One last experiment before I start polishing and drawing the other views of previous headgear.

I tried to make a new cloth hood which would fit mages or druids better than wulax's one.

I think the shape is decent, maybe it could be less symmetrical. But I have a hard time shading it. Here are my different attemps:

  • 1 and 2 are similar and use bands from back to front
  • 3, I tried to use areas instead of bands
  • 4 is a mix a 1 and 3
  • 5 is another attempt with maybe better band compression (maybe I could add a highlight?)

Let me know which one you prefer or if you have any advice! :)

@bluecarrot16 To generate the full spritesheets, I can use your lpctools and follow the example given for the hair?

Thanks bluecarrot16 for the suggestions, I will rework my hats with your edits! :)

I was inspired yesterday and made more prototypes and experiments.

I tried to made headbands for magicians with talismans and gems. They are meant to be under the hair so that it should work with most of the hair assets.

I also tried to make antlers to make druid characters. The first one is derived from the deer in [LPC] bears, deer, lions and more by tapatilorenzo. The second one is original and I made an alternative with small leaves.

What do you think of these?

3 is also my new favorite.

Thank you for the feedback! :)

OK! There is also shading 3 that looks like the left of the knot of 1 but symmetric.

I think the classic version of LPC characters and Eliza's have different vibes and one may be more suitable than the other depending on the game. Thus, I'm a bit uncomfortable with the terms "LPC Certified" or even "LPC Revised" for naming a fork which implicitly mean that the classic version is inferior. I would prefer a more neutral name like "Eliza's LPC".

Personally, I plan to continue using classic LPC assets in my game as I find them more suitable and there are more assets available. And if I need to commission new assets it would be for this base. I think you are underestimating the artist time that would be required to reach the number of assets currently available for the classic base for Eliza's. There are a very small number of skilled pixel artists active in the LPC community and I think this time would be better spent working on new assets than adapting assets for a new base.

So as far as I'm concerned, it's +1 for an updated style guide that takes into account all the evolutions and new practices in the community but -1 for using Eliza's base as a reference.

Finally, I briefly looked at your draft and I have a maybe controversial suggestion: artists should submit spritesheets with only 3 directions (north, west and south) and the sprites for the east direction should either be automatically generated by a script from the sprites of the west direction or generated directly in games. There is a large number of little inconsistencies between west and east directions in the assets and it would be good to have a workflow that prevent them in the future.

This new version mainly adds two new craft shops (tailor shop and carpenter workshop), the ability to buy a house and to furnish them, and crops. You can have a look at this post for a tour of the new features.
