Blake Belladonna (RWBY) RPG Style Sprite

on: January 31, 2017, 02:06:18 am
Hey everyone! So I'm fairly new to pixel art and need some feedback.
This is my RPG style take on a character from my favorite show, RWBY.
Her name is Blake Belladonna and she's one of my favorite characters so i thought "Why not try to draw her?".

Here's a pic of her from the show:

 Here's my sprite:


Give me some feedback and criticism!
Thanks!

fixed the image Link. ou have to rightclick on the image, show the image and then copy the url.If you copy the url from imgur it simply won't work.

I'd recommend making her a bit taller.  Right now, her head is a bit flat, and you could fit a lot more detail into her clothes if there were more space.  You also have a sort of outline, but it's way to close to the black you're using for more of her detail.  It's not really necessary to have at this size, either.

Here's the redone sprite:


I also need feedback on the eyes, as i'm having a hard time trying to get them right.

Good improvement! For eyes, they can be tricky at this scale, try looking at comparable art on google forideas
PSA: use imgur

Your work so far looks good! For details on smaller sprites, especially when making eyes, anti-aliasing is super helpful. I used the gray from the cloak to smooth out the harsh borders of the skin.



I personally find it easier to make sprites from a slightly higher perspective, so I also moved some of the features down/reworked the hair. This is a different style than the one you're working with, but I hope it gives you some ideas!

Wow. Yours is pretty good but not really how she looks in the show. Her "cloak" is more of a wing type design and she looks too dark and mischievous in yours. Also, yours has too much grey in the face in my opinion. Thanks for the criticism!

I'm sorry to say so but... she don't have cat ears, right? It's a ribbon.
Maybe it's worth a try to give her a smaller head like in dotodrymo's edit.
