I like the models. If you don't mind my saying they should be used in place of the 2d stuff at all times.

Thanks Mike, the models are used to make the sprite sheets for the 2d stuff but unfortunately as we don't have a 3D game engine thats about the best we can do. For a future project we will perhaps look at something like Unity ect, as the prospect of writing a full 3d engine with a single programmer just isn't viable for a game of any real scope.

Ah, I meant the pre-rendering (which is what I'm doing too) stuff should take the place of the stuff that's not pre-rendered.

Going to have to admit, I don't really follow hehe.

All the Main Game Map Sprites and Combat Animation Sprites are pre-rendered, the only none pre-rendered art for the characters is in the UI.

The backgrounds for both gameplay screens (map and combat) are all 2d hand drawn (or well thats a lie some are 3d models rendered out) but the majority are 2d. Is this what you mean by making it all 3d models?

I'm not really sure what benefit it would have to be honest, by the time the 2d artist has textured them they look like they have been drawn in 2d anyway. The only perk of us using a 3d model is so that we can swing it around and render it from lots of angles for items we reuse several times.

Or I could be completely missing what your trying to tell me :-)
