I'll try making something retro-futuristic :P

*edit* I've had a silly idea. Here's a quick wip ;P

*edit2* updated wip :P

This is going to be tough to come up with ideas for. I have some thoughts, but they require animating, which is my nemesis.

I liked the bold color scheme you had before, but I think this one is interesting as well. I definitely envy anyone who can do guns - despite being made up of fairly simple shapes at their core, they always seem to elude me This color scheme does make it feel more retro than futuristic, but that's not necessarily a bad thing (one look at the lights on the gun will tell you it's futuristic).

I'm interested in seeing how you incorporate the advertising aspect!

How do you do this? How do you come up with pieces of the gun like this? This is amazing!

I... well, I have no idea, except the fact that I like steampunk, I've played quite a bit of Mass Effect (yeah, the 'silly idea' was actually a steampunk N7 sniper rifle, but I eventually scrapped it) and I've been rather impressed by Xamllew's recent works :)
I also try to never use any references for my pixelart (except when making fanart and similar stuff) which may or may not be a good thing :/

Here's some more wip:



And now to turn it into an ad! Typography time :D

I thought of something like this



Now when I think about that, it would be pretty good to have something like that in real ;-)

Omg, that's cheap, I want one :D
My gun thingie is quite a bit more expensive though, at $99999.99 :)



Yeah, I made four typefaces for this advertisment O_O
Also, manually arranging letters is a pain :/

This may be a stupid question but, in an animation will the colors be counted in all the frames combined or will it be just none of the frames can have over 35?

If every frame has different colours, then yes, the colours will be counted. But if they're the same every time, it's fine.

Started doing this for the laughs, but I guess I'm gonna finish it.
I'm gonna change the eyes later, but before I start polishing this up is there anything bad in anatomy or so? I tend to miss them myself always.


update: still working on it

@xoLz
Try to make the her bangs look not so much like tentacles. I would say make them skinnier.

Ooh, true that.
Hows this:

Oh actually i was talking about the ones hanging right over her forehead not the ones you changed. Though i would say a slight cross between the two most recent versions you posted would be the best.

Oh well, I'm about to hit the bed and I guess I'll go with the current one I ended up with, thanks though.

Any ideas of how to make the air canister look like its spinning and how to ease the transition of the light grey to advertisement.


Posted By: AngelOTG
Date Posted: 11 May 2012 at 5:48pm
You can make the canister spin by putting a logo on the can, and moving that around. And you can ease the transition by maybe giving the screen a quick flicker? Just like how old TVs do when they are getting into bad shape.
