It's been a while since I updated my gallery, so I thought I'd do something about that. :P

This was for a commission that used the Joe Camel IP (Back in Nov. 2008) . I gotta say, it was pretty cool to work with that character, but I didn't really like making a game that was basically going to try to get people to smoke.

And I was thinking that there could be a lot of funny animations that they would never approve. :P Like, every once and a while, Joe would have to stop and catch his breath, and then hauck up a nasty glob of black flem. Would have been awesome.

Looking back at this, it's pretty clear I should have made some cloud tiles. Oh well. C+C?

EDIT: I liked the sign on the bulding, so I decided to show more of that. :P The origional posted image can be seen here:

This is great. Please post links to the game when it is finished. The camel seems a bit asymmetrical with his arm i think.

Hehe nice concept :) Nice job, the black windows look a bit unnatural though.

   I do also agree that the front buildings don't blend in well, and perspective on them should be changed a bit, for more depth. Other than that, those sand tiles are effin' PRO...awesome job

Thanks a lot guys! :) I updated the image slightly to show  more of the building with the iconic Camel type on it (I personaly like looking at that sign more than the sky line). There's a link to the origional posted image in the description.

Skurwy87: Heh, pretty awesome to hear! I honestly don't know much about the Amiga's graphic style (I've heard it was an early personal computer), so I guess it's just a happy coincodence. :)

Hysteria: Ah, I think I know what you're talking about... you mean have the sand overlap the buttom of the buldings? That's a very good suggestion. I might wind up revisiting these graphics to add in some clouds, and that detail on the ground around the buildings. Thanks!

Hysteria (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 8/2/2009 19:08

Love it :), the only things that i dislike are the buildings bottom, I don't know how to explain it in english, but i think the buildings should be like "into" the sand (like behind it), because it doesnt look right the way it is now.

Im really liking the colors you used it. Real easy on the eyes, at least for me :)

Camels that don the James Dean outfit are just plain badass! 'Nuf said.

I must tell you, it evokes some nice Amiga-ish feeling I really admire.
