Pixel Art / Re: [Feedback][CC] Retro 90s RPG Mockup

Yeah I use aseprite, it's a great tool, but its tileset features are like the next big thing on the way iirc, so for now it's either I export to Unity and tile it there or I just keep it in my layers in aseprite.

I've tried tampering with the grass, I feel I can't notice tiling as much, and attempted to bring 1 more colour into the planks to soften the corners like you did whilst focusing on texture not depth. Someone in discord recommended the UI be brightened a tiny bit so that's had a +5 to its light level in Aseprite.

Edit: I added a shading layer too to outer walls and the chest indoors, forgot to turn that off but that's more just an experiment.

For reference, this entire mockup was basically a premise of "could an Ultima-VI-esque game be modernized to look more convenient and usable", so it's trying to build on this look:

(I am more of a pastel-colour fan though so I don't go for that 1990s high-contrast)

What program did you use to animate the movement?

I worked the grass tiles here to make it a bit more even and less clumpy.

The process is:

 - Zoom out and look for details that line up to make obvious vertical and horizontal lines.
 - Zoom in and break the lines up. Move things around or delete or add blades of grass
 - Repeat.

I use Pyxel Edit, which has a great tool for tiling. You can immediately see the effect of your edits on a tiled image. Aseprite has a similar but less advanced feature and apparently more tiling tools on the way.

I'd probably go more in this kind of direction for the floorboards.

As suggested by Eishiya, this is an attempt to create some texture.

Having a lighter floor colour definitely helps with the readability of the image. I think we can do better than embossed-effect floorboards though, they still look a bit too fake-3D to me. Reminds me of Minesweeper...

The grass tiles look obviously tiled to me. With things like grass, I try to work the tile edges so they flow into each other. In these tiles I can kinda see a clump of stuff inside each tile.

Give me a mo and I'll see if it can show you what I mean.

Hey, sorry for a long delay. I'd moved onto other pixelart after touching this up a while back but forgot to post the update.

Tried adjusting the table, redrew the west-face character template to be perspective-appropriate (Was struggling with the cape without either losing 100% of his detail and thus making him harder to identify, or having it be a slightly skewed shape as a compromise) and then did some desaturating and new colours across walls and floors, with floors losing a colour or two to clean up the depth issue on planks a bit.

Pixel Art / [WIP][CC] help with run animation

Hi everyone, so far I have only drawn static things or some idle animations, I have tried to make a running animation (this is a second attempt, the first version I did not like :(), what things you recomend me modify?

this is the character

and here his running animation

It has become difficult to draw hands :-[, and there are still some details to be added such as the cape or poncho.

In magickavoxel you could enhance the materials to achieve metallic surfaces. I bet they would also look cool rendered with marching cubes. Maybe they could work in sprite-stack technique, but it would best to increase contrast for readability.

I created voxel models for the cyborgs from 1991's Steel Empire / Cyber Empires videogame. I imagine they would be used in an isometric action game like Mech Assault or Desert Strike.

Mercury - Cyclops - Dragon

Mars - Crossbolt - Achilles

Hercules - Behemoth - Titan
