    Posted: 18 October 2005 at 7:21pm

Hello again all,

Let me say that this is NOT a job offer, but rather a project to see different styles and approaches to a set concept.

I know I haven't posted much art here but that's because I'm busy with programming games most of the time. I wish to make a spaceship collab here. You can contribute a small ship, and if you'd like and I could put your ship in a game. (with your permission of course!). I'm not sure if I will make a game out of these, but if you do want to contribute please put the name that is to be credited. I only have two limitations:

1. Ships should not exceed 128x128 and be a a multiple of 16 in size.
2. Ships may centinly be animated if you wish. ( also you may make projectiles too. :) No color limitations unless you impose them on yourself.

 The Walrus.

a small update:

 The Walrus ver. 2.0

I used to make these for hours I hope you have fun with this!

Nice. You got an organic look to that one.(it reminds me of a pear's texture)

Here is one more from me!

     

Hmmm my ships don't seem to have any common style to them or do they?

Nothing too flashy.  Actually one of the first ship sprites I've done in a while.

oh - and mine can kick your ship's trash....because they're pink....and colorful

I just desided to post this cuz I was rummaging through my old old pixel arts and found this.  Its actually one of my oldest pieces.

Is it not because the examples were made for vertical shooters?
I took it for granted that they were supposed to be like that.

do you have animation shop as well? If so, next time make all your intended tranparencies a bright pink or some other colour that isn't being used. Then when you've compiled your animation into Animation Shop, select all (ctrl+a) and go to the Animation toolbar and select Replace Color. You can figure out the rest I'm sure. If you don't have it, then I dunno what to say

Well top down shooters are my personal favorite type, but feel free to make any view in this thread. I love the one that's not symmetrical nice touch! Is there such thing as an iso ship we don't know...Sorry I often use the Royal WE. too much Katamari Damacy I guess!!

Some ships I threw together. The orb would be a alien ship, or maybe something to grab for points?

How they'd look on black:

Plasma Gun Ship thingy:

Orb:

Why thank you.
Its the way I used to try to draw ships before I knew it was called pixel art. I just wanted to copy video games. I had this style of making some parts really flat and others shaded, and oddly shaped rings and pieces attached to them. I used to doodle these on SNES Mario Paint when I was really little, so this collab brought me nice memories.

There are two more asymmetrical ones now, I guess, with the orb and the plasma ship.

Nice sprites centrefuge! I wonder how a game would look like if it had a lot of glowing sprites filling the screen.

Here's an enemy for a change:

In the game you could sort of do that. make a level where these are camoflaged(sp?) amongst this computer chip pattern (maybe on a mothership or a planet) and then they fly out and attack.
