These are old as well. Mid 2006. Adjusted colours a bit, otherwise untouched.
No idea, probably retired from games though.
Amazing stuff! I just looked up some Toaplan games and I really see the similarites. I wonder what Ogihara is up to these days.
I think that the guy who developed this style was Naoki Ogihara while still at Toaplan, you can see it in stuff like Truxton 2, but even earlier in places. And then later in his work on Donpachi, Dodonpachi and Dangun Feveron. And Gekirindan was directed by a former Toaplan programmer iirc, and is a love letter to Toaplan games in general, lots of nods and references in that game to all sorts of Toaplan titles. As well as the overall style of the graphics.
Reminds me of Gekirindan ships
Great pink machinery.. reminds me; I saw some pink tank you did for someone on Pixelation that looked really awesome too.
That works well, especially with these colours.
This is inspiring.
good job! ;)
good details ! awesome !
I am blown away by this piece! Words fail me to describe how awesome this is!
They look far better than anything actually from that game. Especially the top left one.
Love the sword-like one *_*
For some reason when i saw the preview i thought this was by Opacus. But in any case it's fantastic! I wish my old work looked half as good. :D
Yes, great Toaplan style!
Nice job, good spaceship design.
Top two are epic.
Delayed damage area attack ftw
