Got tired of your old name? I'm still probably gonna end up calling you Black Hatter, just like I keep calling Orochi Gill by his original name that I knew him by years ago. ^^;

Hmm...that's a pretty firm grasp too. Even with the stylized mouths too. I honestly don't think you need TOO much in the way of that either, but in any event, will still hand you a video like always!



I remember there being a very basic way of doing them in shape form. I forget where I learned it though, but it's like the top part of the lip can be separated into two half circles/circle, and the bottom...I forget. Ugh...been too long! But yeah, overall I think you did a fine job with the lips. As with the eyes, use the video to study up more on the lips and practice as always.

So with eyes and mouths out of the way, I suppose the next one is one of the following:

*Nose
*Eyebrows
*Ears

Those are next 3 you can try in any order. Same dealio, try to go with male/female, and go with your own set. Once you've done these, then I may have you try the head again but with a bit more detail to see how well you get everything in place and how detailed you can do things.

Alrighty then, I'll be keen on doing that. In the mean time, I should practice the head technique (and make some JoJo heads while I'm at it!! :D :D :D)

And yeah, I got tired of it, honestly Hatter is alright, but hey whatever floats your boat. ^_^

If you look at my personal text, you'll see my opinion on my old user name. :S

Post by: Xenomic on August 29, 2015, 03:09:47 AM
Dunno how it was a mistake honestly? o.o??

Yeah, practice the head technique for sure. You can also practice doing the other stuff (eyes, ears, mouths, noses, eyebrows, etc.) while doing that.

Oh yes, and for the last question from the previous thread that I asked: What is the easiest way to imagine the human body in order to draw it out?

Now THAT is a superb idea. :3

Oh yes, and for the last question from the previous thread that I asked: What is the easiest way to imagine the human body in order to draw it out?

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. A stick figure or mannequin is the easiest way to imagine the human body (or animal body) in order to draw it out. :D
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 29, 2015, 03:16:59 AM
Hmm...the easiest way to imagine a human body for drawing is in the forms of basic shapes. Circles, triangles, squares, etc. For instance, the head you can draw as a basic circle, as you already know. The body you can technically draw as a triangle, with the hands being circles themselves. It's a bit complicated, but it can easily work out if you know how to handle it. For instance, from the top of the head to the end of the shoulders is roughly a triangle in itself.

If I knew where that video was that talked about it, I would give it to you too. It's rather interesting to find out, and I honestly can't remember for the life of me who did it. I don't think Proko did...>_<

Of course, I'm not saying that you are wrong, there is no wrong answer per say as everyone has their own methods of doing these things.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 31, 2015, 12:37:37 AM
@Xenomic: Ah OK, I see what you mean. I just love the mannequin and stick figure more than separate shapes, but I can see what you mean.

Any thoughts before I start the heads again?

I'll also probably try to update my CPS3 sprites (especially Toph and Johnny Cage) and make a new one, cuz' I really wanna do some pixel art soon.

Huh. Wasn't expecting animal ears in that mix. Good job on adding those in! Overall, everything looks good. I honestly don't see anything wrong with any of those. I'll still give videos, of course!

If you want, I can throw suggestions at you for a CPS3 sprite? : 3

Thanks for the video man, honestly these art exercises are great; not only do I practice, but I end up making my own art references for future uses!
I added the animal ears in because human ears and JoJo styled ears (which is essentially human ears, but stylized) was going to be boring without something off-beat. Same goes for the elven ears.

For the love of Almighty God, yes pleeeeeeaaaaase. :3 :3 :3

Post by: Xenomic on August 31, 2015, 12:55:29 AM
It's always good to try out different things like that, especially when practicing and experimenting. Might want to try that with eyes and mouths later too! ^^


Hmmm....hmmmmm....alright, here's some suggestions for ya! Note, that they're all gonna be female of course!


Celsius (Tales of Eternia/Tales of the World)
Lana (Hyrule Warriors)
Suika Ibuki (Touhou)
Elf (Dragon's Crown)
Leafa (Sword Art Online)
Palutena
Prishe (C'mon, you KNOW you saw this one coming : 3 )


Those are the ones I'm going to suggest. If none of those perk your interest, then I have OTHERS I can probably toss at you. I have a million things for you to try dohohoho!
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 31, 2015, 12:58:36 AM
Will go for Prishe, Palutena, and Lana since I've seen them before. :D :D

Super sentaiTokukatsu, eh? Sure thing, I'll add those to the CPS3 sprites I'll be doing. Do you have any specific poses you want, or can I get creative with them? Either way, I'll be researching the shit out of them.

Late reply (cause phone was being a dick), but for both, be creative with them. Just make sure to keep Ixa's helmet closed (since he looks better that way).

@Xenomic: Here's the CPS3 Prishe:

(https://41.media.tumblr.com/153042f4a01582928a9d8c8ce9faa10f/tumblr_ntyrwxekpT1ut4tduo1_100.png)

I tried my best with her details, some of them were simplified to the extreme, she's so detailed though. @_@
I intend on doing a few fixes to Prishe tomorrow, so don't worry if anything on the sprite looks imperfect.

And  The Kamen Rider Kabuto practice:

(https://41.media.tumblr.com/e9fcb63fabecf0ff51c178d7abb0b85f/tumblr_ntyrvlLhbu1ut4tduo1_540.png)


So next up is CPS3 Palutena and Kamen Rider Ixa.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 31, 2015, 10:37:14 PM
Yeah, was bout to say, there's some oddities here and there (is that based off of one of Urien's sprites?? I almost feel like it is except not as tall as him heh). Since you already know what be wrong, I'll wait until you do the touch-ups to see what all else may need touched-up on. It's a pretty good start though! Odd choice of a pose if I do say so myself heh!

EDIT - I will say though, one of the things that looks off is that she looks so...manly lol. The face in particular really does, but that might be CPS3 style?? I don't know how much they differentiate between males and females there. Arms are pretty beefy too. That is all I shall say until it's touched-up more. ^^

And yup, that's partly why I had her to the list. There were some really detailed ones, and not so detailed ones. Seems you took all of the detailed ones heh : v
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 31, 2015, 10:46:43 PM
The face was lifted from Elena, since it was the closest I could get to manly but girly, and I added the smile in there. As for the pose, I drew it based off of this:

(http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20121029223922/finalfantasy/fr/images/4/48/Prishe_alt_EX.png)

Just added in her costume and what not.

I see what you mean about the arms, though. I'll try thinning her down. Thanks for the feedback! ^_^
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 31, 2015, 10:54:23 PM
Ah, the pose she uses for...for...Shoulder Tackle I believe it is? Actually, looking at it overall it looks like she's wider than she needs to be too, or is that CPS3 style too kicking in? o.o?

Hmmmm...I dunno. She doesn't look too manly now that I'm looking at the image itself (had to go to the wiki to look at it since the image provided is so small for some reason here. Referring to the image btw, not the sprite).

Well, in any case I'll wait and see how it looks after you touch up on it. Who knows? Maybe I'll try my own hands at Prishe too, just to see how it'd turn out~ Unlikely, but ya never know!
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on September 01, 2015, 05:46:54 PM
@Xenomic: I decided to scrap the entire SF3 Prishe sprite, and reworked it into a JJBA styled sprite:

(http://orig06.deviantart.net/a84e/f/2015/244/7/c/_jjba__prishe___final_fantasy_xv_by_black_hatter_95-d97zs0v.png)

In comparison this actually looks better, but there's something I should let you know. The face drastically changed because, thinking about it, it's a conversion from the art style of Tetsuya Nomura (KH, Dissidia, TWEWY) to the art style of Hirohiko Araki (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Baoh), so it was bound to happen anyways. But I tried to at least keep it close to Prishe, but that's up to you.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on September 01, 2015, 07:00:36 PM
Aye, I'd expect something like that to change drastically heh. Man, I know absolutely nothing about JJBA styled sprites now that I think about it. They long and thin like that huh?

The only things that I'll mention are that right hand (artist's right) which I don't know if the pose is right for, and the fact that she looks very cyclopic but again that might be the pose and the style in general heh. Otherwise that's not bad at all as far as I can tell!

Actually, yeah kinda. There are examples of muscular characters as well, but in the end, JJBA has the most fucked up proportions, right after SF3 Here are a few example sprites from "Heritage For The Future":
Spoiler: Fuck ton of JoJo (click to see content)

Keep in mind that for Prishe, the changes would be drastic because it's literally a conversion from one art style to another (Nomura to Araki). As for the face, the examples above kinda look like that, save for some poses. I did try to keep it to Prishe, but like I said, you're the final contender.

What would you recommend for the hand? I'll jot it down on my list so I can post it with an updated Toph, and hopefully Palutena!
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on September 01, 2015, 07:28:02 PM
Oh god Kakyoin and Mariah, I didn't realize you were so thin. I mean, I know you're a skinny pretty boy in the anime Kakyoin but jesus! Eat some hamburgers bro! Funny thing is, it's only some of them. The others like Avdol and Joseph seem fine, heck even Dio and Jotaro seems fine to me! Just Kakyoin, Mariah, Pol, and Vanilla. Such a strange style o_O

And yeah, I know the changes are drastic as mentioned already lol. That's to be expected from one style to the other!

As for the faces, I can't think of too many females atm outside of Mariah, Midler (whom we didn't really see in the show), and...was Lisa Lisa even in that game?? I don't remember.

As for the hand, maybe it needs to be hidden a bit more behind the body to give off that air of her resting it on her hip, if you know what I mean?

Hmm...I wonder if Mariah wouldn't be a good use for the legs for Prishe. Though looking at her official art, she does have rather thin legs so maybe that's ok!
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on September 01, 2015, 07:36:21 PM
I actually used Mariah as a ref for Prishe's legs, but mostly in how to shade it. I think Prishe's legs are okay like this seeing that she's as thin as fuck. @_@  Midler wouldn't have been a good reference since her face is hidden, so I used Dio ;D

And about the proprotions, yep you're right there. But seeing that Prishe isn't human and is not muscular enough, I guess going thin was the good route. And unfortunately, Lisa Lisa isn't in this game (but Young Joseph is) :D

I see what you mean about the arm, will fix that tomorrow and post it with Toph and Palutena. ^_^ As usual, thanks for the feedback. :D
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on September 01, 2015, 08:01:37 PM
Yeah, that's why I said she didn't need them seeing how thin she is anyways lol. Girly tomboyish girl Prishe is, but still adorable~ : 3

Hm...I guess there's no good way to make her seem girly girly like the other ladies then in the face if those two are the only ones heh! Could've sworn Midler's face wasn't hidden though, huh. Maybe I'm remembering wrong then. Darnit MUGEN, you're failing me!

Going thin is right seeing as you already stated that she is a thin elf lady! Though now that I think about it, would she be that short? I know she doesn't have a height listed and all but she seems pretty short. Maybe she was in Dissidia and I never realized? I'll have to put her up against Terra or Tifa to find that out whenever I LP the game heh. Though all the men are like hulking giants anyways so lol

And man, I didn't even NOTICE that with their feet! O_o

That's all the feedback to give on that! At least you know what I'm talking about with the hand, I'm bad at describing things. ^^;
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.

@Zemilia: Here's the Ixa study:

(http://pre14.deviantart.net/3e9d/th/pre/f/2015/246/a/0/_art_study__kamen_rider_ixa_by_black_hatter_95-d989jm4.png)

Sorry for the quality, my phone sucks. Also I went into lazy mode with this one, so IDK.

@Xenomic: I'm going to hold-off on doing Palutena, since I'm finding it increasingly hard to small sprites without a tablet (my Galaxy Tab doesn't really fit the role of a drawing tablet :()

In the meantime I tried to update Toph (face only, I really didn't know what to do with her hands and feet >_<) and applied your feedback to Prishe:

(http://orig15.deviantart.net/4b8a/f/2015/246/3/6/_jjba__toph_beifong___avatar_by_black_hatter_95-d8eqs7o.png)

(http://orig10.deviantart.net/ba9d/f/2015/246/8/7/_jjba__prishe___final_fantasy_xv_by_black_hatter_95-d97zs0v.png)

I'm going to hold off on doing more sprites, and try to venture into the artistic side of pixel art, and in addition to that, train myself in my weakest points of pixel art (hands, faces, feet, animation). So expect more sketches/speedpaints for the while or so.

Post by: Xenomic on September 04, 2015, 01:38:14 AM
There we go, that's better with the hand. Now it looks like it's resting on her hip like it should be. Looking at the sprite (ignoring the face, I don't know what else to do for that heh), the only thing I'm not sure about now is the OTHER hand. I'm assuming it's clenched, right??? Or is it open or...??

Clenched. Tried to make it open, but it looked so bad I made it clenched. Now that I look at it, I think the only problem is what appears to be the thumb, it looks... bigger. Yeah I'll get to fixing that later on. ;D
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on September 04, 2015, 01:43:11 AM
I was gonna suggest also looking at the others like Pol or Joseph for clenched fists too, but I have to remember that Prishe is tiny girl and they're hulking giants lol.

Ah yes, those green colors were stolen from Muhammad Avdol. I should change them though, but that time for changing will come later (as stated a few posts earlier by me) For now, I want to practice the artistic side of pixel art and train myself in my weaker points (hands/feet, heads/faces). ^_^

I'll be doing stuff quite akin to these:

(http://orig04.deviantart.net/bfcb/f/2015/249/f/c/_digital_sketch__toro_inoue_by_black_hatter_95-d98nh2s.jpg)

Toro Inoue, Sony's fighting neko mascot in Japan. While it's not something super, for my first digital sketch done entirely by tablet (although I previously did a sketch on paper. Just helper lines and shapes and such), colored on Infinite Painter, it's not that bad, no?

Oh and I forgot about this:

What do you guys think?

That's not a bad start if anything. Looks like you're doing decently well digitally so far! Probably should keep up with the simple stuff for now while training with digital art. As for Gen there, that's a pretty nice looking Gen. I can't speak on the shading or colors myself because I don't know CVS Shading/coloring, but it looks fine to me!

For Gen, I referenced Yun and Chun-Li for shading stuff and what-not, I feel I got it down coloring wise.

Simple is good, Toro looks nice.

Thanks. :) I plan to do simple stuff for a while regarding digital sketching/painting. Most of it is gonna be oriented towards character design and concept art.

Oh and here's a new one I made today:

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.

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 :P) 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.

A new desperate ploy to revive my art vault:

KoF 2K2-inspired Athena Asamiya in CvS style.

I was gonna say it looks off from her 2k2 appearance, but I saw this over in the CVS thread and now I understand. It's not bad, I'll give you that. Would be interesting to see you try all of the different Athenas in CvS style. Be a good practice exercise in doing different designs over the same sprite heh~ : 3

It probably would. I'll look into that.

And yeah, if it was 100% 2K2 Athena, I would have just converted her from her SNK sprites, but when it comes to the CvS SNK side characters, I edit them from those CvS incarnations, like my Kyo sprites or this Garou Terry for example:

(http://orig07.deviantart.net/180e/f/2015/128/1/b/_garou__motw__cvs_terry_bogard___idle__animated__by_black_hatter_95-d8sdjtj.gif)

Don't ask about that weird grey looking thing on his arm, I'll remove that one day. :P

So as you can see, I feel that for the existing SNK characters featured in CvS (well, most of them), it feels better to edit them from their CvS incarnations.

athena either has big things or little calfs :P


Will look into that.

So I noticed that I have a lot of time before my only class starts today, so I'll leave these here:

[REMOVED]

Inked line arts of my OCs, Ioan Trafalgar and Mikayel Aslanian, that I scanned in at 300 DPI. When I paint these in, I'll make sure to have solved all line art problems by then, and I'll post concept sprites for them.

Tonight, I'll do a fix to Athena and Terry, so expect that.

Jackets should have wider cuffs, almost the size of the fist. They're not meant to be drawn like tight shirts all the way to the forearms :P

Will fix that.

As for Kyo, I don't see what you mean, since I'm pretty sure most, if not any of the cuffs are wrapped around the hands, and I kinda like the way I handled them, so they stay (unless you mean the older frames, then those are being fixed. By fixed, I mean restarting them or if not completely a fail, then touching up).

Nothing is always perfect, but I'm not about to go back and re-do 500 frames worth of work TBH at this point. Hope I don't sound condescending, it's only my view of it (you already know how much I revere you at this point :P)

Who's the symbiote-infected guy with Sonic/Raditz's hair?

Some idea I had for villain in a what-if Marvel Anime: Spiderman. Basically, he'd be some Yakuza who's experimented on with a serum that combines the Venom Symbiote and the Lizard Serum to create this demonic hell-spawn. Then Japan would be in the same state as Web of Shadows, blahblahblah, final fight takes place in a temple in Okinawa, dies fighting Spidey, he'd probably be consumed by it and he'd die in the way Topher Grace Venom died in Spider Man 3, more or less, but something like that.

And the Sonic/Raditz hair was actually ripped off from a drawing of a Japanese dragon I found on Google (well, it's actually a tattoo concept, but I think it counts):

DAY 01 digital sketch for the Drawtober 2015 event for the autodesk-sketchbook dA group.

The prompt was "Medieval Robot and its Operator"

Not my best, but what I love about this one is that I did it completely on tablet, no mouse or paper drawn sketch was used (I got lazy at the fat king though), but that's probably it, just a very messy speed sketch or some shit.

Still waiting for it to be approved by the group itself though. It was added to the group! ^_^

So I finished it yesterday, an I know that my lines are crappy, but I learned a new lesson from this experience:

Never ink your drawings if you are following this tutorial (http://black-hatter-95.deviantart.com/art/Sketch-to-Inks-Tutorial-Photoshop-396245115)

But I'll admit, Mikiko Ponczeck is a godsend, and apparently so is MotorRoach, for telling me about "Gust of Wind" :XD:

Spoiler: And here's my first ever YouTube video documenting this! (click to see content)

I promise the next painting that involves line art will be more superb than this, I promise. For this week, I'll be doing experiments with coloring and filters.

Oh, and the next video will be a spriting process. Just to switch up.

