Just thought I would share this - my mc sprite development:

1: bad but workable sketch ->
2: god-what-have-I-done ugly copypasta of undertale ->
3: cheap newgrounds-like sprite ->

'sup!
I'm Henrique Alves, currently working with edu-games on a small brazillian company, indie-dev on my free time while trying to survive the last bits of Computer Engineer undergrad.
Also, I love open-source tools - using Phaser framework in my current job and creating my personal projects in Godot. Created some useful git stuff, you can check on henriquelalves.github.io/godot.
