A redesign of the AGS site is now ready to be implemented! Please help us with art and content.

Author Topic: Sprite Jam: Pirates! Ahoy There (WINNER ANNOUNCED)  (Read 982 times)

In honour of my favourite adventure game, it’s time to draw a pirate character!



Guidelines:
1. An original pirate character
2. Who smashes pirate stereotypes in some way (not just your typical pirate...)
    I.e. are they a bit clumsy(like guybrush), do they have a cat instead of a parrot, or perhaps a bionic peg leg...
3. By 10 June 2021.

Judging Criteria:
1. Character design - How interesting is the character? Do they show their personality?
2. Creativity - How unique are they? What stereotypes do they smash?
3. Artistic appeal - What’s their overall look/feel from an artistic side (colour, line, texture)?

@Iamarobot: if you use the button "Insert Zoomable Image" instead of "Insert Image", we'll be able to zoom easily on your small picture. Nice parrot!

These are looking great! Love how everyone’s got a very different take so far.

@stylez75 - how creepy! 😂 like something from a horror movie.
@Iamarobot - love the take of pirate riding the parrot. Great imagination!
And @creamy - the clown pirate 😄 almost think ppl would be more scared of running into him than a real pirate...

With another 10 days to go, look forward to a few more entries!

@creamy thanks for the tip, I had a bit of bother even getting the image to show up hahaha. What image hosting site do u guys usually use?

My picture is a bit rushed i never really made pixel art before just fancied something to do. Was thinking I might fix it up a bit and make it nicer before the competition  ends so if I do I'll  try and upload the improved one to be zoomable.

Nice pirates pals

*didn't mean to say it was rushed, just pixelling takes waaaay longer to do than I had imagined and I ran out of steam by the time I was doin the parrots wing feathers and a background haha. I think the parrots body and pirate look fine but I wanted to make the rest of the parrot less messy lookin and jazz up background a bit

Now, this is a SPRITE jam, and a BG isn't normally part of the sprite.  ;)
There are those who believe that life here began out there...

As pirates love life at sea, being buried alive in the desert was a particularly devious punishment for this pirate. But after his evil spirit was freed, he made the most of it and created a vessel that rose and fell with the dunes as if they were crashing waves, plundering caravan and ancient tomb alike for their treasures. So don't think it a mere tall tale if distant travelers tell you stories of ... the Pirate of the Sands.

Character design - Creamy
I like his sour expression. Even if he's a clown pirate, it's obvious he's not happy!

Creativity - Stylez75
A lot of really creepy combinations make this undead pirate scary and unsettling.

Artistic appeal - Iamarobot
There's a lot of great detail on the parrot, and even the tiny pirate shows a lot of character.

Adding in my votes and closing this comp off. Tough to choose!

Character design: creamy
Would hate to run into this guy… he’s so confused about his identity (am I a clown or a pirate?) he’s sure to not be all there. Very interesting character and concept!
Creativity: iamarobot
Love the reverse pirate bird idea. Very cool and creative! I actually want to see him in a game sometime.
Artistic appeal: klatuu
I like your use of shades ‘ different colours to add depth to his bandages. And even having the loose wraps is good attention to detail.


So with 5 votes, that means this round goes to iamarobot!