You are right, I never noticed that. Tomorrow, I'm going to take a look at Yun, Yang or Fei Long to get an idea of how the muscles should work, since for that arm I was going for that pose, but I'll also change the left arm to match it in pose. Thanks! :D

Tried to the best of my ability to do it right, this is what I got, and I'm happy with it. Reason why it's undetailed is because I plan to continue the line art inside the thick line art with colored thinner lines (I realized I used thick lines for the arms and abs, gonna erase those when the painting process starts).

Alrighty, so I'm posting here to say this.

Lately, I've been having some trouble motivating myself to do artwork/pixel art, so I need a push. And what better way to get that push then from you guys?

So, I'll give you guys freebies! And it can be a single sprite in any style (save HiRes/anything SNK related) or some artwork (digital painting/ink sketch/colored pencil sketch).

I may take a while to do these because RL, but rest assured, this is something I will do my utmost to complete. No more saying I'll do something and backing down. Shit just got serious.

So you guys have 2 spots for pixel art (I promised Xenomic a good JJBA sprite) and 3 for misc. artwork, get'em while you can! First come, first served!

@Xenomic: Tell me again, what sprite did you want me to make in JJBA style? Was it Palutena or something Touhou-related?

SPRITES LIST:

1. Palutena (for Xenomic, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure style)
2. Ioan Trafalgar (requested by Sin-, something I should've done long ago for myself, Requiem style)
3. Rudolf von Stroheim (requested by City_Hunter, Capcom vs. SNK style)

ARTWORK LIST:

1. Cecilia Halee (requested by First Lt. Ding, colored pencil drawing)
2. Lady vs. Monster Horde (requested by Gennos, inked sketch)
3. Berserker (requested by Zemilia, colored pencil drawing)

Alright, edited the previous post. About the artwork for your OCs and one of mine, I backed down from it because I only just figured out a concrete and final look for my OC. That work may happen down the line, just not now. But it's still something I'm thinking about.

Just to be fair though, you do have a reserved spot on the pixel art stuff, so unfortunately you can't reserve a spot on the artwork. However, PM what you have in mind. I might draw it as practice.

Here's his sword, in case you want to know what it looks like. (http://safebooru.donmai.us/posts/1906081?tags=berserker_%28fate%2Fzero%29)

Added to the previous post.

can you draw me lady from DMC3 killing monsters with her bazooka?

I'm going to assume you mean inked sketch, so added. If not, tell me the artwork type.

scrooge mcduck cosplaying as dumbledore with donald duck cosplaying as harry potter and daffy duck as ron weasley? :)

The artwork spots are all finished, but I'll keep that in mind for a digital painting on my tablet. :D

As of this post, all freebies have been taken. I will do my utmost to get around to them, starting today, so I will begin by cordially and humbly thanking you for considering me for your art freebie and your valuable time and patience. It'll basically be sprite-artwork pattern, starting with Xenomic.

Sorry for this late reply, I was asleep when this all happened. If this caused any inconveniences, I cordially apologize.

Why are the outlines like that? The darkest colour (black) should go outside, look at the reference. It's very noticeable in her clothing.

That's what they make you think. :P

I guess cross-mixing Midler/Mariah was a bad idea. I'll just try to use Mariah as a face reference.

EDIT: I noticed the chin is also a factor. I'll fix that.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Gennos on November 06, 2015, 03:32:59 PM
theres nothing wrong with using midler or mariah as a base, so don't throw the baby out with the bathwater.
by masculine face i assume that alex means a thick jaw, one that mostly men has. look at that picture of yours and try comparing both midler's face with that other girl's, you'll notice that midler's is smaller and has a curved feminine jaw while that other girl has a big nose and a thick jaw.
just redraw that other girl's face and your problems are gone.

Nah, between the previous one, and this, it's actually more feminine if you look at my previous post. Will see if I can pixellate the effects, and maybe edit the dress a bit. Screw it, just the dress.

Post by: Xenomic on November 07, 2015, 10:26:10 PM
That is some spiffy looking SFX, lemme tell ya. Feminine faces in JoJo style are quite the thing to try, I know that much lol. It does look better than before at least (and better than Prishe's!), and I can't really imagine making it more feminine because of the way the style is. The only other thing I can say that MAY need adjusted is the way the dress at the top flows, mostly because it flows in a reverse U shape (if you know what I mean) and isn't like a shirt as you have it. I don't...THINK her arms need trimmed down at all, dunno if those are too muscular or not because of JoJo's style, but everything else seems perfectly fine to me! A really good job overall! Glad you were able to tackle a rather complex design in another sprite style. ^^

I'm glad you liked it! I do agree with you in the top dress (I can't believe I missed that). About the arms, that's actually as best I can get them, before I added her golden ornaments, the arms were actually quite skinny, but any more and she'd look anorexic.

Yeah, I wanted to say that as well, the style kinda hampered me from going about the face the way I envisioned it. And sorry for the size next time I post any pixellated character, I'll make sure to add a %200 percent sized version next to the original for those who want to critique.

Thanks all, I'll try to do something about the dress on Sunday. In the meantime, I'll scratch Xenomic's request off the list and go to Ding's.

Cecilia Halee for First Lt. Ding, drawn completely with colored pencils.

I'll admit to you, I tried going for a cross-hatch shading style with the colors, but that did not work out except in certain intervals. Drawing with only colored pencils is tough, but I'll let you be the judge and jury.

I actually had to play with the brightness and contrast just to get the colors to look like how they were before scanning.

With that, I'll move onto Ioan Trafalgar, the OC who I should have redesigned/resprited ages ago.

Maybe adjust the head a little (the jaws)* and the outlines on his arms.

Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on November 25, 2015, 12:51:29 AM
By adjusting the outlines on his arms, you mean make them more apparent on the light/shaded parts?

I can definitely handle the jaws, I now see where the problem lies. :)

*it might be because of your style, I don't know


The only thing about the style that would be unique are the faces (which I want them to be anime inspired, particularly drawing inspiration from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure and Gangsta). Anything else being exaggerated/different from what it is in reality depends on the character. For instance, Ioan's big feet were a reference to a joke that particularly follows me throughout life (size 42s rock). But the jaw is a fuck up, particularly on the left portion. So I'll handle that soon.

his belly is too thin and his mouth is following his nose on the same level, which makes him look like a dog or something. draw the face without the nose first and make it consistent then add the nose later, like that second OC, his face looks alright. hope i helped.
also don't want to sound intruding but when will you draw lady?

Noted.

About Lady, you can hold me accountable for not getting around to her and Berserker (for Zemilia), I just have to finish work on end-of-semester things (to which I'm almost there), this week was kind of like a crackdown on everything, they were pretty much dumping homework on me, and other shit. But I'll endeavor myself to draw at least a working idea of Lady and Bersker tonight.

Post by: Graphicus on November 26, 2015, 11:26:31 PM
I have some feedback that may help, but it all depends on whether the artistic choices you've made are intentional or not, so take it with a grain of salt:

I noticed that the character's ear/face extends all the way to the back of his head when, at that angle, it should end at around 5/6ths of the way from right to left. Here's a quick MSPaint edit (I'm not at home, so I don't have anything fancier) of your sketch to give you a rough idea of what I'm saying:

(http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k589/ImMOOREtal/Helping/explanation_zpszr9d33hv.png)

Post by: hatter on November 26, 2015, 11:32:59 PM
@Graphicus: How's this look (ignore the ear, I'll fix it in the end. There's also the smile, it'll be fixed as well):

(http://i.imgur.com/rcIC7dM.png)
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Graphicus on November 27, 2015, 12:52:48 AM
It's better, but I can't really give you an opinion until the ear has been put in place with the hair (sideburns) and everything. For example, if you had said this was the final version, I'd have done this:

(http://i1117.photobucket.com/albums/k589/ImMOOREtal/Helping/explanation2_zpseguf5fot.png)

You can see I added shadow right where the arrow's pointing at. That part's going to end up getting covered anyway when you complete it though, so there's not much of a point in doing it.

Regarding the rest of the face, it's fine. I mean, huge mouths and eyes are not really my cup of tea, but that's really just a matter of personal preference and most likely an intentional stylistic choice on your part. You did adjust it correctly, if that's what you're wondering.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on November 27, 2015, 01:03:41 AM
Yeah, the face was meant to be anime-ish , so that's why a lot of stuff looks exaggerated. At least I adjusted it right. (his huge mouth is jut really an exaggerated version of the Joker smile, since I want my sort-of Shotoclone to be psychotic)

I'll have to adjust the hair in order to cover that (I even jut realized I made a boo-boo with the hair as well), but now I see what you mean with the jaw thing. Thanks again Graphicus! :)

So I'm posting here to say that I've started working on Lady, I decided to put Berserker as the last traditional art request because I believe his design will take me a bit of a while to nail. I've so far finished Lady's upper body. Tomorrow I'll finish off Ioan once and for all.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.

I see what you mean about the mouth and eyes. I think I'll give the eyes a small resize, since I meant for them to be big and anime exaggerated. Mouth can be easily handled. Thank you very much for taking the time to point out my mistakes (same goes to Sin and Graphicus).

thanks for doing lady too :)

Anytime, thank you for coming to me for an art request. I'll be working on both tonight.

(http://orig11.deviantart.net/d785/f/2015/332/e/0/_oc__ioan_trafalgar_by_zaitsu_hatter-d9ie7d6.png)

Sin-: Well, what do you think? Anything you want to add, before I scratch him off the list?

In addition, I started working on Lady, and currently, here's what came out of it (my phone camera sucks, but... you should still be able to see it):

(https://41.media.tumblr.com/9d91c89252db557bc65472e4d7c7204e/tumblr_nyk6hrVNf31ut4tduo2_r2_1280.jpg)

I still plan on putting other stuff in this, such as Blood Goyles, Pride Hells, Arachnes, and the setting? Bloody Palace from DmC4, it seems fitting to me.

I also-errrr- exaggerated a few things, most evident being the Kalina Ann bazooka, and *cough*boobs*cough*, hope those exaggerations can be forgiven.

EDIT: As of my newest post, consider the Lady sketch above to be obsolete, in anticipation for a newer and more viewable photo (hopefully a scan).

Woops I forgot about the ear. I'll make sure to edit that soon, and the eye as well.

As for the style,  it was meant to be awkward.  So I guess you'll have to deal with it?

Thanks for reminding me of the ear, I'll fix it soon.

I also realized that the sketch I made for Lady has leg issues, specifically the left viewer leg. I'll tackle that very soon (thank God I didn't go too hard on the lines).

Yeah, faces aren't my strong suite, haha; at least the cybernetic part of his face kind of worked out. :D

But then again, I'm not too fond of the pants/boots/chest pockets, but at this point, I don't want to go back to it because they were a fucking nightmare to do.

Glad you liked it though. ;)

@Zemilia: I'm not particularly happy with this one, and I'm going to revisit this in the future, but for now, this is what my knowledge of the colored pencil medium brought me to. :(

But I pretty much joined a colored pencil art group on dA so expect a lot of colored pencil practices here (same deal for digital art).

@Xenomic: Now be honest, and don't hold back anything. How is this so far?
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on December 25, 2015, 02:52:44 AM
That's honestly not bad. I'm not gonna go too deep into it since I'm not expecting you to do super realistic barks or anything like that. If you want to give it a bit more of a realistic look to the bark, however, you may want to make the lines not be super smooth and be a bit more jagged and rough, as trees are want to be. The shading underneath the canopy could be touched up on more, as I think it'd be a bit darker up there since no sunlight can reach that unless the sun was rising in that direction or something. The coloring on the canopy is fine enough as again, I don't expect you to do super fine details on that. Though I feel it could use a bit more darker colors around the inners and probably be spread out a bit more with the shading in there, depending on where the lightsource may be hitting. It does it to a degree but could be done a bit more.

Hopefully that helps a bit? ^^;

And now I'm reminded of a chia pet. C-C-CHIA DEKU TREE!
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on December 25, 2015, 03:24:29 AM
Hmmm, as for darker colors, I think Photoshop touching up can do just that. As a matter of fact, the colors I started off with were far lighter than this, but yeah those parts can be touched up and darkened/deepened with the burn tool (I just figured out how to use it wisely, and it is GRRRREAT), so I won't worry about that just yet.

Honestly concerning realistic details, I tried my best to get as close to realistic detailing as possible, and this is what came out. Honestly, I'd say I'm at semi-realistic which is sort of my goal (I drew this all on my tablet mind you, good exercise but HOLY SHIT).

So yeah, I think I can fix all of that on my lappy when I get the general gist of this down. Thanks for your honesty. P.S You helped a lot :)

Oh and, also did this:

Post by: Xenomic on December 25, 2015, 03:31:37 AM
Well, if semi-realism is what you're aiming for, then yeah, that's not bad for that kind of style. You could still test out the jagged lines and whatnot to see how it may look, but otherwise, all up to you!

Sometimes I think Arkady tries to breathe a bit TOO much life into his characters and that's the result of it. Yours is more...calm and patient? Is that what I'm looking for here? Perhaps...but it does flow a lot better and isn't as erratic.

Post by: hatter on December 25, 2015, 03:34:22 AM
Don't get me wrong, I actually will, but I think through Photoshop on my laptop would be easier (it's easier for me to do stuff like that by mouse tbh), so you'll see them jagged lines soon enough. :)

Yeah, that was waaay to bouncy, I'd expect a marksman like Hawkeye to be composed, and the other thing is that nobody can breathe like that, unless he/she is Impossible Man/Woman, so yeah I guess it's more human that way.

Post by: hatter on December 26, 2015, 12:01:38 AM
@Xenomic: I didn't do the jagged lines, because when I tried to do them, they didn't look good, so I opted them out. Thanks for bringing it to my attention though, now I know what to look out for with trees and shit. Very happy, as I only used Photoshop CS5 on my laptop to touch up on things and fix a few fuck-ups; the rest was purely made on tablet with no paper involved, just one reference and Mediband on my Galaxy Tab S4:

StevenB's ink sketches are very inspirational, I plan on doing more hopefully, they are just so damn fun to do (I made a few fuck ups on anatomy, don't hold me to them, me and anatomy aren't the bestest of friends).

Also as a heads up, the Hawkeye sprite was made by NicotineFist, not Arkady. He told me on dA that he made the Hawkeye anims a loooong time ago, and just didn't revisit them. I edited my previous post to fit this. You should see his dA account, it's marvelous! :)

The Deku Tree has a doorknob on his mouth? : v (Ok, maybe it's a fairy, I don't know but looks like a doorknob lol).

Interesting that you added all the trees around him (since originally he was kinda the only tree in the area. Maybe he got hit by a Mini spell : v). At least you paid attention to the shading while putting the trees there (that and it looks like it's nighttime too), so well done on that bit.  ^^
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on December 26, 2015, 01:57:19 AM
Yeah I know he looks smaller than the other trees, but once I realized that there was nothing I could do about it, and I didn't really want to go back to redoing it, the first time around was like walking into an inferno, it wasn't pretty.

I though the Deku Tree's door had a door knob? Or maybe I forgot that the tree was mystical and opted for something common sensical. Lel.

Thanks though. :)

Original sprite was by Fast Flash, this is my fix. There may be some mistakes, but considering this isn't my sprite, I didn't go all out to perfect it. I just ironed out the apparent mistakes. Feel free to point out mine though, I'd love to have my eyes cleaned from dust.

It doesn't really look Z2 styled.
Like Genesis / Demitri pointed out, those pointy knees make no sense.
The outlines should be thicker, the folds are too sharp, his legs have become longer for some reason, the two hands seem different in style (the viewer's left one is too big and you can read the fingers; the right one is too small and you can't discern between the pinkie and the ring finger).

Take a look at my edit (not finished, but I'm still working on it):

I still can't take photographs for shit, and no, don't expect me to get any better at photography at all.

Tried nailing the smaller details w/ a magnifying glass, like Yusuke Murata, and I must say, it works well. Will be doing that more often.

Post by: MotorRoach on January 03, 2016, 09:06:06 PM
I'd expect to see a bit of Saitama's arm, on the punch in there (you know, stretching towards the camera, along the fist), but right now, it looks like his hand is floating without connection to his body. His eye also looks way too big, and the proportion of his jaw looks distorted and uneven when comparing both sides of his face . The head itself might also be a little too big, and the pecks appear to be way too low as well. I'd recommend giving him a taller upper body and maybe taller legs to go along.

I do really enjoy this ink drawing style of yours. I'd love to see more of this, as it looks very appealing.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on January 03, 2016, 09:27:30 PM
Regarding the body, I believe its because of the camera angle I took the photo at (I suck at photography), as when I went to check my drawing again, it looked alright as far as the dispersion of proportions went. Also he wasn't meant to punch in this photo, it was more of how Ryu and Ken fist bump, but from a frontal angle. But I agree about the floating look it gives, probably should've added more of his arm. at least the shoulders..

As far as head goes, I think he always had a big egg head, but noted regarding facial features.

I'll be making more of these, I enjoyed using a magnifying glass for smaller details, I felt just like Murata! :P

Alrighty, just posting here to say that Seijuro Hiko is almost done, just sent a small preview to Dan Mt/Speedster for approval and insight.


As for Steven and Matthew, here's how it'll work; I'll begin by sending you a small preview (usually a screencap of Photoshop open on the preview at about %400 zoom) with line art, and get approval regarding things like anatomy and line art mistakes that may arise. I'll be doing this because: 1) good line art makes or breaks a sprite and 2)I'm trying to achieve a new form of quality that'll satisfy people. With you, my honorable guests as requesters of pixel art, you must get only the finest. If you aren't satisfied, I can't be satisfied. I'm also trying to delete my lazy streak, or at least keep it at bay, because Sin is honestly right.

After getting your feedback/approval, I'll apply any feedback given and go towards making things like shading and other small fixes I can do. You will get another PM to see if you are satisfied enough so that I can go to the Elite 4 challenge finalizing phase, as there could be something I missed, and that would need my immediate attention.

That way,  I ensure your complete satisfaction, and I churn out high quality art. :)


Also, I'm going to post to state that after I finish the CPS3 styled requests, there will be an entire overhaul of my past works. I will list exactly what will be overhauled:

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

So once I finish all CPS3 requests, I will not make anything new until everything stated above is overhauled. I want to see just how much I improved, and if I can really make something worth looking at.

