    I don't know if this is the right place for this but I don't encountered any better place.

    My question is what is the better character style on your opinion? (Check attached screenshot)

    Ps: For the taller character (looks likeRMXP character style), I will have to make tiles a bit smaller.

    I really like the taller one but the one in the middle isn't bad either.

    I like the middle one.

    I never liked XP's Tall chars, and MV's chibis while cute, make me long for the good old days of RM2k3's style.

    I prefer the middle one. The belt on the tall one seems too high up, and it's hard to take the smallest one seriously with such a giant hat, lol.  :rswt:

    Depends on the overall mood you want your game to give off, but as for opinion, I like the middle one. The tall one is good too, it just small. The super chibi is cute, but if the hat was somehow smaller or something, maybe it would look better (better as in less cute, more serious).

    I have to agree that it really depends on the setting of the game. Honestly I don't feel the darker themes of the SF enemies and such really fit the chibi-ish character design, but for a much more light hearted story i'd likely prefer the middle one.

    Sorry for the double post.

     

    I made a new test playing with different characters and art styles. What you guys think of this style? Colors and general feel. The right character is a new test of proportions, the left one is the one that was on the middle. I resized the vehicle too, it was so small...

    Ps: I don't mind to have perfect pixels at all, I also like the "bit blurred" digital painting feel.

    I definitely prefer the tall one. I've never been a fan of the whole big headed chibi look, so I really appreciate chararcter art that breaks that mold.

    I actually like the one on the right myself. I don't like the taller character types.

    Hey guys thank you for your opinions. I think I'm pretty satisfied with the character proportions and also art style.

    ​Left side is the stock graphics, right side is with edited colors and characters proportions.

    @nightwalker:

    The colours look really vibrant with a nice contrast! I certainly like it more than the default graphics!

    The new characters are great as well. To bad they cannot be shared like this.
