hisclothes need more shading, try to look at Nameless cloth, in the intro, when he throws it away. Also work a bit more on his face, it's still looking like Rock, who has stolen the clothes from Dante.
i wouldn't mind if you would make a high-res char out fom Dante, but i bet the prob is, it's to much for you or takes more time than you have.
the pro is that you could have more time, more space to make a proper dante face and so on.
Still you're the one who makes it and if you give a fiddlestick about my statement, i don't care. It's just my opinion, but you're the one who makes it
P.S. don't take it hardly, i know that making or editing sprites is a Celestia ly pain in the ass. Still, i would be happy, if you would mind my comments
P.S.2 take your time, really, i know that you're more advanced than me by looking at your sprites, but sometimes even pros don't take their time and the char's look like shiet
(that's why i try my crappy sprites, without showing them around )
made of ripped hearts waving far away,
only my memory stays still, as i say.
Looking to sky,
oh, how pony y ponies wished to fly?
i don't know,
beacuse life's harshness is a mainpart of Celestia 's show
