Pixel Art / Side-view character; having trouble with shading
« on: November 13, 2019, 04:37:23 am »
Hey all, gonna keep this short since it's 4:30am where I am now. I'm having trouble with shading this character I made - the arms and hands especially.

Thanks in advance!

2D & 3D / Self-portrait

Been working on this for the past few hours after getting bored. I'm happy with it, although maybe not with the shading.

Pixel Art / Before I begin animating...
« on: December 05, 2017, 12:44:57 am »
I've been wanting to create a 2D platformer (most similar to Classic Sonic), and I've finally gotten the main character to the point where I want to begin animating. Here are the two competing versions of the character - the first one I made a few weeks back, and the second one was an edit from today.

It's too early to say which one I like best (although I'm leaning towards the second one), so which do you prefer? Are there any improvements you think I could make? I'd like to hear anything, even if it is something vague about whether it looks right or not.

Pixel Art / [WIP] Character for a Sonic-inspired Platformer
« on: August 23, 2017, 10:42:48 am »
I've been trying to make a character for a Sonic-esque platformer, and you can see what I've come up with. The main gimmick is that they use their scarf to interact with objects, and to double jump (which doubles and reverses your vertical momentum).

One of my main requirements for the character is to separate them from Sonic as much as possible. I've noticed that tributes like Freedom Planet and Spark the Electric Jester tend to emulate Sonic's design, but I want my game to stand on its own as much as possible.

My biggest issues at the moment are the colors, because I really don't think the dark/light purple fits but I can't think of anything else to try; the scarf, which I'm sure will fix itself once I do multiple frames of animation to make it flow; and the arms, since they're the same color as the torso. The latter in particular is really holding me back and I don't know how to fix it beyond changing the arms entirely...

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Edit 1: Far from perfect, but at least I tried.

Edit 2: Changed the skin shade colors, messed with the face shading and tweaked a few other stuff.
