Not sure how many are greatly interested in seeing this, but here is more with regards my sprite work! My friend, ~t0ms0nic
randomly challenged my ability to still be able to sprite (since I don't sprite as frequently as I used to), so to defend my pride and prove my worth I quickly went about making this! I'm really surprised at how well this turned out! Normally I would probably just tack this onto my Expanse Style compilation sheet that I posted a little while back, but I decided to experiment and see what kind of reception I'd get from an individual sprite display!
Anyways, to start things off with getting back into routine spriting, I have sprited my character, Proj the Echidna! This sprite didn't take me long at all to do surprisingly (normally I take foreeever with a sprite, though mostly due to constant tweaking and perfectionism; I seem to be past that now). I already had a Tikal sprite made from a while back which I used as a basis, and I borrowed the palette from my Maria's sprite's clothes to translate over to Proj, since they share the same form of attire as per her storyline. For me, the hardest part about spriting is limiting the number of colours after a sprite is made. When I finished the base sprite, I had about 20 colours in her palette, and I needed to bring that down to a clean 16 (15 + bg), so that was a bit time-consuming. Overall she was quite easy to sprite, this took about half an hour all up tops to make. Oh yeah, and her freckles were crazy difficult to fit in in pixel format as well, so hopefully they look alright!
Hopefully the display I've come up with here is also appealing! Got the palette up in the corner to show how many colours are used, got some 200% blown up sprites to look at so you don't have to zoom in for the lazy folk, and at the bottom I've gone about adding a fragment of the height chart I mentioned I used in my other deviations, to show how I try to get my accurate heights for characters. So I have Maria (140cm), Shadow (100cm) and Tikal (95cm) here along with Proj (95cm) for visual comparison. Anyways, enjoy!
As per my previous sprite submission: It would be much appreciated if people do not touch my sprites or work with them in any way
. Thank you.