Stay tuned, I guess. IDK what else to add at this point. Also my fingers hurt.

P.S Also for Matthew, did you see my PM by any chance?

Zo Warudo, Likiji, Speedster: Glad y'all love it, hope that Scrooge and Jimbo come out just as good.

Bastard Mami: Thanks, I used CPS3 Demitri by ink, Ibuki, Ryu, and Leo as references for various things like outfit (Ryu, Ibuki), boots (Demitri), katana (Leo's sword shading was useful), but this entire sprite was made from paper, and was carried out in secret with Speedster's feedback and advice. Completely made from scratch, which is one of the reasons why I'm fond of this (that and the character design is amazing).

walruslui: Many thanks for giving me that feedback, I tried to fix it just now, and updated the post with the sprites. Hopefully it's been done right this time. And yes I felt that I needed to expand my boundaries beyond Johnny Cage and Jago (though those weren't bad either). Hopefully the next sprites will be as good as this one. :)



So I'm gonna go ahead and say that I've put down a sketch for Scrooge that I will use (albeit in need of small fixes, regarding head proportions), so hopefully I'll do the line art and send Steven a sample image so I can get critiqued on it.

Quick question regarding some of my old sprites]Since I stated that I was going to revamp all of my old works after Jimbo, I wanted to ask what's a good pose for Z2 Broly? I don't want to use anything in the games he appeared in, I want to do something original. The same goes for Beerus, so any ideas are great as to what would work for an original pose that displays the character's prominence/power
I've had an idea for a unique beerus stance for a while now and it would what kinda looks like this

Made one more small edit to Scrooge. At this point, I think it's done.


Gonna post here and say that a preliminary sketch for Jimbo Wales has been made, and I'll be working on it soon, pixel wise. Let's see how ink's method will work out. :)

I'm kind of getting the vibe that he was horizontally stretched. It's most evident when you look at his arm muscles and his hand.

Post by: deddy95 on February 04, 2016, 09:38:56 AM
I think the biggest problem is his left leg (our right), it's a bit too long and doesn't fit the rest of the body. Also i'd rotate his right foot a bit to the left to match the direction where the knee is pointing and shorten his face. I did a quick edit just by moving stuff (http://i.imgur.com/3Jslnrt.png) Do you think any of this fixes might work?

One of the things I wanted to avoid was imitating Diepod's drawings or making something similar to it, but I might take a look at it as well. In the case of Hulk, I guess maybe Hulk himself and Abubo Rao from Rage of the Dragons could help as a reference. Thank you. :)

Also about the portion in red, what should I do regarding the foot? Edit the heel position, shorten the foot, widen it, scrap it and do it again? And also if possible to say for both feet that would be much appreciated, as feet are my Achilles heel (unintentional pun).

im really iffy about the color choices, its really bland and makes him look pale, CPS3 sprites usually have color pallettes that emphasize contrast and has vibrant, bright colors that make em pop, even twelve who is literally a white blob has really nice color usage
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on February 10, 2016, 02:39:22 PM
What colors do you think should be changed? Because I don't exactly have a PhD in CPS3 coloring (I do have one in Internet Retardation tho :P).

Remember, none of this is pretty much final, everything is being edited as I go along.

With a complementary Sullivan Bean palette! :D (I only call them Jimbo Rizer and Sullivan Bean, because they were supposed to be the descendants of Bill Rizer and Lance Bean, if I'm not wrong).

Any last feedback for Jimbo before I upload it to Tumblr??


So here's all the CPS3 sprites for the requesters for those who want to catch up:

From left to right: Seijuro Hiko (Rurouni Kenshin) - Uncle Scrooge (DuckTales) - Jimbo Rizer (Contra 3: Alien Wars)

After this, it's redoing all old art work. Yes sir, from pixel art to digital paintings, it's redoing time!! I'll be updating my first page with everything I make, so you don't have to go all over the thread to search for something. :)

EDIT: Forgot to mention, but thanks @deddy95: and @Graphicus: and @walruslui: and @MotorRoach: for the lovely help and feedback on Jimbo. You guys are awesome. :)

About Jimbo:
- the weapon seems to be on a different layer (some fingers shouldn't be seen)... well, it looks weird to me.
- The right arm's shading is kind of weird, refer to Alex (SFIII) for shading;
- the hands look small;
- you forgot to colour a pixel, look at his right hand. There should be the trousers colour.
- SFIII sprites usually have the "bright" area and the "darker" area, respectively on the left and on the right of the sprite, to show the depth. You only did that to the lower body.

Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on February 12, 2016, 08:08:29 PM
I see what you mean. I can fix those up. About the right (left viewer) arm, you're referring to the usage of the lightest shade, correct?

That was intentional, because I was trying to emulate the action movie shine look (you know, Arnie in Alien :P), but I guess I can work on that.

Post by: hatter on February 12, 2016, 09:52:48 PM
Alright, so I tried to modify Jimbo with the received feedback. After playig around with things, I only decided to apply the "bright"/"dark" contrast to the arms, kneepads and wrist pads, and left the shoes and chest out of it, because I got bad results from playing around with the dispersion of the shading.

How does it look now? Anything else I missed or should be addressed?

AVAKEN ME MAESTERS.


So pretty much I'm purging out my gallery again, by either redoing/making small fixes to sprites, or just plain deleting them.

So, have at you some old sprites:

Lucky Glauber - CvS:

(http://orig06.deviantart.net/736f/f/2016/057/5/b/_cvs__lucky_glauber_by_zaitsu_hatter-d9t24xg.png)

Bunny (request for Demitri/Genesis, unknown OC for some Japanese Pixiv artist) - KoF XIII:

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
(I'm not even gonna bother to go into this one again, KoF XIII is completely beyond me).


Sprites that got very small changes:

(http://orig13.deviantart.net/57b9/f/2016/056/7/3/_z2__android_17_by_zaitsu_hatter-d9ihqor.png)

(http://orig06.deviantart.net/645a/f/2016/056/8/5/_cvs__lou_and_siva_by_zaitsu_hatter-d92orb3.png)

I'd bring you the older versions, but I'm too lazy to be bothered with that. For A17, I made some small modifications to his jeans, by removing a ripped fabric effect I put on his right (viewer) leg, and I made the light and mid tone colors more apparent. Also fixed his point shoulder. :3

For Lou and Siva, I only fixed their eyes, which weren't looking forward. Nothing special here.

Also, have an incomplete Broly:

When I finish him, I'll post an image showing the changes to him, the last version I made was blood-seeping-through-the-eyes inducing, it was THAT bad.

EDIT: Made a modification on Lucky's left (viewer) bicep, with C+C courtesy of Sin.

it looks nice, but i fixed her up quite a bit

(http://i.imgur.com/kSvJwAi.png)

remember since you're working with cps2 shading and anatomy you can go ham with the exaggerated muscle proportions.

I looked at SFA Chun Li for reference.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on February 27, 2016, 04:12:57 AM
In the case of Tifa, I'm going to have to pass on that.

The proportions of the Square Enix characters will vary depending on the character, so for instance, Tifa won't be completely hammed on muscle proportion , somewhere between Chun-Li (whom I actually referenced for the curves of Tifa's legs) and Sakura, but e.g. Prince Doza from Ehrgeiz will be more like Adon/Sagat, and so forth.

But the fixes on the tank top are definitely needed, and I'll take that. Thanks for the help. :)

Post by: lui on February 27, 2016, 06:46:06 AM
i beefed her up because i figured since she's a fighter that focuses on brawling at close-range i would give her a build of an athelete similar to what capcom did to asuka in SFxT and R.Mika in SFV

Spoiler: Goin' through changes, parte trois (click to see content)

and here is the first of two submissions for Balthazar's Piccolo collab contest:

Spoiler: Current image is under construction (click to see content)

I've been watching some videos, and I even stumbled upon the channel of a legendary Disney artist by the name of Aaron Blaise (https://www.youtube.com/user/AaronBlaiseArt), give him a watch.

 After doing what's left of my Z2 stuff (Machinedramon, Black Luster Soldier, and a recreation of a dA user's DBZ OC, Leekara, in place of Beerus), I'll be taking a break from any pixel stuff that doesn't pertain to ongoing projects, so expect some hand-drawn stuff, and a revamp of all my shitty digital paintings.

Machinedramon o_o Wasn't expecting him to be done at all. I also forgot how ridiculous huge that guy is (and how terrifying he was in the first Digimon World game lol...has to be the red eyes he got in that game!). That's gonna be something when you finish that for sure. Also, that's a heck of a change in Broly. He must be taking the same stuff KOF XIII Ralf and Clark are taking, eh? : v
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on March 05, 2016, 11:17:55 PM
He was. Machinedramon was one of my fave DigiMon (alongside the GreyMon family, IkkakuMon, WereGaruruMon, OmniMon, and X-VMon), so I thought basically "Hey, Piccolo is my fave DBZ character, why not put them together".

I never played DigiMon World to the end (unfortunately), but from what I heard, he was terrifying as all hell to battle. Maybe I'll get back to it one day, IDK when.

And yeah, Broly did change a lot, it was a good idea to do a scratch drawing than a straight up Extreme Butoden conversion.

Holy shit thats probably one of the finest sprites youve done to date, damn. Ribs look a bit iffy but thats a minor nitpick

Thanks. That won't be the only fine one (will look into the abs at a later point), I have a lot more in store, pixel or not. :hat:

Off-topic, but I do have a LP of Digimon World, if you're interested in it. A full 100% LP of it at that so yeah! ^^ And same here, though I had quite a few favorites from the series overall, it's hard to list heh. ^^;

Yeah, sometimes it's better to do things from scratch than not. Broly's supposed to be a giant compared to everyone else AFAIK, and if he's going to be in Z2 style, he'd HAVE to be massive compared to everyone else for sure.

For Tifa, the tank top definitely looks much better. It doesn't seem as flat shaded or what-have-you as before, and you can tell the curves now as well. Definitely can't wait to see more of her~

So I'm redoing Remy. Made him shorter than Iori by a sinch, since Ryu is shorter than Iori, and Iori is taller than Ryu, standing up.

Also @Balthazar: thought I'd show you this:

As Walrusluis, I can not wait till the trousers are finished. Are you going to the 15 colour limit? I think shoes could use a bit of CS in the front zone. Also, his lower sleeve(near his hand) seems to lack some definition. Mind if I take a hand whn you're done with the sprite?

Great looking Remy, bruh.
I would add some reflections to his jacket, though,  to make it look more like leather.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on March 13, 2016, 03:30:58 PM
Thank you, I'll make sure to do all of that. I'm making a process GIF of this to show the references I used so I'll definitely incorporate your feedback into the final fixes frame.

@Felo_Llop: You are more than welcome to do that once I'm done. And yeah, I was going for the 16 color limit. And what exactly is meant by CS on the shoes in this context? I didn't really get it.

@sabockee: You are referring to the torso right? If so, then I will add that in the end (I'm doing the sleeves according to Iori, but maybe I can add a sinch more to the sleeves as well. ;))

There is this really cool mock-up I want to do with Remy and Iori, so I'll be making a pixel background from scratch specifically for it (albeit simplified), so once I do that and Clark (KoF XIV outfit), I'll make sure to show everything off. :hat:

Yes, leather looks differently than fabric in cvs sprites. Look at Benimaru's gloves to see what I'm talking about. Here's good example, as well.

Benimaru is a good enough example. I wanted to keep it in line with Iori, but a few light tones and mid tones on the torso won't do any harm. I'll make sure to look at Maxima as well. Thanks! :hat:

So uhh I had a change of heart, and decided to go about and completing and revamping Clark, Ralf, Athena, and Stroheim before making any mock ups; actually I think I'll post my revamps before posting any mock ups.

So have some Remy:

I got Remy's height:
(http://i1066.photobucket.com/albums/u402/GodofDeath94/RemyHeight.png)

and basically he's taller than Iori.

His height is fine. Almost nobody else has anything against the height. If anything it was right to make Remy taller as you can see through the "Goin thru changes" spoiler.

It makes perfect sense. To have Remy and Iori stare each other directly in the eyes, Remy had to be taller than Iori to achieve that effect.

I recall vividly that I spectacularly fucked up the proportions on Ralf from my first attempt when doing this. The fact is I really want Ralf and Clark to retain there KoF XIII proportions, but in a more human way when I make CvS renditions for them. So as far as body proportions go, anything I should look out for, change, or fix? I'd really appreciate it, because I don't want to make the same fuck up twice. :(

By the way, if you were wondering, the I on the belt wasn't there on Clark's KoF XIV design. I added that there because I always thought that the Ikari "I" should be like a belt buckle or something; kinda like how Batman has the bat insignia on his belt as well, if I'm not mistaken.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: lui on March 16, 2016, 05:51:36 PM
considering you're using KoF XIV's proportions there's not really much i would want to see change, except for maybe the hands, they look a wee bit too big, they look bigger than his head lol

I'd say to make him a bit shorter though, the Ikari duo isn't as tall as the impression they give.

Also, for those who may be interested:

Also, some extra stuff:

- Gonna finish MachinedraMon tomorrow, I've taken long enough. I just need to do his Giga Cannon, adjust some details, then make the animation (which won't be hard at all). I'm also drawing a DBZ OC of a deviantART user in the Z2 style as well, hope to show that one off soon,

- I figured out how to finally draw grass! Never thought it'd come this soon, so now I can go back to working on the Forest stage for Neo. I'll probably drop something regarding DBZ All Stars here soon, so stay tuned.

Spoiler: Goin thru changes...6? (click to see content)

As far as proportions go, I'm content, but the last thing needed is to compare him with my Clark sprite and make him look.... well, how Ralf should be compared to my Clark sprite, since he looks much shorter than my Clark rendition.

This wouldn't be much of a biggie, considering that I have no/am very much considering cancelling any CvS character projects (Ralf was one at a certain point), but since I want it to look perfect, I'll get around to it. You'll see the end version once I finish Stroheim's redux. I just thought I'd show you gaiz. :3

Also have this:

(http://orig06.deviantart.net/33d2/f/2016/085/7/e/_z2__machinedramon_by_zaitsu_hatter-d9wioak.gif)

I made separate short-circuiting frames to give to Balthazar, but I didn't add them to this because, honestly, 87 frames worth of Piccolo to scroll through... no. Considering that you can add them with MUGEN coding mumbo jumbo, I say it's fine.

Nice job at Machinedramon dude, two anime characters of my childhood,right there.
Shoudn't the explosion be bigger? How about the initial blast blow up just the head and after that the rest of the body blows up with little explosions MetalSlug style. Unless that is to Balth to decide.

(Viewer right or his right?) Agreed on the right arm now that I look at it, but I dunno about the other statement. Looking back at it, it looked like shit, but I'll keep that in mind for when I start the Clark/Ralf comparison. Nvm, a pixel move down is all it took.

So I was at Indigo today, and saw a copy of "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly", that one Deadpool comic where he teams up with Captain America and Wolverine...

At least that's what I thought, until I opened it and read that hilarious segment with Iron Fist and Luke Cage, so I decided to try and emulate the shading/anatomy of Iron Fist and Luke Cage (mostly Iron Fist), and this was the result:

I was drawing these while standing, as there was no where to sit (all the reading seats were taken :(), so naturally this is gonna look strange.

With that aside, I've been interested in the proportions of MARVEL and DC characters, and the way the authors handle inking. Does anybody here know of a good read about comic book proportions?

Glad y'all like it, the week worth of working on this was worth it.

Nothing much to post, but I'm opening up another freebie for sprites, because I'm not in the mood to begin redoing my old CPS3/JJBA sprites, or my old digital paintings for now; probably gonna redo my OC again, then put the redux on a small hiatus.

So you get to choose between these styles: CPS3, Garou: Mark of the Wolves, JJBA, and DBFC fuck DBFC.

In addition, I'll give you the option of having a small animation included within the request for practice; something like, IDK an idle, a walk, a taunt, some pose, whatever the hell. No attack like poses, unless it's a single sprite (in that case, you get one frame; sounds dumb, but I'm not in the mood for animating attacks)

They will not be done at a specific time, and I won't go about them in a quick manner. You are allowed to choose any character, as long as: it's not a lolicon/Touhou (I'm sorry, I just don't like them) char, his/her/it's design isn't impractical to bring to any of the above sprite styles (in other words, impossible to replicate in pixels), and a reference is provided; also, no gore/NSFW (blood is fine, and a slightly risque design is fine as well).

I've put up 8 slots, because I'm feeling very kind. First come, first served, so git'em while they are hot and fresh!

--SLOTS--
1. Bannou Seikaku (OC, requested by Bastard Mami, Yatagarasu) done
2. Yamato Nadeshiko (Street Fighter V, requested by City_Hunter, CPS3, single) done
3. Eltnum (Under Nite In-Birth, requested by ゴーストキラー, CPS3, idle)
4. Lilith (Darkstalkers, requested by ヤモリX, CPS3, single) done
5. Hilbert (PokeMon Black/White, requested by NamelessOnlinePlayer, CPS3, single)  done
6. Sessyu Tsukikage (Fighting Layer, requested by First Lt. Ding, CPS3, single) done
7. Bilstein (Star Gladiator 2, requested by kanodoom, CPS3, single) done
8. Cloud Strife (Final Fantasy 7, requested by Zemilia, CPS3, down taunt from Super Smash Brothers 4). in progress

That's the speed the arm moved at in the animation I got: (http://www.fightersgeneration.com/characters/bison-reg-cvs-stance.gif)

Though you are correct, a Capcom vs SNK 2 play-through with M.Bison says that the arm speed is not as fast as this, but I don't see it as a maker-or-breaker of the animation.
 
I'll look into it once everything is set in stone, but don't expect much.

The mistake I was referring to is that the viewer's right shoulder pad enlarges was getting bigger with the first 3 frames. An easy fix. And thank you, I can't wait to see him come to life.


[A more superior image will come in place of this]

@Bastard Mami:

I know the face is big, it's a terrible habit I'm trying to kill :(

There is also the fact (and I just realized this) that the hair is gonna be a bit different than Mami's original sprite, in the sense of having more loose strands, because without them, the hair is gonna look soooo empty (at least that and the face can be fixed easily).

