In regards to child sprites, I always thought it'd be cool to start off as a kid and at say level 55, you become an adult and start using the adult spritesheet. When you're a kid, you can only wield shorter lighter weapons/armor, but once you grow up you can use bigger and better stuff. Gives the player a goal to work toward.

Level 55 is way too high. I've played for years, and I still haven't reached that level yet if I remember my level correctly.

I've reached it in under a year. How about lvl 20?

Sounds fair. ^_^

It would also be nice if every equipment sprite sheets can be transformed to use on children sprite programmatically. The male version may work as kids don't have breasts.

We should probably finalize the player animations first, to reduce graphics work.

Level 20? Far to easy - can achieve that easily within one day. If we want to give people something to aim for, there has to be some challenge to it - I'd suggest 40 - 50 would be reasonable.

Well, since I have just come back, they were completely destroyed from my old hard drive. I can still edit the young boy one. About being a child in TMW, I would have to say a no, would require to much work to make on whole playerset based on child movements, plus I don't think any child would be allowed into a cave full of snakes or a dangerous mine.

Here is a recently updated version of Vincent. Instead of making his eyes bigger, I made him have a bit larger face. I believe it made it look a bit more like a child.

Edit: 3rd edit already, found something weird everytime I saw it.

I don't find the head to be too big, maybe try removing a pixel on each side.
