@ request threads:
I too find it fun to viciously rip something and/or someone apart, but I personally condone it only if people are pointing fingers at the right thing.
I don't get why request threads of all things are having a big steaming dump being dropped on them. They require as much effort as any other thread, but some of y'all keep downplaying them. Just because they're not a release of some sort doesn't mean there's less value or creativity in them. Knowing how to draw art or knowing ASM is a skill that people find value in and it takes hard work and dedication to learn these things - I consider that difficult learning process to be preparation and prior effort. Not to mention it's probably fucking exhausting to actually finish all those requests in time. I RESPECT that shit. Let me show you some talented people who deserve their own thread like anyone else who works hard at what they do:
: zek's 2 art threads in C3 summer 2018 where he drew roughly 50~ characters (link 1
) (link 2
: erik's ASM request thread in C3 winter 2019, with 20~ completed sprite and uberASM requests (link
: miku's art thread in C3 summer 2018 - drew 40~ characters (link
(I'd list more - and there's a lot more - but I'm sure you get the point)
I think Maarfy phrased it better

Coding sprites isn't a walk in the park. So to code this many sprites - with this level of polish - in so short a time - in a request format - is just nuts.
