I suck at drawing.

Posted by atari2600land, in Game Boy development 09 January 2019 · 105 views

I guess I work okay with coding and stuff, but when it comes to drawing stuff for the games I want to work on, well, I just plain suck at it. I tried to give the face on the title screen a major uplift. I gave him all sorts of new features: Eyebrows (hairy ones), lips, chin, eye veins, etc. This is what it ended up looking like.

I'd like to ask someone for help. Who here can make a good title screen? There are limits I have to adhere to, like the number of different individual 8x8 tiles must be below 47, you only get three colors, the source picture must be 160x144 pixels large (leave room for the face animation at the bottom there.) This latest attempt, for example, has 41 individual 8x8 tiles in it.
 
As for game-play wise, I don't know what else I can do with that. I think it's for the most part finished.






You don't suck. You have improved from the last blog.

 

You just needs more practicing and practicing needs time.

 

Just don't rush with your projects even if they take years to make.
