 nice colors!

Next time make sure to make all the objects from scratch, resizing and editting (as in the case of the red car) isn't acceptable

Hi Balamoot,

you are right, the cars are horrible. They could be removed altogether. Problem is, the bikes are worse and what do you put on the streets?

In the water i wanted to put a "woonboot". Don't know the term in English, but in Amsterdam loads of people live on the water. Or just small boats... we have boats here everywhere. Just never found the time. This piece was done in between 2003 and 2005. Its so hard to pick it up again.

I know I broke rules, the administrator already communicated this with me. Next work really made for this site will be valid pixelart. But I don't think i broke the rule about the equal dimensions. The rest of the tree is just masked by the wall. Maybe they should be longer and i guessed wrong. It seemed right like this.

Those are all good comments that will make the next one better, but  i doubt if i will ever start anything this big again ;)

Awesome buildings, bridge, reflections and shadows!!! I don't like the cars, though (especially red one, it's a copy of the porsche-looking car from

Nice work. The only thing I would add, is a bit more detail on the water and also making the trees look a little less flat.

The characters are really cute:)

Nice works in that scale ... I like work, for me look a bit empty, but look at good :)

I love your trees and their shadows. Good work !  :)

 Where's the pot smokers? Anyway, great combo of outlines/no outlines. Reflection looks good, but doesn't fit rule that mirrors (flat) create world with equal dimension. ie. reflected tree will be same size as real tree. Probably breaking rule intentionally, it looks good anyway.

great work! love the reflections in the water, really does seem like amsterdam ha!! D:

Just uploaded a better cut out... shows a bit more water and a bit more amsterdam :)

(Don't mind the top right... just filled that in a horrible way)

That's really good, I like the style and softness of the trees and reflection in the water.
