New Character Sprites

I completely recreated the rider (or stand-alone character) for the Tale sprite graphic. The major goal was to represent both genders equally in the game. On the way, I created several hair styles and facial expressions, articulated the arms into three positions for each gender, and created a lot of layers. Here's the breakdown:

  • male or female
  • round, oval, or angular head
  • arms out stretched, bent for holding shields and such, or hanging at your sides
  • shirt with detachable sleeves
  • pants or shorts
  • shoes, boots, or sandals
  • buckler, roman shield, hero shield
  • long or short, lobed or round ears
  • 11 hair styles
  • 14 facial expressions

Here are a couple samples of riders:
