New Sailor Generator by SailorXv3 New Sailor Generator by SailorXv3
What can I say?
I was tempted to commission !DracheaRannak to draw me a new sailor generator base and just do the coding and somebody else had the same idea! Now I'm just floored by the beauty of this generator. I wish I knew how to program in flash... Seems so much more elegant!

My first reaction was: Wow, no need for me to update SailorXv2 anymore... But then I realized that this generator is missing quite a few options that SailorXv2 has (and vice versa) so I suppose SailorXv2 is not obsolete yet.

But looking at these beautiful graphics makes me want to start from scratch again... My art has improved so much again since I started SailorXv2 that I'm beginning to see lots of flaws...

EDIT [April 2013] I have decided that I will move on to SailorXv3. Not any time soon so hold your questions, but especially with the new anime coming soon I will certainly enjoy it. And I hope to be starting a programming course soon so the next SailorX release will be exactly what I want it to be! Multiple poses and expressions, princess gowns and most of all better artwork! :)

I noticed this since you added an update to it. I'm actually fine with you moving onto SXv3, and I'm hoping we'll see some of the features that remained "grayed out" in v1 and v2. I hope you don't do it in Flash, though...like I said in my original comment, I find DD&DR's doll "pretty" but confusing, and Flash these days just seems to be an outmoded form of doing anything on the Web.

I think the forthcoming anime has got all of us fans excited for new and revived creations.

I feel I must insert one thing here: whatever else you make, I love the way everything in the current one is so pixelated; I mean, there's a clear pixel-perfect delineation between each item. I would NEVER be able to have as much fun with it if the outlines were soft.

Also I use both yours and the Flash one, and love them both, but I use them for different purposes. When I need to copy something from the show, I go to it. When I need to have crazy fun making someone else's sailor or, y'know, Sailor Cosmos, I come here. Sometimes I gank the wings from Drachea's to stick them on here. I like both of them, but they have different uses.

That is very interesting! I'm not sure whether I'll be sticking to the pixelated edges. In all honesty, I feel looks a little dated. I can however see how that would be useful for some purposes. I won't be able to decide until I get started. I suspect I'll be drawing the artwork within an HTML5 editor though. Pretty sure the artwork edges will therefore be antialiased. :(

I will keep in mind to include a transparent background. That way you could import your transparent image into Photoshop and the likes, protect the transparency, and then change colors or whatever you want that way. Adding other stuff like wings into the background would be easy that way too!

Wah! But PIXEEEEELS...ah well, I can always keep using this one for complex stuff. :)

The transparent background thing hasn't been an issue for me. I just screenshot it, then color-select the background color with 0 threshold to remove it. Voila!

Oh wow, I'd be so looking forward to that!
Too bad DR traced most of his art, his concept were great, but tracing art is such a shame

Actually, many professional artists save time by first generating a good reference picture (Photo or 3-D modeling software), and then tracing over it. I personally don't think there's much wrong with it, as long as you create your own poses. The pose has to be made specifically for your purpose. If you take the pre-existing pose then you are bound to make a compromise somewhere because it wasn't specifically made for your purpose. And if you take the picture from the Internet, then of course there's the danger of another picture or multiple pictures out there using the exact same pose yours!

I used to create my poses and 3-D modeling software, to then trace over them. Nowadays I still create the reference pose in the program, but then I redraw it manually giving it more energy and more organic feel.

I have plenty of poses for SailorXv3 already! :)

Haha! Maybe I'll have a poll once I feel ready to start the wirk. Might be sooner than I thought. It seems that anything I learn about programming and graphics my brain instantly translates into SailorX possibilities of use! :D
