Im starting a new game using clay animation
do the think it's a good Idea to use this approach to art in games?

I _love_ the idea of clay animation as the art. It rocks my socks off.

Can't wait to see where this goes.

Of course it's been done before, but not so often that I'm tired of it. And I like your colors. Good luck; post an update once in a while.

Looks nice Smile Have you tried varying the location of the light source to see how it affects the perceived depth (ie moving the light slightly upward so there is a bit more shadow on the lower part of the bird)?

I used a Macro Flash It does not leave a shadow.
I could maybe play after in PS to get more depth?
