Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.

I haven't played most of them yet. I've been going through the King's Quest games this summer and I'm onto KQ6 now (I had watched others play them but had not played them myself.) I picked up the Sierra bundle that's on sale right now, so I'll get to the other series eventually.
i have played them. And it is worth to play them! :D

I use more Instagram. In the beginning it was hard to find followers to have more likes. I spent a lot of time to have 200-300 followers. But I asked for help to aplication. Now my followers increased a lot, there are even people that are asking me to promote their products, so it is a big plus for me because thanks to instagram I started to do money.

Thanks, Katie.  Well, we ultimately decided to have our animator focus on animations for now, and save the portraits for the game's polishing phase.  I'll relay this info to the crew though.

Here's the followup to the previous one with Sully.  I had a more appropriate pose in mind for him in this one, but he wasn't easy to pose.  But then again, neither was Erica, otherwise I probably would've shown her putting her shoes back on.  And once again, I apologize for the pixelated bits.  I'm not sure what's causing this.

While escaping from the clutches of the terrorist group, Erica slips and falls - her gun sliding out of her reach.  She looks up to see an armed terrorist point his weapon at her, but is then startled by the sound of a shot ringing out behind her and the sight of said terrorist falling backwards.  She spins onto her back, to find...

Erica: "Sully!"

Sully: "Hey, Erica!  Boy, did I pick the right anonymous tip to investigate!

*He puts his gun away and helps her up.*

You alright?"

Erica: "My feet have met friendlier floors, but yeah.  So, a 'little birdy' told you I was here, huh?"

Sully: "Well, they didn't mention that little detail, but yeah.  I had no idea you were here, until I found what I assumed were your shoes outside.

*He glances down at her bare feet.*

"Which, err... reminds me..."

*He pulls out her shoes and hands them to her.  She smirks and gratefully takes them back.*

Erica: *putting them back on* "You assumed correct.  Thanks.  No... thanks aren't enough.  I owe you my life, Jared."

Sully: "Heh... well... I'd settle for a coffee date.  This Friday at noon?"

Erica: "That... could be arranged.  First though... could we get out of here?"

Sully: "Ah, right, right. 

*He pulls out his phone, as they exit.* 

"This is Agent Sullivan.  I've found Agent Reed.  ...Yeah, she's okay."

So glad to hear the game is still being worked on! That's awesome and I wish you the best of luck :)

This is some promising 3D work too. Not sure if you're still looking for feedback, but in case you are--

I agree about the pink ribbons, strongly.

The 'uncanny valley' look is much improved in the 2nd pic, but what strikes me is how young she looks. In KQ4, Rosella is 17 years old. This character looks like she's 12 at the oldest to me. It's a few things contributing to this--her face is young, still more round than not; her cheekbones aren't really highlighted, which would be the easiest way to age her up. A dash of light pink on the cheekbones, a la blush/rouge, would help that a little. Maybe lining the eyes a little too, a la eyeliner. (KQ characters have had the appearance of wearing make-up before, if that's a concern, but you wouldn't need a lot of this to give her some age. We're not talking full make-up counter treatment ;)). Also, the little we see of her outfit in the portrait looks like a young style (more like a shirt and overalls look, since it cuts off before we see any of the bodice)

But mostly, it's the hairstyle makes her look very young. The braided pigtails is a very 'young' style--the center part, the hair pulled very tightly into the braids. The ribbons add to it, making them pink adds to it even more. It looks like the hairstyle of a little girl, not a teenager. Her bangs kind of add to this as well, but less so. With a different style to the rest of her hair, the bangs wouldn't have the same effect, but in combination, it adds to the young look.

I know I'm applying modern standards to this, but so will your players.

My suggestion would be to loose the bows, and then some combination of: loosen the braids (this isn't a great example, but you get the idea), add hair that isn't in the braids (a la her KQ6 portrait), and/or give her an off-center part.

Or--and this is sort of what all that gets at--give it some more personalized style, make it look unique. Some great examples of this are Katniss's signature wraparound side-braid, Daenerys's evolving intricate braids, and the many, many, braid styles of Princess/General Leia!

That's maybe more detail than you wanted :) But I hope having examples of what I'm talking about helps as well. I know animating hair can be a huge pain, and it's a volunteer project, so find what works best for your team and what you can do, of course. I would most strongly suggest getting rid of the bows, though.

Again, I do think this looks good and it's great to hear you're still going at it! Can't wait to see/hear more about the game's progress. :)
