Whew. Took me all week to do this. I've gotten critique thrown at me from all ends, MFGG, Pixelation, etc, and I've tried to take it all into consideration while making this.
It's essentially a mushroom house high in the sky- something I doodled at school the other day. I decided to pixel it, and do my best AND use my best technique and try out several dithering patterns, as well as texture. This is the result, I hope you like it!

Here's a WIP animation for those interested! http://i341.photobucket.com/albums/o363/SpriterDex/TMIMHWIP.gif

I thank ya' all for the nice comments and critique. This was really fun to make, and I'm glad you all liked it!

Nice job, solid technique.  Could use improvement, but at a very high level already.

You know, I kind of agree with Badass bill. The nly real flaw is the mushroom top. Aside from thats its quite good; I particularly like the coloring and style.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/5/2008 13:23
Well, sometimes I would have done that, but this time I was just trying to see what I could do with a lesser amount of colors. Thanks, though!

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 9/5/2008 04:43
To be honest I think you should have thrown colour conservation out the window and just used as much as the piece required. The stem and clouds are Great, it's just those tops that are letting it down.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/3/2008 14:35
Once again, thanks everyone!

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/3/2008 12:55
Lovely style! I love the bubbly, cloudy style you used for the mushrooms and background!

Fruit (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/3/2008 07:01
yeeeh!! i love mushrooms! It's great pixels   !

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/2/2008 19:54
Oh man that's cool. Everyone does that at some point. You start AAing something and then somehow just do all the edges instead of the sections that need it.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/2/2008 19:51

Sorry. And thanks for the comment and the tip. :]

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/2/2008 16:08
A great job!
For future projects and just as general knowledge tips go.
45 degree lines never get AA in pixelart. This is considered weak/poor pixelling.

The texturing is pretty nice. Hard to pick my gavourite between this and your tree piece.

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 9/2/2008 13:22
Thanks everyone :]

Those clouds are awesome! Luv it!

Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 9/2/2008 00:37
Hey bro wow thats awesome

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/1/2008 16:26
I don't like those 45 degree lines in the outline of the mushroom. Otherwise I like it.

Guss (Level 1 Private) @ 9/1/2008 12:54

blech.. at the little blue flower

but the rest seems fine to me

This took way too damn long to finish, Dex.

Good job though.
