Why is there an Ohmu in the background?
I was hoping someone would recognize it.
Not using it for the game, but I stuck a quick stencil of one in there because it fits the vibe of the "world" perfectly!
Wow, your style is glorious! The land seems almost to glow from within, and the twirly bits are giving me a real nightmare before Christmas vibe.
I can't wait until you finish your project.
Thanks! The intent was to make it sort of backlit from the background.
I tried as much as possible to keep a 16x16 tile sheet in mind when I did this. A lot of it will work, but it's still far too organic than what a 16x16 will allow. Maybe 32x32, done smartly. I'll have to do some tests soon.
This will be an uber long term project, though. Probably a year, for what I have in mind. Can't dedicate all my free time on it.
Welcome! Wow this is REALLY cool, I've seen many metroid style games (like the one in my profile pic) But this is deffinetly the most unique! Cool art style! It's ALMOST like yoshi's island meets metroid!
Thank you! Metroid is def my main influence. Metroid, Nausicaa, hard sci-fi, Moebius, fuck knows.
But hopefully I can make it pretty weird.
3D art is my daytime job, I haven't done pixel work in over a decade! I cheated a bunch for this mockup, used PS's outline and inner/outer glow a lot. As long as my silhouettes were well done, the subsurface glow effect mostly did itself.
