uncleshelby's art

Post by uncleshelby »

This is just a thread where I will post all my art, and (hopefully) get feedback.

The aim of this thread is so that I can get better at Wesnoth art, and hopefully I will.

This is my first sprite ever:

And this is my second sprite, a human flag-bearer:

And finally, my "Elvish Guard":

Thanks for any feedback!

Hmmm.... if that eye is really floating, where does it drop the shadow? Right know it looks as it was lying on the ground.
And that flag... rather looks like a snow shovel.

The elve's arm and shield need more shading and outlining

Now I think I've got it!

P.S. It looks more blurry on the forums than in the GIMP.

Much better. I suggest you also add some outlining to your shield

A little better. I think the problem is that your using a lot of light colors along the edges, giving it a more fuzzy feel

I added more dark colors around the edge, is it better?
