[END] Christmas Town

Post by kr0n05931 » 14 Dec 2008, 01:12

Santa should have a town of his own for the Christmas event, I hope all artists can help contribute to this.

Here's what I have so far:

A glazing or icing around the edges could be a nice addition.

I would like to request that Aethyra is not allowed to take my art. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it, Angeliex.

First off, I posted a suggestion. I have already made my winter changes and will not be using yours. Secondly, there is no need to be rude. And lastly, we have already had this conversation and it appears you cannot do that.

That's not the conclusion I remember. In any case, this is off topic.

Crush, please add a middle-tile for the green fence, so it can be used in long horizontal runs.

That's a confusing double-negative, but good points.

The perspective for the stripe is wrong, you've done it flat to the camera rather than taking into account the curvature of the wood and the camera's real position.

And the side of the building looks, well I don't even know what it's made from.

Huh? What do I have to do with this?

The green fence is meant as a gate. When you look closely you will notice that the two parts don't connect.

  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

I was referring to the fact that Aethyra usually makes a big fuss over when we take their art. Anyways, blame Jaxad, it was his idea. It was just an artist's request anyways. If they do not choose to honor it that is fine, that is the magic of Free art ;)

Btw, the house is made out of gingerbread. Hence the strange texture.

Also, the "stripes" are candy canes, not wood.

It was just an idea. I'll be going through their art later. Now lets stay on topic here.

As for the gate, something more like the gate in the desert might be better.

I don't really like the style of this tileset. It looks like this is for a city where it is always christmas. And IMO christmas should only be at christmas. The difference is that when christmas is only at christmas, they would decorate in a way that they can remove it quickly when christmas is over. And I think there arent really much people that are willing to replace a whole fence just for the christmas decoration. Instead they would add things like those christmaslights etc to the fence. They can be removed easly when christmas is over.

I do not like those red/white things because IMO:
- It looks to busy
- I can't see the difference between snow and the white parts
- It does not have texture at all, it gives a pillow shaded feeling.

As for the wall of the house:
- It looks boring
- I have no idea what kind of material it is supposed to be.

Does this fix the candy cane perspective issues?
