I fall immersed easily into this environment! It's well detailed but keeps easy to read. Also, those two small beings are cute ^__^

Thanks for this, I wanted to convince my game team boss a handpainted game would look good too. :D Do you have video of this or somewhere soon?

Yes i love this look in games, its a nice break from all the pixelarts and vector looking games, not that i mind them at all. Im a huge fan of Bastion, Rayman series(the new ones), Aquaria so yes, it works very well if the artist(s) are up for it. Alot of work for one man tho:P

I want to play it already, I'm making a game too and I find this so beautiful! :B I want my game to look something like this... cute and interesting, some kind of exploring game

yeah this game is designed around exploration, where day and night plays a huge role. At night u need to camp up and defend urself with plant turrets (yes i loved plants vs zombies) against shadow creatures, and at day u are free to roam around gathering seeds(mana) and materials for keeping the plants alive at night. Very complex game tho, but its actually basicly working already, just time thats keeping it on ice:/

The character is skeletal, not a spritesheet. I dont enjoy making spritesheets at all. If u look up programs like Spine, Spriter, Smooth Moves and the likes, u will see its a much faster way to rig 2d characters and just start animating them without redoing the entire character for poses, but much rather do individual parts incase u need them:)

I just hand draw all my frames o.o

ArtByElde Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yeah that is alot of work, with skeletal u only need to remake a few bodyparts maybe, and expressions,sure saves time, but the result is alot better imo. Seriously, check it out, u wont regret it!

oh, when I get to actually making my game I'll look into it ^_^ As of right now though I got about 30-40 frames of animation for the main character sketched out.

pheeewwww.....alot of work!:P sketched out? so u still have to actually do the art and refine it?

warahi Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2013
oooooh yeah...gonna take forever x_x hopefully it'll be worth it in the end. Still have to learn how to code and program. But I should be getting a video of the character in the animation frames I have for him so far up tonight. I can show you the progress then =)

IF u enjoy doing art, stick to art. Once u get good enough and u find urself doing it everyday and not thiniknig of it as "work", u are ready to find a programmer partner. I enjoy art, i tried learning code but my brain is too visual to even read, so i teamed up with programmers instead. Doing a game alone is INCREDIBLY hard because theres no one helping u alone, and its easy to loose motivation and not be self-disciplined.


We are 2 people and its VERY nice to have Adrien(the programmer) backing me up, giving me feedback on my art and make me wanna keep going.


YEs i'd love to see it, ive been animating for a while now,skeletal tho, but im sure i can point u in the right direction:)

hey man thanks alot! I would love to, but as of now this game was a "handpainted tech demo for 2d games", but it is functional. U cna walk around and shoot at stuff, and theres a small pet following u around. We will continue this game 100% once our mobile game is out, wich i will be revealing in a short while:)

yes its digitally painted ofc, i use a Cintiq:P im sure it doesnt take me longer than any dude doing say...pixelart. Im pretty fast making graphics like this, and i learn new stuff everyday. The worst is doing something new that needs referance, but im dedicated:P
