[C+C] 16x16 Hoplite

on: October 18, 2015, 08:11:34 pm
Hi, this is my first serious pixel art attempt. It is supposed to be a hoplite sprite for the game I'm making. The art is supposed to be similar to the style of Loveable Rogue.

Right now the biggest issue I have is getting the shield right. I tried many iterations with a gold border and dark center, but something was off every time. Also, for now I am using DawnBringer's 16 color palette.

I like it, to me it's very recognizable. It's simple enough to work. I would keep the shield very plain, the more detail, the more it'll get lost, as it's already quite a busy sprite.
