you are good with the tablet, you will speed up your sprites a lot once you get used to it
I like, can't wait until you start working on humans.
Thanks, that means a lot guys. My eventual goal is to be able to make the spriting process/animation process easier, and in addition start working on some concept art for an original idea I had.
For now, have a half-eaten apple, courtesy of Macintosh!
And here's a redesign of the head of Ioan Trafalgar, one of my OCs for the aforementioned fighting game idea of mine:

For those who might find it interesting, it's called "Requiem: Ultimate Magic Tournament". Basically the story takes place in an alternate Earth where magic was discovered after a huge catastrophic meteor shower of supernatural properties struck Earth and changed... basically nature, the continents, everything: as a tentative example, parts of Western/Eastern Europe, Far East Asia, and the regions of Southeast Asia and the entire Middle East (LOL, I couldn't resist that last one, I'm Arabic ) collided together as a result of that catastrophe, creating a new continent! Still kinda fucked, but I'll try to figure this one out.
As a result of that catastrophe, dubbed "The Catalyst", humans now gained the ability to wield Arcanum; basically it's magic, and it comes in three different forms: Noxillium (derived from the Latin 'nox', meaning dark), Elementia (derived from element), and Aurola (derived from aura; holy/divine magic). But this didn't come without a danger, for while some humans became "humaniciens", others were turned into demons, while a select few turned into a race called the Absolutus; a race of people with immense power, and felt that the humaniciens were worthless. They then proceeded to wage a long war against each other called the "New Divide". The homomagiciens would have lost this 300 year long war, had it not been for the betrayal of an Absolutus named Aristotle who had the innate ability to create envoys of supreme sentience named the Solidus. He proceeded to ally himself with the humaniciens and created an army of Solidus to battle the Absolutus in their stronghold in Europe. With Aristotle's help, the humaniciens were able to annihilate the demonic army of the Absolutus, and locked away the Absolutus and their leader Zeus.
With the war over, humanity proceeded to flourish with the help, guidance and watching of Aristotle who escaped to a faraway domain to rest.
That's the backstory which I still need to organize. I'll get into the main story (Ioan's story)
The game will take place in 1567 (the idea is that these chain of events created alternate versions of many real life events, such as World Wars 1 and 2, an Ummayad Dynasty that actually remained in power, but some things will remain constant, such as the existence of the mono-theistic religions, the dinosaurs and other shit). Ioan is a Solidus who serves his liege Aristotle along with his only friend Mikayel, another Solidus. Aristotle, who senses the old dark presence of the Absolutus reemerging once again, asks Ioan and Mikayel to enter the realm of humaniciens and investigate it. The tournament will be a part of the story, with the duo sensing the dark energy emanating from it, but it won't be the entire story (thanks Alex/Sin- for suggesting that :3)
^^Once I figure out some more stuff, I'll post a sketch of the game's world map and rewrite the story again.
Also apologize for the 2nd pic's quality, fucking Samsung Galaxy Mini camera sucks flaccid donkey dicks.
