Well I've got nothing against test-object polishing up his own version. I mean it's a community project, so I don't really mind if another version is chosen over mine in the end, but I don't see why I should stop work on it. The more to choose from the better... and as long as it helps in some way, it's worthwhile. Even if just as a basis for comparison. I don't agree at all with the "just let him do everything because he can". If we're going to take that attitude then why is anyone else even here? Sure he can do them all if he really wants to, but it shouldn't stop anyone else working on their own versions.
The leaves I only hastily chucked in there to make it look a bit different to the last image I posted . They only took a few seconds, just placeholders really. Hmm, yeah it's hard to tell what they actually are. I asked about that earlier but I'm not really convinced either way (since the pixels are so vague). It should be pretty easy to do two versions though. Although the peeling idea - that's new to me, and does sound interesting!
As far as the perfect cylinders go... I'm just not sure what to do with them. I decided to just leave them as they are for now while I do the other parts. I'll have to experiment a bit with the worn/imperfections thing though. Glad I'm not the only one who thinks it's slightly too thick! It's been kind of irritating me whenever I look at it.
I didn't fully intend for that gap to be there . It just sort of happened as I was drawing it. And then I couldn't be bothered fixing it up (but I'll be more inclined to now someone else has pointed it out!).
Oh that squishy thing... is that why the sprite looks like that? I couldn't figure out why it looked so large at the top. That might explain it... can't say I've ever really felt a vine before so I wouldn't know :S.
Thanks for your feedback .
