Project Charart
This is a project discussion page, where a group of dedicated editors may come together and work towards their common goal.
For more information on projects, please see the community portal.
This is the Project Character Art Approvals Page
Place new character art for approval here.
Discussions should be routed to the discussion page, while all Art tweaks should be routed to the tweak page, and all Tweak nominations should be routed to the nominations page.

Here are some guidelines all users must comply with:

  1. Make sure to follow the guidelines.
  2. The limit is 60 images. If you exceed it, your image will be immediately declined.
  3. Your image is yours until it is archived, do not reserve a new one until yours has completed CBA and/or has been archived due to other matters.
  4. If your image has been declined due to the one month limit, you must wait two weeks to reclaim your image. This gives other users the chance to work on it if they wish.
  5. If your image has gone less than five (5) days without comments, please do not ask for comments or a CBA. It is common to go a couple consecutive days without comments before a CBA is set into place. To ask before the five day timespan has passed puts your image at risk of being declined.
  6. Please do not align your images! This messes up the structure of the page.

From what I've seen, you can ask for comments after 3-5 days have passed. As for the image, I think the stripe color is still too light and the tail stripes should be slightly thicker to cover more of the tail. --Boo!flower Human no more 00:13, September 30, 2019 (UTC)

Will do. Also, I meant if it is still too dark or if I made it too light --Wavetail (talk) 05:26, October 8, 2019 (UTC)

Try the following hexcodes for colours; #828282 for the base colour, #575759 for the stripes, and maybe #703F42 for the earpink - those should help match a little more? max s̨hout́ ̨at ͠th̢e ҉devi͞l͢ (07:52, 08/10/2019)

Reuploaded Moo (talk) 06:46, October 11, 2019 (UTC)

Colours are still off a little bit, and I think its mainly your shading tint that's doing it? I've repicked colours for your this time, instead of giving straight hexcodes. The nose should be black per the warrior, and the eyes need to be a paler blue than what you've got at the moment. Could you also define the shading depth a little - just add a second layer of shading that covers areas that will be darker like the "neck" and the underside of the tail and such - like this image. One last thing too, I promise, maybe smudge the earpink a little more so it's not sitting in such a straight line? max s̨hout́ ̨at ͠th̢e ҉devi͞l͢ (00:52, 13/10/2019)

Smooth the shading out a lot, but, also maybe use less? Sometimes white cats can be painfull with shading so by using less you can save yourself a lot of trouble. Also add some shading to >> that side of the cat, behind the tail max s̨hout́ ̨at ͠th̢e ҉devi͞l͢ (07:59, 08/10/2019)

The shading on the shoulder/above the foreleg needs to be smoothed out, and the facial shading expanded. --Boo!flower Human no more 18:29, October 13, 2019 (UTC)

Honestly, I think the facial shading is fine as is - but, the rest of Potato's comment still stands. Also, curve the shoulder/neck shading to our right if your light source is coming from our left?

Reuploaded I had only realized when I left my house that I missed the neck shading. Such fail. --Boo!flower Human no more 23:27, October 16, 2019 (UTC)

The base should be #333333 and the nose should be #200c0c. I'm not sure why you have the nose black here, but that shouldn't be the case. The texture is honestly just pure black, lightened and tweaked a bit with a pure white texture layer on very low opacity for the most part. Here's an unshaded picture of the head, and your eye color appears to be less orange than what I have here. Since you don't want the file, I'll give you this instead.   Shepard   ( 23:37, 10/16/2019 )
