WIP Tileset

on: May 12, 2015, 06:25:20 pm
Hey guys, this is a crosspost of a thread from Pixeljoint. I am posting it here in hopes of receiving additional feedback. I have another version of this at home that I plan to upload later tonight. I would do it now, but I am on a school computer and don't have the file.



What I've been told needs to be fixed
Contrast on grass
Grass tile textures

If your platforms are going to be that large, I'd add some interest in the center - maybe little holes with flowers or just some rocks. Those are really large areas of flat brown in the center.

Grass doesnt mesh too well with the much darker plain dirt tiles. It all looks good though, you just gotta unify it.

I am working on adding some stuff to break up the monotony a little bit, though it will be a while until there is enough to be sufficient.

I adjusted the colors of the grass a bit to see if that helps too.

What if you did something like this with your colours and just made everything generally a bit more vibrant and darker?

That's an interesting take on it, but I am going for a different aesthetic with warmer colors, so I don't think I will take that path.

I quite like the aesthetic you've got going on here so far, bright and moody at the same time. Interesting.

More tiles. Edited the colors a bit, and added more variations of tiles.

More stuff. I tried to fix the grass a little bit and make the tunnel backdrop more separated from the foreground. I'm probably going to need to remake the rocks and long grass.

You're doing really well imo I like the faded colour of the cave background.
can I suggest to tone down the saturation of the background colour its a bit off-putting.
I like the variation in the grass by adding tufts.
I suggest for the longer grass don't use the brightest green much/at all because it gives it too much priority inferring its interactive/solid.

Please animate the flame and surrounding tiles :-)
