Wow... It's been over a month since my last post... Craziness.
Anyway, just wanted to drop a line to say I'm still alive, and making pretty good progress (though, of course, I still wish I'd made more).
I've been working strictly on graphics this last little while, and I had a pretty good streak going. That's been broken about this past week, however. Overtime at work and just the every day grind of life has gotten in the way a bit.
Anyway, time for some good stuff.
I've got all of my weapon graphics done:
Oh, shit. Nevermind. As I was making this collage I realized I missed one
Ah well... They're all almost done. They probably took me longer than they should have, but towards the last graphics, they were only taking twenty or thirty minutes, down from about an hour a piece at the start. A couple could use some additional shading, but not bad considering this is my first pixel art experience. I think I'm learning quickly.
I figure I'll stay on the graphics for the time being. I've got all my UI icons complete as well (I might post those another time).
Now I need to do a 9mm, Motorbike, two more animated enemies (more if you count color variations), and I need to use shrunken versions of the above weapons for my character to hold (I'm hopeful, but I doubt that simply resizing will work...), and then I can get back to my bread and butter... coding.
