Personal Project - Shatru

on: August 02, 2013, 05:24:59 am
This is an action adventure game with 3/4 perspective!

I am working on my own game and I need some help and critiques so that my game can have awesome art and so that I can improve as an artist through this project

I am trying to keep this cartoon-ish, basically pokemon like or what you guys say now, in 'bubblegum' style?

Here's what I've made so far:

A place where one of the main NPCs would stay named Oori.



Those purple roofs are there so that if I think purple roof would look better than current gray roof, I'll just switch them. Used Zelda as reference for this.



Stuck at this robot atm. Not sure how to make it look better, more powerful and give it awesome shading like Jinn's Robo HD: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/69298.htm#

Help me out please!

You should make an effort to distinguish walls from "roof", because right now they look too similar and it's confusing.

And you shouldn't pick up on the term "bubblegum style", since it was kind of made up on that thread :lol: (you can use it, but don't expect people to understand you)

Yeah I was feeling that it was blending in a bit too much, but it was going to be separated by shadow. Yet, I've changed the palette and here it is.



I also made some castle's interior tiles and again tried to do it like Zelda. Idk but I think the wall and floor tiles are blending a bit again?

Also, I animated the cauldron:




Some  more castle tiles and a big throne for the king:

Please help me with the throne.. It looks flat atm and Idk how to make it look better. So please help.

Some guys pointed out that the tiles needed some different color so it doesnt blend.

Also changed the color of the robot and gave it a shooting animation:

Metal tends to have a lot of contrast and strong highlights, and reflection, and I'm guessing your robot is metal. Anyways, I was just playing around with colors to give you an idea.
