So I played the newest Castlevania, Lords of Shadow. While it is not a perfect game by any means. I really enjoyed it. So much so that when I finished it I wanted to make my own Belmont character.
Now I'm also very much obsessed with iphone gaming. I love the ps-one retro look.
So take one and add the other, and I decided to make a iphone Castlevania character.
I originally was only going to make just the character, which quickly spiraled into the character plus a base, which became the character, plus a base, plus Medusa heads (woefully absent from the new game).
I had a lot of fun on this and it really allowed me to learn a lot. I practiced my painting skills which have woefully atrophied in the past year. I keep the main character; Conrad Belmont at about 1000 polygons, and no texture is larger than 256x256.
