i kinda agree above that there’s something about the male counterpart portraits that arent quite hitting me even though i am a guy who generally goes after guys in IF games. And just want to say that I only have played the first 2 updates of your demo so I dont actually know who most of theses characters are so I might be talking out of my arse
By looks the Sorcerer combo is great and I love the design but the male counterpart poses seem stiffer to me and less dynamic? If you compare the male and female sorcerer the female one seems like she is more confident by her stance while the male one seems very closed in his body language…he seems more ‘sturdy’ while she seems more outgoing? I dont know if their personalities are supposed to be different or the same but the guy just looks very serious in his facial expression and stance.
Octo also seems stiffer than Octa as well. Like his stance is projecting a confidance like “go on try and get me” but his legs are very stiff while Octa has a bit of a attitude with the tilt of the hips. Her silhouette is less symmetrical so less boring to me.
I both really love Vera and Vero. They both look in there stance and personality to be the same person, I like Veras uptilt of the head…but Veros still looks more serious with a little grimace
On the other hand while we get to the Half Orc rangers, the female one looks to be the more serious one, and while her pose is dynamic and I think the positioning of the arms are great and the twist of the torso the legs feel like the pose could have been stretched more? because I think the male conterpart has a bit more ‘personality’, he seems a bit clumsy and like hes concentrating hard to aim the bow.
I cant really complain about the posing of the Elf Wizard duo, only that I think Llorick would look better with a longer haircut but thats just going by my tastes, but the haircut itself isnt bad, just a bit generic. But hey if their personality is more prim and serious than a generic hairstyle would fit them
I LOVE Trudi, but again Rudi’s legs look stiff.
Needless to say the Art itself is excellent, but I feel like the male counterpart poses could have been pushed a bit more? And maybe thats why theyre not hitting me as much as the female counterparts. Be free to completely ignore what I just said above, I just kinda started rambling
