While most of them are nice, some are pillowshaded, giving the impression that they're flat or something else.

as shown in this image, pillowshading has no lightsource

So yeah.
I also felt that some weapons needed to have a more metallic texture, they're too plastic for me.

Well,if you give me some advice on how too fix it,I'd be quite grateful besides "more metallic"?...if you mean the black guns,well not all guns are silver,look up "H&K Handgun" on Google

I can give you a few tutorials about on how to fix that, it's actually pretty easy.
Mark's Pixel Art Tutorial - Shading
Why it's called Pillowshading

About the "metallic" thing, I don't know if you really meant to the weapons to have that kind of texture but I think they'd be nice if they had this texture

Well I am not going to claim to be a master at sprite editing nor sprite customing however I cannot really say that you're above average at spriting by any means. I mean, well yeah your guns look nice, but there isn't much detail to them. There needs to be more to it to make it, above average.

Well this is an old sheet but that's your opinion but this sheet is not done yet...and hey,these are just basic stuff so yeah until I make more which have more unique designs then it will have detail,so yeah...I am not really surprised someone would think that,if they're so basic

Well obviously it is my opinion, I do not recall stating it as a fact.

Use advice well, don't whine and try to defend your work when you too know it is not as you say it is.

There ALL pillow shaded dude. Few aren't even shaped right. Use references. Look at a picture of a gun and try to sprite it. There is no contrast in the sprite at all. It looks soft. That fan character isn't shaded right ether. Fix that.

Novally that's what I'm talking about the metallic thing. You can see some shines here and there, like a real gun instead of a plastic (toy) one.

@SXR Thanks Dude Very Happy I have it too.

@Leo Yeah it looks most natural dude. At least he's attempting to sprite from scratch.

No, I would have to agree with Novally, you need to go back and re-shade, don't take help for granted. When someone says their opinion, take another look and if you agree, then you should do it. Do you want to improve? Or would you rather settle for something weak, or put the time into making something worth using?

Well...I can't say "re-shade" is the right word for it...since Vic did do the shading on the head...but I think I sorted that out...and yes,I did do this sprite from scratch...Guys,I like the left one better than the right one but what do you think and I agree with Nov...even though I knew about the shading too begin with but I think the problem was Vic shaded way too much




Left: Re-shaded

Right: Not Re-shaded
