Bumpdate - we've been thrown into turmoil by the prospect of NPA techniques taking over the larger graphics:

here's just a quick sketch :



that took at most 35 minutes while watching Dexter, trumping ridiculously the several hours spent on each pixel art portrait.  Smoothing won't add too much time, either.

What to do, what to do?

A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I think it would be fine to place some NPA portrait and cut scenes, for the game's sake. Just as long as you keep the current style he's shaded in right now...and in the hopes that there aren't characters that resemble cancer patients, whose names resemble anything close to Baldy MacCoolio.  ;D
my back hurts...

Non Pixel Art (using brushes, rescale, auto AA and such...).

characters that resemble cancer patients

because he's bald and crosseyed, or because his skin palette?

Possibly a bit of both. That grey colour (between his eye and his ear, etc) makes him look a little sickly.

heh, i'm glad it's only a "vectory look," as taking the time to pen tool this would defeat the purpose entirely.  It's actually done in MS Paint (photoshop hates my touchscreen)



sorry to derail will bring back tah pixels soon enough

Theres a big clash in terms of level of detail between portrait and sprite. Almost like putting a stick figure next to a photo. I'd suggest simplifying the portrait to cartoony or anime.


Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism
