Sprite miniatures for a pixel based novel

on: February 16, 2006, 07:50:36 am
 Anyone played ZOE or Super Robot Taisen series before? These are my own miniatures for my own series. I am thinking of making graphic novels instead of games now or pixel art comics. C+C?

I have a hard time telling what these are.

Also, are these for the graphic novel?  It seems that larger pixel art would be better suited for that.  A whole novel with unique art for each frame would be really wild, I think.

I think they're supposed to me mech heads...but at that size, without much definition. they're just looking like odd doodles...

Perhaps try making them again with a directional light source...that should help define the form at least a little.  BTW, pixelling a graphic novel seems like a hell of a lot of work...having edited a couple of them, and knowing the time that goes into one, I'd say web comics are a better venue for pixel work.

 You should play SRW or ZOE to know about these. Heh, I know you guys don't get what I am making. They are sprite miniatures for map scenes. They aren't supposed to look big, because they are ZOE and SRW style. They aren't mech heads really, don't think that heh. One of them is a monster.  Here are what they are used for so you can get a better idea. The novel is tactics based, what do you think?

It's a good start, ... , for a foot soldier.
If you really want to make it good, at some people with personality. Make it so that people have someone to focus on. Just throwing it out there.

Oh, and if you just make it tile-based like that, I'd be bored out, out of all honesty. Unless it was positively un-freakin'-believably good.
