So, I’ve made a ton of WIPs, and even a few completed ones. Guess I’ll show them off in the order I made them:
Made a set of dragon armor for my pixel guy. mainly made to create the appearance of an RP character. There was one more after this, but it was basically just the same guy with what were supposed to be a bunch of reference shots at different angles. Never go around to it.
I started by copying the first two characters from Soul Knight It’s a good free game, go get it. to get a feel for the style. I then made some more characters in the same style, and started animating.
Very much a WIP, at this point being about 33 frames long
I made this rather quickly as it doesn’t have the same type of movement as the above animation does. It’s my new avatar, and came out pretty well imo. Might revisit it to improve on the rather bland background though.
Anyways, I would like to try and make more complicated sprites, but these are fun to mess around with for now while I practice and read up on tutorials and stuff.
Now some self critiques to end the post:
- The background is horribly bland and featureless
- I just now realized the monster in my WIP animation is shadowless, the one interesting thing about my backgrounds
- some of the colors look too similar, making it hard to pinpoint details. Mainly the eyes hidden in the mouth of the transformed Dragon Armor (Last Sprite)
- My normal human continues to look unnaturally stiff, although that might change when I go back to them.
What are your thoughts?
Oh yeah, I’m thinking about taking requests to make short animations of your character in the soul Knights style. Describe your character (Words or pictures work) and briefly explain what you want them to do (Nothing too long, and don’t make it too complex, these guys don’t have arms, and their legs are stubs) and I’ll try to do my best. Currently I’ll take the first 5
This will also make my topic more popular…