Messing around with Photoshop brushes today, and I created a dither pencil (yeah, it took me a while to figure it out), and I need an opinion on the results of what I made with it.

So as a training stage for Capcom vs. Square Enix, I've chosen Cosmogenesis from Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII as a training stage due to it's charm, and the fact that I wanted a training stage that you wouldn't see everyday. So I fiddled around with the pencil settings and made a dither pencil, and the results of drawing with it (and editing by normal pencil) was this:

So the bottom line is for the above results, yay or nay?

I would like to know, because if the results are, well yay, I will be redoing the Forest stage for Neocide's Dragon Ball Z All-stars project (because lets be honest, it's a complete fucking mess as is), and maybe redo the Shibuya Crossing (which is, as of now, on indefinite hiatus).

So yeah, an answer would be nice. I gotta know.

Okay then, 4 yays it is, and with that, I will redo the Forest stage, from scratch with this new power.

While I go finish sprite request one, have a Vamp Jubilee:

It was a quick edit, 15 minutes or so. It would have been less, had I not been spriting with my laptop mouse (I misplaced my mouse somewhere, and couldn't find it).

What's going on with the knees

Not sure what you mean. Is there something wrong with them?

I tried to make them as close as possible to Mami's original sprite: (http://i158.photobucket.com/albums/t117/maximilianjenus/bannou_zpsbde29736.png)

If I was at home, it'd point it out and explain better, but it's... different..even looking at the source sprite. I think the shading contributes to it. The knee looks kinda far down on (her) left leg. The right one is hard to distinguish.

Use your own leg and hopefully you'll get what I'm saying. I'll gladly explain better in a few hours once I'm home.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on April 25, 2016, 03:19:23 AM
First DBFC sprite, and it's a complete disaster, ahahaha.

I see what you mean by the shading, I also realized that one part of the shading looks higher than another. I'll look at another source sprite and fix accordingly.

EDIT: I tried it again, comparing it to Kirino. How do they look now?
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: AlexSin on April 25, 2016, 01:00:12 PM
Worse, they don't even look like knees. The left knee (viewer's right) was right before, you just had to move it higher like Demitri said; and the right knee (viewer's left)... what is that?
The ear is too far from the head and the face's shading is wrong.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on April 25, 2016, 01:12:06 PM
How is the face shading wrong, when literally all the faces are shaded like that? Or at least Asuna's face.

I'll give the knees another look when I get home.

Alex (Sin again eh?) covered it pretty much. The calves are kinda off too if i didnt mention that last time. Like, they arent badly drawn at all, however given the angle and whatnot, its wrong (again use own legs for ref or google 'bent knee' to see photos that will show it). Once you fix the knee thing, i think fixing that will be easy.

Post by: lui on April 25, 2016, 11:09:01 PM
while its a good first attempt as a whole it just looks very awkward.

the arms are really detailed while the abs and the rest of her anatomy just looks flat, the face shape is weird too, it feels "sharp and small" if ya get my drift, the nose shouldn't be like that either.

it looks decent and its your first DBFC styled sprite so it's not that bad, but as a whole it still looks awkward in general, especially in the anatomy section.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on April 26, 2016, 03:17:41 AM
I guess I can fix most of it by actually adding some semblance of detail to her physique (Mami did tell me he wanted her to be a bit muscular); for that to happen, I have to fix up the legs first before anything. Can't say I agree with you on her face though.

Finished the artwork models for Yamato, Bilstein, and Lilith, will work on em once I sort out the first request.

while I'm here, @NamelessOnlinePlayer: I was fishing around for some Arkham Knight concept art because I forgot how he actually looked like, but I'm afraid that I'm going to have to ask you to change the character to one with a less impossible design, because I'm completely incapable of bringing a design like his into CPS3 style, there's just too much detail going on. Really sorry to have to inconvenience you with this.

It's OK. This is gonna be awkward to say, but I'll change my request from Arkham Knight to Hilbert from Pokémon Black & White (It's weird, I know, but I couldn't come up with a better idea).

Well, nothing lagged for me at all, but the stream (on Ghost Killer's end) cut off a few times.

As for the sprite, that's why I held the stream in the first place, for feedback and to blaze through the requests, so I can start studying anatomy more in depth. Since I've saved the big artwork before resizing it, I'll play around with it a bit more, and prepare something for tomorrow.

I think you could use better proportions for her. Her legs look too short and she's too wide in general. Also I think you should fix her neck. It's even wider than her thights.

I think you could use better proportions for her. Her legs look too short and she's too wide in general. Also I think you should fix her neck. It's even wider than her thights.

Since the problems you mentioned can be fixed easily, I went ahead and did that (might thin the neck a bit more later)

But I'm iffy on making her legs any longer, because she's 171 cm and Ryu, my height comparison is 175 cm; when I resized the terrible looking artwork I made, she was taller than Ryu, when she should be shorter while bending.

I might increase it by a pixel, but don't hold your breath on that.

Post by: sabockee on May 05, 2016, 10:29:53 PM
Her legs look too short in comparsion to the torso. Generaly she looks much bigger than regular sf3 sprite.. In the end, it is all about the wrong proportions.

I think I understand what you mean now, and all it took was a comparison between her and Ibuki/Makoto.

I'l figure something out and look into it, though to be honest, aside from her previously wide torso, I'm kind happy about how her other parts came out (though who's to say I can't refine them more? :-])

work more on getting women's proportions right. she's way too bulky.

While I'm at it, here's what'll be streamed tomorrow if I don't oversleep:

-Sessyu Tsukikage and Lilith, CPS3: Pretty much like my first stream, applying ink's new method in making CPS3 sprites, and shrinking the artwork.
- (if I don't oversleep) DBZ All-Stars "Forest" stage (doing the dirt floor) OR Capcom vs Square Enix small logo (choice is yours, if I don't oversleep).

I've done a sketch for Sessyu, and atm working on a Lilith sketch. By tomorrow, I'll have all my CPS3 refs, and organized color schemes for the two prepared.

Nadeshiko's getting the same treatment as well (albeit I'll be using the hands from my rendition, and Alex's head fixes; why waste them?).

Let's see.. heres what I see for Lilith

- Her grin is a bit too much, in my opinion (especially compared to the original image)
- One eye seems to be a bit bigger than the other
- Her ankles (?) dont really need to be defined so much
- Her hair comes in a bit too much at the neck
- The back of her head sticks out a little much, at least i think so
- At viewers left, her arm seems like it should be above the underarm / chest
- Viewers right boot is too thick

That's what i have for now. Hope to see good progress, and thanks again.

Thanks, I'll look into all of those tomorrow. As for the grin, I didn't take the original image into account, but I can make it like that if that is what you want.

I should probably add the I drew Lilith a bit differently than her original position in the source image (angle-wise), which is why there are some deviations.

Sorry,it's been irking me since the first sprite. I thought I alluded to it before but i'm pointing it out again.
Edit: Actually, the left one isn't as bad because of the angle, but it juts out too soon on the right (or it could just be how it's being drawn? something is off about it.
Too lazy to change what i wrote on the pic. It's the knee placement making it look off. Probably why its hard to pinpoint the issue. Knees pls. I do believe the angle/perspective on that leg is an influence too, so I still think that area is being drawn a little off.

Viewer's right arm could  use work overall. I won't comment on hands and feet but don't be afraid of using references. The perspective on the left foot is wrong and idk if you plan to fix it/noticed it. There's another issue but I don't feel like i can adequately explain it. Hopefully someone else can come save the day :P

Well, I did say "horrible hands and feet", so yeah, I did plan on fixing it.

So for knee placement in future sprites, should I keep them at the same level?

I'll try to draw this on paper because apparently, drawing it directly on computer hasn't been yielding anything fruitful.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Demitri on May 13, 2016, 05:26:39 PM
Just wanted to be sure, you could've just meant the size :P Alright. imma try to address the question and break down some stuffs.

So for your question, I can't really recommend anything. Part of the issue is the way everything is connecting due to incorrect proportions. The pelvis shouldve been lower, and i think this way if it followed your guidelines (I assume you were still using them but im not sure), the knee's position would be easier to ascertain because the legs wouldn't have become so massive, WHICH in turn caused you to compensate the space you had left and made shit look weird and messed up. You sort of know where it should be, but it starts looking weird because of the proportions, am i right?
Idk what will work best for you, and idk if i can give the best advice for this since i do things a bit more intuitively (granted, im using certain methods to keep things in check but i digress).

Asuna might not be the best help either since shes bony as hell. This girl has curvature other than her breasts. IMO you shold only be using Asuna for the height like you currently are, and shading reference. Use someone more muscular for proportions and such.

I tried to break down Asuna and then your sprite to maybe help you out some more.
(http://i.imgur.com/by3Dre9.png)
Overall, I think you need to make her thinner, because i feel like im outlining Sagat...
The pelvis has a curve to it, especially at the angle vs fighting games use, yours appears like a flat triangle (which wouldnt be bad if we were looking directly across/face to face). If you've seen Balmsold's, he kinda angles his trangles/pelvis. I circled it the first time but i didnt mention it, theres no need to sprite a buttcheek here. Let the hip/thighs do it for you at this angle. I'd suggest lowering the pelvis to that your legs arent forced to be so massive. I found myself making practically the same size legs you did. I hate drawing knees myself so I would take my observations with a grain of salt. Use human references to help if it still ends up looking weird after the other changes. I also hope you were able to see the issue with the neck.

I'm tired now. forcing me to use my brain too much

Alright, here's what I got (for Lilith, of course).

- Viewers left forearm is much too skinny where it comnects to the elbow.
- Viewers right hand.. just looks disconnected from her and odd.
- Eyes seem a bit too close together, at least imo
- The left part of viewers right boot, where it connects the shin and foot, is too wide.
- Grin looks a bit goofy, maybe use some anti-aliasing to try to "imply" a softer grin, if you understand me
- Whats with the shading around her crotch area? Doesn't seem like it should be there.
- Hair seems like it might be a tiny bit too short / small.

All I got for now.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Janis L.C.V. on May 15, 2016, 08:23:29 PM
All I can say is that left arm's gauntlet/viewer's right could use a bit of shading since its coming out of one of his sleeves.
Other than that it looks pretty good, great actually.

Post by: lui on May 15, 2016, 08:54:07 PM
That sessyu looks amazing so far, very naisuu

As for lilith her shading on the body looks off, it shouldnt get that much light in her crotch and abdomen areas
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on May 15, 2016, 09:16:46 PM
Thanks for the feedback, guys.

I can definitely fix everything said there, as for Lilith's hair, from what point is it too small/tiny? Length wise or width wise? Because the only change that occured is that the width from the viewer's right was minimized by a pixel, so I'm not really sure what to do there anymore.

Shading on the crotch, I was following along with eFEX's CPS3 rendition of Lilith: (http://orig01.deviantart.net/e4d3/f/2011/190/9/f/sf3_styled_sprite_by_omegaefex-d3liq9u.png)

But rubbing the dust off my eyes, I can see what you mean. I'll give it another jab.

Again, thanks for feedbacking. :)

Post by: Yamori X on May 15, 2016, 09:24:42 PM
I guess for the hair, it just didnt occur to me the last time I saw it.  I guess its just the proportions of her head / face with her hair that make it look too short, as well as the thickness of the bangs.

Her head is pretty much the right size, if you compare it with eFEX's sprite.... well, the chin could be curved a bit more now that I look at it. But still in terms of size, it's not really inaccurate.

For the hair, I can trace over the model artwork and sprite it after a resize/clean-up, shouldn't take me longer than 10-15 min to do. We can then (if you want) compare and see which one you like.

I mean it is your request after all, so tear it down, and ask away as much as you want. It's not really successful if something doesn't turn out the way you want it to be :)

Don't apologize, you did nothing wrong. Hell, you are giving me what I want, so there's no need to say sorry for anything.

KoF XIV Athena. Like Clark and Ralf, I opted to forsake certain details, like the frills on her skirt, and some shoe details (laces, star sign on the top of her shoes).

My submission for the May 2016 "Challenge of the Month", hosted by British artist extraordinaire Josiah "Jazza" Brooks of Drawing with Jazza fame.

Was fun making something original for once. (I'm a terrible cameraman, I know. Wish it wasn't my phone camera too.)

Can I have some feedback on Lilith's head? Like, I'unno, maybe the face? I'm pretty sure that the head size is good, but IDK what to do with the face.

Just for the record, I referenced eFEX's rendition of Lilith.

(https://66.media.tumblr.com/55628554c1d72e77d84ef3d0c32dbdc4/tumblr_o7g6tdI6Bq1ut4tduo1_500.png)

And lo and behold, work on Hilbert and Bilstein will commence.

Ryu's there pretty much for head size referencing, because fuck trying to make the height accurate against Ryu (shorter than/taller than/etc.) honestly.

I will still work on Bannou and Nadeshiko, but they'll take a bit of a backseat for Hilbert and Bilstein.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: Yamori X on May 20, 2016, 01:52:48 AM
Let me see. Her neck looks really awkwardly skinny, and her hair seems to need to be a bit longer downward, maybe a tiny bit less wide. Her head seems shaped a bit oddly as well, maybe try to even it out at the bottom, and make the curves on the chin less extreme. The face doesnt seem too bad at this point, and I assume you've been putting the other issues I listed before on hold.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on May 20, 2016, 02:08:07 AM
Sure, I can do that. And the other issues, I assume you mean the shoulder, boot width and ab lighting, which I will indeed refine.

At least the face worked out, sort of.

Theres also the viewers right hand and viewers left arm.

Viewer's right hand is almost the same as the model artwork (almost), it's missing a finger, so that can be arranged.

As for the v. left arm, I'll make sure to edit it again.

Post by: lui on May 20, 2016, 02:29:42 AM
it looks just fine, it's just due to the perspective really. i actually would want to make the palm of the hand a bit longer because those fingers are long as hell, especially compared to that hand on the v. left side. theres no palm at all. maybe shorten the fingers about a pixel or two and make the palm a bit bigger.

i know you love lilith very much but tbh i do think some of the suggestions are extremely nitpicky, remember there ARE limitations when it comes to pixel design. your suggestions are still very solid and are good but i just think some things like the hair suggestions are just really, really nitpicky.

I was just trying to help, I didnt realize I was being annoying. I know there are limitations but these are things that can be fixed. Also, I didnt think they were nitpicks, I just wanted to make it more accurate to the source image and Lilith as a whole.

Also didnt you disagree with me about that hand
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: lui on May 20, 2016, 03:10:23 AM
nah its not annoying, just letting ya know my 2cents really, you know lilith the most out of anyone here but at the same time there are limitations that prevent us from putting the exact details we all want on there. but by all means don't stop giving feedback, you're feedback is great, just giving you a heads up though about some really, really specific suggestions like the hair thing.
 when adapating a source image you need to remember the differences between anatomy, art style and lighting and you gotta adapt the style you're going for with the source picture while keeping those in mind, so there has to be some concessions at some point.

and let me elaborate on the hand, i meant that it looks fine that a finger is "cutoff" because of the perspective of the hand and how it's on the side. the size of the fingers and the palm though are stuff that i felt was a bit meh. sorry for not being so clear :P

Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on May 20, 2016, 04:04:40 AM
The Magneto cape is supposed to be edited later on to match how Bison's cape looks like in the Alpha games, I only chose it because of it's motion. Since the helmet is being seen as silly, what can I do to make it less silly?

Since this is supposed to be an amalgamation of M.Bison and the Ultima Weapon from Final Fantasy 7, there's still more to this I haven't done yet; no, it won't be just Bison, something.... diembodied, lets just say, will accompany him in battle.
Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: lui on May 20, 2016, 06:59:47 AM
well for starters edit bison a bit more to be more than just literally grey bison with an oversized helmet. give him new shinguards, arms, whatever, anything that adds to his overall design and blends well with the helmet. making the helmet a bit smaller can help too.

Work on Hilbert is picking up. I actually had lines for Bilstein put down as well, but I deleted them as they weren't very good looking in my opinion.

I opted to draw Bilstein on paper instead, so tomorrow or after, I should have at least the pixel lines done, and his neck and head shaded and detailed (Bilstein, I mean).

Title: Re: Zaitsu's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on May 25, 2016, 12:27:26 AM
I kinda widened him up to be a bit on par with other CPS3 sprites. As you know, most CPS3 sprites have big proportions, so in order to keep him in CPS3 standards and be on par with his original design, I had to widen him up.

I can make him skinnier if you want, that's no problem at all. But it'll probably be like a pixel or 2 minimization in width.

Glad you like the progress so far.

So uhh, unsurprisingly, Bilstein's chest plate was a lot harder than I though, heh. And apparently, his arms too.

So to tackle those two problems, it's time to use my contingency plan ink's CPS3 method, because it seems to be impossible to do it pixel by pixel.

Oh and made some progress on Hilbert, notably making him skinnier.

EDIT: Apparently, redrawing the thighs of Bilstein are a must too, because I fucked up on the angle, and noticed it just now. Scratch that, I'm gonna probably have to redraw the entire body, minus the head. WHY ME :bigcry:

A concept I've been working on for Strides 2 Glory* (note it's incomplete):

Spoiler: Only look if you don't appreciate your eyes (click to see content)

It's probably not gonna get taken, but I figured I should step out of my comfort zone for once, even if I am going to flop horrendously.

For those who may find it interesting, here's a small biography I whipped up:

Name: Aslan Metin
Origin: Antalya, Turkey
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 220 lbs
Nickname: "The Lion of Antalya"
Occupation: Turkish street fighter, antique store owner
Fighting style: mixed martial arts/wrestling: a balance of speed and strength, albeit more strength than speed, similar to Abel from Street Fighter IV
Bio: Aslan was a formidable fighter, well known in the fighting community for his massive strength and speed among heavier fighters. A punch from him would destroy the strongest of opponents. For years, Aslan was known as the reigning king of street fighting, and never suffered any losses; until one day, he chanced upon J.O.U (http://strides2gloryvs.com/j-o-u), and suffered a humiliating defeat at his hands. With his humiliating defeat weighing upon him, he went into a spiral of depression that culminated in him nearly killing himself, until his mentor and father figure Mehmet showed up and convinced him to train even harder and destroy the oddball fighter. And so, Aslan trains himself in all aspects of fighting tirelessly, until he catches wind of J.O.U participating in the Strides 2 Glory tournament, in which he decides to enter to destroy the man who nearly ruined him.

