this work makes me stare at the sky first before the land~


smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/23/2009 15:16

Thank you for your favorite. And this piece... WoW... It's really really well made. Pixel art scenery at its best!

Kage no Shinigami (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/3/2009 13:25
one word...................lovely!!!

Kage no Shinigami (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/3/2009 13:25's great!

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/30/2008 04:37
Oh god, how do I miss these? Awesome!

lytron (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/30/2008 06:33
The sky reminds me of Van Gogh's "Starry Night". It somehow seems to consist of many many lines. Do you know, what I mean? Is it just me seeing this in your picture? Anyways, even without an actual Van Gogh reference this one is BRILLIANT.

Victor Rojo (Level 10 King Ghidorah) @ 11/17/2008 16:02
great great, perfect work!

Arkun (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/18/2008 07:44
Beautiful pixel. I especially love the color of the light, and dithering.

NotDex (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/25/2008 17:40
So I can make the favorite count even. :]

loaderror (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/25/2008 06:33
It's a beauty! I like the colours and dithering. Also it isn't so cartoony which is a nice break from the norm.

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/11/2008 17:32
Thanks again everyone.

meiji1990 (Level 1 Gangster) @ 7/8/2008 19:38
Wa~ look like digital painting...nicest work i seen so far...NICE!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/7/2008 18:28
very nice mood =) cute dither techniques

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 7/7/2008 12:51
Im shocked. This Piece is one of the nicest piece ever seen O____o

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 7/7/2008 00:09
You just killed me with that. It is stunning.

Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 7/7/2008
As i've said TWICE now, absolutely brilliant work, but the path doesn't seem like a path, it looks more like water.

natsukilove2 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/6/2008 20:04
I love the color and the calm but mysterious feeling of this piece. ^^ The sky has a look almost similar to that of Starry Night!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 7/6/2008 07:21
The composition and the colors make this look like a real painting! It does not really feel like pixel art (there is no doubt it is!) but that does not make this less beautiful!

Mirre (Level 8 Jellyfish) @ 7/6/2008 03:49
Very impressive! I really like the colours you chose for this one, and the composition. That sky is so beautiful too.

Tre Le Coco (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/6/2008 00:34
Simply wonderful ^^ truly an amazing peice of work :) its very interesting watching your WIP as well :)

Zenassem (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/5/2008 14:58
I actually learned a lot form watching the WIP GIF. Thanks for posting that as well! great piece!

Josiah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 7/5/2008 14:44
Wow, really thanks a lot everybody.

@Arachne: Thank you so much for the critique, if I ever start another landscape I'll make sure everything is more correct next time.

Arachne (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/5/2008 13:20
I really like the mood of this. The palette really makes this scene. However, I think it could be polished more, and the big empty space could have been filled with something more interesting. Right now, the trees serve as a kind of frame around the least interesting part.

Landscapes are not easy to draw convincingly, so I'll mention a few details I think could help make it look more natural. Trees, and especially young trees, have gaps in the foliage which let light through to the other side of their crown, so don't think of the foliage purely as a solid object. You would have clusters of brighter leaves mixed with darker ones in the dark areas you now have, and gaps where you could see the sky. Leaves lit from behind are also very bright. Looking at some reference might help. Another thing is that clouds reflect a lot of light and disperses it, so I don't think you would have as prominent shadows as you have now. The more clouds, the fuzzier and brighter the shadows will be.

In any case, I think it's good work. I hope we'll get to see more atmospheric pieces like this in the future.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 7/5/2008 08:15
Quite an improvement, really.  Also great colors and all.
Only crit is that the dithered bit doesn't really sit with the style of the rest of the pic.

This reminds me a lot of Frank Sauer, the guy who did loading screens for Agony by Psygnosis.
Here are some:

Setzer (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/5/2008 07:05
major improvement from you, I love this

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/5/2008 06:37
LOVE that sky ... bang up job

HoofFoot (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 7/5/2008 05:52
I'm faving this. Words can't express what this makes me feel.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 7/5/2008 04:30
agree with the others. Nice work, congrats!

mrduke (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/5/2008 02:31
Only 20 colors! I agree with the others "Van Gogh-like-sky".

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/5/2008 02:26
Blueberry, I wasn't see your post... xD

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/5/2008 02:25
Sky look like a Van Gogh paint :P

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 7/5/2008 02:19
The sky kind of reminds me of Van Gogh's work. Very impressive :)

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/5/2008 02:14
I like the atmospheric and handcrafted painting feel of this picture, so its faved. But I not so much like the odd composition.

Phrozen (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/5/2008 01:34
Gotta love that effect of little strokes in the sky

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/5/2008 00:48

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 7/4/2008 21:49
