I think you'll find that there's a pretty large amount of variation in what people do for 2D work. It's going to depend a lot on your specific medium: pixel art? Painted assets? Vectors?
Anyway, glad to have you on board. Drop by the IRC sometime, though don't be surprised if it takes a while for people to respond at first.
Nice work! Thanks for sharing.
I believe that the new slashing animation should be amenable to these weapons (one of the big reasons I wanted to add it even though it took a fair amount of extra time). It should be relatively easy to expand with more weapons, with the only real work being making the weapon sprite itself with a few directions and then sheeting it out.
Side-note: do you think it's time to finally delete his hidden posts? It's a bit annoying to see them all under 'awaiting approval.'
As a side note, I agree that there is a really unfortunate amount of utterly useles stuff in the gallery. There are definitely some 2D art submissions I would have deleted if I had the ability/authority to do so. We wanna be nice and inviting, but there should probably be at least some sort of limit to keep things sane...
We kicked his ass to the curb a while ago. I don't think he's a troll, in the sense that he is sincere in being a total jerk.
Great! Welcome, and pleased to make your acquaintance. Have a look around and make yourself comfortable.
You have only included two of the many necessary pieces of information to have a shot at getting a good response: you've specified medium and payment status. It's good that you have included those, but you need to give more details if you're going to have a shot. Things like: genre, style, resolution, why things already in the OGA gallery aren't adequate, etc.
Just make sure it's Surt you're crediting, not me :)
