EDIT//  Fixed the ear piece.

Edit// I forgot to include my references. ._. Here. Also, used Dex's Cloudy Day as ref for clouds in pixel art. 

My friend told me to pixel headphones, as I couldn't think of what to pixel. I pixelled a chunk of them, then decided I wanted to pixel water.
So I made them /in/ the water. :P

I had a lot of help from CELS and from cure, as well. :) Thank you, guys.

Are my clouds passable? :o

Also, preview image is just kinda... there. @_@ I couldn't be stuffed to dink with the text.

 Oh! It'd probably stay on top... but I wanted to  have it feel like an anchor. May I call it artistic liscense?

no, i mean that ipod(?) should not go so straightly to underwater.

 @Miumau0 You mean not so dark so quickly? :o

if you want it to be natural, it should not go straight to the "bottom". :) hope you understand what i mean,

@CELS "Dink" must be a word my aunt made up then. xD Just mess around/play with. Like I just dink with the pixels and see what happens. :)

@Divtag Thank you. ^^

Very nice work! :)

Looked up 'dink' in the dictionary and urban dictionary. Made me none the wiser...

i followed the wip thread, this came out nicely.

 Oh, no, really? xD I might dink again later. I wasn't sure if it was completely okay to use, though, because it wasn't pixelled. (I know it's the preview, but...)

ah, I liked the old preview better, I thought the text was perfect.

 @xxmanisxx I'll work on that! :O Weird, I spaced it!

@Christoballs I just looked that up. I like it. The face, especially. I'll try that, too. ^^

Thanks~

I saw the WIP on the forums before the post, i really like the bubbles, and the dithering is very good. The left ear on the headphones bothers me, it seems to be bigger than the one on the right. Other than that small bit i really like this, very good!

now that you mention it, it does make me think of cure's millstone piece.
i think less contrast between the shades of blue and more dithering patterns could make the water smoother.
the splash looks good!
