    I was working on the Fat Chocobo mounts from FF14 but I don't think it's possible without it looking off.
    There is just too much fat and not enough space to fit it all.
    I'm not going to show you my progress with it because it doesn't look that great.

    Right now I'm working on a Carbuncle. Not sure which version I want to go with yet. It's either going to be the FF14 or FF15 version.

    This is the early rough sketch of the one from FF15.

      Could you make a cutesy chinese crested horse-dog?

        I'm sorry to disappoint you but you're better off asking Dawn or maybe Tokiri for stuff like that.
        I only have interest in working on animals that don't exist.

          Ok...sorry... I just thought I'd ask.

          I mean, cats actually exsist.

            Neko Atsume cats specifically don't.

                When I saw that you did Amaterasu I got super excited. Especially since there was a menu icon too. I really love her and she looks amazing! Then I noticed she was a dog replacement. :cry: I really choose the wrong starting pet. There are so many great pet mods but many of the ones I like the most are for the dog.

                  Yeah sorry about that. She is a wolf so it didn't make sense to make her a cat.

                  Anyways you can have both a cat and a dog if you wanted.
                  Check out this thread and follow the instructions:

                    Your mods are incredible! I have Gozer and Amaterasu on my farm now and couldn't be happier.

                    I realize that you're super busy, but I have a suggestion. Could you make a green version of Carbuncle too, more like the classic appearance?
                    Either way, I look forward to seeing your final result. Please keep up the excellent work! <3

                      That looks AMAZING. I know you feel like you bit off more than you can chew, and I know the feeling, but I think you should be proud. It's really hard to keep the little details in such a small space such as her painter tail, red markings and ink like fluff on her elbow. I'm most impressed with the markings that no matter what angle she's facing, they still look the same, and I learned that's really hard to do with pixel art.
                      So in my book, amazing job.

                        I used Amaterasu's tail animation as a reference. Don't know if I'll keep that or make a new animation.

                        Well that depends.
                        Are you looking for a recolor but with a modified Head, ear, and tail like this? (this was done rather quickly just to illustrate what I'm talking about)
                        Or are you asking me to completely resprite it? As in changing the body shape, feet size, arm length, and make him stand on his feet.

                        I'm glad you like it.

                          I just meant a recolor, with or without minor alterations. That looks incredible, by the way! <3

                              I have the walking animations sketched out and currently working on the sitting animation.

                              Might have to do a second pass on both the walking north and south animation though.

                                This is what I have so far.
                                I've changed the ear animations slightly to raise more upward.

                                I'm trying to experiment with something different for the paw licking animation.
                                I replaced the paw licking with his gem glowing.
                                Don't know if it looks any good, but still experimenting.
                                Atm I'm working on the lying down sprites.
                                Probably would of been done with this sooner but it's been a hectic week.

                                  Personally, I think the glowing gem looks great. :up: Wonderful job!

                                    My first idea was to also have light particles swirling around him, but it was such a hassle to animate.

                                      Took about a week but I'm finally done.
                                      I really need to figure out a way to speed up my process. I'm taking way too long to make these.

                                      Please do let me know if there are any errors that I've missed.
                                      I haven't slept that well in the past few days so I might not have caught everything.

                                        I absolutely adore your Amaterasu and Carbuncle, they're beautiful. The animations are done so well too!

                                          Updated: Carbuncle Gray v1.1


                                          Row 2 & 4:
                                          - Slimmed down front and back legs
                                          - Altered body shading slightly
                                          Row 5:
                                          - Fixed wrong eye color on frame 4
                                          Row 7:
                                          - Fixed wrong eye color on frame 1 & 2
                                          Row 8:
                                          - Changed color of closed eyes on frame 1 & 2
                                          - Fixed missing gem glow on frame 1-2
                                          - Slimmed down front legs on frame 3 & 4
                                          - Fixed wrong eye color on frame 4

                                          Row 2 Comparison:

                                          Left is 1.0, Right is 1.1
                                          Carbuncle_Gray_v1.0_Row2.gif Carbuncle_Gray_v1.1_Row2.gif
                                          Top is 1.0, Bottom is 1.1

                                          The changes are minor so I don't think many people will even notice.
                                          But since I've stared at it for hours those things were bugging me.
