Platformer

It’s been a while since I’ve posted about this, but I have made some progress on it

As I mentioned, the art style is mainly black and white with the central character and objects of significance being in some kind of color. I wanted to keep away from detail and keep the art style simplistic so the assets are mostly one or two colors.

2D Platformer Mood Boards

My idea is to have a silhouette-based low detail art style – Where most of the background and visual assets would be black and white, but characters and anything you can interact with would be in bold colour.

Here’s the Mood Board

I took a lot of inspiration from Monaco (for bright colours), and Limbo (for layering regarding background and foreground assets). I really like the way They Bleed Pixels has outlined platforms, and the colours from Ori and the Blind Forest and Badland, and the simplicity from Electronic Super Joy.
