I recently just started spriting. As of now i've yet to create any whole new characters, i've just kinda aged some Rekka no Ken characters as I would see them in the future.
Sain was my first work. I wanted to better showcase his carefree attitude (Longer unkept hair, goatee, open shirt) and his less formal fighting style (more freelance looking armor with the spikes). I personally think I could shade the hair a bit better.
Erk was next. Dark magic is frequently regarded as the most powerful and advanced magic, so I like to think that after mastering Anima, Erk moved on to study Dark Magic. So here, he is a Shaman. I really like how he turned out.
Then came Wil. I didn't change a whole lot with him. In my future he now travels with Dart on adventures, so I basically just made his clothing a bit more casual.
Next, Oswin. His age is starting to take it's toll on him (graying hair, bit more prominent cheekbones, softer eyebrows). His armor is starting to show wear and tear from years of his loyal service (scratches, dings, faded color). I really like how his armor turned out.
The last one I currently have done is Lowen. He's been climbing the ranks, and so has better and a bit fancier armor. I've been told his helmet looks off, but I don't really see it.
I know i'm not too good, but what do you guys think? I did these in MS Paint. I'm certainly not at the skill where I can make whole faces or clothing from scratch (my current work, Dieck, definitely proves that....), but I don't think i'm terrible. Thoughts, suggestions, etc?
