Made in one and a half hours for this video tutorial:

video in x4 speed, pretty much self explanatory. 35 colors or so.


*2010 color edit. It was just bugging me*

it reminds me old 90s games!

Maowc (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/5/2017 18:20

nicee, remind of the old snes games out of this world or something like that.

Lindion45 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 3/1/2015 10:58

Clicked on it for the awesome text. Was not disappointed!

Splurge (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/3/2015 23:37

Nice atmosphere.

JustinGameDesign (Level 8 Marshal) @ 4/1/2014 12:18

This reminds me of Out of This World. I like the strange landscape and the details of the water are great.

ttapisgreat (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/11/2014 20:35

Is the video still up somewhere? It would be great to see.

Either way, an amazing piece.

FinoRaptor (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 11/25/2013 12:38

 I love this 'flashback, Another World, Prince of Persia' style of games, and this mockup doesn't stay behind :)

zaua (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/22/2013 15:45

Nice details and colors!

Bbohemio (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/26/2011 11:39

Cannot get the vid, but AWESOME work, you've just won my first comment, as I just LOVE the art and the theme... Reminds me of a twist of Flashback and the first Prince of Persia... Just incredible.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/1/2010 06:13

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm pretty fast but I'd be a better artist if I weren't, honestly.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/30/2010 11:27

How on earth did you manage to create something like this in only one and a half hours?? It's such a beautiful image! I really like the pixel work on the tree.

I agree with nimrod7. It also reminds me of Flashback and Myth C64 (both games I failed to complete...)

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/16/2010 11:00

Don't think Myth has anything to do with Flashback.

nimrod7 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/14/2010 15:25

the tree reminds me of flashback, the rest is myth-like (c64 version of the game)

Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/14/2007 03:12
the tree is gorgeous. i like this things that hang down from it.

!CE-9 (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/11/2007 12:10
pure beauty. the tree and the water win the internets; the rocks (below the ground) look too --bubbly? though...  (of course I'd be happy if I could've pulled it a quarter this nice)

immediate fav & all.

Really nice mockup and tutorial. What is that program you're using?

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/13/2007 18:02
I love that tree. This picture reminds me of the game Flashback. Must be the style of the character.

happip (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/30/2007 14:55
I love the tree :D the color scheme makes it look from another planet o. o

Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 2/1/2007 00:33
I had a flashback of Flashback. 4/5 for the piece*, and 5/5 for the PRICELESS video tutorial. You're BAD! :)

* everything's OK (esp. the tree), but that pitch black distracts me.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 1/2/2007 06:07
It reminds me a little of Jill of the jungle- only more detailed tiles. Might have already been said, but the outline of the rock seems slightly harder edged than other outlines. The use of bright green in one of the clouds is also fairly distracting. My favourite bits are the birds and the trees. Shall d/l the tut when I'm next home.

Bob_Jones (Level 2 Peon) @ 12/10/2006 11:14
That tree is brilliant. I dont really like the amount of black in the ground tiles, just too much in my opinion.

flurdoing (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/9/2006 19:11
This totally reminds me of 'flashback' also. That was a great game, and tihs is some really nice picture. Sega Genesis ftw!

Nevanda (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/7/2006 06:38
Looking little like Flashback :)

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 12/5/2006 04:29
looks more flashback than another world to me, but im loving it. =)

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 12/4/2006 08:02
yeah I love this, mainly because it reminds me of possibly my fav game of all time, anotherworld. Love the moody atmosphere youve created. And for one and a half hours work its outstanding. thumbs up.

thor (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/4/2006 05:13
Great mockup. The outlines on the single rocks are ugly though, it is contrasting with the rest of the scene, and they blend in too well with background.

But lovely mockup, reminds me too of Flashback and a bit of another world.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/4/2006 04:58
Adarias: at the time a tint for the blackness didn't occur to me, I agree a cool blue or a purple would probably be better than pure void. If I were still working on this I'd put it in, but I won't 'cause if I do then I'll feel like putting in slopes and fixing other stuff... too much for now.

Everybody, thanks for the kind words.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/4/2006 03:55
I saw this video earlier.
I really focused on how you did the tree.

Wonderful work Helm. :B

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 12/3/2006 22:40
I love it. It reminds me of prince of persia but in a jungle world :D It would rock to see some animations and such of the dude in the picture. Fav!

Khris (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/3/2006 22:36
Yeah, the game you're thinking of is Flashback.

I instantly thought of that when I saw this, at least.

brod'tam (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/3/2006 22:32
The whole thing is wonderful ! The tree upleft blows my mind

brod'tam (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/3/2006 22:31
...was it the game named "Flashback" ? ...that's what it reminds me but I ain't sure

7even (Level 9 T-rex) @ 12/3/2006 21:50
Out of This World A.K.A. Another World? Well, at least it's what reminds me 8D

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 12/3/2006 21:34
Currently dl-ing the video. Can't wait to see it.

Ack, what is the videogame that this so reminds me of?  It was the one of the first games to have really beautiful, fluid animation. Grrr, it's going to drive me nuts.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/3/2006 20:33
That's one impressive video tut (a liitle music won't hurt=)) I like how you work with colors, on a fly, looks very easy.=) Black though creates a hole rather then deep shadow.

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 12/3/2006 18:12
Wow very nice work. I like the colors and shading.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 12/3/2006 17:44
makes me think of fglashback

only crit is the black filler, id have prefered if you had taken a few moments to pick a color that would give it life and atmosphere instead of the black which drains from both.  still, is a very nice work and the tutideo is quite nice

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/3/2006 16:12
haha yes, sorry, 1 hour, 35 minutes. I slapped myself.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/3/2006 16:10
   Wow. Looks great. I'm liking the tiling action of the cliff/land. I don't really know if I'm allowed to crit this, seeing as how you only took 1:35 minutes to work on it( Seeing as how I haven't seen the video yet, does that mean 1 hour and 35 minutes, or 1 minute and 35 seconds?....if it's the latter, I'm going to slap you...) Eh screw it, I'll call it like I a see 'em.
   Okie-doke, I love the detailing of the environment and the simple background, but the character sprites just aren't doing it for me. They seem kinda flat and out of place.( not flat in sprite terms, but flat in character. What? So I'm anal, gimme a break already.) Also, on the two last bottom pieces of land tiles towards the bottom right side of the cliff seem out of place. Maybe switching the tile on the left of the aforementioned, with one of the almost black/barely dithered tiles might make it blend in more. Also, I'm diggin' the tree. Very Bonzai-ish, though I'm sure that is not the exact type...