^bad story writing, I know.

However, this pretty much sums up one thing; if I'm gonna get into DP, I'm going to need a graphics tablet. Which means I'm going to start taking commissions at some point, sooner than I thought.

I should add that since the greyscale trees suck so hard atm, i might redo it if they don't look good when dithered.

Also, IDK why they are so small, but that's not the real size.

Have another WIP.


So concerning the the requests of Bastard Mami, Zemilia, and Ghost Killer:
-I have sent a PM to Mami regarding the possibility of doing it in another style, because I've honestly had it with DBFC style. I just can't work with this style.

-I have started on Cloud, but am scratching what I did, in favor of doing hand-made animation -> pixel animation, for practice reasons, and the fact is I don't want to draw over frames from YouTube screen caps. I plan on going the same route for Eltnum as well.

I'm sorry the final 3 requests are taking so long to do, I'll make sure you don't wait any longer. I've been having a lot of RL work to do as of late.

Also, after this, I won't be doing any requests for a long while. Capcom vs. Square Enix will be taking my attention (as well as DBZ All-Stars/MSHR/Kyo revamp). I might post other stuff here from time to time, but don't expect much.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the above posted image is a WIP of Cormag from "Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones", in CPS3 style (again).

EDIT 2: Since I've also returned from Sherbrooke to Montreal, I might do a stream of the requests + Cormag. Maybe.

Heh, yeah I decided to up the ante a little bit. Some things need to be fixed, like the arm muscles, but that shouldn't be too hard.

Also, a Valter edit of this sprite could be in order. In this case, the head, arms, and chest plate would need to be changed, but I don't think that would be a challenge for me. And then add a cape, change the color of the Wyvern, and boom. CPS3 Valter. :D

So without further ado, here's my progress so far:

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on July 18, 2016, 01:28:26 AM
I actually had to go back and see how Cormag looked just to see if it was right lol. I completely forgot how he looked. @_@;

Are you using his official art for the sprite? Because maybe his shoulder pads are too big (or maybe it's the angle that they're done at. This is to the left one. The right one looks perfectly fine at that angle IMO), and maybe he's a bit too wide? The head looks perfectly fine to me, as well as the armor itself. That's all I got so far, it's turning out pretty good otherwise.

(Also, we must see the Ryu Shoryuken an actual dragon. That'll put meaning to "Dragon Punch" for sure!)
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on July 18, 2016, 02:07:18 AM
I'm doing a mix of both the official art and the original sprite. As for his shoulder pads, I was under the impression that the left viewer one was made intentionally bigger than the right viewer one (original sprite) because it was further away from view? Of course, I could make the left one a bit smaller, it'd be no problem at all.

As for wide, I dunno, from here, he feels as wide as a CPS3 character should be.

Glad to know his head is fine.

And:

I actually haven't really looked too hard at the sprites themselves while LPing the games, come to think of it. Are they like that in the sprites? Then again, the sprites are pretty generic for most characters anyways so...hmmmm.

Yeah, the wideness thing is a thing I'm not 100% sure on since I don't know just how wide someone of his build would actually be in CPS3 style at all.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: lui on July 18, 2016, 08:35:57 AM
the yatagarasu sprite's breasts look weird, they look droopy and sag too much downwards.

pretty much the way her upper-torso is positioned compared to her legs is awkward as well. no fighter in that kind of fighting style stands straight up like that, make her lean forward a bit more and put the hands closer to eachother to give the impression of good defense and no openings.

her viewers right knee is pointy as hell and isn't positioned properly, put them a wee bit more up.

arms are a bit too small and timid, beef em up a bit more.

finally, her face's shading is off, from what i can tell yatagarasu's lightsource is from the direct top, but her face is lit up with the impression its coming straight from the front.

Post by: Janis L.C.V. on July 21, 2016, 01:38:57 AM
Alright so.
-Her waist could be wider, from the behind especially.
-Her left/viewer's right foot should be longer.
-Her right/viewer's left hand needs a bit more of depth on the fingers, although you should change it into a closed fist to match with her other arm. It's more fitting for a fighting stance that way.
-Shading on her right/viewer's left knee needs a bit less coverage on it. This is hard to explain, apologies.
Other than that, the sprite looks pretty good. I can't find everything, but I'm sure someone else could look better into this.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on July 21, 2016, 01:44:08 AM
1- To be fair, characters in Yatagarasu (from the refs I gathered) seem to have skinny waists.
2- Fixable, but will probably do l8r.
3- Fixable, but will probably do l8r.
4- Was mimicking/trying to mimic Hanzo's shading for the most part. But I'll just put it as the same as 2/3.

Thanks for feedbacking however.

My main issue is that I think the upper body and lower body don't seem to connect. Did you sprite them seperately perhaps? There should be more of a pronounced hourglass shape/curve, especially if you're going for Yatagrasu style.

the sidescrolling is way too fast for that movement, the backround should also be in reverse as he is walking forwards, which should make the backrounds actually go behind him rather than forward

So I'm dead set on doing a Valter version of this sprite once I shade in Genarog (the wyvern). But I'm willing to do one more variation from any of the Fire Emblem games, on the grounds that it's a male Wyvern unit (it could be Rider, Lord, or Knight), and his concept art design is not drastically different than Cormag's (so that all I need to do is make a new head, and some appropriate color swaps).

Anyone have a suggestion for the third variation?

Post by: hatter on July 27, 2016, 11:37:32 PM
Yo, I would love to sprite a CPS3 Narshen, but the fact is that his concept art shows he has more "costume" details than either Valter or Cormag that need more spriting (I'm doing a mixture of concept art/Wyvern Knight in-game sprite for Cormag/Valter), so I guess it's a no here, unfortunately.

Maybe at a later point, I'll definitely do Narshen. It would be a good chance to sprite a CPS3 Runesword. :3


Well anyways:

That dragon sprite is crazy. Pretty cool.
In my opinion, it could use a little more of work. Mostly in the nape, jaw and tail.
For the tail, you make more roundish, like this:

Don't know about the girl, CPS3?
What about put a little more of contrast in her legs, remove the the left pixels of both knees and maybe increase a little the width of her feet.

The new head you made doesn't look as good as the older ones, tbh. You could copy the head from this preview from before as it was much better:

Of course, implement the critiques I mentioned earlier to it with the shading. Also, the legs need to be longer and slightly smoother. Right now they are too short and bulky. The skirt needs fixing up too, it looks flat and it is angled a bit wrong to the pose.

Her legs definitely need to be more lean. SF3 doesn't have any really good references, I'd say see SFV Karin to get a good idea of how Eltnum should look.

Head should also be smaller, and upper body might need to be made a bit shorter too.

B definitely has the better face.

Quick edit I did so the lines look kinda rushed, but this is what I meant about the proportions. Give her a more comically feminine build.

Thanks for the input, but I'm forsaking those proportions. I'm sticking with the legs/skirt I traced off (albeit with more refining coming up) of the UNiB sprite.

Any more opinions on who has the better face?

I've tried looking at it multiple times at different zooms, but I just can't shake the idea that she looks cock-eyed. Like she's looking in opposite directions at the same time.

Post by: Demitri on August 05, 2016, 04:21:02 PM
To me, i just think the mouth looks weird. It's the pixel meant for the nose, being so close to the mouth, it just looks like a slanted line (ala :/)

Regarding the eye, i'd kill/move a few pixels. You can kinda see how Capcom cheated with Ryu's fac ein your ref sprite though i guess its not exactly the same angle. You could look at older capcom sprites like Sakuras. I remember them doing some funky stuff to consolidate on the eyes and stuff.

or just leave it
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 05, 2016, 04:29:28 PM
The only thing I did at this point was trace over Makoto's face, because she was the only char that had the appropriate angle (the angle that GK wanted). The only change I did was making it less wide than Makoto's by like, a pixel.

So yeah, at this point, it stays.

Post by: CRASHEM8000 on August 05, 2016, 05:49:36 PM
The reason the eyes bother me is because he used black for the eyelashes, so my eyes automatically see them as her irises, like on SNK sprites. So it just looks to me like her eyes are facing opposite directions.

So I decided to do some head practices. Tried out diff head types, positions, and stuff. Thoughts? What should I do next? Draw existing chars, people in RL and see if I can do it right or something??

I honestly have no idea where to go/how to progress with artistic anatomy, so.... a pointer or two?

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 13, 2016, 12:01:46 AM
The best way to learn is to just try out things for yourself without any references. Of course, having references isn't a BAD thing, mind you, but you learn a bit more trying things out first, and then looking at other sources and seeing what you could be doing differently or what is similar enough IMO. Of course, I'm not an artist so what do I know!?

Anywho, if you're aiming for more head practices, try this: Start with a pure frontal view of the head, then rotate it to the left or right (whichever way you want to go with first) and draw it that way. Think of a clock. You have your four cardinal directions, and then you have the 4 directions directly between said directions (so you have 8 directions in total to work with). Try that without having the head looking up or down, and when you think you've got the look down on that, then try it with the head tilted up/down some and do the same there until you feel you've got that down.

I could probably whip up a few other practice exercises if you want, like I've done in the past before with the 100 eyes, mouths, faces, etc.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 13, 2016, 12:07:49 AM
See that's what I'm not sure about. I know that I definitely have to sketch something, but do I go about it from my imagination, w/ a reference at the beginning, draw from life, hire a nude model for a measly price (yeah, this is already off my list.)? I'm under the assumption that trying things out for myself would come after getting comfortable with anatomy, and actually having a decent grasp on the fundamentals. Which I don't. So what would step one be?

I guess also having books is a nice thing, like that one book by Andrew Loomis GDM tells me to get, and Dynamic Anatomy by Burne Hogarth, which I have (and used when doing these head practices).

I could probably whip up a few other practice exercises if you want, like I've done in the past before with the 100 eyes, mouths, faces, etc.

When I finish Zemilia and GDM's requests, I'm tots up for it. Maybe something more difficult too.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 13, 2016, 12:37:07 AM
Hmm. I already gave you the tutorial I used for heads, didn't I? The one that Proko summarized an entire Loomis book about? That'd be a good start, I think. I tried to read Loomis and whatnot, but I personally couldn't get anything out of it at all. Might've been because I was using the wrong books or something, but...the video helped me out far more than the books did. But that's me heh.

The easiest thing to do is start with the basics. First step I say is draw 100 circles. You might've already done this already, but do it again. Try it without actually using any tools, and see if you can get a good circle. Now...you may think that's easy, but it's not as easy as it seems. Especially if you DON'T use your wrist, which you shouldn't be using your wrists for art. You're not writing anything, and that leads to carpal tunnel and arthiritis (sp?) and other bad things, so try to do it by moving your arm instead of your wrist. It's fine if you're doing more detailed stuff I think?

Once you get the circle down, it's just a matter of splitting it into smaller circles and other such shapes that the head takes on. Most of these are pretty much smaller circles in themselves for the most part. Though you may ALREADY know this but...
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 13, 2016, 12:40:33 AM
Well I got to start somewhere don't I? If it's got to be the bare basics, then so be it. Guess it's circles and other basic shapes then (before I do any actual anatomy)!
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on August 13, 2016, 12:45:20 AM
Just in case, I will toss this to you again:



That at least gives you basic shapes for the head. I'd also recommend looking at how shapes are defined for the body. You'd be surprised at how many are just triangles, circles, and squares and work fine for building the body (granted, I couldn't get past heads myself but...). But that's after you get heads down more. Or if you're tired of trying heads and want to try another body part or some such.

Work in progress.

EDIT: I should clarify this, but the viewer's right ear is actually supposed to be torn off, hence why it looks smaller than the other.

His hands as well are supposed to be small; at least that's what concept art tells me.

So I only got to 4 frames of this because I'm too lazy to finish phase 1 today. My plan is to make it 10 frames like Eltnum. You can tell how bored I got with this as Cloud's head quality progresses in the animation and even some of the proportions; it's honestly laughable.

By the way, I made a PayPal account, so when I'm ready and stuff, expect a Hatter's commissions thread at some point.

Hmmm well let's see:

-Kyo still needs to have all his normals revamped, and I'm still not done with that.
-Tifa and Asura are having tortoise progress on their graphics. It is also correct to assume that Gene will have the same speed as well.
-I haven't done squat for Annihilus for 2+ weeks.

I'd have to say no, which is one reason why I will never do a full character commission. It's too much at this point, especially if I want to get work done for Capcom vs Square Enix.

Great looking sprite. The face however.. doesn't scream Cloud. It just looks more like Ryu cosplaying as him (along with the "bulkiness" of the sprite too).

Could have used Remy as a reference imo, since he's the closest thing to a bishounen-ish char in SF3.

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Duos.act on August 22, 2016, 09:18:58 PM
IMO there's no need to make him skinnier anyway because the SF3 proportion style is naturally exaggerated.  He does look a bit jarring compared to his normal build but Cloud always has some slight definition to him compared to Remy.

Since ppl are asking if I take commissions, I started futzing around w/ prices and stuff, so after looking around the commission threads of others:

5 CDN: CPS2/JJBA

10 CDN: CvS

12-15 CDN: CPS3 (single sprites), my own style (once I nail it down)

-for pixel animations, every frame after the first will run you about maybe 2-3 CDN, and the prices are both negotiable and variable (depending on complexity and size). And as I learn new things, I add new criteria and prices.

^^does this sound good?

That's great process buddy! You've been improving quite a lot lately! Keep it up!

A few possible ways to make the animation better
(http://i.imgur.com/ovffgwD.gif)
If you look closely I quickly adjusted some of the swords lengths,the arms lengths in some frames and the frame placement (always try to imagine where someone would put his/her weight on during an animation) ;)
His standing tall frames could probably need a few pixel in it too (considering how tall he is with bent knees already)
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 26, 2016, 02:49:05 PM
Hey thanks for doing that, I'll gladly take those changes.

Just so you can know, he actually remains somewhat stationary in the source (see here at 1:51) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihxc3bqdsec)), but I like what you did there with the placement. I'll apply it last so I can have the glory of seeing it all in motion. :)

Also, if I don't get any objections to the above posted prices, I'm going to go with them when I start commissions.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: no1wammy on August 26, 2016, 07:22:02 PM
I just want to make something clear. As I'm interested in CPS2 sprites, is it $5 CAN per frame or $5 CAN for style + $3 CAN per frame? And what about PayPal fees?

Will the price be different if I commission a sprite from scratch (no base)?
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on August 26, 2016, 08:19:09 PM
5 CDN then 2-3 per frame (I still haven't decided whether I want to charge 2 or 3 yet). The 2 (or 3) CDN charge applies to all styles.

PayPal fees apply I guess?

Will the price be different if I commission a sprite from scratch (no base)?

Depending on: a) the style you choose b) the size c) the design's complexity then yes it will.

Everything's negotiable, but if it's something that's really difficult, you might end up paying more. It just depends.

EDIT: I should have added this to the last post, but for the first while or so, I will only be available for single sprites, and simple animations. Think along the line of things like Shock, or something that isn't difficult. I need a breather from animating.

Also, I will not be available for full char commissions. Like, ever.

So me and GDM were talking yesterday, and he asked if I can make the character's pose comparable to that of Blade from Red Earth (you can see he's right there), so I changed it.

Also, he came up with a name for her: Freya.

As for Cloud, I've reached the 5th frame. I'm doing it like this: hair and head/clothing, then sword. I should be done with both Freya and Cloud by the 31st of this month or September 1st (sure of it). Then, no more freebies foreverrrrrr.

Freya's finished. Based her face off of Poison, and as you can see it's much different than the above (in the last, her face was based off of Remy. Big mistake).

Color change has also done a bundle for the armor.

If I'm not lazy or anything, Cloud should actually be done by tonight.

So what's left for this:
-Finish the 7th frame. and from there the 8th and 9th.
-Fix up that awful hair I put down, and make it something simpler and actually accurate to the Advent Children design.
-Put in shading for the sword.
-Tiny fixes here and there (I'm eyeing the first frame).

After that, I'll redo two of my old JJBA sprites (Prishe/Toph Beifong), and then, commission time. :D

Since it's hard to see the details because of the colors (to be fair though, I robbed them from the assorted cast of JJBA), here's the sprite at %200 size:

Glad you like it fam. As for her in the CvSE project, she'll probably be worked on near the end, along with Ashley Riot (since I'm giving DLC chars lowest priority :/), but if anything, adding detail to her will be easier than here because I can add some exaggeration to her proportions and stuff, giving me more working space and such.

But yeah, after doing this sprite, I really can't wait to progress w/ the project till that point, I have a feeling I'm gonna enjoy working on her. :D

Post by: hatter on September 19, 2016, 04:36:39 AM
^I can see custom hitsparks for your full game become a reality. ;) (but only when I figure mine out first).


So from the title, I'm starting a new thing. Gonna be doing whatever's in the title for all subsequent posts. Figure drawing/anatomy are the first arc.

(http://imgur.com/qEhyBQb.jpg)

One out of many. Mode was "10 minute mode", and I failed to abide by that time limit. Gonna be doing it so that I take less time than that, up until I can do 30 second mode. Later on, anatomy studies will be done w/ and w/o references.

SO things I have to watch out for next time:

-Length of upper extremities: It seems that I tend to make large shoulders/elongated biceps and triceps almost all the time. This I must rectify, and is prime target number one.

-Head size: I tend to make them too big at normal angles, and too small in other angles (also too big as well).

-Female body type: So I nailed it (sort of) on the left-most figure drawing, but screwed it up on the middle. Made the ballerina's hands too defined and muscly, and the torso is a mess. Focus must be put into the female body type, and its features.

So that's that. Feel free to follow this arc and what'll follow it, and give input.


Shameless plug, but I'm still open for commissions (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/hatters-commissions-topic-176250.msg2288113.html#msg2288113). Get'em fast, get'em while my nose isn't runny.

