A bandit know as Imp

on: August 20, 2008, 10:48:54 pm
Well, haven't posted here in a while and wanted your guys opinion on a sprite!

To set the record straight, Imp is a character for a game I plan on making, if I can learn some C++!


Comments and Constructive Crtiticism would be highly appreciated!

Some shading would be nice. If you still want to still with just 4 colors then I'd drop the pants color for a highlight/shadow color. I'd prefer a character with volume rather than pants any day of the week.

Well, I wanted all images for the game to have very limited colors, 1-3, maybe 4.

The sad part is, I don't have an actual pallet to work with.

Here is the updated version:

The pants are now gone, his color count is 4 colors.

I counted transparent as a color. So now it'd have 5. It looks better.... maybe drop the highlight for pants. Use the black as a shadow color for the pants. Palettes are important, if you don't have one yet at least keep in mind what kind of colors you'll be using.

Ok, I have changed the black to a darker grey, and got rid of the highlight grey, product:

Very cute character. I like the second version, but with pants.
My english sucks.

Quickly played with him. Gave him pants too! I figured you should imply more dimension, I think the head is a sphere.

he's more a silouhetto than a character at the moment. no hair ? no nose ? no mouth ? unsure whether we see hair spikes or ears (though i'd bet on ears).
still, there's is clearly potential. Maybe 3 colors is over-restrictive here. As for the palette, i'd suggest you give Arne's a try (it should be in the featured' chest, iirc) or maybe pick in the NES palette if you prefer.

Better with the light.
I retouched some of your pixels, itīs because I like more the light from above.

My english sucks.

Current version, using Arne's pallete:

He is more defined, I would've used the grey highlight, but the contrast between the base and the highlight is to great.
As you can see, his cones are ears, and he as a mouth.
