I cranked out some sprite designs today. It’s pretty intimidating, designing a sprite I can be happy with for an extended period, as well as addressing the different environments and situations it will be placed in.
My thought process so far:
The squat design serves as a nice differentiation from the non-sprite style, which serves a purpose unto itself, and suiting the general shortness of sprites. It’s also quite charming.
If I fixed up the lengths on the elongated one, it could also be quite nice, but I prefer A for the moment. The third model is mostly there to showcase other features that the sprites could include. I am seriously considering the feet, but I’d rather only use arms when essential for interaction, and I don’t fancy shoulders on a sprite.
Any opinions, be they concurrent, dissenting, or majority?
