That's a pretty nice walk cycle IMO, but it seems that she's a lot more muscular/heavy than in the front/diagonal frames. Also it seems that her left arm/hand (the one in the shadow) has more swing to it and moves on a more diagonal frame than the other one.

The style I'd developed for the character really wasn't sitting well with me, so I took another crack at it:


I think it still needs some palette tweaks, but this is much closer tonally to the character in my head.

Thanks for the critique, Cage. I think the added weight you noticed was the result of removing the outlines. In any case, I'll be changing the sprite dramatically, so i'll be redoing the animations. ;)

Edited the hair so it's not so big and spiky:


Also started working on a portrait for in-game conversations (very WIP):

This character has gone through quite a few iterations 0.0 at any rate the latest is very nice and clean. No suggestions from me other than to do more!

Echo Ryumaru, but do keep the old hair or at least its bright color. Makes the sprite pop out more.

The perspective looks a bit off, though. The head's great but the body looks much more like a front view.

And the lack of outline on the bottoms of the shoes makes it seem like it was cut off. I guess you could compensate either way, giving them a darker outline or having more not-outlined bits in general, just for consistency.

But other than that, what ^those two said. Including the hair thing.

Actually, the missing outlines on bottom of sprites' feet and shoes is often done; usually to make the character feel more grounded, I think.

News to me. Although I guess it would look better on a background that isn't solid color.

Thanks for the feedback, guys. :)

I brought some shininess back to the hair:


Phlakes, as Dr D said, the absence of outlines on the bottom of the feet was intentional. I think an outline only makes sense if there is some distance between the edge of the object and the background.
