When you feel like out of inspiration just go outside and let the nature take you under it's control :)

It was really hard to create an animation of waterfall. And, actually, I think I failed.  6 frames, 29 colors.

Based on the stock photo -

 I did not think very real, but the atmosphere, the animation and the colors were very nice, the pixel art itself was nice.

Looks like these paintings you can plug in (that emit light and animate)

nice waterfall

 Love the detail and vegetation, though the water seems static, like it's shaking in the same place. But if I half-close my eyes the water flows like a dream : ) Very nice work

Smooth water animation ^-^

The detail on the rocks and the wild life is amazing too, great work!

It reminds of one of those new IRL moving photographs.
I love how the water on the waterfall is bright, and sticks out to you.

lase_s5 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/16/2005 04:49
its inspired me already

Bachaka (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 9/15/2005 08:56

The water animation is great ! I love it.

Aiko (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 9/3/2005 11:39
 great shading, i like the contrast of the piece. the water animation is a bit jagged, unfortunately. but still, way better than anything i could do. it rocks

grymzy (Level 1 White Belt) @ 8/26/2005 06:56
The water doesn't really flow smooth, but it's better than anything I could ever do. And the trees look quite samey. Good work, nonetheless.

By the way, the tutorial on your site (pixelface) really helped me.

one of the most detailed gifs I've ever seen!

wow, I'm inpressed. That looks realistic! You have very much talent.

truth (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2005 09:04

THIS IS AMAZING. Don't know if you have the free time to do it, but I'd like to make some tiles and stuff for a new game, Secret of Manaish style graphics...I put together some beach tile already (an ocean and stuff) but the sand is not so great.

I already have some other stuff like grass too, but I really enjoy your style. Perhaps we could work together? Let me know if you will

I love your style. Beautiful and exactly what I am looking for. I do not care if you have repeated portions in this peace...a game using tiles indeed does repeat portions, and so your lack of diverse plants is not really a problem although more would be better :-)

I am very interested in cliffs, waterfalls, plants, and tropical type's the theme I am looking for, hopefully I can learn from you. God bless, love, Brian

 Great atmosphere, a few more frames would make the animation of the waterfall even better...

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 7/22/2005 17:02
 I love it, great job as always...

spiv (Level 4 Button Man) @ 7/22/2005 13:03
Amazing water-fall. Very nice colors. But grass is too same.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 7/22/2005 10:05

yeah, you pretty much failed dude...

Just kiddin'. Actually you did a wonderful job at the waterfall animation. Maybe just little more animation towards the bottom with more ripples would have made it complete.

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 7/22/2005 08:09

Sound advice.  I wish I had a spot like this around for inspiration. Interesting water effect with the small frame animation.
