Character design (2D Platformer)

Recommended Posts

I would greatly appreciate any feedback on the art/design of these characters I've drawn for a 2D Platformer.


I have included the background and a few other assets mostly to provide context for the game the characters will appear in, but feel free to comment on the other aspects as well as the characters themselves.
Try to take this image as if it were a snip from the final game, and not just something in production.

Feel free to completely rip into this art.  Make me cry if you have to.  I'm not afraid of people pointing out flaws and problems.  (I may reply with comments about my intents and efforts, but I still do honestly consider what is said.)

UPDATE: Here's a sketch of the idle animation for the first character.

Hows it going man!

I think the 2D models you made look really great. They seem very polished and sharp. the coloring for the lighting vs shading is done very well. What did you use to design them?

Well the final images were drawn in inkscape and then tweaked in GIMP.
The actual designing was done on paper.  Just kept drawing them over and over again until i got a design I liked.

Its looking really cool in my opinion , it looks toonish and somewhat original, you could add more texturing into it to look sharper but, its just mine opinion.
