Character Illustrations

Post by ProfitShame on Wed Feb 25, 2015 10:53 am

I was tasked to do these types of illustrations. So far I have a Reimu for viewing.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/hdhuoz1xihbl9ye/reimuchart.jpg?dl=0

With that, I present some questions regarding the other characters:
Should I do just this?
Color?
More or less angles?
Other suggestions or changes?

I'm liking what I'm seeing so far. It's a style I really like, and one that I think will suit the game very well. I only have one bit of criticism about it. (And if you have been following what I've been saying, you'll likely guess it's about proportions.)

I think the size of the extremities should be increased. We want them to still stand out when the camera is zoomed out a lot, I think. Those feet are really tiny, and even the hands should be a bit larger. After that is done, there is a high probability that I'll ask for the head to be made slightly larger to match the other size increases, though I'm not sure by how much . (Or even if any, it may just be that this head size still looks good with the larger feet and hands, though I am assuming that it'll look best with a small adjustment.)

But yeah, other than those minor proportion quirks, I really, really like this style. I think it's a very good style to base the models on. Excellent work!

Many thanks!

I will make some iterative changes to the hands and feet and post them to the skype chat. By that method, we can figure out what's best for it then.

I already saw what you posted on Skype, but I think it would be better if you posted it here too. A permanent record is a good thing. Not only do we keep a record of all the iterative steps, we also can post feedback whenever it's more convenient for us, considering out schedules.

Posting iteration 2 of Reimu. Again I adjusted the feet and hands to be slightly larger. Her head is still the same and her arms will be addressed as well.
I need to know if this is close to the proportion that you are aiming for, along with any other recommended changes that need to be brought up.

I know the issue of the hands and feet got brought up, I think those are fine. On the other hand, I feel like her legs are too short, or at least it seems like it because of her skirt length. I'm not sure what could be done about it, though shortening it a bit or making her legs longer may (but probably won't) solve the problem. I like the art style though, especially the face.

I think a part of it is that there are some inconsistencies with the legs for the different angles, even in the first iteration. Like one where the length of the upper leg is longer than the torso. I will try to iron out those issues. One thing is that perfection might not be attainable in these, but I do what I can to fix them as they appear.

This was to fix some issues with the anatomy. The next step will be to add some slight customization to the outfit.

So I adjusted the other poses and altered the costume slightly. Unless this is what we go with, this will not be the last.

Here's Marisa along with Wriggle and Youmu. I am also posting a newer Reimu, because the first one feels somewhat stale. Feedback, criticism and suggestions are welcome.
