No, it's not only you... but the shading of the hat 5 is the one I like best. (laugh)

Maybe a look at the "original" will help:


As for body, maybe 3, even though he seems to be leaning backwards.

Always have to have a go at an indy sprite :-D

There are a lot of little things in each sprite I kind of like. So, instead of pointing them all out, which would be a bit tedious and confusing,  I did a little pick and mix edit with some additional pixel pushing:



...in the last edit I tried to give the leather jacket a little more shine. Don't know if it works, but I do like it somehow.

OK I must say this hread confuses me a lot.
Well, this happens when you run a forum poll :)  Preferences vary and people see things differently, especially in case of pixel art, because it leaves a lot of room for imagination. Don't you have a person in your team who makes this type of executive desicions?

For the record, I prefer other hat styles over my own. I didn't look at any reference material while drawing it and simply tired to do something different and present more options.

Just for the fun of comparing, a recent simple Indy which never found a home:
I think I'd actually enjoy a short lighthearted Indy game with simple and more cartoony looking graphics, would be an interesting change from the usual style.

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 ?

Look, Hat 1 reminds cowboy and hat 3 reminds blue oyster :)

Ouch. And now, Mad's hats remind me of this :


Well, mine was hat number 2, so ...

Interesting, someone made the Indy line-up creative commons and freely available.

I think I've taken everyone's advice into account in sprite #8

I've got just two very small issues with your last edit.

There are a few highlights on his left leg that look a bit like stray pixels.

The other one is something I tried to address in my edit. The zipper, fly (or whatever you might call it) on his trousers is a pixels width too far to the right, imho, which gives the impression of his pelvis being turned further than his torso.
Hope, you get my meaning, that sentence wasn't one of my best.  :P

Otherwise,  you've got a winner there, so go and get on with finishing the game! ;)

8 is definitely my favourite now. Definitely that one. Especially that hat, simply brilliant.
Just fix those few problems Mad pointed out, and there you go. The perfect Indy sprite. :-D

Yes. I actually tried to fix the zipper thing in #2, but someone revertedto the old zipper.
As for the stray pixels, I don't know where they came from. I'll fix them in the final iteration.
