[WIP] the friendly neighborhood mailman

on: April 06, 2009, 09:26:20 pm
Well, some months ago I came up with the idea that I want to do a game about a mailman. The problem was, I had no idea how to make a cute mailman fitting for a game.
But last week I came up with this idea.

Critique and comments please. <3

The eyes are a little weird looking at 1x, and the whole thing seems too saturated. Other than that, looks good to me! :D

No significant changes in this edit.
Dropped it down to 15+trans, gave it some more contrast and changed the eyes.
I know you were going for very light pastellish "friendly" colours but I feel like this made it very difficult to read the character.
I really like this character and the silhouette is great. You've certainly hit your mark as I can easily envision a game wrapped around this character.
Please post more sprites for your game here as you complete them!
