    Eh, it's really more a process of cleaning it up if needed. Vector files can be easier to edit so if there needs to be some large-ish changes made to it there might be a need to vector the thing.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    So that's a yes?

    I just fear that most contributors here still are not aware of that process, and think of something they made in Photoshop as a "final" version that shouldn't be worked on anymore, when it's really just the concept where to <I>start </I>the real final version from.

    It isn't always the case, but yeah, you could think of it kinda like that.

    Well, my guys aren't as polished as you Chicken, but let me show the wips I did before (I havent touch them since the other day) with that mockup.

    Of course, they are missing some shades and shadows, but this will show how they look with the enviroment and characters.

    Awesome.

    For the record, just so we have all the artwork made for the "creatures", here's a cleaned up version of the penguin from the European cartridge:

    I just got around to doing something about the shading on the cheeks. Is this enough?
