Dream sweet [WIP, Help me please!]

on: October 07, 2006, 08:39:12 pm

I was trying to finish this before I posted it, but I'm completely stuck on the hair and tree branch. I cast away all cares for palette conservation, but I'll unify it when I'm done. Please help, edits welcome!

I realize that the already done branch looks wierd and flat, but I'll fix that later.

C&C, now!

Hey I like the color choices and the overlapping shades. The theme of grasping/coiling is kind of sensual. Neat.

My biggest concern is the forehead, it should be much larger.

I love it. I have a strange liking for it with the small forhead...i know it's not anatomically correct but it has some sort of appeal...

The nose could be smaller too.

Very nice work :y:

Hmm... It seems pixel art is turning into abstarct looking art, and for no use... Im concerned. Pretty good though. :y:

Seriously WTF, just because people like experimenting and trying out new things it doesnt mean a whole medium is turning into "Abstarct" art.  Push the boundaries beyond 32x32 sprites.  And why are you concerned about a scene thats being going on longer than you've been alive?

Great work Xion, awesome pallette.  I think there should be more ambience on the back of her head though.

Edit: damn those typos!

Why the deuce would you be concerned? Because people decided they can do more than pump out more than the same old sprites?
How closed minded. !yus!

There's a nice off-topic discussion right there, but do it in another thread. Please keep this about Xion's piece. Thanks.

This is really nice, Xion. I'm especially digging what's going on with the purple, the stars and the whole tree base thing.

Now, I'm not sure what style you're going for here exactly, so keep in mind that these points may be null. That said, I think the face could go for a bit of tweaking anatomy wise. Thus, a quick and dirty edit:



I'm not exactly sure what I did to it, but I think a big part of it had to do with the forehead/nose. They just seemed way too large in comparison to the jaw/chin. Either that, or the chin was too small :P Anyway, I basically just squashed the face a bit, vertically, and shaved a little off the tip of the nose. Like I said, if the face (as you currently have it) was a stylistic thing, just ignore this.

Sweet stuff, regardless. Keep at it.  :y:
