Awesome scene and meticulous detail!

What's the like on the lake at night time? Great piece anyway.

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/16/2012 11:05

nice landscape

Very nice one, it's a shame we have only 3 votes when there are so many pieces of top quality like yours!

MyO (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/5/2012 00:20

Good and simple. =)

The moon on the night version is incredible.

 I knew this was you when I saw the chimney.  Maybe it's the color.

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 2/3/2012 15:45

 Your pixel art environments are some of the best I've seen. Please do more! 

Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 2/3/2012 09:12

I never noticed but yea, that makes sense to me. I tried editing the values of the sky and sure enough it does look more natural with the brighter and less saturated sky. Thanks.

And thanks everyone for the amazing comments.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 2/2/2012 21:11

Awesome! Please upload the night version so we can zoom it!

I've just noticed something that has actually unconsciously bothered me in many of your pieces: the sky highlights are not bright/contrasted enough. Clouds and the lower part of the sky should be the brightest zones in a scene like this.

MrBeast (Level 3 Dryad) @ 2/2/2012 20:10

as always your lanscapes are amazing.

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/2/2012 19:26

 Wow! I love how dramatic the landscape is, like the sweeping cloud whisps and the mountains in the background. And also the tiny people really add a sense of scale! Good luck with the challenge, I bet you'll do great!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/2/2012 16:40

Nice and crisp!

Erico (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/2/2012 16:19

  gasp! Can I live in that settlement? please?

Great piece!

Xamllew (Level 3 Chief) @ 2/2/2012 15:00

Thanks everyone! I added a night version in the description just for fun.

Friend (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/2/2012 14:54

It's beautiful Xamllew. I like the feeling / mood. I can almost feel the crisp air.

Nevercreature (Level 9 Whale Shark) @ 2/2/2012 14:42

Wow!! Sky is wonderful!!

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/2/2012 14:29

Really came out nice.

Rayovatron (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/2/2012 14:09

 The house in construction is a great touch! I love it! 

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 2/2/2012 14:08
