I'm kind of new to kind to spriting and I've been having a little trouble

Posted Image

You see this guy? He's supposed to be an adult version of Ross from Sacred Stones, but these eyebrows are giving me a lot of trouble. Can some experienced spriters out there give me some advice?

*chuckles to himself*

The ends are too long, and the crease begins too early. Not to mention they are mis-matched.

the eyebrows are too long

you can google "eyebrow golden ratio" for tips and images :):

the High Point on the eyebrow arch can be found on a line connecting the tip of the nose to the center of the iris; and where the eyebrow should end can be found on a line running through the edge of the corresponding nostril through the outer edge of the eye

Since when has "too long" = "too thick?" Son, I love thick eyebrows; I have no qualms with a man with some actual fuzz on his brow, yo. It's just waaaay too long.

Seriously...the are too loooooooooooooooooooong. Thick, fine. But eyebrows shouldn't be snuggling with the cheek.

A woman who cares a lot about spelling and grammar.
"You're*"

As for your mug, the eyebrows need to blend more, using the skin tones to make it seem less, pasted on.

I think the eyebrows look fine now.

Next up, making the pauldron splay across his chest with actual shading.

Spoiler (You should open up a jewelry store with the amount of rings you got, sir)


Red: "Would you like to sleep on my pillow arm? It's so fluffy~"
You should probably work on shading that correctly instead of raping that poor, little area with the darker skin tones. I'd reference some of the sleeveless men in FE7.

Green: "That's not an A-A+...that's a D-."
If I rubbed my finger across those edges, I'd probably cry like a little girl, scream for a band-aid, and beg for a lollipop. Waaaaay to jagged. You gotta do some Anti-aliasing there.

Orange: "YOU DON'T KNOW THE POWER OF THE DARK SIDE!"
You gotta shade some face for a light patch there, man. You can't really mix the FE6/7 style shading with FE8. If you are going for FE7, shade over there with some lightest tone. Otherwise, for the FE8, use that orange color on the lower half of that face like the other FE8 sprites.

Magenta: "Has anyone seen my outline? I feel naked without it."
Yeaaaaaaah. Open here. Need outline please. Looks cut off.

Cyan: "Watch your step. Don't wanna hit a hole!"
It's not a HUUUUUUGE deal, like one that destroys the aesthetic of the sprite, but it's kinda distracting. Filling that little green hole with border color would suffice.

Yellow: "Oh ho ho ho. Suns out today. Got plenty of shade!"
These are just shading flumps. The hair one is kinda weird, and the arm is like LOLTOOMUCH and makes it look deformed...or like a cancerous mole. Take your pick. There are other places on the mug too, but the other ring got in the way.

Not to mention his arm needs muscle definition. Don't trust Dieck's arm shading, it's all sorts of wrong. Look to the FE7 men with their arms showing for arm shading advice.
