I've been working on nothing but trees for my game recently, and wanted to draw something else for a change. In this setting though, I can't get away from greenery even if I draw a house.

The trees and most of the ground are made of tiles, the house is not. The trees were put together out of tiles by an algorithm, hence the icky repetition on the birch trunk. I'm too lazy to fix it :'D

Edit: Whoops, forgot the chimney.

Interior here.

Hah...hah... "moving along" ;_;

すごい!Nice to see your game is moving along!

I love how fluffy you were able to make your leaves! Especially with so few colors. Cluster magic right here <3

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/18/2018 07:11

The game has autumn leaves strewn everywhere, but I have yet to add a single autumn-coloration tree in, oops :'D (adding orange leaves makes them stand out too much)

beetleking (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/18/2018 04:59

Lovely cluster and colors! Great work.  I love those autumn leaf<3

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/16/2018 09:17

Ah, I see! Thanks for the clarification. I think I'll keep the indistinct lighting, since it's more game-friendly, even though it looks less interesting ):

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 7/16/2018 08:31

Ahh, I also ment the lighning for the left ground slope, it could look like more lightning would hit it if you would go for darken the right one. The "more clear" was related to from where the light is coming.

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/16/2018 07:05


The slopes are tiles that serve as both left and right slopes based on how they're flipped, so shading them isn't really an option (though I suppose I could've done it just for this image, oops). The house would need to be re-lit from above to work in-game, that's going to be a project ._.

What is unclear about the left slope? Do you mean the ground slope, or the left part of the roof?

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 7/16/2018 05:05

Really like it! The house looks fantastic. Just a small tip: For the right slope, it could look better if you darken the grass a bit, like it has some shadow on it, because it seems that the light comes from the left side. You could also think about a slighly different approach to the left slope to make it even more clear.

Excellent work, I love it.

Nice cluster work and colors.

onilink_ (Level 8 Marshal) @ 7/16/2018 01:11

It's fun, because it looks totally different.

This is where we see that the combination of clusters is more important than the clusters themselves

Clusters are one thing, combination of clusters another :D

andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 7/15/2018 12:36

That`s some sort of emotions from my childhood. I really like it!

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/14/2018 15:31

Oh wow, thanks o_o! I don't feel like this is any sort of innovation, I mostly just stole the shapes slym uses here and here, and the shapes you use here, it's even the same flat-coloured approach as yours :>

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 7/14/2018 14:41

Sometimes I find myself thinking "you know, even though there are hundreds of pixel artists, there are only about a dozen or so styles of grass.  There just aren't enough different cluster types to really innovate."

Sometimes, like today, someone proves me completely wrong in a simple, elegant way.

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/14/2018 11:42

Thank you, eee! Your tilesets are among the inspirations for the art in this game ;3;

aamatniekss (Level 4 Shoggoth (The Mountains of Madness)) @ 7/14/2018 11:32

Looking wonderful! I love the colours and the foliage :)

eishiya (Level 7 Bunyip) @ 7/14/2018 06:06

Thank you! The pattern is mostly inspired by slym's work.

onilink_ (Level 8 Marshal) @ 7/14/2018 01:39

Lovely. Really cool leafs pattern.

AshCrimson (Level 5 Detective) @ 7/14/2018 00:30

This is beautiful!
