So I tried your shading tip, ams, but I think it’s pretty apparent everyone that I suck at shading. Those boots I was using were too intricate. So I ended up just doing this.
Logically, this kind of boot actually makes more sense for the character whose main method of transportation is running and jumping. The metal (?) of the old boots would make that rather loud…I guess.
I dunno, I think about these things.
