Hero of Allacrost: Enemy Sprite [C+C]

on: June 15, 2011, 12:00:17 pm
Exactly what it says on the tin.

A demon I've designed and that I'm pixeling for the guys over at www.allacrost.org



It's based on this design sketch I did two days ago



It's the first sprite of this kind that I make  :-[

Looks absolutely fantastic mate nice one!
The red looks great but have u considered patches or a pattern of a second colour like green or something instead of all one colour?
Also think the gold bands could use some tweaking, some mismatched sizes and they are a little torusy for me. The gold colour doesn't look very realistic but maybe that doesn't bother u?
Also his right knee is a little spherical for me.
Great work but!

Thanks for the reply!

I actually envisioned the wrist/anklets as toruses. And yes their sizes aren't exactly the same... I'll try to water that down with some shading... o wait the one on the left ankle is WAY too oversized. I'll have to edit that.

Yes, I guess it cold use some clear belly or something, but I don't feel to confident about it... I'll try that, though, just in case it turns out cool. If it doesn't it'll stay all red.

And you're right about the knee, it's too ball-ish, I'll edit that too.

Also I'm thinking that the upper jaw, needs more teeth onthe left side.

I thought you had mentioned earlier on our forums about making him breathe fire out of his mouth. Did you decide against doing that? Even without the fire he looks pretty bad-ass so I have no complaints. Plus we could make another enemy sprite that's a variation on this one by having it breathe fire. ;D

I'm thinking you could use your darkest red for more than just the outlines. Most of the parts look like they're mostly made of midtones (alliteration FTW), and could use a bit more contrast between the shades. You also might want to experiment with some hue shift, making the darker reds shift over to violet.

Oh well that's kind of cheap :lol: but if you don't mind, neither do I!  ;D I'll make a flaming version with some changes and there you go, another monster X_D

Well, I'll try. But as the red shades get darker they get colder too. Not too much, but I'm only starting to do that kind of thing with colors.

Final version, hopefully ready to be used in-game, unless I've missed some standard.

This is the best I've seen from you, it's pretty cool!
The only qualms I have for this piece are the knees and the abdominal area.
Wait a sec, just whipping up an edit:

Well, that palette swap looks cool, but it isn't even red anymore  :-X
