 I tried making some rock tiles. Then I tried assembling them into a tropical headquarters island thing. Oh, and I was playing way too much Cave Story these days, too.

Base palette was, of course, DawnBringer's 16col one, but I kinda tweaked the colors.

Delicious work.

My only complaints are that the crystals in the floaty rocks don't really look attached to the floaty rocks, and that if those plants are supposed to be background scenery they're far too bright for an actual game. Otherwise very, very pretty.

 Are you thinking about making a game with these?

You've really come a long way man. I was just looking at some of your older stuff and found this one I posted on almost 6 years ago. http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/15696.htm ... You're a pro man.

 what you say is cave story, what i see is contra.  could just be the palette tho.  Excellent work!

you'd be amazing at making a sonic level

 Thank you guys for the feedback. I'll keep working on this tileset, I have some ideas for more terrain types and doodads :P

Beautiful, never seen something quite like it.

This is brilliant.


user
Jetrel (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/14/2012 14:11

 Nice.

I like that although it obviously shares some ideas with the whole neo-retro cave-story/fez-spelunky look, it's legitimately breaking new ground there.  Very good stuff.

Clouds are a little meh.  Water is brilliant due to the perspective effect.

 NICE, I love it!

It seems to have a classic Sonic vibe to it.


user

There's no rly much to say ... it's fantastic and that's all ;)

 Love the colors, though I agree on it not being very tropical. DB's palette goes well with your style.


user
Christoballs (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/13/2012 10:59

it doesn't seem very tropical... good work otherwise!

Nice tile work as usual!

Oh my, this is lovely :)

 Why the rushed clouds and the rocks and pillars underwater end abruptly? 


user

Dobar style,sviđa mi se.



user
Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/13/2012 06:41

This is awesome, despite the "Cave Story again" vibe. 

Clouds look rather bland/flat, and clusters of bushes looks clogged and lack readability... 

Apart from that, rocks are fantastic, the front/back ground difference is nice, and the details are awesome. Love the floating islands; those tiles are wonderful, really !

HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/13/2012 06:32

 personally think it would be better without the clouds. Anyway, awesome pixel 


user

Awesome ! This style is amazing.

Wow, that's very interesting

 ! And you say you cant draw rocks!

It might be the current screen I use, but the details are quite hard to see! 

And as always fav <3

 awesome job, fav it!


user
slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 1/13/2012 05:12

 Love the idea of blue in the bushes, however, they do look a bit flat. This would look better if you brightened your darkest color on them when it nears the brighter leaves. The colors are very interesting. Great work!
