Oh, and why does anime have to be realistic? It's frickin' art, not photography. You don't need to conform to proportional art.
I love this statement. Sorry just had to say that. There's very little people who think that way, that I know atleast.
Firstly, I have to say I agree completely. There are so many different styles of anime (and art in general) that one shouldn't feel that they must conform to one style or another. Its an expression of self after all.
Secondly, I must admit that I really like all the art styles you showcased and cannot choose between them. Sorry that doesn't help much. Also, the parallax/panorama mapping looks considerably better, so perhaps if you made the wall hieghts smaller and tried changing the colour pallette of the sprites you might be able to get it to work. It's an option at least.
Lastly, its very nice to see a project witha unique style that actually looks like it holds promise for completion. I'm rooting for you.
To avoid confusion... I'm a guy! xD Current demo officially rated 8.5/10 by RRR's Reviewer; nighthawk282
@EvenAngels: You're actually being helpful xD It just means I have succeeded in visual stuffers. Hmm change the palette? I understand the wall heights but I'm using pretty much the same palette for both sprite and map lol Thank you! I'm glad you think so!
quick "doodles" (i'll probably use it for something) of Cookie and Miky(aka the Warrior and the Witch)
Also sorry for the inactiveness lately but I've been making some decisions and I think I'll revamp the whole game and make it an Action RPG wholly pixelled (which will kill me but it's okay at least I will make some improvements to my sorry excuse of pixelling xD)

IDK if you should fill them in later. They'd work well as promotional art, titlescreen, etc. as is. They're really pretty That aside, I can't imagine what Cookie would look like lineless O.o Or do you mean the sprites? Oh, if it's mostly pixelled, will you still be doing your hand drawn maps?
Look, this is a totally awesome project by Dragoncookie that you should totally visit ROFL
Thanks! I'll make a filled in and a non filled in ver probably. Actually I was talking about the game graphs xD Well I was thinking about making tilesets instead of hand drawing since that way I can spare a lot of work. Anti-aliased tilesets, that is.

Update: My computer is a bish and it doesn't have enough room for me to install whatever. So I'm going to erase some old files and stuff which might take a while since I have all my stuff in like 2538082 folders or something.
