[WIP] Samurai-Inspired Character + Other Characters

on: March 26, 2016, 11:13:19 am
Hello! I need some help and feedback on this character. Anything will help!
I plan to animate it later, but I'd love to get the design and colors out of the way first if possible.
I'm a little stumped as to how I should proceed next, the main thing that's bugging me is the sash on the tummy area and the skirt-like garment over the legs and the feet themselves. I cannot figure them out :/
Also I believe the shading is horrendous so some pointers would be great.

Left : The blob version for animating,
Right : The working version.

Thank you! And please be as harsh as you need to.

Mini-update.
Decided to change the pose a bit.

Amazing :D
I'm having a few problems reading the thing around his belly (making the right part smaller may help I think)
also the green on his sword handle doesn't look like it is fitting this but this may just be me.
Just a random hobby gamedev passing by O:

@Pusty Thanks man :) 
Ah yeah, as I mentioned the belly part is giving me a lot of trouble. I cannot figure it out :/ Still trying, though.
Oh, the green on the sheath is temporary. I decided to make the sheath completely dark now.
 :y:

Not sure if this works, but I'll leave it here.

Just made a small change to the sash because it was too wide and bulky near his left arm.
Also, the shading on his left arm should be bigger as it is the side where the light source is(like the left side of the skirt part).
you're not going to kill me now, right?

I was just going to say "I love the pose" but then in the next post you changed it. I thought the composition was best in the first post. Lol

Hey ho. Another mini-update.
Thanks for the replies guys, I will take a few things from the edits and probably add them in later

For now, though..
Thanks sanicspin.


Why do I still include the blob version? No idea.


And with some help from pik, I have made this. 

I'm sure it can be improved a ton still. I'm going to try to animate.
