I just finished updating a sprite I’m working on, and I would love some feedback. It’s for an RPG Maker game using some half-kaizer sprite templates provided by Grimimic. So far I like what I have. The clothing colors might change, and her hair may wind up different, but I like the outfit I have for her. Currently I only have a front view and back view.
I wanted to take some inspiration from Faye Valentine’s outfit in Cowboy Bebop. The character design with the suspenders, shorts, and flowy top always intrigued me. I gave this character the similar little cutout on the front of Faye’s shorts by having my character’s shorts be unbuttoned, so her belly can freely grow. She also has a heavily modified kimono for a top. It’s meant to be loose, so I tried to give it some asymmetry. Much of it has been cut from the length, and the sleeves have been shortened. There are canonical reasons for this (and I have some Japanese RPG Maker MV assets I wanted to have a reason to use). I like the character design in the Currently Untitled Stuffing RPG, and I love the straps on Phage’s hips. That tied well in to Faye’s suspenders, so I added them to the unbuttoned pants. I don’t really know hoe well they will read, but I definitely want them in the final design.
Second draft with full sprite sheet. I changed her hair and the colors in her top to match a more earthy palette.
