Once upon a base

Post by Wayuki » Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:00 pm

I was going through my old base archive, thinking what to do with it. The file was huge (10 megs!) and eating up bandwidth like no other. :oops:

So, I decided to not have every pose in every skin tone anymore. Instead, I just have one skin tone for all the poses and differently colored heads for easy recoloring. Also, instead of having every arm pose with every leg pose, I provide partial poses wherever I can. That way you can splice together your own pose combinations.

As I was editing the stuff, I couldn't help but notice how HIDEOUS everything was, LOL! So I ended up recoloring all the base sets. And as I was applying higher contrast palettes, a lot of terrible pillow shading emerged, as well. :shock:

Before I knew it, I had completely redone 6 base sets!

So here they are, maybe they are usable now, hehe. Aside from the fact that some are totally weird.
Oh yeah, and the rest of the archive you can get from my site. It's only 1.4 megs now! 8)

And here are the old ones for comparison. Don't use these low contrast, pillow shaded abominations, SRSLY! :shock:

*squeaks at such a high pitch that even the dogs are howling* OMFGosh I love the revamp on these! I mean, I loved the old ones too don't get me wrong, but these are incredible!
Are the skin palettes you'd used available on your site for recoloring? And I'm with Daenerys, I too would love to see more of you ;). Hoping also this is a come back post.

I haven't laid out the palettes in strips, is that inconvenient? I figured you could just select them from the heads themselves, especially since the palette is different for every set. There's usually only about 6 shades or so for the skin, it should be fairly easy... I think. :lol:

Nope, no inconvenience. I'm actually working on a little project now and yeah, I pulled the colors from the heads (gosh, that sounds wrong on so many levels LOL :D) so no problems there. I was just wondering was all. *huge smile* I'm just loving these revamps! <3333

I really love your bases! I like the silly faces on the second to last set that you posted! :)
Thanks for posting all of these. I don't think the originals are so bad, though!
