#11
Yeah I've been doing some university and getting some homework been busy so when I'm relieve or relax or have some spare time I'll do these things It will take time also I'm trying to get into drawing

Just want to be relax in a certain point later on..
Focusing on Typing up a story I will share here if I have the time!
2nd phase Practice drawing!
3rd phase Practice spriting and data changing so you can make lf2!

Sorry for grave digging but I hope we can discuss a bit in this thread until it goes away

[Image: V5gNDDJ.png] here's my 240 x 240 sprite I've been experimenting is it ready for it
to resize to 80 x 80 I changed the design

Or does it need more shading?

I tried resizing it and it looks too blurry what should I do..

I never quite mastered resizing on my own so i will leave that topic to someone else, but what i will suggest you is to defintely put more contrast in picture and i don't mean more shading, but actually more highlights. (Highlights are awesome!! remember that) Also you should put more effort into drawing shoes, i know you can do smoother lines than this. It looks clumsy atm, don't you agree?

Although this is 2D pic, while shading it, you should still consider that you are drawing a 3D object so when you decide where the light sourc is, try to precisely determine which part of the clothes will be in shadow, i mean don't just go with intial gut that tells you that a bit of left part should be in shadow so you randomly darken a bit of clothes at the left side, but really think at the amount of clothes you will shade and how they incorporate with the shadows of other part of clothes. The balance is everything.
Thinking about it and trying to solve it on your own will drastically increase your process of learning, if you get stuck go look at the way Marti Wong did it with original sprites and then try to get it as similarly as possible.

Also, try to put a bit more variations into shading. Rather than having a long, boring shading, consider wrinkles. Wrinkle or two gives completely different mood to sprite and it makes it just that much more interesting to look at.

In overal, the best advice i can give you is to look at better artists and learn from them, and practise, practise, practise... good luck :)
