[WIP] The dead will walk

on: June 16, 2012, 07:01:18 pm
I decided to try something other than a tileset and worked my way towards this, a sort of game screen (truth be told I dont know what its is...).

PixelJoint proved to be too distracted on other threads, so I decided i'd try to ask fro C&C in the lovely community of Pixelation!

Heres the work so far:

this was how it started:

and this is the current one:

Dont be afraid to completely tear it apart!

I really like the stylish cityscape, especially the "beveled" look of the clouds. The text has a lot of character too, but some characters could be more consistent with eachother - "i" is definitely too fat and the characteristic parts of "w" are a bit too skinny.

The character/skelleton is unfinished(or he seem so, at least) - since the light source is to the top right, the front of the skull and chest should be a lot darker. The side of the skull looks weird too - anatomy wise, and lighting wise too - the dark shadows give me an impression that the skull "curves inwards" a bit too much.

Quick google search for some ref material:

Since it's still wip, comment about a lot of empty space may seem unnecessary - you have a lot of space for more undead! ;)

Hope it helps, I like the gameboy vibe it gives very much!
