Hey guys!So I've been studying the style that French Bread uses for their DBFC and UNIB sprites and I finally got the hang of it.It's actually MUCH easier for me to sprite in that style instead of CPS2,CVS,CPS3 etc. actually, due to the simple but effective lightsource and shading techniques. So, that gave me an idea, since Ghost Killer and I have a bunch of WIP French Bread style sprites in progress, why not start a theme thread for that style? I really wanna see what you guys can come up with. It's basically modern Anime shading, but pixelated I'll sumbit the first sprite:Issei from High School DxD with a modified BOOSTEH GEAH! by me (season 3 just started btw w00t)Just to give you some examples of how the shading and style works look at this:As you can see here it can reveal a couple of things about the style:1: The lightsource comes from above in most sprites and sometimes in front in some sprites.2: Big eyes with that look fierce with Anime-Waifu standard pupils (very exaggerated) for young Shounen/Shoujo type characters like Kirito, Asuna, Taiga, etc. It's the most typical eye style that most characters have VERY big chibi style eyes for loli's like Kirino and Tomoka's, Really small, squinted and focused looking eyes for serious characters like Akira, Selvia, Kojou and Tatsuya.3:There are just 4 levels of shading, BUT you only use the boldest shade on little details like buttons or creases4:As said above you only use the Boldest shading in the little details, NOT outlining the character. As you can see, there are no bold outlines on the edges of the characters, making them kinda look flat.5: As you can see from their heads, they all follow the same circle pattern lightsource throughout all of the characters, regardless of the hairstyle.6:Colors are slighlty unsaturated, so use slighty pale colors that don't have much contrast when it comes to light colors like skin or pale blue.7:The eyes and eyebrows ALWAYS go on the top layer of the face, on top of the hair and everything, no exceptions.8:Remember to always look at typical anime artworks and media for good reference on the proportions that they use, because Frech Bread practically take the proportions of DBFC straight from their anime adaption looks.That's all for now, I leave the rest up to you Happy Spriting!Tip: Kirito is a nice base for young shounen archetype MC heroes, with Akira being a great base for Bulky type characters like Ryu, Goku, Etc.
