(#l2phrpa) @email@example.com Yeah, I scaled the eye down a bit and probably prefer this style of smaller, mostly black eyes too, which is why I use them in almost everything I draw.
I still think the other style might look better in some cases, like when Difro, the artist on the site I linked uses those eyes, because they always animate their art and need eyes that blink. For these animations, the bigger eyes just work better.
I also like the hint of color they have, because I always wanted to give my inigamis eyes a hint of blue, to make him a little different from other shiba colored four leged inugamies. I know - probably not necessary, as he’s already rather specific, but it’s also a bit of a reference to an old slavic/pegan god Chors, who was in some videogames depicted as having glowing blue eyes.
(#w3gw4mq) @firstname.lastname@example.org There’s something about the client on this screenshot, that immediately makes my mind got to Temple OS. Rightfully so, you have clearly not surpassed the god given limit of 16 colors per operating system.
I thought it’d be interesting to remake an older pixelart, that was way too “inspired” by Difros (https://difro.carrd.co/) work, to match with one of my friends profile picture at the time drawn by Difro.
Now I wanted to return to it and try making all the changes I regretted not making back than and in general make it more than a somewhat edited copy of someone elses work.
*They still look somewhat similar, because some changes were already made in the first edit from 2021. It was never just a re-color of someone elses art.
I can recommend Ashampoo WinOptimizer, because it’s an old classic, trusted by users and companies for many years. It’s paid, but the devs are friendly and are always giving away free licenses for older versions of it at https://chip.de .
The only downside is that (as the name suggests), it only works with Windows.
It did and probably still does have a free Android version, but last time I checked, it was very basic. If your Android phone doesn’t already come with an optimizer app installed, I’d probably recommend SD Maid instead. It’s free, but a small one time donation is required to unlock all its features.
Sadly I don’t know if there are any good trustworthy optimizer apps for other operating systems, but maybe someone else does and can join this conversation.
