Moonlander space ship in video game

on: April 04, 2016, 06:13:41 am
Ive got this simple spaceship game online right now:
http://www.chadtech.us/elm-prac-2

And its using a sprite of a spaceship I drew a few years ago. Looking back at it, Im not that happy with it. Its shape is kind of awkward, and while its got a lot of details none of them look very coherent. I tried improving it.



I feel like most recent iteration iteration looks... blobby?

Im drawing landing gear now. Im partial to the upper right most, and lower left most. My biggest problem with the upper right most, is that it looks too flimsy to support the craft. My biggest problem with the lower left most, is that its hard to understand

The one in the upper right is best.  The triangles give it plenty of strength.  The one in the lower left looks too heavy.  Keeping weight down is a huge concern for spaceships.
