When I started this I meant it to be a quick piece... silly me.   ;) :crazy:

Let's start from beginning.

@PixelPiledriver Thank you for your edit, I get a lot useful things from it. I'll think about whether should I cover him in dirt or not, but it's a good idea.

@AlucardX60 & Mr. Fahrenheit You are right about highlight color of his shirt, I fix that.

@AlucardX60 Also thank you for your edit, everyone complained about his hair so I've changed it a bit. This is Daryl from the first season cause I was asked to make him couple years ago.  :hehe: If I change his hair to long I will have to change his clothes also, cause he is changing it form season to season.

@Manupix I didn't post reference cause I wanted to hear comment on sprite itself, not in compare to reference, but maybe I was wrong. :( At first I didn't notice problem in proportions, but you were right. I added a few pixels to his legs and arms, also I make crossbow longer and tilted his head a little.

Again thank you for your comments, and here is new version.  ;D

Messed around with the head a bit, made it a lil bigger to try my best to get him recognisable.  Turned out kinda futile at this size even with a couple of extra pixels, but maybe worth a look. Was fun to try anyway!

Also played with the colours a lil too, though mainly just to compensate for adding a highlight skin-tone (think I ended up with a couple less colours than you though somehow).

You achieved something interesting here, you've made it more realistic. I like what you did with additional skin highlight, thou it looks very desaturated. I tried to add one more light tone with same intention, but it didn't change a lot, probably because of light and too saturated mid-tone. I need to learn to choose colors better.

Thank you for your efforts.  :)

Ah - yeah the colour grading in the TV show is so greenish grey, so my colours were a bit less saturated and less warm to try and emulate that a little bit.

Tried my hand at getting a likeness for the face, hope it helps.

Definitely needs that kind of likeness in the face.
Feels like that back foot needs to come up or something? I dunno perspective just feels a bit off.
Not that into the skin tones either. Too orange for me.

@Chris2balls thank you for your edit. :) Yours definitely looks like him more then mine, but that shading under his eyes is killing me.
@Decroded Couple of people complained about legs. I tweek them a little in this last edit.

Thank you all for your comments and edits, here is the final update. I'm satisfied with current result. :) I would just like to hear is there any obvious problem with shading? And if there isn't I would call this done. I invested more time then I planned in this piece, but it payed off. I learned some cool new tricks. :)

Something might have gone wrong when you rotated and aligned the feet, it looks less natural than the previous pose although I can't explain exactly how. Other than that, looks good.

Cool idea for background.
Dunno about the other comments but I thought the feet needed a bit more perspective, not less.
