Welcome to the "Elder Crags" tile set.

After receiving lots of critique on the old version, I started a thread in Pixelation dedicated to improving the mockup in all aspects. You can read about the progress, step-by-step, at this link:

I believe each element is 16 colors or fewer, with no recycling between elements. From a game development angle, there'd be no reason to pursue palette unity, especially since my goal was to make the graphics more slick than retro.

Amazing colors! Looks like a Atari Jaguar or Sega game!

WredColon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/14/2013 14:05

 fantastic job man!

KnobleKnives (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/16/2013 14:27

  This is amazing! The colors especially blow me away. 

May I ask you a question? How exactly do you pick your colors? It's something I've been wishing to know for a while, and the tutorials that I've found by numerous others haven't seemed to help much. 

bem (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/16/2011 09:30

Amazing colours and style :)

artistictiger (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 7/24/2011 21:39

You sir! have extreme talent! i was just clicking through your gallery and work is just wonderful!...your another one of my inspirations among many, keep up the great work.

Pixelbear (Level 2 Corporal) @ 8/5/2010 09:13

Nice.  Especially like the background earth and cracks.....

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/25/2010 08:24

Great graphics 

Zweckform (Level 1 Intern) @ 1/4/2010 05:19

Really good work done here.

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/18/2009 10:23

I love this, my only problem with it is that the ground below looks too inviting/nice. 

Danelock (Level 1 Private) @ 10/5/2009 13:08

Looks wayyy better than the original.  Faved.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 8/5/2009 17:11

The green cliffs destroy this piece to me :( but its an awesome piece besides them. 

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 3/22/2009 09:04

But... when can I play it?

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/21/2009 18:17

The armor on the eagle is a tad weird design choice, but it's funny if that's what you went for. Perhaps smaller legs on the eagle would give it a stronger and less pin-headed proportion.

Also, having a naked lady next to score is making it virtually invisible :D The postition of her farther foot is probably a bit awkward and ungraceful compared to the rest.

Everything else is top-notch.

grimbold (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/20/2009 23:13

Looks awesome in my opinion.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 3/20/2009 21:58

Wonderful upgrade. It all feels great now.

x-death (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/20/2009 05:51

the colors on characters seemed a little off. but t is a better design then the other one liek this you submitted. but i think your previous hud was better.

jasonorme666 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/20/2009 01:06

Amazing, really like the HUD design.

Gizmonicgamer (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/17/2009 10:36

Very nice! Interesting style, good choice of color, interesting setting... Everything is well done.

PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 3/17/2009 08:09

seems very nice, gj

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2009 07:16

 I remember the old one... this is a definite improvement... great job.

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/16/2009 19:47

 Loving the level design. And I dig the king on the rocks.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/16/2009 17:35

This has improved by leaps and bounds!  Great stuff...

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 3/16/2009 16:18

This is a top notch piece. Loving every area of it.

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 3/16/2009 11:14

Oh man.......oh man....I was about to say "all this needs is booty and it's perfect," but then I looked into the top right corner.

Hapiel (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 3/16/2009 08:08

Horaay for improvement!

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 3/16/2009 06:47

Rockin! Ironically, there's no way the gameplay can match the art, haha.

danbenevides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2009 06:08

I saw your progression on Pixelation and the improvement is awesome.
Your skill in listen the criticism and choose what would be good or not to your work made all the difference between a "quimera" and this great visual.

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/16/2009 05:50

glad you came back to this one.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 3/16/2009 01:43

saw the discussion on forums and I must agree that it rocks! :)


Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 3/15/2009 19:37

Cool man! I like it a lot, specially the score bar.

HMC (Level 7 General Manager) @ 3/15/2009 18:45

Been watching this on Pixelation. Absolutely superb.

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 3/15/2009 14:36

Theres so much awesome in this, I would fail to describe all of it.

The thing that amazes me most though was seeing that you threw away some already great stuff you've pixelled to replace it with even better pixels. Seems like you weren't afraid you couldn't do better than you already have been.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/15/2009 14:29

This is killer work indeed. That Eagle is soo bad azz too. Very cool stuff!!!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 3/15/2009 14:12

It goes together alot better now! I really like it!

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 3/15/2009 13:57

not often has there been such a great improvement of a piece, through the efforts of so few, in so short a time.

The peice may still have flaws, but 8* and fav for precisely the above reason.

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 3/15/2009 13:50

indeed - this is the shit~ just incredible!

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 3/15/2009 13:46

You manage to boost it a lot.=)

TomF (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/15/2009 13:23

Slick it certainly is. A huge amount of progress from the original, excellent detail with clear separation of the games elements while still coming together in the same style. It's completely bad ass and I want to play it.

shmupstick (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 3/15/2009 13:23

Just as gorgeous as the other piece, but this one is better in every aspect (except maybe the hud, I quite liked the black splashes in the old one).


AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/15/2009 13:16

 Great work as usual. =)
