Hello all!

This would be my 3rd entry to PJ. I'm currently programming a platformer engine in straight C with the allegro.h library for which I will soon require to make sprites for my character and tiles etc. I beleive I managed to sprite something decent! (maybe?)

Note that the effort was not put upon the small platform, and that the color count on the character only is 8. I'm trying to restrict my color usage as much as possible.

Anyway, crits and comments highly encouraged! Thanks.

Then it is settled! the next PA I shall do will be a mockup! Might take a while though, since I'm in exam period at the moment... Thanks for all the great advice guys!

Well the least you can do is make a mockup :)

if your going to be using this for darker backgrounds then uding lighter toned colors will be the way to go.

the face, arms and platforms seem to be fine its more the hat and his overalls and legs that need work

Thanks, that confirms that I might have to revise my color usage if I find no other solution. Funny though, I'm not fully decided on what this game's theme will be so this may end up being scraped for something else entirely depending on the situation... Still good practice though!

i really like this so far. but like they said it doesn't stand out from the black background. if it did stand out from it i wouldn't have any complaints.

I probably need to find a better background color, and I can probably get the colors on the character down to 6 without compromising to much elements. I can also play with the character's palette a little bit to see if I can find a better color arrangement. Thanks for the reply!

I can hardly make the the character out, as it contrasts to well with the black background. 8 colours on that! You could easily cut that down!
