I managed to finish up the 'battle' concept art! Doing the background alone was way, way more work than I thought it would be. At the very least, this project has given me a deep respect for the artists in the game industry.
Press 'Read More' to see a few more pictures and some thought process.
I'm not going to talk as much this time around. I had to look up a lot of reference material on how to make trees, leaves, roads and grass look good in pixel art without filling up all of the screen pixel by pixel.
Next week I'm going back to working on mechanics rather than doing more drawing. I want to work on a mechanic where the player can play an instrument, similar to the Nintendo 64 Zelda games.
