Well, here it is. It's taken way too long, I've been lazy making it, and I've started like 5 other pixel arts during the process. I've been making it for a thing for my mom, and mission accomplished, she loved it. I'm not as happy with it as I should be, but I'm satisfied, want to move on to other things, and working on it was starting to get old.

I know there's flaws, and I see many of them, but I don't feel like working on this anymore :(

Thanks to Alkaline for his great help with color picking, Badassbill for general advice and awesomeness, .Anubis. for advice and crit, 1up for critiquing me the whole time, Opacus for advice and crit, Shawn for...shawnsupport, and Josiah for giving me amazing tips and advice. (Some of which I couldn't put into play :() All in all thanks to everyone. I used 36 colors... too many, but at this point it doesn't matter to me.

Agh. Big description. Anyways, enjoy...!

My last words on this; thank you everyone for all the ratings comments and favorites, I really enjoyed making this piece and I'm glad you found enjoyment in it. I didn't expect #1, and even now looking back on it, it's still surprising. 

Thanks to all~

 y'know the clouds always reminded me of the time i used to call those kinds "fake clouds"

nostalgic indeed

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 4/9/2009 21:25

There's a lot to enjoy going on here. You had trouble with gradually diminishing the perspective. Overall, a quaint scene.


user

Looking good. Good field of depth.


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/22/2009 12:20

Thanks so much everybody!

Great job, I love the gentle gradients between colors - so soft.


user

 I really like the contrast.


user
Chaoxys (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/3/2009 21:19

Looks good as always, although I'm not a real fan of how you did the clouds. Everything else is fine though


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 3/3/2009 20:15

 Thanks, everyone. 

@iLKke, thanks :) I noticed the blurring as well, but after the fact. If I ever get some spare time, I might work on changing it. Thanks again.

@blueleds, same answer as iLKke :)


user
blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/3/2009 18:34

 Initial impression is very good and I like it... but as your eye goes from left to right, the image becomes less coherent and unreadable... like it's blurry and out of focus, which may have been your intention because it's in the distance.... but I think if you made the stuff in the bottom right area clearer, this pixel art would be perfect.  Specifically, I can't tell what is directly beside those houses... is it mountains, or boulders... it sorta blurs from grey to green.

Ghostclown (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/3/2009 10:41

Nicely done!  I really like your color selection.


user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 3/3/2009 03:21

Beautiful composition and colors! Awesome work!


user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 3/3/2009 03:12

This is a huge imporvement for you as far as I see. Congrats!

However, the space and perspective are pretty lousy. You chose to blur most of the part in distance, so the rocks by the road abruptly disappear and the mountains seem to be tiny and stanting right next to the city (if it's a city)

Hidden signature is a nice touch

CeeY (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2009 21:03

Nice work.


user
Destiny (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2009 20:41

Dex is forcing me to >:

Also its really good, its shaped up compared to the original. I wish you would redo it since you can make it a whole lot better now :P


user
Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/2/2009 19:37

I thought Fool made this. thats awesome.


user
RazzBerries (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/2/2009 19:21

Awesome job Dex, love the colors you used. I also really dig your shading style, it looks really nice and pleasing to the eyes. Keep up the good work man.


user
Joshr_691 (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/2/2009 17:36

Very nice, can't see anything wrong with it


user
Black Boo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2009 15:35

For the third time. Love the colors. That's all that really needs to be said.


user
ptscf (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/2/2009 15:20

You already know what I am going to say... =D


user
elend (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 3/2/2009 15:07

The good thing about not being the creator of this piece is, that I don't really see any flaws. I like it how it is. It turned out quite wonderful. Love the colors, the technique and the overall... peaceful atmosphere in it.


user
crazy70 (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/2/2009 15:05

Lovin' it. Rated as 5 Stars, Favorited it


user
Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 3/2/2009 14:59

Really nice scene, i especially like the bird. The scale seems a bit off in the distance, as the town looks like it's on the same distance as the mountain, and therefore either the town looks huge or the mountain looks tiny... since the road is a pixel wide also, i think the buildings would be smaller anyway. Perhaps a wider canvas may have helped. :P

Everyone loves clouds tho.


user
BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/2/2009 14:49

P-p-p-pwnage

Another great peice from Dex - Keep it up!

Very nicely done. Not seeing any major problems at all.

Good drawing. I Personally would add another branch in the principal tree.
