is only 1 space ship?

Holy crap, lots of submissions this week!

Too bad I didn't have time entering this time..

Twinbee Ships have genders.

same as Opa Opa.

and some say that Vic Viper may be a sentient ship.

It didn't entirely suck. It was not sent back for revision ;)

 thx a lot, I'll change my pixels.

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 6/10/2009 03:20

That first example is more appealing to me and I'm sure others might feel that way.  I started something and wasn't quite sure what direction to take it.

@xtr3mz, I wouldn't think a background would be allowed since this is supposed to be just a sprite.

xtr3mz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/10/2009 01:14

 Could I draw a planet as background?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/9/2009 21:36

@dpixel, do not steer too far away from side view,k.

Actually that example should not even be on there at all.

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/9/2009 21:21

Ships have genders?

And I was wondering the same thing about the side view (it might be kind of boring at a full on straight side view.), so I'll just assume it can be somewhat tilted, as long as it shows most of the side?

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 6/9/2009 17:46

Question:  The fist example: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/17107.htm is not 100% from the side.  Since this perspective is in the example can I assume it's ok?  I mean slightly turned a bit?

We just had an incredibly similar challenge to that, though.

tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/9/2009 10:39

a male and female version of a ship would have made for a better challenge.

 I was like 'hmmm.. maybe I should do a quick check before I say such a thing.' But I was on school and my work said no. Yet I did not lie, I did not remember it. Thanks for refreshing, it is much worth it! (And not his only sideview work)

Vic (Level 5 Sniper) @ 6/8/2009 11:17

Mind if I refresh your memories? :)


RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/8/2009 04:39

this is going to be fun

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/8/2009 03:18

Might try my hand at some animation...

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 6/8/2009 01:01

I can not remember any side view ships from squirrel, and I would be interested in his take on it :)

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 6/8/2009 00:32

I was thinking the same exact thing.

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 6/8/2009 00:12

Well, this is a gimme for squirellsquid :p
