[Feedback] Cottage

on: June 25, 2019, 05:53:01 pm
This is my first pixel art building.

I used https://i.pinimg.com/originals/bf/dd/a3/bfdda3229a505938df6ad405341fe81b.gif as reference

All suggestions are welcome.

It isn't a bad start at all!




What I suggest you do is to try to break down the straight lines to make the house seem less blocky, and more organic.
I think you should also try to play with the house's depth more, so that we can tell that the roof overhangs the beams, and some beams stick out more than others. I would also work on a bigger pattern for the stone, to make your life easier and to avoid a too noisy result.
Basically, the objective you should be aiming for, in my opinion, is to simplify and empty spaces - with a few well-placed details, you can hint at forms. What will take the most time is experimenting to which extent you can make it bare.

Keep up the good work  :)
