Post your Construct-made creations!

Hi,

Hi pap560 I wouldnt normally comment on a thread like this but Id say to you keep it up and see where it goes for you. Even if you dont sell anything for a while at least youve created an asset, and improved your skills you can use towards a portfolio for any future prospective employer. There is still demand for 2d sprite artists for mobile gaming and such. You can always try your hand at 3d also.

My suggestion. That particular sprite animation isnt something I would use in my games so you would probably want to think about better to targeting your sprite creation skills by finding out what people may want first. I think the value you offer is not the spite you create but your ability to create good quality relevant sprites people will pay for.

Good luck

Thank you guys. Your suggestions are really very useful for me. The 'Your Creations' section, refers to project creations. It would be nice if there was a section only for the game resources.

inkBot bring up some good ideas. And, so you have practice, why not start making just random sprites for free? That way, in a couple weeks, maybe you'll actually have something worth buying.

(Not to insult your first idea.)

Why don't you use them yourself? You could have the worlds first game about a camp alien!

Your sprite looks very cool indeed.Im using 3d models and then i render them so that i can use them in 2d games.There still is a market for spritesheets if you want to sell some ,But then these spritesheets must be at the very least as good as the streetfighter sheets to name an example.And even the streetfighter sheets are going for free seeing that they are copyrighted.

Create a demo game with your sprite to show how good the sprite will animate and behave in different scenarios.That may get people interested in buying the actual sheets.But with all this new tech at almost everyone's disposal it would be very difficult to sell any sheets for whatever reason.

Selling 3d models on the other hand is still very popular seeing that not everyone can create 3d characters or cars.Although that seems to be changing as well.I can create highly detailed models with zbrush ,Blender3d and even daz3d in a manner of minutes.So one of these days 3d models will also see a decline in the market as 3d model creation programs are getting more user friendly as they come out.

Thank you guys for your comments.
Actually I am an experienced C++ programmer. I feel tired all these years using this powerful programming language. Recently I found the Construct and I am very impressed when looking to its functionality and the easiness of its use.
To be honest I am thinking for a simple game. The Alien sprite is a 'product' of these thoughts. I've done many efforts in 3D but, besides all my efforts, I could say that I am not talented in concept design and 3D modeling. If I go to 2D through 3D then I will have to pay for the models which are not unique also. I feel more comfortable in direct 2D and Construct now is giving me the chance of building some simple games with my own 2D resources.
Although I feel very comfortable with the criticism I've received for setting up a small fee, I still believe that 1,00 is not an amount which is specifies sales. Perhaps I did a mistake. I don't know. Any way, you can download the files of this sprite from the links bellow:

I hope someone will use it (in any commercial or non commercial project) and enjoy.
