A character sketch for a rouge like game I will probably make. Took me almost a week to finish this. Will make a mockup then a spritesheet for this character when I have time.

Thanks to everyone who helped in the WIP thread.

Very nice. Lines, detail, concept, warmth... Hah, I repeat myself.

Will animate a 32 x 32 top down sprite. I will not animate somethign this big, but still possible.

Wow! Awesome! Is her staff a lighter?

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/16/2014 06:09

You're going to animate this? Even the idea of that task frightens me...

Rainpowtato (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/15/2014 08:58

Is... awesome, beautiful, badass, cute and epic at the same time xDD. I realy love the fantasy atmosphere of your style, the colors, the weapons and the clothers <3.

She is Beautiful!)

So much awesome about this; love the palette and simple coloring, stance, and her weapons are cool as all hell. I like the stance, it looks very confident and strong, and the shield may not look realistic but it does look rad. Matches the staff, too.

Complete and utter lack of a nose is bugging me tho.

AshCrimson (Level 4 Deputy) @ 7/11/2014 10:08

Really loving the palette on this

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/11/2014 08:40

lovin ur stuff

andrae (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/11/2014 04:45

I'm very thankful for the comment. You are right, the design was very complex, to translate it to a small sprite I have to remove some details and retain only those I think are major features. The shield and the staff will not be visible since including it will add a more workload for me.

I might update this piece :)

[oh how I hate it when, my browser messes up, when you've almost finished writing a massive comment >; *tries to shorten* ]

Very clean lines and clusters, the Design is really neat, and complex -> beware to not make the sprite too overdetailed, because the initial design has so much of it! Also, I am not sure how many frames she will potentialy have, but sprite size is a considerable factor.

(more) Asymetric shadowing on her torso and cloth will probably boost the overall plasticy quite a bit.

Appart from the stance, that was mentioned, there's a few odd spots in anatomy ( most of which I know just to painfully well myself ):

Her upper arms seem a bit too long. 2-4 less pixels in length would help to bring the hand/hip ratio into a more harmonic ratio.

a clear indication of ankles can help a lot to make skewed/cartoon anatomy a lot more believable.

the shield could work a lot "better" if it had a proper grip and strapping. Medieval shields usually had a rigid handle, and leather straps attached to hold the shield fixated to the lower arm.

and, I rather stop here before my browser decides to eat my message for w.e. reason. Really nice design though. Looking forward to that animated version. :)

andrae (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/10/2014 22:55

Thanks, I just noticed it too. I'll practice more on that next time. For the contraption on the her right hand, I was planning to place a shield there but,  I cant get it right so I ended up putting some madeup something there. At the end it seems like it is not being worn.

felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/10/2014 22:38

Really nice, pehaps the stance is a little too wide (looks a bit uncomfortable) and I'm unsure of the contraption that is being held in the (our) right hand.

Meapers (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 7/10/2014 19:11

Pretty sweet
