reasons, really:

Yo can someone do Andy for me?
How's this? Andy is a bit tricky as he doesn't really have too many defining features face-wise, but I tried my hardest since my younger brother uses Andy as his avatar on here as well, so I did not want to let him down (:

Made two versions, one tubed version that is more similar to Samus, and a second without. I prefer the former, though I think the latter is more canon (with the first being more corrupted Samus or something? Not too sure, not that big on Metroid).

Wait a minute.... where's Toad icon? :crying: I know there's Captain Toad icon but still... :dizzy:
I know Dalek_Kolt made one as well, but since I had Captain Toad done already and it was quite a quick edit...

TOAD EMPORIUM! GET YER TOADS 'ERE!

Imadethistoseealeak Imadethistoseealeak Hey, heads up. I spotted two minor spelling errors in the first post. You misspelled "Isaac" as "Issac" (common mistake) and "Simon Belmont" as "Simon Bemont".

Not like it matters, I just thought you should know.
