I’d like to request Elma from Xenoblade X? Both her default appearance and
her True Form?

Thanks again for doing Amaterasu, whenever you have the time if it's not too much trouble could you resize the Amaterasu and Micaiah icons to the ones on the site? :ultlucina:

Hey, these work? (I should probably start making the second image I send smaller. I probably won't do that for any of the ones I made unless requested, but I'll do that from now on.)

Anyway, here's some more.

Elma.png

And these next two can be considered the same character.

Yes that's perfect thanks again:)

requests:

Bubsy
Tingle
PaRappa the Rapper
Camera Graffiti (Game Boy Camera error faces)
Jill (Drill Dozer)
Muddy Mole
Sutte Hakkun
Tin Star
Plok
Mad/Meidou (Wario's Woods)
Fang the Sniper
Mighty the Armadillo
Tails
Dr. Kawashima
Dribble and Spitz

I might try to draw some of these myself, but no promises.
Quoting this as posts like these are -to be frank- quite annoying and show why we need a tighter grip on requests. Not aimed at WWW per se, but what are you going to do with the fifteen (!) icons should someone make them? Are you seriously creating a roster with Bubsy? Or is it more like ‘lel, it’ll be fun to see him in this style’?

Consider this: even if a single icon takes half an hour, you’re asking people to invest (or waste, depending on your opinion) nearly eight hours of work into your requests. They’re hardly common requests anway, with only a handful of them have any semblence of making the roster. Requesting characters with little to no chance is fine, but you’re also drowning out many other posts. If person A requests one single icon, odds would drop to (1/16=not even) 4% if request B puts out a list like WWW’s.

It feels super unfair to those with a smaller wish list, and super annoying to those who make the icons as you’d probably just pump out yet another batch of characters if these icons are done, instantly filling up the request list. We can’t win.

Tl;dr: can we limit the amount of requests per person?

Hmmm.
I see your point. I'll try to think of a way to handle the current request board. And I'll limit it to 3 requests per person.

Here's a question to the artists, does it matter that you do the requests that have been waiting the longest? I can limit the request board to only showing the 15 oldest request, limiting it to only 3 up there by one individual user at a time.
On the other had the request board was more of a suggestion board in my mind, as a source of inspiration when looking for a character to make an icon of. So the artists should never feel the need to do any of these and can just make what you want. I mean come on guys, you aren't getting paid so there's no reason anyone here should force you to make any.

Any thoughts about how to restructure it? Show only a few of the requests at a time? Or continue to list them all but label them as suggestions? Or something else? Seriously whatever benefits you guys.

(Edit: Also I'm behind on adding some icons to the front page. I will get to that!)

ALRIGHT!

First page completely up to date.
I've also changed the policy to only allow for three character requests per person at a time. Because of this some requests were knocked off the board because that person had already had requests done for them, but they can submit 3 more again.

Hopefully this helps the artists. If you have feedback let me know and we can make changes to help you out the most!

Anybody else been having a lot of their sig's images break again? I had to completely scrap mine for the time being since nearly all of my icons were gone.

Hoping these show up. If not, they're also in this imgur album. I've also included the two broken mini icons, Toadette and Sylux.

Tried to do a few requests: one of Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario Wario , and did some of the requests that were at the top of the list. I used Jura for the Fossil Fighter hero (since Hero/Hunter has very unrealistic proportions), and Nibbles for the T-Rex. Yes, not exactly the same thing, but T-Rex is well... just a T-Rex.


Style is based on Olimar's helmet, by the way

EDIT: Super annoying, Smashboards. The images show up when I edit my post, but once I click 'Save' they break.

Yeah, also when you click on reply and Smashboards copies it to your text box, all the images are still perfectly viewable.
It seems today, all images being submitted are just straight up not working or something

May I ask for a Daitoryo stock icon for my support thread? I'd naturally include credits to the artist.


I would normally do something like this myself, but I'm afraid I just can't figure out how to do these icons.

EDIT: Did imgur stop working as an image host for this site??

If anyone’s still willing to carry out part 2 of my request (under the spoiler box), let me know!

Anyone mind turning this pic of Andy in to a stock icon?
Whoa, that one blows mine out of the water. So much so, I decided to redo it. I wasn't too happy with it either way as he looked more like a generic boy than Andy, so I wanted to go back to him at a later point anyway - but that image made me want to try redoing him already. I think he

I think he looks tons better than my previous attempt.

I also did two more characters (super easy ones) from the request list:
StarfyIcon.png
StarfyIconMini.png

I tried giving him rosy cheeks, but it just gave him a derpy face.
MickeyIcon.png
MickeyIconSmall.png

Like Sonic, Mickey should use his trademark icon. I'm not really into any Disney characters appearing, though.

EDIT: Oh, and Yarn Kirby.

EDIT2: Pacack Pacack , something like this?

I had no clue if you wanted the Napoleon figure or the actual cards. I chose the latter, as that'd make a fighter about ten times as hilarious.

I appreciate the effort that you put into this, but I'm sorry to say that the character doesn't actually appear on the cards. He's from the box that contains them.

I know that beggars really cant be choosers in this thread, but may I ask you to do one of just the Napoleon figure?

Ok I just uploaded a bunch of icons and requests on the first page, let me know if I missed anything.

splat splat - Now your tiny Bandanna Dee and tiny King K. Rool are broken (the one you edited). Both are extra important to me because they're the ones I used in my sig lol.

Yeah...that's a big reason I picked the characters I drew out from the list we have, if I'm being honest. Although I do try to pick up a random one here and there.

Although that list is getting smaller and smaller, so I'm more likely to pick up more of people's requests rather than my own tastes.

I just hope people can be patient. I'm really only working on these as practice for my job, and only when I have downtime in either of the two jobs I'm working (I literally just work, I'm not home and awake long enough to work on any of these).

My idea and opinion on how the requests should work is the artists should tackle all the ones they want to do first, including requests if they line up or interest you.

Then some time later when most of the big name characters are done you can look into the other requests. Basically if you are requesting a very niche character, be patient because it probably won't be anyone's priority. I mean the game doesn't come out for like 5 months we have time lol.

I'm actually going to request some characters... This time I'll make them well-known to make it easier on the artists who wish to work on well-known characters.

Misty from Pokemon (Her most recent redesign would be awesome, but anything will work!)
Yuuri Kozakatta from Fatal Frame
Ayumi Tachibana from Famicom Detective Club

All images should work now, your signature doesn't seem to give any errors anymore.

I appreciate the effort that you put into this, but I'm sorry to say that the character doesn't actually appear on the cards. He's from the box that contains them.

Hm, there isn't really an image of the Napoleon figure that fits the style, is there? Like, front view. And would he still be recognizable from a different angle, without any body part but his face? I understand you'd want to see your favorite character be represented the way you want, but I'm blanking a bit on how to make it work without breaking the 'rules' :ohwell:

Speaking of characters breaking rules: here's someone that works better from a side view (both thematically as well as there already being a front view).
