KoS fighter...again ( FINSHED SPRITE )

on: August 22, 2006, 10:29:33 pm
Yes, its another KoS topic. It's probably my 5th concept for a fighter but I like this one a lot, and think it can finnaly make it to the final product. Right now its a major WIP, but I just wanna take care of any anatomy issues before I go on any further. Gotta make sure I look right.  ;)




I know there's no color, but can anyone help me make the dreads more distinguished?

I'm no anatomy expert, so I donno, but it looks good to me.  I think that the blocky feet could maybe use some work... And the pants look very....symetrical, almost like upsidedown bunny ears or something.  I would say making them not so straight on the edges would help.

Can't wait to see it colored.

Well, i'm still not totally satisfied, but here's the color version. The skin is really pissing me off. I just cant get the tones for the skin right. Any help?

The clothing looks very nice, I think you maybe need a darker skin colour to use on the more prominent lines. I would also say that his arms seem far less dynamic and interesting than in your original sketch. I think his feet may also be just a little too geometric, but otherwise very nice work.

Thanks for your comments. I re-did the skin. I hated that skin color and Shifty's comments sealed its fate. Here's a finished version, and I think it looks 5x better. I used this sprite of Bob Wilson as a reference for the hair.

Now for the portrait. I'm may even animate this guy. He's supposed to be a muscular, martial arts, version of me. The hair and sun-glasses are probably the only thing on him that I own.

His left arm is short, elbow should align with a waist - compare to the right hand.=) And something wrong with  arms  muscules.
Maybe get rid of those dark lines. And left arm also has incorrect muscule group - you wouldn't be able to see triceps from this position.
And hands are different  by width. The otherwise looks good.=)

Hope you wouldn't mind:


But I'm no expert, do not trust me, most of the time I have no idea what a hell am I doing.=))

To be honest, I like the lineart guy more, it has live dynamic feel in his pose.=)

the arms are MUCH better and far more interesting in the original sketch.

The people have spoken! Fists are OUT, fingers are IN. I'll tell you something though, pixeling them was a bitch.



Improvement?

hey

Nice work :).



I'm no anatomy expert either... but I think the arms should look more like this.

actually both of your versions have bogus arm muscles, try looking in the mirror... I sprained my thumb, so I cant edit
