Part 4 of the tile-making tutorial is up:

And just so this post has a bit more content than just 8 words and a link, here's a screenshot of a side-project:
Once it's gotten a bit further along, I'll share some more details.


  1. I have added this site to my bookmarks. You have the sweetest grafics i have seen so far for the RPG-Maker and you are making nice constellations with it. :3
    Keep it up!

  2. Nice. Good layout on everything and using the DS tiles really adds that retro touch.

    Also, I'm doing the same thing with my doorways, but I got the idea from FFVI while playing it a few days ago. Great minds!

  3. Hi, I have been using your tutorials and would like to thank you and also ask when saving as PNG do I save interlaced or not?

    1. Hi,

      I don't normally save as interlaced, as it increases the file size.

      If you're curious as to what interlacing does, here's a brief explanation:
      "Interlacing is done for web graphics. It has to do with how the images load on a web page. Noninterlaced images load in rows while interlaced images load with random pixels in each row, so they begin by looking blurry (low res) and then sharpen as they load. It's done so when you load a webpage, you can see the contents at a glance, but as the page loads, it becomes sharper.

      Interlacing increases file size, so unless you are using the .png for the web, choose "no interlacing" on .pngs."
