Fixing up my old breeds

First of all, I hope this is posted in the right section!

I am mainly making this topic to talk about the progress of the fixing of my old breeds. I have several breeds out there, and most of them has black outlines and also some of them has some bugs in their body data. The worst being my Porcelain Norns. But I am trying to recreate those with new and improved sprites.
But first I will focus on updating the other breeds.

The first ones that I have started working on is my Bry norns.
The outlines on them are more severe than I had thought:



The light green pixels will also become black inside the game so I am deleting those one by one on all sprites.

But so far the fix is coming along okay:



For now I have just replaced all the life stages with the adult head just to be able to test it. But most of the outline is gone now, though a new minor issue has appeared in the eyes. I'll fix that before I finish. It takes a long time deleting all the outlines though.. But I will not give up this time!

Thanks. :)

The progress is coming along nicely with these. I am almost done with the male head sprites. Next will be the resizing and changing the hue for the female sprites. The updated version may end up having different coloured female sprites though, because I'm not sure I can match the old re-hue I did when I first made these.

Both the male and female heads are now complete. They only need to be resized for the different life stages.
The same goes for the bodies.
I haven't tested them yet though, so I do not know if there will be issues with them.

And I did manage to make the females the same hue as the old version. The only difference is that they have a different eye colour, which isn't something I dislike. :)

The update to the Bry norns is almost complete now, sprite-wise. Next will be adding them to Spritebuilder and fighting the green spew issue.

On my list is still:

Snow Foxes
Dlaaks
Dól norns
Ancient Magma norns
Vidyanorns
Hanne's Egg sprites (not a breed, obviously) :P
And the dreaded Porcelain norns. They will be completely re-done.

Besides that I have several unfinished breeds based on the Bloodsong model. As mentioned before, one of them I had almost completed. But I think I will re-render all the sprites now that I have a better understanding of rendering.

I made some previews of them.

The Wooden norns:


And the Varg norns:
