I have 30 colours for my peice at the moment *excluding transparancy, because i'm not going to use transparancy* i need 3 or more colours for my rain. Rain is very difficult to get colours for.

I'm going to do another one of my http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/20180.htm - square - http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/20006.htm - experiments for this challenge.  It's going to be in http://www.pixeljoint.com/pixelart/21958.htm - this style but with more colors and more depth. 
 
But instead of blue it's going to be brown.  Can anyone say "Chocolate Rain"?

Looks like a top down view of the pool but a side view of the character.  I'd pick one or the other.

Don't use NPA text, especially with that ugly-as-heck automatic subpixel antialiasing. That sort of thing is all well and good for screen fonts but it looks terrible anywhere near PA.

The drop will drip, and there'll be rain in the background. Not to mention setting colours, adding details, reflections and all that.

my first challenge entry ^^;
inspiration came from a WoW screenshot I took in Thunder Bluff while it was raining.
still need to add the rain.

Usually wooden decks aren't cut into smaller pieces like that.  They would run across a large span of the deck. And each piece wouldn't be a different color of wood.   http://www.arthurspools.com/pools/wpe5B.jpg - Check out this picture to see what I'm getting at. 
 
I see you gone with a top-down view by removing the person.  Now you have to fix the perspective of the pool to match that. (i.e. You probably wouldn't see the inner edge of the pool at all in a direct top down view.)  


-------------
And now for something completely different...


Posted By: volcom
Date Posted: 21 August 2007 at 4:24pm
thanks for the wood tips...so all light and dark long wood pieces across the deck...alright. we'll im not putting my person back in cuz it looks bad anyways so im not gona change the pool.


Posted By: Kfuchoin
Date Posted: 21 August 2007 at 4:26pm
also the stairs if they're going down.. would go darker at the bottom..., if they're going up.. going lighter..

Looks great. I question the fact that you have enough patience to make clouds like that... Ha.


Posted By: AdamPlays
Date Posted: 21 August 2007 at 8:55pm
@collected - I think this is really great as is - it looks like a pencil drawing. But I would just LOVE to see it in color.  *prod*prod*
 
@volcon - That looks so much better and cleaner, don't you think?  Also take kfuchoin's crit into consideration, i think it's a good one.  Another thing you may want to consider, the base of the house appears to be flat against the ground, like it's flooring.  The perspective on this would be from a top view, http://www.notesfromhollywood.com/images/AtTheShangri-LaHotelBangkok033.JPG - like this; if that is the perspective you intend.  Good progress though.

Now it just needs some details so it doesn't look like a big block of wood.  If you use the stairs, you could add railing on both sides.  The rain will be a challenge here.  Make sure it splashes in the pool.

Update:

Top part done.
Still needs:
-bottom half of branch (currently red/blue)
-raindrop (light grey area)
-background rain
-animation
 
Even with a photograph for example and colours, this is taking forever to make. Over 15 hrs so far.

i know it looks bad and if you look closely you can see small spalshes in the pool which i obviously have the fix. The rain looks horrible, every color i try looks bad and i don't know how to place it...any tips?

dude try to make your own.,. =/ ig ave you an example.. edits are for you to get an idea.. and try to make something similar
-don't make the wood too dark..
-the black diether is for adding an extra shade without using another color), just use it as if it was another color...
-You could add a darer shade to the border of the pool
-well i had experience at design before and started with small things (started at 14.. and i'm actually 14),  so i have to say no i didn't suck.. you can look at my DA.. my work was aceptable..

@ Collected, you should remove 3 colors since a max of 32 colors is allowed. Its quite a lovely pic.
