Tree

on: August 17, 2016, 05:28:46 pm
Continuing with my begginer level, here's a 32x32 tree with gameboy classic palette (4 colours). I know that there's much to do, and I'm discovering a new world working with this lack of colours and tiny res.

I look forward for anyone's comments about lighting, dithering, shape... anything that makes me learn something new!

Thank you all

Just a quick thought about the Gameboy palette. There are indeed 4 colors or tints to use, but one of them will be the transparency. So your sprite can only be technically be only 3 colors if using transparency. I believe...Someone please correct me if I am mistaken.

Other than that, I think the shape is fairly interesting, and certainly reads as a tree.

Thanks both, Jun, It's simply but nice!

Dreadnaught, you're right i think. Well, the thing is that I only thought about drawing with 4 colours and I used the gameboy palette, so the pic has 4 colours which is the important thing to me. Thanks!

You have some nice clusters, but I feel the lightest highlight is a bit wasted due to the lack of contrast. Thoughts above ^ (4 colors + trans, though removing the lightest highlight still works for the piece)
Keep up the good work.

That's what I was looking for, yaomon17!! I thought something was wrong, I'll change the palette, since what really matters is that it has only 4 colours, and, as you said, there's a lack of contrast between the lightest colours, and it will bring me powerful weapon to draw!

Your tree looks more reallistic and it has also 4 colours, the shape I think is the same, isn't it?

Dithering looks good but, I think you could use some more near the part where the tree leaves meet the trunk, Nice work with lighting though!

My take with your colors ( background should have been gray but for some reason filling it with gray resulted in greenish )

I tried something more "leafy"/"leavy" I don't know how to say that in english  :-[ something with more leaves:



P.S. I really like yaomon17's take.
