@big brother: Yes, now I can notice all what you're saying. I think that a lot of perspective and size issues are due to the tile or grid size, because I wanted everything to fit on 16x16 and its multiple. Thanks for the tips!

 I love your dedication to detail! So many good touches here. 

Nitpicks: As mentioned before, I bet if the bannisters/stairs were more saturated they'd provide depth to the floor. It feels like the darkest black (behind the fireplace flames) would be a more appropriate choice as the value in the under-outlines. Some drastic changes in the shadow temperatures produce muddy areas (like the stool and its shadow) Also, the bench at the bottom feels like it was rendered at a different angle. Looking down at the sprite seated on it, I shouldn't see the inside edges of his tunic. I think those lines can be just as cartoony and fun if the bend of the cloth is reversed. Plus the bench can be another opportunity to showcase your talented texture work.

Overall, the sprites capture an appealing style that is both adorable and fierce. A perceptive homage to SNES RPGs.

@Imagician: That's right, the tavern is less contrasted, and it's because the tavern tileset was done separately from the characters set and I did not review the graphics before making this mockup... No time to review discarded stuff!

great work :) only thing that bothers me is that most character have quite some more saturation in general and especially in the dark tones than the "furniture" has. it makes them feel a bit kind of unmatching to me, instead of making them stand out, if this was the intention.

Great details and atmosphere. The wooden railing seems a bit high, reaching on the level of their shoulders at least. (Judging from the height of the barmaid who's the only character standing.)

Como siempre, genial...

Super, would love to see it animated! I like the colors.

Lo entiendo, y es una lástima. Este tipo de proyectos pueden llevar años de desarrollo cuando sólo trabajan 1-2-3 personas. De todos modos hiciste un trabajo excelente, y a mí me ha encantado

I found the eggplants, hehe...

Great stuff here as usual.

So Beatiful!!!


user
rhlstudios (Level 6 Hitman) @ 6/20/2014 14:31

Word, this is amazing :D Reminds me of Chrono Trigger in its style.


user
SolarLune (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/20/2014 12:52

Yeah, it's really detailed - very nicely done! I agree with Drazelic about the walls; I think more dark colors would probably have helped out. Anyway, nice work!


user
albertov (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/20/2014 12:02

Ah, who can find the eggplants?

@Drazelic: Yes, you're right on that, I think it's because stuff in the walls need to be stretched to have more perspective, and also darker lighting would help. The room has been done via tileset, by the way.

@Mandrill: Shadowed eyes on male characters express rudeness, or something like that, like in Cromartie High, hehe...

Thanks everyone for the comments!


user
failureboy (Level 7 Assassin) @ 6/20/2014 10:09

yep, that is a VIking tavern

A brilliant scene with superb pixeling and story telling. I really love the wood texture and ambient occlusion (!).

The only thing which looks a bit strange to me is that all the male characters have just shadows instead of eyeballs, however I know it is pretty hard to do manly eyes properly with just 6 pixels.

Excellent piece!

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 6/20/2014 08:47

Nice one! Very detailed :)


user
Drazelic (Level 8 Partner) @ 6/20/2014 08:33

It'd be nicer if it didn't feel so flat. The walls don't give me a sense of... verticality? Maybe making them significantly darker than the floor rather than about equal in contrast would have helped.

The detailing, though, is superb as usual!

Thanks everyone for the comments!

@CELS: I'm sure you're right! XD I didn't use any references for this, it's done via imagination exclusively. It's mainly the result of 16 bits RPG's and Asterix comics influences. Also, the game mixed several mythologies, it was a bit weird to be honest. You can title this work "Tavern with some Vikings and fantasy elements" instead, hehe..

@Marina: ¡Y molaría cobrar por ello! Es que ya no daba abasto, Marina, me suponía muchísimo trabajo y esfuerzo, y le dije a mi hermano que dejase de fliparse y que probáramos con cosas cortas. Siendo yo sólo el grafista es imposible abordar estas historias en un tiempo decente sin morir en el intento... A mi hermano le faltaba traerme la comida y dármela a través de una rendija de mi celda... ¡Menos mal que lo he hecho entrar en razón tras lo del Flappy Bird!

this looks so cool! it's really a shame that it won't make into a game :/


user
Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/20/2014 06:00

Great!

Geoglatico (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/20/2014 05:55

Nice! i love mockups..


user
Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 6/20/2014 05:48

Es una auténtica pasada, y es una lástima que al final no los uséis porque están excelentes y molaría ver un RPG con esos gráficos


user
CELS (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 6/20/2014 05:35

While maybe not entirely historically accurate, this is pretty much perfect in every other way, as far as I can tell :) Fave'd.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. The fireplace looks more like a lavalamp than a fire, in my eyes.


user
felchqueen (Level 6 SWAT) @ 6/20/2014 05:26

Beautiful, I really like the little details like the veg boxes.
