standing sprite, and a gun too! (now anim)

on: March 05, 2008, 05:21:12 pm
maybe some of you remember this guy?:



well, i like the way he turned out. unfortunately, the size restrictions set by the developer i was working with did NOT like the way he turned out.
this was kind of both our faults. bad communication.

in any case, i'm attempting to resize him. here's where i'm at:



he is saying that the face is a little unrecognizable, and i'm just trying to tell him i couldn't really define it any more, because i wanted the proportions to stay intact.
so i'm turning it over to the community of amazing artists to bash it till it's great.

after all, you turned my run into a run from this:



edit: oh yeah, i have an unhealthy obsession with arne's palette.

I think it's posible to have good definition even within that canvas and attempting natural proportions.

Snake would be a good example

And I believe so are the sprites from this MAME game I only know as "Tengai"

hope the inspiration's any good!

i'd love to see some animations from that game. never heard of it. looks like they all have personality in their runs.
aside from that, i want to eat that snake sprite. just cook it and eat it, and hope that i somehow learn to animate a smooth run that tiny.

when i get to that point, i'll definitely be looking at it.

I tried a little edit. The leg being so straight kinda bothered me, it looked awkward. Also, I tried to define the shape of the face more than the features, I think it looks okay this way but it might just be me...



Hopefully I helped here...
