Couple of years ago, for a wonderful client. I probably could make this parallax scroll but it'd become 24 megabytes again.

The color mix of the palette is incredible (love the tree).

LOVE the colors!

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/3/2015 08:39

it makes me want to live here.

Jackster (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/2/2015 10:48

I'm enjoying the choice of colors you used for this, such as the purple color for the shading and shadows.

Oxalis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/22/2015 04:18

Woaaaaaaaaw! The colors are amazing!

Cakeryle (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/17/2015 18:32

My mind. Just exploded! It's amazing! 

vanio_inn (Level 3 Stalker) @ 3/17/2015 04:17

So awesome and hudge 

beetleking (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/26/2015 18:02

I love it.. but does dat cloud part have dick reference?

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 2/26/2015 02:22

Awesome :o i like clouds,mountains and the house, but mhm the grass maybe it's messy (newbie crits, you can ignore xD)

Geoglatico (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/25/2015 09:59

Amazing art!

pyxl (Level 1 Intern) @ 2/25/2015 09:13

The textures! The contrast! Goddamnit, Helm, this is really enjoyable to look at! I don't understand how you are able to do this...

Harrisonk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/23/2015 19:01

that mountain is hngg

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 2/23/2015 15:18

Hmmm, the image is precisely the right width to fill two dual 1920px monitors once blown up to 300%, whatever shall I do with this . . . hmmmmm

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 2/23/2015 08:54

Hah, that's true. The colours are quite Van Gogh actually.

Mirage (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 2/22/2015 14:15

Very nice, Helm. Reminds me of Van Gogh a little bit, and that's a compliment. 

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/21/2015 17:07

That palette is lovely. The pale green land in the far back is especially nice.

Shackhal (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 20:26

I love this background!! So high detailed! Awesome!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/20/2015 18:58

reminds me of a wine-growsery in france or something, plantation :) love the right hut especially aswell as the tree

skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 2/20/2015 15:25

Damn yo, tons of great stuff to look at, love that tree, the mountain, the layer right before the mountains the wood on those houses.

Mr.Fahrenheit (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/20/2015 13:24

Dang helm! awesome. My first thought was definitely about the purple, but dang dude you got some really rich colors to work quite well.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 13:04

Sadly the project seems to be on indefinite hold.

Scarodactyl (Level 8 Ruby) @ 2/20/2015 10:59

Is there a game out there with these graphics in it?  Because I would very much like to play that game.

Zadaben (Level 1 Faerie) @ 2/20/2015 10:43

I really really love this, the colors are amazing, as many have pointed out. My one critique would be the barrels that are just sort of slapped in there, in the full image the two in the grass appear to just be floating there. I would reccomend giving them a shadow or something so they look mroe grounded. Really wonderful work though, I am in awe of those hills.

Trick17 (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 2/20/2015 10:06

Really great, I don't add favorites very often, but this is definitely worth a spot in my collection. Some nitpicks here and there (e. g. same looking clouds with harsh cropping), but I'm totaly fine with that since it's a game asset.

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/20/2015 09:11

Holy cow, that's some art.

neofotistou (Level 5 Captain) @ 2/20/2015 08:42

Amazing <3 <3 <3

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 08:21

Manupix, btw, the left house is 1point perspective because it's a modular tileset that can build more farmhouses. The one on the right is a stamp because it's unique.

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/20/2015 08:14

The whole thing is even better.  Nice tree.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 07:41

This isn't the space to go into too much detail but since a few people are asking about color selection, look at this

I spend *a lot of time* after I've made some initial hue choices in photoshop, messing with 'color balance' making really minute changes to every color for every channel, seeing if something looks a bit better with more cyan, more purple, whatever.

The reason I do this is because I've trained myself badly for 10 years with too much grey, so I ended up with a lot of very muddy pictures. When you add color via color balance, it will tint every grey in the direction you added the color towards. So it's an efficient way for me to reign in all the fanciful hue shift reflexes I have by pulling the whole thing in one direction.

In addition, if you're enjoying the summer feel of the picture, that's also the result of color balance, in that when you add certain bright colors to an already bright image you get to very carefully overexpose it, it has something of a 'bloom' feel to it. I've done this many times since, but not on artwork I've gotten to show off. 

So although I can't tell you how to pick colors, I will tell you that messing with overall color balance is a big part of my process. 

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 07:34

Thanks for the kind words, everybody.

dpixel, I agree that purple is too fanciful for the piece, but this is old, I'd rather not retouch it.

BTW, click on the image to see the whole thing

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/20/2015 07:01

Really like the intermediate background(right before the mountains).  The purple shadow seems a bit too purple, but still works.  Very nice.

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 2/20/2015 05:04

Nice to finally see this on here. Loving it.

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 2/20/2015 04:55

Argh, this makes the wait for summer even harder!

A brilliant display of your legendary skill. Perfect, except from that what |||| said about those barrels.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 2/20/2015 04:50

I want to live there

Nitpicks: the left side house 1-point perspective conflicts with the other house 2-pt persp; also floating barrels.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 King Checker) @ 2/20/2015 04:21

Great colors. Looks a bit like a van Gogh painting.
Also--This was a great time to have that new PJ addon that allows you to scroll to see the whole image.

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/20/2015 04:15

Awesomeness...would love to see the full length image, that tree in the preview looks awesome too.

Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 2/20/2015 02:08

Wow.... o.o

Really awesome.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/20/2015 01:55

I don't understand how you know which colours to pick :( 

This looks wonderful!

scottiand (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/20/2015 01:25

Wow! Simply beautiful!

Emperor_Pixel (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/19/2015 23:17

I really wish I could unveil the secrets behind your technique, or watch you doing something like this in real time.

Very beautiful.

_32_ (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 2/19/2015 23:14

Gorgeous. I'll never get tired of the way you throw hues around.

|||| (Level 8 Venus fly trap) @ 2/19/2015 22:52

Damn that looks good! The tree's a thing of beauty.

Should not the two barrels have shadow too though?

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/19/2015 22:44

The end assets for this set are about 3 times as long as this particular crop.
