He kinda reminds me of a Danganronpa character with the hairstyle and colour choices. Cool stuff!! I love trying to work out the sprites used in a frankensprite, but for the face I can't tell! Awesome work!

Just so we're clear, is it HIS right arm, or the arm on the right from our perspective (i.e. his left arm)?

Because I thought the left arm looked kinda weird (it's scratch-sprited), and edited it a lot to try and make it work.

Sure. First off, I highly recommend using Paint.net to create your sprites, and GIMP to animate them. While you can technically use regular MS Paint, GIMP, or Photoshop to make sprites, using MS Paint is like trying to cut a steak with a butterknife, whereas GIMP and Photoshop are like using a meat cleaver. PDN gives you the exact set of tools you need and nothing else. The only thing it doesn't do that you need is animation, hence GIMP.

Here's a step by step breakdown of my usual method.

Spoiler:
Start off with a base.
Image

We'll be using this head for the base sprite.
Image

Next, remove the face and any other unneccessary details.
Image

Then, select some other bases that have compatible facial features.
ImageImageImageImage

Now I've taken Drew's hair, Will's eyes, Valant's nose, and Eldoon's mouth, and added them to our base.
Image

Next, I recolour the extra parts to match the base (or sometimes vice-versa).
Image

Once that's done, I add extra details - outlines, extra layers of shade, all things to make it mesh together.
Image

Now that the head is done, time to pick a body.
Image

As with the face, we need to remove unique details.
Image

Now to find the pieces to fill the gaps.

ImageImage

Then combine them in:
Image

Now to match the colours and details. It's good to try and change little details to deviate it from your base, as clothes can look quite samey.
Image

Next, a recolour, since this quite obviously still resembles its base too much.
Image

Finally, put the pieces together and add details to merge.

Do you have a thread for your Kristoph game? Or is it too early in development for that?

It's actually mostly done, but I've been stuck at an impasse for a while with the final testimony. Has to all work in a certain order. Was a lot easier in its original comic form where interactivity wasn't a factor, so converting that same plot into something the player can unravel themselves is a nightmare.

That, and revamping the sprites. For example:

Yeah. Needed doing.

Interesting. That part wasn't really edited from its base, so maybe it's a perspective issue. Will work on that before I do the rest of the set.

Ladies and Gantlemen, welcome the father of Kristoph and Klavier Gavin... Kurtis Gavin!



For reference, the old version:
Image


For reference, an even older version:
Image

Father of the Gavin brothers, and head of the Gavin & Co. Law Offices during the events of Kristoph Gavin: Ace Attorney. An avid painter and enthusiast of the arts, a trivia buff, and an all-round nice guy (sometimes too much for his own good).

This was actually one of my earliest OCs, dating back to before I even played the Ace Attorney series. He was obviously quite different at first - he wasn't a Gavin, for one (his original name was Curtis Lycinder). And of course, he didn't sport the Gavin drills. He was originally in a fantasy series that was essentially a ripoff of Harry Potter mixed with Final Fantasy elements. It was terrible, but some of my early character concepts have come with me, and Kurtis is one.

In this remake I strove to make him as distinct as possible from the other two Gavins whilst still making him strikingly similar. The addition of purple to his palette (a different shade to his sons) to keep him more thematically in line was used. I also gave him a bowtie to make him a little more distinct from his body base (Apollo). Effort was also made to make him noticably taller and more imposing than his sons. Besides changing details of the face (originally Kristoph's with elements of Klavier added), I also changed his skin tone and made his hair neater than his sons. I'd like to think I did a pretty good job establishing his design as his own whilst still making him plausibly canon.

My life has been chaos for most of the last 5 months, but everything is relatively settled now and I finally have time to sprite again.

Finished another pose for my Kristoph revamp... which apparently I never posted the first pose for, so I guess here's that too.

Trying to make them as accurate as possible to the rest of his canon sets.

Thanks guys. Base took absolutely ages, used the same Phoenix + Edgeworth base combo I did for my first version back in like 2009, but this time I downscaled the HD sprites to DS size, and then traced over it with Kristoph's palette.

Besides Klavier's head (obviously) everything else is scratched to match.

Anyway I was on a roll and wanted to take advantage of my spriting mood, so here's another pose.

ImageImage

With any luck I can ride this impulse to having a decent number of poses done.

That was not fun to create. There wasn't a single Klavier head pose that was even vaguely at the same angle as Kristoph's smiling pose, so I had to rotate Klavier's objection sprite 27.5 degrees, and then trace over it because of the antialiasing.
