Pixel Waterfall BG. by iSohei Pixel Waterfall BG. by iSohei
I love flowing water and it was my old dream to make something like this. Finally I've made it in a form of a bg for a platformer.
Tools: Photoshop
4-frame water animation. 8 frames total for crazy-super-sonic-badly-animated-birds. )

This is incredible! Everything about it is perfect, even the birds. Also, I noticed an Easter egg in the background clouds. The one in the middle looks like a crow's head. Was that intentional?

Yes, it's been a week of work over the piece, things like water did not want to work right, so I got bored and filled the place with little easter eggs.

Amazingly done! I'm so jelly I love in a jar. Bgs have been my biggest bane in terms of pixel art. I'm using XP-ms paint.  I don't suppose you have any advice? (besides the obvious practice practice practice.)

To excel pixel art, one must excel traditional drawing. Understanding of perspective, obtaining a sense of volume and a restless color practice is required.
Pixel art is a mere cover of your inner understanding.

How you do it to diferenciate the normal layer from the deep one? darker? lighter? perspective is my nemesis XD

iSohei Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014
Mostly by the tone and saturation. Background can't have light tones above certain level. White is absolutely forbidden.
This particular work might brake the rule, I don't remember paying attention to this aspect in this work. Because it wasn't really intended to be used in a certain game.  The waterfalls and jungle trees stand far too much, from my metroidvania world.

You are a master pixel artist! Also, I think I see a giant bird head in the middle of the sky (not the flying birds in the right). Was that intentional? Either way it's really really cool. Oh, and one of the ground bushes looks like a raccoon! Ok, I think I'm seeing animals everywhere.
