I decided to take a little break from some project I've been working on and do a little practice. Was trying to pixel a portrait in andrae's style (based on this piece), where I got the character idea from also. After finishing the portrait I thought I'd make a character sprite and a mockup.

Font is bad, I need to practice!
Thanks to Lakelezz and Lijj for c&c and inspiration!

@Delicious and Ptoing I decided to try giving the font 1 pixel space above the lines, and did some change on f character, I think the readability is better now!

I originally planned to make it larger, but felt like it wouldn't fit much text that way.

Thank you all for the compliments :)

beautifully done! Perhaps the fonts could've benefited from being slightly larger

This basement has a desparate outcry for a serious remodeling. 

I like this. It's so creepy, and the girl seems like she's blood-stained, even she isn't.

This is just amazing. The color useage, shapes and forms are all badass!

Nice scene. Though I have to say, while the font does look nice, it is not the easiest font to read without squinting here and there.

@king bobston

You are a terrible font. 

Haha, yeahh the readability could have been a lot better! I would have to tweak it if I was gonna make this into a real game, but since it's just a mockup I'll keep it like this.

@Elk and Storm thanks! :D

What a terrible font

Kidding, still love the portrait and the character of the font (althrough I still have my reservations about the readability)

Storm (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/9/2016 20:24

Looks great!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/9/2016 18:09

This look awesome!

Veli (Level 4 Ensign) @ 2/8/2016 02:50

Right away I knew it was your art. Good job as always!

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 2/7/2016 19:57


Hahaha XD alright you guys are definitely messing with me! But I changed my mind anyway, I guess because nobody is calling it terrible. Thanks :)

This looks really cool.  Great font too

 @Mega 19, ADrawingMan

You guys gotta be joking with me because I wrote "Font is bad" XDD Thanks though.. XD


Haha thanks, I tried making it look shaky, to make it look like she was scared when writing it down! Maybe it's not as bad as I though.

Mega_19 (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/7/2016 15:34

thats a really nice font!

I know, I like the font too. Seems to fit the scary basement..

as if hastily jotted down in a diary.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/7/2016 14:57

That's a sexy font you got going there :O 

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 2/7/2016 13:50

XD I don't think I'll ever pixel a hospital tileset! I think school was a better idea.. or.. mansion! But cave should be least expected, and I wanted to practice making rocks!

Lakelezz (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 2/7/2016 13:42

You still have to practice pixeling hospitals.. this is not even close.. :/
