Looking very good man. You should do a graphical adventure out of this, I mean, like Monkey1 and 2.

Thanks buddo, sadly that would take an insane amount of time that I don't have since we collectively switched into the darkest timeline :p

here's today's progress, broken the symmetry a little and added more details :

The dark timeline took away your time? It gave me my time back, although that is not really a good thing.

Anyway, this thing looks rad, and works really well with your style! Is it going to be just the buildings and the plants we see now, or is it somehow going to be populated?

Really really cool, as always.
Love how you break symmetry with the weathering!

Because it wasn't big enough yet, haha! It does look cool though, this new perspective :)

What's going on with the lightsource? Why is the building brighter on both of its sides than the front, on the green part it seems to be the opposite? The intense highlights are a fun style but also confuse my sense of depth! And now the pavement is also brighter on its sides??

I'm not gonna lie, I have no idea what I'm doing, I'm just going with it, I agree that shading is all over the place, I hope this next iteration is little more coherent than the previous one :



basically I'm thinking of a reality breaking apart (not original I know), maybe I am using this as an excuse to do this upside down

Reality breaking apart is cool, but it the composition was much better without the bright spot at the bottom of the picture!

Thanks ! to be quite frank I have no idea what I am gonna put inside that hole besides clouds or a black void;



I noticed that now that I am approaching the end, it's getting far more harder to work on this piece, I can't seem to force myself do more than 64x64 pixels each day x)
