Greetings Bloodites!

Today work is well underway on the "Blood Hi-Res Project", in which I will be recreating/enhancing ALL the in game artwork of blood to 4x the original size, I will begin by doing all the environmental textures first (roofs, walls, ceilings etc), After the textures are all done, I will begin work on the sprites (enemies, weapons, pickups etc)

My aim to to capture the faithfulness to the awesome originals, but add some gritty realism and detail into it!

This is A LOT of work on my part, but I'm doing it because this amazing game deserves it!,

Here's a sneak peak at a few select things.
(still lacking final polishing, also note these preview pics don't do it the justice it deserves, you need to see them in game and up close, that's where the magic shines :D)

I appreciate the honesty, keep in mind these are only VERY early drafts, the finals will be of much higher quality and faithfulness to the original, Like I stated earlier, I don't want to sink countless hours/days into single textures until I can be certain that XLEngine will even allow me to implement them. At which point I'll be getting serious...dead serious.

What do you think of these now?
I'm hoping the engine will support alpha maps, in which case I can actually make the "window" on the door act like a window :p

I can't tell just by looking; do the plant textures tile?

Indeed they do, albeit a few sections here and there that look a little off, but I'll get around to sorting them ^_^

*Just altered them, they are perfectly tile-able now :), better edit the floor and wall while from the first post while I'm at it, silly me forgot they'd need to tile correctly >_<

**Righto, that's that done, I'll have to keep that in mind from now on, :P
