    Figuring out the tiles. The Roger Dean style is very much about coherence of direction and negative spaces on a larger scale. Small tiles don't play well with their neighbours so some massive tiles would be needed, and/or a clever tiling system.

    I haven't thought much about the game. Just playing around with the vocabulary here.

    Thinking about the merits of a palette with warm/cool (rust/metal). A lot of Amiga-era games used two main gradients like that, sometimes very saturated (Myth, Killing Game Show), sometimes a bit more muted.
    This onelooks nice, with occasional metal highlights where the rust has wore off. Dig the chiaroscuro light. Kow Yokoyama and Roger Dean might work well together.

    More Psygnosis games, and some Valis, Super Real Mahjong P3.

    I saw this strange kind of duck mech helmet in a Star Wars trailer on Gametrailers.com. Made me want to steal the idea for it. Then I woke up, scribbled it down at the bottom. Not as good as in the dream, but it might still be usable for something.

    Your sketches have a great charm to them. Also like your uncluttered design style, clear shapes, appealing silhouettes. Seems not many artists pay attention to these things nowadays.

    Thanks.

    For this project I've been treating the masses/silhouettes a bit differently, letting some abstract qualities command. Normally, I let the appearance of some obscure sprite command.

    At that earliest moment of creation, it's often better to not let the habits of the brain decide. That's what inspiration is for, isn't it?

    My KS would be a "4X" strategy game, I think.

    This thing would be and Exile-ish (BBC micro game), atmospheric kinda deal.

    Terrain test. Unsure about values and fog for the parallax layers.

    Bahahaha FSM

    Background separates well but is a bit "highlighter" in quality.

    Seems like it could use more leafy things, rather than just moss on everything.

    But I like moss. It's my fetish - ruins of an ancient dead civilization, now covered by plains of moss or short grass.

    Highlights were overdone. I can't seem to nail the shadow-light-air combo. I might have to fog the things quite a bit because of the amount of parallaxing elements, or the foreground characters will be too hard to read.

    Tried adding a bone color, but perhaps it's one color too many. I wanted the mountains to have a similar material as the FG stuff in some way.

    If you have a moss fetish, you should definitely check out the game Albion by Blue Byte .
