This is what the bas level will look like for the tutorial level minus the trees hill incline and house. This was made in photoshop inspired by platformers like Super Metroid and super mario. These layers are all separate so paralaxing isn’t a problem and for easy editing. I work on his from the back forward so sky then mountains and so on.
This is the updated character sprite for running, jumping, sliding and crouching. I did all of these separately using my digital sketch pad to help with making the character look soother. I edged away from the pixelated character as I feel it looks better in the environment and as a character in a smooth form. This was made in photoshop based of the sketch designs I did on paper of the roman solider.
