Thanks metachaos :)

After fiddling around with some animations, I sketched up another enemy concept.


It just looks..off. Unfortunately I have to go to bed. I'd love any and all feedback and I'll hopefully fix it when I wake up.

It's supposed to be a shaman-like character.
(Still trying to animate the samurai :ouch:)
Correct me if I'm wrong

Hmm I think it's more the lighting / anatomy. Here's a quick paintover using the same colours but trying to mimick the same light source as the left character. As you can see with more accurately proportioned limbs he starts to be crouched instead of hunched, so the pose needs fixing now.

Yo.
Thanks rocifier for always helping out.
I like what you did with the shading and the legs. It definitely gave me ideas and helped me out. As for the light source, let's just say the character is flipped right now and it's coming from the front and up from the direction they're looking at.


I worked on the shaman earlier today. Wasn't happy with it so I redid it with a better pose and overall what I believe would fit better.

The colors are temporary, I need to figure out the anatomy still.

I feel like the previous shaman design had more appeal to it, with the mask and funky staff. This just looks like some random dude with a spear.
Unless it's a seperate character and I'm misinterpreting entirely, haha

I agree, the first one had appeal, but I think this one's better when you look at the big picture IMO. I can design more goofy characters later.
It is the same character. I redid it because I was unhappy.
I can work on the appeal, I guess.

Aye. Shouldn't need many changes, I do question the white hair with the lighter skin tone but
I also feel like you're dodging the controversy bullet by shifting the tribesman away from the dark skin too.

It might help to get some sort of wooden armor or some trinkets on him, right now he looks more warrior than shaman with the emphasis on his conan-esque pectorals

Alrighty. I'll get to work. Thanks.
Also @MysteryMeat, read this http://pixelation.org/index.php?topic=19579

Also, it isn't white hair, it's wearing an animal skin. I guess I should work on the readability if it is not that obvious?

;)
