Sprite consistency in all 4 directions

on: July 19, 2017, 12:15:55 pm
Hello,
Yesterday I faced this problem where I drew a sprite of a character facing right and then I wanted to do him facing down (and up later). But I can't keep him consistent! When I shift his position, he looks really diferent. Is there a thecnique on how to do it or is it something you get good with practice?

I genrally use a 3d model rendered from different camera angles. This helps get the proportions right. It requires a suitable model, program, and the skills to use it, so it might not be for everybody, but it helps me a lot because I only need to trace over the rendered image to block out the major features while ensuring that the sprite is consistent from all angles.
