"Making my way through the foliage once more, I finally came across a clearing. Unfortunately, it had not been the earthen path, but instead revealed itself to be a beautiful lake. A lone lake, filled with eerily calm, crystal blue water. Yet despite the location being seemingly blissful, there was no peace here and I was not feeling safe. As a matter of fact, the inside of the woods felt safer than the lake bank I was standing on. [...] Also quickly noticing the sky that had started transforming into a sunset, I had no choice but to go back whence I came."
A scene from the story I'm writing. The weekly challenge was a perfect incentive to both bring it to life and try some more pixel art.
(also nevermind that the lake looks green but the text excerpt describes it as blue haha)
