Jannar: first, thanks for showing it to Tiller.
No problem! We talk almost regulary, when he's not busy. I didn't even ask him to comment it
Bill is always helpful.

That's alright

Now to write something in my "defense" :
as i said- this is not a scene from a game, it's AVI animation... the whole scene from screenshot is on for 5 seconds and is fully animated, so i found out that additional details on bg would be unnecessary.

Also, that's why the clean look- AVI compression adds too much noise already and most of the details are getting lost anyway (not to say gradients don't look so clean anymore).

Backgrounds for in-game locations are of course more detailed (the ones for cut-scenes/intro were colored entirely in Flash, to avoid Flash's problems that appear with bitmap pictures when you move the camera or zoom).

Agree about outline on character. I intentionaly made lines and coloring more "neutral", but i guess a bit darker lines and brighter coloring would really make his face easier to read.

Anyway, as i said, you need to see it in motion for real effect
Cool, I forgot to tell him all that

I'll tell him that!

I can't wait for Ignac2 to be finished. Do you have much left?
