Hit a bit of a roadblock on this, and have been very busy, so uploading it for now.

Some background on this:

Its a mockup of the first level in a game I've been working on in my spare time. Its the ruins of a modern city, the character starts here, and looks for the person responsible for destroying it.

The two characters displayed are just goons, and are mostly just there for scale, I decided to go with larger and more realistic proportions, instead of the really SD style I had going at first.

Using many layers, they would be scrolling at different speeds in the game. Each layer is made up of 32x32 tiles. 

Also, I should note, this is very influenced by henk, right down to the angled floors

If this was a multiplayer game, I would like it.

This is great, however I agree on it being too dark. I also agree with Manupix, the buildings in the background should be viewed straight from the front. I'm hoping that the shadows from the characters will be transparant/dithered later on and following the slopes. Keep it up!

Edit: wth "capture the red fatass" XD

Great technique! I would suggest finding a way to enhance the depth. You could provide the illusion of distance by making the level of detail lower in the distant background layers. Right now, the farthest buildings have the smallest windows, resulting in high contrast that fights for the viewer's attention. I would love to see this game in action!

Nice texture, but the characters blend in too much with the background.  Bump up the contrast between the player and cars!

Great, but I see 3 independent parts: foreground with cars, bg buildings, and sprites. All excellent, but don't fit well, color- and contrast- and perspective-wise.

Great mockup. I especially like the background but the shadows are too dark though.
