fun fact: the german beer brand warsteiner changed their logo with the old long s a few years ago because people outside of germany (and even in germany) would read it as warFteiner :D

i wrote a paper about this topic in art history class at university a while ago, and if i remember correctly:

there is a official edict from 1941 that says the fraktur must not be used in official documents, street signs, newspapers etc. (all print products) and should be replaced as soon as possible.

it was (probably) still in use after that because they did not have the ressources to replace it everywhere while at war.

the reason for the ban according to the edict is that blackletter is not german but jewish. but the real reason ist most likely that people outside of germany and in german occupied countries could not read any signs, newspapers etc.

the history of the german typography is a really interesting one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antiqua%E2%80%93Fraktur_dispute

the nazis actually banned the fraktur later on in favor of the antiqua.

Maybe add some characters like ä ü ö and ß or even the old long s (ſ)?

not sure about the background, but the shapes and shading are spot on!

nice colors and shading, but the nostrils look a llittle like a small mouth for me :D maybe because the mouth is usually a little higher up?

copying or redoing sprites from games is a good way to learn, but since its not your sprite it doesnt belong in the gallery. It also has way to many colors, maybe due to jpg compression

@wasteboy @monsi we ended up using the background, but with a way simpler tileset. you can see it here http://pixeljoint.com/pixelart/110632.htm

@Ireenaart Thank you :) im still working on it and trying to add more stuff



user
pyxelbit @ 2/3/2017 03:12 commented on Mayan/Aztec Tileset

@monsi Thank you :) im still working on it. i added a few more seamless tiles already, and changed the gap between the tiles to 1 pixel. Also im still working on the colors. im trying to reduce it a bit.

The idea is to have 4 tilesets with 4 different palettes based on the elements. for example a water temple with flowing water and stuff, or the sun temple with lava and fire. i hope this will add enough variety

@Taertage i actually did this after studying different fui (futuristic user interface) designs, including a few game HUDs, and i was thinking incorporating this into a small game, maybe even the whole game in a style like this.
