Looks cool. You mention that you are going to stream your animating on twitch. Can we get a link to your twitch channel?

I've just been trying out Spriter for the aliens' animations. Still haven't figured out how to make the gifs more fluid.

Also waiting for Spriter's Beta6 so I can finally use smoothing curves on the animations. Otherwise they'll look to choppy.



Today's work was this jumping plant among other little things. Going to live cast another alien drawing session today.



I was streaming on my personal chanel but now I'm going to start using Tio Atum's twitch account - http://www.twitch.tv/tioatum

Wow. What a day of crappy casting. Tried to cast the completion of this alien creature and then I noticed I was on and off for 5 seconds at a time...

Anyways, here's the latest. The animation in Vine form and Gif.

Today I spent most of the day hungover and doing some foliage for the 1st set. I want to show you all the tiles and mockups of the first area but it still needs some work.

So I leave you some picture of what I did last week. I drew this first set of male character sketches



and although the body seemed nice and all I still hasn't to happy with the face




Any favorites?

Of course his clothes need some work. He seems like a janitor and not a Space Merc Tongue I'll post some more of this guy tomorrow. Got to get back to those plants. This concept stage is taking forever. I want the art to be just right Smiley

Love the art style! I think the best body is #3 and the best face is the seventh sketch. I think his clothes actually look great! Space mercs are so common in video games nowadays that making him look less cliche would be cool. The janitor look makes him seem more badass because he doesn't even need a heavy suit.

Thanks for the feedback! yeah, we're not going for the whole combat suit kinda thing.


Here are some more sketches of, let's call him Bob for now. We are probably going for the first one on the second row. The one with the jacket (like in the poster).

Today was tile work day. I spent most of the morning working on some plants and the went of to try to find the right style for the tiles.



Then I started doing some more research and all hell broke loose. Started doubting my earlier choices for tiles and stared doing some variations...



Which ones do you like best?

Tomorrow I'll be doing mockups with each of these tiles to see which ones fit our game best. And then cross mt fingers hoping not to change my mind for the next couple of months Tongue

After deciding what sort of perspective to put on the tiles I got to put everything together and unify the style. The plants, characters and tiles look all a bit different. The tiles especially since they are vector based. Decisions decisions.

More tomorrow!

More tiles!

Wow, yesterday I spaced out just doing mockups for the tiles. I barely ate  Crazy Today I got a grip on myself and dashed towards a choice. Sometimes is so easy to obsess with little details...

Let me show you some of the mockups I did. I won't post them all in full rez, that would be beyond spamming Tongue



Just look at this set. You can barely tell the difference between them. All it took was a night's sleep and next morning I picked one.



And Now to break this into little cubes and add some vegetation tiles. This is the mockup that'll use for that.



Btw, can anyone tell me how to make the images clickable so you can see them in a bigger resolution?

I've been going mad with the tiles for this game. I finally finished the basic ones for the first area of the game.

Today was mostly doing sketches for the background, some small decorative vegetation and a lot of planing with Afonso.

I'm still doing some work on the backgrounds so I'll post that later. For now here's a glimpse of what I'll be doing next. Animations!





Now to figure out what software we're going to use. Spriter is good but it looks like it's a couple of betas away from what we need. Maybe Spine?

Today I spent most of the morning trying out Spine from esoteric software. Spriter is very cool and all but it's still missing key features. We'll probably use Spine for Greedy Guns animations.

Here's an old spriter animation (no easing curves among other constraints)



and an alien eggplant animation I did with Spine this morning. Had to record a Vine cause the free version doesn't export...

https://vine.co/v/hTgLYr1IFJu

Spine allows for more natural movement. Do you think I went overboard with the bounce?

Maybe. It's hard to tell because a) it's a Vine and b) it's in isolation from the rest of the game. Having the bounce be a tad exagerrated in the actual game might work nicely.

What stands out more to me is that his little ponytail thing isn't flopping or bouncing but getting stretched with the rest of the body. I know this is an early test but it really flattens the character.

You are not the first to turn my attention to it. Trouble is I cant do it before Spine adds its mesh deform feature. Maybe if I chop the ponytail and add it as a separate sprite.

Will definitely consider adding bits like that ponytail (only more easily detachable) to to future characters. Should liven them up quite a bit.
