Very cool indeed.

I personally like the sidescroller the best, though I do agree with Flame about the slimes.  They just look very out of place..  The yellow background could use a more interesting silhouette as well, some variety in height would look a bit more appealing.. perhaps even throw in one more inbetween layer/colour of the background hills to add a little more depth.

The pirates one is very impressive as well.. the skull cave/island really reminds me of those old Mighty Max toys.  :lol:

I'm envious of how clean everything is and how well it reads.

It is always nice to see mockups from you.
I enjoy your color choices, they are neat.

The first one IMO could use some more contrast between the layers so some elements dont look that flat and stand out a bit more.
The pirate one is great, I really dig that skull cave and that life bar, so cool.
The last one looks stylish. Though the pink bikini doesn't read that well.

Hope you post stuff like this more often.

Ew, seriously Gil, that is so out of sync with the rest of the picture. Total styleclash. Tsktsk.

Yeah, that was my conclusion too. He should do something to them though, because the top looks rather meh right now.

yeah if you look at it in detail, maybe, but as a part of the whole picture, they look pretty perfect IMO..  :)

@Kenneth

my only crits is about the yellow BG in the first.. looks a bit too empty right now.. but it may be WIP.. ?

Love the pirates, love the sidescroller, the girls just arent my taste

how about something like this for the cacti?  too much light?



enemeies need the same line treatment as the character

The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

thanks for the comments and edits :)

yeah i need to do something about the cacti, a slight color change might be all thats needed, same goes for the bg.
dont really want to add an outline to the slimes, they are meant to be made of water, so adding a outline will make them look too solid.

nah the only game im actually going to make.... or try to at least... until i get bored of it, is the platformer :)

to me the slimes look completely out of style, they use much more shades than anything else.
everythings looking crisp, clean, and stylish as always kenneth.

1. Stray pixel on the upper portion of the second Cactus from the left. The sandy coloured backdrop looks way too simple and could do with some simple detailing. Its also a weird colour given the overall lighting, and textures of the scene. Much as I love your style, this one doesn't do anything for me...

2. Pure awesomeness! I take it that sailing is not meant to be the main portion of the game; any chance of finding out what was?

3. Interesting to see the humble beginnings of one of your mocks. I'm curious to know if the palette and foreground were still due for some tweaking.

I think that they are all great. Your style is so clean and fresh looking and would look great on a NDS or GBA. Good luck with the game. How are you finding GameMaker?
