    Any ideas on how to improve this cliff tile? Does the shading/lighting look okay?

    @boomy I like the color and the shading. It seems a bit blurry. No real problems with the rest, with the exception, perhaps, of some or the rock formations. They seem a bit too curvy and fluid, like frozen lava formations. It'd be great if you could make some more edges on them.

    @KanaX I like your new trees, but then again, I am always falling in love with graphics.
    It took me awhile to find this thread, but here I am.  I am really happy with the walls, some of the floor, but the one floor tile I am certain needs more done to it.  Only I haven't really done floor tiles before and could use some advice.

    @Caitlin I'm sorry, but I don't need love that fickle. I'm afraid it cannot work out between us.

    When it comes to your floor tiles, they surely lack the detail that your wall tiles have, but that's not necessarily a bad thing (lot's of details are tiresome to my eyeballs).
    However there is something you need to fix. Most floor tiles I have seen tend to be "hit" by light from a different angle (from that the wall tiles are hit). However your floor tiles appear to be hit from a 11 o'clock light source just as your wall. I would suggest that you either change it to 7 o'clock, just like your roof tiles (weird that you did it there but not on your floor), or do a "halo" around your brick.

    Here's something cooked up for you.
     

    [​IMG]

    Changed the light source and for detailing I added a faint dimple in the center of the bricks. I feel like it brings out an unevenness and some depth to the surface of the bricks, but it's also not too intrusive. You can also just expand the details of your roof tiles to fit your floor tiles for a nice texture.

    Tried to fix the "caking" by being a bit more random and wild with my layer placement. Seems good 'nuff.
    Also, placing every single leaf individually is not fun.

    @KanaX Hence why I said I fall in love with graphics, it was a hint that unless there was something wrong with it to otherwise ignore my statement.  I can't post something without commenting on someone's art and yours, I felt was really cool looking.  You new one is just as cool, but if have you thought about adding a stray branch or two?  It might help get rid of that caking a bit or at least, hid it a bit (I suppose). I took your suggestions to heart and I am going to be adding the texture after dinner.

    @KanaX


    New tree looks better. The clumps loom fine to me. Trunk looks a bit off axis but definitely an improvement.


    Thanks for your suggestions as well. Most of my recent art has been quite blurry; being too aggressive and too lazy with blending. I also agree some of the shapes don't quite mesh well (lava flow), I shall model the cliff more like Rtp where the rocks have more polygonal shapes. I think my main issue is when I draw my shapes they're all come shapes and with the blending they end up very cylindrical

    @KanaX it's fine if you're going to go for that sort of style, but I think you can do better. Right now it's very 'clean', with a perfect layer of leaves on top of each other, there's no random leaves going haywire, or missing pieces. There's also too many leaves at the bottom, you should remove a portion of that. Leaves try to seek sunlight after all, and there isn't much at the bottom of the tree where there's only shade.

    New cliff design WIP
    Does the left side of the cliff look better (less polygonal more crumbly) or the middle/right side (more blocky)?

    Working on a sprite base, note that I have barely been doing pixel art for a week XD. Can anyone give me some pointers?

    @MagixeI feel like the animation is a bit too static at the moment. Add a frame where it bops up and down and also fix the movement of the arm and it'll look better. Not going to critque or advise on the general shape of the base since that is wholly dependent on the style you are looking for.

    What do you all think of one of my NPC sprites? (I have others in different colors and clothes, but they all share the same base models and animations, including the death animation)

    Been working on a sprite project for quite awhile, and just returned to it after a several month break. There are a few of these I need to redo, but I'm looking to get a general opinion of what I'm doing so far :]

    @HonestInnocence those sprites look pretty good, very final fantasy x rm2k inspired but they have their own unique style to them. Some of the characters seem to have big hands but that may be a stylistic choice

    @HonestInnocence This is beautiful, dude. Congratulations? Are you planning to make them as full character sets? It's very nostalgic to see these characters again!

    Thank you :D I am planning on making them full charactersets. It's gonna take awhile, especially since I plan to do most of the main characters from the main Final Fantasy series, as well as the rest of the rpg maker characters (XP, VX, and MV.)


    Those sprites are in the Time Fantasy style. The first three rows are the missing characters (from the Time Fantasy sprites) from 2k(3), the 4th is FF1, and the second is FF2 (4 more characters to go for that one).
