A strange request (art trade)

on: March 27, 2017, 08:12:18 pm
So, bit of an odd one here, wasn't quiiiite sure where to put this.
Essentially, I'm working on a game right now (first one!) but am having trouble meeting the character to the vision in my head.
I'm still learning muscle groups and how to stylize certain attributes right now, and unfortunately the main character falls pretty squarely into my weakest bits.

In essence, she's supposed to be kind of a suspicious-looking mercenary type of woman, someone who doesn't really care about her appearance too much and would probably be slightly unpleasant to be around.

Problem is, I only managed to get her looking right in her movement sprites, seen below:




But then as soon as I try to get a ref made, I'm only able to get the face looking sort of ok:


Normally I'd be posting this to critique to try and really GET THIS as fast as possible, but right now I really want to focus on getting the game in working order before I start doing that.

Since I'm an especially-broke dinghole right now, I'm offering an art trade here in lieu of my ability to pay. Since it's compensating for something I'm artistically unable to do, I'm more than willing to do a couple works in return for the help. If you think you'd be capable and willing of getting this frumpy merc woman done up for me, I'd deeply appreciate the help!

Thanks, and have a rad day.

I am confused about what you want done. Are you looking for a high-res version of the character's body to match the head you drew?

Yes, more or less! Just a good bit of art to reference from for some of the planned splash art.

Doesn't necessarily have to be pixelart either.

Ah, job offers! Yeah, that makes sense in hindsight. Thanks to whichever moderator it was that moved the thread for me!
