 TUGS competition, round one entry- create an underwater boss battle mockup using the astrological signs of Leo and Virgo as motifs.

I decided to use the old Pixeljoint challenge palette, with a few added colors; I didn't really have much time to optimize my palette at the end, at the time of posting there's only an hour to the deadline anyways.

This thing is basically the largest work of pixelart I've ever done; I'm not too confident on my chances of advancing to round two, though.

Awesome work. Although formatted differently, reminds me a lot of this: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/59492.htm

 

Question!! You mention optimizing your palette towards the end. Could you give some specifics as far as what you mean/steps you take, etc? Please and TIA :)

Amazing in every aspect. The only entry in TUGS expert tier that's worth something. I just really wonder why the guy is walking.

This is beautiful enough to make me forget the teal + orange trend that movies made me hate.

Great entry, I should post mine too.


user
Perihelion (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/3/2011 16:54

Badass. Love the sprites and the HUD. Background could use some more detail but definitely doesn't look bad.


user
jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2011 15:45

Very good but must agree the orange ramp could be adjusted a bit as mentioned.


user

 Great stuff! Good luck in round 2!

I really like how your entry came out, you might be the only one I know so far to really finish it to. hehe heh..uhgg


user
Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 8/3/2011 14:35

 Recolored the orbs to a more desaturated shade; I'll deal with fixing the preview at a different point.


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 8/3/2011 14:23

Haha, manupix. And good counter-point Kitten. But really, evaluate how much visual weight those orange orby things are getting as a result of their coloration. Way too much. They look like they're on a different layer or something. Only one possibility (who died and make me the god of design principles huh?) could justify the design decision - the orange thingies have high gameplay significance. But they're just bg doodads so no-go there hehe.

Alanbato (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/3/2011 14:19

 I think the orange is used for the "Skills" aswell, so it fits..


user
JuninFC (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/3/2011 13:41

Great Drazelic !


user
KittenMaster (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/3/2011 12:41

I think the orange looks excellent.  "Killing the palette" is no concern if you can use the color well and it serves as a vibrant addition.


user
Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 8/3/2011 12:05

 I will totally go back and fix that and actually DO SOMETHING with the huge empty blue background once i am not totally burned out by this thing


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2011 12:04

Looks really good, with the notable exception that the orange totally kills the palette ;_;
