[C+C] Trying out new Style

on: December 15, 2015, 04:30:07 pm
After a while I tried spriting once again.
Here's the result:

I don't have any more ideas on how to improve it, so I posted it here for you guys to judge.

After remembering your first post you did here I'm shocked.
This looks amazing. :D Now I'm kinda sad I didn't make so much progress :P

I don't know what this pink line is?
I'm not to sure about the way he is holding the Bat.
Everything else looks fine to me.

The shading on the bat is wrong.

An aluminum/metal bat has a very specific shading where it has sharp lines that reflect light, or if the only light source is dim then it still has a notable highlight. http://www.boonebait.com/images/88888.jpg http://previews.123rf.com/images/coprid/coprid1008/coprid100800039/7673590-Aluminum-baseball-bat-isolated-on-white-Stock-Photo.jpg

If you look at those, they have either one big highlight going down the bat, or several if there are more light sources. Your bat becomes darker in the middle, implying either that it's concave or there are very specific light tricks being done. Also, most bats have a flat top, so they wouldn't have the top that your bat has.

Metal Bat has a rounded bat though.

Update:
Metal Bat


GIF of the progress:

I am not sure on how the bat should be shaded, also I am not happy with the face (kinda tried to go for this: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/onepunchman/images/c/c2/MetalbatAnime.png/revision/latest?cb=20151208185709)

Don't be afraid of necks, man. Utilize them in the blocking phase! The curve of a neck helps to suggest the curvature of the spine and is Important.

Any ideas on how to improve this sprite and the one before it?

The shoulders aren't looking correct to me but maybe I'm wrong
