Help to get me started... Gothic lolita.

Post by Rozard » April 11th, 2011, 11:17 am

Hi, I like making units for wesnoth and I also love anime, so I was thinking to throw a challenge to my self and make a Elegant gothic lolita unit with Demonic doll or something, oh! and lower levels too... I dont really know where I gonna use it, since it dont really fit in my factions that I working on.

But I have difficulties to get started, so if someone happens to have young girl sprites and put them here, I would pleased.
And when I get some results done I post them here.

I my self am bit slow and works are usually average level... or atleast I think so...

Ps. my first time posting here, hope everything have gone according to the rules...

  1. Study the anatomical proportions and other artistic conventions of the Wesnoth spriteart in the existing sprites.
  2. Make a lineart sketch of your sprite using the sprite proportions.
  3. Once you have the sketch, start mapping it onto the 72x72 pixel grid.
You can post the results of every step on this thread, the feedback will guide you on.

There are some goth chicks in Era of Magic, I think it was Tharis faction - you can find them in EoMa thread somewhere here.

Well, I asked IF someone hapens to have young female sprites, since every existing female sprites have heavy dressed...

if you look at the slavers 'Entertainer' line in mercenaries (or in ageless), is that something that might help?
also archers in archaic era - phantoms
and water nymphs in ageless..dunno what faction are those
just browse through ageless in debug mode (in the menu of creating units seems to be the easiest to look through quickly)

if there's nothing tere that suits your tastes I doubt you'll find anything more naked in here xD
Like cats? I've made a whole faction of them to kick ass with!
Don't like cats? I've made a whole faction of them to kick their asses! So everyone's happy :)
Felinian faction is part of the Beyond Southern Hells era

She has some shading on her hair but nothing on skirt. And the laces(?) are going unevenly, as if the design was asymmetrical.

She reminds me of American McGee's Alice in Wonderland.

becourse she has a knife? well I was planning that lvl 3 versio would have long grayish hair and no knife... maybe even fly in mid air by dark force, oh it would be awesome.
