The world enveloped in darkness and someone is enjoying it...

Shock is inevitable when you see something surprising...

Look behind you! It's a tentacle!

Santa knows you've been naughty this year!

And so, it draws near.........

I don't see anything scary about the last pictures at all, y'all just bunch of wusses Razz

Nice work though, also I am not sure what you are trying to do with them.
If you are just showing some art, it should belong in the Art forum.
If its story, then it should be in the Story forum, but I am sure you knew that already.

Oh ye, one more tip, don't overuse the gradient tool, it really doesn't look good.

The image sizes happen to be 320x200. If you played my Eight Granasties game, you would be aware that there are cutscenes in my game... so it is actually an announcement about something, but I didn't say what it was.

Also it's not the gradient tool, it's the burn and dodge tool on highlights.

It's alright. The gradient tool is basically from dark to light in really shapey shapes (like rectangular or diamond or circular), so you can tell it's gradient because it's really retarded looking. Also, let me know what you think of the game.

Isn't embalmed kind of a weird word? I mean, unless you're saying the world has had it's fluids removed for preservation, and replaced with good ol' inert darkness, I think enveloped might be a better choice, or even enshrouded, to keep the funerary theme.

*gives Giz a high 5*

Frikin sweet moves!

I wish OHR had better color capacity so those shades could actually be seen without it looking like a grey plip died on the screen.

So do I BB. Maybe that'll happen someday though.

On topic portion of post: I haven't played your game yet, Onlyoneinall, but I have downloaded it and I will play it when I get some spare time.

While none of these pics are really technically exceptional, I definitely like them. The second is quite amusing and the fourth very weird and creepy. Good job.
