Need help with perspective

on: November 07, 2018, 01:37:47 pm
I need to alternate the first mage to make it look proper for a top down view (45 degree). The second picture is my result which doesn't really look like it's 45 degree. Could you please tell me what's wrong with it?


This is one of my first sprites, so critique of the sprite in general is appreciated too.

You're on the right track, but you should push the view even more. The shoulders can appear to emerge partway up the head, and we'd see more of the top of the head. Everything should be foreshortened, and elements that appear horizontal in side view (such as the bottom of the robe and the sleeves) should appear curved around the figure.

Here's an edit, but even this can be pushed more depending on the particular sort of look you want.
