New Client Work: Cat Sprite


A housecat character sprite for a client’s visual novel.

This was a bit of a challenge.  All the other character sprites for the game are humanoid and shown from about mid-thigh up, so I needed to come up with a good way to display a small quadruped on screen that wouldn’t make it look like it was just floating in mid-air among the humans.  I opted to put a frame of sorts behind it to show that it’s occupying a different space than the human characters.

(By the way, researching for this character was fun, because it pretty much meant looking at tons of cute cat photos online. 🙂 )
