Rent An Army

Hello! I'm DBY. I'm relatively very new to PW. I am, however, very interested in creative writing. I'm a small time writer in my spare time.
However, i'm quite bad at spriting and art in general. I do love the idea of picture wars, though.

I'm sure there are other people like me. I was hoping there would be a thread with a "Rent An Army" sort of thing going on. People offer up some of their armies for other, less gifted individuals such as myself, to use.

If not, maybe there will be one?

And if not again, maybe someone could oh so kindly, donate me an army that isn't crap. Like mine. No really, mine are awful. Dreadful, in fact.

Thanks!

-DBY.

You won't improve unless you put in effort. It isn't about where you start as much as it is where you end up.

Words of the wise, I had terrible sprites, now they ARE decent.

Re: Rent An Army

I sucked at it when I first started. No idea if I still do, but I assume I do because it makes me try harder to make better things every time.
My color army for example is MUCH better because I put forth the effort to improve.

Re: Rent An Army

Don't get me wrong, here, lads. I'm not slacking off. I'm still doing my own bits here and there, I do prefer vehicular space battles though, I seem to have a nack for those. While I work on my crappy soldiers, though, I was wondering if anyone could let me borrow an army to get me started into the world of PW. :)

I was gonna make some tutorials on how to sprite a (Slightly bad) humanoid shaped soldier...

Might just get on that.

Sounds very useful to me. I don't know where to begin with humanoids.

Re: Rent An Army

To be honest we actually did have something like this in the past where people would put sprites they didn't want any more, however in the end it came to the point where anyone who used free sprites from that topic was looked down upon so we ended up shutting it down.
Basically I think people won't really be that bothered if your sprites aren't amazing works of art as long as you try your best and make your posts interesting. You may still get a little whining in your army topic but really as long as you can tell two units apart that's enough for the game.
And anyway, you'll improve naturally over time. Starting with someone else's sprites won't make that process any faster and may well slow it down.

Thanks for the advide, Metal Chao.

Re: Rent An Army

Programs used: Paint.Net (I recommend it.)

Step 1. The TOOLS!

Possibly the most important tools needed to pw!

Step 1.5. The HEAD!

Start off simple, Heads can be hard, and easy to some!

Ill add more later...

Re: Rent An Army

Thanks for the replies.

I have heads down well enough. It's arms and legs I struggle with mostly. And then attaching them to the torso.
So it's sort of everything apart from the head.

Re: Rent An Army

All of my armies are (sadly) humans of different sizes. I'll see about uploading them sometime for you guys.
You'll also be free to use them, just recolor them or something.


Come to think of it, if you want ma hummiez armies, PM me.

Re: Rent An Army

I'm not sure why you would want my armies as all the humans in them are fairly terrible, but like Kommie, PM me if you want to use them.
