Are you a sprite fag, /v/? Do you make them for an amateur game or for a sprite comic, or just make sprite sheets for the sake of making sprite sheets?
Well, I'm making a game with a bunch of other anons. I'm doing the placeholder sprites, and our official sprite artist takes them and turns them into legit sprites.
Pic related, the placeholder sprites ATT. So far, he's sprited 2 of them. He just joined 2 days ago, but he's REALLY fuckin' good.
I'll post his 2 sprites after this.
those costume are based of some DQ artwork design,
One is the Sage from DQIII, One is the armor of Roto (but no headgear), the other is plain clothes
I am missing Facesets but otherwise the sheet is almost complete, I could add more physical moves but I haven't thought about what exactly.
I'm not an artist, but since you don't give a fuck about pallette limits anyway, what about making their outlines a brighter shade of their main palette? ie. blue monsters outlined in greyed blue etc Just an amateur idea.
The only Pixel art i have now is these though.
Super cute. The tanks are messy, but I assume the modular nature has some gameplay function? Like are they customisable or function like platforms? If that's the case then that's cool.
I really want a sprite game for my 3ds now
The whole sheet is actually the result of me beginning it for some obscure forum game called "Picture Wars" (hence why a bunch of poses are missing: Those are usually made on the fly, though I try to save them afterwards to reduce the amount of freehanding I do each battle). The tanks were initially made out of blocks as a placeholder for a prototype I'd eventually make proper vehicle sprites over, but it was so much fun designing various vehicles out of nothing but blocks and gun modules that I decided to keep it in. Makes building a dozen different tank designs easier. I kindly thank the lads who made Steamlands and Super Mario Bros. 3 for the rest of the inspiration.
And a brief showcase of a single Picture Wars screenshot, with myself facing off some other bloke. The game is played between two or more people, basically editing the picture to depict a battle on a per turn basis. The exact rules tend to vary, but it's basically a turn based tactics game, occasionally dipping into strategy.
