The gardened trees have the wrong perspective. If we need one for city, why not make a new one instead of reusing old ones?

Hmm... I see your point. A gardened one could easily be made by modifying the edges of your tree.

Not really. Unless the styles are good match, recycling artworks may actually makes the game looks ripped off. For a gardened one, we can use something like this I have just created:

I have to break my habit of only giving constructive feedback on this one:

That is one of the most beautiful pieces of pixel art I've seen.

Yes, it is a very beautiful piece. Do you think it will fit in with the rest of the woodland?

With the direction we're slowly heading: yes?

The woodland tileset needs a lot of work, especially the buildings and the fortified fence.

Possible replacement for the large stump in the woodland

BTW, can someone please make the cloud shadows slightly larger

Nice stump replacement.

The rock however looks out of place. Maybe it looks too shiny and lack textures compares to the surrounding?

Anyway, I have created yet another foliage, maybe it can be a starting point for the multi-level tree?

Right now, it looks too thin. Any suggestion?

Nice work, but you might want to play with the color a little. As for it being to thin, maybe we can increase the size and remap. The multilevel tree aren't used extensively and should be easy to remape

The stump related log monster should also be retouched now.

I'm not sure the colour of the grass now fits with the colour scheme of the rest of the tileset.

Yes, I was thinking slightly brighter and ever so slightly less saturated

I started working on the tall tree. I'm having trouble with the texture of the wood on the upper part.

It has a nice texture, but it seems flat and you need some color variation.

Edit: I can’t seem to get the cattails correct, I also added Lilly pads
