Tastleless-but-Fun Fanart of a videogame project I'm the art lead for; Battle for Wesnoth.

Go play it. [link] It's like FFT, except with online multiplayer. It's also completely free - not 'free, but secretly trying to weasel money out of you', but actual free, no bullshit, done for the love of the craft.

Other folks who were involved in making the game:

I used to play this game on my PC. I doubt it runs on Mac, but if it does, I'll probably pick it back up. Great picture, but I agree with some of the other people. The eyes just seem strange to me. :X

I make the Mac version - if it doesn't work, you better let me know. ;) It does require 10.4+ though.

I think I agree with the above poster - perhaps a single pixel of darker colour in the lower left corner of the iris would improve them.

otherwise... wouldn't it be cool if we could have sprites this size and detail in the project? Bah.

Pretty awesome =)

There are a bunch of other wesnothians on dA - I know Doc Paterson is here somewhere, as is thrawn, skizzaltix, cloud... I could track them all down, if i had a moment...

Nicely done though the eyes look a bit strange to me.

Yeah, the eyes are a stylistic experiment - using just a rectangle to convey stuff. Personally kinda indifferent on it; it feels slightly 'anime' and gets the color across, but might be a bit -too- flat.

Gotta say, I do appreciate people willing to do actual critiques, rather than just fellacing each other because they're all so afraid of hurting each others feelings.

I may return the favor.

I dunno. There's so much to do with personal preferences in art that it's difficult to say what is wrong or what is right except for blatantly obvious stuff (for example bad anatomy in supposedly realistic pieces). The eyes might work fine in the game you're doing and if they look 'anime' to you and that's what you want then it's fine. I'm not fond of japanese spriting styles as a whole ('cept for some exceptions like Capcom's fighter sprites) so it might just be my own aversion to anything like those that might make me view them as a bit weird.

Have no idea if what I said makes any sense there. Very tired and stressed.

Yeah, these aren't actually from the game - this is just fanart.

The real game is most of the way to being converted from a mishmash of really amateur anime+eurocomic styles into more of a high-end, realistic style. Although I still need to redo these two characters in particular.

Amusingly I'm probably going with rather different costume designs when I do. More armor, mostly.
