I was playing Samurai Showdown 5 the other day (IMO, it is inferior to 4), when I randomly decided to draw up one of my own characters in a similar art style.
I was thinking about animating an idle state or something, but I wanted to make sure everything looks right before I continue. Unfortunately, I know not everything looks right. The stance I chose places the left arm and shoulder in an awkward position that still looks wonky to me. I've also redrawn the arm muscles several different ways, and they never come out quite the way I'd like. I have a couple ideas of how I might improve them, but I'm not certain whether they'll work out, so I thought I'd go ahead and get some external feedback.
I probably need to work on the rest of the picture as well (I just noticed that I even missed some of the transparency on the background...), but I'm most concerned with the arms and muscle structure right now. Thanks for looking =).
