not a great edit, but i think smooth and cute will serve you better:



you don't have to go all really simple like that, but at least look where i got rid of junk.  your guy's entire midsection is useless noise atm, and the jacket is choppy too.

btw, what is the characer?  it's like halfway between dragon quarter ryu and god knows what else.
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

Thanks Adarias. Shoulda posted the ref. XD



He's a child, so I shrunk him, and his jacket is kind of bunchy so there's my excuse for jacket noise.

Middle was attempt at the wrap.

I'll try to polish it up a bit for practice, though I don't necessarily like things too smooth.  :)

well smooth and textured are a matter of preference, but readable and not are less-so (in an rts or something you can sacrifice readability to a point...altough even then weapons and color should be obvs...)

Anyway, you don't have to make the character supersmooth, but i feel that some steps towards clearing up the character should be taken, and this includes ramps that have straighter values, fewer"spike" pixels (the ones that leave a form creating a jagged shape or worse noise), and a simplificiation of the waist-region.

not really, you have have bunchy clothes and still keep it smooth and readable :).

good luck with this!


sorry for being off topic for a moment....



that's ryu from dragon quarter several years ago.  my only question is, why would the same crappy design come up more than once? >.<

SIMON!! Not bad at all. :D

Just a liiiittle noisy in the jacket (esp his right sleeve) and the stomach wrap needs to be cleaned up. Also, he's missing his ankle wraps.... I think you could include those without making it too messy....

I might do an edit later, mainly because I love Gurren Laggan. :P


PS: (OT) IMO, Ryu is ugly and Simon looks way different.... >_>
