Highlighted some conflicts with a red outline

01. top menu needs more contrast from the overall game
02. characters' hair in comparison to 
03. the power line looks strange
04. the incomplete sign on the bus stop (?) takes away focus from everything else -- needs less bright colors

Also all the dark colors (gray buildings, dull green jacket) looks muddled together
Hence a reason the reshading on u/Bak's building looks cleaner

Not exactly sure of what is wanted here but made edits, although not perfect

For reference was considering this to be the overall style it fits, or is similar to

Numero dos


Proportions are off, some parts better, some parts worse. Weapon is heavily WIP. I'll be releasing the 3rd then going back and polishing all of em. Tips on how to make these more consistent still appreciated.

Thanks man!
Joining polycount is something I've been considering for a long long time now, maybe since before the 8th gen. I know a few other guys hang about there too, ptoing is one.
I actually have some amateur 3d exp under my belt (not counting 3ds Max which I messed with in 2009), maybe 2 years of serious improvement, and my skills still ain't jack compared to a guy like pior's :lol:
For me low poly is where it's at though, it doesn't get much love and it's a good crossover to the higher spec stuff I've been doing.
If there's enough traction for that at polycount I'll look into joining.

Cool. Maybe less gloss on the edges of the bricks where it's worn or chipped, something about the overall shininess there gives it a plastic/lego vibe at grazing angles.

On texturing software, I've heard good things about quixel suite as well, albeit it has a pretty different workflow. Have you or your coworkers tried it out?
BTW, very late thanks for implementing the icons, more thanks for the changes to them. Subtle but it really adds that extra 10% to the extra 10%.

So I have been working for about a week on other stuff in the project and decided I would share. I didn't see meat's version until now. I must say it looks really cool, it is just not what I was going for. I will definitely use the techniques shown to give a better separation though.

Again this doesn't have the added lighting from the engine. I will be sure to post when I get that update. I also plan to have animations on the lights and on a lot of the other features so it will look a lot more complete.

Here is a picture of the menu in progress. I will be adding an animation over the whole thing to make it look like a hologram. So if anyone has tips on that I will definitely take them.

The anatomy depends entirely upon the style of the game. It could work in a cartoonish style. I'd recommend eliminating the jagged edges on the diagonal outline sections where you've doubled up pixels, though.

i'm trying to block things out and refine rather than working only with lines. also trying to use a palette that makes me uncomfortable.
Thanks guys for the responses! I just want to provide a quick follow up to my original post.


I tried out Allegro Sprite Editor and it's great. The earliest version I could get working was v0.6.1. Even though it's an older version, there is definitely an improvement over Character Maker.


Thanks for the GrafX2 suggestion. I think I might like this better than ASE, but I need more time to test each of them out.


That's cool that you helped develop GrafX2. It's a really nice program. Yes version 2.4 works, and also the WIP version of 2.5 works.  Also thanks for that long list of other useful paint programs.
