Female sci fi pilot

on: July 07, 2014, 05:13:32 pm
Hey guys and girls. I'm pretty new to pixel art and was just wondering if anyone could help me out with this... I'm having trouble with the pose specifically, I can't quite figure out how to proceed with the legs. Any help with this or general tips would be great. Thanks!

i like your colors. what kind of pose is she supposed to be in? her legs and forearms don't seem very finished, do you consider them to be?

Thanks! I'm not finished yet, no.  But any critiques on them would be great. The pose is supposed to be like. .. uhh how do I explain this? The leg on the right is supposed to be bent back and the foot is sticking out behind it.  I will probably add another arm as well. Just trying to figure it out.  I've never tied a pose this dynamic before :p

I was reading it as her crotch being pointed at the camera -- is this correct?

If not, put some basic shading on her so we can see what you're going for.

Yeah, the crotch is supposed to be facing you. But that's one thing I'm struggling with. I have no idea how to attempt her from pretty much the chest down. I've tried several times and it never ends up looking right.

Small update. Made the head a bit smaller and added some shading (does it look okay?) and tried to make the the legs and feet look a little more complete. I'll keep at it! Any pointers?
