Platform Tile Set

on: October 04, 2010, 10:12:12 pm
I made tiles for a platformer game.
Was looking for critique or comments.
Any help would be really appreciated.
Thanks

Really the only thing that bothers me is just the explicit noise that makes up the dirt below the green. Try adding more form by using shades of value to make it look more rounded, and less like color noise.

I would advise against doubling the size of the tiles for any reason, especially if you intend on keeping some objects at their regular size like the skull.
It might seem like a small thing but it instantly destroys the universe your pixels live in to me when you break a rule so fundamental to pixels.

Other than that, there isn't much to comment on, sorry if I'm coming off harsh- it's not intended.
There isn't much deliberate detail, the dirt/cliff texture is just 3 tone noise. I think you need to focus more on the textures and detail for these objects, I feel like you're just representing the very basics of video game graphics, which on a level is kind of interesting, but I don't think that's what you're going for.


Again, apologies if I'm being too blunt.

Okay that looks alot better. You didnt add form, which is okay since it looks like the style of art your going for is SM2-ish.

heres the walking sprite (the standing one is the first frame)
THE IMAGE SPEED OF THE WALK WILL BE CONSIDERABLY SLOWED DOWN



jumping



attacking
i feel that the sword in the second frame is awkward



i also don't have an animation program. suggestions?

I did my take on them. My character was going to be a battle sprite for an RPG. :-[
