Did a lot of messing with the robe.



The previous version didn't work out very well when I cleaned it up. I run into that problem a lot :yell:

I much prefer this armor design, though the waist could be cinched in a bit, he seems awfully bulky. I do like the other more symetrical/flows away from him style on the ''skirt' more than this current one though, It added some balance.

Fleshed out the robes a bit more.

Not sure about the bulky comment, maybe it was the lack of shading on the mid-section.

I think it's because his chest is so wide compared to his head. In the first one you posted his chest is broken up by a lot of the little details and things sticking out, making it obvious it's just decorative armor or whatever that's giving him so much bulk, but here, it looks more like a tight coat or breastplate, making him look very massive.

Well I toned him down a bit chest-wise. I was having some trouble with the robes so I did the old cop-out and just covered part of it up with something else. This is probably closer to what I wanted originally anyway.



*EDIT*

I had to bring the sword in closer because the sprite didn't fit the spritebox for my game.



I got a LCD monitor and it really changed the look of the colors. The black is really noticeable now, almost so much I want to add another shade in between. How do the colors look to everyone else?
