Allright, so for the past day or so, I got bored, so I decided to make some graphics.
After I made some graphics I got a nice idea for a quick little game.
But now after I started this game, I realise the grass tiles I have look weird.

I was wondering if this is just me, or do you guys see it to?
Any advice on how to make this better?
Thanks

Just the left edge looks a bit off to me. BTW this looks like a good game for shady pixel to work on!

they don't look weird but you can easily make them look better. more blades of grass where it's currently just solid green might help.

@Adam - http://img1.uploadhouse.com/fileuploads/2573/2573651b0fe9641f5d20c604bfdb72b67a87e7c.png
This is the URL if that helps, lol.

@AndyUK - I know what your saying, but when I try and do this, It always ends up looking weird.

Something that I have also been looking at is the brown under the grass, I think that has something to do with this, but I have no idea what to do with it.

I would let the grass cast a shadow on the dirt in a slightly darker brown shade.

I think you should lose the white lines around the level tiles... keep it around the character, enemies and text boxes though

I say keep the white lines, but remove them diamonds from the rocks. I thought it looked better flat.

I think im going to keep the white lines, its kinda the style of the game. Ya know?
But I'm going to take out the diamonds.
They were like a test to see if it looks better filled in than flat, but I guess that, people liked it better without them.
Any other ideas I can do to the dirt/rocks?

Ive added some more shading to the platforms though. (On the side to give them a little more depth. I think it turned out good!)

I say definitely keep the diamonds, and keep the white lines around the sprites but not the background.
I love the two character sprites btw.

oh gawd i can't edit my post now.
I was going to say i flipped the little chunk i copy/pasted.

Maybe some indentations or holes in the mud might be good so it doesn't get too repetitive.
Well you had the right idea with the diamonds. Something other than plain brown might looks more interesting anyway.

Argh, this is confuzzeling. D:
I like the way I have the grass now.
Especially with the shading I added, and tomarrow I will add a new picture.
So im mainly worried about the dirt.
I thought the diamonds looked kool, but at the same time it kinda distracted from the eye a little.
Thats not what I wanted to do.

I dont want them to look like rocks though, I mean, millions of platformers do that.
How many have diamonds. ;]
Hahah.

About the white lines though, I think I like them, I dont plan on taking them out.
I've tried taking them out though, and the game looked weird with the characters, rope, signs, text boxes, etc.. all outlined in white, and everything else not.



So pretty much..

Diamons/no diamonds?
Or any other ideas are welcome!
Actually id like some more ideas, dont be afraid!
