Title: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Koruten on May 19, 2012, 04:58:17 PM
Hey guys. I've really gotten into spriting, so I need some criticism. So far, I've only made part of me.

I'm making it off of the Zodiac sprite. Coments please.

as i have said on irc...
making the background black would be better for the eyes..
the back frames arent completely recolored yet :D
and the damaged frame has the hair on the right instead of the left..
and on the portrait... remove the outlines of the t-shirt collar.. make it into a darker color from the collar and shade

It looks like you're recoloring all the gray clothing (shirt + jacket, shoes) one by one. Why not download and use Zodiac's Palette Editor? You could then get those grays changed in one clean sweep to dark teal in about 10 seconds. Good luck!

Title: Fixed Marche
Post by: Koruten on June 03, 2012, 05:16:39 PM
The Marche sprite off of the main site's sprite database is messed up and some places, and I decided to fix those mistakes. Here you guys go.

Finished.

This needs to be fixed, heavilly. And since critting is too hard given the amount of stuff to do, here are fixes I did.

Post by: Koruten on June 03, 2012, 08:04:59 PM
Um. That's looking great Kagebunji, I love the hair but, he isn't suppost to be wearing a jacket, he's wearing a shirt.

I'm no spriter, but the two blues on the original seem to clash with each other. That'd be a start, I think.
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on June 03, 2012, 08:32:38 PM
Bare chest just makes him much more badass. Well, you can always change it back to a shirt, but it will most likely be flat. Also, you need to work more on the portrait, cause shirt is totally flat, and those dark outlines just add in to the effect. Well, I wanted to use this fix for something of my own, but yoy can feel free to use it.

Thanks Kagebunki. I'll be sure to use it.

Post by: Koruten on June 05, 2012, 07:15:22 PM
Using Kagebunji's Sprite, I finished the sheet. Unfortunatly, the image apears like crap in the pal editor and won't work in SHISHI's Sprite Editor.
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Lijj on June 05, 2012, 07:42:26 PM
There's the BMP also.
I fixed it by opening in Graphics Gale, then going under ALLFRAMES, COLORDEPTH, I changed it to 4pp (16 color) then back 8pp (256 color) and saving it. To add a portrait and it's separate palette see:http://ffhacktics.com/tutorials.php?id=10 (http://ffhacktics.com/tutorials.php?id=10)

Again, Thanks Lijj.

Finished my first sprite thanks to Kagebunji and Lijj.

looks like someone from dragon ball haha
anyway i think using kage's suggested palettes would be better?

Reviving an old topic to show this. :>

It's a WIP. :P
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on March 28, 2015, 10:32:33 AM
For a WIP, it's going in the right direction. I like the fur on his shoulder, rare in FFT. Let's see the final product :D

Thanks Kagebunji. I'll keep you all updated.

Post by: Jumza on March 29, 2015, 02:29:23 AM
I like it a lot too! There are some strange dark pixels on the portrait though under the hair next to the ear, if it's a sideburn then I think it need to be connected a little more to the rest of the hair, if not then I'd be tempted to remove it. It's pretty snazzy though :o

Shippin out an update. :)

Portrait works in-game. :D
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on March 29, 2015, 12:01:55 PM
Neck on portrait is pretty bulky, mainly due to that darker skin tone on the side. Would you mind posting normal sized portrait and sprite too? For the sprite, the fur could use more shading. You might wanna try harder on making his hair different from Wiegraf's a little bit more. It's coming along nicely :)
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Koruten on March 29, 2015, 12:26:33 PM
The portrait has some incorrect colors, which is why it looks like that. I had taken a portrait I made in Paint XP and pasted it into Gale and did some color edits. Since I used (possibly) too many colors, it kinda messed up.

And yeah I'm trying to style up his hair a bit more. Just trying to remove the cape one sprite at a time. :3

EDIT: I patched up the portrait a bit.

Yeah, Jumza's right about the neck area. Also about what Kagebunji said; if you move the top part of the neck in where it sticks out more it would look better. Then move the other side under the jaw in 1 pixel probably.
Cool portrait though!

Close! but here's a minor touch up cause it would have been harder to explain than to to just show you:

Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on April 03, 2015, 09:01:01 PM
Simple details, yet give so much more quality :)

It's going in the right direction!
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Koruten on April 03, 2015, 09:56:44 PM
Alright. Thanks for the improvement tips Lijj.

Also I started working on the back of the head.

Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on April 03, 2015, 10:41:14 PM
A very good improvement! You should also try to change the left bang, and it will be completely different. Nicely done :)
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: MiKeMiTchi on April 04, 2015, 02:04:34 AM
He's looking good. The left bang on the portrait stands out too much, you should lighten its outline or alter it, as Kage mentioned. Show a little bit of his back hair on the portrait, too, if you're going to use the new version of the sprite. Also, do follow Lijj's edit on the armor and other minor shadings. It's really a nice touch-up. :)
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Koruten on April 06, 2015, 03:11:09 AM
Alright, time for more updates...terrible ones at that.

I think I messed this up pretty badly ahaha.

Left : First attempt to update; Right : Second Attempt.

I'm not sure if I like it. It looks weird to me, but I cannot seem to fix it.

I kinda wanted it to match the hairstyle I drew for him. :s

Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Kagebunji on April 08, 2015, 09:33:25 AM
Overall the shapes aren't too bad, it's the shading that is the issue here. It has pillow shading in some places and banding. I would suggest using Wiegraf's hair and copy/paste somethiung that will look similiar instead of customing it, since doing custom portraits is especially hard. With some work, it will work out :)

I actually kinda like that sideburn in your first portrait attempt.

Don't know what to make of this yet. I keep looking at it and thinking something looks way off.
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Angel on December 06, 2015, 08:14:04 PM
Mainly, you need a palette adjustment. It looks a bit flat, and that's partly due to only using 15 colors, and mostly due to some of your colors being too similar. The sprite itself isn't that bad, it's just the palette that needs messed with.

I'm back. Been busy with college.

Getting back into the grove with some frankenspriting.

EDIT : Finished sprite.

Don't think I could make a portrait.
Title: Re: Koruten's Sprites
Post by: Koruten on October 31, 2016, 04:42:15 AM
Working on another one.

Made my friend a character for him. For the sprite I took the male Archer head and changed it, and plopped it onto the male Squire body. The portrait is an edit of the Gariland Squire. I honestly tried my best with it.

Lemme know what you think.

Keep at it Koruten. If you keep working at it you'll improve, gotta start somewhere. Looking at other portraits should help with hair flow. With the sprite, most of it is readable which is great. The section between the forehead and hair is a little pixelated though. If you are enjoying making sprites, keep doing so! That's an important part also :).
