Yeah the X eyes don't come across very well.

I wasn't really suggesting  using both shocks, that's just how they feel to me - in other words they're not totally interchangeable, they seem to suggest different things.

Photoshop for sprites but what about your mockups, what do you use for tiles? Surely you don't use PS for them, too.

Hey Mathias,
Thanks for the input on the eyes, my programmer and I haven't been seeing eye to eye on them.

Right for my mock ups, I'll break the tileset out in photoshop using smart objects (if you're unfamilair with photoshop smartobjects are just linked objects), and then use a program called Tiled :: http://www.mapeditor.org/ :: for creating the actual tilemaps.   Tiled is really awesome tilemapping program. It's not the best out there (DAME is what I would like to be using) but tiled works great with XNA games and it's what my programmer wanted to use so we went with that.   A nice feature that tiled does have is to save the map out as an image which I can then load up in photoshop to do my mocks.

The top of the doors shouldn't be so dark lighten them up a bit so that the doors actually look like they fit their door frames but still have the shadow on there just lighter...

that's not a shadow on the top of the doors it's to make them look rounded.

Then I think the squared off stone frames around the rounded wood doors should also be rounded. They need to match, whether both are squared or rounded.

Here's an edit with the rounded corner on the doors.

I'd say you've fixed it.
