I love flowing water and it was my old dream to make something like this. Finally I've made it in a form of a bg for a platformer.

Update 25.04: polished animation, added AA, tweaked little details.

- sky could be a bit more refined (I noticed hidden bird head:) 

miminsy (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 3/12/2016 04:41

That looks glorious!! The scene is absolutely pleasing and peaceful~

1ang (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/10/2016 13:34

Waterfall background you create is beautifaul. I have a project in university is to make a game. Could I use your work as a welcome screen in the game? The game will not for commercial use.

sulamith (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/31/2013 04:06

This piece has been one of my favourities for a long time. 

Great work!

Sohei (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 5/1/2012 06:55

Nowhere yet. I'm making it on my own, and it's in a state of planning, dreaming, drawing separate pieces, inventing, learning what I don't know.

Man, this is by far one of my favorite pixel works of late. Such beautiful atmosphere. Where can we learn more about the game? 

bobowitzbob (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/28/2012 19:06

This is great and I love it! Fav'd.

trough (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/27/2012 08:34

 I love the colors of the trees against the sky.

TGK (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/26/2012 23:47

 I wish the was something more random with the bird movement, like a twist at some point

mitchell547 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/26/2012 10:19

отлчиная работа, нравятся цвета и стиль :)

great work!

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/26/2012 08:26

Laughing Llama (Level 1 Gangster) @ 4/26/2012 07:47

Spectacular! :D

Yielmo (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 4/26/2012 04:36

 The birds <3

Nether (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/25/2012 22:55

Holy moly, this is gorgeous! Loving all those little details and the flow of the water.

Losm (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/25/2012 17:53

 I swear, he's adding these and editing the piece as we speak. 

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/25/2012 10:15

 Fantastic job. Your best of!

hahnt (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/25/2012 10:04

gotta say, i love platformers, and would love to play this, it looks like it would give a little bit of a challenge while having some amazing scenery to watch (distract you >_<) great work, and the water looks so beautiful!

Dark Matter (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/25/2012 08:52

 @Losm - You missed the Triforce above the bush, the fish fossil in the cliff, the lizard outline (a bit like a Charmander?) near that, a spiral in a rock and lastly another username. And possibly something else.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/25/2012 07:45

I had the same Eclep ;)

Losm (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/24/2012 19:51

 I see an eagle in the clouds, some sort of rodent-thingy in the bush, blinking, red eyes and your username. I'm sure there are tons more, but those are the ones I noticed.

Oh, and did I mention how AWESOME this looks?

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 4/24/2012 17:27

 I really like the water and the rocks, although I think you could refine the trees a bit more to make those blob-like shaps look more leaf-like. The colors are really dang good. 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/24/2012 12:37

 ah, forgot to say, 5/5 obviously"!!!

eclep (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/24/2012 09:51

 Great piece! It reminds me of this animation

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/24/2012 08:31

I could almost hear the waterfalls sound. Beautiful work! 

PixelPuddle (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/24/2012 07:27

Incredible colors. Beautiful water animations.

mikemayday (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 4/24/2012 04:31

I've set this as an animated wallpaper in my Win. Thanks for this beautiful piece!

TheManuz (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/24/2012 02:44

 So sweet! I like the soft palette, looks relaxing and i think that sprites would really stand out over it!

ofcapl (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/24/2012 00:31

 amazing! :D

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/23/2012 23:36

Cool stuff! Nice eagle hidden ;).


Neela (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/23/2012 23:29

Benjiro (Level 8 Shodan) @ 4/23/2012 20:13

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 4/23/2012 19:27

happip (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/23/2012 19:09

Elastico-Gadget (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 4/23/2012 17:47

Very inspiring. :)

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/23/2012 17:16

This is just great man. Great use of colors!

jellybeanfish (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/23/2012 17:15

 Absolutely gorgeous - love the simple fluffiness to the trees and the simplicity of the flowing water! I love the details like little bits of moss and vines.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 4/23/2012 17:15

 So beautiful :) Love the ambience of the piece. 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/23/2012 16:45

 every pixel artist have =) I coudnt quite understand the animal in the bush, it looks like its dancing

Sohei (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/23/2012 16:42

You have sharp eyes. In the beginning I've been randomly blurting colours and the shapes occasionally turned into something. I though, it would be fun to keep them.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/23/2012 16:28

 is that a bird on the sky? a white giant one =)

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 4/23/2012 16:25

RiquePixel (Level 2 Dealer) @ 4/23/2012 16:16
