This might be worth looking at. You can deviate from the style and still have the character be recognizable.

I hope you can find the time to fix the sprite to whatever you think is best
Since nobody else has made an edit, and I generally admire the game Iji myself, I'll take a crack at an edit.


This post will be edited once I complete the back...

Small, but at least it's a good example. :)

Oh, right. I said I was going to make an edit... Got lazy :yell:

Either way the only problem I can see with FRAWG's edit is that the legs are a bit short and the Iji-character's left leg seems longer than her right leg.

BTW (addressing your sprite), when I said noodle-limbs, now that I look back they do have straight angles but not much definition. So I'd describe them more as tube-limbs.

Yeesh... I tried editing the sprite yet again.

Just some color changing and a little bit of shading added. I really need to get this perfected soon so I can start animating it   :'(

I made an edit as a warm-up before getting back to my pixels.



You've got enough pixels to add some shape and form to the figure.  I went with softer, rounder shapes to make it more feminine.

Added mass to the hips, and raised the hips one pixel up.  The groin is about halfway up a normal figure, and for a jump and run character I think it's good to keep the legs long.

Softened the shoulders a bit, narrowed the upper torso to make it more feminine.

I didn't get the front leg correct, You could probably pull the whole thigh down a pixel and it would fit better.  I am still rather poor at hair, so ignore those bits.

Some thoughts:
Teenagers are usually not fully grown.  Which means less than 8 heads high.  Or a larger head on the same body.  You could increase the size of the head a pixel or two and it would be fine.  This would give you room to add a mouth if you wanted one.

The lightest green is a bit bright.  Be sure to take a look at it on the real backgrounds to make sure it looks ok.

Hope this helps,
Tourist

That is excellent, Tourist!  :D Much better than I can do (not good with anatomy)
The team leader on this project decided he wanted the whole face (both eyes) facing towards the player... So I edited your sprite in various places. Tell me what you think :)
