  1. thicker grass would be a good start, maybe a bigger pattern for the ..uhm.. dirt or whatever that is at the bottom. maybe double the size of what you have now

    Sorry but this isn't supposed to be a grassland, its some underwater section with crystals. This means I need A LOT of improvements.

    Edit: What I tried to do with that green thing is basically a ground, and the pink stuff are a few crystals coming out of the ground.

    Try doing a crystal shapped pattern then, like small dimonds with shine on it to make it look like crystal. (different shades of white/grey)

    But it doesn't "look" like what you described above, and that's the problem...

    Hanoch, I think what you need to improve on is, making more distinct patterns other than solid dithering which is what you tend to do for some reason. Try sketching your ideas out on paper first, then sprite it.

    This is just some random stuff I've working on. To be honest, I have no clue what direction im taking the art in.

    Certainly a step up from your earlier material. I'd like to see the grass a little taller, and some shadows under it, but certainly getting a good tropical vibe from it.

    He has eyes to see with, so it wont be a problem, unless of course he's a lazy arsehole who thinks up excuses, but I know from his work that it's nowhere near the case and he'll do a brilliant job to make it look like what it's suppose to =)

    Tidbit: what Dalek said really. Although it would be nice to see the grass sticking out of the ground, that would make it look more interesting than it already is.

    You can make it if you want. Spring Yard would be a great place, as the collision already has the circular ends for you. I bet the springs could be turned into jellyfish as well. Then again wouldn't you want water? Anyway I can't right now. I'm busy with <a href="http://forums.sonicretro.org/index.php?s=&showtopic=15930&view=findpost&p=458701" target="_blank"> 2 projects</a> to get finished for the hacking contest.

    I've been trying to make a different green hill zone art:

    Only the background.

    Rainbow Islands style? I can go with that. Perhaps your rainbow may need a little work, though - it seems a bit angular at present.

    I enlarged the grass and I added some curved pathes, but I still need suggestions for the grass pattern:

    The grass looks fine, but to be honest, this is by far the weirdest rainbow I've ever seen in my entire life, which was in no way meant to be a compliment, sorry. =(

    You want weird? Look to cartoons. Turn the rainbow into an actual knotted bow. A rainbow bow.

    Then have enemies shooting rainarrows out of miniature rainbows.

    Also:

    This and the Game Gear Ristar had rainbows you could walk on, to get to land on the other side. Well the former you swim, but you get the idea.

    [​IMG]
    The clouds need to be touched up upon. Look at many video games and see how they do their clouds. Hopefully in an emulator where you can see the tiles close up. They don't have to be as complex as above, of course. I see you are trying to save tiles and blocks with your design. How about having special tiles where the (new?) rainbow merges with the (new?) clouds.

    Certainly looks better than all those Super Sonic 64 hacks (which are always just Blue Mario in a checkered Bob-bomb Battlefield).
