really good palette selection!

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 2/3/2008 09:23
I think I was wrong. That's just a type of cartoon stylistic and a very well executed one. I think the reason why I was thinking it is unfinished is Tsugumo's tutorial. It was a pixel bible for me and now I learned this is just a style, not a bad example of art (well, this one is a bad example, but I think you know what I mean).

Sorry for being blind and blaming you :)

One of the coolest palettes out there. Great work!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/29/2007 21:21
This'll get my vote, really nice man. Colours and style are so soft and sexy on the eye. :D

This is just beautiful.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 7/27/2007 14:14
Great concept and I really like the "Lucky Hermit" lettering.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 7/27/2007 05:18
Great cartoony style... Good job with the composition and colours!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/27/2007 01:54
great looking picture... maybe palette need more blue or cyan to get more underwater effect..

miascugh (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 7/26/2007 23:52
Gas: I get that a lot, but do not always notice it myself, that not finishing things to the best of my abilities. I really should bite that bullet. Thanks though, also for your confidence.

Kobun: Yeah, I wasn't quite sure of the black part either, but I thought it gave it a nice bold touch and eventually decided to keep it.

Mykola, AndyOaks, Jokun, Soda, Waphex: Thanks :).

Doppleganger: I can see where you're coming from. The 'atmosphere' is too clean, the range of vision too far, little that clearly qualifies it as liquid. I had hoped that a properly themed environment, so to speak, could make up for that some (and I did try to convey a turbid impression, I just didn't do a very good job I guess :)) Thanks.

Omenith: Thanks :).

ilkke: Thanks. Agreed on the inconsistent outlining. I did try to remove the outline on the dome, but it blended in too much with the background (which, thinking about it, would not have been bad after all). As for the SandBank, I was going for that sort of crab cage kind of look, but didn't look for a reference picture. So now it's just a wooden construction I suppose. The rest of the building is meant to fit in with the generally medieval looks of the other buildings, which has no specific reason.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/26/2007 18:05
The style reminds me of Minish Cap, and that is not easy to pull off.
Very confident and 16 color palette is just incredible. Only crit is that SandBank doesn't look too underwater and that mid part has no outlines and the large dome in the back again has outlines.

Omenith (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/26/2007 14:53
I like this! Your lines convey such volume.

Doppleganger (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 7/26/2007 11:17
This is a fun one. Looks more cavey than underwatery though.

It reminds me a lot of Ilkes tower entry. Colors and what not...

I'm sure I'll be voting for this one, it's quite stellar!

Waphex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/26/2007 11:00
waw waw waw !!!

soda (Level 10 President) @ 7/26/2007 08:56
This turned out great, nice job. 

jokun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/26/2007 08:53
Great piece! Love the way you can follow the buildings off in the distance.

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/26/2007 08:50
Dead cool and cartoony. I love this and shall now add it to my favourites.

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 7/26/2007 08:09

I love the coloring style and woudn't change a single bit.

you got my vote for sure.

Kobun (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/26/2007 07:33

Like the cartoony atmosphere. This has my vote.

One thing is that dark black shadow being cast against the large dome by the large structure in the middle above the lucky hermit house.  It makes the piece feel flat while the smaller houses between the two foreground houses gives a nice sense of depth.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 7/26/2007 07:26
Ergh, it looks nice but what a potential it was! Ergh. Still love the colors and a preview animtion.
