I haven't made much progress on Super Chibi Knight for the last couple weeks because of a side project mobile game I'm doing to earn some cash. The side project is turning out fabulously and really stretching my art skills to reach new levels.
I'm actually really enjoying just focusing on art, it's a nice break from my one-man-band usual. Unfortunately the side project is super hush hush at the moment so I can't show anything, but when it's closer to being done, you'll get to see what I'm talking about.
One thing I started doing that sounds so simple, but has helped step up my art game, is to start out with a larger default stage size. I've been doing 950x550. The game itself isn't at those dimensions, but the extra space has made me feel free to draw larger and with more flair and then, when I zoom in for details, everything turns out way better. I KNOW THIS SOUNDS LAME, but try it!
Ok, maybe I can sneak in one thing: http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/367adce75d060fc625d5526c61e37e98
Also, what do you guys think of having a "beast" in super chibi knight that is a MECHA?
