Thanks guys!  I'm not sure how I feel about the sky level colors though, especially how the castle looks, it doesn't look very "realistic".  Not that the rest of the game looks realistic at all, but the sky level looks like a dream almost or something lol.  I might keep it but who knows, I might change it to more day time colors.  Not sure.

Testing out parallax with my forest levels.  The art looks so much more unfinished in-game lol.  I'm going to go back and clean it up now, hopefully tomorrow I'll have something that actually looks nice.

Just one more level art to add to the game, at least to get the basic coloring down because there is still a lot of detail to add to each one of these, though the beach level is probably 100% finished.

I noticed you attached the biggest trees directly to the ground parallax layer. I did not see this in the last gifs of the beach level. The first layer did not have any trees, only buildings. In my eyes the big trees are good, because it lets the player (bug) look smaller. The palm trees could be much taller, too.

What will buildings in the new levels look like?

Yeah I'm thinking about changing up the art for the parallax layers, and make the palm trees bigger but I'm not sure if it will clutter the area too much from seeing the ocean and islands in the background which I like.

I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do for the structures in the new areas, they won't all be buildings for the most part, probably only the sky levels now.  But for the forest and cave levels I might just do some sort of natural looking structures like trees to jump off of but I don't know if that will look good.  I'll have to do some experimenting.  What do you think I could use?

To prevent clutter you could always reduce the number of palm trees.

I thought about natural structures, too. For example clouds (instead of grass) in the sky level, roots/leaves in the forrest level, stone/crystals in the cave level. Maybe you could tweak the beach structures to look more like sandcastles (test a sand ground)?

Roots and crystals are really good ideas for platforms in the forest and cave levels.  I'll probably do that.  As for the sky levels I might do clouds but I'll probably also use buildings like the beach since when you're on the sky levels you're on one of those sky islands.

Running on grass makes sense if you see a floating sky island in the background. I did no see it that way. Facepalm However, you could make it 100% clear that you are on one of those floating island by showing some clouds at the bottom of the screen:

That looks pretty cool, thanks for the suggestion. What if there was another layer of clouds in the foreground as well?

Alright so I'm starting to design the bosses in the game, and there will be many, probably around 15.  At first I was going to make the bosses generic monster bug things, but then I decided I'd give them more character and personality, so I came up with this guy.

He's going to want to beat you up and he'll never let you reach the king.  I'm also considering giving him boxing gloves and a stadium behind him full of cheering bugs.  Cheesy

Just getting a sense for what I want the boss fight to look like more or less.  Plus a new font I'm using that looks kind of like handwriting.  Maybe a little Mario-esque as well.

Going to try to add a Smash Brothers-esque splash screen for boss encounters, this will be fun creating high res portraits for each boss, will be time consuming though lol.

Alright so I'm having some trouble here.  I'm trying to create these high rez boss splash screens before boss fights sort of like Borderlands/Super Smash Bros/ Binding of Isaac and this is the first time I've ever created these kinds of high rez sprites and it's just not looking good.  I'm not exactly sure how to make it look better, there is some shading missing but I've honestly never really done dithering before except for on a few dirt/sand tiles in the game and that's a totally different texture.  The character looks super plain but I'm not sure where to add detail/lighting.  I think I'll make a post about it in the art boards but yeah, this looks super amateur and really ms paint-ish.  Doesn't look like proper pixel art I guess.
