Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

Just before I begin I'd like to say that these aren't bad, just you asked for how to improve them so I'm going to tell you :V

Ok, well to start with they are quite small. You would probably be safe making them twice as big as they are now!
Your man unit is facing directly forwards, while the truck is facing directly left. Infantry in Picture Wars usually use something we call "3/4 view" which basically means that they aren't quite looking forwards and aren't quite looking to the side but are somewhere in between. This makes it look less like they are walking sideways like crabs and allows for easier posing.
You also have a lot of colours for your shading (although well done for trying) which aren't actually very far removed from eachother. If I were you I would try and use a maximum of three shades on a unit this size and make sure that each shade was visually distinct (although not too much, this is something you will just have to use your own judgement on).
That last point is a stylistic choice though so it's less important than the other two.

On top of that, welcome to Picture Wars and have fun ;]

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

You might want to change the dude there a lot asap. I tried making a circular army for my first army and got insulted, yelled at, pretty much beaten down because they looked like someone else's army, that accusation was based solely on their circular shape. Anyway, good luck and hope you don't get the same unwelcome err, welcome that I did.

No, you made a CIRCLE army, not circular, and as was explained, there happens to be a rather well known army like that.

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

I'm just warning him of the dangers, after the welcome I received it'd be rude not to, you have to understand it from my point of view, I join in thinking this will be a fun new experience, view a match thread or two, read the tutorial on matches and go about designing an army, based it loosely off a sub-concept for a friend's indie game I had created 3 months prior, made my account and it turned into that very warming welcome I received. Anyway, lets not derail the thread any more and get back to what this thread was intended for, his army.

It looks much better, but why you have put so much effort into the text?

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

Your guys are all facing to the right what we do in PW is do what we call a 3/4 perspective where the unit is between facing the viewer and facing the side here is an example of one of my units in this perspective.

A 3/4 view would also show both legs.

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

may i suggest putting the latest version on your first post. so that people can see it when they open the thread, and then if they want, see it how it progressed.

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

I think it needs more work on shading.

Re: Chesterip's Untitled Army

Your shading needs more contrast still. For your tank it would be best to make it somewhat less tall, I'd also advise removing the big numbers and letters - instead go for plates and exhaust pipes for details. At the moment its shape is just a big box and doesn't really look all that natural. Use some real tank reference pictures for a general idea of how they tend to look (But don't copy them, real tanks are pretty boring)

I'm just going to start spamming this when I see people that won't stop using gradient shading.
