Most of the objects in my game are relatively small in size, but I do have a few big pieces, including the one and only “boss” in the game. Anyway, this is definitely one of the biggest single sprites I have made and THE most detailed big sprite I have made. And the boss has 3 big destructible “cannons” so I had to make what the boss looked like underneath and then make parts that fit nicely on top as well.

WITHOUT CANNONS

I’m getting near the end of the first pass of static art, just a few pieces left. After that… I guess I need to decide if I am going to try to take on all of the art in my game for real, or try to find an artist. Because the next step is animation and that’s a lot of work if I’m just going to have someone else replace it all anyway.

Then again making all of the current art has been a lot of work if I’m just going to have someone else replace it all anyway, but it’s been a nice learning experience as well.
