I'm re-doing the main sprite for Elf World. Which is 'better'?

(Note: the jpg format makes the picture all fuzzy-like. )

1. Save as PNG. Even MS Pain can do that.
2. Restart again, but make a big sketch first maybe. To gain a little insight. They both don't look too good in my opinion...

However, the second one IS an improvement, to answer your question.

They aren't total master pieces, but I prefer the one on the left. The one on the right has to small of a body, and looks like a Rayman ripoff (to me at least).

I quite like the Rayman rip-off actually, though yeah his body is a teeny bit too small..

It's about time someone crossed the "uhoh its a Rayman look-a-like" barrier thing, Rayman's nothing special any more anyway. Make his face lighter too so you can see his features properly? Or make the eyes and mouth lighter.

1. I know they aren't 'masterpieces'.
2. I see what you mean about dark colors...I've always loved darker shading, though.

I'll do a re-working tonight with a bigger sprite.

You are all wrong! In fact, he didn't need to remake the entire sprite in the first place. All he needed to do was to make a new hat. Observe:

http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/7168/newhatdw2.png

As you can see, the new hat gives a more modern image to terms like elves and laprichorns. He looks alot more sexy and adventerous. If I were you, I'd make a new hat for the old sprite, or go with this one.

Edit: It seems like some sort of bug that won't allow me to show this image properly. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I had the same problem trying to post newbittorrentlogo.png. It's one of TDC's great 'features'. Just change the filename so it doesn't have the string "new" in it.

@Save as PNG. Even MS Pain can do that.

That's only in some versions of Windows XP and 2000. My other computer, with XP home, can't, but my main one, with W2k, can do GIF, JPG, and no PNG. I've only seen PNG on my dad's computer.

I know, but I assumed he uses Windows XP. And I thought that 2k could do it too, but I guess not.

Get IrfanView or sumtin'.

There!

Also, the Rayman-ish sprite might look better static, but people are going to excpect quite smoother and better animations out of it. At least I think cruddy Rayman- animations are real eye- soars.
And add some pointy ears. It is called " Elf World" for crying out loud!

All the levels are complete; I just wasn't happy with the main character and some of the bosses. And I may add a few things here and there...bonuses and such.

Clean it up. There are plenty of border parts where two same-coloured pixels are right next to each other - avoid this.

Id change the whole thing to be honest. He looks like a Ribena Blackcurrant in a robin-hood's outfit.

The new one, yes (though I haven't animated it) The old one took a while to design (haha). I originally had a more Linkish-looking character. I ended up scrapping it, though.

I'd say he looks like a rather uninteresting character if i'm being honest.

But go with whatever you feel looks best ingame.

the character's pretty featureless, and I think you need to spend some time studying how light affects the shading of an object.

Hint: The brightest part is not usually the very top, and vica versa with the bottom.

That depends on which way the light is coming from doesn't it?

 
What's wrong with pillow shading? O.o

Generally if the light source is from above, the brightest part is going to be the brightest.. right?

Yeah I think a redesign would be a good idea. Ribena Vs Rayman was the first thing I thought of when I saw it... :\ I don't think the purple skin does it many favours, regardless of originality.

It's this God-damned sprite that's bothering me. Anyone have any ideas?

Those new small ones look much better, but it could use more variety. The shading is a bit overdone. Add something to his hat, a bit lighter, shoelaces, something!

the last one is much better than the others so go with that.

you must have made all the enemy graphics abd stuff already so you should just make a character that fits in with everything else.
