Unearthed Update: July 22nd (A Couple Of Bosses)

Last week I made a point to polish up two very important sprites for Unearthed. They are both very important bosses for the Stompin’ Grounds area, and were a bit complicated from a technical perspective. I’m quite happy to have them complete (except for perhaps a bit of colouring), and even happier to show them all off to you.

You may remember the Spore Machine from last week! I polished it up a bit since you last saw it, and changed the colour scheme to make it a bit more vibrant. It doesn’t match the in-battle sprite completely,but I think this is about as close as I can get it.


Next up we have the Ancient Colossus, an optional boss from near the very end of the game. He was a little tricky to put together since he is composed of three parts, none of which had counterparts in EarthBound. I used a few sprites from a GBA game as a starting point, and spent a good amount of time trying to match EB’s wonky perspective. I think it turned out rather well!


I’ll be working on smaller scale sprites for the next little while, so expect more frequent updates. As usual, you can catch the most up-to-date work-in-progress on my Twitter.
