Some Bit. Trip CORE art
This was a pain to make but it was totally worth it!
I first started with a few sketches. I actually finished the art right now so I’m way too tired and through with this project so I have no scans.
Next I made a little prototype version seen above. I was actually pretty happy with this at first but I didn’t like the angle and Commander Video was a bit too “thick”. This thing took maybe 30 minutes or at the most an hour to make.
Next I made a thinner version and at a different angle. This actually actually took a few days to make surprisingly. I was having trouble with the angle it was in. You’d think it would be easy seeing how the design isn’t as complex but I guess I had a huge brain fart.
After this I had a huge problem as I didn’t know what to do with the background. I mean the backgrounds in the Bit.Trip games are super complex for me. I was so freaked out because I wasn’t skilled enough to make it.
In the above picture the red originally supposed to be a sort of desert thing. I don’t know why really but I chose that. It was supposed to have mountains and everything.
The random dots appearing are just what they are, random. I was originally going to have bunch of different dots appearing from different sides of the screen but it was too much of a hassle to make it work as I had to make sure that it would a complete repeating animation and I really didn’t want to calculate each thing.
Anyway I decided to make the red into a border instead and really I feel the random dots are a bit out of place but I really don’t want to fix it right now.
This project was done frame by frame, on MS paint, with multiple layers.
It took about 4 days to complete. I’m exhausted.
