my mistake; i'd assumed it was a crescent moon :P  i was thinking of the little ring of light left around the edges when you get a full eclipse, like this one - https://c.tadst.com/gfx/750w/solar-eclipse.jpg?1

Ooh, fss, this is a slightly different texturing style than I've seen of you before! Looks really cool, and great modelling as always

So does this mean you are still progressing with the game?
(I really want to play it!!!).

Yes I'm still making this game, and now it's going to be made better than ever.

Though atm I'm only just starting to program for this project.

But this time I'm doing it in a way to make it super easy to add characters. Should be pretty ergonomic.

fss, I gotta say, you (or you guys, if that's cool) are TALENTED. Is your art style at all inspired by RWBY?

Thanks, though personally I like to attribute my results up to hard-work rather than talent.

Yes in fact I was going into a pretty detailed study of the RWBY models and shading techniques.

Since many people pointed it out, I changed the depictions of the sun and moon on her shirt to a more minimalistic look:

I made some little tweaks But I think they made a huge difference. There is now depth to her hat, and her sleeves are more rounded out:

The sleeves look nicer but I think the rim on the hat should stay thin just because that's how ringed planets appear from far away (eg Saturn). Other than that it looks great.

Think the thickened rings could be a little thinner perhaps now that cooldude mentions it. Somewhere in between the two examples...and maybe pull her socks up to her knees.....laughs.
