Today's daily, was really hard keeping this down to 16 colours, had to do some shenanigans with using the lightest blue of the jacket as the shadow for the pants.
Speaking of pants I still suck at baggy clothing.

Realised I missed a spare colour so I could keep the bracers and greaves brown

Also another note, it's really hard to define muscle shapes while also defining scars all over said arm with a limited palette

I can feel that I'm slowly improving though, largely by how much longer these are taking me to do now

I think the skin went better, though I did use two extra colours on it

Really not happy with his right leg angle though

I think the angle of the leg can still be used. It's the foot that can be adjusted. I'm not the greatest spriter here, but I have learned that the foot can be broken down to wedge shapes for poses like that.


Here's how I would handle the foot, personally. There's some other stuff that could be improved on as well. The overall muscle anatomy is wonky. The shading of the bicep on our left makes it look longer than it's supposed to be. The torso feels flabby due to the linework and its width. Overall, it's great to see you're trying and and open to feedback. Keep up the good work!

EDIT: Also, I can give an example for clothing folds if you want.

I mean yeah, sure, more clothing examples is always nice, clothing is really hard

And of course! Without feedback any practice I do is directionless.

Fairly happy with how it turned out, eyes were kinda tricky this time, so was the chain on the leg. Could probably still improve that chain tbf

this is really nice, it needs more AA tho. Keep up the good work

Thanks, I hope the amount of effort I've been putting in is starting to show ^-^
And as for the AA, I think I needed to plan my palette out better, I didn't leave enough colours to think of what to do for internal AA

Folds went slightly better on this one, I think
Also tried to save an extra red for a midtone/antialias colour as there's so much red on this design.

Forgot yesterday's daily so did 2 today
Li-Long (left) and Seong Mi-Na (Right)

Honestly I hate how the Seong Mi-Na has turned out, I think the top part is really messy, but then again I was using her as practice for changing the clothes of my reference image. Didn't go well.

Li Long I think went better.

Wasn't quite sure how to scale this one due to the pose, but here's today's daily
Considering the complexity of the outfit I'm kinda pleased, but God knows I'm glad I ain't animating it

I've been watching this thread for a while, really nice to see how you're improving and evolving. Keep it up, it's inspiring.

Not perfectly smooth I know but it's literally my first ever attempt at animation so bear with me.
