  • Up to 64 colors
Here are a few examples, from the  simplistic look of sonic or metal slug (sorry gba version ^^) to the hardcore SFA3 ....  don't stick to those, there are so many other kind of menus...  good luck!

Elk and AdamPlays win. D: Elk wins because his character has a penis, and Adam wins because... because yeah.

I kinda wanna join, but I dunno if I could handle it. I have an art history exam AND a geography exam this week. /cry

Adam, mouhahaha (french laugh) *smells* like a stylus DS gameplay would fit perfectly for this game

is it serious Doctor?

three reasons for that,
*I really suck at characters/sprites..

*I like to have an idea of how will look the picture before starting the details..

*I like to finish by the best

I can pretty much guarantee that I will not get this finished in time (ever?) but I thought I'd at least take a stab at the challenge.

Just working on composition, roughing out the characters, starting on outlines and attempting to pixel my text by hand. So C&C on any of those aspects would be cool.

Take two jpegs and call me in the morning.



* I always find that aspect of pixelart fascinating. Its very evenly divided so end result is not affected by either process.

I concur. This looks really nice so far Anlina S.

I also like how Setzer's is coming along with the colouring. I'd really like to make something for this if I had the time :(

wow so many entries suddenly!

Mil , it looks very promising! can't wait to see more!

Loop, it's really going in a good direction!

VIC, pretty strong style! I think the hair or the bandana under the ear on your sketch was good, I wouldn't remove it..

Wish, nice! so soft..

1up, that's not bad! you still have time, you can polish it more!

Larwick.. hmmm...so you're one of those ForeGround first, background second pixel pushers...
(amazing character..)

Art sempai, so fast!

here is a pretty messy update
finally starting the character..

what do you think of the new arrow?
