A mockup for the weekly challege. (Submitting again at almost the last minute. Bad, bad, bad habit.)

I wanted to make it look and feel like those old games. Went looking throught a bunch of REALLY outdated RPGs. I think I managed to capture that look pretty well.

Could have polished up a few things here and there (title screen mainly). But the deadline is minutes away, and I'm dead tired. Could'a should'a would'a. Night folks.

You have all the time in the world to revise it :P

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/4/2009 14:42

Yeah, I know, I feel that empty feeling too. That's what happens when you scrable to finish something moments before a deadline. XD

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/4/2009 14:21

Great to finally see some work from you! :P

Now for the bashing...

The whole piece feels very empty. The little pixelling I see is good, but could be improved upon. Try something BIGGER, with more SPUNK, try actually drawing something that is challenging. Would have liked to see you do more with it.

But all that said, great to finally see something from you :DD

The answer to both questions is: Partly. 

Still getting re-adjusted to actually finishing something instead of just deleting it. And still getting used to the tablet.

Finally off your ass? tablet?

Yeah same thing often happens to me... I do half the work within the morning hours just before the end time of the challenge. Slept around 3 or 4 hours last night because of this challenge >< And yea I rushed the end too.

Anyway nice job, you really got the oldschoolish look into it. The last frame perhaps could've wished a tad more work on it though, as perhaps the 2nd one (upper right), though it has a nice simple pokemon feeling to it, hehe.

Yea, you succeeded with the old looks. In the 2nd screen there is the font that might not fit with the old style. I dont know for sure, but it hit my eye.
