Moonday era-my new image

Post by Soranonigen » May 21st, 2018, 6:39 pm

Hello,
I'm adding my new sprite for Moonday era. I just wanna know your opinon and tips (especially for shading unit and coloring weapons).
Btw. I must add axe and maybe change shield. And this is my second unit which I do in pixel art style.

Hello,

This unit looks nice. My opinion (not based on so much experience though) is the following :
* You should add an overline to the leftmost tusk (from our point of view) otherwise, it will be odd in game.
* Usually, people add team color somewhere (here it would be most likely on the pants.

I noticed three things right away.
You might want to move the character a bit mir to the right, so it's horizontally in the center of the image.
Also, a shadow is missing.
And on the right of the sprite, there are fragments of transparent pixels. Definitely remove them.

Nice work on that otherwise. :)

You are right... Team color will be on pants. I like doing if with another color and than to re-color with palette for TC.
The tusks are my biggest problem now :lol: But thanks I will try change it. ;)

the head + fur looks well done though the horns and pink nose could need some more shading.
the boot + chest plate look ok too i guess.
shield was taken from EoS-Minotaur so that one is solid too.

pants+ axe need work:
color too much teal on axe
axe wood should be behind unit, not before, maybe darker wood too
pants need darker shades on left side, dont feel connected to the boots

over whole nice idea, reminds me alot to the minotaur rouser from EoS

Thank you,
I'm going to try to change it :)
Yes... They are little bit similar... I used this minotaur like main pattern.
