So having a hell of time deciding what sort of hairdo this little guy needs, not that I'm against the Last Airbender look...anyway I mocked up a few designs I dunno anyone got any ideas???  Have I mentioned that I hate doing hair, that it's my Will Weaton to My Sheldon Cooper, my Captain Kirk vs. Khan...but i digress.

  I should mention that the game is taking place in a fantasy setting so something that runs in that vein :)

Thanks in advance

Peace Geeks!

  I'm certainly no expert but from the position of the hand the gun looks too flat should probably have a little more angle to it.  The shading and hair seem a little flat as well...I like the piece though fer sure.

  Keep it up!

Cool thanks RedKnight...yea the foot is hideous I'm gonna work on that next!  And in regards to the sleeves do you mean they are too long or are they just sort of in between?  Anyway thanks for the diagram :D


  Worked on the foot I think it's a step in the right direction.  Extended the legs slightly to even out the stance.  Thinking I should just give him shes instead of dealing with the stupid  Next I have to figure out the hair :P  Ahh arch enemy...but today I shall be the victor mwuhahaha

Hey all,

  Back again with another update...I wanted to take what Shiny did and build on that.  I studied how he got the shadows an highlights to work with the shape and not just some random line.  I didn't want to completely rip off the sprite either, instead I took my previous sprite and adjusted it...I think it's close to what Shiny did without being a complete ripoff...He still has no hair as I'm still undecided about what style I want :)  Also the right foot is a little weird may go back and adjust the shape of it...looks too round.

Any and all feedback is welcome as always!

Peace Geeks

WOW SHINY!!!  that looks amazing!  You have it nailed...I was trying with the last edit to get a more cohesive color got close but i don't think I'm hue shifting enough!?!?  As I'm still new to this I think I should work on palettes a little more.  I've read a few tutorials but they never really mention how far to push it.  Or is this simply sprite specific...As you mentioned the extreme hue shift is to amp up the cartoony feel of the sprite and I think you've nailed it there! 

I think as far as my attempts go, I was over complicating myself and it was coming out all muddled, IT IS supposed to be cartoony and as such should be simple with lots of color and not a ton of detail other than, say, the face, for obvious reasons.

And it's no problem RedKnight I think the shirt in that sprite was all kinds of messed up!  It's no wonder you thought it was a girl lol!  And ironically it's the left hand that will have some sort of "Power" as you put it, cause the character is supposed to have a magical gauntlet on that hand that lets him cast spells.

Thank you both for your awesome edits...your amazing!

So taking what I had changed last night and adding a few more finer details based on what RedKnight told me I've sone some editing on this little guy and I think it's starting to come together.

  I've tried to unify my palette a little better not sure if it's in the right direction but it seems to give the piece a little more harmony.  I've added some shading similar to what RedKnight had done by adding a fifth "darker" shade to the flesh tone.  I've removed the sword/stick until later when I have time to complete it.  I've added some sandals and changed the clothing slightly.  I've also started to flesh out some hair or a hairstyle.  Not sure really what style I want for the hair so this is more of a placeholder than the finished design.

Well I hope this is a step in the right direction.  Again all feedback is welcome.

Hey your very welcome sorry to hear about the problems with mother nature I hope everything is okay.  We don't usually have to worry about stuff like that here in Canada :P  Anyway as far as the fuzzy picture problem try using I've been using for a while now and it doesn't screw with my pics...check it out it's free!  And keep in mind that the example I did was quick and crappy and by no means a good way of doing a wall I was just trying to show you what a few colors could do to make things pop a little more :P  I'm still learning too...good luck!

  Thanks RedKnight.  All great tips!  I do want to mention that this is supposed to be a male character lol.  I want to try and keep the anime/cute sort of style without making all my characters looks feminine...apparently that needs work lol.

  To be honest the sword hadn't even been touched yet lol but you've shown me some really great steps there and I will try them out for sure.  I was having some issues with the shading of the face, your version looks way better.  I'm still trying to transition what I know about drawing and coloring to pixel format.

  Thanks again for the feedback it helps a lot.  And I'll have an update up soon!
