I'm quite a huge fan of floating islands, and this is certainly not my first piece involving them, nor my last.  Looking back at some of my earlier work, though, I'm glad to see just how much I've improved.

I actually intended for the colours to be cold.  The decision was partly out of preference and partly to make the scene seem cold.  After all, it's gotta be a bit chilly at that altitude.  I do appreciate you taking the time to tweak to colours like that, though.  Perhaps I'll try working with some warmer colours in the future.

I feel colors are way too cold

edited here in 22 colors and tweaked colors a bit.

@DirtyPig - I use  It's not designed for pixel art, but it's really straight forward and has all the tools you need.

@bittersweet_batty - Thank you!  I did indeed leave a bit of the sky empty on purpose.  Partially to keep attention on the island, and a bit in order to highlight how empty the surrounding sky is, securing it as an analog for the ocean.

I see you ;)

Nicely done! The bottom left corner might feel a bit empty, but that might be intentional. I like the rock and mountain shading in particular, and the clouds overlapping the islands came out really well.

I feel like the sky behind the island is abit too dark, but apart from that a lovely island.
