Pixel art version of one of my original paintings.

Edit: Tried to reduce the banding on the border of the grass near the dirt path and made some small corrections to the darker colors near the houses.

Your pixels is so good and minimalistic! 
I realy like this style. Nothing annoying eyes with unnecessary details, only clear contours and objects
Damn, it's cool

np. - I forget to say that composition of this piece is near to perfect

(not that I'm big fan of countryside landscapes but still catches the eye :) )

keep it up!

@ParkerBabyDiaperCompany: Thanks a lot! 

You are absolutely right, that banding has been bothering me too. I will fix it soon.

Cool picture, but there's some serious staircase banding going on on the edges of the path.

@MetinSeven: Thanks a lot!

Great work. It radiates a nice atmosphere using minimal lines and colors, like traditional comics.

@Macaroni and Cheese: Thanks a lot! I am glad you get that feeling from the perspective.


user
Macaroni and Cheese (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/27/2017 21:18

Nice stuff. The perspective puts the viewer right in there in that pleasant atmosphere.

@eishiya Maybe their ground keepers are really good. xD

@eishiya:

I agree with you about the grass around the path, it looks way too regular and clean for grass. I might change that in a future edit.

About the color in front of the buildings: I am aware that there shouldn't be any shadow there. That color is there to imply some different colored ground and coloration going on. Like dirt, darker grass or some sparse grass, you know. It is there because without it I found that the buildings don't look the way I expected. And I prefer the version with that color in front of them.

Thanks for checking out!

Mandrill (Level 9 Vice President) @ 1/25/2017 07:48

Wonderful, just wonderful!

I don't think I've ever seen black outlines not get in the way of atmospheric perspective and a feeling of breeziness before. Good job, that's sorcery!

The perfectly smooth edges of the path look strange. Grass is rarely that tidy, and you even drew the transition looking more ragged and grassy in your original drawing. Because the edges are so clean, it looks like the path is a slab lying on top of the grass, even though the shading suggests it's carved into the grass.

Another crit I have is that since the fronts of the buildings are lit, there shouldn't be shadows on the ground in front of them, since the buildings would not be casting shadows in that direction, and there is nothing else to cast those shadows.
