Have to say it's the best sprite I saw from you
You have a nice start there, but I think you need more attention on perspective and painting.

Did a quick edit, hope it helps for study purposes.

Fixed most of the perspective errors, worked on a more dynamic pose and improved volume & painting overall.

There's still several things to improve but they're minimal for now.


Keep walking!! ;)

Awesome sprites! I saw a lot of your flat outfits, I like those skins for DBLOTS very much.
Is that Brolly one of your first izometric outfit? I never saw you drawing izometric, but it is cool!

I'm not a spriter, but as a average person would say that Leshrot fixes are "controversial".
Perspectiv and pose fixed are ok, new chest is awesome, but cloths seems to be too dark on the sides and too bright inside. For me it don't look like clothes from fabric/cotton, but more like some plastic/rubber material.
It would say that something between Royalz and Leshrot version of Brolly would be perfect for DB style :D
PS. I respect the work of you both very much.

Royalz - good luck with improvement!

Thank you for your time spent doing that. It actually looks better proportion and perspective-wise, however, i still don't like the way you shade, so i'm going to stick with my "style". I do, however, like the way you did his chest and arms' lightning, that will help a lot. Thanks again!

Sorry, but what you're doing isn't a style, nor shading.

For example: I took this broly sprite (right) from the internet as an example.

Your current "style" (left) consist on base color placement, scratches and a few dithering, we can't call that shading because it's flat.
A good enough shading works like on the right image.

Also using "style" as an excuse won't get you anywhere. You need to learn the fundamentals before creating your own style.

In my opinion Royalz is spriting more anime style which is prefect style for dragon ball projects or similar projects. You shading style gives that tibia/old look which is not good opinion for that style servers, i find your shading really dark and not even close to anime look. So i support Royalz style

That's actually the exact opposite, lmfao. Leshrot's Broly is way more cartoonish than Royalz's.
Royalz's Broly looks like he resized it at least two times larger than it's drawing size. When I first saw it I actually thought there was some dirt on my screen, before realizing what I was actually looking at.


Royalz be like

Okay, Mr. "Supreme Spriter", i'm gonna stop you right there, because everything you say is so wrong on SO many levels.
First of all, a "style" you do isnt a style, nor a shading as well, it's not even a pixel art, because a program does everything for you, so actually you have no rights to criticize me for either of those things.
Secondly, the way i do isometric for now may consist on base color placement and other things you've mentioned, but that's how you actually learn and polish your ways of doing pixel art. That's how it all works without any Photoshop brushes, you have to learn to do it yourself and every idiot can use Photoshop to do 80% of the job for him.
Lastly, i'm not using style as my excuse and actually sticking to it and polishing it, as i mentioned before, WILL get me even further than you can ever be.

That's all from me, im grateful for your tips, but i will be even more if you don't post here no more with that attitude.

That's how pixelart works, mate. And it's funny you added that outfit, let's see which one is more blurry.

Let me correct you, *Leshrot be like

Thanks. <3

well RoyalzBHO every spriter has your own way of doing your art, but i see you didn't understand what Leshrot meant with his edit

the Broly have problems with the AA, shade, proportions and anatomy in general that need to be fixed and all of us know Leshrot only fixed a few problems and made it more attractive, but with his own style. the point we should focus is you have to analyze all the tips and improve the outfit with your own style and paint!

(other point i have to say is Lesh doesn't want you doing your sprites with brush or automactic AA, but your pixel art with better paiting applications and he only showed an example for you)

Never said it was, I do sprites.

Base color placement is okay. Scratch and put pixels randomly for dithering and cheer to it work right isn't.

You also should try PS then.
People also thought it was easy on my stream, but after I received some PMs asking for help:

The criticizes are not about style, are about fundamentals. There's a lot variations of styles, but let's say these are the "4 main".


You need more knowledge/skills to do a realistic portrait than do a simpson character. I guess that's clear for you.
In sprites we kinda have that divison too. My criticizes AREN'T towards style, it's about fundamentals, learn it so more and better you'll be able to do.

Check Darqfelenor's Broly, it's a clear try to be "anime style" but it have a lot of errors of on design and painting, not on style, but technique.


That's all from me, im grateful for your tips, but i will be even more if you don't post here no more with that attitude.
I hope you understand and stop taking it personally. I can understand that maybe you're doing sprites for some years and is hard to accept you may have kept doing mistakes like this.

I dont know about others but Leshrot sprite has a lot of problems to. I'm not a spriter but i can tell whats wrong with his sprite.

So one think that makes it different between these two sprites is Leshrot sprite has worst anatomy i have ever seen in humans. But sure it has "better" shading. Lets talk why i see these three problems:
1. Arm - I never seen biceps with the same length of shoulder
2. Leg - As you can see his leg, it has so much problems that i dont know where to start how can you even draw such a stupid leg view. In school i worked with 3d models so i dont know how you managed to draw such a non sense. (If you cant see i recommend to zoom in)
3. This left part is so messed up i dont know how can you see it as a good anatomy of human.
When you sprite isometric sprites imagine your sprite from all angles.

In my opinion sprites that are dragon ball style or etc should stay flat not isometric. If you want to draw isometric sprites that are related with dragon ball i recommend to learn how to shade in anime style because Leshrot and Royalz shading is wrong one is to light and second one is to dark which is not even close to correct shading style.

Everyone can hate me but its okay i said what i think :) good luck with other works.
