The story of the search for style

More recently started making games. All graphics drawing itself. In the current game, it takes much more than in my first game. Who cares (Grater Google play link).
Starting to draw graphics month ago. It turned out this:

mage_01_attack_01_192x192_00003.png
And more:
recruit_attack_01_192x192_00000.png recruit_move_01_250x192_00005.png recruit_move_02_250x192_00003.png wolf_attack_01_250x192_00002.png

Building:
farm_01_01_96x96.png sawmill_01_01_96x96.png barack_03_128x128.png

And:
castle_01_02_96x96.png castle_01_04_96x96.png goldmine_01_01_96x96.png

I tried and tried, watching other games. Google pictures on request "Tower Defense", "Building game" etc. Tops games in the same genre in Play market. Really love the game Kingdom Rush (played in the first version of the browser) and the style of this game was largely the inspiration.
The style began to change, now it suits me perfectly. And besides, he was quickly drawn and changing. Since everything in the vector.

New style:

The new art style looks really cool, love it.

 

 

Im not sure the characters art style matches the new buildings

There are many example of art styles (I think of manga/anime), where the backgrounds are quite detailed and the characters are cell/flat shaded. If you keep it consistent (object vs environment), then the art style could work.

 

Have you done any mock-ups ?

Asham, that works only if the toons are smaller than the backgrounds thus creating a detailed look anyway. I think you are correct that a "mockup" is needed to determine if it will work or not.

So it seems possible because of the black contour units. Since the buildings he picked up a base color. If the units to make it less bright get:

The second is 100% better and works. So.. lets hope that is the overall style.

I'll try to see this style in the first level. There is only one kind of towers and a couple of units. 

The game is on Unity, so if you're interested, the first level you can try through the Unity web player. And it soon :)

It would be great. And do not know much this genre, and probably was hastily taken for it :) But it is interesting

Works smile.png It would be pretty cool to see a larger mock-up, a complete screen.
