Light cycle test for the dorm room location (well, more like an appartment) in Pixel Art Academy.

  1. Lights off
  2. Projector on
  3. Lights on
  4. Projector off
  5. Repeat :)

Still with the Atari 2600 palette + some brights for the projection to pop out.

Disclaimer: the 4 key frames are pixeled by hand, but for the fade I used opacity to control it. Let me know if that is OK or I should upload the fuglier version that is restricted to only the 2600 palette. Or to go without animation at all.

And yes, I know area lights do not have hard edge shadows. The 2600 didn't give me more shades of grey to spare. So when only the projection is lighting the scene, it's very much made up (plant shadow etc).

Hahaha, you're totally right about the greys. Never though about it that way actually. I just picked one of the available palettes that had some nice hues. Well, that's why pixel art academy is just as much a project for me to become better, not really to teach others.  Well, beginners I can probably pass on some knowledge, but yeah, so much more in store for me. Yup. Thanks for commenting, everyone!

Yeah, I bet it wasn't easy to get the ligthing right with the 2600 palette, but you managed to do it anyway. Considering the horrible greys, which I don't find appealing at all, this is amazingly well done.

And by the way, you've got a great website.

I didn't have time to do another scene for the wall, lol. Just like the palm trees on the title screen are horizontal flips of each other. All the way recycling until I die from making this kickstarter. :)

This is great. And I recognised the pixel art on the wall :)

I wish I had time to AA it, then it would be really smooth. (Ohgod, I had to .)

Smooth animation on the projector part. :D
