Are we making timelines now? Can I get in on this?

Updated version of this. So before anyone starts complaining about how they're not any good or they'll never get better and yadda yadda, let me say this-

The only thing stopping you from getting better is you saying that you can't.

Honestly, I've been self-taught. Everything I've learned about spriting I've had to teach myself or pick up from other people's examples. And yet, I somehow came up with, well, this. I have no idea what I was thinking for half of these (especially the second one on the Asha part!), but I kept pushing on until I found things I was happy with. Then when I didn't like it anymore or thought it didn't fit her, things got changed and rearranged.

Basically, my lesson here is to keep practicing. Don't stick to using the same skills over and over - look at other people's sprites that you like and see how they do things. Then, adapt that into your own style, until you have something you can call your own. Like how Gata does hands? Great, look at him for ideas. Like how I do tails? Great, look at my characters for examples. And most importantly, do not give up. I cannot stand it when people give up because it means they're losing to themselves. Stop making excuses. Put your mind to it. You can do anything.

Sorry if I sound gushy, but that is one heck of a provoking inspirational speech there. I believe I speak for myself as well as Muddy when I say thank you.

Also, I REALLY need to update my sprites. They need fixing, and their timelines are only about 1-3 sprites long.
