 Great landscape, beautiful use of colors and shading.

merveilleux tableau, mais je pense que le sable, c'est trop jaune ;)

I like this a lot, but I think the fence seems to lack detail.

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/31/2009 00:22

 Have to disagree with the idea that elements were randomly plonked down.  The big rock and the fence (and also the bright sandy ground) gives the whole scene depth... and it really makes that foggy quality in the background that much better.  Its really just the clouds to the left that look rushed, so I agree with you on that.

Here comes Mr Mean, Mr Bringdown.

I love the mountains in the background and the little building, but the rest I'm not convinced about. There doesn't seem to be a lot of direction to this piece and much of the foreground stuff just seems to be plonked down to fill the space. I personally think if you left out the wood fence bit out it would've looked better (less is more!). Also, call me crazy but I kind of get the impression that you plonked that big rock pillar down in the foreground because you were struggling with attaching the foreground to the distance. I think you should remove that. I also think that instead of having a yellow sandy foreground, you should keep it consistently green and grassy as the whole piece doesn't feel very consistent. Also, this same problem looks peculiar where the thick forest trees are just right next to the sand.

The pixel work is inconsistently poorer in some areas - the rock in the foreground, the wood fence, the sandy foreground and also the clouds on the left, which aren't nearlly are well made as the clouds on the left.

What I'm seeing in this picture is flashes of brilliance and quality pixelwork, but as a whole picture it appears sloppy and bitty. The composition is poor. (Something I'm also weaker at) I reckon if you plan this out a little better, keep the mountains, the clouds on the right and much of the tree work, we could see something very special.

Sorry to be such a downer about your work, but I could see this becoming really impressive so wanted to get my views in.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/29/2009 04:13

EDIT : ah ben c'est fait...

DrEnzyme (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/29/2009 03:02

 beautiful. Very pretty indeed. This is going to sound pretty corny, but I think this picture has a nice sense of depth...

Yeah, that did come out corny.

RA/pdx (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/29/2009 01:55

Very nice picture!


@hotnikkelz: My paint program says 22 colors.

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 18:41

very nice! how many colors?

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 10/28/2009 16:27

very nice scene

AngelOTG (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 15:44

I think the roof on the house has just a little too much pop to it. Maybe lighten those colors just a wee bit?

Other than that, this is awesome! I love all the little details. :3

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 10/28/2009 15:31

Nice stuff Ergg!

DeProgrammer (Level 7 Underboss) @ 10/28/2009 15:11

I thought "Fool!" when I saw it, too. Very nice job. :D

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/28/2009 14:45

FOOL! Oh, wait.


[balder] (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/28/2009 14:19

Beaaaaaaaauuuutiful... Rocks, mountains and the sky are incredibly detailed. Good job!

nov (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 13:35

totally awesome...i love your style^^

Pik (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/28/2009 12:54

The style looks like a combination of Dex/Fool, I like it

susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/28/2009 12:43

 yaaay so cool.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 10/28/2009 12:39


The yellow ground is distracting, though. Some of the grey-greens might be better there.

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 10/28/2009 11:41


Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/28/2009 11:05

Not too bad, a bit unrealistic :P

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 10/28/2009 10:18

Bravo c'est réussi!

TioLuko (Level 5 Detective) @ 10/28/2009 09:52


just perfect....

dabl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 09:23


Zolaris (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/28/2009 08:27

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 10/28/2009 07:56

I thought this was going to be a fool piece too. Very well done!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 07:44

 That is quite nice!  I thought it Fool at first too.

Only crit would be that the clouds on the left side are slightly garbled looking.


dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 10/28/2009 07:38

Fantastic.  Nice sense of depth.

Noet (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 10/28/2009 07:38

It has some fool feeling over it, still not because of the color choose and contrast. Good job!
