Pixel Art / Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5 Back Cover
« on: March 17, 2009, 03:57:31 am »
I keep meaning to post these and then I keep forgetting... these are three pieces I did for Scott Pilgrim Volume 5's back cover. We arranged them so it'd basically look like a NES box, with the weird curved frames and everything. (You should buy the book and see for yourself :P) It's already been printed so it's kind of too late to change anything, but any feedback would be super helpful for future reference.

The NES palette is used but NES hardware restrictions were not strictly adhered to. Basically we wanted it to look like how people remember 8-bit games, not how they actually were.

Self portraits seem to be the in-thing at the moment. And I won't lie, Souly's card game inspired this. ;)


The colors are pretty much bullocks. Reference pic here.. Have at it!

Pixel Art / Everyone hates Magic Panda!

Been a while since I actually posted any art... these are all from a game idea I was working on for a while, but with the recent Panda craze in the indie gaming scene I decided to let it gestate a while longer.

Scroll down for the new stuff!

Some of you may have seen a few of these monsters from over a year ago. (If anyone remembers that far back  :P)
I put the project back in the oven for a while because I hated the design of the main character.

Now about a billion sketches later I think I came up with something decent, but you can be the judge :D (Still trying to decide on hairstyle, that's why there's two)


Note that in the game the sword will be rotated in code, so it's a little jaggy here.

Animations: (Old design ---> New Design)

Pixel Art / One day I'll finish something

In the meantime, here's a panda.
This will probably work its way into a mockup when I have time.

It's been a while since I posted anything. I felt like doing something small-scale that ISN'T Cave Story-like. Hopefully I succeeded.
It's not much but it'll be a full mockup sometime soon.

I've been trying to learn to rely less out outlines and more on shapes, colors and values to portray forms. Small-scale art really shows the difference, so it's helping me a lot. I included my first pass so you can see the (hopefully) noticeable jump in quality.

First (ugly) pass:
Second pass:
With ridiculously huge wrench:

Characters for another project I've been kicking around in my head.


Style should probably give away what genre I'm going for.
And if you know who these characters are, you get a high five.

[EDIT] For those of you who don't know who Scott Pilgrim is he has a website:
Or you can check out a free sample comic:

Pixel Art / Untitled Project dump (formerly "Four Races" thread)

This here's a sampling of the four different intelligent life forms in a game project I've been working on.

From left to right: Humans, who have sacred religious significance, although they are very rare; Morrolites, philosophers who live in floating cities; The Ghron, peaceful giants who live in harmony with the environment; Chimbies, a technologically advanced, industrial society built on capitalism.

Have at it... I'm not really happy with the design of the Chimbies... too Cave Story-like, and they don't really match the other species, so I think I'm gonna have to go back to the drawing board on that. Any ideas, feel free!


Update on main character: (UPDATE: now animated!)
<-- WIP

This is a piece I've been working on for the weekly competition over at - Still a WIP obviously.
Let the shredding commence.

Pixel Art / Game Mockup WIP (Updated)
« on: April 11, 2007, 02:29:54 am »
Here it is so far; everything's still pretty rough. I hate doing the deep background... meh.

Here's a new one... I had this idea and made a sketch of it on the train today and I think it's 10 times better.

Still a WIP but have at it!
