update Another update for his design. I changed his pants again with a more detailed flower pattern, and repeated the same flowers on his coat. I also changed his shoes
and gave everything overall more details. I also changed his expression, eventhough I liked the sleepy look it didn't really fit the character well.
here is his previous sprite :
updated design- went back to the sleeveless coat design and removed the belts on the pants to make way of a flower design</sub>
flowers often are used in ledehosen (traditional German pants) and the pants are suppose to slightly reference them (since the Glockenspiel, the instrument this character is suppose to represent, is German as well). The flowers are actually blossoms, to reference the fact that Glockenspiel is also Asian (the actual origin of the Glockenspiel are unknown, we know it's partly German due to the name but some also speculate it's from somewhere in Asia). Glockenspiel is made of metal, which is why his outfit is shiny like that as well. He may change again over time, but as of now this is going to be used as a final sprite for the project.</sub>
