Final concepts. All of them need touch ups like getting rid of some jaggi-ish parts, coloring shading and blending but overall looking quite good.

Cocept is named "Farscope" for now.
Any Coder interessted in the Sprites?

Spoiler

standard ship, will make a second standard ship with an attached cargounit
Farscope Attackship 1Farscope Attackship 2
Farscope Attackship 3.1 Farscope Attackship 3.2

Made reticle inspired faction icon and logo

[close]

I'll leave this here and fuel some speculation :P

Spoiler

[close]

Won't be a while until it comes out though, :)

Though I am a bit concerned with how the color tone came out on the front part, it's bit off,

Animated? animated?!? pls? Looking high class as almost always ;=




@icepick
Yeah you're right. It's the resized part of an onslaught, will have to smooth it out by hand. urg ;)




@sprog

The problem would be there are 3 images for the loading bar. Image one is the bar itself, the background. Image 2 is the glow, the actual progress bar. And image number 3 is the logo itself, it shows on the title screen and all the pictures overlap in the before mentioned order. To make the Logo itself getting coloured i would have to make it partly transparent and that would effect the look of it on the title screen aswell. so hm. don't know.

My second ship a tie defender.

I am curious how you make lines smooth.I am using gimp.

It's called AA for short, or Anti_Aliasing for long and it sounds as fun as it actual is ;)

Some tutorials:

Thanks for the links. So I tried to add some AA. Is it any better?

Lighting effects.

Lighting plus scaled down width.

Think you might of just blurred everything down a bit too much, Depending on the software tool your using but since you said , you could use the line tool in photoshop, it naturally produces anti aliased lines, but if your going to do that, I recommend starting with a larger picture then downsizing to your current fighter size. I think a slightly better gradientation of the white lines would help too.

Hehehe instant fat ship :P Though the off angle sticks on the front left with the swiggly front always make me think it just had a fender bender with a neighbouring ship






I did some tweaking, not sure if it's for the better either, but opinions?
but yes, the ring is animated (when it's finished) :D

Might need to take a tally, of which one is the most preferable, the first, the middle one or the last :P

one in the middle!
first one has too much complexity difference between the front and the back imo.

  common people , take  closer look at the Neutrino capital ships & say it again "the middle one "
there is no match
