Undead Dragon Wyvern Dire Wolf Red Dragon Peeker The Apex Hunter The Apex Predator The Apex Stalker Daemon Hound Overview: This new set of graphics is focused around offering resources that allow for greater visual depth and detail than what can usually be found. A great deal of emphasis is placed on modularity to allow for maximum flexibility and creativity, both for the tiles themselves as well as for the characters. The majority of these resource are hand-drawn, with some being rendered from 3D models (the characters primarily, and a handful of the objects). What are these?! 2.5D is a very general term used to describe a 2D perspective that represents a 3D projection or space. This is NOT 3D, it is merely a 2D perspective (in fact, you can't actually recreate this perspective in 3D at all!). In this specific case, the perspective is at a 45 degree rotation. 2.5D graphics are wonderful because they can add much-needed depth and dimension to your game maps. How do you use them? These tiles were designed to be used a lot like Lego building blocks. They are modular in nature and will snap together easily on a 32x32 grid in spite of the fact that they are larger than 32x32 pixels. Due to their basic structure and modularity, this allows you to make an infinite number of structures, rooms, etc. Decals! While these tiles will snap together on 32x32 pixel grid, these resources also include "decals" which are tiles with blended and faded edges. This allows them to be placed almost anywhere and they will fit in. These are fantastic for covering seams, breaking up patterns, or just adding variety! Their uses are virtually endless. Build Your Own Characters In keeping with the concept of modularity, this new generation of character building resources includes TONS of customization of your characters. A variety of base templates can be freely mixed and matched with different outfit pieces such as tops, bottoms, hats, shields, weapons, helmets, hair, facial hair, etc. Each piece of equipment, clothing, hair, etc supports over 70(!!!) animations, all of which are in 8 directional facings. On top of that, there are 24 high-resolution face expressions, 24 high-resolution bust images, and 24 high-resolution paperdoll figures. Each of the 24 showcase different emotions and poses. Speaking of Animations... As of right now there are over 70 animations, each one available in 8 directions. These animations range from walking and running to fighting and sleeping, with so many in between. Fighting animations consist of a number of one and two handed melee attacks, ranged weapon attacks for bows and crossbows, as well as firearms such as pistols, rifles, and machine guns (not to mention unarmed attacks, throwing...) You will simply not find a more comprehensive number of animations for 2D characters anywhere else. I've looked! Ok, but making characters sounds difficult and time-consuming! You'd be right, if it weren't for some fancy new software in development by my friend at Dekita RPG. Some key features: Freely add and edit clothing layers, hair, weapons, etc. Editing layers includes altering colors, setting opacity, saturation, and more. Animation previews (you can cycle through the animations and watch them in real time!) Easy to use and flexible pathing system. Drag and drop the resources into the project folder, it's pretty simple! Project Files: allows you to organize your characters and templates by project. Custom exporting options gives you the ability to choose which animations you want to export. Not everyone is going to need or want all 70+ animations! Flexible template system allows you to set up your own templates and custom animation parameters, faces, etc. This ultimately allows you to use not just my resources, but pretty much any character-making resources. This also means that all of my older resources can still be used by this software as well! *Note: The above image is of the alpha build; the GUI will be cleaned up and organized and the overall look of the software will be a bit different than what is represented here. What about monsters?! No game would be complete without terrible baddies to slay! These monsters come with a whopping 400 frames of animation for walking, running, attacking, getting hit, wounded, and more actions, all in 8 directions! Each monster also has a high-resolution large static image that can be used for front-view battlers, static side-view battlers, promotional material, cutscenes, or any other purpose you can think of! When/Where are they available? PM me for details. Thank you for checking out my latest resources!
