Hello, everybody!

I decided I shouldn't be so cowardly, so I share my sprites here, too! There rules are, quote:
"Anything you can use will be marked as 'usable', as well as if it needs credit or not. No need to ask for permission unless otherwise stated. PM me your finished case if you use anything from here."

Retro Redux Competition entry:

"Linday Zin is a shy woman of the 60's (I hope, at least). While she follows the fashion trends, she does so only to blend in with the crowd. However, she recently got herself involved into showing the fashion of the era to the world. She is ready, as you can see, but she can't really hide her anxiety (that smile of hers is clearly forced)."

From what I searched, Linday means "gentle", or "soft", and Zin means "a flower". Also, "day" and "zi" sound like "Daisy" (no, they wont say "Hi, I'm Daisy!", I mean the flower.)

Nice stuff!

I like Isaac's sprites, though I feel it looks a bit weird with his bangs reaching his mouth :-P

The glowing badge and report are also cool!

Thank you!

You think? After I made his first pose back in... a day, some weeks later, a friend of mine had the same hairstyle, only a little bit shorter :maya-shock: . Besides, if you look closely, you can see why he needs an enormous fringe :angel:

These were supposed to be used by aliens in a case that I never got to make, that's why they're glowing.

Also, I realized that I hadn't included my AAO competition entry when making this thread, so check the OP for that! (It's under "Misc.")

Here comes an update!

Image

Isaac was so shocked to find out I made his shocked pose, as you can see. This pose was a pain, because of the way they used the colors for Nick's suit, and because it has two versions. (Spoilers for space):
Spoiler: Animations
Taken Aback:
Image Image Image Image
Shocked(/Scared?):
Image Image Image Image

I should also note that from tomorrow, I'm gonna have very little internet access (fortunately, I've got data) for a period of time (a month and a half, maybe) so don't be SHOCKED (ok, ok, save your boo-ing for later) if I don't post anything.

Oh, and please, mention any flaws you may find in a month. I'm not touching this pose before then. I'm mentally exhausted from it. :yummy:

SO... I became really...
Image
...annoyed, because I had to update EVERY. SINGLE. ANIMATION. because I made his tie darker :sideglance2:. Anyway, as you just saw, Isaac's new pose is his annoyed one. I also updated his Taken Aback/Shocked one to make his wrist look more normal-sized.

As a bonus, I added Sahwit's Toupee throw to give the illusion I've been working hard as a startup of this animation. Hope you enjoy, I made everything in a lag-driven laptop. My limits were tested.

EDIT: Just a small lighting fix, pay it no mind. Hehe :sahwit:

Wow, these sprites are actually very nice! Two things I absolutely LOVE about them are their fluency and your attention to detail. I really enjoy how Isaac's shadows actually move with him as he moves his head around. Very well done, I say! The only thing that I can say for future characters/sprites, is to try and make his hands a bit larger. The hands you have there are a bit small for a person of his size. (Don't worry, I also understand your pain of editing each and every frame of a sprite just to fix ONE error. It's tedious, but worth it, lol.) Thank you for sharing your sprites with us all to see! I hope to see more of them in the future. Keep going and never give up!

Thank you! People appreciating my work means a lot to me :larry2:

When studying Phoenix's sprites to see how I would make him, I did notice the shadow wasn't moving on him, and I would have done that myself... but then, I saw a gem like this:
Image
and was like, "no way, it's better to recolor some pixels"... which reminds me, I just noticed two poses don't have moving a shadow. I'll fix that with the next pose

And, yeah, I'm not that good with anatomy :payne: I know the hand looks small, because I had compared it to his thinking pose.
Spoiler: Comparison
Image
"Wh-Why are my hands floating in front of me?!"
But I took the easy fix of "it's angled towards the player" because I was lazy :sahwit: . I suppose making it larger won't hurt, though.

And, lastly, of course I'm not stopping now! I wanna keep getting better and better.


EDIT:So... I just saw some portions of the thread got photobucket'd. I'll work on it tomorrow, probably. Sorry if you didn't manage to see what's in there, you'll have to wait a bit!

You're very welcome! Glad to always see artists willing to keep improving their trade. Yeah, Phoenix's sprites' shadows don't always move on him, but what do we want from a game that came from the GBA to the DS? The fact that you took the initiative means a whole lot (at least to me).

No worries if you're not good with anatomy yet as well. We all start somewhere. As long as you understand you can improve and where you should focus that improvement, it goes a long way. I always see things wrong with how I do my stuff and I'm like: "Ohhhh boy! More practice for me." References of all kinds are also very helpful--pictures, statues, your own reflection (in the mirror), magazines, etc.

Also, no worries! I was able to see what was in there. The floating hands comment made me laugh a bit, lol. But I definitely see what you mean. Do what works for you for now and bit by bit (if you want) you can start trying new things to improve yourself. One thing I've learned as an artist is to learn when to leave your comfort zone to improve your art. It may not seem like it does much in the moment, but it certainly proves to be most fruitful in the long run.

I hope some of this helps and that you have a nice night/day. Happy Spriting! :athena:

Yeah, it does!

I actually am aware of most of them myself. But I have the bad habit of finding excuses for the flaws, and fix them only if I don't find one :payne: . A bad trait to have, but...

Anyways, as I said, I'm not letting anything stop me, and people liking my works gives me motive to just keep going!

I didn't find a rule for double-posts, but it's legal, I guess.

The photobucket links have been updated! Sorry if you tried to see what was in the sections that got affected, people, not my fault :angel:

Hooray, an update!

I'm working on something else right now, so I can't work on Isaac sadly, so have some Ema edits I did ages ago instead (talking versions in the OP):

Image Image Image

What are those, you ask? Ema is... well... flirting. It's not for my case, alright? But I got the OK for the one who needed them.

She looks like she's practising in the mirror for her big date with Fin Gerprintpowder.

I shall save you all from wasting energy to reply, and give my final answer:

It's... *drumroll*... Klavier!
ok, seriously, it's not Klavier. So keep speculating, someone is bound to find the correct answer... eventually :karma:

I'm guessing the sprites are for the Apollo dating sim that's currently being worked on?

Or maybe she's just looking at Edgeworth cosplaying as the Steel Samurai, I dunno.

I think I've seen photoshopped versions of that, actually. He pulls it off pretty well