Post by: hatter on September 22, 2016, 03:35:37 AM
(http://imgur.com/t2ff9xQ.jpg)

So with this, there are some slight improvements, the most prolific being that it actually didn't take me the whole "10 Minutes" mode to draw these out, something I'm happy about. In addition, they were drawn on the spot; no guide-lines then drawing over them (except for the extremities, just to determine the length; it was in the form of a stick. Only exception).

So heads seem to be fine, and the length of upper extremities seems good. However, some new snags were encountered:

-In the second figure (undergarment gunman), the leg position looks too squashed together, and the leg muscles are drawn quite awkwardly (see the viewer's right?), and the feet look really-uhhh flat.

-Back to the first one (squatting swordsman), the viewer's right pectoral is drawn too stretched out. I mean, yeah, his arm is put in a manner such that the pectoral should stretch, but it shouldn't be the way I did it. To add, it seems I bunged up on the size of the biceps, again (big on one, small on another). Sigh.

-Onto the fourth one (inclining cave-woman. I'm actually a bit proud of this one  :pleased:), her chest doesn't look feminine. I feel like I drew it more man like than how a female breast should look like.

So what will I watch out for next time?
  -Leg positioning and leg muscles/feet shape.
  -Length of pectoral when outstretched/size of biceps on both arms
  -Female chest. Draw it properly :yes:

Speed in drawing character gestures improved quite a bit. But as with any learner, here's what I have to watch out for and improve next time:

-Torso width (don't make it wide for thin ppl, don't make it thin for wide ppl)
-Width of legs (not too chunky for a woman, I seem to always make this mistake)
-Head and facial features (everything. This will have it's own set of studies, completely separate from what I'm doing here).


Can someone explain to me how I can convey the center of gravity in a drawing? My drawings seem to all universally lack this, so an explanation would be nice.

I resized and frame-trimmed this from some frames I found on google. If you can ignore the aura and trace the frames themselves you might just have a better stance. It's about the same amount of frames a CvS stance should have. I hope this helps.

To add onto this, sometimes doing "tracing" or whatever can lend itself to letting you learn things in itself. Might be able to further understand how poses or anatomy works by doing it that way. Of course, relying TOO much on it might be a good thing in itself, but using bases isn't a bad idea in itself.

this was the original gif I found on google. I sized him down close to CvS size and reduced the amount of frames in between. It's not as smooth but it gets the job done. I could literally resize the rest of Werewood's Oni sprites and you'd have yourself a decent base to go off of. I don't know who ripped it but it's better than the stance in Werewood's Oni since it's smoother and you could make a solid CvS animation out of it. I would do it myself but I'm not very skilled with spriting details like muscles and such.

No.

Like, there is a smooth animation going on in here, but the movement is incredibly lackluster. All he does is stay still and move his arms with a bit of sub pixelling to the legs. You should try to create a breathing movement that actually causes him to move slightly upwards and to the side, instead of staying on the same position.

Just look at the reference posted in here. It's not that hard to see it.

Like many people have pointed out, you are allowed to use references. You're not supposed to trace things if you're switching styles, though. Proportions/muscle definition/style vary wildly between games, so you're still going to have to redraw things if you want the sprites to look accurate.

Using the existing animation as a base though is still the best way to get the movement to match with the original. That's how I did my CVS SF5 sprites. You'd still be hard pressed to find an exact frame that matches my sprite 100%, because as I mentioned, it was redrawn to fit the appropriate proportions.

Regarding your progress, well... all I can say is stop cropping things for movement. If something moves, get into the habit of redrawing it. There's nothing wrong with cropping in and of itself, but you need to learn how to make sufficient changes so that it's not so obvious.

The best way to learn this is to go the long way round of actually redrawing each frame and then go back and see which parts you could've saved time on without sacrificing animation quality and which ones you would've had to redraw anyway.

Things that this sprite is missing right now are:

ah, i can see that you're a bit peeved from the way you typed it, sorry that you feel this way but you need to remember that some of these guys have been spriting for many many years, way longer than you and me (iirc we started around the same time? i mean on mfg atleast) and all they want is to see you do your best work, especially for commissions.

there's no harm using an existing movement as a base to go from, as long as you're not actually editing straight off of the sprite it's fine, a lot of proffessional companies have used bases as well.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: SlenderMan on September 27, 2016, 04:59:47 AM
you're looking for a way to shave off the time it takes to complete a sprite. tracing means you already have the structure there instead of fiddling with it multiple times. sometimes the hands are a bit messed up on these 3D models since they're resized but your general path is clear to the rest of the details there. More good looking sprites coming out faster means not only are you good with quality but time management as well. You never know you might get more commissions this way.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: MotorRoach on September 27, 2016, 12:00:56 PM
1. Tracing off a base is nothing that will condemn you, especially if you do it right. Chamat has done it before and the execution was flawlessly well done. You don't see anyone trying to tear him apart for doing so either:

(http://orig12.deviantart.net/dbf0/f/2016/202/d/e/sfz_shoma_home_run_super_by_chamat-daaw3sq.gif)

2. You're clearly trying to simplify the animation way too much. The Oni gif on the top of the page has 12 frames... yours has 6. Not only it does not look smooth for the kind of stance that Oni has, but it just feels lackluster in general.

3. Taking one base sprite and editing the body little by little through frames is something I do when the animation warrants for mostly sub-pixels and a slow movement:

(http://pixeljoint.com/files/icons/full/miststance1x.gif)

...and that's not the case for Oni's stance. Is it doable? A little, but even I tried to tweak the movement, and clearly it would require too much effort to get the job done through such method:

(http://i.imgur.com/wEFH26c.gif)

All that effort might as well be used to making a new sprite for each frame anyway. You still have to make his belt animate as well, given it's not meant to be completely still, and plus, it will likely feel much more natural if you start by making a new outline for each sprite and then shading it.

Post by: │ㄷ ▌ on September 27, 2016, 08:14:15 PM
Hmmm... It jumps too much. (I was going to post this before but it is too long, I hope it's not too late):

(The new one:)

*The head and the hair seem to be separated since the hair moves too much.
*The belt jumps with an unnatural movement.
*His left pant leg (artist's right) has also an unnatural movement
*Both pant legs are different, one simple and one with spikes
*The proportions in this one are better from the previous one, so probably you just have to edit this one to give it proper animation fixes.



As MotorRoach says I trace bases, it saves a lot of time, plus is one of the best ways to make sure the result is going to look pro, the other ones are frankenspriting and if you are an excellent animator do it by yourself from 0.

Also as MotorRoach suggests he did a great base for the movement but if you want to try by your own and don't depend from no one (no insult to nobody) for your commissions you perhaps want to use the Head Method I propose, since you don't necessarily have to trace over the reference, just apply the movement even if yours style is different:

Head Method

okay let me help you with this and explain how do i do the stand animation.
The way i do them is using "El método de la cabeza", Head method.
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

[Animation Tutorial] (http://mugenguild.com/forum/msg.1576055)

Oni's first step, using the head as the main axis:
(http://i.imgur.com/ohnFNeq.gif)

You can trace at the end each frame you edited to make it look like all of them were hand drawn.

I recommend to trace over once you have something solid that looks to the style you want and not directly the reference gif, most of the time I either edit the reference gif to make it closer to the style I want or do the Head Method and then retrace.



(For the previous one:)

Hmmm proportionwise and shadingwise I can't say your Oni is in CvS style, he is too wide it's more notable in the torso were its pectoral area has a different shading. It can be fixed without any problem. You need to use more references.

The pants are well done.

Just as a nitpick: I'm not too fond of that blue palette since it's too bright.



I'm going to be a dick and propose the ones I liked most from other authors:

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: SlenderMan on September 28, 2016, 12:23:36 AM
the outline animation looks good so far. I actually reduced the frames from the big version of the gif I posted down to about the same Ryu or Akuma has as I have no clue what the official standard is for the amount of frames. Don't be offended man we're just trying to help. The new animation looks killer and pretty much the only reason it's jumpy was because of the gif itself. I had to skip a frame or two to get the general motion to seem smoother. you could always edit the belt or the hair as long as the rest is good.

On a different note remember that his power is constantly flowing like wind upward so it blows his clothes around as his power roils around him. See SSF4:AE. Same with Evil Ryu. Both of them have flowing energy rising. I'm sure that his hair whips around a little bit because of it.

That looks incredible, man. A million times better than when you were cropping stuff.

Don't get frustrated. Just because it takes you more time to do this doesn't mean you're not good at it. It's supposed to take longer if you're doing it the right way. Stances are especially hard. My profile pic took a whole week, man.

The more subtle the movement the harder it is to get right because any pixels that are off will make them look jumpy. When you're doing a huge motion, you don't have to worry so much because each body part is in a completely different place from where it was in the previous frame. As long as it's shaded similarly, nothing looks off. Like people said, it's all about sub-pixel animation. You're not so much redrawing the outlines as you are recoloring the insides to give off the appearance of movement so that you can avoid stray pixels jumping around or appearing out of nowhere.

Yo, that happened to me too, but like, between 2014 and 2015. And that's pixel wise. And now it happens again but drawing wise, huzzah.

And you read my mind completely, but my time frame is to fill up the sketch book I bought from Cleveland, then rework my old  (and quite shitty) digital works once I get my mitts on a tablet.

You should try your hand at that. Maybe even commissions, with your skill, they should be easy to nab.

So the character commissioned has a... weird design to say the least.

I can't see the ref pics you posted. Maybe upload them somewhere on imgur?

Otherwise, pose looks alright. Looks like she's a bit nervous, tho.

Post by: hatter on October 01, 2016, 06:45:29 AM
Uploaded them to imgur.

The nervousness could be because of how the viewer's right arm is positioned. Maybe I can make it match that of the 2nd ref image instead?

It would have been easier if there were more pieces of this character, but there were only 4, and only the posted 2 had that outfit.

Was inspired by @StevenB:'s work on his OCs to start reworking some of my own. ^^Name's Vincent Drakeler, and well, he's a duck.
Will think of a story for him when I rework most of my OCs.

Red Arremer sketch.

Sorry for the angle of the shots, I couldn't do any better than what I got. Shows you how bad of a camera man I am. :/



Not so much freebies, but I'm having a hard time figuring out who I should pixel in my free time when working on my own pixel style, particularly fighting game chars. I'm open for suggestions. So far, only Frieza, Allen Snider, and Ogre (who have unfinished pixels in the Finish-A-Sprite thread) are confirmed, and maybe Luffy.

Just to clarify, I already know what I'm going to draw as test subjects for platformer/HD (think Skullgirls)/backgrounds in my slowly-being-built-up style. So just fighter chars are what I'm having a hard time choosing.

Fighting game characters, eh? Does it have to be strictly from a 2D fighter, or does 3D work fine (seeing as Allen and Ogre are listed there)? I might have some suggestions for ya to try.

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Xenomic on October 02, 2016, 03:43:27 AM
Well, here's my suggestions. Some easier than others (of course, all females for the most part):

Erel Plowse (from Evil Zone). Simple enough design, bar maybe the armor parts.
Dizzy (Guilty Gear). Can try the original or the Xrd version. More complex stuff, but bringing hi-res down to the style you do might be interesting.
Lilica Felchenerow (Arcana Heart). Same dealio. Simple design, just bringing it down to your style.
Roomi (Galaxy Fight). Super simple and should be the easiest of the bunch.
Suika Ibuki (Touhou). Yeah, have fun with that one making it fit right lol.
June (Star Gladiator). Nothing to add here really.


I...don't know if PXZ would count as one or not. It tries to be but at the same time it isn't lol. I also left out some that were fighters but decided they probably wouldn't fit here (such as Tales of VS). Maybe one of those might peak your interest? ^^

Yep, I'm still open. However, keep in mind that I may not do all of them, but don't be discouraged from giving any.

But that Lovecraftian demon is a must, so there is a high probability that I'll do that one. Animated too, I have a good idea of what to do with him.


So hopefully tomorrow,  alongside sketches that I've been doing, I'll begin work on my pixel style, starting with fighters, beginning with either Gogeta, Kotal Kahn, or Allen Snider. I encourage you to give any tips/feedback you might have. Seeing that this is a work-in-progress, your participation is very much appreciated.

You will def be the reason why full-characters in this WIP style will happen. The future is now. ;)

So yeah, I'm late, I got caught up with shit, but for now:

(http://imgur.com/MxcqnIl.gif)

So yeah, it's still not finished. Kinda hope to finish it next week, but IDK what RL's gonna fuck me in the ass with :sick:


(http://imgur.com/6qKMVrQ.png)    || (http://orig01.deviantart.net/8d9f/f/2016/244/e/a/_original_style__farfetch_d_by_yahyanass-dag4ppp.gif)

I couldn't finish it today, because I was a bit tired, but I'm going to give a rundown of what "Requiem" in general is all about. I'll focus on fighters, but some aspects will carry over to other styles (platformer, RPG, HD sprites (think Skullgirls)). Also, it was traced from some concept art I found online (Budokai??).

Requiem's primary source of inspiration is JoJo's Venture. You can see in Gogeta (and my first attempt at it, Farfetch'd) how I used the color black almost universally, so that is to be expected. In terms of proportion and anatomy, it'll depend on the character. It can range from rail thin to enormous and muscular, or even a balanced anatomy and proportion.

But everything needs a limit however. I'll be working on different types of characters to set a limit to how big/small a character can be in this style, but think of it as the difference between Servbot and Sentinel; smallest char in MvC2 and largest char in MvC2.

Light source is top center, like Capcom vs SNK, but the rule about further limbs being darker than closer limbs in SFZ/MvC style applies.

As for coloring, the first idea was for a usage of monochrome colors in the same fashion that CPS3 had a second set of colors. I planned to use colored monochromes depending on character personality (see Farfetch'd). CPS3-ish coloring is the way to go.

So, yeah, that's about it. Thoughts, suggestions, ideas?
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on October 09, 2016, 05:03:19 PM
So the whole monochrome idea is gonna be thrown out the window, it just doesn't work. It worked with Farfetch'd, but that's because the colors lined up right, and I put a limited use for it, so CPS3-ish coloring it is.

So I finished Gogeta:

(http://orig02.deviantart.net/5c21/f/2016/283/a/f/_original_style_test__gogeta_by_yahyanass-dakisfg.png)

He's the first of other tests. Let me know what you think, and what I should do for the other test (Allen).

I agree with the shoulder edit, but the forehead edit was needed, if you look at your base/reference
( http://i.neoseeker.com/ca/dragon_ball_z_budokai_tenkaichi_3_conceptart_ismSK.jpg  :charming: ) his hair line is higher. Actually the forehead should look more or less like that in real life ( https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/44/Male_forehead-01_ies.jpg ).

So yeah, bigger sizes kill my motivation, so I won't be continuing it. To be fair, the only finished one is Chingling, but I don't like the idea I went for now that I look at it, the black outlines in this case look too jarring.

I'm ruling out the usage of black outlines, JJBA did it will, but for some reason, I feel it'll complicate everything, I want to go for simplicity.

So test 3 is Allen and *drum roll* Ada Wong. Will now look into a CPS3-ish size this time around.

So have some assorted pixel stuff:

Almost done with this. I'm aware that the hand shake portion doesn't look dynamic enough (mainly due to how I positioned it), but it'll be looked into soon. Plan on finishing this tomorrow or after, I slept on this for far too long.

(https://66.media.tumblr.com/56fac1cdfbad9337a19dfb47af4a310b/tumblr_of48z3Ygy81ut4tduo2_400.gif)

Frame 1/10 cleaned. Good thing I like Piccolo, otherwise I'd have lost all motivation to take this one up.

(https://66.media.tumblr.com/c0a6e52d3099442458c135ae91542772/tumblr_of48z3Ygy81ut4tduo3_1280.png)

Today, I remembered which brush I used to make the left-most foreground tree, so I made a new one. Now knowing the process, the only logical step is to redo all the other trees, right?

I will double time it on the elements, so as to give them to Neocide and GLB as soon as possible, because if I'm gonna work on the next Dragon Ball Z All-Stars stage, I want to at least have finished coding Ryu, and maybe get most of Tifa and Asura's pixels out of the way first.

As for Allen and Ada, I've finished a paper sketch, which needs heavy fixing once translated into computer, tomorrow, I should at least have them outlined/fixed, and part of Allen done.

Oh crap I think you misunderstood. Or I wasn't very clear. There is 1 frame in there that has smudges on Piccolo. Right before the clone comes out. You can see Balth used a smear tool on the actual sprite. That's the only one I need. Balth didn't feel like trying to fix that particular sprite.

It's far from perfection, but I've figured out a direction I want to go with. Of course, as I get better, it'll get better with me.

For the most part yes it uses colors from Prodigy's attempt at a CPS3 Allen, but I wanted to use them to give you an idea of what I have in mind for future color schemes.



Since I'm gonna be buying a tablet soon, I though celebrate by preparing a very rough sketch of my future logo:

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: lui on October 23, 2016, 08:43:35 AM
it looks straight up like cps2. which is a good thing, but if you want to make it your own you might wanna stylize is a lot more.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on October 23, 2016, 05:17:27 PM
Yes and no, CPS3 size (might have butchered that in the process, but ignore that for the time being) and colors, but that's not important.

And of course stylizing is gonna happen. You thought this was the end of it? I just needed a tangible base to kick start the more better stuff, and Allen was just that. You can't stylize something if you don't know how you want to go about the bulk of the work, right?

But let's get into what ideas I have in mind for stylizing it:

1) cross-hatched shading: [Judas] did something like this once, but I plan on making it look more like pixel hatches than what he did, since what he did was a kind of heavy thing.

2) black outlining/anti-aliasing: I didn't want to go back to this, but I might as well anyways, just to see if others like it.

3) currently left unknown because I haven't figured it out yet.

I'll post up a poll with the experiments once I finish. Should I leave the poll for a day or two, or a week? I feel like no one will even visit the vote if I put it up...

I need an opinion on the bottom part. I tried to model it after DelusionTrim's SFV Bison sprite, but I dunno, should I go with this, make it even simpler, or just use the Melty Blood shading for Ryougi here?

EDIT: After some thought, I will go with a simplified version of Ryougi's MB shading with some minor changes shading instead. Not liking how it looks now. Expect some other fixes as well.

EDIT 2: Updated. Made a small fix to the eye positioning, hair, and changed the bottom skirt in its entirety. I think it looks better now. Will have to work on the eye to make it match with the source.

