EcoVerse: R'haven Harbor - Town Square by AzKai EcoVerse: R'haven Harbor - Town Square by AzKai
Edit: I just logged in to see I had received a Daily Deviation on this! Thank you so much ^ClefairyKid and everyone for all of your comments and feedback! I apologize ahead of time if I can't get back to you but I read every single one! <3

The WIP Town Square for R'haven Harbor! A part of the EcoVerse RP community on Furcadia!

I like it better with the palm trees and Raven fountain. :) Those buildings are a little better too! Trying to stop being so anal retentive so we can launch already, though. XD

=================================

RP with us at EcoVerse!

Sorry, had to upload this new file! dA wouldn't let me update the old one because it's a .GIF and not a .PNG. GG dA! Now with animated fountain!

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-06-13
R'haven Harbor - Town Square by =AzKai is a charming example of isometric pixel art with fascinating textures and subtle animation. ( Featured by ClefairyKid )

It's a cool little game world. Different planes are easily distinguishable, and color scheming is solid. While heavily stylized and a WIP, the next step is probably to avert what's probably the most common mistake I see when I look at game graphics- individual game assets in disunity.

The houses, trees, pretty much everything else casts no shadow despite the choice of colors clearly suggesting a sunny day. That will make your props look out of place when it doesn't look like they physically belong.

Shadows will also help add depth, knowing how MC Escher had plenty of fun with parallel projection when taking advantage of the lack of depth that can result from isometric projection.

I dunno if laymen would be able to notice the weird lack of shadows, but I think it is certainly an interesting observation much like a vampire without a reflection.

I also think tiles are a lot more presentable if they have characters in them... just a thought.
What do you think?

I will take a few more commissions for patches after I can finish the ones I have now. :3 It may be a while, though. Feel free to watch me because I'll keep my journals up to date!

Sweet! I got a question however. How much will you charge for a full set of medieval items walls and floors? 
Do you also make your own avatars? Cause I need to get a Large and baby dragon done up for the dream's main boss.

I have a goal budget of at least $500 and there is at least four of us saving up. This way while your busy with other things
we can save up for the cost of the commish.
