This post is also available on my Patreon. Join up and get pixel art for your game!

Hey everyone, I’m here today with another Work-In-Progress Wednesday! Hope you’ve all been well- I took some time off for Thanksgiving and it was great. I’ve been playing some games, hanging out with my family, putting up some Christmas decorations, and finally taking a chance to relax. Hope those of you who also celebrate Thanksgiving had a good holiday!

Unity Update

First off, I’d like to just let everyone know again that I’m creating Unity packages for my asset packs! They’re sure to be useful for those of you creating games in Unity.

A full list of them is here: https://assetstore.unity.com/publishers/18465

New since last time we talked about Unity:

  • Super Pixel Impact FX Pack 1 (approved since last time)
  • Super Pixel Item Pickups: Sci-fi Pack 1 (approved since last time)

Coming soon (in approval queue):

  • Super Pixel Blood FX Pack 1
  • Super Pixel Fantasy FX Pack 1
  • Super Pixel Item Pickups: Fantasy Pack 1
  • Super Pixel Projectiles Pack 1
  • Super Pixel Projectiles Pack 2
  • Super Pixel Props: Mansion Pack 1

For patrons who use Unity and want to get the Unity version of an asset pack that you already have access to on itch.io, send me a Patreon message. Let me know which Unity packs you’re interested in, and I can send you a link to download via Dropbox.

Next Pixel Art Pack

Coming up next after the sci-fi UI pack is…. You guessed it! A fantasy-themed UI! Here’s a look at some of the progress so far.

For this UI pack, I’m going for a sort of Viking-esque theme. I still have to test this out to see if it looks alright in action- The window title area is a lot more centered than the previous theme and the window area is a little narrower as a consequence. I’m thinking it’ll look nice with centered title text. As for the palette, I definitely wanted to make a wood-colored one this time. After all, that’s what Vikings typically used to build things! I’ll have to tinker a bit with my export process to get that palette in there, but I’ll make it happen. I might also enlarge the gems or fill in the title area with the secondary color, because I want a two-tone color theme here and there’s currently a lot of brown. Anyway- Still very much a work in progress!

Other Cool Stuff

I’m doing more pixel art for Veridian Expanse! Here’s a look at some new UI I drew for the game recently. Gotta love that sci-fi look!

That’s all for today! I’ll see you next week with a full look at the new UI pack and a look at the second pack for December: sci-fi props.
