Indy sprite

Any paintover of this is welcome, provided it doesn't change the character's height (the eyes must not be moved up or down) or style (don't turn it into cartoony style).
I think it has reached the stage where written critics can only lead to misunderstandings. I strongly suggest you paint over the bits that you consider faulty.



3x


VERSION 2

3x

Credits go to Amelie & ProgZmax for the original work base.

I love the sprite. The only thing I can notice that looks off in my eyes is that Indy's right hand looks too small. But other than that, looks pretty kick arse to me :D

I'm probably not the right person to be doing this because that sprite is more than I could ever do but regardless...
I thought the hat in the original might have looked a bit big, so what I did was darken the squares were the eyes normally would be,
attempting a kind of "blending effect" with the brim and the shade.



To me it looks like he looks more straight-forward now, though it might not look as good if you zoom in on it.
Oh well, that's spriting for ya.

Not at all, it's actually a good enhancement. I'm not very good at those "indirect enhancements" where changing pixels somewhere makes it look better somewhere else. To me, that's black magic.

Please vote (on each point separately)




PS: Amelie you didn't respect the one requirement I expressed (don't move the eyes up or down) so I had to move the head one pixel down on your sprite.

Definitely body 1.
But neither hat is perfect. You need some sort of cross between hat 1 and hat 2.

I can't decide  :undecided: :confused: Both have no neck...
They have no neck because there's the jacket's collar. I welcome criticism but your sprite's shoulders are too pushed backwards and narrow. There's got to be a proper solution.

Did a quick paint-over of the hat. Do not like either hat 1 nor 2.

Pushed a few pixels around, maybe some parts or details will prove useful. The shading and colors of my edits are quite random and I wouldn't really know how to fix them without seeing some of the game backgrounds first.


The main issues for me were that baggy right arm and those tiny hands, both of which have already been addressed by others.
The original spirte also had a surprisingly high color count (I personally wouldn't enjoy animating a pixel art sprite with 71 colors), I pulled it down to 30, but with better color choices that number could probably be much lower.

Once again, please tell which is your favorite
1) body
2) hat.

Body 3
Hat 4

OK I must say this hread confuses me a lot. Am I the only one to see hats 4 and 5 only like a bowl hat ? How could it be Indiana Jones' brim/fedora ?
