Yes, but it’s now a lot deeper with just about every major character they meet.
There, the result of about an hour’s inexperienced work. The left half is obviously the naked set. I tried to make some royal guard armour, but frankly there was too much yellow and it didn’t seem to go well with his mane/tail. I attempted something like a set of lighter armour in grey on the right, but I’m not to sure about it. The symbol on the shoulder-plates is Luna and Celestia’s cutiemarks intertwined, btw. Hope it doesn’t suck.
Sucking is something it does not do. Here are the sprites after slight editing, mostly smoothening the hair and detailing the armor somewhat:
Thanks a lot dude, this saves me a ton of work on my end!
By the way, I noticed you animated the tail on his walking up animation. He might be the only character in the game with that as I’m too lazy to animate the tails myself.
I’ll post that after I make his current walk cycle.
Sure, and if you submit it I can use it in the game assuming it’s not terrible.
I’m willing to edit if some things are off, like how I smoothen lines.
Here;s a look at a male and female pony standing side by side. The differences in build are subtle, but it’s there.
While I’m at it, I think I should explain something going on with the development process at the moment, why I’m already working on characters like Smile Flower and Odor.
Before I can release Episode 1, I must design the base sprites for roughly 50 characters, excluding generic NPCs. Most of them are just cameos to make Ponyville and Canterlot more lively, Cranky Doodle Donkey, Fancy Pants, Filthy Rich, and Carrot Top for example.
If the character appears at all in Episode 1, they must be sprited, no matter how small their role may be, like Smile Flower and Odor’s 2 minutes of screentime where they don’t even talk.
This is the real reason why submitted OCs don’t appear in Episode 1, I already have a lot on my plate to put together just to get the game started, so they’ll start appearing in Episode 2-4.
I’m so glad I stayed out of the Molestia thing.
People are petty, it’s no different than how the natural reaction these days to violent behavior from the cops is to use more violence. Then the cops reaction is to use even crazier amounts of violence. Humanity is a horrible cycle of stupidity.
Sounds funny, but too much work and maybe a little too raunchy for this game. I do like the naked status idea though, might use it in a later game.
