Pixel Art / Re: Cartoony styled dude for a game walking right...
« on: June 15, 2006, 02:12:02 pm »
Hey there. I made a quick edit to show some things I think could be improved on this.


edit (not animated)

So here is what I think:
The feet looks a little too much like balloons. Maybe it is the style you want, but I changed it in the edit. About your colors, I think that they were a little too dark, and there was too little contrast. I didn't change the contrast too much though, but you should experiment with it. Also, I changed most of the black outlines to colored outlines, because that often looks better. I think that his jacket had some gradient shading too so I changed that; try to not use gradient shading. I made his white shirt red but nevermind that. Some things that I didn't show in the edit: First of all, the coloring and shading of the pig. I recommend that you never use dithering in sprites, partly because I don't like it, and because it removes contrast ,(also it might be hard to animate, especially in more complex and bigger sprites). I think there should be another shade of grey on the wings. The grey used on the wings now I think should be used as the outline for the wings instead of black.

And short about animations:
These are cool animations, and congrats on making them so good because it would really be too bothersome for many people to do that. The walking animation I think could have smaller steps, right now they are almost like he's running. About the pig, I don't think it should fly so much up and down in the cycle, and perhaps you should try making the cycle faster, but it's nothing big.

Even if you don't make a game out of this, I think it is good practice to draw sprites and animate them. Well done. Remember to keep practiding, and with every picture you make you will become better :)

Thanks for the c+c. Anyways: the mouth was supposed to be one of those stylish up-the-cheek-mouth, and that's why it's so far back. The outline of the beard disappears just because the nose already has an outline there, and I didn't think two were necessary. Well, I might think about it.

Anyways, I don't think I will make any edits, dunno if I have what it takes. Especially about the colors: might try it but I think I might be too lazy.

Some of these seems familiar but I can't quite remember them if I ever knew them...I can recognize the guys from naruto, but if somebody requested them I don't really know who.

And really nice to have you back Tisha! Looking forward to see more from you.

Hey ndeal, I really hope you will make something. The last one you made was great.

DementedHero: It looks good, but the pants look more realistic while the body has more contrast. Maybe you should add another color or change the existing ones. About the red hair, I think it could work on the sprite. If it should work on the portrait though, I think you need more of it. Also the colors doesn't match, maybe you could switch the red to some other color that looks better with the grey.

The pictures and portraits submitted or shown in this thread are all great! My favorite has gotta be the one posted by Cold Mage, because of the animation. Simply awesome.

And Thank you Helm, for the great crits. I know I am bad at folds and those I made pretty random, but I didn't really think about it so thanks for pointing it out. Without that no doubt my portrait would be a million times worse. Here's the new sprite, and the portrait:

I got some crits by Mori on the chat channel, and I'm pretty sure I will make some more changes to the sprite. I think I'll make his eyes closed too, to make him more sleepyhead like in the portrait. Everyone is welcome with there crits and comments, good and bad!

Zach: Nice picture, but DON'T save it as jpg!!!! Maybe it's photobucket changing the file format because it was BMP or something, but use PNG or GIF instead.

Let's see if I can recognize some of them.

The first should be Kon. #2 is MadToaster. #3 I don't know but #4 should be gunstar_red. #5 I can't tell what it is really, and I think nvision made #6. #7 is by DerekDoctors . #8 I think is either by Wolverine or that other guy called SonicAngel or something. #9 and #10 I'm not sure if I've seen, but #11 is ndeal. #12 is by Cheops, the motive is his girlfriend Tisha. #13 I can't tell who made either, but #14 is St0ven. #15 looks perhaps like the veggie by what's his name, BlackHawk or BlackEye or something. #16 I think I've seen, Dustin? #14 I think I have seen before, and the last one, but dunno who made them. Other than that I recognize Helms portrait, and the one to the right of it looks like something from the FFTA commercial critique challenge.

How big is the poster, and how sharp? I don't think you need me to tell you that the image you posted is blurry as crap.

EDIT: You might have understood my question. How sharp is the picture to you, in reality? No need to change the picture you uploaded whatsoever.

It was hard to get a pallette working. I dunno whether you think this is too saturated or not, but I hope you like it.

Flaber, thank you very much, that is great, also very flaber-ish :P
