Some Iso stuff from the new guy

on: November 02, 2006, 06:57:06 am
Here are a few buildings I did. The goblin shacks are also in 256 color constraints just for laughs.






Do the extra highlights help or make the roof too light?



These are all pretty old, btw. I think the blacksmith's roof looks pretty cool.

Well, then here's more oldies:



256 again. I used to cop out on color selecting, now I just suck at it.



This was going to be on a cell phone game called Chess Boxing. It was never made for obvious gameplay reasons.



RPG makers all want sprites. Here's some I made on the FF4 scale, but they are original. Dig the crappy grass. I have an animated version somewhere. His feelers twich from time to time and the blood on his hand drips.



And lastly, one I made for a competition on a Game Maker forum. It had to be made from a template of a little man and only use 16 colors. I don't recall if I won. Another guy was going to make a headcrab zombie, but I beat him to the punch.

With the goblin shacks, I think the highlight is fine, but I think the original is also good. The one thing that I would dispute is your use of black lines. They are overpowering on some of your isometrics.. Try to use a darker/cooler shade. That way you can soften the effect but still have the divisions. Especially when you use lighter colors, an outline color that is relative is better than using pure black, in most circumstances anyways. Your texture work is great. I think you could probably put a few more details into the work such as windows, or perhaps a little more attention to light/shadow directions... not necessarily strong light/shadows.

Your other work is pretty cool. I think with my outline suggestion, you could definitely improve the works by leaps and bounds. Hope you try some of these ideas out!

Thanks for the input. I'm here to improve and will try to implement as many suggestions as you guys are kind enough to offer. I saw the video demonstrations the other day, so I know what you are talking about. I'll keep it in mind on my next project.
