Art Progress
« on: January 13, 2010, 05:13:46 PM »
I figure that I'll be more productive if I make a topic about this. Due to lots of work nothing more will get done until Saturday.

DONE:

 - All the original grasslands tiles.

TO DO:

 - Make new human style houses (two variations?)
 - More town tiles (lamp posts, streets, ect.)
 - Different terrain to liven things up (dirt, swamp, sparse grass, ect.)

Requests and ideas are appreciated!

1/13/10 - stone paths done and trees touched up
1/24/10 - finished revamping original grasslands tiles

That's exactly what I was thinking for the human buildings  ;)

actraiser (SNES version) has similar graphics to what we are doing, maybe you can draw some inspiration from it ;)

Good luck with that :P

I guess the town building segments in ActRaiser have kind of similar graphics to what I'm doing, but they're really two very different styles.

I couldn't help but take some time off from studying Chinese to work on the tiles a bit... the stone paths are now done, and I added some finishing touches to the trees. I must say, I am very rarely completely satisfied with anything, but after spending a while wrestling with a few uncooperative pixels I think the trees are just about perfect.

Until I recognize the next glaring error, of course  ;)

Did some work on this today. How do you guys feel about cutting the bush from the game? No matter how I edit it it either looks like a blob of green or way too detailed.

I could never draw a good bush for some reason. Cursed shape.

The upload might have messed up the quality a bit.

Really excellent work Ham! :D I love the rock with pebble clusters, it adds so much depth with a few variations like that. Terrific job! :)

Thanks, I'll try to get the new stuff done soon :)

EDIT - I'll add what I have so far to the repo so you can try it out in game.
