EDIT FOR REVISION D:
Here it is! Revision D as requested by Kacper with all changes made. More details, cleaned up areas, better sections of buildings, better shibuya street level details, added some little people, and a train car on the track. This train car will be tiled to form a full length train that will pull into the station and leave. I'VE BEEN WORKING ON THIS PICTURE FOR TOO LONG. IT FEELS AMAZING TO HAVE IT DONE AEISUIGHALSHGFIU.Original REV-C Description:
You were thinking: "A super thin but tall submission?! It must be another tutorial!! WOO!" Then you saw the title. Hahaha sorry to disappoint on this one
Progress so far on the immense background for level one of the project I've signed on with Kacper Antonius. It's been one hell of a picture to work on so far. By far the most complicated thing I've drawn yet.I've enabled critiques
on this because I'm curious to get some information about what you, the possible players of what this still become, think about the look of this so far. Me and Kacper have been doing a lot of back-and-forth interaction about molding this background, but we haven't gone to asking anyone for advice. We were aiming for a graphic style that had a lot of atmosphere, yet utilized a lot of flat vibrant color, with most of the detailing done with line drawing. We've been working to not let things get so complicated that the player gameplay up front will get lost. When implemented, this background will use paralax scrolling in about 6 key places to provide a greater sense of depth and increased altitude. Note that this image is NOT a vertical panorama -- you are supposed to feel like you are actually getting higher off the ground. If you watch me and want to help us out a little, tell us what you think!
Oh for those not paying attention, this background is based off of Tokyo. In fact, there's a section taken directly from Shibuya.
