[WIP] Fightan sprites

on: December 03, 2009, 05:21:58 pm
Actually trying something original instead of my usual Fire Emblem customs, so I thought I'd see what you guys think instead of just lurking.


Would be probably be 2x in a game, though I prefer 1x.
Restrictions are self-imposed, 16 colors (15 + trans) and 15-bit (31,31,31 becoming 248,248,248; I forget the term for this, uncorrected or something). Basically faux-GBA/DS
Reference

So, what do you think could be improved? :o

Seems fine to me - he's about 7 heads tall.

It's really jaggy, especially on the sheild. This would benifit greatly from some attention payed to aa. It may add a colour or two but would be really worth it imo.

I'm not adding any more colors. I could shuffle some around to get more use out of them if that's possible. They're separated like that to allow recoloring, though. (image below has example)
If you have an idea to get more colors for AA and still keep some degree of freedom with recolors go ahead and suggest it, but I'm not overly worried about AA.

I changed the shield a bit to make it cleaner, and made the hand more readable. Can't decide which glove color I prefer.


Neither color is completely final, the intent is to allow a number of versions without much work.

The white glove looks better, the darker glove has the same color as the grip of the sword making the holding of the sword look kinda strange. If your gonna use the 2nd glove I suggest you recolor the sword grip.

Edited, increased the contrast and changed the pose to what I had originally planned. Still the same palette though.


And two others

The right Magician has semi-transparent arm things on a layer above the sprite, left is the original.

I do like the style
Lighten the knight's darkest gray shade in the armor a little

The fencer is pretty good, though his Thigs seem a tiny bit too long

The semi-transperant magician sleeves dont really work all that well, it may be better if the white section behind the arms were re-coloured or darkened, atm with the sleeves it's hard to pick out what is arm and what is dress.

I'll try messing with the color more some time.
His boots don't go all the way to his knees. I could try to make that more clear though :M
I think the Magician's arms look fine. It should be much more clear during any animation where the arms are over the background, or any alternate color schemes where the dress isn't white.

Somehow completely missed some details on the Knight and Fencer.

Moved the Knight's leg armor up so the top section actually covers his knees, and the Fencer's coat is supposed to extend below his belt.

I like the length of the boots personally, however it seems that his left shin is shorter than his right, and that his right leg is in somewhat of an uncomfortable position (look at the knee in relation to the foot; a little too much twisting going on there I think).
