There are only two graphics here which are actual originals of mine, so you don't have to give any credit to me unless I specifically say that it is an original of mine.

http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G510.bmp
This is a merging of the "Erika" and "Widow Queen" graphics. Both from Spidweb.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G521.bmp
Heavily edited Widow Queen from Spidweb.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G526.bmp
Recolor (or maybe it's the earlier version?) of above.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G528.bmp
Edit off that Adlerauge fellow from Canopy, by Necris Omega.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G529.bmp
Edit of the edit by Necris Omega. I sure am lazy, huh?
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G530.bmp
An original by me, but inspired by some anime picture whose location was forgotten soon after I made the graphic. I'm sure TM is crying about the kanji.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G535.bmp
This, however, should make him feel a bit better. By Intelligent Systems, somehow appropriated by CO Raptor, and then edited into BoA format by me.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G536.bmp
From a different source, but presumably gotten in the same way. From Intelligent Systems to someone named Knucho to me to you.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G560.bmp
An edit from the original "Blademaster" graphic from Spidweb.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G561.bmp
See above.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G562.bmp
See above.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G580.bmp
My lowest point in graphics history. An original, I can't blame this on someone else.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G591.bmp
A splicing of the "Vampire" and "Imp" graphics from Spidweb.

Thanks to Aran, whose webspace I took without asking. :P

The widow queen/erika splice is a good idea, but in the front-facing graphics, the erika part is a bit too far out from the rest of the spider.

The green worm spider thing is really creepy looking, but there's absolutely no contrast.

The fucshia widow queen is absolutely horrible-looking. Like, it's a bad graphic. Sorry.

I like the fencer, although watch out-- some of its legs in the attacking poses may be cut out if it exceeds the lower boundary of a tile. Also, some of the edits to this one appear a bit to "patchy".

The next one... What, exactly, is he DOING? Like, is he launching his fist?

The kanji fellow... He looks nice, but I'm not sure why the kanji are necessary. Oh well.

The first Paladin doesn't exactly differentiate between which directions its facing at any one time.

The second paladin's rear-facing ready graphics are odd-looking, but that can't really be helped.

The bladesmasters look a little, well... Their robes and shields seem to have lost all contrast and shading.

The weird assassin fellow seems interesting, but his death is horribly cheap. Sorry. :P

The "impire" is interesting and not too bad looking (although the wings seem a little high), although it too lacks detail or contrast.

...

Okay. Here's a bunch of graphics I've been keeping. (And if I don't say where they're from, just assume that they're edited from Spidweb graphics.) We'll see how this goes:

Asphalt roads. The first of those graphics is intended to be a section of sidewalk. These are original.

An archmage. A colorshift, but I'm using it anyway.

An automaton. Whether it merely whacks folks with fire or shoots out beams of fire is up to you, I suppose.

A blue bladesman. I intended for this guy to be a CO of the blue army fellows (see below).

Blue infantryman
Blue ranger
Blue swordsman
These three make up a color-coded army. The infantryman and archer are from Avernum, but the swordsman is by Zeeqon. And on the other side of the fence is the red army:
Red infantryman
Red ranger
Red swordsman

A camouflaged bladesman. If monsters didn't make "oh look, I see you now!" noises, this fellow might almost sneak up on you.

Chief Licgan from Emerald Mountain.

Diagonal stairways.

A duelist, and this one's an original (whoops).

General Luthair from Mad Ambition. He's the General graphic taken from Fire Emblem (although it was a good deal of work converting him).

Mauler the Ursag. Again, a color shift, but it makes him look dangerous. Hopefully.

A military gal in her ceremonial garb.

The same woman from above, except unarmed this time.

(Pretend I put the Nephil Nomad from Mad Ambition here. The one with the sword. Currently, Geocities absolutely will not for any reason allow me to upload this file.)

Nephil ranger from Mad Ambition. The horse comes from Avernum 3, but the nephil itself is by Frahhamn.

A noble. This is Eliwood from Fire Emblem 7.

A crazy-powerful archer. This is the Warrior (using his bow) from Fire Emblem 6-8.

A purple archmage. This is a color shift of Stareye's archmage graphic.

A regal guard. Intended for ceremonial (but still functional) purposes.

An aristocrat with a shotgun, a simple edit of a graphic by Jayne Holt.

A sink.

A Spere from Emerald Mountain.

Spiegelbrecher from Canopy.

Televisions. Sure, these are edited, but not by much.

Vile magister. This one's original.

A warg rider.

A water elemental.

Wihcaser from Emerald Mountain.

A worm. This one's taken from GF3.

A young noble. This is Roy from Fire Emblem 6.

Update: one more! Hooray for excessive amounts of blood. Its outdoor graphics might possibly be the ugliest little blobs on Earth, but it might also be called my best work.

http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G545.bmp
Ripped by Grim and Bonzai.

EDIT: Ah, Luthair. Now I remember what made me start converting FE graphics in the first place. If you plan on doing any more FE graphics, TM, I'd like to know so that I don't do the same ones.

Your warrior's legs in the rear-facing stance will be cut off by BoA.

If someone needs it, I'll fix it. Otherwise...

EDIT: But I had to clear up the stupidity with the red Paladin, specifically his death phase. Before, it had bits of paladin pictures which I had thought I might use. Now, however, it has the paladin in a normal resting stance for half the time and then reared up in the air for the other half of the time. http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G536.bmp
Another EDIT:
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G546.bmp
Mounted common swordsman. Made by Intelligent Systems, ripped by Grim.

Yet another EDIT:
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G548.bmp
Swordswoman in blue, ripped by Grim.

