couple of sprites

on: August 09, 2007, 05:11:20 pm
i thought it would be interesting to show people how i work (not that anybody probably cares!), so ive made 1.5 complete sprites of a couple of my characters with the progress steps.  i have also blocked out some very basic mockup map - which you will be able to see develope into something a bit less crappy (i hope).

would like some good ol' fashioned constructive critism please.

both of the sprites, but especially the second one are off-balance. They are leaning too much and would fall down realistically.  The anatomy on bearman is unclear, especially the arm, but also the ribs. Looks like you made a huge shoulder and then put something like a limb after it, it really doesn't work. It seems to be anatomy studies are in oder. The bead of wolfman should cast a shadow on his chest underneath, as should the chest on the abs, so on. The ribs are really random right now. The muscles on the legs seem invented too. The far arm is just a tendril, no visible segmentation between the parts of an arm.
