Pixel Art Challenge: Fairy Tales.

Skurugata is a rather special place close to my home town Eksjo, Sweden. Its known to be the home of trolls and thieves around the area, and thus has a number of storys around it.

One of these tales, I actually fond translated to English, The Trolls of Skurugata! So I based this piece of a scene within this particular tale. Do read it to. URL:

The pallet was a real challenge, as I have never used a prefixed pallet before. Big reason why i actually wanted to do something for this one. Also, I really wanted it to be on one of my own countrys local folk tales, as i find them very charming and also to make the outcome more unpredictable.

Also, for those who want to know more what Skurugata is:
(also show a nice pic, although i had my own photos for reference)

I really like how you entered a piece based on a tale from your country- it makes this all the more unique and amazing. Good work.

Thats pretty cool,i see what you mean by ''attracting atention to a more consentrated areas''with  the notasable blood and eyes in the clifside hole.

 Alltho, I feelt that the red, beeing one of the strongest colors in the pallet I really did not want to over use it. And rather use its way of attracting atention to a more consentrated areas to make the effect of the scene more inpactfull.
