Moz's journey into spriting

Recommended Posts

so, I'v recently begun making hacks, it's going well so far due to all the infrastructure people have put in place to teach newbs like yours truly, anyhow this thread is to post any sprites or mugs I make and receive critique.

well here goes:

1: Shaman with a turban

a shaman who will join us fairly early, he has the calm, content expression due to seeing into the depths of dark magic and as such he's not easily surprised anymore. he lost his left eye as a sacrifice for his personal dark magic spell (he has a personal weapon like rapier etc)

self critique, I'd probably need to learn much more about shadows due to the turban not casting a shadow over his face.

2:fem shaman or troubadour that learns dark magic upon promotion. ^that shaman's apostle.

6Zn2yBA.png updated version -> qUbO1XC.png

she will join us either early as a healer or later if she ends up a second shaman(since the guy's stats are growths are very unbalanced)

a very simple splice, mainly ursula with a recolour and niime's hat thingy - extended.

3: female mercenary

she will join early-midgame. a bit of a tomboy, she has like a wrapped scarf thing around her neck and a sleeveless blue undershirt.

my most custom mug yet, I made most of the shoulderpad and spliced together stuff from 6 characters.

4:Older soldier

396hCvZ.png

he will join earlygame, when the lord's lands were attacked and his forces decimated, he's found along with another surviving archer carrying out guerrilla warfare vs. the invading army, he's mainly a splice with a bit of age lines added to show that he's seen better days. he's pretty much a generic soldier given time in the spotlight.

5:Lone rampaging wyvern knight

http://imgur.com/ndGvPRa,396hCvZ#0

he will join midgame, he's the eldest son of a family of wyvern knights who have been going for a long time, his family were killed by assassins for political reasons, he swore vengeance on the nation who ordered it. he's found surrounded, fighting in a blind fury in his lust for revenge on his family's killers.

he's mainly gale with different armor and a nice cloth scarf to clean the blood of his lance with.

6: Seafaring swordsman from the east.

he will join midgame, he's a swordsman that comes from a nomadic people's but unlike his tribe he feels most at home at sea, the enemy army take over the port where the ship he's on is anchored, they seize it and he joins the party to get back at them.

was a saleh / lloyd splice with a little recolouring, nothing fancy.

7. Veteran archer, found along with older soldier, trying to fight back after surviving their army's massacre.

he's a splice of Dieck's face, Linus' hair and Puzon's body

he joins earlygame, along with the soldier, I think having older characters allows for more intresting personalities, also lets them have children etc to recruit further on in the game.

8. Cocky, young adult mage prodigy, seeks out turban shaman guy due to his past accomplishments as a mage, before he lost the power to control anima.

I feel out of all my units this one's personality in conveyed most strongly through his expression.

I feel maybe I went a bit too black / white grey with this dude and maybe I should give him more colours, im open to suggestions as always.

splice of Jahn's head / chest and renault's small shoulerpadcloth thingy, along with edited brown collars over the shirt.

9. Bloodthirsty axeman, crazed and ruthless, won't ruin his story by saying how he joins (BEING REDONE).

http://imgur.com/AURfaTj

AURfaTj.png<- low quality, working on remaking.

each part of the face is from a different sprite, same with the hair, the body is still just diek's but to be fair I felt I was already pushing it with this and I wasn't sure if it looks ok or not.

9.5 Bloodthirsty axeman v2.

an attempt to improve over the last version. still considering changing it again.

10. Poor wannabe armor knight bandit guy, once his village was saved a mighty armor knight of the realm, thats where his dream began...

http://imgur.com/UlmNwjl

and with his shoddy half broken armor is where it's gona end, the only armor knight I have planned for this game and thankfully he's not as boring as the rest, he's pretty quick and stuff but his def isn't great, which y'know makes sense since his armor is like falling apart

.his face is like a mix of 5 faces, hair is lowen's, body armor is a big mix.

11. Hippie zealot nomad, he joins cus the nation that messed up MC's castle/people is against his hippie standards,

http://imgur.com/d2B2fnA

d2B2fnA.png

this guy was a splice of about 4-5 facial features, roland's body recoloured and mini head + icon thing. he's all about dat resistance, anti magic nomad on the scene.

12. The sad dude, suffering existential crisis, in anguish. lacks will and does stuff just because he's really conformist.

http://imgur.com/fqesi1i

he's a mix of facial features from FE8 baddies along with the base of a FE7 baddie non boss, custome'd his face so he covers his chin with the underside of his bandana rag thingy.

Pretty simple overall, but it looks pretty smooth. The part that hangs off the back of the turban looks a bit odd, like it has a chunk out of it. As you say the turban doesn't have any shading on his face, but you should just be able to copy the shading from Nergal. Also, you can imbed images in a comment with the image button in the comment toolbar.

need help with this sprite, I somehow need to get it's palette down to 16 colours, requantize makes it look really messed up, any tips? (also any tips for the mug itself, this is WIP and can easily be changed)

All of your sprites' faces are the same as the base sprites they came from so the rest of the design suffers. Use facial features from different characters

u used both fe8 and fe7 colours. the outlines clash. also u haven't shaded under the various parts, so they still feel spliced together and don't blend

aight, from now on newer work will both be posted in a new post and added to the original post, as for the colour selection I'll be fixing that when I start actively inserting mugs into my hack, atm working full time so I only sprite in the evening. I think when I'm finished with work and have more free time to focus on the hack I'll go over all my mugs and improve them since I've been learning as I go along.

thanks for all the feedback guys!
