RESOURCE: Pixel Water by Emotikonz RESOURCE: Pixel Water by Emotikonz
Free to use! If you want to skip background comments, just straight to "Instructions" for how to use it.
Made this for a project I am working on for the emoticon pageant. Several times I have tried pixelling water and they all looked rubbish. Tried to find resources here on deviantART but nowhere to be found! (Or at least not tagged well.)
Now that I have made water I am happy with, I am sharing it with you guys. It tessellates in TWO different ways!
(I don't know if I'll use it myself, since using it will require me to animate the WATER too! (Unless I make it comic style like ^stuck-in-suburbia, but I feel I need her permission to use that idea...)

Instructions


:bulletyellow:The image itself is in the top-left corner (since some can't unzip and it seems silly to zip one file anyway). Save to your computer (or paste it from your clipboard) and crop to the space inside the red. Then save it to your textures!

(1) The pattern works well in changing colours. The default is cool blue, but make it lighter and lean towards green (around H:-15, S:+10,B+10) for the day-time sea and make it darker and towards indigo (about H:+15,S:-20,B:-20) for the night-time sea under a midnight sky!

(2) If made into a pattern and "Fill Bucket'd", the image will seamlessly tessellate. BUT:
(3) If you tessellate horizontally normally, BUT on each new vertical set, move to the right 30px (or left 20px) it will tessellate at an angle, helping to prevent the 'grid' effect!

Wanting to animate it?
You can see how I personally animated it on this piece: [link]
Read the artist description, I describe how I did it!

That's perfectly fine; it's labelled as a resource for a reason. ;)
Thanks for letting me know, and crediting me!

Most definitely not, though Heather linked me to that afterwards. While I like the wood and stone textures, and can see use for the grass, the 'water' does not look like water to me. It looks like webbing, or a CGI image of brain cells. :stare:

I used a tutorial for this, but the tutorial itself the image didn't tessellate, the colours were weird and even if that weren't the case I wouldn't have rights to redistribute it. :paranoid: So I just kept working on this little tile until I got it looking good. :meow:

The only thing I could ever find that was close to a water resource was this tutorial. :saddummy:

Wow... I mean for the most part that looks awesome, but the water looks more like a blue-dyed computer image of brain cells. :noes: I really love the wood and stone ones though.

I haven't seen any water resources about either apart from stock photos so I'm sure this will be really useful to people. :)

There is a V shaped highlight in the bottom left corner that I don't really like. It does make it really easy to spot where each tile is.

Apart from that I think this is great! :)

Ahh, the highlight...? Maybe I'll break that up a bit... it is a little distracting.
