I’ve been training myself in the more basic aspects of hacking, and I’m currently working on how to sprite. In sticking with tradition, I tried to splice some basic red and green cavalier portraits, but I diverged during the process. I made two different sets, and I gotta say I’m proud of my progress.
But I really want to get a sense of what the community thinks; the end goal would eventually be to incorporate the portraits into a hack, and a hack isn’t about the author, it’s about the players. So I’m asking for advice on two fronts: the actual technical, graphical aspects of the portraits, and just the overall appeal of them.
As a side note, I always thought that the cavaliers should have some form of head protection. It’s just more knightly, and that why i decided to use Maxime and Cameron as models, plus the two are similar yet different enough to not appear to be straight clones.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
