I made this sprite long time ago and I wish I can make sprite sheets and characters
The reason I'm stuck is because Idk how to shade

Any advice and tips How can I improve I want to measure up in a level like you guys.
I'm just looking through tutorials and trying to help myself.

There's a massive selection of tutorials here:

I haven't done sprites in like forever but it takes some serious time and patience if you really want to make really good sprites.

If your problem is shading, I completely understand you. it's my problem too! like zabobula said, tutorials and practice help.
make sure to check my sprites!
I guarantee your eyes won't hurt! At least, they won't hurt too much :p !

Take note of the materials the objects (ex. clothes) are made of. Different materials reflects light differently.

Check these links out, some of them touches the lighting, shading, an how to make sure that your shades are of the right values:

go with 2 color shading for a start.
as zabobula mentioned we have a bunch of tutorials here, which explain how its done already...

here a quick simple shading, take a look at it, observe and DO IT on your own.
try to replicate and see how your sprite turns out.

apart from the shading, we usually dont see both ears in LF2 sprites.

normally, yes, but i guess(and i'm hottible at guessing) that his sprite is facing the screen.

@the mad maskman

normally the first frame is the standing frame,which is always facing left(not seeing both ears)

So Arcane took that concept pic, and made it into a sprite.

i was not talking about arcane's sprite, was just talking about the pose of the first pic. if he's facing you, it would be normal to see both ears. but well, it's true that it doesen't fit in lf2.

Well. your welcome.but its not the right direction,its the left > direction. just for your to remember,btw your old spirte is lot cooler.now thats old means you will get to make a more cooler concept sprite than the first right?

So give it a go!!!
