    Alright! Good to see a sprite MBR. Maybe I'll set up my own page again.

    Lets get down to business.

    Lewis
    I like the way you detail your sprites but I think overall you focus on the detail too much. These clothes feel pretty flat in comparison to Hatim's. Though you definitely got the upper hand in how the sprite looks overall, I'm also not a fan of the palette choice on the helmet it feels pretty dull and again, on the back it feels pretty flat.

    Hatim
    I like the way the hoodie was shaded for the most part but there's a continuity error between front and back that bothers me. Other than that its a small detail. Unlike Lewis' pants, yours have shading to give them shape but almost no detail to them at all. Not to mention the shading is straight down the middle for the pants on the back pose which just feels lazy, remember that the lighting is always topleft no matter what.

    Overall, I'm going to have to give it to Lewis for detail. But Hatim could have easily taken it if his sprite was better executed because its much closer to maple style.

    Lewis:your palettes would look great if they weren't on maple sprites.It completely disfigured your piece and ruining the simple shading style.

    Hatim:Yeah I don't know what is there to say about yours.

    Mah bb Lewis for that detail tho. Hatim's sprites were almost as good, just felt plain to me in terms of design tho. Good job to you both!

    I like the details on Lewis' helmet too. Very complex and ambitious.

    Unfortunately, as great as it is, I'm going to have to vote for Hatim. No incredibly constructive reason really, I'm just all for that hoodie

    I enjoyed Lewis's work a lot, but the way Lewis does his shading, it doesn't feel
    Like maple. It works, but when it's put into animation, it would certainly get annoying.
    The design is amazing tho, nice use of colors.

    Hatim, I liked urs a lot because that's similar to how I dress in real life. I liked the deisgn land looks.
    Something about the wrinkles or the dark shades, makes it look better. The back,
    The hood was kind of weird.

    Votes to Hatim. Hardest desicion I had to make in quite a long time.

    Lewis has my vote for originality in design, (its not everyday you see a prison set with some eyegear thing) but one thing I don't get is the sleeve part ? It juts out and ??
    Also minus points for not shading the bald head in accordance to the lightsource tsk.

    Hatim, you've got a simpler idea going on, but IMO it's too simple and generic at best.
    The shading is kinda weird and all over the place and the hoodie from the front view looks flat and small, whereas compared to the backview, it's real big ?
    Consistency mang.

    i voted for Lewis, his shading, lightsource, details and his clothes seemed more consistent than Hatim's.

    Hatim's clothes on the front differs a lot and loses quality in my opinion on it's back view, it also kind of differs from it because of the hoodie's placement, it looks quite off. In it's front view, the hoodie's more "up" while in the back view it's more slouched. Also, the white circle on it's back should be wider and not at the center of the hoodie, as it doesn't appear to be white on the top of the hoodie in the front view.