Possibly the last EDIT before I go to sleep:
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G549.bmp
The kind of character I was going for when I edited 560. Ripped by Grim. He sure sounds important.

Hey, TM actually made a good original graphic for once! Bravo! Seriously, it's good! (except the dying animation)

Looking at that swordsman again, I realize how lame it looks.

Which swordsman?

Also, two new graphics. One by Grim and one by Bonzai. Ugly death sequence on the spellcaster and the gargoyle is missing half its combat and normal graphics, but that's what happens when you try to steal non-existent graphics.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G558.bmp
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G559.bmp

EDIT: Another. By Grim. Huh, who saw that coming? Anyway, I think I'm getting better. Only the outdoors graphics and the death sequence are bad.

I think the idea is that the vile magister is incorporeal. See the red glowy eyes still winking out at you as its clothes and weapons fall into a heap?

I just keep on going, huh? Okay, I caved in and half-fixed the axeman graphic. I also ported a few more while I was at it.

I know these don't work well in BoA, but oh well.

http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G564.bmp
Color inverse of the earlier spellcaster guy. It's hard to see.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G565.bmp

EDIT: New swordsman on horse. By Grim. Whoo-hoo.
http://stuff.ermarian.net/rakshasi/G566.bmp
That brings the total of similar-looking horsemen up to three.

That means that the total of mounted units is up to six.

Have you checked these graphics to make sure there's no white in them? BoA interprets white as a transparent colour, and some of those highlights look pretty white.

I haven't checked all of them, but I know that the guy with the axe shows up fine (in terms of coloring; his foot is, as TM pointed out, cut off). I figure that if one is okay, then there's no reason for any of the others to be different.

Some sort of ornately dressed spellcaster - perhaps something like a Cardinal, except in Ermarian. The death sequence is boxed in by BoA. By Bonzai.

Bump for real thread content.

So does anyone at all plan to use these? Is the style too weird? Are the colors ugly? Is it because of all of the errors? Or is it just that no one needs these graphics because the few designers are wrapping up their scenarios now?

A lot of these graphics are in a strange that's really incompatible with most BoA graphics (most notably, the rips from Fire Emblem and such).

Going way back, though, I like the edited Widow Queen graphic, and I might have to use it in an upcoming project, as I'm going to need some new monsters. Also, I love that gargoyle, and I want to use it somehow.

Come to think of it, I've made and fixed some graphics, so I might have to post them soon. Specifically, I've fixed a lot of the imported Geneforge trees, and made them look a heck of a lot better (please, please, please... no more submitting graphics as jpegs! It ruins the quality and adds noise!).

I like the vampire graphic that Enraged Slith reposted, and want to use it in "Twilight Vale", my next project.

The thing is, I'd have to alter it - the red Japanese(?) writing is unneccessary. Other than that, it's perfect.

Perhaps it's just a name change.

EDIT: Right, here's the editing I've done, rendered into PNG format.

These trees are originally by Joaquin Soto, according to the Louvre, but they were in a very, very messy JPEG form. They've been fixed, colored a little better (in my opinion). Also, icons 1 and 12 in the sheet were fixed up because they looked too bare.

These are the same trees, just resized and combined to make good outdoor tree clusters. I've only done it for those five or so trees, since they're the only trees I expected to use in Embers of Rebellion. I might do more, if there's call for it.

Terraces to replace cliffs, for a look that I believe Lazarus wanted in his scenario. They're a bit too tall, but that can be easily fixed. Really, it's just that cliff with bits shifted around and copied.

Ruins, including a burnt tree that's adapted from Joaquin's stuff. Basically just bits of buildings laid over rubble terrain.

A trash heap. Simple, just items and terrain tossed into a lump. Another crafted with Lazarus' scenario in mind.

My original BoA scenario was entitled "The Deomn Stone". It was big, bulky, and poorly concieved. So, I decided to get some needed practice, and made AGB. Now, I've found out all my old plans for TDS, and redrew large parts of it.

The outdoors, for instance, has been cut immensely, and the number of towns reduced too. I'm also going to make it more technical than before. Probably the biggest change is that there is now no "stone". Hence the name change. Think of "Twilight Vale" as "The Demon Stone v2".

As for the graphics: I think a lot of them are simply gorgeous. It's just that anime characters wouldn't work (I don't think) in my scenario. I'm going to try though!

For those of you who like color swatches, the Silent Assassin and I present a few of the graphics from his scenario (in progress ad infintam).

These are all customizations of original blades graphics, with exception of the archer, who was originally thrown together by NecrisOmega and then hue shifted and chair swapped by myself.

IMAGE(http://photos-839.facebook.com/ip006/v34/66/76/141300885/n141300885_30209839_5931.jpg)

and this one is just a preview of the prototypes for a few of the characters from said scenario.
These, oddly enough, are also customizations of original blades graphics.

Bump.

I decided that BoA needs more Catholic clergy. So here we go.

A monk, color-shifted from a Spidweb graphic.

A priest, which varys very little from the original graphic by Stareye except that it's been blinged out.

Well, I was thinking about my idea of a Catholic priest. I google-imaged "Catholic priest" and found many pictures of white men in black dress-thingies. I was thinking about editing pictures like this one, ones which are on the public domain and so free to be edited for my own use. But then, while I was looking for a good palette for the monk, I noticed that Stareye had already made a graphic that was pretty much the same as what I would make. But he didn't look priestey enough, so I gave him a shiny necklace.

Also, here's a link to the Archbishop graphic by Jayne Holt.

The Archbishop-- you mean, Klugmann from Canopy?

EDIT: By the by, a priest would less have the gold necklace, and more the white collar.
