Greetings

I have returned to work on my old game, but I lack creativity in terms of art.
I need a castle and some building around it... Saw castle somewhere and made something similar but different and now I struggle since my creative capacity is too small to make other buildings..

I would love to see or hear your ideas on how to make other buildings like farmhouse, stable and etc. maybe some technique you use to make small buildings, Thanks :)
also would love some input on existing castle, I wanna make buildings upgradeable so that includes thinking forwards and going from simplistic building to fully upgraded. I know I talk a lot sorry.



Some additions

Hi SlimEddie!

Your castle looks good! I'm new to pixel art, but here may be some inspiration:

Still water runs deep.

now that I think about it colors on farmland seem a bit washed out and fence could use more contrast

Some small advice. You should probably turn the green background into a bright pink!
 Itís not uncommon to do this as pink itself is rarely used. It can help you see the grass in the farm tile set.

I kind of wanted that greet to be a background grass in game but I feel like the color itself needs adjustments :D
