martial artist-esque fellow

on: July 04, 2010, 12:53:38 am
I happened to look thought some old folders today, and I found an old folder with a bunch of old sprites I either finished or barley started.
One stood out to me. It was a chibi looking guy I made from scratch (This was a time I shamefully edited sprites), and I felt the need to remake the guy who started me on the path of custom made pixel art.


Left of course was the original.
I'm pretty content with the legs, but the rest bugs me to no end.

Perhaps it's the fact that his chest appears to be facing towards the viewer, while the rest of his body suggests it should be turned to the left more?

Other than, great! I like the palette you used.

Not completely sure on how to make his body not towards the viewer, but I tried.
Also cleaned up his scarf-like thing since it looked like a messy blob of pixels.

That's a bit better; you hinted at his chest being slightly more in perspective. He looks great, also the scarf edit was a good idea, I failed to notice that before.
