General Discussion / Street Fighter 2 HD gfx style 'rethink'

I think they realised the art they had before wasn't too good..

Another sprite based on a design by Arne (2nd from left):

The reason it's foreshortened is both to fit into the 16 x 16 size, and for the top-down perspective used in games such as Laser Squad and The Chaos Engine. Unfortunately, this isn't quite right.. It's difficult to put detail into a face without making things too chibi'esque..  :-\

So, overall I'm not very happy with this, but thought I might as well post it..

Pixel Art / Chryssalid sprite (16 x 16)

Myself and Arne are big fans of Julian Gollop's games (Chaos, Rebelstar Raiders, Laser Squad, XCOM, etc..) We would both like to do new games inspired by these kind of games (but in different directions). Anyway, Arne has been sketching out some designs and I've done a few 16 x 16 pixel sprite versions. Altjhough small, I like working within the limitations of this size. I wanted to try do a version of Arne's style with a bit more of a moody 16-bit feel.

Arne has done a great version of a Chryssalid from XCOM: Enemy Unknown and I tried to do a sprite version with a bit more of a realistic style with some top-down lighting. But I've had problems with some aspects of this sprite. Does anyone have any C&C (or edits) which would help me see where I am going wrong?

I'm trying to improve my spriting, but feel like I have some 'blind spots', can anyone point out what I've done wrong and how to correct it within these limitations? Thanks!

Hello all!

It's strange to see the return of the pixelation site, and with some familiar names here too! It's been some time since I was last active on pixelation, but I'm looking forward to seeing some of your great art here on this site. :)
