Bag Man Buddy

on: August 27, 2008, 03:08:29 am
Hi! I'm wondering if you could critique my sprite.
I have 2 months and a half doing pixel art && sprites.



And I want your opinion about it.

Thank you all.

Haha! i really like the character, and i think you have a bit of a peculiar style thing going on, i do however, think there are some problems with it.

Let me clarify;

- A bit of abuse of inner black lines; especially around the underwear area.
- Lack of proper antialiasing, the arms for example are full of jaggies.
- Bad color usage; for instance, you have a whole bunch of "brown tones" in the bag/face area that are barely noticeable.
- Bad color/pallette integration; for instance, the brown used on the head, could be used on the "skin tones" as a darker shade.
- Need of more contrast between shades (in relation to the above points)
- Weird shading; There are some parts where the shading/lightsource just doesn't make sense.
- Readability issues; In the cape for example, the texture just reads as randomness/artifacts
- There's some posture and anatomy issues; For instance, with the legs/feet, lenght, and the way it connects to the hip/waist.


Keep up the good job,  :y:

Thank you, could you please make me an edit to see how it's right?
 
I think i only learn if someone do this, y will aprecciate that. Thank you for critique my sprite  :y:

And he's kind of deformed, i do it with that purpose. But if you don't think this is right, it's okay.

Edit, i had modified the underwear for a new one that has minus black lines

I believe this is sorta what he meant, it is very rough, but should give you a idea.

When working with white clothe light blue makes a good shadowing and outlining color.
also replacing a black outline with varying shades of color will allow you to give more definition to your art.
