Hi all! I am a student at Western Piedmont Community College and am studying simulation and game development. I am currently taking a project class in which I am working on 2D game art. Every 3 weeks I have to come up with and complet a project. I would love to get some feedback and constructive criticism on my projects.
My first project was building top down 8bit style game assets.
This is my texture sheet:
This is something simple I put together just to show how it might work in game:
My second project was making 16bit style assets for a platformer.
This is still a work in progress. I am going to be using it for a game in another class. I am going to be making the texture sheet larger so I can add more assets such as torches, keys, gold, etc. I also need to add 2 more corner pieces.
My texture sheet:
Here is my 3rd project. I was going for limbo style assets. I made all of the asets in illustrator (This was my first time using illustrator).
I look forward to reading what you have to say!

I think you should avoid the black outlines on things, it looks very sharp... on the bushes and rocks you totally loose the lighting effect because of it. EDIT: Use a dark or light color instead, I mean.
Maybe some kind of inbetween tiles for different ground types would be cool too? Soft river bends? You have lots of more room on that atlas!

I think you could improve this a lot by trying to push the contrast of your elements. the square rocks stand out best atm because they have a clearly defined shape using contrast and light source. Also, right now all your textures look the same, i can recommend looking at them in grey scale to check that they stand out as individual textures.
Thanks for the advice! I see what you mean about loosing the lighting effect. Maybe lighten the color a bit so it's have more of a shadow look?
Yah, I had been thinking about adding softer transitions and corners on everything as well. Honestly I just ran out of time but, I am planing on coming back to it and trying to add some of that in.
I added some more projects. Thank you all for the advise thus far!
