Game Asset – 2D Character Sprite Sheet

This asset was created for a project that my good friend Paul (koromakesthings.com) and I were making for a game jam at school.  We decided on the 2D pixel look for our game so I decided to try my hand at pixel art.  What resulted were these sprite sheets with 8 characters and some thought bubbles.  The characters are supposed to be students in a class and therefore they have no body, or at least their body is very minimal.  The teacher on the other hand is meant to pace up and down the screen and so I created full body animations of him moving about during his lecturing duties.  Feel free to download and use the sprite sheet in your own projects.  All I ask for is a little credit where credit is due.

This project taught me a lot about designing 2D sprite based games.  The work put into a single sprite sheet can be immense just to get the exact action you want out of the character.  We could have settled for lower quality, simpler sprites, but I wanted to dive into 32-bit characters being the dingus I am.  I started the project by looking at other sprites online.  From that I created a base character face template for myself that I could use on all of the characters.  Over the course of the project I created the sprite sheet as it is (about 4 hours a day) and spent the time creating some GIF images from them as well.  Here are a couple GIFs running their animations.

Game Asset – M98A1 Barrett 50cal Rifle

Maya

This was my first ever attempt at using Maya for creating 3D models.  I created this model as a prop for an assignment in which I needed to create some special effects.  A video of the effect created can be found under the video section of the site for those who are curious.  The model took me about 5 days to complete (I was literally learning Maya from scratch while attempting to build the model).  This is a very high resolution model that contains 16867 verts and 12942 faces.  Since the model was made to be stationary in the scene and the quality of the project was of high importance I believe the astronomical amount of polys is fine for what I was using it for. The gun can be dismantled.  it consists of the barrel, bolt, magazine, upper stock, and lower stock.  The separate pieces allow for easy animation of the object.  The internal structure of the stock is bare.  I did not include internal components like springs and such. I plan on making a low poly version in the future. Watch for it!
