After my last tutorial with Alan, we came to the conclusion that I needed to build upon a suitable platform in order to give the character logical meaning. He suggested I look into platform games involving multiple sprites of the same character in order to form my character basis. After looking at characters from the Legoland franchise of games, I spread my search and found other sources of interest in this category.
Lego Indiana Jones
Unown; Pokemon Series
The Patapon & Unown characters interest me the most. They are more interesting and more what I am looking for in terms of base structure.
