The Pixel Artwork of Crystal Catacombs


Enemy Design and Animation:

For the past few years I've been creating and animating over 60+ different enemies and bosses for my upcoming Indie Game, Crystal Catacombs. I've focused on making sure that each enemy is uniquely crafted, using strict attention towards detail and being animated accordingly. Depending on how complex the enemy is, it may require anywhere from one to ten different 'sets' of animations.

All art and animation is created in Photoshop, converted/exported into sprite sheets and then implemented into Unity by the programming team.

Here are a few choice selections:


Left: Destroyer_Pursue - Right: Frost Worm_Rise 
Left: Archanid_Walk - Right: Bogleech_Attack 
Left: Blood Spirit_Pursue - Right: Blood Spirit_Rise 
Left: Creeper_Walk - Right: MET_Pursue 
Left: Creature_Attack1 - Right: Creature_Attack2 
Left: Slime Jr._Drop - Middle: Slime Jr._Rise - Right: Slime Jr._Walk
