Arias Pixel Expressions by Reyniki Arias Pixel Expressions by Reyniki
After watching Jacksepticeye's playthrough of Heartbound's demo, I got a wave of inspiration to make a game for my own characters.
I have so many ideas and a little story in mind and I'm super excited to try it out but I just know that I'm not ready to take on such a big project yet.
Maybe after school's all done.
------

In the excitement though, I created some expressions for Arias in the style I think I'll be using for the game.
I LOVE pixel RPGs like Heartbound and Undertale so I plan to make something like that.
I also love Hyperlight Drifter's combat system so I think I'll mix some of that in too.

Xenox will be in there too, he'll be the main character for reasons I won't spoil. I only did Arias first because he's my favourite boi.

------

Now I just need to figure out how to do the full body sprites. I have some tests I did but I can't animate them very well ;;
If I ever further this idea of a game in the future, I think I have to have some kind of team and make a demo before considering kickstarting it. Just so I can make sure the team can work well and my passion for this game isn't just for a few months. I'll need a programmer, an assistant artist/animator and a sound designer. As awesome as it would be for me to do it all myself, it'll take years for me to finish the game alone ;;
I'll figure out a team/logo some time in the future!

It's so nerve racking to put my ideas out there but it would be more painful if I don't do anything XD
ONE DAY

I love all of the expressions! There is so much variation, and they all look so natural. Also, I love this pixel style! I'm excited to hear more about that game too *v*

Thank you so much! QuQ I can't wait to share more about the game too! <3
I'm gonna have to practice making some smaller games first X'D This one with my OCs is way too big for my first game.

Aaah that means a lot! ;v; I didn't think he would be easy to recognize because of how simple he is but I'm so glad you think so! <3

MY BOI, I must admit I love Arias as well, he is beautiful 
These expressions are amazing and it would be so awesome if you made a game! I'd definitely want to play it ^^

Eee thank you so much! I think I'm a long way from making this big game. I watched a few videos on where to start in game developing and they recommended to start small first. So I'm probably going to start off making some one level platforming game with shapes to get into the swing of it XD

Ah, I am so sorry for the late reply >< 
But it honestly sounds awesome! I think your characters would be great in a video game and if you feel comfortable with the challenge, then you could definitely go for it! 
I'd definitely want to play a video game with your characters!
