Pixel Art / [WIP][CC] Ancient Temple/Tomb 2D sidescroller tiles
« on: October 19, 2021, 10:25:55 pm »
Hi all,

I've been a lurker on this site for many many years now looking at all the amazing work done, but I finally bought aseprite last night, and so this is my first serious attempt at making some pixel art. any tips/cc very welcome

I didn't really think about any theme while making this, I was just following this tutorial and wanted to make something more to my taste. I had cave story's angular/repetitive rock tiles in mind when i made the initial centre rock tile, but I didn't look at any screenshots until after and I realise now that mine repeats on a much smaller scale than cave story. The square block tiles I made after looking at the cave story screens as i thought they were a nice way to add variety in, but they're not that well integrated yet i think.

i'm using Arne's 32 colour pallette, and the orange in the rocks is there just because thats the colour I started sketching out with and kinda liked the result last night. I'm not so happy with it now I look at it again so my first edit tonight has been getting rid of it

i started on some ideas for background tiles for a mock-up... struggling a little to get a nice contrast/ background with the remaining colours in the pallette. I do really like the rich purply blue though. Don't know if I actually want this wierd aqueduct thing as the background, that idea was shamelessly taken from looking at the castlevania critique thread on here.

here's my edit so far today - trying to get rid of the orange (only worked on cleaning up the central rock tile in this image):

it seems pretty quiet on pixelation these days, but i'll keep updating as I go along.
