EcoVerse: R'haven Harbor - Town Square by AzKai EcoVerse: R'haven Harbor - Town Square by AzKai
March 3, 2015: I just updated the file to include additional tiles and animations. :) 

EcoVerse tiles were sold to Starlight Escape in Furcadia. I am in the midst of doing a new tileset, which is not isometric, which will appear in my online portfolio. Follow me on deviantArt and Behance so you don't miss it. :)

: 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 )
:iconpix3m:
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.

Looking better than ever! Are you planning on adding some form of splash where the stream of water from the statue's mouth hits the rest of the fountain? I think it would make it a bit more readable - as it is it's a bit easy to miss and looks very static compared to the rest of the water.

Still loving your use of colors, gosh!

AzKai Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Hey there! Thanks Linnet! Yes, I am. I just need to get around to it, and it will probably be one of the last details I add (along with shadows). Thank you for reminding me! <3 I definitely agree with the readability thing. Maybe I can add something to it, too... like a few shadows just to show its moving.

:iconlinnet:
Linnet Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2013
Alright, cool! :) Maybe a little bit of "flicker" on the highlights in the stream? At that size there's not really enough room for detailed animation, but it would give it a bit of movement.

Still - so excited for this!
