Need Help redisigning a sprite.

on: January 20, 2017, 09:34:44 pm
Hi

I need help redesigning a sprite. I drew this years ago and I love the sprite, but she's a bit plain. Can you guys give a redesigned costume a try. The dimensions are 18x24 (as outlined by the dark green area) The sprite shouldn't be any bigger that... well maybe a pixel taller is ok.



I think this might be a cool design to try (I edited this from tactics ogre) but this is just an example.


Thanks

we're simply here to provide guidance. You clearly have some ideas, and the sprite itself is well done, so try your hand at your own redesign first then we can give you pointers from there!

Thanks, I get that, I really do, but I'm trying to see what others might be able to come up with, I suppose Ive designers block, and I had the sprite so long that I'm really interested in what someone else would do with the character and space provided.

I gave it a go.  It's pretty small for a lot of detail.  A few more pixels all the way around would make a big difference.
Using fewer colors with a lot of contrast may help.

Thanks Yeah it is hard, but its surprising how much variety you can get out of an 18x24 sprite these are 16x24
