New Mockup (Yes another) WIP

on: December 19, 2012, 08:52:53 pm
My laptop got completely wiped of everything, including all my millions of WIP mockups. I saw this not as a burden, but as a sign from the pixel gods to take everything I like out of my old mockups and make a new one with all those things, also....finish it!

Here is what I have so far, all subject to change. I really want to make things seem more 3D and "shiny" but cant fathom how without it looking odd.

Any reason for such the huge magnification?  If it's intended, I'd ditch the AA and go for less (and cleaner) colors -- the AA at this magnification is a bit overwhelming.

I did intend it to be just 2x magnification because I love seeing the pixels, but for some reason decided to put it as two magnifications :S I'll edit the main post and see if it is still overwhelming. :)

As your mountain layers go farther back, hue shift them toward your sky's color.

Yes, exactly. You see that technique used on tons of old games, it's an easy way to allude depth. Perhaps one more, even further layer of mountains might not hurt, either.

Hm, I think the mountains should still be a bit darker than the sky. Going whiter than the sky gives a very bizarre appearance that Im not sure what it implies. Mist? Short draw distance?

They do get lighter, but not lighter than the sky.  :P
