Last week I made Dean and Sam sprites. Sprites are the little pixelly people who walk around in a video game. This week I made a Cas sprite, and imported all of them into the game to see how they look. Yay! Progress!
So let's look at Castiel's Purgatory outfit:
And his hair:
Now, poor xoferew does not really know how to do the animation of walking in a tiny trenchcoat but without doing extensive research I'm going to guess that when one steps forward the coat moves out of the way of that leg. It doesn't necessarily work as in real life because these sprites are a weird proportion with really short legs so who knows. How about this?
I think he's pretty cute but I need to go back and improve that dirt on the back of his coat. Some day. Just to remind people, I am adapting the basic people who come with the game. I don't want to take credit for drawing these sprites from scratch. This sprite already had a jacket and I just elongated it and frowned and grumbled at it. I did the hair from scratch and I tweaked his eyes to be droopy in an Adorable Screwup fashion. I don't like their faces to be identical but there's only so much that can be done. Sam has a bit of a tan for some reason. Because he goes out jogging in the sunshine every day?
Now! Let's put the guys on the map that I made a couple weeks ago and see how they look. Sam has a new jacket today. He is now looking less Fourth of July and more Christmas Elf.
Here is everyone's scuffed up version: and the more colorful original pic:
All of these pics look fuzzy because I've blown them up a bit. Here are the boys standing in some bushes.
What will I work on next? I can't decide. The car? Some non-Purgatory scenery for Sam to run around in looking for Dean? Some monsters to fight? Or I could start tackling the game mechanics. Hmmm...
Thanks for reading. Suggestions welcome!
