Pixel Art / Heads [WIP]
« on: June 25, 2007, 10:53:51 am »
I've been working on a game with my friend in Australia for a while called 4Heads. It was a silly idea that has received a good deal of support from other people. We only had a demo and we are now finishing the game. It should be out in a month.
A few people have been giving us crap about the cuteness of our games and how they lack any level of seriousness so we're planning on making a slightly serious game That means we'll try to avoid all those vibrant bright colors, use some more detail and have a slightly realistic "world". We've discussed making a more action oriented game that would still be in the same "world". Since it will involves more action we'll need some attack animations. I thought since these creatures don't have arms they'll have to smash with their heads or head butt other creatures. I made a quick animation and it turned out badly.
It should have named it flaccid.gif because it... looks flaccid.
Here's a good picture of what they look like:

I was never really good at animator and always avoided it (didn't help) so now I'm asking for some help from you.

Here are some of my sketches, smash animation was drawn out at the bottom right.

Pixel Art / A pixel artist in need.

I have a vacation this week and I really want to improve as a pixel artist. Hopefully I can get help from you guys. Here are a few things I'm going that need some work.

I don't think the sides are very good and I need to do something with the arms in the walking animation. Are the cartoony legs far apart not cool? I think I'll go with a more realistic "style". Any idea how I could make the face look real instead of how it is.  Thank you ahead of time I really appreciate this.

Pixel Art / RPG Sprite and Tileset WIP
« on: January 26, 2007, 06:00:49 am »
:D I'm working on a little project mainly to improve my pixel pushing, I'd like some advice because these are giving me a lot more trouble than I think they should. These are WIPs.

This is the sprite for a weird alieny character. You can see what I had before and what it is now.

I also need some help with tilesets. The grass looks a little off, maybe it's the color, and it took me a long time. For the most part I think it's acceptable. The cobble stone probably needs another color and the space between each stone seems ugly.
Thank you ahead of time. I really hope I can improve these with your help.

Pixel Art / Just some quick help please

So I made this for a game:

I think the pants came out decently and the rest is a bit less decently. Any tips on what I could do to fix this? Or any tips on what I could do to avoid making the same mistakes?
