a shoot'em up mockup i did a while back, thought i'd edit a few things and submit it. Inspired by eyecraft.

*update, fixed weird dragon head thing...i think

The moment I saw the preview, I thought of eyecraft's spaceshooter :-) Looks awesome!!! the ship sprites are just pwnage.

Oh! Just found this. Glad I could inspire...hope you learned from it.

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 7/22/2006 09:41
yea I understand. maybe i shouldn't have uploaded it here.  It was good practice a while ago, but in terms of originality I can't give myself much credit.

I'm not very fond of you nearly copying EyeCraft's works.
Insiration-good, almost-plagiarism-bad.
Yeah, I know this is "only" very similar to EC's pixelarts and the designs are yours, but it's just too much for me to consider this a good and original work. Inspired or not.

thanks for the comment neota.  To be honest when i was workin on this a bunch of months ago I had intended to add larger meteors.  It sat for a while and then i picked it up recently and added the two bars, and the very mundane and boring shots.  I kinda just wanted it finished.  Thanks for the comments nonetheless =)

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 7/10/2006 20:34
I think it needs actually larger rocks on the top layer.. the main problem is that the facets should be larger, given the closeness.

something roughly like this?:
quick edit that you could experiment with in the top layer

The 'craft are fine. the shots are boring. Ever played Tyrian? it has lots of interesting weapons if you seek inspiration.

The energy bars are probably too outstanding for a real game.. Flatness is easier to look at for things that change often like energy bars; particularly if you go for the continuous style rather than 'stack of points' style.

@vidd - well the thing that was inspired by eyecraft was the purple lighting of course, however, the spaceship design body was also heavily inspired because i had no knowledge of what they should look like.  Im sorry if this looks a bit derivitive but I was learning how to do shmup ships.  After I studied eyecraft's i was able to do enemy ships with a unique body structure.  However I do think my design is different enough from eyecraft's in terms of details and i did draw my own lineart of course.  But hey you learn by doing.

@zzkodi - thanks, err what clouds :F?

Vidd (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/7/2006 05:55
Sorry for not noting that I read that it was inspired by Eyecraft, I forgot to.

ZZZkodi (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 7/7/2006 04:04
nice work!  (Pretty clouds !)

Vidd (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/7/2006 02:35
I can't get over that this is so similar to Eyecraft's spaceship in terms of design and size. :/
If you layer one over the other, the circular parts even seem to overlap and match.
Even the little three segment decal on the front part is there.

I apologise if I'm accusing you wrongly but why are so alike?

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 7/7/2006 02:00
stop looking for it! =P  ill change them ;)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 7/6/2006 23:47
I remember these asteroids from the forum. they look great in a mockup. Sadly, the "dragon" face is now too obvious and distracting

buloght (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/6/2006 19:12
The colours and lighting are awesome!

Scruffs (Level 7 Assassin) @ 7/6/2006 16:18

thanks guys =),dark rogue, the stars are kinda faded shoulda added some brighter ones

@wannahla(etc.) - Ha! i never saw that until now, thats pretty funneh.  no the 'mouth' is the cockpit and the 'eyes' are just some random details.

kaltsu (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/6/2006 15:25
Awesome lighting!

Wannahlakujuu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2006 14:54

Are the purple ships supposed to look like the heads of dragons?


Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 7/6/2006 12:41
those asteroids are hot

M@lone (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2006 12:29
Makes me want to jump into my copy of Game Maker and start making a game. Excellent! ;)

Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/6/2006 12:29

Looks like cereal....which is good! Cool job, I like the hue shifts. But, where are the stars?

Imagician (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 7/6/2006 11:21
Great, especially the purple lighting ... I can almost feel the parallax scrolling due to the darker getting asteroids further down. I'd love to play that game
