r1k - I know that, the problem is that the background wall shares some colors with the front bricks, so I had to pay attention. But once I decide the colors, the tiles themselves will be easy to change.

As for the Palette, it may be personal taste but i couldn't find another variation that pleases me (again i'm not very good at colors and paint doesn't help either), but any edit from you guys will be very, very welcome.



I think I'm done with this tree, i don't see anywhere I could improve, but maybe its because I already pushed my limit (I didn't think I could do it). But if you guys give any pointers I'll sure try

Lookin' ace! Excellent foliage. You could maybe push the colours in the castle scene a little more still, but I do like the appropriately gloomy feel atm; other, brighter scenes should make for nice contrast in atmosphere.

all i want is to make the most beautiful, rich and magical forest as i can...i wanna put a lof of different types of plants, flowes, etc, and make some broken furniture for the ruins

Woodland plants for a vampire game:

Bloodroot - gnarled, mandrake-y rhizomes with bloody red sap
Wild Garlic - duh, found in droves in a lot of woods
Dogwood - 'blood' red stems and cross shaped flowers, some accompanying Christian mythology.
Wikipedia says Hawthorn & Wild Rose are handy vamp wards; maybe because of the thorns?

Thanks a lot for the plants Facet!
Well I don't even know if there will be any vampire in the game, but I really loved those and I'll start drawing right away! Sorry but I don't know what you mean by 'a little more still' (crappy English again, sorry), could you enlighten me?

Ah, sorry you said Castlevania-like, I just assumed vamps with that and the castle/gargolyes!

Phrasing is just redundant wordage on my part actually: I think you could go for a bit more colour variety than your three previous ones, but not a lot more; I like the current restraint.

I dont know, but you could just post links.  I think it easier to compare images by switching tabs rather than scrolling up and down between them anyways.

I like 3 and 11 the best, but that's mainly just the color combo they have. Not sure what kind of mood you are going for, but 3 is good for the evening-type thing. (the other evening-like colors were too dark so they looked almost hellish)
