I guess by message I mean what pose the original was compared to the edit. To me the original is like rearing to slam into the ground, while the edit is just flexing.

eh.
If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.

Here's my take on Conceit's image.

Hopefully the face is readable; and it's not just me who sees it.  :crazy:

I have to say though, despite the fact that it's an old sprite of yours, the legs are actually pretty well done.
There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Wanted to tackle fur tufts.



Wow. I always love to see your work.

May I ask why you have your palette set up like that?  Why are some colors branching off the others? Is it because it's a shared highlight?

Anyway, looks fantastic.

@wolfenoctis @Night =D that's awesome guys, thanks. Wolf that looks very Dukenukem, funny stuff :p Night...I disagree about my legs XD I basically just shaded in what St0ven drew and really the way I shaded them isnt very clear :p

The original image to me...looks very body sculpting competition, he's flexing but he's also sort of trying to twist in an appealing way :p almost aware of the line of action

if any of you want to do that one you dont have to use my arcadey over saturated colors, just work from the sketch like I did. St0ven had another version with lots of selout, very Street Fighter Alpha-ish...wish I still had it =O

Polioliolio> I work in 24bit most of the time (makes it easier for me to mix new colors) so a drawn palette is useful. That particular network of colors is a bit haphazard (the structure grew and shrank as I worked). I didn't want a fully linear hueless brown ramp so I set up some parallel ramps, one for the cold top colors and one for the orange yellow skin tones (and a few on-the-side highlights). The pink index at the top of the center ramp should really go on the left & cold side of the fork (over the lone cold gray purple) for the structure to make sense.

I've been re-working my totem animal with a cluster-focused approach

   

The palette is mostly the same as Piledriver's original. I've modified the colours a bit to make them contrast more, but basically they're still straight gradient ramps. Also, I'm struggling with creating depth on the claw, and the bottom half in general.

Thoughts?

May I suggest an old sprite of mine for this?
it's based on an outline made by st0ven, and he also had a version

I remember I was very fond of not using outlines back then and feeling like I had everything figured out, I was so cockssure about it I even made a big flamewar out of Egoraptor taking a potshot at it.
But I can see a lot of bad clusters and not very clear lightsource now....so it would be nice to see like a thousand ways it could be better, cause I can see enough bad in it to know it's wrong, but probably still too biased to tear it down and rebuild myself.

so....please? :p

Ah.. back when st0ven would have deltoids merge into arm pits.  Fun times.

Mainly tried to trim Ryu down a shade without robbing him of his original doughiness, as well as to sort out the fabric a bit (although not totally successfully).

EDIT: Those pants were really bugging me and demanded another pass.
