River and Cliff texture tests

on: September 12, 2006, 03:29:17 am
This is for a top-down perspective game.  I have been pulling my hair out trying to decide how to texture the side of the cliff, if you can even tell it is a cliff.  Anyhow, the red box is style 1, the blue is a much simplified style 2.  I am not sure either are cliffy enough. 

The rest of the piece is still very WIP, but feel free to comment, and or throw down some pixels to help a guy out.




Thanks tons,

n.i.

Yeah the red one is a vast improvement over your earlier one!  The main thing that stands out here to me now is that your cliff rocks are dark brown, and the other rocks (the ones in the water) are bright gray.  Maybe show some gray rocks in with the brown dirt of the cliff?

Wow this looks really nice so far.  Maybe more detail in the water instead of only having the glares?

Yeah, the water is TERRIBLE... I tried a ton of stuff to make it purdy and gave up for the time being.

Ok, cliff face is done, next up the grass.

Too many dark brown lines between the individual rock faces in the cliff face, especially in the lighter portions.  In the light areas, the cracks should be lighter as well.

Ditto - the leftmost area actually does that pretty well, but the other 3 protruding areas are very harsh

Naw, those cracks are deeper, that is why they are so dark... the sun erroded them. ;D

Sigh, alright, I will fix them. :-\  I thought I was done with those rocks.

Oh yeah, Adam, I tried the grew rocks on the cliff face, it makes sense logically, but it looked crazy.  Don't think I didn't try.
