|New redesign sketch.|
So I think I've finally decided to bite the bullet and slightly redesign my character. Its something I've been fighting for a long time, but I've never been able to escape the Superman comments and I need it to not be the first thing that pops in people's heads. Not wanting to completely redraw all of my art work, I'm probably going to add a few elements and change the hair color. The only animation that I don't still have the original files for is the run animation. And that's probably going to have to be redone anyways. If not, I can just do a paint over on that one and call it a day. I've been mulling it over for a while and am reaching a point where if I'm going to do it, I need to do it now. I've been creating new player sprites the last few nights. I was "de-rezing" them and thinking about some ways to speed up asset production. At this point, I can just draw over some of the elements and it will work fine. Ultimately its just a hair color change and adding some gauntlets, rims to the top of the boots, and possibly a bit of trim to the cape. I'm not totally sold on the trim yet. I'll need to see how it looks when its shrunk down.
