2D & 3D / Re: Wing Commander Pixel Art-y Unity Remake
« on: July 09, 2019, 02:32:21 am »
Thanks, pistachio! The UI and cockpit...are renders. No painting.
They are what the what? Not even some manual adjustments on the pixelized result at all? :o
Frankly I am shocked. I could guess that on the ships, given the tech displayed on the pixel rendering thread, but not on the cockpit/UI, no.

Also, are the ship's sprites rendered with a parallel camera or a perspective one? I guess parallel, and you zoom by simple scaling, disregarding perspective to cut on the number of sprites? Awesome stuff.

Lovely stuff, i like that it is a bit like master blaster and you have separate sprites for the vehicle and the pilot. The only two things I can think of is:
1- I am not so found of non outlined sprites, but as you are having dark backgrounds this is probably the best choice.
2- perhaps you could unify the tint of the big objects shading towards the dark blue/teal of the background for more ambience (like you are already doing with the green paint parts). Going more realistically underwater than that would mean filtering the red element of colors, and I don't think that would improve anything, as the lively oranges and red mid tones are looking nice, so maybe just making the shading globally colder would be a good compromise.

I am not great at anatomy analysis but It feels like the arms are a little too short/stubby for him, which might be a stylistic choice, but maybe not. Nothing to add to the animation, I like it a lot :)

One relevant question is the ratio of your tiles, are they 1:1 or is there any foreshortening on the y axis due to the view (4:3, 2:1)? If so, I think you latter version is better because the side waves are shorter than width of the top waves. Even if the tiles are 1:1 the vertical shortening would be a good stylistic choice I think.

Also, are you going to put any classic watery texture on the surface, or going for plain color blue like Zelda with ocasional breaks? I wonder how a jrpg watery texture would interact with animated wavy borders like yours.

Excellent object of study, and good choice of starting simple, narrowing it down to the essential.

Suddenly motivational critique during stressful UI programming brings me back to what I like to do. Thanks :). I'll retouch this.

Thanks Meat! I wasn't sure about the part where the blades glint when rotating out.
Now this one is should be so simple that it is embarrassing, but I am clueless. It is just a spring tile, sonic style, but as you can see the movement is linear. How on earth do you figure how many frames to duplicate, and where to duplicate them, in order make it sine-like as a spring?

Animated tiles consume some serious time even for simple things ::). To start I have a conveyor belt. Is this fooling you? I was trying to give a little hang to the rotating axis to feel like a more machinated movement and less smooth, but I needed the belt itself to move smoothly.

I am agreeing with everything here, including the view, the occlusion after the second row of leaves and the reflected green light on the bark. Is it a regrown pine? I like that it is not the standard cone, but you are probably going to need a number of variations on standard ones to blend this one among them on the scene.

Is this for the 3d-ish thing you posted? :)

I am sincerely impressed and yet mildly offended :-\. Do you guys think these are bots or human spammers?

Ah, damn I can see I tried something that didn't went so clear at this scale :D the lowest curved line is actually his chin, his mouth is the straight line directly below his nose, because he was supposed to look quite old, with a flabby neck and no visible jawline, just the tip of the chin appearing as protuberance, and his mouth is receded like that of a toothless elder not wearing his denture. Hmm, I will rethink his face as a whole, thanks.
