Client Work: Woods background

woods_bg_lores

A forest background for my client Brian’s visual novel.  (Yes!  I’m on to the backgrounds now that the sprites for the main cast are complete!  🙂 )  Painting trees is always fun – so many different shapes and textures.

New Client Work: Cat Sprite

gunther_cat_lores.png

A housecat character sprite for a client’s visual novel.

This was a bit of a challenge.  All the other character sprites for the game are humanoid and shown from about mid-thigh up, so I needed to come up with a good way to display a small quadruped on screen that wouldn’t make it look like it was just floating in mid-air among the humans.  I opted to put a frame of sorts behind it to show that it’s occupying a different space than the human characters.

(By the way, researching for this character was fun, because it pretty much meant looking at tons of cute cat photos online. 🙂 )
