    Very cute, but it looks kinda weird that the guy's lips are bigger than the girl's.. Nice job regardless. Do you have a whole set of them to use as actual ingame sprites?

        HAHA, that is because in real life my boyfriend's lips are significantly bigger than mine. We based our characters off of our real appearances.
        And no, we just use the in game sprites for the characters. This was just for fun, if our characters did have portraits like the other villagers in the game.
        We do want to make sprites for our cats, though!

          Lol, it's okay. My boyfriend actually looks like that in real life.

            Just for some perspective, here's an old photo of us- http://i.imgur.com/IsONyda.png
            (his hair usually has more curl than that, but it is usually dyed pink.)

            Here's a more recent one, ignore the Sherlock cosplay. lol.

              Well, as long as your both happy and healthy in the relationship, unusual lips can be put aside, I'd think. That said, pixel art that size looks like it would be a paaaaaaain, especially with the amount of detail you put.

                  Well, the photo looks quite normal, but the sprite looks weird because the lips seem so much bigger.. Maybe cutting one pixel in height would make them look less.. inflated :)

                      Any chance that you might reveal what kind of program you used to make this for an aspiring pixel artist...? :proper:

                      Oh wait nevermind, it says that you used the paintbrush app, I'm stupid. :rofl:
