An epic sunset battle between an intrepid adventuring hero and a wicked frogman creature.

I made this 3 times, the first 2 times the main files corrupted and I lost enthusiasm. Now, ages later, it is COMPLETED! The background is 44 colours, I believe. Overall it's 92.

Thanks to the good guys over at Pixelation who helped me get that little bit more out of the pieces. www.wayofthepixel.net/index.php

Enjoy

Wow amazing background.

I've done a bit of colour switching to make the ground reflect the sunset. Thanks, Faceless.

Red on the tops of the pines and red sunset brings a very nice atmosphere :)

Very good point, Faceless! I should look into that Yes, it was originally a moon/night scene.

Can't say I've ever heard of Barbarian, Carnivac. Does looks similar though

The background is excellent but kind of confusing to me at the same time. Was this always supposed to be a sunset scene? I can't help but feel the grass looks like it's being lit by the moon.

I like it more when the frog had horizontal pupils. Still good, though.

I thought I'd seen a background like it before.  Many many years ago, but now I've done some checking I think my mind mixed the backdrop of this http://www.cpc-power.com/images/ecran_jeu4/40.png with the sky of another of the same game's backgrounds http://www.cpc-power.com/images/ecran_jeu5/40.png  anyways again nice work on this.

Thanks guys!

It seems that each other has different areas of gripe. Some people love the frogman, others hate him. One loves the frogman but hates the hero. At least everyone likes the background. :)

This is designed as a supposed mock-up, so the characters and background are all separate entities, really. That's why I've not concerned myself greatly with the high colour count.

man that frog got me, best frog character i have seen.

saw the progress  on pixelation! Impressive work :D


user
Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/18/2013 07:47

Nice landscape.  I don't like the character on the right at all but the frogman on the left has charm. 


user
Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 3/18/2013 05:34

I've seen the progress on pixelation :lurk: this final version is totally awesome. The most impressive part to me is the landscape; the sunset and perspective are gorgeous


user
Sanfrouah (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 3/18/2013 02:22

Wow! This is awesome! Just one thing, may the characters   shadows  on the ground could be more streched because the sun is low. But if you see your piece as a screen shot from an RPG, the shadows are alright.

This is exceptional. Outstanding background!

 That is AWESOME

frogman only looks "wicked" by comparison 


user
Pirata (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/17/2013 20:05

amazing! the sunset is incrible!


user
Cyangmou (Level 8 Marshal) @ 3/17/2013 19:25

I don't even care about the amount of colors - I think a really simplified style would destroy here a lot of the feeling anyways. It's a pity that you went with this frog and don't tried to find something more creative, but nonetheless I really like this.

hehe the lily-pad spear tip. THAT BG RULES too!

Well put!

I prefer the other frog.  And the blue of the staff is too overpowering


user
jimlockey (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2013 13:36

 That landscape is, in word, breath taking.


user

 Lovely colors

 I love this sky.

 Perfect.

- Agreed, It is a beautiful piece! -


user
Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 3/17/2013 12:44

Aye - you have a lot of colors, but it's not problematic at all. It looks gorgeous. I don't know what it is about the texture on the frog's skin, but it's really amazing.


user

 Color restricting is so over-rated. True color restricting is using the correct ammount of colors to pull off what you as an artist are trying to achieve. You've done this beautifully. Truly inspiring work. And that's a lot of soft detail in such a small canvas! =]


user
EvilEagles (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/17/2013 12:21

 That's quite an amount of colors there. But regardless, you did a very great job sir. Love the atmosphere.


user

Inspiring.
