middle section needs more work


getting closer, but at the same time there needs to be more… difference in colour


still messing with backgrounds


this is what I’ve been doing btw - big strip that’ll act as a scrolling background

I HATE THIS WHALE

I HATE THIS WHALE


i’m so sick of whales

janky at parts but I don’t care I’ll fix it later I’m MOVING ON


lagging with any progress because just thinking about doing all the in-between frames for this whale makes me groan with boredom, let’s just do it…

still janked, getting there though - it’s almost 8am so I’m gonna stop now!
(not sticking with that dark fill btw, that’s just for now)

in-between whale frames and size comparison to other sprites

yeah, this needs more in-between frames… I guess it looks janky because each frame’s image covers a much larger distance than the smaller things do?
Look at me, learning things.

I spent the better part of an hour earlier pixeling a whale but didn’t like it so I’ve started again! oh yeah and I know their tails aren’t like that… but I think it looks cooler this way B)

experimenting with, uh… colouring techniques I guess? But pixels? I remember a flash series I used to watch, I think it was called tiny plaid ninjas… and the character’s colouring would be left blank (I assume) and then a static image background (of a plaid pattern) would show through. I remember thinking that look was pretty neat, so I tried it out with this shark. It also leaves you the option then of removing the lines and just having a sort of ghost image which I quite like the look of too.
