Feedback/Tips/Tricks on my backgrounds
« on: 17 Feb 2020, 18:50 »
Hello all,

   I've recently been messing around with AGS and also diving into creating Old sierrra style backgrounds. Looking to display some my
work and see what folks have to say and if others can give feedback/tips or just general advice to improve.

It would be easier and better for you if you chose one piece for us to critique.

But I will comment on the image with the hand sculpture. There's different things at different resolutions which is really jarring. The globe for instance is low resolution and very blocky. Additionally with that perspective I should be able to see the tops of many objects, like the guitar, but I can only see the front of it. I've already forgotten what the image looked like to comment further.

It is customary to upload the image somewhere and then display the picture in the thread itself so we can see it easily and not have to leave the site. Not doing so will likely decrease the feedback you will receive.

They're all very different styles, so it is hard to give generic feedback pertaining to them all, but I will say that for the backgrounds that make use of perspective (I see it easily in marketplace, office and room1, because the textures you use don't line up with the perspective), you have a lot of perspective issues that would be jarring for players.

If you want general advice to improve your process, please share your process!
