Sprites for a prototype i started... probably a lifetime project... Color palette by Arne Niklas Jansson.
New version. Worked on all the issues mentioned. Thanks for the comments everyone.
Hah, it looks cool, indeed. Nice work!
Love the personality you've captured at this scale!
I dig it man : )
The animations are great! But when the rotating one turns sideways the hood pops upward. Not that noticable, but I thought I'd point it out.
Love it! Managed to get a lot of detail in a tiny sprite :)
Great little sprites!
Tiny and… perfect. Nothing to change for me. Keep your style ;)
I love your style!
His shade should be moving along with him . If he is rotating then so should his shade . Still , nice look sprites , inspiration is going through my vains ! (sry for bad english)
Yeah you're right... the Game I made this for is actually straight top down with characters sideways for better readability, kind of like the 2D Zelda games. The slash effect that I use in game is also top down but I dont have interesting backgrounds yet to post, and without that context it just looked wierd so I fixed this up quickly with a side view slash... but in hindsight I probably should have optimized the whole sprite for side view. I'll try to find time to fix it.
Thanks for the critique.
simple and good
nice sprites and animations.
From a gameplay perspective, his sword doesnt seem to have much range. You can remedy this by giving him some shoulder rotation.
