Back Standing
Image

got the front and back alld one. Just have to do sides.

I was gonna do shoulders on the back... like you can feel your shoulder blades... well at least I can... but it looked like breasts lol

comments?

Im thinking I need to remove the knees from the back... even though it could be seen as where it bends in the back I dont know if it looks right... maybe just shade there

The shading on the forward and backward sprite are VERY similar. This will look strange if the character changes from walking down to walking up and vice versa. It will seem as if his face appears and dissapears.
Same thing with the arms and the legs. They are exactly the same.

Most people don't stand with their feet pointing out to the sides so much.

then again, people also usually don't have heads bigger than their torso. maybe this one has to stand like this to keep his head balanced and not fall over sideways :wink:

I've seen slightly worse... I think. :P

Btw, I wonder if he's even reading all the comments. He doesn't seem to reply to them.
