rpg portrait faces

on: January 30, 2016, 09:50:11 pm
hey guys, if you hang out in the awesome slack chat then you probably seen these; looking for feedback on these faces:

first off i want to develop a strong base and then make a few varieties. i'll have to make like over a hundred faces in the end, so I really wanna nail these down. this is where i'm at so far:



i've started making a couple faces using it, but something about them just seems very wrong. might need to scrap these completely if i end up changing the base significantly:


(not looking for anything on the characters; they're already locked in and I'm just trying to make decent faces for them)

thanks guys

Is it me or I find there some Final Fantasy Tactics (which I love !) style ? I really like it, I can't tell what is wrong with it (if anything is). For me those look really good !

I think they look really good also, you could probably opt in for some anti aliasing if it's your style, either way it would probably help a bit with the readability of the curvature.

I really like this style! The sprites are very clean and colorful, awesome!

But your faces look very expressionless, there's a lot of room for exaggeration.
Look at anime faces on google and try for some more variety.

I think it's because of the bege/pastel colors that some of them have.
I don't see what's wrong with them, they seem pretty consistent in shape, good colors good shading... Maybe they don't match what the original reference?
