This is what it looks like when I start blocking out a boss battle. Who remembers that fish that chases you from Mario Bros 3? I hated that damn thing.
Anyway, i start with quick sketches and squares aa placeholder art and try to get the general battle functions working to see if its fun. I'm at a point where I'm not sure if it's fun yet, so I'll be tweaking and adding a lot of things to this battle.
