Got bored and spent way too much time playing around.

Had some downtime and got a bit nostalgic about illutia/aspereta haha.
Clearly i'm not an artist. Most of this was pulled from free resources and tweaked a bit to fit mediocrely.

Cool, got a higher resolution screenshot of that?

Did you edit the GUI skins in a graphics editor? We have been thinking of fixing the GUI skins to look a bit nicer, but we're also not artists and haven't had time yet. smile

Any better? Messed around and added some transparency, darkened item slots and brightened it a bit.
I just used paint.net, I was messing around in MS Paint, curious as to what kind of time it'd take to create a spritesheet for an item or npc and found that paint.net just has better toolsets and plugins for the job. Of course! Much higher priorities right now smile

Where do you guys get your artwork now?

Ah those dark slots actually look better than the light ones. Yea, paint.net is way better than MS paint. tongue

Right now the majority of our artwork is placeholder, so we find it on free game art websites, but we are still looking for an artist to continue working on our beta game content.

I heard it might be possible to get a hold of the tool you guys use to build maps! Any chance you'd mind me playing around with that? yikes

Sure it's a free program. Here's the website: http://www.mapeditor.org/

It takes a little getting used to, but after that it's pretty intuitive.
