I have got to be honest, I really don't like the hands.
They seem to high res compared to the players. They are of course beautiful pieces of pixel art, but for some reason I feel like they don't fit and are just so high res compared to the players, looks like they are from different games.
Thanks! I'm glad you think they look good :D. And also, I do think like you, that they seem to be out of place, but just like flipswitchx, this is because of the size of the sprites. Once the rest of the boss is in place, I may "downgrade" the overall detail if it still looks too out of place.
I think because the hands are just so much bigger than the player they are bound to look more high res. I wouldn't worry about it and keep focusing on the mechanics and how things work it's looking awesome
Completely agree with you, I'll just see how it goes and if at any point I figure out they are not working I can do something about it, but for now, I'm going with what was made for the concept art.
glad you like it.
