Kcilc, thats excellent.  :y: ;D

one more point, i think the palette is too saturated, and the marines don't look dingy enough. gotta have a few battle marks, right?
Kcilc never quite said that, so i thought i'd point it out. good luck!

well first off, you can't 'use' someone else's edit.  even though it's kind of your idea, you didn't draw all of it, so therefore, you can't call it your own. correct me if I'm wrong, but, his newest version is only an alteration of Kcilc's.
edits are used to show a personal opinion, not to give away free sprites.

second...I guess that kind of puts a hold on your player to tile issue for now.

Unless your game is going to be running in a 110x110 square I don't suggest you make him that small. He will very easily get lost in a larger resolution. Unless of course you somehow cater the entire game to sprites being that small, but if that's the case then you better make him stand out a little more.

Xestro, I think the direction you're heading now is not good. "To put many details into it, just because" is a bad reason imho. The most important thing is readability. And you really achieve the opposite with putting much details into a small sprite. I think Tremulant's edit is great because he pushes simplicity and volumes. Head in that direction.

About the size of the player. Normaly they are a multiple of 8 (8,16,24,32 and so on). Keep at this sizes and you're on the save side, same goes for the tiles.

I think it's coming great, keep at it!
