This is Aki the main character of a game idea, that I had in mind for a long time. It's the same character from a mockup I did some time ago.

I actualy have a remake of the mockup in PSP-resolution in the works, but I won't have time to finish it at the moment.Because the Sprite itself is done, I'm submitting the sprite alone.

Got way to many colors, but meh~.

EDIT: placed detail picture on darker BG

thanks for pointing that out, Adarias. I changed the background-color for the detail-sprite.

I've been using "evil selout" for too long... It's hard for me not to do it.

here you have a beautiful sprite made obnoxious by what really falls into the category of "evil selout" (not the good kind at all).  if it's made only for dark, please place on dark.  This light background brings it from fantastic to mediocre in no time flat.

Looking nice. However, that part of the hair near the left looks cut off or something?

Currently, I only have one personal project, That being Havoc Zone. ( and a present project, for my girlfriend... but that won't be released anywhere ) I have many other Ideas, but I won't work on any of those until HZ is finished.

Thanx for answers.
1. For me personally it is always interesting to look how work is made - starting points, rejected and alternate variants, sketches on the sides of canvas and such. Checked Photobucket, there also are some variants of this particular pic.
2. One project as I understand is Havoc Zone which grew out of PC beta. What is available on another project?
OK, I stop spamming here. :)

da sexy sprite.

I might do an idle animation at some point. But currently, I'm stuffed with work on Havoc Zone...

about the questions:
1. Currently there is no real place for WIPs, though there are some WIP-steps on variouse pixels at my Photobucket-account.
I might add a WIP-gif to some further works, if the demand is there, although I normaly don't save inbetween steps.

2. No, I don't have a page atm. And also, my professional pixel-career just started a few month ago - the first products, 2 NDS titles, where I did graphics for will be aviable around April next year.

*Be the first one on your block to fave fresh Squirrelsquid's pic.* It's great! I like figure, face, colors and rendering of the suit most plus how her right hand (right to her, not to viewer) worked out. I have two questions, however:
1. Is there place where one can look at any WIPs, do you generally have intention to show them?
2. Do you have any page about games you did graphics for?
