So for references, I have been using the three-quarters view models from Final Fantasy Tactics (I think? At least, that's what someone on twitter told me). And with that I've been able to muddle through that for shirts and cloaks (see other recent images) and chainmail (there's chainmail, silvermail, and boneweave with cool skull pauldrons here).

But when it comes to plate mail, I had intended early on to use the platemail that Avee sprited for the tilesets wayyyy back when. You can see it next to Rana in the middle.

From that platemail base, I quickly whipped up leather armor, bronze armor, iron and enchanted apron, half-plate, the fullplate (Avee's sprite), dragon plate, and magic armor.

But I have to ask - is the shift in perspective a problem? Or at least, a problem worth overcoming by me trying to force them into three-quarters view?
Three-quarters view is unacceptable. For total authenticity, you need five-sixteenths view. If you're not willing to go that extra mile, you might as well go home and be a family man.
I am not skilled enough for this. I am going forward with the straight-forward view for platemail
I was just joking, but I get that. I tried doing 3/4th view before. The cloth mantles looked okay but armor is hard.

Last ditch effort, you could use Tactics Ogre armors as reference/bases.
THOSE are the icons I am using as reference!! not FFTactics

Thanks!!

I find that hard to believe based on what I've seen.

But I also completely understand the "fuck this" energy and going with the simpler and quicker solution. You can always change it later when you have more completed and want to polish anything up, etc. Or not!
Yeah what Roden said.
Keep going with this, this is great ♥.

Ha! I appreciate the kind words, despite the fact that i'll never ever believe them. Anyways, with the front facing platemail style I finished the armor sprites today. I used the tunic 3/4 stylw for the wolf, bear and lion pelt armors
