The only thing lacking is color variation really, that and its too large to be a icon (or even part of a tileset) your Eggplant has better variation

So...Use eggplant coloring style and 32x32? Got it. I'm a little too busy to fix it right now, but will get to it as soon as I have free time. If you have any other suggestions, do share.

~Edit~

Note that this is not the final. I am simply using this as a test to see whether or not I'm interpreting your suggestions correctly. Does this look more like an apple? Do you like the leaf? Things like that. And if I did something wrong, be sure to correct me before I finish this. It'll save me time.

Try making the contrast between the colors higher.

Your using a pure gradient of a single color
but even objects that are red have highlight and shadows that, how do i put this have other colors mixed in with them (i used red/orange for highlights, red/purple for shadows)

all your color is in red so your using a pure red

Once you understand this you should be able to make objects good enough for the game

Ok. I have been progressing steadily, and I would like to thank anyone who gave suggestions, they really have helped. I'll use a wider array of colors. I'm also a tad busy today, and can't do the changes quite yet. I'll probably have free time tomorrow...Again, thank you for your help.

Really? Huh. I felt I was going rather slowly...But anyway! I tried creating another apple following your most recent suggestions. I did considerably more shading, but am still not finished, as I must create a transparent background. I made it smaller than 32x32 though. Also, I'm curious whether or not to add the leaf back in.

We're lacking in item icons a lot. The more you push out, the happier we'll be.

I also merged your fruit/vegetable topics a bit for clarity.

Welcome aboard.

what about adding the apple in the first post - and change the topic to something more relevant than "Pumpkin patch!".

you are making a apple after all =)

Unfortunately, I have no idea how to change the title. Also, I've tried adding a little more color in the apple. It's not done yet, but here it is anyway.

Just edit the first post (your post -> you have rights to edit it) of the thread and change the topic.

Posting work in progress is good for getting feedback.
