yes I realize what you were trying to do but i think you over did it. even if you desaturated it, it would still stand out. no disrespect man. oh and btw i like the rock wall

I love the sky and most everything else for the day side of this. That sky pattern is magnificent. For some reason the night side feels a little more awkward to me, her hair looks more like an afro in night than it did on the day part. The blood on the knife also feels a bit off to me; kinda sketchy. I dunno. Anyhow, my complaints are pretty minor, i love it =)

Ah, well, thanks for the comments. Firstly the red is supposed to distract. As in, stand out the most, its not mistake that it is so saturated and all the other colours are not! This is to emphasize the red eyes, the blood on the dagger and the roses. The Statue kills people at night and buries them nearby, but their graves do not appear during the day, instead you see a rose. (Chronologically, the statue goes out and kills everyone, thus the graves appear, and during the day time the graves do not appear, but the killings are still real because the authorities put a missing sign there) it's quite a meaningful image ;-P


sorry for that confusion, i understand if the red dosen't work well and if it dosen't make enough sense in this order ;D

 I agree with snowk, don't use pure red. Darker, little more brown in it. I'm not sure if it's a stray pixel or two near the "missing" sign, but the red there looks like a mistake. When you change the red, make those flowers in the distance a darker shade, if you have the palette space.

ok well i like it alot. the only thing is that the red is way too saturated compared to the rest and my eye has a hard time moving around the piece because of it. that is the only thing

i agree with winterace the day should switch side's with the night, it would make chronological order so to speak.

Ooooo, this thing freaked me out! I liked the pattern you used on the sky in the background. Here are some suggestions:

I think that if you placed the Day on the left and Night on the right, it would look better, but its good anyway. Also, I feel that the coloring on the Day woman (the lighter brown) is a bit awkward (my way of saying lighter). I think you should darken it. But I don't expect you to edit everything, I'm still learning the "tips and tricks" of pixel art myself.

Again, good job!
