A little test with a sepia type palette, dithering, and reflections.

This is one of the only pixel art pieces I have ever made that I am proud of.

Update: Made the preview more interesting and fixed sun reflection.

Looks nice!

 its so simple that its perfect and i understand you use the reflection as a type of mirage effect NO problem with that :)

Peyton (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/22/2013 15:01

You two, thanks for poiting out the reflection. I have never done a piece that had a reflection like that, and we have not learned bout them in my art class yet. I will be sure to change it soon.

Exactly. The reflection was the first thing I noticed too. Otherwise it looks quite nice.

Moon (sun?) reflection looks wrong. It must be in right corner. And you can reduce colors there. Looks like 7-8 colors enough.

I could have sworn that I clicked the box. I must not have by accident. Sorry for the trouble XD

Yeah, you didn't check the thingy and i was all confused about hearts or something as i hadn't read the rules real well yet this week...anyhoo, its in, best of luck. Its lovely in that Camel Smoke Pack sort of way.

 It doesn't break any rules, but it appears you didn't click the "submit to weekly challenge" box when uploading this.

This is pretty good. Nice atmosphere, but its tough to tell what that foreground thing is (I assume it's water). 

And  the heart is looking a tad sharp, and it doesn't apply to the lightsource (intentional perhaps?)

-edit it appears gecimen fixed it

Gecimen (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/20/2013 14:38

no but you haven't clicked the checkbox. I've fixed it.

Peyton (Level 6 Hitman) @ 2/20/2013 14:37

Yes. Does it break a rule or something?

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/20/2013 08:45

Is this a weekly challenge entry?

Good choice of palette.
