GR#068 - High Detail Environment Scene

on: August 08, 2011, 03:41:30 pm
Okay - I decided to make the starting location of my, otherwise entirely tile-based game a large pixel painting. It took me a ridiculous amount of effort to get it even to this point, where I've decided to call it done.

That's incredible!  I can see why you wouldn't want to make something like this again (how long did this take?), but I certainly wouldn't mind it if you did.

Man, this is right up there with Colossal Katamari and Elk's Deathwing in terms of level of detail. A+, more if possible.

It's probably going to be tough to get the rest of the game to match up with something like this, especially with tiles alone... That's the only thing that makes me worry.

I totally understand your concern. I'd probably have to soften the transition to tiles a bit. Probably by populating the adjacent screen with large setpieces. I'll find a way: )

Marevellous, a joy to look at :y:

However, there are some strange glitches...



Edit: just noticed lots of more tiling going on in the rightmost grass/bushes area.

The palette is cool and I think the low-contrast is intended to give the brightness flood feel, but still, maybe, increasing the contrast might be worth trying...

Not sure what you mean by "tiling" but in most other areas I totally agree with all your pointed out mistakes. Some where oversights, others happened because I just said "fuck it". Yet others are possibly a byproduct of the schizophrenic process I used to draw this.
