Red is generally much darker than green. So you have to make the red brighter in order to not blend in and seem undefined.

Make sure you always check if it looks good too in terms of brightness:

Check for the luminosity not for the lightness, the luminosity is how a human perceives it, taking into account that different hues are perceived in different brightness. The lightness is not taking that into account and instead just discards it.

My take on the colors (though probably doesn't work well in combination with the tileset):

Sorry for late post.. Thank you about this one.. I dont use much of those tools but maybe I should? Now the red is pretty bright.. I actually tried make a shadow from the seiken denetsu 3 tree but my version looks more like a highlight.

You mean these?  ::)

That is a very slight backlight. A weak light coming from the opposite direction of the main light source.

Why everybody on pixel art forums wants to copy Secret of Mana III ?



Ok the game is beautiful, but damn, don't copy their exact lighting.
I love these but putting them in your own game feels wrong. And
technically, they are. This lighting makes no sense. Maybe in a magical
forest, maybe with a blue torch near the tree, or something. But not
as the standard lighting.

There are hundred of ways to imagine and draw trees, and all pixel artists
are copying themselves over and over. Please : your tree was cool before,
I loved it, you spent months on it, and finally you try to copy Secret of Mana ?
I'm not sure about your move.

I tried to make more atomspheric tree and thats is the reason why  I copied the style but It didn't work well so I started make whole new tree ( Wich I have not yet shown). My old red tree was so messy.. I drew leaves just all over the place and i didn't like it ...

Hello guys  :) I starded working with this foliage again. Wich one is better the new or the old? New one looks more like a snes styled and realistic and the old one is more simplistic.

The new one looks more fun, the contrast makes the trees pleasing to look at. However, the old one is good for making the forest seem large and dark... Hm, it depends on what kind of a forest you want.

Yeah I know that but the main question was about the foliage composition.
