GR#071 - The Werecrow

on: September 02, 2011, 06:50:54 pm
Hey guys, this is my old account... I'm usually known as Crow now ^^

But uhm, I wanted to post my latest pixel since I haven't been on this in the looongest (I bet no one remembers me :P... Maybe the admins? lol)




I didn't do it alone, Elk helped me alot on it. :)

I should probably take the time to say that, this is for my RPG - Wreckquiem... And I need a hand in the art department >.< it's a dark styled Rpg, if that's your type of thing email me at BBQPollo@live.com :)

C+C away!

Werecrow. Cool thought applying the concept of 'wolf to werewolf' to something else. Haven't come across that before.

Looking good, assuming it's WIP, like it appears. I'd never know his design was derived from a crow if it weren't for the beak and even that I had to look for once I realized what it was supposed to be.

Light grey head feathers are especially formless. Needs more shading steps.

What's the red stuff on his torso?

Needs some Anti-Aliasing too, and the red line under the eyes has too much saturation

It reminds me of "The World Ends With You" 's enemies, did you take inspiration from it? : )  (that game rocks)

Will adding some black feathers around him add some bird essence? :/ Can't think of what else would help demonstrate the idea... Maybe the wings are too "Bat" style, and not feather enough. Oh and I'll fix the hair, you're right.

As for the eyes being too saturated, since the game itself has a dark style I was thinking that the high saturation could help give a "glow in the dark" effect, something that captures the eye.
I'll post an edit soon.

The only reason I never AA is because I don't find it fun, or artistical... It's more geometrical, and not fun at all. I don't do anything if I don't find it fun ^^

P.S. The new forum icons and stuff are annoying, I've double posted and early replied while in the middle of replying so far without wanting to  .-. grr.

Lookin' good there : D

I insist in saying that just the SLIGHTEST bit of anti-aliasing would make it look 1000000x better : p  :y:

xD If I did the AA it would be just to make it look fashionable on paper... As far as then putting it in the game, and having to AA everything else >.> not really down for that kind of commitment. At all, lol.

You should post a mockup with a background so that we can see how it would look ; )
