I like that new one a lot. I agree that the trees shading could be different but I still like the feel for it.

And you say that my tileset is better than yours? I want to use your sets!

Oh and by the way, try adding a better shading to the trees, it could be a good lighthing exercise! ;)

Thanks a lot, yeah I can tell the shading needs a bit of work, lighting/shading is one of my weak points, but fixing it up would definitely be good practice, I'll try that once I get a chance!

Thanks, actually the only new tiles in that mockup are the lightened bush and the trees, the rest was already in the spritesheet, I just hadn't used them in a mockup yet.

Yeah, Shading is one of the hardest part because you're giving volume to your drawing. Hope you'll get to something neat!

Here's the updated spritesheet by the way, if anyone wants it

DO you have a defined palette or do you choose colors on the fly?

Do you have those characters facing all 4 directions as well?

I did when I started, but then I had some contrast issues so I start adding more shades. At some point, I should probably get a list of all the colors I'm currently using and sort of clean up/organize the palette.

No, they only face left/right, but for rogue-like style games, I don't think more directions are really necessary, I feel like backwards facing sprites would just look confusing and out of place on the screen.

Aah ok, I was wondering in case I wanted to use them in a game other than rogue. A while ago I had an idea for a CSE/HP Prime RPG with 8x8 tiles and with some modifications I feel that your characters would fit well. :P
