I dont know if this helps or not but I read recently for many people that are color blind soft transitions are a huge problem. Like one color slowly fading into another color will basically read as 1 single tone.
It seems that the original owners are just not as aggressive as some IPs are. I have read in the past of many games that got threatened by nintendo for having a game character that remotely resembled Zelda's Link character. They are very very aggressive when it comes to characters that could pass as Link.
Instead of paying 20 dollars a frame times a crap load of frames I would just pay someone to make a 3 model and animate it. Once its animated you can have blender spit out as many 2d frames and directions as you want. The cost of modeling and animating may be the same or less but a animated 3d model is way more useful to have then 2d sprites.
The dragons front wrists are kinda weird. Its like there is no bone or something. It reminds me of that scene from harry potter when he breaks his arm and the guy makes the bones disappear trying to fix it. HIs arm just like folds over itself.
I dont think glass would be used on this type of house. to me its like putting a glass window on a castle. I think wooden shutters would be more appropriate. I am a beginner as well so I may be totally wrong.
I think this video was like the first. There is a little more perspective in this example but its pretty much the same blocking out. The rest of the video was sped up and unfinished. I dont mean to sound ungrateful but I didn't see any information in this video that wasn't already provided by you earlier in the series. I am looking forward to the next in the series though.
That is not the best example of 32 colors. I have seen wonderful art using just 2 colors before. It depends how good the artist is. Color use can not make up for a bad drawing. You need to have a solid drawing first. This is why traditional painters have to learn to draw first before they paint.
And before you put some bucks into buying professional tools. There's the common misconception of that professional tools help people making professional art, but the only truth is, that professional artist get art done more efficiently with professional tools. Just watch some videos of professional artist and what they can do with just a piece of paper and a pencil...
This seems to happen often. If you read the comments of the tutorials on youtube you constantly see what program is that or what brush are you using. Like if they just had that special brush or program they would be able to paint like the tutorial. I used to think I would be better if I just had a cintiq but I ended up getting one and I still suck. It doesn't matter what program or special tool you have its all about whos in control of the pen.
