A wip I started a bit ago:
Forest stream with mossy boulders.  This'll be the first time I use a picture for most of my referencing instead of my brain.
---------------
Making good progress today.  The big boulder was very intimidating, but I think it's worked out well.

Reminds me of Mokona in that one artbook picture from Magic Knight Rayearth.  Seems fun.

@Chibi can't see where your egg is hidden, or not inserted yet ?

I made some wippy stuff, and finally settled on a Temple of Lunarius-like tileset-game-mockup thingie. Dunno if I'll manage to finish this, tho. Here's some tiles arranged in a mockup fashion:



*edit*

Progress!



The palette's my own, I made it by picking colors for 5 color ramps (grey, blue, green, purple and orange-ish) that seemed nice to me :)

I may edit it a bit later, tho.

Well, I'd say I wasn't exactly playing fair, using two colors of a similar brightness. Or darkness :)

@Pandora - no rotating.

@Zak - you need to keep the cluster in tact.

The clouds (or other mountains; I can't tell what they are) being lined up exactly behind the mountain just looks very awkward to me.

So I thought to myself...lots of people are doing things that don't have to do with Easter because they're awesome, and since I'm not, I will do something Easter related...hence, my evil take on the Easter Bunny who sends out his sinister egg minions into the world; ruining children's teeth across the world...mhuahaha...
2 colors...
Tommorow never comes why wait for it?
