    Alpha tile is everywhere, like 5% or even less of entire map space is taken by other tile than alpha, rest is alpha only. For ground I use doodads and not a tile. :)

    Well, it takes valuable doodad space of course and most importantly time and effort, yet it opens many times bigger opportunities for the terrain and environment art. But I suppose this method can be applied usually only to flat areas or stairs, you can't make a typical nature picture, like forest, using doodads for ground, right?

    But alpha tile is everywhere there, you can't see any other tile. :goblin_jawdrop:

    EDIT: Or do you mean those white blanks beneath the ground level? These are to cover The Black, because if nothing's there, the nothing is not covered with fog, so I must put something what could be covered with fog. In that picture fog start is set to quite far, that is why a bit of it is visible.

    Thanks, guys. :)

    I made a loading screen. This is just an edit of League of Legends art, I just added Iceborn model to it and removed original hero from the picture. I know, my GIMP skills sucks hard, but I find it acceptable.

    While we know the fact that this is edited and all, I still say that this is just purely awesome. The art is really great and soothing to look at for me because of how neat it is. I also liked that you added the title logo already and a border for the introduction box.

    Overall, nice job and keep up the good work. Don't say that you suck at this because you have definitely made a great job here!

    Thanks for the support, what I meant was that there are too many dirty, blurry spots, like fingers, borders of the model, looks not so clean and smooth at all due to my rusty GIMP skills, but it gonna fit okay I guess.
