Need help with sprites

on: August 14, 2007, 02:21:52 pm


i cant seem to make a good side sprite of the front view
the sprites will be used for a ninja-based game like naruto so it has to look more anime-stylish :3

so i ask you to give me some hints please =/

I know that this isn't what you asked for, but I edited the front view a bit to be more 'anime-ish'. Basically, I added another shade to smooth out some of the more jagged lines and modified the shading to look a bit more cel-shaded.



What you have so far for a side view looks fine to me, just color it in. And, incidentally, the arms and legs are much too spread apart.

I think the main problem with the side view you did is anatomical. In the side view the little guy is standing stiff as a plastic doll. Plus, there's not enough volume on his chest and belly. Check out my quick edit:

I've simply added volume (guts, bones) and bent his limbs a little so he'd look more relaxed.

Side views are tricky. I usually Google some reference poses when necessity arises, even if my character is cartoony.

Cheers,

the darker shades you have near the outline makes the outline very jaggy when viewed at normal zoom, maybe lighten these colours or remove them?
