Next stage of designing my Sparkster, The Rocket Knight ZBrush sculpt.

He’s finally out of his default T-pose, which is refreshing..

Can we all agree that Metal Slug has some of the best pixel art of all time?

The Metal Slug team is absolutely fucking crazy
No one said “hey, we need you guys to create like a dozen giant intricately-animated bosses at a totally ridiculous resolution”
THE LIGHTING CHANGES WHEN THE CANNON GOES OFF AND EVERYTHING
THE PLAYER CHARACTERS ALL HAVE LITTLE RELOAD ANIMATIONS IN A GAME WHERE YOU NEVER ACTUALLY HAVE TO STOP SHOOTING

AND JUST IMAGINE THE THOUGHTS THAT WENT THROUGH THEIR HEAD WHEN THEY MADE THESE




JESUS

AND THAT’S WHY I FUCKING LOVE METAL SLUG.

I aspire to make pixel sprites this fucking awesome.

Indie game devs that make really shitty-looking pixel “art” need to take a lesson from Metal Slug. Pixel art in old games like that aren’t about “how minimal can the design be given the hardware provided?”, they were more like “with the hardware provided, how much can be done with it?”

SNK’s sprite work, especially in the Metal Slug games is a huge inspiration for me. Garou: Mark of the Wolves had fantastic animation and presentation also.

Omg. It’s. All. So. Beautiful.