So I got my Wacom tablet three days ago (Intuos Pro Medium). And to that end, I'm doing something called 50 Wacom Ideas, which is me sketching a bunch of things, until I reach 50, while timing myself (a piece of advice I took from Feng Zhu School of Design). With this, I hope to get used to using a Wacom tablet, so that I can do more lucrative stuff with it, or for use in projects.

So have a look at the sketch 1, Lacoste Flats

Unfortunately, I didn't time myself on this one, but I think it took me maybe 10-12 minutes, though I can't be sure.

Making some progress. Nothing special atm because I want to finish one part before moving onto the other. So part one is her blue robe, then part two is animating her upper body and hair, and then refining anything.

The shadow you see running across the robe, I know ripples don't work like that, but its hard atm to do it when the rest of the animation needs to be refined, so don't worry about that atm.

Also yeah, this is Gambit inspired.

Well, most people around here might be more interested in spritework, so that might be a reason. Since you also mentioned these were merely meant for practice, they might also just wait silently until you dish out the flashy ones.

Talking about spritework, I love what you did with that one. The lighting is rea~lly nice. And those sub-pixels adding to that animation give this piece a fluid overall look. The palette is just great. Digging the blues. Good job, man.

That is both an excellent point, and a fleeting reminder that I need to redo the first batch of shitty digital paintings I ever churned out at some point.

So I got some feedback on it, and tried to change some stuff around as well:

Okay, can I call the building perspective passable? Because I don't know if my brain can handle much more redrawing and perspective shit.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: MotorRoach on November 07, 2016, 09:15:24 PM
I question how your brain is hurting from the "perspective" you applied to this, considering you missed the point of perspective entirely... and when I say point, I mean in more ways than one. You don't just distort the lines and hope it'll look cool, given that perspective has to be something consistent and has to follow at least one perspective point.

(https://userscontent2.emaze.com/images/4f8d4779-080d-49de-8fc9-cada678b218f/4b8e4414-5717-4c2e-9a19-bb7b1879d14f.jpg)

(https://hardartworker.files.wordpress.com/2011/01/2point_perspective21.jpg)

The perspective on your drawing is anything but passable. In fact, it's distracting and very jarring to look at as of now, from how random the perspective seems to be in there. When you try to connect the perspective lines, you can see that they don't go along at all:

(http://i.imgur.com/bGTBrW3.png)

Now, if you actually set a perspective point on the far right, you can actually begin to fix the building's perspective entirely:

Post by: AlexSin on November 10, 2016, 06:07:43 PM
The back muscles lines are a bit jumpy and the blur effect is not really needed in my opinion. If anything, try to redraw the frame when he stretches his arm (retrace the same frame, without moving parts), sometimes that method is useful for sub-pixel animation.
It's looking good. :)
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on November 10, 2016, 06:25:09 PM
Yeah, the back muscles I only noticed when I shrunk it down. I'm still very beginner-ish at using a Wacom, but maybe with time and more practice, it'll become a second-nature.

I'll make sure to fix all that up. And yeah, I can agree with you on the blur, it's not suitable for this animation, looking at it again.

If you haven't guessed it, then yeah, it's [E]'s request that I utterly failed to do, this time in UNiB style. Reason for the pose I gave is I wanted to make it more special for him. Seeing that I went in w/ two shitty attempts, and take this long to actually do it, I may as well do something cool.

The tablet was really useful here, I was able to at least establish scratch lineart easier than with a mouse. Most of this didn't take as long as I thought it would.

(Lienne here is more of a shading ref, but I ref'd her height for [E]'s character. And yes, I know that hands/feet need to be small too. Ironically, I drew them smaller than what I would usually do too, but woopdie doo).

The only accomplishment achieved here is that now I'm starting to actually understand the logic of rendering. Maybe lighting too. It's not the best, but I can tell you with a lot of confidence its far better than the shit I did w/o a tablet (like, a year or 2 ago).

I realized that I messed up on the lighting of the bottom, but I'll just pay more attention next time.

You're probably gonna see like 10 more of these rendering/lighting practices before I move onto something else. And just watch how the quality will change with each one.

Post by: MotorRoach on November 20, 2016, 06:30:19 AM
I feel like the lighting could look softer in that picture you made. Right now, I was put under the impression that the jar had a flat surface due to the minimal affection that the brightening is having in the middle. Everything else looks about right.

So I promised to show a small sprite at one point. Here it is. It's the youtuber, Lixian, in the outfit of his GTA V avatar.

I actually had no idea what I was going for, the only thing I know I wanted to do was exaggerate shit, like his head, because I kinda like the super deformed style in small sprites for some odd reason.

So yeah, next season, expect small sprites to be added to my repetoire.

EDIT: made my own edit that takes from the last version and likiji's edit, with other minor edits too).

I haven't given up on the digital art thing at all, I'm still working on it. I'm learning new concepts everyday, and I'm trying to apply them.

Instead of repeating myself about something I'll just quote what I said before for the arm movement:
try to redraw the frame when he stretches his arm [...], sometimes that method is useful for sub-pixel animation.
you moved it to the right (or left) without changing the other muscles' lines.
(consider this as new feedback, not as something you missed)

The back muscles shading is correct now, glad to see you fixed it. I've got a question, no SF3 shading? He's missing that shine shade on his skin.

Look at Froz's Urien.

you moved it to the right (or left) without changing the other muscles' lines.

IDGI. Yeah I moved it to the viewer's right, but what do you mean without changing the other muscles lines? The back muscles, the ones on his forearm on the outstretched arm.... what?

And what's inherently wrong with what I did? One of Akuma's punches had a similar effect in SF3 (which is what I based this off of), so explain.

I'm not trying to be an asshole here, but you need to elaborate more.
Just ignore this and read below...

EDIT: Okay wait wait, let me ask this.

Are you saying that after the little bit of stretching, the arm on the frame after it should look different than the predecessor?
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.

IDGI. Yeah I moved it to the viewer's right, but what do you mean without changing the other muscles lines? The back muscles, the ones on his forearm on the outstretched arm.... what?

What is there to ask "what"? The back muscles weren't part of that critique. Read my post, it's a new paragraph. It was even separated.
Based it on Akuma's s.SP? Not the best example you used, but whatever. I always felt like that was a bit rushed although the movement didn't start from the elbow (like in your animation), but from the torso/shoulder, so it's excusable: (http://irwt.iammanyninjas.com/images/cps3/gouki-shp.gif)
The "other muscles' lines" was intended on the same arm, I didn't say "redraw the frame completely from 0 again".. I did? Well, I didn't mean that, I should have edited my post. In this case I meant just the arm could be redrawn in those frames. Come on, read between the lines. :P (sorry, it was my fault)
I had something like this in mind:
(http://irwt.iammanyninjas.com/images/cps3/ryu-amp.gif) (ignore the blur frame)
Ryu's a.SP. Notice how the arm stretches and return to its original length without being shifted left or right a pixel or two? Of course I wouldn't like it to be applied to the same extent, just enough for the motion. If you don't care about doing it, leave it at that.

Just ignore this and read below...
Too late, I already posted, but yeah, the answer is written above and that's what I meant. Not too different, just enough to make the transition from one frame to the other smooth and consistent, like the style requires. ;)
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on November 27, 2016, 03:25:13 AM
Well to be fair, I only learned about this because Rolento mentioned it once on IRWT, with Akuma's s.SP as the example used. But fair enough.

Thanks. I'll give it a look.

Also, here's something I decided to make up on a whim and then pursue:

looks good, but doesn't he actually point his index finger to the opponent when he stretches his arm forward?
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on December 02, 2016, 05:02:04 AM
Nope. I checked the videos Froz sent me, there's no indication of him pointing a finger towards the opponent.

I should clarify that the animations will have no SF3 shading because this is how Froz wanted it. Just in case somebody doesn't know.

Thor looks fine so far, but isn't he too wide for the JJBA sprite style? I wouldn't expect him to go too far from Vanilla Ice's sprite width.

He could do with a couple of extra frames. Now that you have most of the keyframes, it shouldn't be too hard.

My other observation is that his left arm is a bit jumpy from the moment his back is towards the viewer. His legs have a few jumpy pixels as well at the point where he stretches his arm.

Other than that, it's a great animation.

It's probably going to be one right around the end, because that is the only place I can see doesn't flow smoothly. I really can't see it needing more than that.

My other observation is that his left arm is a bit jumpy from the moment his back is towards the viewer. His legs have a few jumpy pixels as well at the point where he stretches his arm.

Thanks for pointing that out. I was trying to do sub-pixellation on his legs, but I think I can do away with it entirely.

As for the left (viewer I assume) arm, the only parts I see are jumpy and non-smooth are his shoulder outlines and the hand itself, because the rest of the arm seems to be fine (or non-jumpy). That doesn't mean I won't make any edits to the rest of it (because I probably will).

I'll see what I can do about those.

His turning motion needs more smoothness. The end is pretty good, in my humble opinion.

So I decided to begin working on Urien's Anger Snap Fist. Currently, it's really bare bones stuff:

(http://imgur.com/KnrhjF8.gif)

I got the general movement down. Gonna work on this frame by frame, seeing that there is no set deadline from Froz, and I got better results that way. (although this won't always be like this, fyi).

The reason it freezes at the 5th frame is because I want to add two in betweens that have him reel back. Too bad I didn't have enough time to show that. :/

The best thing about this is that I can actually re-use frames from the taunt. Made things a lot easier.

In two weeks time, I'm going to try my hand at the MvC2 art style to prove a point. well to be fair, I need to do something in colour for once, and try not to fuck it up.

Workin on a new icon for my social media accounts. I decided to base it off of those Flash animations where the animator just shows the top part of the character when he walks for no reasons other than the funsies. Basing it off the same exaggerated small sprite style I used for Farfetch'd and the NORGIEs Crew.

That leaf is there because Sceptile Swag  :beatnik:

The style is great, I have no idea how to start a new one. And, for now I do not think that I need.
Anyway it's really nice to see something fresh.
But there's the thing that I could point out is his (?) Jaw and nape. Now it's like the cheekbone was stretched. Since it's almost a profile pose, it should be noticeable to see a little distance between the nape and the jaw. Something like this:

On the plus side, got this one done.



So some changes are gonna happen to commissions, starting the 5th next month.

-Slots are gonna be universal. Instead of slots reserved for other places, I'll be condensing them into one. Number of slots pending.

-Small sprites will be added to the commissions criterion, and CvS2 sprites are no more. CPS2 and JJBA sprites will take its place and price. The replacement for the CvS2 sprites criterion might probably be big sprites (Guilty Gear derivative, and maybe Skullgirls derivative when I get more practice).

Also, not sure how to price CPS3 single sprites, suggestions welcome. (the Urien commissions are a one time thing in regards to CPS3 animations, I won't do anymore because I can't find a feasible way to fit it into my schedule).

Discussion, and suggestions welcome.


Gonna do a digital painting freebie. Yes, you read correctly, I'm breaking my own vows of not doing anymore freebies ever again. I figured I can force myself to practice if I have to make something for someone.

5 people, first come, first served. Choice of:

- Bust
-Full body w/ pose
- Character concept art w/ expressions.

Anything that isn't awkward or disgusting is welcome. Original characters are more than welcome. Picture references are great too. First come, first served.

- Taiga Fujimura (Fate: Grand Order), full-body + pose - 100 Sad Pandas - my own choice for a pose.
- Fate (OC) , character concept art w/ expressions - Xenomic
- Jin Kazama (Tekken 4, full-body + pose - Likiji123 - TTT2 concept art pose
- Zombie Master (Yu-Gi-Oh!), full-body + pose - Whiplash - pose pending (currently: my own choice of a pose)
- Zhu-Lei (OC), full body + pose - First Lt. Ding - my own choice for a pose

Sorry for asking this but it's been in my head for a while... is there a reason why the Urien in your animation has a 16 color limit?

Anyways, other than some rough muscle lines, the animation looks good. Makes me wonder if it's for a project or something.

Because its for a CvS-ish Urien by Froz. The rough lines you see are meant to be like that, to simulate a sprite that had its color count removed in Photoshop.

IDK if I'm being clear, if I'm not, go look at the Urien sprite to the far right of that anim, or the first frame, and look at the legs and arms.

If you're doing a freebie, can I get a pose of Taiga Fujimura in her Jaguar Man uniform from Grand Order? I'll leave the pose up to you. Thanks!

Alright then, you're a numero uno then. Heads up, they won't happen until way into next month because real life.

If you don't mind my feedback, the last two or three frames could use some more movement on the body. Personally I think it's fine if the front foot goes towards the camera like you have it now.

No problem. What kind of movement should I put? More emphasis on the punching arm, torso? Legs? I'm all ears (and eyes).

And I'll keep the latter part about the legs in mind. How's the rest of it? Is the rest of the movement on a good path?

Maybe you could draw one or two transition frames, to go to the stand pose. The attack animation seems good enough, only those two last frames seem unnecessary, the ones when his fist keeps shrinking down: if you can you should remove some of them to speed the shrink effect up.

Enlighten me.

I think this tutorial suffices while I find the video one (Iced also know about what video series I am talkign about)

http://www.angryanimator.com/word/2010/11/26/animation-tutorial-1-bouncing-ball/

you see the timing chart
(http://www.angryanimator.com/tut/pic/001_bouncingball/bal10.gif)

the U means to focus the inbetween frames that are close ot the keyframes instead of spreading them evenly, you can see it being done in the chart in the 1,2,3 frames, where the timing space between 4-5 has no frames; a more normal aproach of the method would also have 2 inbetweens between 5 and 6.

3d animation packages do something similar when they generate the inbetween frames by using curves. I particularly liked that blog because the example they choose (the ball) shows the animation curves in a visual way.

[EDIT]

this is the video tutorial I mentioned earlier
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjIK_6TSX1I

though, as one of the aniamtors that worked in skill girls soe of these principles are overkill for fighting games (mostly because they might slow down the animation or get in teh way of the gameplay by other means), so you have to use them cleverly.

So many fixes are still needed for both, but I think I got the general movement down. If anything, Joe shouldn't be hard to fix, and I'll just compare each frame of Venom to similar poses in his MvC sheet.

So yeah, my homework for the week.

There's a small thing with Joe, but maybe it's just me. His pants are a big tall, maybe 2-3 pixels above to their right place(according to CvSJoe's sprite next to him) and maybe his hips could be one pixel thinnier. Venom and Urien are getting a veeery good job done :D!!

Post by: hatter on December 29, 2016, 02:18:49 AM
Well, you aren't completely wrong there. I'd say the length would be a bit different between both stances because of how the legs are positioned.

I decided to move it up a pixel, I tried w/ two, and ended up hating the result (applied to first two frames only):

The proportions are fine enough. The only thing I see is that bobbing in the abs, which I forgot to fix. <= EDIT: As of now, the frame in question has been fixed and sent to Mr. Karate JKA, I'll get to fixing the animation on my commissions thread soon enough.

So have these two quick sketches I made. I tried to do some Photoshop editing on them to make them clear, so tell me if they aren't a pain to make out please:

You should fiddle around with the 'Levels' filter in PS a bit. Increasing the input a bit should make the lines themselves stand out a bit more.

Pretty nice Arby doodle too by the by.

So I've settled on how this is gonna basically play out. The upper body/feet for the last frames, and the transition to idle will be done by me.



I was initially reluctant to show this, but I might as well:

(https://68.media.tumblr.com/425325405a8a44f7c5a062379610f642/tumblr_ojzwo9m9Xr1ut4tduo1_540.jpg)

Attempt at a 3-point perspective drawing. I'm currently preparing stuff (as in an actual portfolio) for a 3D animation program I hope to enter. So uhh yeah, this is still under heavy construction and stuff. Will change stuff here and there, but I'm content with how it is building up so far.

You'll probably see like 2 more perspective drawings for this portfolio.



As for the requests, I haven't forgotten about them, and I am still working on the first one. I plan to finish Taiga and the Venom animation at the same time. With each request, I'm dedicating it to learning something new. So e.g. with the Taiga sketch, I used it as a platform to learn about document resolution in digital paintings (and from it I realized I've been doing a lot of things wrong for 2 yrs >_<).

It's hard to see the image but from what I see that doesn't look like 3 point perspective. Can you draw me a grid interpretation of a city scape in 3 point so that I may see your process better. I want to make sure you grasp it right.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on January 19, 2017, 07:40:02 PM
Reviewing everything I did concerning perspective and that drawing, I'm going on a perspective boot camp, beginning with 1-point, working up to 3-point perspective, because I'm sick and tired of having shit everything. You aren't gonna hear from me for a long time, except if I have one of those requests to show, or a commission in progress. Going to be reading/applying everything in Ernest Norling's Perspective Made Easy until my hands and eyes bleed. Then its off to anatomy bootcamp, with Loomis, Hogarth, and Bridgman at hand. Then coloring and lighting, with Gurney, and you get what I mean.



But on another note:

(http://imgur.com/y3gS8YV.gif)

Because if you are gonna make a sprite using my favorite DBZ video game as a starting point, you might as well do it right. Or decently, at least.
(still a WIP by the way).

Alright, so 100_Sad_Pandas request is, well, done:

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

I'm gonna redo this one later on in the future, like all art I do after I learn new things. The purpose of my boot camps (which I regret now doing with the requests going on) is to relearn and retrain myself in all the fundamentals of art. And in a short amount of time.

Next requests are gonna be simplified to the core, so cel-shading lighting for example, rather than my feeble attempt at color blending.

Also, for those interested, Venom Cross is done, so check that out too (http://mugenguild.com/forum/msg.2322646)


On an unrelated note, I want to make a website of my own, but from the ground up, as I am not a fan of Wix or anything like that. Been itching to learn Wordpress, so anyone know any resources out there I can make use of? Any link/reply/advice on that is much appreciated!

I think it looks great!  ;)

This might be a bit nick picky but, I think the animation might need more weight in the punch recovery frames. When he is done throwing it like, more of follow through if that makes sense. I though i think this works good enough for the game launcher.

Either way good job!

Its actually not meant to be a launcher (I know, it looks like one), its meant to be a new s.HP.

