We need balloons in the game!

Post by Dimond » 05 May 2008, 05:11

I think we need balloons in the game.
I made these balloons in GIMP. I didn't need the clouds and blue sky really, but it's nice touch to it.

I recommend that you try to learn how to shade first, before you start your next pixelart icon peace:

Finish some of your projects to the point of approval before starting a multitude of others.

Sorry it took so long.
A week ago I just learned how to shade on the GIMP so that's what took so long.

Better, now try to get rid of the black outline, and try to make the balloons rounder.

Thanks for your advice.
I changed it a bit and made it rounder and made the black outline go away like you said. :o

It's better. On a side note when I said to get rid of the black outline I actually meant that the outline should be coloured.

this might help you:

Maybe players can walk around with it like this?

What do you think about the idea of players holding balloons?

They are a bit to small for that.

The problem will be animating it. The physics of helium-filled balloons at a string are quite hard to model in pixel art.
