Colored Combat Background
July 22, 2013 - C-Qcumber
Remember that half-colored artwork we showed you last time? It's now fully colored! Done in pencil and watercolor, here's the result after it's scanned:
As beautiful as it might look, we'll have to tone it digitally again. The colorful mix might get tiring in a game you'll play for hours, and we'd want the combat sprites to be the center piece, not flooded down by the background itself. The tone of the story is also darker and grittier, a background this bright wouldn't fit that feeling. Also, that crevasse in the middle of the image gets weird when combined with the attack animations designed for flat surfaces.
The original piece of the artwork shown above (A4, watercolored) is one of the rewards available for our SAGE tier backers.
We thought that this update would consist of that one image, and we're okay with that as long as we keep you updated. But wait -- they've done the digital retouch too! We still haven't remade the user interface, but you can enjoy this mockup while we build the playable combat in Unity for you to try out.
What do you think about the upgrades so far? Do tell us in the comments! =D
