Error 1:This is obvious;The player must be an inch shorter than Flaire,cuz look at their heads' positions!Totally different height,and since they should be about the same age,I find that a bit abnormal. ._.

Error 2:What happened to the shadows of Flaire,Professor Peach and the guy beside her?GASP THEY HAVE NO SHADOWS THEY ARE - Barrels. xD Yeah they're pretty much ghosts without a shadow.

Error 3:Flaire's VS Mugshot is missing her dye of yellow hair in her side bangs and back hair(eh random names for them,kay?I'm no hair specialist).Also,in case you didn't notice,the US VS sign isn't actually supposed to have that dot overlapping the S,only the Japanese one does.But it doesn't really show much,so meh. =P Also(optional error),Flaire's VS Mugshot would actually look better if the VS Sprite wasn't cropped like that,in my opinion.Or you could just slightly crop her lower to draw more of the upper portion of her head...
So that's all! Lavapho's new sprite kinda reminds me of Tails Doll with that empty creepy emotionless look...Any chance you could change it back to the old sprite?I won't have nightmares then... x0 So yeah that's the end,so bye.

Well, I'll respond in the order you pointed out the errors in.

Flaire's overworld was done by a friend, who has his own style. Be that as it may, Flaire IS older than the player by two years. Plus, she's getting a redesign; no need to stress over that. Her VS mugshot is pretty much accurate to her new design; she no longer has the flame streaks on her hair and I've toned her hair down to where it flows naturally. I also may give her more of her head, but I have restrictions on the mug size.

Regarding the shadows... Anabelle is the only one to have that honor. None of the characters aside from the heroine currently have shadows. I manually added that in just to see if it would change my view on it. I'm manually added the shadows in one by one, and it'll take some time. As for the VS sequence, I'm experimenting with it. I personally like the period, but, if people comment on it, I'll remove it or change the style.

As for Lavapho's sprite, I rather like the updated look and a good friend of mine took the time out of his busy day to sprite it. I don't want to throw it away, I guess you'll have to get used to it.

Anyways it's a great update Elaynii, I love the little descriptions you have before choosing your starter. Good luck, and hopefully we'll be seeing more updates soon!

Thanks, Conan! :'D

More updates should be a bit more regular now that I have some inspiration to actually work on the game itself; I'm bogged down with commissions right now, but, I should be able to get some work in.
