Deadline is close so after many many many tries and tweaks, here's my entry for the weekly challenge. Not sure if that forest is as close as gloomy but hey, I've tried :)

Thanks to the people on the challenge thread for c+c !

 Colors are Gorgeous 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 12/17/2011 11:47

 This is soo good

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/18/2011 03:31

Yes, It was one of the main inspiration :)

MMM103 (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/17/2011 18:07

Looks kind of like Out of This World. amirite?

bobowitzbob (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/10/2011 19:10

This is beautiful. Somehow, those solid color splotches on the trees are amazing. Great colors too. I am in awe.

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 11/10/2011 13:56

It took me a while to realize the trees were collapsing in the middle of the picture.  I thought it was grass poking every which way, and the perspective was as if one is laying down on their back

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/9/2011 12:04

Damn ! Sorry, I'm not familiar with all the PJ features :) Thanks !

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 11/9/2011 08:24

oh, it wasn't in response to anything you said. hit 'parent' on my comment. i can see from the application in aa in other areas that it was a time issue. excellent piece regardless.

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/9/2011 03:44

@cure: I didn't say that, I'm new to pixelart and if you look at my gallery y'ou'll see that I try a lot of things and styles. + it was a bit rushed in the end, of course it could be improved.
I'm currently learning AA principles anyway :)

Again, thanks a lot to people taking time to post a comment !

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 11/8/2011 12:47

so your argument is that jaggies look good? it shows a firm foundation in the fundamentals of art, but there are technical aspects related to the medium that could be improved. namely, the application of AA in some areas.

epoxy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/8/2011 09:27

This is at once serene (with help from beautiful gloomy blue) and threatening (thanks to the sharp, narrow composition). This forest may be quiet, but it has teeth, and it can bite.

xegnma (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/7/2011 20:02

 This is the work of an artist with a solid grasp of colour, shape and texture. I for one think the piece is stronger for the lack of AA and dithering. 

Great art.

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 11/7/2011 18:00

you and a3um did a great job with the foresty pics. each have thier strongpoints. this is really woody and real feeling while his is a bit too grey but his is really creepy and unsettling. gonna be hard to vote if too many of these  come up.

metaldev (Level 4 Murderer) @ 11/7/2011 15:01

 amazing job.

Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/7/2011 07:20

 i love this.

Rayovatron (Level 6 SWAT) @ 11/6/2011 18:32

 so beautiful 

Cammymoop (Level 6 Blue Crab) @ 11/6/2011 17:11

 This is really beautiful, my favorite entry.

I think it fits the theme very well, it's very gloomy in the foreground and the light in the background only makes the foreground that much more dark. 

This gets my vote and a fave 

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/6/2011 16:59

@Kravvon: I started that piece with an abstract feeling, with big shapes and tint areas, but after a while it became more and more "realistic", except for these branches. Whatever I tried was odd and not of my taste, so I sorta give up, even if they break the realism. 
And the lack of AA is purely intentional, I'm into an "anti-dithering" period :)

Thanks for all the overwhelming comments <3

Kravvon Nar'roth (Level 4 Ensign) @ 11/6/2011 16:34

 The only negative thing I can say about this is that the pointy branches sticking out in the middle of the piece feel rather unfinished to me, and I do think a little AA here and there would have enhanced the piece. But given the size and scope of the piece, everything else was perfectly executed. Certainly worthy of my vote. ;)

Sublyme (Level 4 Murderer) @ 11/6/2011 16:22

Stunning, this is such an atmospheric piece well done!!!!

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 11/6/2011 15:59

Oh wow, so moody! Would have loved some antialiasing, though. Would be a great piece of art on a wall.

kevink (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/6/2011 15:56

Great atmosphere you got going. The colors and the perspective are stunning.

Paxjah (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 11/6/2011 15:40

 My eyes are playing tricks on me, I could swear there's dithering, something in this.. there isn't and it is even more stunning for the lack of it. Beautiful and eerie. 

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/6/2011 15:36

 DOPE It's Beautiful

no more words

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 11/6/2011 14:55

this looks pretty amazing. :)

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 11/6/2011 14:33


Gavralcraw (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 11/6/2011 14:27

Nice. I love the colours.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 11/6/2011 14:17
