Sort of old work. They get cut off ingame near the top, and the sides for every layer except the first so that's why they look like they've been painted in very quickly. They could all use one pass to clean up some parts but most of the bg is obscured in game so it doesnt matter a whole ton.

<<33 Nice to see you still kicking man! Done a lot of foliage related things over the years so thats probably why haha

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/26/2018 05:55

Thanks Ilkke! Yeah that's somethings thats very prominent in a lot of old side scrollers. If you're talking about detail and referring to "pushing some areas" in regards to the Opacus's convo, I think I mean maybe just tidying up some sloppy parts like some of the bird statue plummage on the last pic, etc.

Thank you so much again, I do spend a lot of time on colour so it looks like it's paying off 

Dokitsu (Level 9 PS1) @ 12/25/2018 15:54

No words... an awesome work as ever, my old friend ADM.

I love the forest/jungle bgs the most, but everything just looks in place; dig the lighting!

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/25/2018 02:08

Great stuff.

IMO the old-school habit of cramming tons of detail into the background was detrimental to the game itself so less busy can be much better.

The colours and lighting and all is great, and that's what counts!

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/22/2018 04:13

Defo understand, though I think you're a prime example of how pixel art doesn't have to be that. (Plus, it's not like I can never appreciate kitsch.) Hope you don't ditch it completely still because you've got some real talent :)

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/21/2018 06:39

Yeah I totally feel you about how strict pixelart can be. That's the reason why I've taken a huge liking to digital painting and drawing and hope to ditch pixelart alltogether in future (at least not doing it frequently). Only hanging on it pixelart for freelance reasons

In regards to these though, I think I could defnitely push some areas a bit more but time restrictions and style differences with the rest of the game were sort of a problem with these bgs. Really happy you see the big strokes as a positive =) Thanks man!

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/21/2018 05:01

Totally loving your painterly, almost lightly impressionist style. It's impressive how well you render with such seemingly loose strokes. There's a beautiful fluidity to it. It feels like a breath of fresh air with how rigid and overly polished, bordering on kitsch, pixel art can sometimes be. 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/20/2018 08:12

Thanks so much kristina! I'll see when I can post the rest of them, hope you enjoy the game <3

Eggy (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/20/2018 00:31

Awesome! Very happy to see some more backgrounds from EI on PJ courtesy of you  Godlike work!

And I didn't even notice you uploaded it until I saw a familiar looking thumbnail under weekly showcase just now lol

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/19/2018 07:23

Looks like fools gotta step up his preview game now :^)

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 12/19/2018 00:27

This is outstanding. I thought it was Fool from the preview but the scribble "plz click" really had me confused. The lighting is really great in this.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/18/2018 14:46