You should do some with the standard rectangles and cubes too. Put some in the air, put some on the ground. Make some tall enough to go above the horizon line. Some of these have a few things that make me wonder if you really get it yet. But they all have enough odd ball things to justify the way they look too. Also try putting the vanish point off center on the x axis.

Post by: Just No Point on January 26, 2017, 02:43:20 AM
Well like I said there is enough to say you may get it. Questionable things include:

Pic 1: 2 paths that are correct and a cylinder in the center. Hard to judge with a cylinder.

Pic 2: left has a lot of weird angles but it's inside a house so maybe? Right more cylinders

Pic 3: shadows and buildings that don't head toward the vanishing point. The buildings in front of the center building to the right do not go above the horizon line but they go back a huge distance I think. I dunno, it looks off.

That's why I wanted to suggest just blocks. To take out the oddball stuff so what I see in those could be justified.

4 the back of the building is super wonky and doesn't follow 1 point perspective rules

Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: Just No Point on January 26, 2017, 03:09:55 AM
in 1 point you only have horizontal parallel lines. So the front and back of the top( or bottom if in air) will run perpendicular.

In 3 this is correct. In 2 and 4 it is not

What's wrong in 3 is that the lines should run diagonally toward the vanishing point for the sides of the buildings.

A tip to keep people interesting in giving feedback to help you improve. Even if you figured it out yourself it comes off like you don't appreciate the time he spent to make that. In these instances you should simply say "thank you that'll help a ton" or something.

You kinda come off like this a lot when feedback is continuing on something you're ready to move away from.

On that note, I actually made him larger than that on the first run, but most feedback I got told me he was too large. When I shortened him to this, they told me it was fine.

Not that I don't agree with you or anything, maybe if I decide to play around with it later on, I'll look into his leg length again.

I opted for two talons in place of three, since the angle I chose didn't really allow for three frontal, and the anime portrayed him with having three (two frontal, one back) talons in general.

So next two sprites in this style are a generic Shaolin Monk, and Optimus Prime. I've also been preparing stuff and notes for a custom style that I'll be putting into application for two other pixel works (HD), so expect those too.

1. Urien's anatomy is nonsensical in many places, and Capcom doesn't give a shit.
2. The U-Rule is fun (thanks [E]).
3. Urien's anatomy is stupid.

I would still recommend finishing the entire animation's lineart first, at least. It's going to be a pain in the butt if you end up stuck in a situation where you have to simply re-do a completed frame just because it doesn't quite flow correctly into one of the frames you haven't drawn yet.

I'll make sure to handle that. Just to be sure, are you talking about the part where his fist collides with the earth?

It honestly doesn't make a difference to me. I honestly dont think finishing the entire line art will help, but that's just me. I'd rather stick to what I'm comfortable with at the moment, maybe I'll switch it up for my future projects. Thanks for having my back, I do appreciate it, really.

I got his general movement down, and now its enough lolly-gagging. If I go at this two frames per day, I might get this done in 8 or 9 days. Then a day or two for fixes and what not.

So the Denjin-ish charge up is done. Only the 5 custom frames remain, and the editing of the last 3 frames before the crouch > idle so that his arm matches the position of the other ones. So one more week of Urien, and then.. SPEEDOM (and an MVP award plz).

I used those frames to avoid more drawing, because I'm not confident enough in my own drawing skills to draw new frames for Urien without making a mess out of them, plus they flowed well with the animation, right now... his back looks uncomfortably twisted in that one frame..

I honestly want to keep to what I'm using because they flow well in terms of animation and anatomy, but.... I'll think about it when I get to that final part.

For what it's worth, the supers were never meant to be seen without the fancy angles anyway so the way the character was posed might've had more to do with practicality rather than the devs intending for him to be facing a specific way (this is especially true when you see that some of the animations have the characters telepoting all over the place, which makes no sense when the camera isn't following them like it should).

I would have replied to you sooner, but at the time, my neck and back were so sore I couldn't concentrate.

I've decided to keep to what I was going with. I know that SF3 has weird anatomy and all, but.... I really don't want to draw wack anatomical poses. Plus it feels better in motion in my opinion.

So yapping aside, here's where I am with Urien:

Feel free to point out any errors you see thus far, I'm sure I missed something.

Kyo isn't as muscled as, say, Guy, Cody or Ryu. In terms of proportions he's be more in line with Sakura or Yun/Yang.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on February 13, 2017, 01:21:34 PM
I'm pretty sure that is more of a frowny "I'm determined to kick your ass face".

Also:

a bit too chubby.

Kyo isn't as muscled as, say, Guy, Cody or Ryu. In terms of proportions he's be more in line with Sakura or Yun/Yang.

Not even close. Kyo is 5'11" and weighs at about 75 kg, while Yun/Yang are 5'8" and 62 kg, and Sakura is 5'2" and 42 kg. The closest you can get to Kyo is Adon, who is taller than him by half an inch, and weighs two kilograms less than Kyo. And guess what I found when I compared upper bodies:

^ I should have (and I obviously failed to) mention that I wasn't working from his King of Fighters XIII sprite (where he actually looks kinda anime thin), but from his King of Fighters 2K2 sprites, where he didn't really look thin (at least when comparing them). So, sorry for any ensuing confusion my failure to speak up caused.

If there is something the company did "wrong" you could just fix it tbh, I also think the skin could use a bit more of contrast. Less notorious on that level of resolution I suppose.

Small details aside, pretty spot on for the style. Looks amazing
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on February 23, 2017, 03:54:29 AM
I actually did change the contrast from the last one, but I guess it wasn't enough. I'll look into it again tomorrow.

Honestly, the only thing that is spot on is the face, because I traced over the CvS2 Iori sprite, side by side with Testament. The rest are really just ripped off from CvS2 with some minor changes here and there.

the hair looks fine, a little rough here and there but overall it's a good look.

man, this portrait is looking fanfuckingtastic, nice work!

the only issue I have is with the face and how it look off-model somewhat. like the nose looks bigger than usual depictions and the mouth looks..idk.."off"

the previous rendition looked better imo
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.
Post by: hatter on March 23, 2017, 04:38:11 PM
I was told the mouth in the previous rendition was off. In this one, I actually used a proper reference (https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/9e/ed/d8/9eedd83e84231c70cebde422307e7c2f.jpg) when drawing it in, rather than what I did with the other one which was winging it entirely. Truth be told, I'm not entirely happy with it either, but I'm going to roll with it, because at this point, I don't know what other way I can fix it, and if I touch it again, I'm just going to fuck it up.

I agree with you on the face. I found a much better way to draw them in now (which came after I drew in Jin's face. Why couldn't it come any earlier? >_<), thanks to GDM, and its been netting me some nice results for once, so I'll get around to using the requests of Pandas (redux since I fucking hate what I did to his request), Ding, Whiplash, and Xenomic very soon.

Good job on the coloring, I can tell you're getting more and more proficient with whatever software you're using.

Although I gotta say, the proportions and perspective are all over the place. Hands are Tiny, Face is large and disproportionally distributed on the head space, viewer's right leg is too short, and the calf/foot are in a very awkward position.
Title: Re: Hatter's Art Vault.

Looking back at the the picture I traced over, I can agree with you on the face being a tad large. As for the rest, they seem to look decent when putting the result/photo in comparison.

I'm just gonna call it a happy accident and refine/practice my face drawing method more.

Some progress. I kinda like how Zombie Master's face looks like fuggin Gorillaz. I don't like how I handled the hair, so I'm gonna redo it. At least color/shading wise.

Not that this is important, but since I like the guy a lot, this is where I got the pose from (https://assets.audiomack.com/strange-music-inc/bac7779f03a340cf4d5743fdc7d2dd58.jpeg).

Post by: hatter on April 25, 2017, 01:07:01 AM
Thank you, thank you.



I realized today that I could easily fix the problem I had with Zombie Master's hair through editing the saturation. So in other words, a few Wacom pen strokes later, it all worked out.

I also decided to stop being a yellow-belly, and go back and redo what needs to be redone:

(http://imgur.com/qqj1lkQ.png)

I think its already clear which is the better one, but yeah, here's a proper CPS2 styled Tifa, now with obvious referencing of Sakura/Karin.

Asura's gonna get a similar redux (I already redid the face on his completed animations), but its not gonna be as extensive as this. Just his arms/legs (the golden portions), and fix any color scheme mistakes I probably made, not to mention make him bigger as well.

So yeah in other words, I'm gonna finish Asura's movement animations before Tifa's, what an unsurprising twist of events.

Wowza, the eye painting looks really cool, and the second drawing, with the perspective on the giant is really top notch.

Looks really good so far, my dude.

Sure, but it'll have to wait until Thursday the 29th to talk about it, I'm kind of trying to finish up a really important real-life task.

I'll talk with you about it then.

Ding: Thanks, I'm fond of the perspective as well. It's the first time I ever do something with my own characters. Hope to get it done eventually.

I would have answered you earlier Ned, but by the time you asked I was fast asleep. And by the time I saw it, I was at work.

Anyways, the links above detail the Grayscale method, but I differed in my approach in three things:

1) Scaling to 200% (rather than 500%)
2) Using the Bicubic Sharper interpolation when downsizing (he used Billinear)
3) Using a Posterize adjustment layer at 4 colors rather than using Index mode. (useful tip courtesy of balmsold).

for photoshop, to sizeup drawing or pixelart I use "alienskin blowup" addon plugin, it has Much better scaling algorithm than anything photoshop has to offer.

Redid her face and played around w/ the size. It's about as close as I can get to the model's face. Everything in red is what else I need to fix.

Shouod be done by the end of the next week.

Just a little note: her face isn't supposed to face the screen directly, it actually tilts to the side a little bit.

I worked off of Likiji's sprite (thanks bud :]). I chose to simplify certain things, but so far how does this look?

I have a good idea about how I should animate this, but I'm probably going to die in the process. T_T

I would also make him hold the keyblade a bit lower to the ground, like he does in the games. Right now it kinda looks like he's leaning forward a bit strangely.

Commission crud. It's Noel Vermillion from BlazBlue in SSF2 style. Link by StevenB, used for style reference, first of 8 (or 9) sprites that will be done in this style (same character for all).

Hmmmm, that doesnt really feel "ssf2" to me
she looks way to tall, eyes dont seem to be ssf2ish
i think there is too much of the legs aswell
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: hatter on August 19, 2017, 06:19:35 PM
^ taking that into account, I changed the face to match w/ Link's. Legs are going to stay as they are though:

If you keep the legs the same it'll be way bigger than the average ssf2 sprite which isn't really being accurate

Zemilia was fine with the legs the way they are, so whether it is or isn't, legs are staying as is.

If you're wondering about the gun-fire FX in the 2nd one, well, me and Zemilia talked about it and this is kind of the FX he wanted (blurry af, but you should still be able to see it):

(https://i.imgur.com/7pFmasR.png) a street fighter 2 image;       
 (http://imgur.com/SXyhKuh.png) whatever this is.

You cant call that SSF2 by any means. The shading, the blue thing that looks like some sort of giant finger.
Also, WalursLuis may actually have a point  for once, and I believe he is getting better too. But you on the other hand.  So basically you don't give a shit, and don't bother trying. , Ok so  Zemilia  is cool with it, but for a commissioned work that is weak, by no means that is SSF2 "style".  Your sprite is ok, but your attitude sticks out like a sore potato.   If I had to give a recommendation for a commissioner, its certainly not you.  :kugoi:

SSF2 stands for Super Smash Flash 2 you nimrod.
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: PlasmoidThunder on September 07, 2017, 10:40:24 PM
To be fair it can mean both, and it's certainly more commonly associated with Streets. Easy to get confused.

That doesn't excuse the snarky post though.
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: hatter on September 07, 2017, 10:51:19 PM
Alright, point taken there. I'd at least have thought that Steven's Link sprite would indicate what kind of sprite it is, but hey, I guess I was wrong there as well.
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: likiji123 on September 08, 2017, 10:19:48 AM
Yea, Many people do mistake it for Super Street Fighter 2
To the point where i make jokes outta it
If I had to give a recommendation for a commissioner, its certainly not you.
I get that you might be angry cause you thought it was Street fighter and not Smash Flash, but saying something like that is rather dickish, like one quick google search for "SSF2" and all you will see is super smash flash 2

It was already brought to my attention that this sprite is bigger than most CPS2 sprites (yes it was bigger than Juggernaut @_@) but I'm not going to rescale it, bc at this point, its going to ruin everything.

That being said.... is there anything I should be made aware of in terms of, well, anything related to this sprite? I'm using Pin and Scrollboss' sprites as references.

EDIT: If you're wondering to yourself, how did he even mess up the scale like that?, well its because I didn't use my brain and resized to this and made it bigger by a sinch (https://orig12.deviantart.net/93ee/f/2017/213/3/9/abigail___sfa_style_by_pixel_m-dbig22v.png) rather than resize according to, oh I don't know Ryu or T.Hawk or something. -___-

References are your friend, yeah. Mine were the CvS renditions of Maki, King, Yuri and Hibiki.

Though I think I fucked up the length of her right (viewer) arm. Looking back, it should've been a midway between yours and mines; or maybe its alright, idhk

Glad you like them, thanks for making the sprite. I'm a fan of Mirror's Edge myself. :yes:

I learned new things, got pissed off, learned new things. Maybe next year will be kinder to me.

EDIT: I just realized I posted the wrong Balluun Boy sprite (it was an earlier one before I added in hands). I guess its too late to change that, lmao.

The preview's actually for the bottom one, not the top. The Rogue flight stance is done at the moment. (though I do somewhat agree with your idea about both normal stances looking alike).

Batman kinda follows along with what I usually do with Super Smash Flash 2's style (I do a bit of anti-aliasing here and there), Joker is me trying to adhere to the whole no anti-aliasing in SSF2's style.

Post by: !E on January 20, 2018, 11:59:40 PM
Just a little suggestion, in photoshop you can open multiple window of the same file that you're working on.
On the top menu go to Window>Arrange>New Window for "your image name here"

This way you don't have to constantly zoom out to see your sprite result because you will have 1 window for preview while you work on the other window.

The reason I'm suggesting this is because it's a headache to watch speed video that zoom in and out, I used to make video this way and its hard to watch.

The image below will explain itself.
In this example I open 3 windows for zeku.
(https://i.imgur.com/3DnrDFT.gif)

you can see here in one of my video beginning at 12 sec. this way my viewer can see the result on the bottom right if they dont' want to look at the left side where I'm constantly zooming.
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: hatter on January 21, 2018, 12:03:15 AM
I've actually been trying to figure out how to do that for a while, never thought it'd be that easy. Thanks for sharing it, I'll try it out the next time I do one of these.

Well, you are correct, and since you're the only person that seems remotely interested, here:

I'm sure you can guess who the other two are.
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: Xenomic on January 31, 2018, 11:03:33 PM
I couldn't guess who those other two are at all myself. Are they from the same game as those two...things? o.o?
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: hatter on February 01, 2018, 12:15:04 AM
They arent from Cuphead, no.

One of em is from an indie RPG in-progress and the other from a 3D platformer (also indie).

Looking at the original Cuphead sprites, it seems I made the shorts a bit too tall (turns out they are a tad shorter than what I did).
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: Long John Killer on February 01, 2018, 12:42:15 AM
Something about transitioning the Cuphead characters from their rubber hose aesthetic to something a bit more realistic just makes them not look right.  I think it's the jagged pixels surrounding their mouths are more noticeable than the edges of their bodies.  I mean, they're good sprites, but it's awkward to look at at the same time?  If that makes any sense?

Hat Girl can't not be adorable, so I look forward to how she turns out, though!
Title: Re: Hatter's Stuff.
Post by: hatter on February 01, 2018, 12:51:33 AM
I can agree with what you are saying. I guess there's no way around it. Or maybe there is and I'm oblivious to it.

Post by: hatter on February 06, 2018, 02:54:09 AM
It is difficult, but seeing I got this far means it's mostly possible.

I haven't seen it tbh, does he have a new design (and is it Shinryu or Shinryu Verus)? If you could PM it to me, I'd appreciate it.

And here are two animations for something I'm working on in my spare time: (https://imgur.com/JLyNJK8.gif) (https://imgur.com/1TatUHM.gif)

I love that Misty animation except for one thing; the lack of a transitional frame or so between when her kick ends and she falls is rather noticeable.  Possibly less so if the animation is played more quickly in-game, but I'm not sure.  More frames might be nice, to show her lowering her legs for the landing.

I had that thought of that in my first draft. I can definitely put one in when I make an air version of that move.

Interesting; in what ways would an air version differ?

Not much, it would have slightly edited start up frames to make it seem like she's doing the kick from the air. At least that's what I understood from Wammy's description of the Dragonair air kick. Think of it as the difference between a Shoryuken and an Air Shoryuken in the MvC series.



While I am at it, have some digital art:

The bottom two are things I did for #drawitinyourstyle on Twitter/Instagram. The first character is for Din the Abary, the creator of "Deadly Metropolis". Second one is one of Diepod's characters.

I personally like how colorful they are, but in the case of Monolith, I don't like how the head came out. It feels too wide, and the cheek bones/eyes don't feel very well-aligned (one eye feels bigger than the other). I'd say its because I didn't start with a geometric sketch and play around with the space he should occupy. Gotta remember to do that for the next time.

Man, what happened to Hulk's run...?

^This looked great. You can see the power and aggression/weight in this run. The finished one you have there though looks more like a brisk jog... :-\ I mean, it's not bad, but the original concept you had was so much better.

Well, that looks really nice, even though the eye is kinda attached to "inconsistent" contour on her shoulders, shorts ner her viewer's left hand and a disappearing pixel in her tail. Good job.

Is that a Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee reference?  I'll accept that...in this case.  But to anyone reading, that doesn't mean I want bullshit like Eevee not evolving to become a regular thing!

Edit: Also, does the hurt animation still need finishing?

latest things I've drawn.

I haven't done any pixel art in a while, so no there isn't anything to show for that; really have had zero motivation to make sprites in general, digital painting is what takes up 99% of my time these days. Slowly creeping back into it by working on animations for a Z2i project, and Neocide's DBZ All-Stars game.

Oh and there's this:
