More 1bit visual effects experiments. Messing specifically with healing status effects this time. I did the three on the right first, trying different dissolves. The one on the left takes my favourite dissolve and uses a quick stretch and squash intro to make it appear first.
The bottom image is a test with a sprite I had lying around. I added a single pixel drop shadow to the bottom of the effect and really like how it adds a bit of depth and volume without messing with the simple flatness of the effect.
