Yeah, so Mercenary Lord helped me out with this guy, but I did almost all of it myself, and I tried to keep it simple.
NOTE: I dont have a class name for it yet.

Any crit?

It looks unfinished, TBH. And ML helping you is really obvious. It has VEEERY similar style to ML.


As for actual crit, the head/helmet is too flat, and the border between the face and the helmet is nonexistant. Shading on the face doesn't change in the slightest where shadows should be cast across it from the helmet.

Also, the guy has a chest that sticks out and his waist is tiny.

The arm holding the lance seems to be REALLY stubby. His arm holding the sword, however, is a bit too fat and I'd almost say a bit too long.(not to mention it seems to be missing joints.)

It's obvious that you used MS Paint and used the base colors. The outline should not be black, just a very dark gray. When you sprite, try to customize your own colors, because if you use the base colors in Paint, it gets boring, fast.

Before you go straight into FC's, try out a few splices first. This is my most important piece of advice. You can't become a master spriter overight. I'm still splicing and I've been making sprites for quite a while now.

I'll get you a set of sprites to practice on, if you'd like.

EDIT: Let me show you my most recent battle sprite.

This is only partially custom drawn. The torso and legs I got from the Mercenary sprite, and the sword came from a sprite made by YUHTITS. Everything else, I drew myself, but it still isn't FC.

Start with recoloring, then go to splicing, then go on to FC spriting.

Here's a site that has TONS of sprites (face and battle) as well as tons of other crap that you may find useful:

If you need a full face sheet, I've got one that Klauk gave me.

Yeah, I just wanted to see how he would do.
Actually, the palette itself is actually fully customized.

I didnt know I had my own style. Kewl.

It's this wierd method of shading that IDK how you do it but for some reason it doesn't look ENTIRELY FE. It's kinda like all of your lighting is coming from all directions on one side, not just one angle.

Oh, DB already gave a good crit. But what I say is--wait, he said that, too.

But there's no reason you should start with recoloring, IMHO. Just start splicing with default FE palettes first. Some may argue that recolors "give you a feel" for the sprite, but not as much as actually working with them, that's for sure.

Well, as long as you're starting at a step BEFORE FCing, it's fine.

Well, Rin. You were the very rare exception. You FC'd a pretty good sprite your first shot.

I agree with kay here. Spamming has gone on too long. We want to see progress on this sprite.
