I'm not really a fan of the new sprites,the older ones looked more graceful and they were more deer-like which I loved.Oh well..

Both of them have posted in the thread at least once being excited that their work was in-cave though, so I don't think that could be the case.

 

I really hope that they didn't have to lose their alts and having their dragons in-cave because of some other error :/ That would be really crappy.

Oh I was thinking permission too- in which case I'd be excited to have the other sprites back if it was that easy (:

 

 

I hope we do get more of an explanation though... kinda super lame to me how it all is right now

Uhm, let's keep it civil, ok? I understand that you might like previous spirits more, but calling new ones "crappy" is a bit harsh. From what we know, something happened and new ones had to be created fast and FAST. And the artist(s) managed, we got new dragons. Let's wait for adults' form, perhaps some minor mistakes will be fixed with time. Peace.

THIS. 100%.

 

Newer users might not remember the Great Fog. I don't, and I've been on since 2009. But I've heard of it. But I WAS around for the issues with DoveALove. And Frills.

 

I do not know why the sprite was changed, but changes like this do not happen for no reason. There had to be a really compelling reason behind it.

 

PLEASE be civil to the artist/s and sprites who may well have saved us from even bigger problems. I'm not one to hold back, when I don't like something and have no problems going up against artists.

 

But in this case, I can think of many worse situations than a hatchy sprite change that we had for all of 3 days. If you think about it, I'm sure everyone complaining can ALSO think of them.

 

Cheers!

C4.

Okay, so I am stuck in the nest at the beginning... I know, I am awful, and I hate the difficulty of this... How do I escape?

Well I'd be lying if I said I wasn't disappointed at the changed sprites, but the new art is nice too. I love the wings on the adult.

 

I definitely liked the first hatchlings better.

Hm. We'll never know. I'm sure it was a difficult situation.

 

Not really a fan of them but that's just me. I don't like swirly designs on wings and those drops. I'm not an artist so I don't have anything to say about their actual quality.

Out of curiosity what is going on with the toes? They remind me of webbing like a frog has, not a bad thing just got me attention.

The hatchies are adorable, and the adult is absolutely gorgeous! I love the purple color! wub.gif

Fantastic job of spriting, Edwardelricfreak & Tazzay!

I'd feel a bit sad for those who froze their hatchlings before the change.

I'd be happy if

 

- the straight lines on the near back leg were fixed

- it's head could be shrunken a tad xd.png

- general tidying up of feet and details to make things clear

 

They're really pretty still. I love the unique tail and the color scheme.

I don't like or dislike the adults. They just feel..... very generic. I think one of the things I was most looking forward to with the old ones was how soft they felt- the lighter, more pastel palate. It was almost a lavender and a softer gold. These colors just feel really harsh and far more saturated. The fluffy tail also looks really out of place on an otherwise fluffless dragon.

 

That said, they're certainly not my least favorite sprites by any stretch, and I'll definitely make some pretty babbins next year. I think I'm just feeling down because the original hatchling sprites were so perfect, and now we'll never know what the end result would have been.

Well... I don't know about all the fuzz... But I LOVE the adults!

I think they look lovely! And I'm happy to see another really purple dragon besides the Purple Dragon xd.png

I LOVE THEM!

 

Thank you for the amazingly beautiful thingy! <3

This sums up my feelings pretty well, too.

While I did quite like the original sprites, I like the newer ones pretty well also - the colors are rich and the poses are interesting.

 

I do love the adult sprite. I really do!

Hatchies have seen some pretty big changes, so adults have probably changed too (loss of hooves and fluff if nothing else). Tbh I'm amazed there was even a back up set of sprites TO be used.

 

I know some holiday concepts were sent in literally a day before being used; I wonder if one of the two spriters for these guys couldn't be reached to sign off the permission? HMMM...

Actually I hadn't even considered the contract thing. Isn't one of them a minor??? How is that handled?

Would that really be an issue? I thought Shifu was a minor as well.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the released sprites had to be changed. I apologize for any inconvenience that may cause, though thankfully it has no chance to impact lineages, since all dragons are CB and none have bred yet.

Quoting for the new page.

 

Aw. I like the old ones better, especially the S1. Though, the newer S2 is more dynamic, and the new hatchlings are more dragon like. I prefer the sleeker look of the older ones though.

 

Plus, old s1 was funny.
