Egyptian Desert by Cyangmou Egyptian Desert by Cyangmou
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

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

Thanks,
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 pixelation.org/ - might be one of the best places in the web for pixelart critique.

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

no, never played that one - but I heard of it bc. one of my clients was a really big fan of that game.
It's on my list of stuff I should look into, but haven't checked it out yet =)

would have wished the same. Another occassion where hundreds of hours of work lead to nothing. I am getting used to this I guess.

I am trying to use an engine like construct 2 and build a couple of my own on my own. No-one can cancel the project in me but me then. Long progress and so much to learn.
I seriously hope you get the recognition and success a artist of your caliber deserves! I will be joining twitch to see your work!

Ya it's always disheartening if projects don't make it. It's even more disheartening if tons of work already went in. And in this case All the graphical content was developed - this means at least some stuff for my DA if I find the time to build the stuff together on my own.
It's also one of my main reasons why I started with Tower 57.
I am basically aiming to release at least something playable - but you never know why a project won't make it until it's released - there a hundreds of reasons why they get stuck in development.
But since Tower is also my own project it's different than freelancing on a project.

it was intented for a megamanesque action sidescroller.

I was hoping it wasn't a sidescroller, because I love these, lol

:iconcyangmou:
Cyangmou Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2016  Professional Digital Artist
well sidescroller should be kinda clear, given the look of the tiled front environment.
But there are some really nice sidescrollers in development, I am following myself a few of them.

It's a shame that the game got scrapped...a megaman-esque game with graphics like that would've been wonderful.
