Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

So, now I have a bit of a dilemma. Early on in the campaign, her cloak and mask get pulled off. She was wearing them to hide her elvish appearance, in an attempt to be like a human. I had planned to leave them off for the rest of the campaign... but I like the hooded sprite better. So, any opinions ...

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

Unless anyone points out anything glaring, I'm inclined to call these two done. I'll put them away and massacre their animations later. :) So, here are the latest! gawien-thief.png gawien-thief-hooded.png I did use frankensteining for her shadow; it's taken from the mainline thief. She's mainly hidi...

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

Big changes this time! gawien-thief.png gawien-thief-hooded.png I'm still not terribly happy about un-hooded's right arm. It looks stiff... or something. I changed hooded's cloak. I'm considering changing hood and cloak to dark green. Not forest green, a slightly desaturated olive-y green. The entir...

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

I was hoping that angle issue would clear up on its own. I thought it might end up like a Taekwondo fighting stance... it didn't. Plus, that's not the kind of stance I want. I want her to look more... casual, but poised. I'm off to look up female sprites. :) I think the right arm's just a bit thin. ...

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

Changed the right arm, but I'll wait on the highlights until I hear opinions on that arm.

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

Thanks for your take on it. I kind of didn't like the hair either, but with more consideration, it's actually natural. Her hood gets pulled off, so I think the static would poof her hair at least that much. The hood is meant to be pretty far forward. She doesn't want anyone to really see her face, a...

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

You're right... She's based off the Elvish Hunter, where she'd be holding a sword in about that position. But she's a shady character, at this point... a thief... she'd probably have her arm lower, more like the mainline thief. She's in more of a fencing pose right now... fencing with a little dagge...

The head on the second is still smaller, but it might be because elves have poofy hair. Maybe...
They probably need more work; I'm not quite sure where... Critique, anyone?

Re: Embuck's sprite attempts

Thanks for the advice. I don't like to copy things directly, but I'll have a closer look at those hoods. In fact, looking at the one in Vyncyn's avatar, I see that I could use shadow above the face... I'm also going switch the sword out for a dagger, and darken the un-hooded one's boots. I'll be bac...

Re: Not really sure where to go from here

I'm pretty new at sprites myself, but I'd say start by changing the viewing angle. You want to look slightly down at the unit; rather than level with him.

Embuck's sprite attempts

Hello, all who enter here. This is a thread for my feeble first attempts at sprite art, mainly for my under construction campaign. So far I have two sprites, both of the same character, though at different times. gawien-thief.png gawien-thief-hooded.png I realize they need work. Any criticism for pr...
