Chaos Engine pixel-3d fanart by AnttiKoponen Chaos Engine pixel-3d fanart by AnttiKoponen
I wanted to do an environment study. I've always loved aesthetics of Chaos Engine(Amiga version ftw) and Dan Malone's efficient use of such limited color palette, so I decided to convert part of that world into modular 3d assets. Sprites are original but slightly modified to fit 3d.

Made with Blender and PyxelEdit. Total complexity of 1322 triangles with 128x128px texture. Using transparency for some elements. Material is set to emissive for that shadeless look. 

Interactable version available here with texture and wireframes: keppu.artstation.com/projects/…

Sir...it looks like an obvious trap set by the local natives.  Should we beam down?

Yes, Ensign.  Better bring extra red-shirts to get killed.  Mr. Spock, Dr. McCoy, you're with me!

Those were the days!

I went and converted this GIF into APNG. Cool thing was that the file size was reduced 23%. However here in DA the APNG can't have an animated preview image, which is quite a shame. Otherwise I couldn't notice much difference in utilizing both file types.

Here is the APNG version:

Do you have some specific use in mind for this?

Thanks, yeah it will always have a smaller size than GIF when converting.
hopefully they will add support to it.

There's a huge difference between GIF and APNG, APNG has no colour limits and it has full transparency, you can fix the edges of your image if you make it into PNG sequence and then make them into APNG
and as you noticed it has better compression than GIF :D

Took me a while to realize that Dan Malone is the artist behind Chaos Engine. Now that I know, I'll sure go thank him for the inspiration.

Thanks for bringing this up! :)

This is amazing! The little touches of detail, like the shine on the coins and the bubbling mud, look great! :nod:

I was an Amiga kid, too! The Chaos Engine was an overlooked classic, particularly the graphical style... those were some days.

Amiga was way head of everything else back in the olden days. So many classics. :D

Games like Chaos Engine still give important lessons to us artists. Especially now that pixel art is popular again. I guess good art never goes "old".

You're right; truly worthy art doesn't age. We're still admiring the works of the Old Masters, even though some were painted hundreds of years ago! :nod:

Another awesome lowpoly work!
One question:
How you do that in the preview it shows the animation itself?
Thank you!

The preview image here in DA can be animated GIF. It's just restricted to 150x150px dimension at maximum I believe.
