my avatar... has a moogle in it! [WIP]

on: July 17, 2007, 09:58:06 pm
hey guys, decided to take a break on the dino thingy (http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=4515.0)
and work on something new.

so i decided to do something small. hmm.. okay, i thought i would do an avatar, since they're usually small. so i animated the avatar when i got all finished and here it is:


then, i tried to upload it to a forum i visit, but animated avatars are not allowed, and they must be a certain resolution. so i rearranged everything, made it smaller. here's that:


i am happy with the way it turned out, but it could probably be better. i would like some C+C on the animated moogle and my non-animated avatar!

It doesnt read very well at x1, and I would also try to detail the background somehow.
Btw, I'm just curious, are you german? ;o

1x is 100%, yes.
Imagine it as 1(x) where x is a variable that signifies the size of the picture, so 2x is 200% or 16x is 1600%.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)

hmmm well, for one, at 1x the animation looks like the sprite is simply moving up and down. Add flapping wigs to make it look like it is flying. Also, work on readability as has already been stated.

To make it look more like a moogle, I suggest making the body bigger so you can move the legs down a bit. Right now, the body looks more like teeth since the arms and legs line up. Color its nose and move the eyes further apart. Make the wings a little bit thicker and add a bit of color to them as well. Remove the darkest shade of gray from the legs so that they don't appear as dark. You already have a lot of black down there.

I'm with Crow, it kinda is hard to read it at 1x.
Also, the bigger one is a big empty, and the smaller one a bit crammed.
It's kind of hard to tell where the arms/legs are in the picture are also.
