That looks really neat, Khalan! It's a little dark. I realize you want it to be, but it may be a little prohibitively dark.

Thanks! Yeah, I'd considered that after I posted. I'm planning to add a gradient layer set to Multiply so it gets lighter towards the top and darker the lower you get. And/or adding more luminescent sealife.

Added the gradient lighting so it's brighter further up. Also added some sea plants, set to a random image out of three I've drawn (all graphics are hand-drawn) with a random colour tint, distributed on a plant map:

Your screenshot is still a bit dark. Yet we are able to see more. Have you sized it up compared to the previous one ? (It looks like it has scanlines drawn)

Anyway, it looks nice. It sets some ambience, and I guess with the use of some of CC's candy eye tools it must look very nice once animated and on screen.

Keep up the good work.

The forum shrinks the pictures a bit, so I took a smaller screenshot so it didn't resize so much. Yes, it's still fairly dark, but it's meant to be deep down - there will be brighter areas further up nearer the surface. There are scanlines and noise effects added.

It's turning out pretty well. Thanks for the comments!

Here's an example of a lighter area:

Added schools of fish in the background.

Also improved the lighting a bit, this is a deep area:

Damn that looks good. I tried lighting on one of my old games ages ago. And failed miserably. I wish my games had the looks of the games on these forums...

It has a "heart of darkness" character look like :)
The background seems a bit "empty"/redundant but the characters look pretty nice, as well as the FX.
Nice GUI too (looks really pro).

Hard to say more from 2 screenshots, but if you had the means to post a video (even a short one), I'd be happy to watch it and comment more.Kyatric2011-07-26 01:54:31
