Game sprite

on: January 28, 2017, 03:41:20 am
Hi everyone,
This is a sprite I made for a game in idle position. I wasn't entirely happy with the left arm, and the legs were a huge challenge. Leave you thoughts or critique. Thanks!  :)

I did a little edit. Your piece is very minimalistic, so its hard to give actual critique. there is just not a lot of stuff, you have no shading or interesting clothes. Something that can definitely be improved is your colours tho, you need to change Saturation and Hue too, search tutorials on color theory in pixel art and just color theory in general for that.

Thanks CFKaligula! I'll definitely take the time to play around with the colors and saturation. Thanks again for taking the time to reply!  :)

I changed the colors, but I didn't feel like adding shading (yet, I might later), I want to keep it simple. Here is the second character, changed his colors too.

Your char design is really boring, even if its just a normal guy, he needs something to make him stand out. even just a shirt with a text on it could be enough.

I don't really have much to say about the art, it just looks kind of unfinished without the shading.

I'll try out some shading today. I also plan to change the grey shirt, it's not appealing to me.

Looks nice! My only critique is that it needs shading and maybe a darker outline.
Signature.

I haven't checked in on this thread in a while, but I drastically changed the style of the character. Here is the new version:
