As I have heard about the project not having very brilliant times right know, I decided to ask if there is something I can help you with. I love the idea and have been waiting for the 1.0 version sooo long... Don't want it to collapse or slow down to infinity.
I have worked a bit in the pixel art style. I've done some graphics for my personal project, you can see them in here (scroll a bit): https:// forum.nimnaros .pl/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=154
I was also doing couple of things for the mobile Heroes of Rahr game, until the developer said he rather wants to keep going alone. Part of the unfinished snow city view:
To get things clear - I am not much familiar with pixel-perfect drawing and I will certainly need some colour palettes and typical Heroes 2 drawing style guide, but for example this particular task
- New design for the Dervish castle/town and Witch town on the adventure map.
sounds doable for me, as there are a lot of other castles to be inspired and get main pattern. At least I can try my skills on it. I don't have tons of free time, but still it's better than nothing, I guess.
Let me know what do you think guys

I'm sending you a PM with the information on how we could work together.
Your style is pretty good, it won't take long for you to get accustomed to H2 style, both townscreen and adventure map/battle graphics.
In short: HoMM2 is not pixel art per se, I'd prefer to call it "VGA art". A 256-color palette is used, so there is no such concept as color economy; almost no dithering is used. What's characteristic for the style here is a clever choice of halftones, and it's best learned when looking at original sprites of creatures or adventure map sprites.

Is there still required guys, who convert maps from Heroes 2-Heroes 3 to H3SW? I remember last time helping with that (converting H2 M-maps), but is there still some maps which I could convert?
Don’t worry, we didn’t forget you or all the amazing maps you converted for the mod. I will contact you in one of the following days with more details, but generally speaking we are still in need of maps from H2, so your help would come in greatly appreciated!

Thank you guys for nice words and welcome I hope I will do something useful for you.
This image is beautiful!!! I'll use it as wallpaper for a while. How do you name this city? ^^
Wow, thank you! Thats really nice to hear This image has a lot of perspective issues, the whole castle is to be changed, honestly... but anyway. Name? Hmm.. No idea. It was meant to be a crazy dwarven technologist fraction with a little bit of necromancy in the background. I decided pink will add some originality here xd
I'm not sure if i'll finish it some day. We'll see. At least not in this form and not for HoR.
