 This is part of a game I'm working on at the moment, a vertical shmup, basically combining a lot of fine gameplay elements from my favourite shmups. I'm not one to do much animation, especially for game sprites, so this was all fun and experience for me. C+C if you wish to

Update 24/03/2010:

Added transparency, increased contrast, reduced colour count.

Thanks :). Ive been looking over that collab and considering making an entry, Id rather do a different ship for it, because 1) this is game material, and 2) I like making ships! :)

Looks awesome. Did you enter this in the collab "make a spaceship"? Or is it not allowed to do both the game and the collab at the same time?

Lovin' that awesome animation, especially the lighting as the fighter shifts.  Completely awesome. *****

 Ahh thanks Weasel I can see what you mean. But the game generally will play on darkish backgrounds so hopefully those darker yellows will simply be a blending.

Thanks Blueberry_pie, i checked out your Shmup ship, its sort of like R-Type from above, in a way...

 The animation and lighting on this piece are pretty jaw dropping, I can see this in a GBA game or something of the like.

The only thing I can possibly say as a critique is that during some stages of the morphing animation (as the fins become larger and move forward) the outlines on the yellow fins distract my eye a little.

Awesome... much better than my SHMUP ship :)
