Oh man, way back when. I hardly used it.

Let me check if I've got another under another account. :)

You know I'm all for LPC asset management. :) I'd gladly help; I meant to do it myself, except my heath's been bombing so bad the last few months.

In any case, I'd love to discuss how things could be sorted most efficiently and help out on a team?

That looks incredible. I'd love to see my past art pieces translated into pixel art-- I'd be a lot more likely to give open licenses for the less detailed, digital-painty versions, too.

The only problem is that OGA doesn't support non-commercial licenses, so... we'd need the studio version to make use of it here, I believe.

^^ Thank you, Spring! No, I wouldn't make it a huge project or anything.

Immediate to-do list I had in mind if I worked at it a bit more:

  • Scrolling paralax style background layers (I have the layers, they're just stationary)
  • Figuring out what the hell to do with the aspect ratio
  • Draw my own, larger asteroids, because scaling / pixel size weirdness
  • Cool ship-blasting-off-screen on the level clear
  • Start menu 'scene' with a credits list

Adding an endless mode, enemy ships, and short term weapon and shield drops might be fun someday, but that's not something I'd reach for immediately. :)

Thank you!

I rewrote a bunch of the scotch-taped classes and such since then. Most of the changes are invisible, but I gave the big asteroids hit points and changed my formula for breaking and scattering. I also added a 'press to start' at the beginning so it doesn't just barrel into play.

Is there any interest in me continuing this?

Something like this or this? Both CC0, so use it however, no credit required.

I don't really count pixel-work as the same sort of thing-- not because it's an invalid art form at all, but because it doesn't really use any of the same part of the brain or the same focus. I can't even look at a painting for long periods of time. Pixel-by-pixel button clicks? Not nearly as painful.

For reference-- this is one of the last things I painted before I got sick:

Heh... It'll be eighteen months of unending migraine next week.

The constaint pain is tolerable most of the time, but the fatigue and the weakness and the 'having trouble standing up' parts are probably the worst. Not to mention the foggy-head and the inability to read or draw. Bleh.

@Spring - No, these are just LPC additions I'm designing. I'm adding a fair number of Victorian and steampunk-ish items because I like the genre and style, not to mention I have a project that will use them when I've got a few more brain cells, but there's no theme overall.

I also happen to be a novelist, so one of the ways I'm deciding what to draw comes from identifying a character I can't represent well with the current LPC set, and making them an outfit. I've got bionic limbs, tattoos, hair styles in mind, too. Someday. :)

Pretty hard day-- but my doctor's back from vacation tomorrow! I should be feeling better.

Started with a bra and underwear, then tried some variations on the same red dress. The bottom row shows off how it fits with the other pieces I've made.
