Making of 4 scenes for a indie game

on: June 11, 2013, 01:08:48 pm
Hi everyone! I am currently working in 2 indie videogames right now. Even if it is a hard work, I enjoy it a lot because I have freedom doing my pixel art stuff in my own style.

I want to show you 4 scenes from one of that projects. I am learning to work in a way that I can do faster things without losing the initial quality. Something in the middle between speed and quality, not too perfect, not too ugly or undetailed.

I didn't managed well my time in the first scene, so in the next scenes I applied diferent ways to do faster.

1. Centipede express scene: more than 12 hours working on it.



Making of (6 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPOE63lDATo


2. Snow scene: more than 5 hours an a half.



Making of (3 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YfCqnzNOb6s


3. Title Screen: more than 7 hours to finish it with the fixes.



Making of (5 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPrfLeijr3U


4. Fish entrance scene: 4 hours to finish it.



Making of (4 minutes): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6FE1QPSCYs


I know there are lot of things that could be better, but I'm running out of time, we need the demo to be done as soon as possible.

On the third scene, the first tower on the left blends with the base for the tree in the back left.

Needs some way to illustrate separation between the two.

Other than that I cannot spot any glaring errors. That's some pretty awesome work mate.

Thank you so much for your critics. I think you're right. There are still lot of errors in all the scenes, but i am afraid i cant fix them because of the time.

Anyway i will try to be more carefull in the next scenes, i will try to apply any tip I get.

Scene 3 is probably my favorite but the flat blue background could use a little spicing up imo. Nice work all around.

Scene 3 is my favorite, I watched your 'making of' video and it was actually pretty helpful to myself. You're rendering workflow was helpful to see. Also, regarding the 3rd scene, the colors are much more saturated in the image you posted versus the image as seen in the video? Because I thought the colors of scene 3 in the video worked better (weren't so saturated). Great work!

My first impression was a good one.

Love the green brain-ey bits, I'd recolor the legs to separate the two a bit more. And the blue of the body could be a bit less saturated.
