Last week I made Dean and Sam sprites. Sprites are the little pixelly people who walk around in a video game. This week I made a Cas sprite, and imported all of them into the game to see how they look. Yay! Progress!

So let's look at Castiel's Purgatory outfit: http://i.imgur.com/tb4yOTO.png
And his hair: http://i.imgur.com/HdzAc2V.png http://i.imgur.com/iDMLpms.png

Now, poor xoferew does not really know how to do the animation of walking in a tiny trenchcoat but without doing extensive research I'm going to guess that when one steps forward the coat moves out of the way of that leg. It doesn't necessarily work as in real life because these sprites are a weird proportion with really short legs so who knows. How about this? http://i.imgur.com/WyNwNjz.gif

I think he's pretty cute but I need to go back and improve that dirt on the back of his coat. Some day. Just to remind people, I am adapting the basic people who come with the game. I don't want to take credit for drawing these sprites from scratch. This sprite already had a jacket and I just elongated it and frowned and grumbled at it. I did the hair from scratch and I tweaked his eyes to be droopy in an Adorable Screwup fashion. I don't like their faces to be identical but there's only so much that can be done. Sam has a bit of a tan for some reason. Because he goes out jogging in the sunshine every day?

Now! Let's put the guys on the map that I made a couple weeks ago and see how they look. Sam has a new jacket today. He is now looking less Fourth of July and more Christmas Elf. http://i.imgur.com/F0cykBx.png http://i.imgur.com/yXzcBlt.png
Here is everyone's scuffed up version: http://i.imgur.com/Wzr8M7H.png and the more colorful original pic: http://i.imgur.com/tGdZtkD.png
All of these pics look fuzzy because I've blown them up a bit. http://i.imgur.com/4qswQGk.png Here are the boys standing in some bushes. :D

What will I work on next? I can't decide. The car? Some non-Purgatory scenery for Sam to run around in looking for Dean? Some monsters to fight? Or I could start tackling the game mechanics. Hmmm...

Thanks for reading. Suggestions welcome!

I like the green jacket! And not to be a pain in the ass, but should Sam's hair be a tiny bit longer? :D Overall, however, I think they're pretty good likenesses for sprites that can't be customized too much. Nice job!

Thanks! I think the problem is not that it's too short but that the hair below the ears blends into the background because it's nearly the same color. So maybe I need to outline it with black more.

You think it still needs to be longer?
Here I've tried to make it not longer but wider, and with a darker outline. Is this better?

Ah, now I see the longer hair. Yep, my old eyes just couldn't distinguish it from the background. Perfecto!

This feedback is super helpful because it's easy to just "see" what I expect to see. And I'll work on his hair some more this week. If I can give Cas different graphics for the left and right side views of his hair, Sam deserves the same. This week can be "fixing stuff up rather than rushing on to the next shiny thing" week. ^_^

xoferew's bathroom is not getting much cleaner, but Sam's hair is getting fluffier. And what was I thinking, I forgot the sideburns before!

There is still a lot of room for improvement though. Okay, seriously. Housework time now. *Drags self away from keyboard.*

I am really liking Sam's hair now, but under no circumstances are you allowed to give him the S 7 sideburns! Or, as that demon with the curlers called them, "smuttonchops." That really cracked me up the way she said it.

So, this is not a finished animation so much as a proof of concept...

It would read better if Sam would wear a neon pink jacket.
Sam: "There is no way in hell I'm wearing a neon pink jacket."
xoferew: "Okay, okay, geez. You could be Team Free Will But Still Amenable To Suggestions, you know."
Dean: "You're worried people won't be able to see us hugging clearly enough? We don't care. This isn't some kind of show for your entertainment."

I'm puzzling over how you're going to show the single man tear. If you can do that, I'll be very impressed. But thanks for the hug! That makes three this season!

Come on, X. When are you going to finish the game?
