It's just a Bug Phase.

on: July 24, 2015, 12:07:16 am
Hey guys I'm new here and I've seen the talent around and you guys got some awesome stuff. So I'll set up camp amongst you rockstars and hopefully some of that talent will rub off on me.

With that said I'm going through a bug phase where I've been designing characters based off of insects.
Here is Yellow Jacket. He's a wasp.


This was a hard decision. I'm leaning towards 3.

At the Sonic sprite world The Middle Ground I'm recognized by my Saiyan Echidna

Zayo



You can see his sheet here.

And a Hercules Beetle Knight with some attacks.
His horns become various medieval weapons.

Weird question, can I post that animated Zayo sprite in another thread for further study? There's some banding going on and I have been looking for a good animated example to study in terms of clusters and this seems perfect. It has some very beautiful clusters and a few very nasty banding issues going on. It features some clusters that move beautifully through time and some that jump around a bit.

If you search for "cluster" in the general forum, you'll see what I mean, there's a bunch of theory behind it.

Here's an example of a thread that studies clusters:

don't take crits the wrong way, we all benefit from additional sets of eyes and shared knowledge.

Don't worry man, the reason I want to study it is because it's a very nice sprite :). It just has the right amount of minor issues to study in depth.

Wow that character sheet is sweet, really cool. I started doing one myself and started making lots of poses, your work motivated me to keep doing that (I didn't post it yet tho)
About your bug, I am not a fan of big sprites but I like the colours from the second one with the changes on the third, but with one wing on each side.

Thanks, I'm glad it provided some motivation that's awesome. I would also love to make the bug sprite smaller but I keep thinking the design would lost detail.
