I just based my landscape material on this. I just wish I could exactly figure out what is going on with normals, ao and displacement here.

Pyxel Edit is a pixel art drawing application especially designed for working with tiles. Place tiles to form a level, edit them directly to see how they all work together, then export your tileset and the level data, and load it into your game. Tiles can even be flipped and rotated, still being editable and synced. This feature is inspired by the awesome Pixothello and Cosmigo Pro Motion, but taken one step further.

Pyxel Edit was originally a free program, and the free version is still available. However continued development to make it a more solid and full featured application has taken a lot of the developers time so the next big update will be paid. Initially there will be a discounted beta version available to support continued development. Buyers of the beta will get the normal priced later versions without further cost.

Tile references with transformations

Draw in one tile and they all update instantly. Tile instances can be rotated and flipped, still referencing the same tile data.

Make animations easily and export them as sprite sheets or animated GIFs. Onion skinning helps with aligning things between frames.

Tileset importing

Pyxel Edit can import images of tilesets or mockups and identify all the unique tiles automatically, allowing you to edit and rearrange old tilesets or doing edits of mockups easily.

Tilemap exporting

Export your canvas tilemap in XML, JSON or plain text format for super quick game prototyping. You can also repeat the last export operation with a keypress, to quickly re-export for small changes.

Intuitive UI

Designed to feel familiar to other graphics applications, Pyxel Edit is really easy to learn.
