Not on the subject of Animated Battlers but aimed towards a couple of people who’ve asked where they can get the resources to match these battlers, well aside from the RTP and the ones I’ve based off existing content there’s not really much chance of finding ones. So?
Well I’ve decided to dig out my good’old tablet and give it a go, unfortunately I’m a bit pants at duplicating the RTP style. I’ve found a couple of tutorials but nothing really that can indicate on creating the style of line art (Looks hand drawn with different thickness?) and also that blue shadow (Is it an overlay? A layer effect? Guess work?).
Here’s the two WIP attempts –
-PS. Meliadul is being a pain in the rear and that sword is far too flipping big!
Two almost three poses done on Meliadul and I discover that I’ve designed the sword all wrong. I made a simple yellow guard, the problem with that is on Dollmages original the guard was actually quite complex and had a great design to it.
So after trying to simply include a newer layer blocking the my simple design with the newer and failing I’m having to redo all the idle, attack and skill poses which isn’t nice. I thought it’d be a simple redo but found that I have to move the holding arm and alter the hand gave me a chance to redesign the angles of the sword and hopefully give a better finish once done.
In other news I set up a little Twitter account, https://twitter.com/#!/Holder_AB which was required for RMWebs download. So I may have little updates of my spriting days and how things are progressing. I know a few people like to send me PMs on the forums for updates so you can continue to do that for general questions but this would be a overall progress report.
Should have some visual content and future ideas in the next post. Stay safe everyone.
Okay I’m posting this at a couple of forums and also in my blog.
Two things I need help with.
1. The ‘cover kitty’ on the ace cover art doesn’t have a weapon displayed and I can’t figure out what weapon to give her. I was thinking a dagger but I’m not sure – Any advice? Weapon pictures help.
2.Meliadul – I have the standard DollMage colours and a hair alteration (The red head version), but I’m looking for a different costume colour. I know a lot of variations were created for DollMages battlers but I can’t locate any for this one. Help locating one?
To go with the new release I’ve also just updated the banner and I’ll continue to do so until that pesky header shadow is covered – rather that then pay to input a line of code to remove it 😛
Okay so I’ve just released my first Archer, it is based on a character from the first RMWeb resource staff release (credits on the sheet itself) You can find the full sheet at the Official RM Fourms and also RMAce.net, both of which are linked at the side menu bar.
