Sprite base and grass tile
« on: October 14, 2008, 05:57:41 pm »
I'm making an rpg for a game competition with another guy and decided to post my work so far here to see what could be improved. So far I've got my basic male sprite base and a grass tile, I'll most likely update regularly though.

The major issue I see at this point is the walk s going to be very stiff. There is little to no bend in the legs, the
arms are a bit too short (mostly on the side view),  and you might have a hard time making the walk look fluid
with a sprite of that size and form with only 3 frames. I  personally only go less than 4 frames if the sprite is very small

I do like the grass, but it seems like you'd get the evil grid very quickly with it in large spaces.
Looking forward to further edits from you  :)

Update: New rock, made my water tiles and tweaked my sprite a tiny bit.

Arms still seem a bit short when moving, but the still frame on the side is better.
Also, I think the water needs something (I believe caustics is the word I'm looking for) to add more depth, either some
darker "splotches" to create depth or some light/white highlights to simulate reflection...or both.  :D

Also remember to add some tiles that give variation to the depth and "indent" of the lake edges
so that it does not look so man made.

Pine tree.. doesn't really fit my tileset because it's cartoonish. Got any suggestions?
