Quote from: MegaManJuno on February 06, 2019, 08:22:11 AMThe one critique I would offer, based on the screenshots so far: The background color seems to make everything look a little washed out.Aside from that, everything looks great, so far.
Quote from: ShadowOne333 on February 06, 2019, 10:12:21 AMI agree.The brownish colour really doesn't play well with oranges and yellows, I would recommend sticking to a more dark colour, like a dark blue or go for plain black.The new sprites also don't shine as much as they could due to the background colour meshing with them sometimes.
Quote from: Vanya on February 07, 2019, 05:59:25 PMPic 1 (upper-left) and 7 (bottom-left) look best to me if you are dead set on not using black.The thing for me is that no matter what color you use short of adding a color via a custom emulator palette, it is going to look hazy. Not really something desirable in the first area of the game I think.On the other hand, that brown from an earlier pic would work better in an area like Norfair to make it look hazier as it often is in later games with transparency and smoke effects that can't be done on the NES. So that's something to think about.
Quote from: IcePenguin on February 07, 2019, 06:15:42 PMIf you could manage to get black into the palette of the environment tiles, it would give it that much needed contrast. Since those tiles appear to be using the transparent color in the palette, you'd have to sacrifice one of the actual colors. If you're going for a certain style, it might be worth trying out just to see if you get any good results. As for my preference, I like the black background the best, followed by the bottom left. It might look better if the bottom left was a bit darker, though. Most of these just need more contrast, I think. Unless that "hazy" effect is something you want!
Quote from: IcePenguin on February 07, 2019, 06:15:42 PMIt'd be interesting to see that white background, but with having darker (maybe black) colors in the actual environment.
Quote from: IcePenguin on February 07, 2019, 07:38:25 PMMy curiosity got the best of me. I made a mock-up of what it would look like if the environment tiles had black in their palette. Keep in mind, this mock-up takes into consideration the limitation of the palette, and for the tiles with not much detail, I just guessed on their shape. (like the pillars) I used your bottom left and bottom right examples in this.Mock-up:Spoiler[close]
