I made it pretty quickly tonight; I was amped up about having free time to pixel art.

Edit 9/16/2012:

I took out some banding that was on the moon and redrew the tree directly to the left of the castle.

I should have done this as soon as I noticed.. pardon that please.

Incredible. Looks almost like pastel drawing.

Thanks a lot to those who have commented and faved this!

I updated one color on the palette.

Night: Thank you 1st of all I adore your pixel art.

The perspective is close to an iso angle but; despite it being too clear the scene is supposed to be hilly and steep so all you see is sky beyond the castle but if it were lighter you'd probably see some steep hills too. The sky and hills are kind of being forced together in an intended unnatural way though- what I Imagined was a misty valley but with the stars and moon floating within the clouds, within the atmosphere and very low.

I should probably have gone with more of a worms eye perspective or dead on though so I agree.

I love it, instant favorite.

Wow, very nice pal!

 Wow, the moon thingy is amazing, kudos on that.

The castle area is a little less stunning though, the trees could look less "roundy" and have ctual textures of leaves, the piece it self should probably have a more defined perspective, as it's really hard to understand where's the horizon and the view of the piece. (castle's perspectie makes it look like it's isometric, while the background has skies in it, and I think I can see the horzion(?))


Nonetheless, I think you have done a good job on this piece.
