I'm art lead of our group for a game design unit at uni. We are making a zombie game.  I put together a template of the 'standard' zombie enemy which was originally just going to be a basis to start making the 3d model:
I made a base and an example of most/many of the features that can be added (set as different layers).  I want to use flash so that I can post up a 'Zombie Builder' using what I have and put it on my portfolio site (which I have to get around to making).

I know that the lower abs/pelvis anatomy is off... but the zombie virus/juju magic/alien parasite makes naked zombies kiddi friendly. :crazy:
Excessive violence is completely tolerable as long as no hooha is shown, thats how everyone else seems to do it  :y:.

Also I really have to get back into sketching, everytime I see a drawn picture it hurts me not knowing where abouts my skills lie with rendering in pencil nowadays.
:EDIT: almost forgot, vitruvian man was used as reference.

I recently picked up a LSDJ but soon after realized it's a lot more complicated that I thought. So I've been messing around with Garage band so I can plan stuff out before I start making any serious Chiptunes.

Here are some songs I've got so far:
Pirate Ship
Epic Battle
Clock Tower "wooden cogs"

I always have such a hard time getting the notes in my head to sound like the notes that are played lol.

Jakten:  have you tried Musagi?  http://www.cyd.liu.se/~tompe573/hp/project_musagi.html
It's like a lo-fi chip-style sequencer that's similar to flstudio.  It's not extremely feature rich or anything, but it's fun to mess around with and you can make some pretty complex stuff with it.  It also comes with various NES-style instruments, and you can use VSTi instruments (and effects?), though I've not done much with that feature.  It's got some glitches and weird behavior occasionally, but it's fun as hell to mess around with.

This took me maybe 20-30 minutes of just playing around with it to make: http://speedmodeling.org/smcfiles/squiggly_p_Test_Song_003.mp3
(was going for a Megaman type of feel, but failed badly :P)

You might also want to check out Milky Tracker if you're more into tracker-style interfaces.  You can draw your own samples, so you can get some really nice chip-style sounds out of it.  Personally, I never had the patience to work with trackers.

Like the gunshot music too.
That sounds great Jakten and Squiggly!

That song is awesome squiggly, I'm impressed you made it so fast!

I've tried milky tracker a bit but I got confused as well so I figured I would stick to LSDJ but I haven't heard of this Musagi program but ill have to try it out. It looks a lot easier than LSDJ.

The resource/paint used is in the picture is bleach.
The only things not shown in this image are the paintbrushes I used.

Mathias that's awesome. :D

These were all sketched in  permanent marker, so any mess up is permanent.
I've been inspired by the book of Roger Dean's artwork, it's all so amazing.
