Super rusty with pixel art, so I felt like I should join in this time. Decided to take heavy inspiration from Yoshi's Island, which immediately came to my mind when I saw the theme, as it's one of my favorite video games. I'm nearly finished with my own piece, I'm just not certain yet which of these I should go with for the sky, so I figured I'd ask for feedback.

Which background do you think suits the image the best? Are there any other elements of the image you think still need work? Feedback is, of course, greatly appreciated.

This palette is fantastic!

I was thinking, "one of the colors' name is 'white' so.. I can just pixel something that is normally white or bright I guess... xD"

And its greens look just too fun!
