Nia sprite redesign by Dualmask Nia sprite redesign by Dualmask
I changed Nia's attire for the sprite I intend to use in an action-platforming game based on my Beloved Weapon story. Ditching the dress will make animation easier.

The old design:

Updated with colors akin to the old version and shading.

You make a good point about the dress, and it really should enhance the ease of movement, but also the natural sense of movement.

Glad you like! I'm eager to get back to working on her animations. Shelved but not forgotten.

Yeah, I hope to produce a simple arcade action game based on my Nia Black story and character. Shooting, ducking, jumping, that sort of thing.

In answer to your question, you have to be a subscriber, I think. I've been subscribing to dA for so long I don't really remember what non-premium members can't do...

It was painful changing her outfit because I like it more too. But I was having so much trouble animating it that I just figured I'd do something easier.

I actually kind of miss the purple too, actually. Fortunately, changing the colors is really easy. I was more concerned about giving her an easier outfit to animate, hence the change to pants, but I might make her top purple.

It makes me happy to hear Nia has a fan. :) I don't think any of my characters go through as many outfit changes as Nia does, but I had to make her functional in a practical way for the game so I could produce it as easily as possible. She'll still have more elaborate outfits when I display her in other illustrations. :nod:
