When I think of turn based games I think of strategy games and there is none greater than Advance Wars. The big baddies in Advance Wars were the big gun emplacements in the sequel Black Hole Rising.

And that reminded me of the second level (I think) baddie in the SNES Area88/UN Squadron game and so mash up was born.

I've never seen the manga/anime so the choice of the corsair2 aircraft was based on the number of images that came up when I googled and it's a bit more interesting than the tigershark that was also shown. The villains image was taken from a baddie in the manga/anime who I think is an arms dealer.

Lovely edit, whilst I doubt even with a free reign I would have got to the colours you selected or managed to create a similar effect , I think I was slavishly trying to use similar colours to the snes game baddie. I'll think twice next time, thanks for taking the time to edit.

No worries. :)

I think that you've picked the wrong colours as mids which has led to weak shadows and highlights. The hue/value shift should be far stronger.

Here is an example.... sorry for the quick and dirty edit :|

Thanks Mandrill, I'm trying to get better. Bearing in mind I'm using the DB32 pallette, what colour changes would you have made? Or are you referring to the lack or primary colours as used in advance wars as the colours were taken more from the snes game.

Even though colours could be better the actual pixel work is quite good. It certainly has an Advance Wars vibe.

Cool stuff! :)
