Pixel Art Challenge: Tile it up


icon
Have you ever get to design your own Tileset? No? Now's your chance!
This week we want you to create an original tileset composed of at least 4 different tiles. Any type of tileset will do; rpg, platformer, shooter, your call! 
 
What is a tile you ask? A tile is a picture (usually a square) that can be repeated on X and/or Y axis seamlessly. (And a tileset is a group of tiles of the same theme.)
 
Bonus Challenge: Create a game mockup using those tiles.
 
Canvas size: Max 16x16px per tile (your final piece's size is unrestricted)
Colours: Unrestricted.
Transparency: Optional
Animation: Optional.


The challenge thread will have all the challenge updates. The thread is also a great place to post your WIPs.

Thanks for clearing that up, guys! I followed the advice and added the tile set to the final art piece.

The required challenge is a tile set.

The optional bonus is to show the tiles mocked up.

The team didn't really discuss the possibility of doing just a tile-based mockup.

I think where we have landed is that we won't reject mockups that clearly show the tiles...

...but if you can include the tile set as a tile set somewhere (e.g., adjacent to mockup, or as the preview image) that's better!

Can be the latter!

Does the final artwork need to show the tiles separately layed out on a grid (as a proper tile set) or can it be simply a scene with the tiles clearly in use?

Any restrictions on the perspective (top down, isometric, etc) ?
