Mock Up

on: March 29, 2007, 09:18:34 pm


I was bored today and decided to create a mock-up screenshot of a modern Golden Axe type game with RPG elements. 

I seem to have a disorder where I start new things without finishing older projects.  Gonna go work on my running fighter sprite now.

Haha, I fully understand your "disorder"; might not be a bad thing though.

Lotta good things happening in this screenshot. I like what you did with the trees, sky and building; has a real painterly quality to it. But I would like to see the objects closer to the viewer more distinct. More AA or Cel-out on the HUD and characters would help this out alot.

The mountains in the background aren't really necessary, they seem abit out of place or a wasted element at this point. I would subdue them further into the distance.

Also, at first glance, the building seems abit out of perspective but I remember that it is and its okay to be out of perspective sometimes. It's good that you took the artistic initiative to do this; it gives the building a greater sense of height. False horizons happen all the time in 2d side-scroller games.

Just a quick critique~

looks all great except that the characters are lost in it.  pop them out or tone the bg down i think :)
A mistake is a mistake.
The same mistake twice is a bad habit.
The same mistake three or more times is a motif.

I'd love to see this mockup, as I'm working on some game graphics for a similar style game, but the image is gone. An chance someone could post it again if they have it?

They're good, but the sprites get lost in the background, maybe lower the saturation of the bg colors.
"Baboy" is Filipino for pig.
