I may have spent a bit too much time on improving my recent art High Order.
There is now a scene the knight is on. Lighting is a lot more physical now, there are apparent windows in here, but they are either out of sight or hidden by the knight. This saves me time and makes it interesting, for me at least.
Regardless, I'm happy to have already done a lot here I never did in much pixel art before. I had discovered about fading shadows with color some time ago when I was doing Sunny Goo, had an idea to place a radial gradient on the shadow I had made and noticed it looked very neat. (it mainly stayed to invoke light caustics from the slimy shiny surface.)
This combined with me recently learning about applying basic anti-aliasing have risen the quality of my work as I see it. I hope you enjoy this and future pieces, and keep sending me suggestions too. Have a great day.
