Re: [My] Custom Units

I haven't actually tried making franken units yet. I think I'll try it out to learn more. My free-drawn attempts could be better.

Re: [My] Custom Units

In the last couple days I started working on a shadow warrior. Currently I've done the initial shading and outline for all 3 levels.

Shadow Rogue (lvl 1) --> Shadow Spy (lvl 2) --> Shadow Assassin (lvl 3)
Advancement is a bit plain, although I'm still learning.

Re: Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

I've now finished building the advancement tree for the lawful halfling. It starts with a lvl1 halfling, then lvl2 guard, and finally lvl3 captain. Soon, I will also start work on a lvl3 knight advancement for the guard. Any help, comments, and/or feedback is appreciated. The lvl2 guard's arm looks ...

Re: Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

If you plan to have the good and the evil version in a faction, then maybe change the pose or add some more variations. I've also been working on the evil variation of my halfling. Using what I currently have for my good version, I've modified the evil variation so that it has more of a crouched po...

Re: Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

use isolated white pixel to enhance certain few places, like the boots, knees , hair too. sometimes white is too much, on black it is enough to use a light grey colour. I like the pose a lot now. however, the head feels still too big like a booble-head. check other mainline sprites and compare thei...

Re: Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

Hi, a few remarks and suggestions: * For the face, people usually don't give mouth to humanoid sprites in wesnoth (except for sprites with beards) * Face again: it needs more deepness: add a few brighter pixels in the place where the nose is * In general, don't hesitate to add exagerated reflection...

Re: Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

hello there. the last 2 versions really don't look bad for your first works. regarding shading/colour pattern: the shading at first doesn't look bad either. yes it could be improved but generally ok. the shoes and knives could be more shaded with lighter colours. generally: the concept are quiet ok...

Looking For Help With Unit Shading and Colour Placement

Hello I'm pretty new to pixel art and have recently started working on a halfling-styled unit. I've read some of the tutorials on the Wesnoth site and I've also read a couple other tutorials, which I'll link to. Overall, I think my second attempt on my halfling is pretty good, but I'd like any feedb...

Re: Introduce yourself here!

Hello I've been playing Wesnoth for a while and in the last year have started to play around with eras and map creation. Recently I've started to get into pixel art. I joined the forums, because I've been working on some unit graphics and need some help with how to properly shade and colour them. I'...
