I finally had some free time so I decided to make a mock-up of a game concept I've been wanting to do.

Happy to be posting art here again!

EDIT2: Redid the portrait; redit the base; redid the sprites; made some significant edits to the landscape

old version:

EDIT1: made some small changes to the base/portrait; sacrificed some contrast to create some atmosphere/address some concerns

Thanks for the comments everyone, they're very much appreciated!

@Mrmo - noted! thank you!

@Carnivac - I do think the base needs some more work. The structure of it isn't entirely clear. Some of that is a product of the color restrictions, but there is definitely room for improvement there. Thanks for the comment!

Curious use of colors here!

I really like the color palette.

It's great though I find the building looks too busy and lacks a focal point as such.  It took me a while to identify which rectangle was the actual entrance.   Also why is the lady's nose that pink in the portrait.  It does make her look bit either drunk or that she has a cold. :P  I think the gray a bit darker as it seems not dark enough to contrast against that pink in her hair.   Other than those things I really like it.  :)

The only nitpick I can make is that the text is not optimally readable with the bold, striped textbox background. I like everything else, especially the colour choice!

Nice colours!

I love the coloring style. It creates a unique look for your piece.
