Nuu, I know. D: -needscontrast- Hopefully this one right here is better.

I... didn't think about flowers. Do you think I still need them?

So far, I'm having problems with only one section:


The sign. As far as I can assume, most everyone is happy with the perspective. But... the bottom looks strange now. Anyone else seeing what I'm seeing?

Edit: ... Well... maybe I should work on the structure beneath the sign to know how to do it? Ehh...

BUMPDATE:



Kinda going back to basics? It really doesn't have much of a hospital-y look with the shutters.
I'll prolly return to the sign, but I thought the side-pokeball seemed like a good idea.

I went with the hospital-y colour suggested before, but much more contrasted.

I really like that. The asymmetry adds a nice touch. ;D

In the hypothetical inside there should probably be light on the right side of the floor coming from an unseen window. What building has just one window?

On the other hand...

What about something more like this?

(changed doors for practicality added ledge over windows and pasted on the pokeball from my old edit [fit just right!] to dramatize the perspective of the mid-lower half)

Asymmetry is great for composition, but with a Pokemon center I think it's about readability rather than artistic license. I assume people, when playing a game, would be alienated by that.


I suppose it's all to do with your goal - to replicate the environment of the game or to showcase a fresh interpretation?

someone will probably post a screenshot of an in-game asymmetrical pokemon center, i just know it <3

Just to be a jerk  ;)


Not sure which game it's from, but I seem to remember an asymmetrical mart as well. Will do a quick search. (Not trying to invalidate you point, just showing how those Nintendo dudes do it.)

EDIT: And here it is.

The orange is a tag; Not a door-handle. XD I suppose it's unreadable, huh?

XD Well, all PKMN Centers are asymmetrical.

See?

Either way, I'm going to take a closer look at your edit when it isn't 3-30 in the morning while I have a Chemistry /and/ a French final. D: I dunno, I was thinking of making other buildings, and perhaps reaching the point of making a mock-up or something.

HAHA~ The mart is red. XD That must be one of the beta screenshots. It's still asymmetrical, though. <:

I haven't played Pokemon in so long, I've forgotten things like that.  :P I suppose that's what research is for.

I'm kinda a Pkmn geek, so... c: I often forget to realize that other people don't remember little details like that.



M-My roof design? ;___;



I tried to put back the Pokeball on top.

Edit: Hahaha... Now my old design looks kinda laughable.  :-[

i like the blues in the wall of the original better than the yellows.. the new version looks too yellow all over it as if the sun is setting or something.. so i guess it depends what you're going for..
