So here's what I got so far for the updated Shard look. Added glasses this time around but tried not to make them too obstructive. Crits etc?

Let's see here...

The pants are lacking some major contrast compared to everything else. This probably means the same for the gloves and shoes.

Speaking of shoes, it looks like the purple on the pants is a bit oddly shaded. Pillowed would be the best term for it?
The arm poses look really weird, as in a awkward position. I think it's because the back is leaning forward, so the while it looks perfectly fine the first few sprites, the pointing and the arms up poses look off. The arms up for example look like she's.. Trying to show her muscles? I assume it's some sort of cheering pose, so try and lift the shoulders above the face a bit, making it less weak at the bottom.

The tail also looks a bit oddly shaded. The main thing I'm questioning is the how it has the same shading as say.. The ears or arms, when it's behind the character. Even though I think they do it the same way in the tails sprite, realistically it would be the secondary color becoming the primary, and the third color becoming secondary in the shading department, and so on.

I also don't know why, but the red part of the shading just bugs me as well. It's fine the first sprite, but when you lift the arms up it's just.. Something. Can't put my finger on it. Might just be the way it was shaded?

The biggest problem out of all of them is just the arms in the last 2 poses, can push to 3 because that's a unrealistic pose that people don't make in real life (Unless it's like some sort of 'Sigh' pose, but that would require more of a bent back). As I said, it's in such a awkward position because of how your character is leaning forward, it doesn't look right. Try making a secondary post where Shard is standing upwards? Might cure the whole crazy arms thing.

3/10, extra point because of your avatar is lulzy. However, it's a 3 because you seemingly just made this account, and posted on both comics that Shard and 'Friends' I guess you could go as far to say, are in.

Good try though. If you had a bad sonic recolor for an avatar and you were named xXxGoku.HogxXx I might actually believe you were a giant Shard fanboy.

I'd ditch the glasses. From what I can see, it just looks like she's wearing a load of eye-liner from a distance, and doesn't add much when zoomed in.

Shirt looks alittle clustered, though that may be because of little circle/omega sign you added on to it. I t looks nice, but I would try it without.

The shoe on her right (our left) looks as if it has become dislocated, and the jeans aren't entirely sure how to handle it. I would turn it so it faces more towards the fourth wall.

the white areas need more contrast, as I am having trouble telling whats the lightest shard to the next lightest shade.



Besides that, it's a generally good sprite, so keep it up

Oh my fucking god you guys.

People who gave me critique- Thank you kindly, but I'm having trouble visualizing it. Could you possibly provide an example of what you mean?

People who are 'protecting' me- Stop. I don't want or need you to stand up for me. I honestly prefer it when you're insulting me.

I am not in the mood for this bullshit. If this carries on I will delete this page. Thank you.

What part about "not in the mood for this bullshit" do you not understand? Normally I'd be able to tolerate this, but there are... other things going on and it's interfering with my ability to care.

@eddigardo : Nice use of Eridans typing quirk, especially on the wrong account. I think you meant to go over to the troll one you made <3

@Shard I'm not gonna lie, you need to calm the frick down my dear, because quite frankly, people won't give a damn if you snap at them. I accept that something may be bothering you, but that's no reason to attack others now, is it?

As for an example, I'll get round to making one for you in a bit. For now, I'd suggest just messing with it, and seeing what happens (but in all seriousness, lose the glasses)

I more meant 'care' in the lines of 'care about my behavior towards others'. But yes, you're right, I really shouldn't be commenting in this state of mind. Good day.

Well, look at it from a distance. Like back up from your computer and stuff. If you're far enough, it's going to start looking like things are meshing together. The pants and gloves start to blend, the face itself starts to blend due to the lack of contract, and quite frankly I can't even see the glasses or headband from a distance, so maybe remove those so it allows you to focus more on the contract of light for the face? Because again, from a distance as someone pointed out, it looks like eye liner.

Same can start to go for the tail, at a distance it begins to lack contrast, so it starts to blend in with the arm.

Up close it's not as bad, but from a distance things are just meshing too much.

DAH FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS JUST HAPPENED.

*sees ''protectors''*

Honestly,if i were...to have fanboyish tendencies,i'd say the same thing.

''HURH HURH SHARD IS TOTALLY THE BEST SPRITER''

Now replace Shard with COD and spriter with game and you got game arguements in a nutshell.
