Since I managed to get a couple of hours of free time this weekend, I thought I’d tackle some of the larger game art.
First up is Big Bertha, one of the two new bosses. Bertha is a drilling robot who is controlled by an evil king. She doesn’t want to destroy the Earth, but he has the controls. This image hopefully captures that she’s not happy about what’s happening. You can see the smaller version of her for dialogs in the lower right.
Next up is the White Whale. Again, he’s cutesy in the dialog but should look a bit more fearsome. To fit into 64×64 pixels, but still feel big, I made him partially submerged. I’m not sure if I should keep the light blue water around him or just have the two ‘going in the water’ lines on the body parts. These two bosses are probably my post complex pieces yet.
Finally the title screen. This is just a test of the letter forms. Coloring, highlights and animation will come later. Imagine it covered in red and green, perhaps with some candy canes in the background and snow falling.
For some reason the letter A is hard. I’m happy with the E, F, and t of the smaller text, though. What’s up with that ‘k’ though?
