So you're saying that it's not the hilt of a sword embedded in a rock?

Which rocket ship is it then supposed to be exactly?

Bloody artists... ;-)
No. No it’s not.

It’s the rocket ship that I made up! Cos, y’know, that’s what artists, y’know, do... ;)

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Yep, the Fairlight one is brilliant. It's a tad blatant around the rocket, but still a great pic! :D The background graphics from the start of OutRun strike me as similar. Thanks! Haha yeah, if I was doing the Pixel Quest loading screen now, I’d probably change a few things, the clouds being one of...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

'Ghibli'? Nope, can't say I've ever heard of it, nor been influenced by it in any way whatsoever... Ahem. :mrgreen: :D Anyway, home now. So yeah, to allow me to have things in the foreground that also overlaps the sky (as well as used as a framing device and look good ;) ), clouds starting on the h...

Re: "Go-Go BunnyGun", first screen grabs.

Yip, I’d say that clouds are your best pal here. A section of the sky with clouds where the ears are would mean no stippling and therefore no clash or workaround on the ears. It’d also mean you could lower the logo by a couple of pixels, too, which I think would be helpful. On my phone so I can’t sh...

Re: About Horace's "appendage"

Really?! You always thought Horace had a swampy style rat-tail?! :shock: Oh hell no! What I should say that up until quite a few years ago I also thought it was his arm. But then I read about it somewhere, I can’t remember where, possibly a Retro Gamer article or something where William Tang told t...

Re: The best Speccy game by Ocean: discussion

Beach Volley never got a a release in the UK on both the Ocean or Hit Squad labels. I think I it got released under the serve label but God knows which version was released as nobody I’ve ever spoken to ever remembered it getting finished. There was an SU cover demo, though.

Re: The perfect fall/jump

Nice. I guess the exaggeration and base over apex jumps demonstrate that one should forget theory and go with whatever looks good! Bingo! And I recommend this book, which is what I use. I've got it sitting out next to me for reference when I need it while doing Melkhior's Mansion animation. https:/...

Re: Best PC program for sprite animation

I use Photoshop on my laptop for pretty much all my pixels (Spectrum and non-Spectrum), including creating animations, though I’m thinking about giving Aseprite a go, though. When doing full Spectrum stuff I’ll import my graphics into SevenUp and the programmer can use the SEV files if they want. Fo...
