[WIP] Fire emblem inspired sprites

on: December 28, 2015, 09:19:01 am
I felt like converting a sprite I made into a little fire emblemesque looking sprite. I felt like practicing in this kind of style before I try to try to create something from complete scratch. I shrunk it down, flattened some colors, and gave it a sword. Any tips to improve it? I also plan on animating it eventually.

Fire emblem inspired:

Fire Emblem exaggerates the size of characters' hands, feet and heads; it uses a lot of large, blocky bits; and the knights tend to have their chests out.
Try making each area of your guy bigger and simpler, pushing the shoulders back and bringing forward the chest more.
