Hey! This is a mockup of some new graphics for my game. You can check out the some of the devolopement here http://www.wayofthepixel.net/index.php?topic=15403.0
(I had most of it finished by the time I posted it though.)
wow. great draw
Thanks for the comments guys!
Riley- oops, yeah I didn't notice that. Thanks for pointing that out.
I love this. Well done.
I'm not really sure if you forgot the white outline on the reflection, or left it for design purposes. I saw this over at Pixelation, it looks good.
Oh, and compared to the previous Ninja run cycle you have in your gallery, I really like the new color on him, makes him much more vibrant.
Yeah, while individually the water is very stylish, it's doesn't resonate with the rest of the piece so much.
When I first looked at it, I had a problem understanding what I was looking at - all I saw was the background. The saturation of the forest, as well as how bright it is, makes it draw the eye first. However, in motion, it may not be an issue. It's a tough situation with a black sprite though.
Still, everything taken individually is pretty great.
(oh, and while it's a common thing in platformers, that is a very tall flower - it's up to his knee! That's just me bein' silly though, don't change it)
I really like the ninja character :)
as for the bg I would suggest not having the lake so square, instead give it a more realistic touch.. same with the mountain part
Also I'd love to see some highlight on the splashes made by the Ninja. :)
