This so deserves 1st place for the challenge (and hopefully the monthly top!)

Somebodys been practicing over the last ~8 months.

 So small yet so amazing. I love it all!

Elementalism (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/15/2011 10:15

 This piece is absolutely beautiful! I love the 'cuteness' of the colour pallette and the highlighting used on the bricks of the building.

T-Mind (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 12/12/2011 14:06

The grass tile is awesome!

Yeah, I'm aware of the rooftop problems, and the other things you mentioned, this was very rushed, It was roughly midnight GMT, and I was racing to finish, on top of that, my modem refused to connect to the internet for ages, I count myself lucky I got it in at all. Criticism appreciated though.

Fingerfoods (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/12/2011 10:03

Love the way the trees tile. 

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 12/12/2011 07:41

Very good job! Voted.

Nitpicks: the roof perspective looks really off though. The palette could use a bit more contrast and a few saturated tones. The stream is too straight at the top.

Papermoon (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/12/2011 05:49

this is definetly among the pics that get my vote ^^

Bonhomme (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 12/12/2011 04:48

Sweet! I really like your stream and grass. I would totally play this.

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 12/12/2011 03:35

Great pixeling.

0xDB (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/12/2011 02:43

This one gets my vote. Good polished solid pixels.

CPearson (Level 4 Murderer) @ 12/12/2011 01:42

Yes, the zelda style was intended, Link to the Past was always my favourite game on SNES.

Long (Level 7 SNES) @ 12/12/2011 00:08

 Great idea, even better execution, voted.

Rayovatron (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/11/2011 21:43

 Your HUD is so awesome!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/11/2011 19:49

Very good job!

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 12/11/2011 19:35

This one is by far the most original. I love the colors and consistency in style :D

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 12/11/2011 19:03

beautiful work!

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 12/11/2011 18:19

the style on this piece is simply beautiful

offwhite (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/11/2011 18:15

Nice! Is the zelda likeness intended?
