Very nice, I was thinking very cel-shaded. Then you go ahead in your video and say "like wind-waker." :Skeleton:

Here is a picture of my house in SMP.  Differences between smooth and cobblestone a little hard to tell unless you're up close. But overall very clean and fun.

Thanks!

I was thinking that a simple, cartoony look would mesh well with the limitations of such dinky textures (and I love working small and didn't want to move to 32x32).

I tried a few iterations of the cobblestone and I'm not 100% sold on this as being final, myself. I hear you. I'm digging your house, though!

obsidian has almost a woody effect... maybe at some lighter colors in it to add a glare effect?

You know, I didn't really think about that. Good call!

nice, adds another layer of dimension in it as well. (while keeping the simplicity of course)

and i really love the color of the grass you picked. Some people just make it was just dark, or too of a yellowy-green.

What's great about your pack is that you stray away from what most people are doing which is pumping as much detail into these blocks as possible. You are going for a minimalistic approach while maintaining an overall great look and feel. Keep up the great work!

Thanks, Scott. I was going for a creme-mint color. I figure 90% of what you see above ground is the green, so it better be good. I think the mint goes well with a chocolate brown for the dirt.

MCWB, thanks. I'm trying!

More practice:

Starting to get the hang of characters. Mr T. has a mohawk, ear-ring feather, beard, and eyebrows that float on the extra accessories layer.

Just updated the terrain.png with a new processed wood tile. The old one was a bit funky in the plank size. It looked more like bricks than wood. Hope this fixes it.

Yes, but I think I have the PERFECT grass in my HD texture pack (Which is outdated) based of zombusters HD texture pack

Comparison with zombusters, its a very subtle change. A hue change and removing some overly light parts of grass and grey bits in the dirt.

Anyway, I think your grass has too much contrast, and is not orange enough.

I like that grass color. The yellow-green hue would clash a bit with my overall color scheme, I think. That's probably the best hue for a realistic texture pack that I've seen, though.

Haha! Man, now I WANT to make the whole A-Team.

Starting work on the UI. Again, not trying to reinvent the wheel, I just want to retain the feel and make it cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing.

Most of the UI is done. Now on to MOBs and items!

OMG your pack is just perfect!!!
No, really! You did some awesome job here :]
But I just think that the grass a little bit too green, the color is too strong, but that's just me.
And I will download and use your pack as soon as you finish it :]]]

EDIT: Oh by the way, you said some games with minimalist graphics, but take a look at Animal Crossing (Wii, DS , Gamecube) as well, in case you need more inspiration.
I'm really looking foward to this patch.

Thanks! Noted. I will take a look at the saturation of the grass.

Updated 1st post with better teaser image, added some odds and ends from the UI that I completed.

EDIT: I love Animal Crossing. It's definitely an influence on the style of this pack too.

Working on items. Really trying to differentiate stylistically (and consistently) between the different tool and armor substrates.

maybe trying to do minimalist armor as well? I was thinking like, for exemple, the leather one could have only one shoulder or, maybe a chest strap thingie like Seiya's? I think it's intended to protect the heart. Oh well. Also, i'm not pixel artist, nor I have idea if the armor stuff must be simetrical :/

I'm going to try to make the armor as simple as possible, sprite-wise. If the more elaborate designs don't gel with the simple textures, I will take them out. So far, so good, though!
