Still doesn't look quite right to me. I tried to mess around with it, not sure if it looks better or not though:

I have to say, I really like the work here. I think my only personal issue is the way the breastplate comes to a point, but that's still realistic, I just wouldn't like it, so it's not really a problem.

Mirion: Thanks, that does look a little better as far as the roundness of the head goes, but I prefer the single light reflection, myself.

Here's another work: A falconet, or early cannon, ca. 14th-15th Century.

EDIT: brighter cannon version added.

the cannon is still quite dark, it took a bit to tell what end was the front.

Nice concept. I agree that it is still a bit too dark and think making it brighter but with dark outlines will help. The wood parts could use either more contrast or more outline. Sprites are kind of cartoon-like and symbolic.

Well here's my current block preliminary for the attack motion of the Landsknecht.

It's pretty horrible, but i'm kind of tired of working on it.

EDIT: okay, I lied, here's a new version with another frame.

The numbers on the filename refer to the time in-between the frames: i'm not sure which version looks quite right, myself.

Looks like it's tilting forward a bit.

Okay, here's two new versions of the falconet.

I increased the brightness and contrast on the barrel and wooden part of the cannon, and darkened the outlines for the bright version of the cannon.

I personally like the dark cannon version more, but what do you guys think?

Checkered pattern isn't really wood pattern. The top of barrels are generally the same as the sides, wooden planks side by side.

I understand that; The planks are meant to look like they're running diagonally. I may change this if that's not the way people are perceiving it.

From googling barrel, I can see that the planks aren't quite as narrow as you'd need to make them checkered, hence my critique :)

Your barrel has only been getting brighter. You need more contrast to convey a round shape. I agree with Frogger that the pixeling shouldn't be checkered, it looks akward*.
