Wecome back to another from scratch pixel art. This post was done for a challenge on Pixel Joint.
The prompt for the challenge was as follows: "Create two sprites of a new and original character - a large version and a small version. The small version of the character should be roughly half the size of the large version of the character."
I struggled with doing a Chun-Li style character at first. I even spent about four hours on a sketch and initial mock up before I lost the passion for the character design. When I moved on to this more playful and cartoon-like character it became much more of a joy to work on. For those interested here is that original design sketch.
