In Topic: Character Design without bilateral symmetry

22 July 2013 - 01:12 AM

Symmetry does seem to happen. Here's what I could find going through my deviant art bookmarks. Some is asymmetrical, and some of it is just out there. Hope it helps!

You're right... its hard to find asymmetrical designs.

I had tried graphicsgale, which was pretty decent for pixel art and animation.


Yacht Club is using Promotion for their game Shovel Knight, which I've been meaning to check out.




Other than that, even photoshop is usable for pixel art, just make sure you use the pencil/pen tool instead of the brush.


That's bout what I've got. I only just started doing pixel art, and http://cerberust.deviantart.com/art/NFL-Man-32-Megaman-NFL-Helmets-296127089 is the best example I have of what I've figured out to this point..


Good luck! Feel free to post progress and artwork!

Good luck dude! Feel free to post concepts on here more! I never mind grabbing an image and taking ten minutes to spruce it up. I do this for a living :D

In Topic: Need some advice

Unity seems to be huge, as well as Construct 2. These are game making programs that simplify things big time, so even a big dummy like me can use them. They are, however, streamlined and can export to multiple platforms. As a result, many companies seem to be using them (at least in California).


If you want to make games, you have to start by making games?


I'm just getting into this too... but these are about the same pieces of advice I'd give an aspiring animator, something I'm much more acquainted with.


(And yeah, my animation curriculum in college was a joke.)

I thoroughly enjoyed WWZ, but (Spoilers) ...   ... ok. So if the zombies don't attack sick people, there's no way that doesn't get figured out VERY quickly. The movie never takes us to a hospital, because unlike in the book where they are the first to go, in this film, the entire cancer ward would be calling anyone and everyone to let them know "HEY, WERE NOT BEING EATEN". Consider how many hospitals there are in the world (18,000 according to wiki), and how many millions of people have diseases, and there's just no way this isn't figured very early.


I do love how intimate the final zombie sequence is. All the faceless horde attacking like lava, and the most intense moment of the film gets to be just Pitt, one zombie, and a glass door. Everything slows down, we get to see an infected up close doing some nice acting, and its all very suspenseful. Smartly done I thought.
