Cute but... weird.

thanks...........i like it.........so much that i replaced one of the bomy sprites that i have downloaded just from playing with this one

FatherDante

Hehe- so, when you're playing, do you ever see your own bomy then?

03-11-2001, 04:48 PM
I... Don't... Like... It...

FatherDante

Shh! TrueHeat, that's rude! :P

I think it's a cat with a shell on it's back. So that would make for a... Hmm.... Tortpuss?

Errr, for starters, you don't have the sprite movement where the bomy is half hiding in its shell.

Second, the bottom of the sprite movement "hide" should be flat, not round.

Other than that, its fine. :)

FatherDante

uh.... you heard the expert. Have at fixing it.

I'm not too fond of the disign, but you did a pretty good job of pulling it off. Once you correct those errors that Lycia pointed out I see no reason why it wouldn't be added

Seems to weird to go on the server to me... but hey, I'm not the one taking graphics, so who knows?

No offense,G Yoshi, but it kinda looks like a McDonalds happy meal toy that managed to wedge itself into a fortune cookie. I couldn't really do any better, but it's a start ;)

I'm sorry, but that bomy makes me laugh!

FatherDante
03-12-2001, 12:27 AM
At least you're honest, Pago. I don't think it's that bad... just too goofy looking.

Lycia
03-12-2001, 01:15 AM
Hey! Give him credit! Its not easy coming up with a new shape and design for a new bomy.

I know that my Ambient design took me forever to create because I had to create every single cell on her shell.

3 weeks of work on that. Eeek. >.<

Zulithe
03-12-2001, 01:21 AM
I actually do think its good, I just don't like the idea of a cat-bomy but it is original and the gfx work isn't that bad!

G_yoshi
03-12-2001, 04:13 AM
well.......if you dont like what i did......then i'll show you what it was before i added the shell

http://home.earthlink.net/~skittles00/Images/bomy_old-neko.png

i had made it before g2k1 was up.......i made it because antago asked me to.......sort of........when i showed it to him.....he liked it, but said to add a shell and change the feet

Hawk
03-12-2001, 12:32 PM
it's actually pretty good.

Crono Illusion
03-12-2001, 01:53 PM
The bomy looks good, just a little scary...

G_yoshi
03-12-2001, 01:55 PM
thanks hawk.....i think so too.

Lycia
03-12-2001, 06:06 PM
Meanies. =(

03-12-2001, 07:01 PM
I like the original version without the shell best G Yoshi.

greezi
03-12-2001, 07:03 PM
They are both nice. Who liked my bomy?

Lycia
03-12-2001, 07:09 PM
Ambient owns you.

grim_squeaker_x
03-12-2001, 07:37 PM
I should finish my head0.gif bomy once ^^

Lycia
03-12-2001, 07:46 PM
Errrrrr, how would that work?

grim_squeaker_x
03-12-2001, 07:53 PM
I'm just editing bomy birce to show a head0.gif in place of the palce where the eyes are ^^

Lycia
03-12-2001, 07:56 PM
Sounds confusing.

grim_squeaker_x
03-12-2001, 08:06 PM
It is, but it can certainly be fun to see if I make it good enough.

Lycia
03-12-2001, 08:08 PM
Good luck.

Zulithe

Is the Ambient bomy back online? Has it been fixed? I liked that one!

Lycia
03-13-2001, 02:09 AM
Stefan said that the server screwed up a week or so ago, and that Ambient disappeared. I find that odd how the others remained and she was gone. :(

Yes, I will quote myself.


I want my bomy back. =(

I didn't work on her for 3 weeks to not have it on the server.

There's a Nok-nok shell Bomy?

Ert?

Lycia
03-13-2001, 02:20 AM
WTF is a nok-nok?

Tyhm
03-13-2001, 02:45 AM
Read the subject line.
Koopa Paratroopa.
Also-winged DryBones, Flying Turtle, Red Shell with Wings.

SSmutz

When I saw the Ambient on a website, the first thing that came to my mind was "red flying koopa from Mario Bros."

Lycia
03-13-2001, 02:51 AM
Okay, and?

BruceLee2000
03-13-2001, 02:56 AM
wow..before i posted this Lycia had been the last to reply to every topic on the first page and about half on the second.

SSmutz
03-13-2001, 02:56 AM
and, we're not sopposed to have anything taken from copyrighted material (such as Mario Bros.) on graal. i think thats the reason it hasn't gone back online

Zulithe
03-13-2001, 04:34 AM
It looked different enough not to pose any copywrite conflicts I think. How can a shell with wings be copywrited, thats about the only core resemblance.

SSmutz
03-13-2001, 05:19 AM
to be more specific: a red turtle-like shell with white wings

Zulithe
03-13-2001, 06:16 AM
Even then, I see no reason why it would be an issue. There things on graal that are bending the rules further than that bomy did, I hope it is reuploaded.

[EDIT] --> fixed minor typo :p

Tyhm
03-13-2001, 06:39 AM
Dammit people, that's no excuse!

The fact that there are other copyrighted images on the server does NOT mean that it's alright to add MORE copyrighted images to the server! I mean, crap, where's the logic in THAT?!?
If the threat of Graal getting sued exists, INCREASING the threat is still a BAD thing. Saying "Oh, but the threat existed before I got here" doesn't make it right!

Yes, there are still some Yoshi heads, probably. They will be removed. Probably the Mario Heads and Link Heads and Pikachu Heads floating around as well, they too will be removed. This does not mean you can sneak on a Trunks head or a copyrighted MIDI!

I mean, come on people, it's not that hard a concept!

Fai
03-13-2001, 06:46 AM
Does head10.gif have a chance of getting removed? :\

Lomgren
03-13-2001, 07:58 AM
If Ambient looks like something from Mario, what does Khyle look like in your opinion? (the bomy in my sig)

Fai
03-13-2001, 08:51 AM
He looks like........ Franklin.

Zulithe
03-13-2001, 09:13 AM
Lomgren, it somewhat resembles a Goomba from Mario, BUT not much more than Ambient resembles a koopa.

A red shell and white wings is not enough to constitute copyright infringement if you ask me. I don't think obvious resemblances should be allowed on Graal but things like those two bomies are different enough that they do not pose a problem.

Things like the Zelda heads and DRZ heads are different. They are created specifically to look exactly like the inspiration, but the ambient bomy body was not and does not.

SSmutz
03-13-2001, 02:29 PM
look at the ambient png file (or how ever you spell it). and look at a red flying koopa, then compare:
1. both have red shell with small plates (the little sections on the shell)
2. both have white wings
3. both shells have a while ring.lining on thir edges
4. both have orange feet

and that Khyle bomy looks nothing like a goomba to me, goombas are small brown mushrooms with feet and eys (and sometimes a mouth)

also, i agree with, Tyhm, just cuz theres already copyrighted material online, doesnt meant here should be more.

i just realized, from what i understand, Lycia made the bomy, so how would you know that it wasn't created to seem like a red flying koopa or something similar?

Lycia
03-13-2001, 02:38 PM
Ambient isn't a copyrighted image. If I had made it to completely resemble the Koopa Paratroopa, then I could understand it, but since I've changed a lot of its looks, shape and so forth, I don't see a possible copyright infringement.

I know a lot about copyrights. I run a graphics business.
