Finished Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery the other day, here's my outfit translation take on the Scythian's simple pixelart look: [link]

Game overall was refreshing but I was a little surprised at how "hip" it was...I was expecting a more romantic atmosphere to match the gorgeous graphics I suppose? Def a game that you'd need to play on a long bus ride to enjoy to it's fullest too, quite slow-paced if you have anything near a short attention span.

Game has an amazing OST, you can listen free here: [link]

aha, i knew it. i saw a trailer for the game yesterday and remembered this picture. kinda cool how easily the design translates into a more detailed art style.

I couldn't imagine how to interpret the design of the Scythian into something beyond it's original pixel design (which is a fantastic display of minimalism)... but here it is... perfectly realized. Very well done!

I love how she's wearing platform shoes/clogs & has a bauble on her hat yet still looks like a fucking badass.

Your designs are the coolest!

So stoic. Very nice clothing, but I doubt she could fight in those shoes.

Wow, love it! What made to think her shoes would be like that, i wonder?
emlan's avatar
Her long legs paired with the kinda stiff walk wanted me to add some height pretty much hehe

I have this game too! I haven't finished it yet though because I've been preoccupied but I love the artwork in it so much. haha nice to see you're still drawing lots. You've improved a lot, too.

My favorite parts are the shoes and the kimono belt type thing you drew. :)

I love this design. She's like... a military marching band member with Egyptian/Japanese influences.

I'm gonna buy this game now, this artwork has me really intrigued :> Wonderful work!

I love it when people interpret sprites, and I love Sword&Sworcery. But seeing you do it, I'm blown away. Thanks for making this. <3

Now this, THIS is superb! I LOVE this old Asian motif (Tibetan? Chinese? I danno). Platform shoes are a touch I wouldn't have expected.

Probably already know this, but they also have remixes of some of the tracks for the Japanese release, if you care for a listen: [link]
emlan's avatar
Ooh somehow I missed them remixes! Not bad at all...Also thanks, I didn't have any proper outfit types in mind to reference from but I was def trying to channel some asian flavors hehe

Came in expecting something horse-cartoon-related, but was pleasantly surprised. Great job, very nicely done.
