Mermaid Layer from Steam Pirates for iPhone/Wiiware.

On a side note, the AA on this piece broke my balls, They ache to this day.

Awesome BG. Cannot imagine its game but the red shape and the ground effect looks great!

Mathias, this site IS cool because it showcases pixelart not coding

*iPhone and other mobile device users would hate your suggestion.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/21/2010 14:48

@ Jal - If this site was really cool, the gallery image would be displayed in a div with a flexible width, while staying centered, rather than crop the image.

Everything is already sufficiently componentized into separate boxes, why not allow the box, here labelled "Mermaid Layer" at top left, to scale horizontally to accomodate content? Hmm hmmmm I say??? ?   ?

(AND I want the blow-up function buttons to still work once you've implemented it! My life will be so complete)

--On topic-- I noticed how you gave the edges of the rock a black outline. Is that done in the name of a sharp defined edge, or just an outline? I assume it's just an outline since the dark blue bg must be transparency, In which case, why not give us a simulation of parallaxed scrolling? Worried about filesize?

I really like this, for some reason this reminds me of Zelda Wind Waker

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/20/2010 21:42

Great job on 'er! I sympathize for the AA.

The width of this is large, it not displaying the entire thing is PJ's fault. PJ uses a fixed width of 990px. It only displays 980px of any image at 1:1.

That sounds so wrong.

I feel your balls mang


DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 1/20/2010 12:50

So why didn't you draw the art in x2 and then scale it to 1/2 with interpolation? Or are you a sado who happily sacrifices his balls (and time) for a bit of truPixel show-off!?

This is so cool <3

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/19/2010 21:52

The actual area is called Fish Cove, or something to that effect.

Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

JediDude (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/19/2010 15:36

 Oh my god that is so smooth!! Amazing!!

TheFox (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/19/2010 11:45

Did you mean to say layer, or was it meant to be lair? I am a bit confused.

TioLuko (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/19/2010 10:50

more cheers^^


you made an smooth and brilliant job there^^


like every thing that you made :0


jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/19/2010 10:32

Stegner, when pixels are too wide to show all just click the image and it will open in a new window. For future ref ; )

Sterner Regnix (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/19/2010 10:07

Cheers Badassbill, now I can see it's true awesomeness!!!

Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/19/2010 09:45

That is some intense AA. Lovely work!

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/19/2010 09:07

It's probably too wide for your monitor. Copy/Paste it into an image program and have a look.

Sterner Regnix (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/19/2010 08:57

Very nice, super aa, and I love the colour of the rock.

(On the preview theres a cool half woman half skull face, but not on the pic???)

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/19/2010 08:28

It is parallax scrolling, but the back layer has a lot of NPA roots, and the front layer is part of a tile set.

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/19/2010 08:25

nice... excelent colors.... the rocks remind me a bit of ptoing's thrustburst.....  the aa is bit messed up tho .... kidding ^^

is this the only layer or is it part of a parallax scrolling?


Tyvon (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/19/2010 07:53
