Just a piece for my facebook. Did most of it while watching adventure time.

Thanks to PJ forum, Lucas Irineu, /u/bookram and Indigo for the nice crits that helped me make it better.

very good picture - everything looks great

except for that castle - looks flat and kinda out of place here

Great composition. I i'm curious about what is in this castle. =]

Very good rendering especially of trees & clouds. Clear & precise.

 I love this clean style, the colours make me feel happy.

 Think of it this way. I see a lot of potential in this peice. It's really rather good, there are just a few things that need improvement. Therefore, it is worth the time of the community to actually comment on this peice. :)

 Mann that tree is beautiful. 


user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/21/2013 18:52

 Yeah, but I don't really know how to fix it and haven't seen any examples of what people mean so I'm just kinda waiting. Also don't really feel like working on it any more, funny how my best piece gets the most critisizm

Some others have commented in a similar vein but I feel the need to reiterate. The color choice is phenomenal and I love the enviroment. However, the castle is completely out of place. The perspective is off and the scale seems wierd. Also, the outline seems to clash with the enviroment. You seem to be implying a fish-eye lense point of view with the curve of the forest and clouds and yet the castle and moat do not match that.

Overall this is a good peice but it does need a little work.

 Amazing tree! The colors are nicely combined.!

 i kinda wish the castle was in the right perspective (looks too flat to me), but I think this piece gives off a great cheery feel overall. 


user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/16/2013 14:21

I know, but that's why I chose to do it at 2x, because then you can at least see the pixels through the JPG. And of course the fact that otherwise it would be giant.

 Ugh facebook.. I like it though  Not facebook

 It's awesome C: Although it always saddens me that you can't display pixel art properly on facebook :c


user
Tanna (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/16/2013 04:09

 I really like this!

But I don't think the castle and the trees in the background does the amazing pixeled tree in the front justice. The clouds are amazing though :)

Epic work

The tree is amazing

 OMG the tree part looks so good :D

 Wow, wait up! When did you get so awesome?


user
Faceless (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 1/13/2013 17:15

This is pretty awesome. Having said that, I prefer the composition of the preview to the full piece.


user
Peyton (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/13/2013 16:56

I really like it, though the castle's perspective isn't the best. I think it could look a lot more 3d and a different angle.


user

Reminds me of Dex's piece: http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/40664.htm
Good work overall, I like what you've done with the saturation! :)

yummy


user
Stasis (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/13/2013 12:35

Fantastic! I especially love the clouds and how everything sort of directs the eye to the castle. Something about the castle seems to stick into the foreground, though. Possibly the dark outlines against the sky.


user
Theoden (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 1/13/2013 12:18

Great scene and colors.


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/13/2013 12:14

This is pretty awesome, I love the rich colors in the foreground.

I think some of the outlines on the leaves bother me though. I think you should make the outlines around the lighter leaves also lighter.


user
dianamatos (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/13/2013 12:01

 This is realy nice =D


user
Joseki (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/13/2013 11:59

 Good work overall. If i may, the moat could use some "noise" and the whole has a frontal perspective which doesn't fit the surroundings.

The clouds are my favorite part.


user
tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/13/2013 11:56

oh, beautiful! especially love the simplicity of the grass around the tree.

the civil engineer inside me is a bit annoyd by the way the towers are attached to Neuschwanstein though. this won't get approval in germany :)
