[Taking Requests] Rook's Sprites
« on: July 13, 2014, 02:06:21 AM »
It took some time to think, but Heretic has managed to convince me to do this. I'm certain this is the first thread of it's kind, a sprite request thread. I prefer to do still sprites without animation as it is faster and far less of a headache, but I think I'll do those as well. Due to the fact that I believe I may get more requests than I can handle, I ask that you only make 1 request at a time and once I finish your request, I'll take another, even if you are the same person...duh. Anyway, if you want a quick example of some work I've done, I made this a few months ago...

http://hammerwatch.com/forum/index.php?topic=1889.0

That's a pretty good example, but since then I've practiced my sprite creation skills and I have a much better method for making animated sprites that will make it much less painful, but still a headache. Note, when making a request, you either need to explain nearly every detail of how you want the sprite to look like and/or provide images for reference, or you can just give a very brief description of the sprite and allow me to figure out the rest to make it look the best I can with my style.

I can do enemies, spawners, players, objects, but not terrain, it doesn't suit me well. I'll get to you as soon as I can after you request.

In my spare time, I've made these 3 sprites, the animated armors. The first being the animated footman, the second being the animated archer, and the third being the animated longswordsman. These are just a taste of what I can do. I hope you enjoy.

I liked the caped armour! I can already seeing it floating around in a dungeon!

I noticed a thing that you should fix to make it consistent with hammerwatch.

The light direction on pretty much everything in the game comes from the left/above and slighlty front. [PICTURE FOR REFERENCE]


This rule can ofcourse be broken but in most scenarios it should be applied.
Your characters look good already but changing the light direction will make your art fit perfectly into Hammerwatch :)

Here is also a light direction template made by hipshot



Might come to help if you are making a new kind of character!

I don't know how I didn't notice that. I'll look into fixing all of that, but it could take a bit of time.

Alright, I fixed the lighting, or at least as much as I'm ever going to fix. Now they should hopefully fit in hammerwatch a lot more. Enjoy.

I need a slightly less bland and generic request. Give me a list of each sprite and what each sprite will have involved in it.

Ok, sorry for being very generic:P (everyone needs their generic ghost swords though)

I would like you to make me a demonic sword, with a creepy purple glow that is possessed by ghosts.
It needs to have a attack animation(the sword being swung), a move(floating around) animation and a idle(floating around) animation.

the rest of it you can decide:P(the general look,etc) I'm not going to be super specific

I'm requesting this since I'm terrible at drawing possessed swords, and my custom levels need some.

A sword standing stright up with apurple glow. :)
For an attack, just make  it lean off-center, with a  purple slash.

I've drawn most of the sprite, but I've been busy with a project, so unfortunately, I haven't been able to finish it. You can either wait a little longer or I can send it to you as it is.
