Thank you! :D I just remembered that I want to make a part 2 about tree's lol. I forgot about it.

oh man I love trees! Kinda obsessed with drawing them. It would be awesome to see a foliage tutorial.

This is impressive.  I spent about 4 hours trying to figure out texturing walls and flooring with a small palette and all I had to show for it was a sheet of unreadable nonsense. Yet here you manage to create well-textured paneling that is, if not perfect, at least legible at small sizes, and with only 5 colors to work with. This is phenomenally well-detailed for such a low color count.  I'll have to go back to the drawing board again and see if I can manage something better than the last time.

OMG thank you so much :.D My brain just broke from happiness/honored by such a kind comment. So happy to be able to help :D Pixel art in particular is a lot easier to work with and handle with a low color count, things can get out of control and confusing way too fast with a high color count, especially in regards to textures. Can't wait to see what you come up with :D

Yeah, I try to use low-color palettes as often as I can, but I often seem to choose the wrong tile size or fail to figure out how to make shapes happen.  The only option's practice, I suppose.

This is so helpful! Can't wait to try it out! <3 I'm really terrible with textures so this is really useful xD

Aw thank you so much, so glad to be able to help n_n

This can't apply to my usual tilesets. :(
RHLPixels's avatar
Ahhh, it would definitely complicate it for tilesets! Luckily though, flooring tiles wouldn't need that kind of detail. It might be handy for tables or wooden signs or something, but I wouldn't fret over the floor tiles :3

I just do my usual detailing effect, if you look in my gallery you can see that I use... I'm not sure what the technique is called. :(
RHLPixels's avatar
Ah, you use a bit of a gradient which works for tiles of that style :D
GyroGun's avatar
It's not gradient. It's more of overlapping the line tool with black at alpha 25 or 50
