This is fantastic! Sounds like loads of fun.

I'm curious to what "possible colours mean". These are the same colours you can get clothing in, am I right? Meaning no flourecent pink or anything?

It's for the second most important item in the game, but I have no artistic skills whatsoever, so I figure I'd better write a little program that will create every single combination of pixels possible, and I can choose the one that looks the nicest.

Cute! And (this is no comment on Dora's adorable parrot), remember that it doesn't have to just be a parrot.

I'd guess in this case it would be sloops with names like "Colourful Parrotfish", "Artistic Parrotfish" and so on.

Blasted . . . me computer (with me nifty new Corel Painter program and tablet) is in the shop for repair. I guess I'll just have to resort to pencil and paper . . . and maybe hijacking me husband's computer with less than adequate software to do the trick. Of course . . I still can't draw worth squat but for a parrot I'll give it a shot. :)

Can someone who has a game parot please post a good screenshot model of it so that we have a place to start our drawings from?

Eags, about 2 weeks. Dang, lets see what I can do.

The parrots in game are multicolored. Really, it doesn't matter too much if it's not exactly like the ones in the game. It just would be nice if your image were like an image of your in-game parrot.

So you want it to go as a second parrot, I see.

After many attemps, I believe I have finally got the right parrot, so here is my entry:

Sheogorath's Parrot

And I have one noobish question relating to parrots, can familars get old and crumble to dust like other items?

Peax says, "With great pleasure."
Feegle says, "You guys DO know that it's the arguing, and not the poe or blood, that convinces me to come along on your pillages, right?"

Luckily for ye and me Aiziril, Nemo has approved all mediums of art, so I hope to come up with something, being the non-artistic pirate I am :)

Nemo when you say no screenshots, does that mean I can't include a tiny one of myself, or do I need to draw my wee pirate, too?
