Finally I found some time to upload something again, but tomorrow I will release a news post here on Deviantart too. 
I have been working on multiple different things I want to share with you =D

Background work I did in December 2013/January 2014 for a game-project which got canned and never will see the light of day.

other bgs of the project:
Hall of Anubis by Cyangmou
Hellscape by Cyangmou

Very nice! May I ask how you made the parallel effect?

I use asesprite but I do not know how to make a "pan" effect where I can hover around a scene since it shows everything all the time.

And again, great gallery this!

You can do it either by hand (moving every layer the amount of pixels you want - takes very long)

Or you put layers in a game engine and make a gif from the output (requires to know how to use an engine)

Yes sure I can use an engine. is that how you do it? ;D

But If I use a program, with layers, trouble for me seems to be that if I create a gif, it will show the entire canvas instead of a limited part that I then change the viewpoint on. Guess I have to learn an engine : P

This looks really nice. It'd be nice and probably possible to replicate in Terraria.

Keep art up, do a lot of art and think about what you are doing with each piece.
THis alone helps a lot with getting better, but it's also always nice to get good critique on stuff.
If you want to improve, check out - might be one of the best places in the web for pixelart critique.

I am mesmerized! This reminds me a lot like Metal Slug 2: The first level!

This is incredible. I saw the thumbnail on the right and clicked, and the final construct was even more elaborate than I thought.

Hey there, this is the creator of the scrapped game. If you want to play the last demo, you can find it here:…

Absolutely beautiful work here. It looks like it popped right out of a Metal Slug game.
