Yeah, generic name. Another mockup of an older project. Not a lot of detail in the ground tiles here - I was a bit burnt out after animating the water. Not my best work. Critique appreciated but not necessary, as I'm already aware of many flaws.

Water animation tutorial can be found here: http://world-of-noel.deviantart.com/art/Water-Temple-Wave-Tutorial-447907346

Great water! Great tiles.

Justin, I disagree that the water ripples look more like heat ripples. Both heat and water ripples exist because they distort light through a fluid medium, so *of course* they will look similar!

Wow, that's really clever. I'll have to try this out next time I'm animating water!

Hey, I added a tutorial link to the description.

NoeL (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/16/2014 04:16

Yep. Using the tutorial I made (see the description) you can create waves of any shape moving in any direction.

the work on water is just outstanding!!!!

Good job! Reminds me to the Alundra game that I played in my PS1 time ago.

Great job on the waterfall!

Inspiring! I will put it to my fav.

I'm assuming the light parts are out of bounds, right? It's good to have that contrast in detail to distinguish in bounds form OoB. It also balances the level of detail nicely. You don't want detailed texture everywhere.

Love the palette btw, and the caustics, though the ripple animation seems a bit linear, would it be possible to tile the animation horizontally as well? 

andylittle (Level 9 T-rex) @ 4/11/2014 21:22

Cool animation of water. Caustics on the walls is a great idea. I never saw fx like this in pixel art :) Light parts of the floor looks like are a bit plain.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 4/11/2014 13:55

Oh man, that water... and the caustics... I like this very much, and it's quite inspiring :)

sapoirlandes (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/11/2014 13:37

i like the water colours

feiss (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/11/2014 11:57

yup, I love the walls and the water, but the floor doesn't do them justice

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/11/2014 11:46

The reflections on the wall are great

I agree on the water feeling a bit exagerrated, but yeah overall, this is fantastic! It has a sort of Zelda meets Golden Sun feel. Personally, my favorite part is the grating used near the top of the ceiling and the face spewing the water. ^^b

A2J2TIWARI (Level 4 Murderer) @ 4/11/2014 06:40

This is awesome! Although as Marina said it's a bit exaggerated.

Anyways, can you PLEASE make a tutorial on this rippling?

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/11/2014 06:31

Nice mockup generally, but I do agree that the ripple of the water looks more like heat ripples. Great otherwise.

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 4/11/2014 04:23

My god..... The water looks awesome, but the movement is maybe a bit exagerated.

Anyway, the full scene it's too beautiful. Congratulations.
