Iso RPG Base WIP

on: November 30, 2009, 05:41:04 pm


Hey guys. It's been a while since I've posted on here. 

Just a few things, 1:  I know that it is very muscular.  XD  That is the style I am looking for in the game.  2:  I know the legs/feet look odd.  And another thing, I can't quite get the hang of how I'd do the walking animation.  x.x  Help me out guys! :D

Edits and crits appreciated!

Hey there Ninjafro. What perspective projection are you using? Iso, oblique, etc?

To me, he looks like he has brown lines painted on him. Why the extreme muscle definition contrast? I understand it's your "style", but it doesn't prevent it from looking odd.

Your chosen method of defining muscles relies too much on linework and not volumes - try using shadows and highlights to convey muscular forms on his body instead.

Feet of frontal sprite are nearly at 90, feet of rear sprite are like 10. Front's right fist should reach lower, to rest on thigh like left.


Helping you with animation is more feasible if you at least post your animation WIP.

The character also has a very wide stance.

The title states that the base is in an isometric perspective. o.o

Maybe it does, but you don't stand like this do you?

I'm basically lost on how to even try to animate the walking state for this base.  XD  This is my first trying to make anything isometric.

All of these attempts at animating the walk are futile...I can't even figure out where to start in animating a walk for an iso graphic...
