    I think the eyes are fine already, but did some comparing to the original sprite for fun..

I took the current HD picture of Tails in Gimp and did a very quick mockup. So I'm sorry that it's not one of the programs used to fix whatever you guys want, but I tried to warp it so he looked more similar to the in-game graphic. Rounder belly, eyes slightly wider, pupils stretched to look larger, arm looks more relaxed so he doesn't look like an excited Spongebob. The hands are still too big, though (I think they are, anyway).

    I did the mockup because the idle graphics of him in the past and now were really bugging me. Hopefully someone else will be able to make the changes, since I don't have the programs to do it. Just want to get an idea across.

    The eyes/pupils are definitely heading in the right direction.
    And that belly is perfect!

    I think those bigger eyes need a better shine on them. There isn't hardly one at all right now.
     
  4. I preferred the eyes smaller, to be honest.

    Now we're talking, that's the first one I've actually liked... but he looks to much like a robot now(cut of his head, make his eyes blurry and you have a dead Tails).

    What we need to do is make it glow like Sonic's pupil and Eggman's glasses.

    I do believe we have achieved ocular perfection.
     
  11. Indeed. It's perfect. Now it just needs vectorisation.

    I actually just edited the .ai file, so it's already in vector format. ;) But yeah, if you guys don't like the shape of the highlight I can change it a bit. I made it kinda curved to make it appear that his eyes aren't flat. I actually don't really like his left eye, it just looks a bit funky for some reason. I think I'll mess with that a bit real quick.

    That's the one I think aswell. It needs a little move to the right.

    This is a rough edit in paint but this is what im on about it needs shifting over. But other than that it's perfect.
