Starship Game Sprites Dump

on: May 15, 2008, 08:54:28 pm
I'm gonna make an fast spaceship shootemup in a few days, just for fun and i'm doing its sprites.
I really like how the metal ball, (the prize item) gone. i think it's very realistic, maybe too much comparing it to the other sprites.
please C&c and stay tuned :D






These are power-ups

The powerups look great, but the rest looks fairly poor.
The ship is definately not as realistic looking as the ball, try and define the forms and volumes of the ship better.
You can ditch 1 of the light colours from the powerup, maybe even 2 due to the speed of movement.

 :'( It doesn't convey the same sense of depth that the orb does but I feel the edit I have made is a little more on track in some ways. I say don't bother outlining the ship instead let it look as real as possible so you get a sense that it really is in the environment, Space shooters are great for sprites as you know the background is going to be black and so can blend to it. I think the players ship is a bit boring, so add more detail to it so it gets more sense of character. I personally would change the design a lot as it is really cliche right now (me changing the colours away from red probably didn't help mind you).
