Animated waterfall tile

on: May 03, 2011, 08:39:58 am
It's been a long time since I've posted in these forums! Lil nostalgia! :D But since I've started pixeling a little more, I figured why not.

So I'm working on an amazon-themed landscape for a sidescrolling game on iPhone and currently trying to make a nice waterfall animated tile. For now, focusing on the base tile and I'll animate it later, when I actually get something nice.

So here are my latest explorations... there's something not right with this and I'm quickly getting frustrated, as I've always been absolute sh*t at trying to pixel water for some reason. Halpmeh? :(




Thanks!

No waves for waterfalls. No sky reflection either, because they're so er, foamy and splashy :D Try sticking to whites and light blue/green tints.

Random wallpaper and step-by-step waterfall painting off the internet. Might be helpful to get a feel for em:
