Character Template (RPG)

on: June 14, 2008, 07:36:27 pm
Hi there,

although I have been pixeling for quiete a long time now, this is my first serious attempt at a person in the typical rpg-perspective. I have noticed that in most rpgs the characters (and especially horizontally walking ones) look like they were visualized in a side-view perspective. Have you ever noticed how many RPG-Maker sprites are used in fanmade platform games? :D So I tried to figure out, how to get the authentic look of a character seen from an 45 angle. And here it is:





And here is my problem. :yell: I want this one not to look like a platform guy, but I have some trouble with the feet. I hope you have some advice for me.  ;D

Hey,
well, when you say 45 degree angle, I assume you mean the camera is pointing down so you'll have a regular isometric view. So the side view the feet look okay to me, but to me, the far shoulder missing and the eye being very horizontal, the top half of the image looks like a platformer profile view to me...
here's an explanation of what I mean..
any help?
