thanks xion <3

and yah fawel, I was aware of that topic ;)
I assume you're "athena", if so, I hate it when cocopuffs makes demos like that :P
I just made a recording, showing off one of the hit combos:

a pretty easy combo if you set it up before hand, it's like that at the moment just for testing purposes though ;)

That superfluous B&W flash is a bit...jarring...and...annoying.
But I like the idea of comboing enemies into enemies.

it's a bit quicker in game, I think each flash is only 5 frames.. and the last 3 arent too visible, plus most combos wont be that close together, so you wont get such a constant flash going on very often

Here's something I figured some of you might enjoy...



-01- In the Beginning (3:29)
-02- Eden (3:47)
-03- Noah and the Flood (3:02)
-04- Climbing the Ziggurat (5:11)
-05- The Exodus (6:54)

This is the first half of a project I've been working on for the past few weeks. Just a fun electronic/chiptune thinger I fit in to distract me from my every day responsibilities. I'm still open to messing around with the songs, so any feedback would be appreciated. I'm influenced heavily by prog rock, jazz fusion, and romantic/baroque period music, so if you like any of that check it out.

I rarely do pixel art anymore, unfortunately. Most of the stuff that I did in the past you can find here: http://jaytholen.net/gallery.html

 :huh: Helm... are there some drugs I should be taking or art ninjas to study under because that is just sincerely awesome.

Seriously... what would you suggest to somebody to get better who's already drawing pretty near constantly?

Are you drawing constantly? Wow, I'm not drawing constantly. How old are you, and what do you want to achieve?

Focused practise for 2 hours a week beats aimless doodling for 2 hours a day, I find. Buy an art book and go through all the basics, how to draw objects under light, from simpler forms to more complex, perspective and anatomy.
