[Graphics] [NES] Castlevania 3 Art Help Needed
« on: December 13, 2020, 11:41:13 am »
Hello rom hacking world,
This is a CV3 WIP hack im working on called Aperture of Corruption, its a collaborative project striving to totally convert the original CV3 into something completely new.



Right now we are looking for some help with the games environments and stages. In short, we need all the help we can get 8)

Castlevania 3 runs on the NES using MMC5, which means we have quite a bit of room to build beautiful environments, threatening bosses, and dynamic animations.

We are looking for pixel artists to work together with the AoC team to create sprites, and backgrounds in a 16x16 grid pattern using a maximum of 9 colors to create screen demos, which will be implemented in engine to create the final game.

If you would be interested in helping us, or would like to ask any questions
feel free to PM me or post about it below:

Apology's for the late reply. We have gotten some help with enemies so far, but still need help with character and background art. The link to the projects page has a lot more examples if your looking for a specific style. Below are some examples of enemies and environments.

On backgrounds, we are aiming for a similar style to Thaddeus's.


Even if you don't think you could match the styles provided, we would still love to chat with you.

Congrats on the progress. It's looking fantastic. When you get a demo rolling or need someone to test it out, Lemmie know. I'll get some eyes on it
