Bushes/leaves added as well as some man made blocks. And a poopy knight duder.

Haha, thanks, that tut by Tsugumo is pretty classic, there are a lot better reads on pixelart nowadays though.

tepples: I have to play with that sometime, thanks.

I just wanted to say that all of what you've drawn here is amazing.

This is AWESOME! You are very talented, to make such visuals with NES limits. :D

Thank you :)

Big Nestopia screenshot.

tepples: So I did some importing with your editor thing, which kinda worked, but not as intended. For some reason there is a massive black area at the top of the image as you can see. It kinda got shoved down. The input image was 256x224 pixels, which should be fine, no? Any ideas.

Try a 256x240 image and see if that works any better. I might have made a boo-boo in the converter.

Thanks, that worked.

I think this looks pretty nice. I guess you'd have to have a pretty dark TV to not see the darker blue/cyan colours. Seems like the palette I am using is a bit hueshifted compared to Nestopia's default.

Did you enable the ntsc mode? The screenshot looks like standard bilinear filtering. Make sure it's set to composite.

Yeah, I am not using computers since yesterday. I set filter to NTSC and set it to composite. Looks good to me. Feel free to download the .sav file I linked and open it in tepples editor to check for yourself.

Some way, some how, this stuff needs to end up in a homebrew game. Hard part is creating the game play that could do it justice. Not sure if we've ever seen anything on this level before around these parts, it'd be a crying shame for it to never see a completed game that it deserves.

Would be cool to make some action platformer out of this. But right now I do not have enough time. But sure. If a good coder would be up for it, I'm game.

And about me being pretty good at pixelart, I've been doing it for almost 10 years, 8 years professionally, so I'd hope that I was decent by now :D

Lots of people have been doing it longer, and are not nearly as good (me included)! :mrgreen:

All I can say is keep up the good work. I like most of your pixel art, but being a NES programmer I'm obviously excited about seeing more NES stuff!

That is some very nice work. Hopefully your schedule clears up so we can see more, in a game... :D

tokumaru: The important qualifier you missed was 'professionally'. I think any artist doing pixelart for 8 years to earn his bread should be pretty good with this kinda stuff. Also an added bonus with me is that I absolutely love working with restrictions, I find them fascinating and fun.

never-obsolete: Here's hope :)

EDIT:

And old mockup I made, changed it to the NTSC colours. Should confirm to limitations. 3 tile palettes, 2 sprite palettes.

Very cool art, ptoing! I've seen your work on pixelation, etc. before. The reason this would fail in an NES screen editor is that your global BG colour is obviously black, but you have cyan from one palette overlapping with orange bushes in the top-right of your pic. Can't be done that way on the NES, I'm afraid.

How many shades of orange are there in the bushes? It looks like those could be done with black, dark orange, light orange, cyan.
