I also really like your art pages and the great designs. Have you done any original sci-fi character drawings or sprites that you are happy for other people to use btw? I've still got a turn based sci-fi game that needs good designs and sprites! ;D

Why don't you read whar Arne has to say on the subject on his website?

Ah, I didn't know about that profile. A shame he won't be able to help with free stuff though.

I don't know how much of that FAQ I believe. I bet that under his crusty exterior lies the heart of a benefactor.

Maybe you should just ask him very nicely for help on your project. As a sign of goodwill, you could give him a gift of $60 per hour. That way he can tell that you want to be friends.

And who wouldn't want to help out a friend?

I really like to work with game stuff, but I have to give stuff close to me priority, because it's more fun and I don't really need money atm.

Kagirinaki tatakai / Endless war is a rather obscure but interesting old game. Three weapons: Laser, Rocket, Grenade, the latter destroys terrain but uses ammo. The enemies have pretty varied behavior.



I just surrendered to the wild use of colors. Could be kind of fun and toyish.

I like the rubbery yellow spider-bot thing best.

I love the way you add detail but preserve simplicity. You read a lot of personality into the generally stiff sprites. The originals succeed with the distinctive sprite silhouettes, a necessity with the old specs.

Your sprites seem overly rounded out -- to the point of being plush toys. Adding a few sharp corners would help greatly. It would give the shapes more contrast and add more visual interest. Maybe sharpen up some of the missiles, too.

Great work!

This thread is too inspirational to be left for dead.

Did a little Bubble Bobble construction study based on the original box art and the in-game sprite (sprites, box art):


Mind has a bit of trouble imagining the volumes which is certainly in part due to lack of construction skill but I also believe some of it is because the original artwork does not seem to have too much working structure either, so I had to invent some that was not in there. My goal for this was to find volumes which might work when modeled out in 3D (which I will attempt next because I'm highly unsure about the back view and how the legs/feet would work out... also, the face and the cheeks seem very strange in the original design but I tried to keep the whole flat-face-with-bulging-cheeks-and-almost-no-lips design as much as possible).

You know that someone do a good job when you distractly see a picture and say "Wait. Have i just seen a Journey to Silius enemy?"

From pixel to draw, my memory did not noticed the difference. 'Cuz that was exactly what those pixel drawn into my childy eyes.

Yep.
Today i saw a really good job.
I am surprised. (both from the human brain and the drawing XD)

My first complete game! ^ ^
