This is a part of what the "main door" of my website will look like. It still has some way to be done tho, but I like how this came out.

I included the RPG Maker XP hero Alexis cuz my website will have a lot of stuff concerning RPG/Game Making.

I just added a fireflies or shines detail I wanted to have since the beginning, I also added the RPG Maker 2000/2003 hero Alex.

The depth is pretty intriguing, good job! Perhaps you can include the shadows of the characters on the ground to make them less floaty XD

Ah RPG Maker 2k3... This brings back memories and also reminds me that I have a game I need to be making. :D Wonderful pixel art!

I really like this! My only thought would be to maybe add the characters shadows falling behind them, since there is so much light coming through the cave opening. Keep it up!

Kryon (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/24/2012 03:55

 Jesus, I haven't been in here since forever. Thank you all for all your comments on my "masterpiece" :)

Horrible dithering, horrible colours and the characters look so blurred it's hard to read them.

ThomasJH (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/16/2011 08:00

loving it, shining of blue looks amazing

Sinsky (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 3/9/2011 05:02

Looks good, but it isn't masterpiece.

awesome pic  

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/25/2009 02:36

It's good, but the characters look like they've just been pasted on there.

Y'know. They're floating, sort of. There needs to be some visible ground beneath their feet.

Still, gj.

mutantenemy (Level 5 Serial Killer) @ 2/24/2006 11:55
sweet it makes them float!

Jadina (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/15/2006 11:06
the look sorta like theyre floating- you cnat see them on the GROUND. but other than that its brilliant and awesome

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 11/18/2005 05:29

Briliant.....Though....(Evil music plays on background to intesify situation.)...Isn't oblivion like hell...and isn't hell red fiere....not blue....

Correct me if I'm wrong......

P.s Rpg maker rules!

GTar (Level 1 Gangster) @ 10/3/2005 01:40
Awesome picture, I'm coding my own RPG engine atm.

I really like the lighting on the background, maybe the lighting needs to be a bit stronger on the characters themselves, a little more contrast. Also maybe make the insides of the cave a little more defined.
Awesome work though, keep it up.

fr0st (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 9/16/2005 02:46
id say tht the positon the characters are in, and how they are facing the gate/cave entrance thing, looks completely off balance they to me look very much out of place, not just the colors, but they look like the should be looking along a iso rpg playing field, this looks too much like a background to a sidescrolling game, so i would say changing that.

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 9/12/2005 08:31
 Neota and teej pretty much went over everything there.

I will jus add its great non the less

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 9/12/2005 08:07
Teej covered most of what i was going to say; the other thing is that it reminds me very much of a sequence from one of the Narnia movies, where the camera spirals down past the multiple layers of the earth's crust.
The reason for this is that your lines are pointing along each surface as though it were face-on to the viewer.
In fact, if you change most of the lighting  to point towards the top-right 'corner' of his hair, that should work much better.

You are also losing out on impression of depth slightly  cause your estimate of light occlusion (diminishing of light level by partial obscuration of the light source) is impossibly conservative. once you correct the perspective, this should just fall into

Kryon (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/11/2005 17:54
I wanted the character to be recognizable, altho maybe I'll darken it a bit more in the final version, thanks for the comments ^_^

teej (Level 2 Corporal) @ 9/11/2005 13:10

very nice, although it would be much better if character's shadings is much more darker inside that cave. 

Shark (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/11/2005 11:41

jeez, thats pretty sweet, and just 25 colours, post the link to your site when its ready id love to see :D

pixelblink (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 9/11/2005 11:31
that background is just phenomenal! I think the highlights on Alexis could be a bit more of that aqua blue colour though. Nice work nonetheless
