Help with rocky tileset

I'd like to know how I can improve on this tileset. I can't get the grass right, and the rocks look like they're missing something

Thanks for checking this topic out :)

hey

I advise you use the direct link and show directly on the forum, that way people can also take advantage of the zoom script and it won't be surrounded by white ;).

BTW, your image address is "http://img511.imageshack.us/img511/7577/tileset121sj4.png", so just put it within an IMG tag ;). Anyhows I think I will leave it for your todo.

edit
I thought I'd add something about your pixels. Anyhows I think they look rather flat and the colors look rather dull. So yea, just try to give the rocks or whatever more form and play around with the palette, I think you need to brighten the grass and such up more and select more vibrant and colourful colors with better contrast.

another...

Well I done a real quick edit, just tried to bring more form/depth to the rocks or whatever and give better colours. Anyhows ya might wanna see what others have to say before looking to much into my edit, as it probably isn't the best example of how they should be. But yea, I doubt they are seemless in my edit and such, but I might continue on it and post later.

and another...

Well just continued on with my edit. But yea, I advise ya to wait and see what others see as I don't think I'm that good at this sorta thing :\.

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll keep them in mind. I'd like to hear some more before I decide what to do with it. :)

I'm having similar troubles figuring out to do with my dirt, heh.

It's smaller, but maybe my grass can help?
