my first sprite :P

Post by nehuen »

Hi this my first sprite is a kind of undead barbarian, based in Sion from league of legends. loincloth and ax are franken. Pardon my bad English. in my humble opinion I think it looks good exept the legs that do not convince me it looks like. any advice is welcome. Use it if you want to.

I wno't blame you for bad english, as I'm not a native english speaker to :P

Overall he looks good. But he seem to "fresh" to be undead. More rotten flesh and some bone / less muscle would be fine. I had issues with legs to, I won't be of any help for that :lol2:

There's a proportion problem with his left hand, that seem far to small, IMHO.

I think i'll steal some body parts for my own bare chested barbarians :twisted:

Is That Died recently lol. to make it look more undead you can change the color palette very easily. I do not want to put parts of bones because they would be less barbaric, and much like warcraft in my opinion

Emphasis mine. :) Especially for your first sprite. The musculature is especially well-done. The part of the skull that shows on (his) left side is the same color as the armor, though, which confuses the viewer into thinking that he is wearing a small piece of armor on one side of his head.

That's quite remarkable for a first sprite. If you want it to be clear that he's undead, though, I'd say you should definitely give him a change of skin colour at least.

Something about his posture looks odd, too. I think his right foot (the one on the left) needs to come down a pixel or two in the armoured versions, in which the feet are level. In the others the foot is just a pixel lower, but they look much better to me (although the bottom of their left foot looks strangely formed. It could do with some tweaking, IMO).

:hmm:
Very nice work, but it crossed my mind that if this unit levels up, then you might want to see if you can make his advancement units have more of an undead-like look. (I.E. As levels go up, so does the appearance of bones/other icky dead features. :wink: )

Also, the level 2 unit looks like it has some sort of stitching (underneath the metal strap-like piece) in the center of its body. Intentional or not, it gives the barbarian more of an undead look (in my perspective), and refining that/'deepening' (so to say) it would make look like it's been cut open deeply, hence adding ever more of the undead look.

I'm not much of an art critic (save for showing a few friends the basics of spriting), but personally, I'd think they would have more of an undead look. Either way, it's very excellent work, infinity x10 more better than my first sprite was. :D

looks nice!

Try to make a ranged barbarian, you like to have a good hand to make some different sprites than the default proportions! ;)

Very nice, but I have to agree with what Archanix says. You should make the flesh rot as he levels up.

The barbarian sprites are nice, also they doesn't impact their level.

For saying something, every barba sprite looks like a level inferior than the said in the name of each sprite. The barba 2 looks like very good to be a lv1 unit, also it doesn't like that strong to be a lv2 (comparing it with many lv2 units)

Also maybe the lv4 barba can like the level in it's name, but it does like more right for a lv3 unit.
