    Hi everyone,

    I’ve begun creating 2D game art that you are welcome to freely use in your projects. Some is pixel art, some is derived from 3D objects that I created, and others are backgrounds that might be useful in visual novels and interactive fiction. You’ll find them on my new “ART” pages on my website:

    http://soundimage.org

    The art pages are located at the bottom of the menu list on the right side of the screen.

    At this point I’m experimenting with different styles and methods so hopefully I will be able to offer a good variety of things. Please feel free to modify / edit as needed. If you happen to find any of these images helpful and decide to use them, please attribute me in the “game art” section of your credits area.

    Enjoy!

    I ventured into new territory this week and experimented with creating animated game art. Made a couple of lanterns that might work in RPGs or other things. One is an old style hand-held one…the other might work for a street or attached to a tavern or inn. Both shimmer with an amber glow. You’ll find them here:

    I also created a treasure chest (with a couple of variations) that might come in handy. They are here:

    Feel free to edit as needed.



    Enjoy!

    I opened a new page this week that has templates for maps. They might be handy for treasure maps, game world maps, etc. Just add graphics and text.



    You’ll find them here:

    Feel free to edit as needed.



    Enjoy!

    They live toward the bottom of the page, so make sure to scroll down.



    As always, feel free to edit and modify as needed.

    An interesting selection of stuff you have there. First time viewer.

    The backgrounds feel "too real" for me. The planets and gems/coins I love.
    I'm trying to make art for a game as well. Would love to see more of your arts.

    Awesome contributions!

    Thanks for checking out my work...and for the feedback...I appreciate it! At this point, I'm really just experimenting with different styles and things...I kind of feel like a mad scientist...or maybe a mad artist...lol. Hopefully I can come up with some new looks. Make sure to check out my music and sounds if you haven't already. :)

    Hey guys,



    More experiments with various game art styles. I’ve got some pixel art-style map templates here:



    ART- MAP TEMPLATES

    ART - Map Templates | Soundimage.org



    You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page.



    It was suggested to me that they might also be useful as backgrounds. Feel free to edit and modify as needed.



    Btw, if anyone happens to have kids (or know someone who does) I’ve created a learning series that teaches them environmental stewardship in a fun way through stories and characters. It was my first try at making films with a DSLR…(they can be very challenging to work with in the field)…but I think the films came out pretty well. The organization I made them for was very happy with them and uses the films all the time…hopefully others can benefit from them as well. Please feel free to share with teachers, family, friends or anyone you know who might find them useful.
