now there is too much of a noticeable jump between the midtone and the shadow. pick colors more like what vierbit chose so it's not so garish.

the grass is still too saturated.

I didn't find Verbit's midtone brown in the nes pallete, but maybe I need to check again.  The orange I have right now is the closest color to his.


Now with foliage.  The shadow effect will look better once I get the ground details in.

I think the dark shadows look too bluish.  It might look a little better to use red instead.

Blue/purple is good for shadows.

A really good process is shown in this thread.
Also very good work on the trees :y:, although some stuff would be tricky to do on the real NES.
Only the green is still a little bright. The nes palette still has a good varity of greens.

Strange, maybe some program or fileformat messing things up here. I look eventually after this.

Looking nice, BUT, this would not work on a real NES as it only has one layer.
Also if you would wanna go behind something that is not a full 8x8 tile (as in partly seethrough), I thikn one of the colours has to be fixed as transparent. Doing this with the same 4 colours but different colours as transparent would be a new palette each time. And I think you know you only have 4 of those.
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
