Greetings ! ~

[INCOMING WALL OF TEXT]

Was consideriŋ makiŋ some contents for
this fairly nice, quaint game.
Specifically, I'd like to inquire, if it's
not too much of a hassle, on ravestones.

I noticed each grave (minus 3 of 'em) is characterized by
some mild blurriŋ, as are many game assets (the hog, for instance).
I'm thus assumiŋ most things are digitally drawn rather than
"strictly sprited" pixel-by-pixel, & that graves were likely drawn on a
canvas of a certain size, then shrunk to their current 32x32 frames.

As the kind of fussy who spreads marmelade as a
perfectly uniform layer(ba-dum-tss?), I feel the urge ask :

-Which editiŋ program was used for their makiŋ?
Gimp2? Paint.net? Other? Could I also kindly ask
which specific version of the program was used?
(either dev-made, player-made turned official or unofficial too)

-What size were the canvas graves were beiŋ worked on
before beiŋ shrunk to 32x32 px-sized frames?
Also, which brushes were used on which size settings?

-Dulcis in fundo... did anyone happen to have
the exact palette used for the Statue.png grave?
(was planniŋ a thing... then again, could
go w/ 2 other palettes instead, no big deal)

T.y.v.m. indeed for your time & patience,
have a good day/night!

...oh, and... I'm not quite the spriter either ;)

Most of the sprites are rasterized SVGs created in Inkscape.

Eh-heh, Guess I'll try figuring out inkscape.

Thanks for the bit of info!

Yes, most graves started out as vector graphics (SVG). Inkscape is usually used to make SVG files, but it's not the only program that can do that.
And after that, they were exported to PNGs.

Unfortunately, we don't have the SVG files of most graves anymore, but only for a few.

Many thanks, fellow!~

Hopefully I'll at least release
one or two ravestones these weeks,
work & close one taking my
computer permitted! ~
