I didn't mean to, like, anger you, Metaru. I was pretty damn certain you couldn't use backgrounds. o.o;

Looks like I was right~

ok bg is removed, thought its ok though coz of previous comments

I love the copmposition and dithering.

@metaru: Actually, there is a rule. Transparency isn't optional, it is required. Other than that, the challenge thread makes it clear that the picture must be a sprite, witch, I believe, can't be used with a background.


besides, I love the piece. I actually like how over-dithering makes the piece feel retro, but it could use some work, though.

i see this as a graphic for a static image or a cutscene, maybe. but for practical purposes, try and think how would you turn this into an actual animated sprite of a ship who has to move to its sides, going up/down, etc.


it juest doesnt read as a sprite, for me.

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/10/2009 14:44

what do u mean "doesnt fit" ? 

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 6/10/2009 14:08

there is no such thing as a rule that doesnt allow the use of backgrounds. actually, transparency is optional.


what i would like to point is the fact that this doesnt really "fit" as a sprite, for practical purposes...

To my understanding, you can't have any scenes in the work. I'd ask a higher-ranked person for confirmation.


Other than that, I like it! A little over-dithered though.
