Top viewed things without making them look like crap?
Im trying to keep things simple but a bit detailed, so im doing them in 16x16 tiles, but i might change to 24x24 if needed. It seems that having few pixels make it harder to draw in.
This is what i got. They all look like they're dancing. And are way to small to hold a sword
Maybe try putting feet in back instead of just at the front ... like when he swings his leg back, foot back, swings leg forward, foot forward. Or you could just not show the feet at all if it's a fat guy.
Edit: oh, and the arms should only see the shoulders while standing still, and show more of the arm only when they swing forward or back.
Blood of the Ancient One, Seen only as Shadow, Faster than Lightning, Fierce as the Greatest Dragon, Nearly Invisible, Floating in a Dream, Entered through the Demon Door, Destroyer of Evil in a Realm with a Red Sky Scarred, Who could I be ?
I think that you shouldn't do a straight top down view, but rather an angled topdown view. Look at some SNES sprites for LoZ:LttP or FInal Fantasy IV, V, and VI to get an idea of what I'm talking about.
