Hi Ninjas,

Back again for another art development log. I have interesting news.. the focus of the art development has been shifted from Jutsus to the second village, the Hidden Village of Sand! I already teased you all a few days back with the new forum banner, but here's a proper development log of the art working in-game.

Even more good news, my conscription in the military will be ending in a little over 4 months, that will mean a lot more time to work on Nin Online and more time to dedicate to the community, like I did in the past.

Animated grass
Before going into the Sand village, I decided to make the greenery in the game a little more lively. Look closely!


Sand Flak Jacket & Headband
These are the basic gear seen worn by most ninjas in the sand village. I'll be adding more customized looks for these in the near future. For example, a variation of the headband which has the cloth covering one eye. The flak jacket looks a little bit different on the female. It's more light weight and has chest space.

The Southern Gates of the Sand Village
Watch as my Sand Ninja enters the "gates" of Sand.


World Map
I'm looking to hear your opinions on the current design for the world map I'm working on. If it's not pleasing for you guys, I'll consider outsourcing drawing a more detailed map to an illustrator.


I hope you guys like this. Feel free to give your feedback and harsh criticism.
Also, once again, if there are any web developers interested in coding our new homepage, please PM me!



Looks great!
