A few people said they wanted me to do this, so here it is!

Right now, I've been making a new style for my sprites. I've wanted to make a cleaner and more anime type of style for a long time now, and also kind of get away the old SMB3 shading style that I've kept since I started spriting.

Image
This time, I want to do more Mario characters; Webber was remade in this style only for comparison.

Image

I'm also using 8 frames for walking now, instead of 6.
I was going to make more sprites, but I want to know what you think of it so far!

Woah, that's really smooth animation. I agree with Mors, they look quite cute.

I think I don't like the Peach sprite. Something about it seems off. Like, the dress and her hair seem bulky. Her expression is stoic. And maybe the main color of her dress is too dark, it just makes everything about her seem dark. Sorry for the criticism, that's just what I see. ^^

Welcome back! It's nice to see you posting again.

Maybe Peach is just worried about getting kidnapped again, and it's showing on her!

Yeah, I had a lot of trouble making Peach's sprite. I've tried to fix her again, mainly by making her colors brighter like you said.
Image Image Also, I've made Mario's Jump animation.

It's Webber, a DLC character from Don't Starve. He's actually kind of popular.

Also thanks for the welcome guys, I never knew you cared so much :')

As expected, more basic Mario animations: Duck, Brake/Skid/Turn/Whatever, and Swim.

Image

But now here's Luigi
Image
I'm thinking of giving him animations like Mario's, but with his back turned for his main animations to further differentiate him from Mario.

Also Shoutmon is there because I like drawing random characters in this style, so if there's any character you want to see me try to make a sprite of, I'd like to give it a shot.

i feel like luigi's pose being more defined (almost more determined in a way which is fairly out of character) compared to mario's is kinda jarring. on that note both of their arms in the normal standing poses look way too short, and it even gets into some of mario's animations. their anatomy in general feels somewhat off since there seems to be an upward curve in between their legs.

Sorry it took so long, but thanks for the info. It turns out that my back-to-back idea wouldn't actually make sense unless Luigi is literally facing the background or Mario is facing sideways.

Image Image

So now I've changed it to the characters getting into a stance when they come to a stop. This replaces the landing animation from before.
And then there is some more Mario sprites:
Image
Note: the hold sprites were changed after the animation was put together, but honestly, I don't feel that those are much better either.

Really, I don't know what's happened to me recently, but I feel almost like I don't know how to make sprites anymore. I wanted to show my pixel-art and the sprites I was making for my fangame, but everything I've tried to make lately has been coming out so bad that I think I shouldn't even show them here, and I think these new sprites I've just made should be better than this.

Image

It feels like I just can't get it right now; I keep noticing huge errors with everything I make and when I try to fix the problems like this leg error, something still seems a little off. I don't know what's happened to me, but I just hope it comes to an end.

Don't worry, That happens to everyone, you might just be needing a break, or you can post those sprites for us to critque(if you wanna) or just do what you like doing.

I guess it would be best to show some of the stuff I've been having trouble with. It could only help, right?

This tileset I was making for a game goes through more changes than a 3DS does after an update... Okay maybe that's not much, but I tried fixing it up a lot and even just before I showed it here.
Image
The overall style is supposed to be a little darker and more detailed than usual Mario games, but I'm concerned about the tiles looking repetitive when used throughout a level because of that.

The tileset itself is supposed to be a mix of SMB1's overworld and Shroom Ridge from Mario Kart DS.


Image

This is how it currently looks in my game with everything else.

That tileset looks really cool! It makes me think of conventional 16-bit tiles, but with a new coat of paint.

Btw, is that Patty?

Nah, it ain't Patty, it's a powerup for Mario. I'm going with a single playable character this time.

Also, sorry it took so long, I often have trouble finding motivation.
Image
This is basically the completed sheet, but I plan on adding a fire version.
Since Mario's cap and "M" aren't separately colored, it won't be a simple recolor, so I'll have to make sure this part is done first.

Slow work is slow

I'm redesigning the area I was making in that fan game to have one-hundred and two percent more castle

Image
The first-half before the pipe isn't going to be used in the stage anymore.

Image Image
This is how it looks in the game right now.

Also, here are the backgrounds

The tile that Baby Mario is standing on in the second picture looks a lot like a background tile. There's nothing to really discern it from the tree in terms of depth.
Also, Mario's running animation seems to have his head turn the wrong way./
