Early wip!



It's the fourth one, flipped vertically. Hope that's ok? :/
*edit* transparency is going to be tricky here, I might want to reconsider :D

Here was my first idea:
Also based on
Was the only sprite of the four that didn't immediately make me think of a robot...
Will probably change the coloring a bit, and animate it. Maybe make the hands smaller...

Looks like too much pixelling and too many colors. Less is often more.

Thanks.
Palette cluttering is my problem and I don't realy know how to deal with it.

Tried my best to get rid of "overpixeling".
Now the wings are too boring.
And now I feel I am loosing the connection between this piece and the source sprite.

Palettes are a process in pixelart to work out and everyone has their own way. For some, pixelling in greyscale and then coloring/palette development has been a good teaching tool and a great way to learn to declutter their palettes since pixelling in greyscale first is all a focus on definition, contrast and clustering thus allowing that only the bare minimum colors are used.
