Where have you learned to make so detailed pixel art?

Sorry I missed this question.

I haven’t. I’ve always been painting and learning about art my whole life and it all translates back to pixel art. The only thing I’ve been trying to learn is the actual methods for things like dithering and anti aliasing edges and stuff like that. Beyond that, it’s all practice of art in general. I’ve always played a lot of pixel art games and I grew up with a SNES so I take a lot of inspiration from games I like.

I don’t think there’s a school for this though :)

(click the character to make her smaller, dunno why tumblr makes her huge)

There has been a long time since I made any type of game dev update, so here’s one!

Graphics

I’ve added a lot of new animations (only a few in the post though). There are also enough graphics to construct a level but I want to add more stuff to make things more lush. A lot of time went into making the parallax graphics, clouds are a pain and are really dull to make but it looks nice. I still need to fine tune the graphics a bit but I have a nice overlook now. I will probably be posting graphical updates more than programming stuff because graphics are usually quicker.

Programming

On the programming side, we’ve gotten a lot done. I fear Jonas might go bald from all the hair ripping but we’re moving forward in a nice pace. The simplest of things can be so complicated, he says.

Things that will take time to get working are the ladders and the checkpoints within new layouts. Oh, and the feared cat… don’t mention the cat to Jonas, he might loose his mind..

Anyway, we almost have all the basic mechanics done. We just need to figure out how to fix the weird bugs with the ladder and how to make the checkpoint system to work. After that it’s fine tuning and we’re moving on to the more complex mechanics.

We don’t want to give away too much before the alpha stage so these tidbits are what you’ll get for now. We will get a website and a youtube page once we’re deeper into devland.

:D

Using photos can sometimes be very useful. Here’s a photo of David Beckham that I painted into Warton (my main character for a personal project). I did this to just get a sense of how he would look in a more realistic form which will help me with developing the character further.If for nothing else, it’s a lot of fun.
