Not feeling it this round.

yes, I'd like to get more detail in here, but I this is kinda where I'm stuck.
This is just my take but try out something like this:

The key is usually less detail, not more actually. Especially at small rez. Just keeping it simple, a lot of core shadows which look nicer and are actually easier to animate. Some small changes to the design in that vein too.

2D & 3D / Re: Wing Commander Pixel Art-y Unity Remake

Without being around for WC1, you've nailed a hand pixeled/index painted vibe. Looks like your last projects were leading into this. And always great to see tributes to Arne's in-depth designs. No time right now but I'm def jumping into this demo soon. Bit nostalgic for arcades now...

What was the process for the UI/cockpit? Straight 2D paint from scratch? 90% 3D model? Or (I'm guessing) a 3D base that was painted over?

BTW the latest hyperlink doesn't work, bronze-age PHP forum doesn't handle anything other than plain URL tags.

Timing of the running needs to be adjusted, now it's more of a fast walk or a stomp.
Running, you use the last step to launch yourself, but I see no midair frames and the vertical timing/bobbing is many frames off here.
ptoing made a diagram of this ages back (running vs walking), in pixel art and even with the same proportions as your fellow here, I'll go digging for this.
Would also push the shading more...

Pixel Art / Re: Tips on Pixeling Liquid for Drinks?
« on: June 24, 2019, 10:36:09 am »
Drinks are basically liquid = reflective material. May be refractive or not, I will just cover reflections...

Especially at low rez, keep it simple. If this means faking the reflections or stripping it down to one shape like I do here (for the steam), do that.
You can also use a recognizable symbol, something along those lines. You have some coffee spilling out of the tank, hopefully you see that as a feature of liquid and there's recognition.
This also applied to the tank = more reflection.
Also changed the shape to keep it looking less like it's falling over, made the E easier to read.

Gonna take a lot of cleanup :huh: Hope I'm right thinking it will be cel-shaded or it'll become a pain in the neck.
The arms silhouette also has some issues. But that's just what I see off the bat. Tweaking the lighting might help here.
Keep on if you can.
