Thanks for the feedback all!

Looks really good! Colors are great, although I might not agree with that light blue-ish purple in the grass

I absolutely love the colours!  I don't quite know where to look in the image, the composition is a little complicated, but otherwise brilliant piece.

Lighterthief (Level 1 Private) @ 8/27/2015 01:31

Thanks! Yeah it definitely needs improving :)

Beautiful piece, @Lighterthief! I agree that the logo, as beautiful as it is, has a little bit of a hard time standing out, and it might just be me, but I thought it said "Waves Time" until I scrolled down and saw the description. Might just be me though.

@Manupix, thanks for posting that link. I've never been able to figure out how y'all counted all the colors.

Lighterthief (Level 1 Private) @ 8/24/2015 13:51

Brought it back to 48 colours. Could probably reduce even more but for this piece the starting point was not to create a scene with a limited palette. I will definitely give that a try though. So much to learn. 

As for the blue "grass" area. I agree it's a little flat, but I think it kind of balances the dominant orange colors.

This is fantastic, great pallette and rendering

Ooo lighterthief nice work.  I've been looking forward to this game since fantasy online was shut down!  Still very excited to see the final game!

Lighterthief (Level 1 Private) @ 8/23/2015 02:44

Thanks all :)

@Doppleganger I see what you mean. The logo is a stripped down version of what it would be on it's own(where it has it's own background). But I guess the reading path is still the same as you described so I'll see if I can improve on that. thanks!

@Manupix Yeah I knew someone probably would mention this. I'm fairly new to pixelart, specially these big pieces. Is there a way to reduce the color count easily? As there are indeed quite a few  "accidental" pixelcolors. 

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/23/2015 02:36

I love this big time. But why does it have 120 colors? At least some of these look accidental, as they cover very few pixels.

The foreground bottom 'grass' brick red and purplish blue don't work well imo, they are very close in value while very different from the next orange tone; makes this area look flat.

Why isn't this on the front page?!

Those trees are amazing! Love the palette and contrast on them.

I think the logo needs some work. Due to the palette and its overall value and volume it is pushed back somewhere between the foreground and the character looking at the horizon. It's kind of a cool placement for the title screen, but on its own the logo is going to have a hard time standing out. Furthermore the composition of it makes it a little hard to read to automatically infer 'Waves of Time'. Instead the eyes go to Time first, then Waves, and finally of as it leads back to Time. 

Anyway, really great stuff! You've created a very captivating environment.

SUPER! Title and leaves are truly superb so as everything else.

This is fantastic! Great colors. My only critique is that I feel like the color transitions on the tree on the left are a bit choppier than the rest of the piece, specifically between the darkest two colors. But there is really not much to critique here at all!
