I did another one, and updated the old one. Little tid bits and what not.





Blick: Thank you! Keep going with yours, I like it. Reminds me of some of the Genesis(?) rpgs.
Panda: This would benefit so much if the colors were less saturated and more vibrant.

Woah, contradiction...
But I disagree. Panda's tiles have that.. typical Game Boy feel to them. I love that. Then again, so do yours, Darion.. Which I also love. It's just, Panda's looks like it's viewed on-screen and yours looks like on an emulator, or something.

I should see if I can find the productivity to do something for this, it seems fun...

What I was really trying to say is that the color is 'dull' to me. If you look at Dragon Warrior Monsters, it is pretty bright, but it still has that gameboy feel to it. I wasn't trying to look COMPLETELY contradictory, I'm just saying it could be 'spiced' up a little.

Yeah, of course, things have to be bright on an unlit mini-sized screen. I said "contradiction" because saturation is exactly what Panda's picture lacks. "Less saturated and more vibrant" is a contradiction that way;. It's a very desaturated picture. Still, that's what I like, gives it that playing-old-game-in-badly-lit-room feeling.

To be completely clear: Saturation is the strength of a color. The less saturated, the closer it gets to grey. The more saturated, the closer it gets to burning your eyes.

Panda: It reminds me very much of an old CPC game called Fairlight. Your pic and Fairlight share a certain atmosphere.. and maybe even drawing style.

If you insist on being pessimistic about your own abilities, consider also being pessimistic about the accuracy of that pessimistic judgement.
