It looks good, but the explosion doesn't fit...
Maybe with outlines it would fit.... I dunno

Sorry to ruin your image

The image is good tho'.

The pics look good but, if I, humble moaners, can complain, two thing seems strange to me :
- the explosion look weird, I don' know it doesn't fit with the design of the rest of the picture
- the explosion doesn't seem to cast shadow or light on the wall but i'm not sure of this.

Apart from that i'm impressed by the style/

It looks good, though I wouldn't have guessed from this still that the orange thing is an explosion. (Is it?)

I hope the game as a whole turns out as well as the artwork. I can't wait for the playable demo.

Love the character!
I agree with others however, that the explosion doesn't fit the drawing style (don't know how it looks in motion though). Maybe it would look better to use simple "cartoon" hand-drawn explosion (with outlines, etc.).

Yeah, I'm not satisfied with the explosion either. It's not the outlines that's the problem, in my opinion, because I'm not using outlines throughout the game either.

I think the explosion looks better when it's in motion but still not quite good enough.

I've made another scene today and I'm a bit more satisfied about that one. Here's another screenshot:

I don't know the word in english so 'ill say it in french:
comme ça tue!!!!
trans :
This can definitely be considered as a beautiful-I say- marvelous!, piece of art that just seems to want to get out of the screen and says ' eyh, i'm from a kickass game'. Definitely

Thanks

Well, I've got material for a demo but I'm the kind of guy that is never satisfied and so I keep changing stuff time after time. I've been through six EGO's already and some rooms have been redrawn 3 times.

I'm afraid to release a demo too soon and that the quality could've been better.

I think I'll release a demo when the entire project's at 35% completed or so. How long that takes? I have no idea...

Hehe, sounds familiar. I have often the same problems

Anyway, i really hope the demo will come out soon... I need a new cartoon-adventure fix... now!

Wow, the first image really inspired a lot of thinking. I've already made up a little scene in my mind.

The game is gonna play on board a space ship, isn't it? I'd love that. You don't get that many sci-fi adventures. The commercial Orion Conspiracy and the Star Trek adventures are the only ones I can think of. edit ... and Space Quest, of course.

It's going to be a comedy scifi adventure, but not a spoof (like SpaceQuest was)

Around 35% of the game will be on board of a ship, indeed. Other locations include some different planets, earth in the future, aboard a huge space station and much more.
