I really like the style that you've got going here, cute sprites! Especially since you are looking to take this idea further, I am a bit curious about the 'indian' sprite. The feathered headband is mostly a fictitious design created by the western film genre. I might suggest looking at a specific tribe's dress to avoid the pitfall of perpetuating the 'generic indian' stereotype.



Feathers and headdresses 





It looks like you are going for Monument Valley in your bg? So maybe Navajo?  Also curious about the eagle/bird sprites. They stylistically look more like the Totem poles of tribes from the NW. But perhaps you were going for something like Kachina or Hopi mask/costumes? These all have ritual/religious uses in religions and cultures which are still practiced today, so treading with caution is always a good idea.


Anyway, good luck with the project! I especially like that the villains are bandits/robbers. So often Mexicans and Native Americans are placed as the villains in Westerns, so its cool that the 'evilness' is based on the characters bad deeds and not their race.

I like the atmosphere to this piece! You could probably tighten up the color count a bit by finding ways to use colors in multiple ramps. The minimalistic animation in your previous piece is fantastic, I wonder if you could give this piece the same kind of touch?

Just stumbled upon this, lots of fantastic images and interesting topics, maybe some inspiration for pixls? MIT Visualizing Cultures

lol this is great

Thanks! lol quite a few feathers I guess. It seemed that was allowed by looking at the comments in the challenge post. But there is a single down feather floating in the top left.

yahkehbu @ 1/2/2017 06:37 commented on Year of the rooster

also the shadows shape under the rooster forms a single feather

I'm not so sure it will be a battle, that term implies we stand a chance. By the time we find it, the computers won't be far behind, if they didn't figure it out first. Perhaps then we will be left with making art simply for love of the process and self-development.
