Parallax Mapping (Work Flow)/Easy Object Shadows/Lighting & Shadows

This is a good place to start if you're looking to learn a little bit more about PSD organization - and how to add a little extra to your parallax maps!

I'll go over...
  • Different Types of Shadows
  • Lighting Effects & Color Dodge
  • Easy Tinting
  • Exporting Properly
  • Easy object shadows (with outdoor lighting in mind)




Future Tutorials

This is not an exhaustive list and I'd love to hear what the community would like to learn about - or even what I could expand upon in this video! :kaohi:

It looks really pretty. In the first video, can you show how it's implemented into MV? Also I would be cool to see how it looks with characters walking on the map. I'm trying to learn as much as I can about parallax mapping.

Updated the post with a new tutorial that shows how I draw shadows/lighting and use color dodging to make it pop!

@Papillon Effect I made your tutorial tonight - it's scheduled to go live on Friday morning. :kaothx:

These are great little tutorials. I don't use Photoshop, but most of these tips and tricks can be easily carried over into GIMP - just requires some tinkering. I've really enjoyed watching both yours and Fallen Lorelei's parallaxing videos. :)

since all my maps are hand drawn... I admit, I super envy those who can make the tileset's work. I'm garbage at mapping, but slightly less bad at just drawing my own areas. plus it's easier to draw my own sprites than edit others to look like my characters.
Guys, I made a trailer! And, I also launched the Steam page! If you would like to support the game, please Wishlist it :ahappy: ->

aww man, color hex code #C4C4C4 doesn't work for the tint value in this scene I need something darker, which stinks just because I liked that one it was my favorite plastic explosive three times...#696969 (nice) should work better (WHY IS MY BRAIN LIKE THIS)
Tell it to me straight, doc. If I've been trying to piece together a "shorter" game to learn stuff outside of game jams... am I just running away from my WIP? :v
