It's been a while since I've made a decent sprite. Last half-decent thing I did was probably three months ago when I helped my cousin draw some sprites for a speed build.

(Yes, I realize I should have blurred/smeared the lines coming out of the back of the running rodent's personal whirlwind.)

So I thought I'd build another unit. This still needs some adjustment to the anatomy and pose, but I figured I'd post it anyway.

I was going for a rapier stance with the feet, but I'm not sure it turned out well... The purple will eventually turn into TC

And as if I didn't already have enough on my plate...
I don't know what it is with Girgistian and awesome orcs...

... and the linework I inevitably have to clean up...

If ever I learned a lesson from this, it's always always clean up the lines before I start shading. :eng:
So cleaning up linework is what this piece has in store for me. Which means: To the Back Burner it goes.

Any comments on the direction the human sprite is going?

The feet are a good start, but if he's in a rapier stance his whole upper body needs to be at an angle too.
I drew in where his shoulders (yellow) and torso (orange) should be. Also made some small corrections on his feet (red, obviously); the right foot should face south to south-east and the other one south-west.

Ah! Good point, It hadn't occurred to me. :) I'll be working on that.

I'm having a bit of trouble with getting the body to look like it's sideways. Oh well. It'll do I guess. I may use this as another one of my characters if it turns out well.

Well, changed the hairdo a bit. It was looking too much like the fencer. I'm working on the weapons now. Not sure what I want him to wield... A rapier maybe?

Edit: Whoah... Triple post. Should I merge them?

It looks like he is looking up or is getting choked by the cape. :P

:lol: I tweaked the head slightly, but I'm thinking perhaps I should frankenstein a head onto him... and some weapons. Either that or put some real effort into the thing. Maybe I'd better draw a guy with a helmet next; add some variety to the units I draw. So far it's just been the elusive type.

Here's that guy with the helmet I mentioned... After reading this by Vyncyn, I took a shot at it with a UMC orc unit.
I just kind of threw the cloak on, because it's the easiest method of team coloring I know of :whistle:
I'll probably try adding a plume, or something else instead.

You should use more dark colors, that warrior looks like a spaceman. Don't worry about outlines too much, except maybe for the left side of the sprite (assuming eastern light-source).
