God damn! I'm really loving the palette, and the design. The shirt might be too wrinkly as far as realism's concerned but I think it looks great here.
As for the leg, I think maybe something like this, only done, y'know... good:

I think the skull face gave him more character, but It could just be me. Lookin forward to seeing it finished. ;)

And also, ADVANCED PILLOWSHADING for when you know, you're not making art wrong enough.

Hahaha Amazing. You're now my hero. But on to the actual artwork...

Maybe I'm not looking closely enough, but aside from the stars at the end, I'm not seeing a whole lot of pillowing going on here.
Anyway, I like these. I think they show really impressive versatility considering it's not only a 16 colour pallette, but also that there're only 2 shades of each colour, and there must be well over a hundred little guys on this sheet.

I like the new skin alot. It's very smooth, really well blended, and the tone is great. I honestly like the old hair better though, even if it does look a little messy. I think, like Pawige said, some AA on the old hair's highlights (or just on the old hair in general) could look pretty sweet. Right now it looks a bit... I dunno, plastic maybe?

Reaper: Yeah, I kinda like where the face is going with the front, so I probably will do just that. Starting from scracth on the hair is, I agree, is the best route given where it's at.

Helm; Hooray! I wondered about that, what with all the green shades. And yeah, I agree with you in a big way about the anime deal; I've been working pretty steadily to ditch it (a relic from the past that infects my style even now :D). That's the style that naturally came out when I was sketching around tho, so I guess I haven't shaken it off yet.

New post popped up while I was typing--

Reaper: I had the very problem you just brought up (starting by imitating anime, that is). That was awhile ago now, but I think it still holds a heavy sway over my style. But yeah, mainly I think because it's so effeminite (it's actually a guy, believe it or not), the anime influence really takes hold of the image.

While we're on the topic, any advice, generally, about moving away from this?

Xion Night: Heh Thanks muchly man, I won't lie and say the ego inflation's not appreciated. Didn't realize I was one of the awesome people tho :D

sonic_reaper: I'll have to take your word on that ;D. As for the hair, I think it's cause the colored bits look to much like solid blocks or cones rather than hair (even cartoony hair). A big part of it's that it's just not finished though.

Some new stuff, most of which is unfinished and sloppy, and Dragonface is the only one that I put an acceptable effort into.
Ah well, crits and etcetera always appreciated.


Just ignore the face in the lower right corner, as it makes me cry and feel ashamed. :P

Edit: Something happened to this pic and only this pic apparently, cause all my others are still working... huh.

Heh, bet he makes for a violent drunk.
I like it. good lines, nice pose. I did a rough edit, 'cause I have too much time on my hands. Hope you don't mind.

Palette: Like you said, there were alot of colours for such a small piece, and even at 8x, I couldn't tell where you used some of them. That's not necessarily a big deal though. I think low colour count really comes down to personal preference, but if you want to lower the number of colours, it is possible.
I increased the contrast, too. At 1x, it's kind of hard to see the highlights on the original. Lastly, I tried to add some tinting (that is, the shades are bluish, the highlights more yellowed), but I'm ne wto that myself, so it may not look too sexy.

Colouring: The only reason I changed any colouring was because I reduced the palette, and need to alter some lines (I couldn't do alot of anti-aliasing, for example). Some fold lines are thinner, etc. Nothing big. Oh yeah, I guess I added some more highlights, too, but that's because I got carried away. In mine, it looks like his close are wrapped pretty tight, in that binding, uncomfortable sort of way. :P

I didn't change anything on the lines, 'cause they look great as is, so that's about it. don't take my word on any of this though, 'cause I don't know what I'm talking about most of the time. if this is any help at all though, I'm happy.

Heh, yeah. My mistake about the saturation. I checked it in the program I was working in and it was at 240 (which was as high as I could go),but it was only like 30-ish in photoshop though, so... shows what I know. ;)

I was going to put it on a background, too, and if I did I probably would have AA'd the edges more, but I was strapped for ideas so he got a gray field instead.

I like the orb suggestions alot. I'm going to have to look into the reflective sphere bit, cause I love how they, but I've never look at them closely enough to learn anything. failing that, i'll toy with the halo. I think it is supposed to be at least a semi-intense light source, so it might make more sense anyway.

He's definitely isn't pretty, is he? I did the lineart about the same time I finished Frankenstein, so... coincindence?

Thanks again, guys, for the great crits. I'm learning lots of stuff.

Thanks, guys, for the replys. Wasn't sure on the highlights cause of my damn monitor (or maybe it's just me ). Looking at it, I think that "probably still being wasteful" bit might have come off sounding sarcastic, but I meant it. I really can't tell!

Baccaman21: Thanks man! Glad you like it. Means even more coming from someone with your level of accomplishment :D

Faktabald: Cast shadows, right. I Thought something looked off. I'll give that a shot, and see how it turns out. Heh, It could take a few tries before I figure it out.

Syn:...heh, yeah, that's its nose up there :P (I don't get it either)

Hey instant. I was doing sprites around this size awhile ago, and had no idea how to animate 'em either. Don't know about a tutorial, but you might refernce Ragnorok Online's sprites. Never played it, but the sprites seem solid, and they're around this size. Here's a link to get you started. Good luck!
