Headache's Unit Sprites

Postby Headache » June 15th, 2009, 5:28 pm

Here are some unit sprites I made (and frankensteined). Any comments?

I am mainly interested to polish the better ones.

I think the second sprite is by far the best--the bottom is recognizably from the female mage line, but the top looks more or less new, and quite well done. The open shirt thing looks like it's falling off of her though--it should come together more in the middle, either without the gap at all or tied together with some sort of laces. Nice work on the hair.

The dwarf lord's shield-shoulder and helmet look like they're too far to our left--as though I'm looking at them from a different angle than the rest of the head and body. Maybe that's true of the original too, but it looks wrong.

The swords on every unit in the goblin line look too big for them, and are at the wrong angle. The hands are still set up to hold a spear vertically, so either the sword should be vertical too, or the arm should change. Otherwise, a pretty decent Frankenstein.

The third sprite on the second row is pretty good too--the body and weapons seem well-positioned. The hair looks kind of sloppy though--not naturally wild, just confused.

I hope this helps. I recommend learning to sprite from scratch though--it's fun!

Sadly. I think this was the intent. Theres a disturbing little dot there. It could be a stray pixel if it wasn't surrounded by skin tone...

Sorry for my bad English but are you talking about a nipple? I think the main problem then is that it seems a bit displaced, or if not the pose is strange.

Anyway, I don't have so good pixel vision.
It is ok to correct me if my English is too bad.

Oh, my. You're right. Must be work of my subconscious mind. :oops:

Here's little more decent clothing for her.

And thanks for the other comments too. I'll see if I can fix those things.

Well, I think it's up to the artist to chose which parts are visible. And from his post, it seems the nipple was not a nipple but a lost pixel, so fixing it should not be seen as puritanism.

Nice job. Her hair could use a bit more contrast though.

For the record, I wasn't making a point about propriety in the first place--I meant that it was physically impossible for her shirt to be resting that way.

I was just kidding. Very nice sprites. I finally found the stray pixel. Make sure nobody tells the inquisition. :wink:

the first goblin is probably my favorite. The helmet looks good on him, you just need to shorten the sword a little.

In the future, once a potential decency issue has been pointed out to the artist, only one person needs to comment on it for him to fix it, and no one else needs to chime in, particularly after it has been fixed.

Did some small editing. The goblin sword angle is a hard thing to fix..
