Pixel Art / Re: A pixel artist in need.
« on: February 18, 2007, 11:44:57 pm »
Well of lot of cartoonishness is simply exaggerating a feature of animation.... which means doing something like having the legs apart which simply doesn't occur in a walk doesn't really work even on that level.  (Unless you have some strong hip movements or something)

When he's facing straight at us, his face looks kinda like a dog's with a muzzle sticking out front, due to the way it's shaded.  When he's facing the side however, his face is flat, so it doesn't match up so well.  I kinda of like the way it is in the front view... looks quite unique.

Also, from the side, he's much too skinny.

If you weren't compensated in any way for making these, and there's no contract then yes, of course, they are yours.  The only thing borrowed is the basic character design which is too vague to be considered anyhow.

"The project leader isn't replying my mails anymore"

I've always found such behaviour beyond rude.  Even if I flake out on something, I still stay in touch with anyone who cares.  It's cowardly and disrespectful at best.

In any case, keep working on your sprites.  If you get good enough, and get enough done, I'm sure other people will take interest.  There's no shortage of "programmer looking for artist" types afterall.  It's inspiring to see how much effort and perseverance you've been putting into this little guy.

Oh, and yeah, amateur projects breaking down is VERY common.  In fact, it's the rule, not the exception.  Don't feel discouraged.

Personally I think it looks worse, like the legs are randomly kicking out. 

*edit* here's a reference, made via poser

Hmm, the green guy is hard to look at.  If you could add more contrast somehow it would help.

I did a little edit

3 Minor changes:
Made the right arm go out into his front more, and behind his back less
Corrected the foot positions (remember if you shift a frame it moves everything... so alter the leg length to compensate and keep the feet in the right spots)
Made the feet slightly higher and slightly more angular when coming forward compared to when going backward

Started on the back facing walk eh?

The height changes when one leg is forward should be the same as the height changes when the other leg is forward.  In other words, there should either be 2 "up" frames or "4", not 3.

In the up facing walk, the right foot doesn't move as much as the left one, and seems to be moving a different angle as well.  Try using the line tool to make some parallel guidelines to help you with the feet positions.

Oh yeah, one more thing... the arms are going too far behind his back in the up facing walk.  Don't just cut-paste the arm-movement from the down facing sprites.

I'm about to work on a walk of approximately that angle myself pretty soon.  Been holding off because it's intimidating.

After my edit it still needs back-shoulder movement and a double check of the foot positions.

Yes to the new cheek highlight, no to the nose shadow.  Or rather, instead of having the shadow complete the oval outline of the nose, it should darken the bottom left of the nose.

I'm about to fall asleep here, however, I can make one recommendation.  There should be basically no distance between the legs during walking.  Move each leg in one pixel (and have them share a border) and it'll look much better.

It'll be okay, as long as you make sure to claim it right away.  I've "digged up" all the pixelation posts by 1.

In the end it was good that hawken posted this "author unknown"(lol) thing so stuff could get out in the open early
