 Lovely colors and shadows

Vanilla tiramisu. (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/25/2011 13:58

Wow really cute ! I love colors and the sky is pretty, good job.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/22/2011 16:18

Really lovely work, completely agree with TheInquisitor though.

picture landscape (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/21/2011 11:01

25 colors exactly wow i like it

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/21/2011 10:48

Voted for this. Good luck, mate. :)

 There were so many I wanted to vote but I voted this one, good luck :)

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/20/2011 02:56

I love the distance conveyed on the steep background hill/mountain with its very faint shades. I do have one critique though; I think the sky is too defined.

I think the sky should have less contrast to make it seem even more distant because the way I read it at the moment, the sky is closer than that mountain.

SpikeyCheetah (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/19/2011 14:52

The background looks amazing. Although I think you should add more texture to the wood on the buildings if possible.

Cilein (Level 5 Detective) @ 6/19/2011 12:27

Oh woah, love your coloring, cloud and tree textures also gorgeous, the background takes attention from the foreground though, and emphasises its lack of textures - a little more work on tiles, windows and woodwork would add a lot I think. Can't emphasize my love of the style and colors enough

NaCly (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2011 11:54

Oh, really fantastic shading!

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/19/2011 11:52

 pretty. The mountains and clouds are particularly exquisite. The foreground is perhaps a bit too sharp and cartoonish for my tastes, but that's just opinion. The mountains make up for it. :)

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 6/19/2011 11:25

This is soooo picturesque! I love it

gingerspam (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/19/2011 10:59

 all of this is amazing man, fucking top marks for youu!

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 6/19/2011 09:50

Thanks to everyone for the kind comments!

Badassbill: Yeah I see what you mean - I've tried that out, but because the palette is so restricted, the texture ends up sticking out too much.


luisniel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/19/2011 08:16

What a nice shading, very sweet. It remembered me Studio Ghibli movies, expecially Totoro.

Juniorps (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/19/2011 08:05

 nice job. 

Geti (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 6/19/2011 07:32

Damn that's some nice shading.

Ezekiel (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2011 03:50

 Wow man...really evocative work and relaxing theme! Great realization..5 stars!!

8BitBeard (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 6/19/2011 03:10

absolutely lovely

epix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2011 02:57

Love the style of this.

peanutcookie (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/19/2011 02:53

 Love the colors :D

Badassbill (Level 10 Maniac) @ 6/19/2011 02:05

I can't help but feel that a tiny, tiny bit of texture on the wood would take this piece to the next level. Great regardless.

EtNoir (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/19/2011 01:36

Great! The birds in the background are a nice touch :)

Hapiel_old (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/19/2011 01:08


Aureeo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/19/2011 00:18

She's a beaut. ^.^

Sooba (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/18/2011 23:09

 Those textures are super lovely.

SatTheArtist (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/18/2011 22:50

Pixel power!!! A+

cassiechihuahua (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/18/2011 22:43

This is great, I love the depth and colour choices, and how you did the grass.

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/18/2011 22:05

 Wow...this is amazing. I've always been a fan of your color choices, and style. Fave!

Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 6/18/2011 22:02

Woah. The clouds, the grass, the colors... Gahh! A definite favourite, and perhaps your best piece!
