That's pretty fancy MdNight! I like what you've done with the armor. I might try to incorporate more of a gleaming metallic look but as I went I felt more and more like he should be fleshy. I'm going to recolor some of him and see how he looks then. Will update, possibly tonight.

There's something odd about their feet! I think it's the scale and perspective. I see that you were trying to make it so only the tip of the shoe was showing but where are the sole and tongue?

Both have legs the same length as their torso or arms, which isn't right. Also, Dr. Zelenka's waist is extremely square.

What are these from? I'm liking them.

I've since updated further. I:
  • Wasn't satisfied with the legs so I reshaped them, which I believe turned out better.
  • I changed his abdomen a little and added cape along his shoulders.

Thank you kindly for the wonderful advice. I'll see what I can do.

I've been operating under the impression that for shadows one should aim for colder colors (blue/purple) and highlights should be warmer colors. (yellow/orange). I'm also considering the alteration of the color scheme, in some places, to break the monotony of the red. The cape is just a venture, he looked bland without -something-, I would love to hear what you have to offer about the cape.

I haven't really decided where I plan on putting the programming together. My options are open. Maybe XNA. I do know that it's going to be a single player RPG.

His legs should probably be a bit longer. You've also got a lot of detail in a relatively small space, so at 1x it looks a bit noisy. There's also little contrast, so it looks a bit flat.

Taking your advice, I made the legs longer, changed the palette a bit, and put in a bunch of work on killing the noise.

I'd say it's coming along but I'm having trouble with it looking like he has underwear on   :o That and I'm having trouble with shading the legs in general.

Please advise.

Just note that I'm a newbie at pixel art. I'm challenging myself by learning the way of the pixel.

I've got a fun little game planned and I decided I'd start piddling with sprites since I'm terrible at everything!

Anyway, I've settled on a process by which I first draw the outline of what I want with some detail lines as well. Then I move on to trying to shade it in.

Here is Lord Vehement in all his glory:

I also made an isometric-ish (ish: considering I don't know the proper angle) treasure chest for practice:

Being new, I'm looking for constructive criticism along with tips for pixel art in general. Any and all aid is very much welcome!
