I normally design my own sprites 100%, but I'm finding it hard to get the style, design and proportions for a cartoony sidescroll character.

So I thought I'd use the Link sprite from Zelda as a base.

I've tried to do a lot of fundamental changes, but do you think it's still a tad too close to the original?

I myself have no problem if sprites are ripped or modified, as long as they look good and fit in well then its fine with me.
I don't think it looks too close to the original, looking good! may i ask what game its for?

seems fine to me, Try not to use in any actual sprites, although a link cameo could work i guess and make the nintendo fanboys happy.

He didn't sa he modified the original, he just used the base to make his OWN pixel art with the right proportions.

he did modify the original. he hasn't changed the arms or feet AT ALL. except for the colour. if you delete the entire body and draw the rest from there it will be passable.

If you hadn't have mentioned it, I wouldn't have even noticed, it looks completely different.

Minotauro: Yeah, it's just a copy of the Link sprite with a lot of modifications. The head has the biggest mods to it, but the back was re-done, I gave her a bit more of a skirt than Link has (although this is seen more on the animated versions, when she's jumping), and of course she has a bit of boobage where there was none before, lol.

But other than that, yeah, the feet, arms and most of the shadow are the same, lol.

I don't really know what it's for yet, but it's a dream to animate with. I miss all the days I spent making Zelda fangames, lol - I'd forgotten how easy it was to modify and animate the Zelda sprites!

If I can find a free GIF-animator then I'll port the animations into a gif file and post them up. I'm kinda proud of them, cos at least the animations are all my own work

Movies13 at http://jansfreeware.com/jfgraphics.htm#movies is okay, I think. Making the animaions by importing still images is the best way to animate in there, though.

A sidescroll character? You may be going the wrong way by ripping three-quarter overhead characters, then.

Yeah. And as long as you don't claim it's entirely your own work and then act like a spoiled bitch when you get called on it, nobody really minds. Tracing certainly beats ripping if you can't work from scratch.

Cool, thanks for the comments!

Radix: Yeah, the partial overhead has taken a little tweaking with the other graphics, but it doesn't really notice now
