Hello, longtime TIGS creeper here. I've been flirting with an idea for a game with a very particular art style. Being a developer my ability to produce art isn't exactly legendary, so i was wanted to check that i'm along the right track before i end up with something abysmal.

The art style i'm going for is a layered vector art look demonstrated below:



and my attempt:


please let me know whether developing characters in this direction will result is art similar to that shown above

hey!,it's the right direction,i think maybe a more looser style could help.like don't be afraid to use more curves/lines.

I unfortunately can't see your attempt, but some general good advice about illustrating in vector is to start with some loose sketches (on paper usually) and use those as a skeleton to build your design. It's hard to retain a lot of character (like in that GoT example) when you jump right into illustrator, or whatever app you're using.
