Alright, here's what I hope to be the finalized concept art of Planet 1 in Thwomp Swamp Galaxy:
http://s837.crapobucket.com/user/GrapeEscape/media/Scan0002_zps79ad3c4f.jpg.html
Basically, I just added in a few star bits, a mandibug, and a chance cube room.

Planet 2 is complete! Well, the draft, at least.

This is just a quick update to announce that I'm stopping any and all development on this galaxy. So far it's just been a mish-mosh of geometric figures for platforms, random enemy placement, and a very linear build. I've realized that I'm pretty bad at level design and conveying what I imagine the galaxy to be through words. If anyone wants to pick up this galaxy idea and put their own twist on it, by all means go ahead. But if not, I might as well scrap this concept as a whole.

Thanks for that. Thoughts? I don't personally think that I'm going to continue it.

Thanks for the encouraging words! After some consideration, it looks like I'm continuing work on this galaxy after all.

I have a problem with it. its kinda short for planet 1. it's just a few platforms with some enemies, maybe add some more uh... idk. I just feel like it needs more to it. But the idea is okay! :)

The more designs, the better :P

well tbh... I don't like it that much. The design just seems very generic. And we already have toxic terror, so meh... The reason why I wanted you to attempt this design was to see if you had what it takes to be a designer for one of the real galaxies. Your drawing skills are not bad, but you really need to work on making your designs more creative.

Coming from the guy who obsessed over tunnels and tried to put theme in every design he made.


Also hm, could you try an isometric view?

I'm sorry, but drawing things from a 3D perspective is very difficult for me. And I kind of had to cut the first planet short because I ran out of room on my paper. I'll have to try to draw a bit smaller and make some revisions.

I have got to say, this is a good attempt, actually. However, it seems like Toxic Terror and Foggy Bog to me since this is a swamp galaxy. Because of that the design itself is kacking some creativity.

The almost completed drawing for planet 2 is now up! Give it a look!

Umm, here's a 3D Representation of Planet 1 (I think?)

That looks about right. Though, I envisioned the wooden bridges resembling the one seen at the start of Hightail Falls Galaxy, but without the railing. Another thing is that the water isn't the type of purple goop you see in most swamp galaxies. Rather, it's clean, pristine river water (not transparent). I should also add that the little zig-zags in my drawing represent a fence. Guess I should get working on making a key for my drawings... Either way, thanks for this!

Uh sorry, that's really boring. There's just nothing happening there, even with the couple of thwomps and enemies in the drawing.

I realize how small and short planet 1 is. I just haven't quite figured out what to add to it...

Guys, give GrapeEscape a chance. Once his drawings are completed, we'll add more stuff in anyway. Also, this is not a Toxic Galaxy. It's actually a Water Galaxy with Thwomps and ruins and stuff. I said that because maybe he wasn't clear on the meaning "swamp" in terms of this galaxy. On the other hand, keep up the great work GrapeEscape, can't wait to see more. :3

Might I suggest having many paths encompassing a round planet?

Notice how Cosmological put paths on a cube for Stormshine Galaxy. Planet 1 of Thwomp Swamp Galaxy would be better if it was a large spherical planet with many objectives. Just a few paths with Thwomps might be too meager for Planet 1. So I would recommend having some wide open areas to make the first planet be sort of a starting "home".

A cubic planet? That might work. The river could flow around the sides of the cube before finally flowing into planet 2. But, I would like to keep what I have drawn so far for planet 1. Perhaps I could just twist it around so that some paths are on different sides of a cube...any suggestions?

Hmm, at first I thought this was a really stupid idea that won't get anywhere.
But maybe if this doesn't get to be a galaxy, we could work some parts into another one...hmmm...
Well, anyway, you've gotta do better than a few random 2D sketches of simple platforms if you wanna make this a full design.
Keep going. :)
