took me a while to consider this done... more like 1 year D:

I don't believe these qualify as sprites, I'd rather consider them eyecandies for my own pleasure :3. In any case, this was one of my first "projects", and it had to be completed. slowly, but completed.

The wip thread here

each ship has 15 colors, and the preview is 8 frames long.

We are hiring!

Hello ! We’re ProjectorGames, and we’re looking for a retro-style artist for an upcoming spaceship game.

ProjectorGames are best-known for FortressCraft, our 11th released game. FortressCraft is one  of the top-10 best selling indie games of all time, across any platform.

ProjectorGames releases games on Xbox Live’s Indie Games marketplace, IndieCity, GamersGate and Desura and soon OnLive.

ProjectorGames is looking for an artist anyone that thinks (or knows!) they have the skill to be retro-pixel artist for a forthcoming Shmup game - one with a really awesome twist that we’re not quite ready to talk about in public.

We want you to be enthusiastic, reliable and hard-working - location is not important, and neither is past experience nor age.

We are offering royalty-based payment - if the game is even a small amount as popular as FortressCraft, this could be very lucrative! This game is planned for major digital distribution channels, on both PC and Xbox, with the possibility of iOS, PSN and Android ports later on.

If you think this is you, please contact us at *** Message truncated (4000 chars max) ***

Ah what a mischance..

But actually you can draw better things easly and BTW this was good for an earlier PA work.

 Brillant colors and inspiring design, I like it!

It's that SHMUP already done?

My favorite is probably Type-B. I like how it goes from a little normal plane to something giant and badass.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 9/4/2008 12:04
I'll think about it...

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/3/2008 22:57
Submit it like that.
They don't look that great at 2x zoom honestly. :/

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 9/3/2008 21:54
excellent :D ...

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 9/3/2008 21:30
there you go.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/3/2008 20:38
Wtf, make them 1x

cure (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 9/3/2008 15:12
These look great in action.

A.B. Lazer (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/3/2008 14:02
They rock. I'd say that Type R Lv1 and Lv2 plus Type G Lv3 are my favourites.

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/3/2008 13:34
I remember these! I loved them! :D :D :D

Hey Metaru this ships look at very well ... maybe just blue need more smoke because in another two smoke is more visible.

chess (Level 8 Shodan) @ 9/3/2008 11:29
fukk hell...

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 9/3/2008 11:29
Yes, love B.

Glad to see this finally submitted :3

Huzzah! I remember seeing this in the WIP forum so long long ago. Glad to see you finished it.

I really like Type B.
