Help me do shoes

on: December 01, 2016, 10:56:20 pm
Hi guys,
I decided to change my sprite from this to this I wanted to make it bigger so I could be able to give it more realistic animations. I'm going to fix the arms later on (they're wayyy too straight), but I might need some help with that. Right now, I need help with making boots. I can never seem to do shoes, even when drawing. Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks! :)

Hey ChillTaco! Those are really good! I'll probably end up using that style, since I like them a lot. Thanks! ;D

Alright, so I fixed the sprite up, does any one have any opinions or critique on anything I can fix?

Just some ideas for some changes. I made his shirt and pants brighter, I do this a lot and its purely stylistic, but I think it looks a lot better. If his clothers were so dark i couldn't add shading, so i kind of had to. So I also added some shading to actually give him some depth. Then I also added Anti-alias, this is also style but it does look really good here because its such a large sprite. I also added an outline around his whole body, just to keep it consistent.  A lot of this is just my opinion on how i would do it so dont take it as how it should be done.

Thanks CFKaligula :)! Your style looks very cool, I think I'll use it when I fix up my sprite more. I like to combine other peoples styles with mine to see how it looks.
