[WIP] Tiles

on: July 06, 2007, 05:28:53 pm
I think these tiles are coming out kind of lousy.

I made a scene in hope of being able to cut it up and use them as tiles. Didn't work out to well. I think the grass part turned out really bad and the colors are directly out of crayola box. Should I make it more green/brown?

I'm really lost with what to do.

That cliff is looking really good, and I like the other rock tiles. I'd say just drop the grass altogether, or have small amounts of it; there wouldn't be that much grass growing on rock, especially not bright green grass. But small clumps of low-sat grass could work.

Almost reminds me of that mock-up by Jad, which is a good thing! I think the problem lies in the colours, the grass is just green and the earth is just brown. While this is pretty much correct in real life, it doesn't make for very intersting graphics. I would suggest including a variety colours in there.

In fact lets look at Jad's: http://www.wayofthepixel.net/pixelation/index.php?topic=2465.0

See how the rocks have a sort of yellowish tint to them, and grass is also a little easier on the eye. We need a mood, an atmosphere, something more than just green grass and brown earth.

I think there's good potential here though.  :)

I saw his an loved his. I'd really like to keep the grass if I can so I changed the colors to fit a bit. I think I'll continue to play with the color ramps.

Maybe I should add vines or something to show plant life could easily exist here.
Any ideas, C+C and edits are welcome.

That grass is wayyyy too green in my opinion.

Quick Edit:


Thanks Ben, I think it looks much better. Not too green anymore?

I see absolutely no reason why the grass should not be lively green.
It is done in so many games I don't think yours should be any different.

I think it just helps set the mood more is all, since it kind of has that 'dark' look.

I don't really see anything that sets a 'dark' mood. The only thing dark is the use of a lot of dark brown to fill space, and that's typical in many platformers.
