 Wonderful! I just love the colors. They are so FF-like. I have trouble with side view. Front's a little difficult for me.

Yes but i view another spriter and the perspective is correct :)

Another edit:



The Helmet in the second frame not like very much :( . And i need improve the details for equal in all frames. I need make all the gfx of characters and well not have artwork and nothin, i simply make pixels to seems a knight.

I looking in google references of artwork of knights etc.. to help me to make the characters.

What you think now?

all but the helmet looks pillow shaded there, I kinda respect the way you tried to depict the detail on the helmet but honestly it doesnt much work out for me either.

I can see the pillowshading comes from imitating the original sprite, but the original sprite is kinda passable because doesnt have a shade that is bright enough to make it look like it has highlights, so it's almost like there's only Selout going on in there.

But when you went and put a white highlight on it, it starts looking like pillowshading because now you're going all the way from outlines to highlights, unlike the FF sprite that only goes from outlines to midtones.

just a few quick things.  as already mentioned, you pushed the shoulder up too high in the sideview.  also, there are some issues with the helmet in the diagonal views, and these are the most important!  the lines are too busy and its difficult to see what they are supposed to actually be.  im glad you didnt try to achieve FFT style because theres only so much you can do with their no-nonsense coloring job, but yours might tip a little too far in the opposite direction where the helmet is concerned.  clean that up and you are good to go.  also, some top to bottom shadowing would go a long way to adding depth.  good job so far :D
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

The portrait is great! What about a feather in his helmet?

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
