After the rest of the world had sunk beneath the waters, a single crowded island remained.

For the "Final Forestry" challenge

edit: The computers I'm using display the colors much differently, so I adjusted the palette for both monitors. Here are those two images. Gallery version is an attempt at a happy medium.

 My god that's stunning.

Grats on the triple win! I've seen the three and they're all great!

inphy (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/17/2011 10:51

Congrats on the triple win! All three are great, but something about this one.. a tight cluster of foliage and trees just feels cozy somehow.

Yair (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/9/2011 03:20

Remarkable, I wish I could do the same.

Gabriel101 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/8/2011 13:44

 Good ;D

Lovely trees

EdJr (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/6/2011 12:09

 Interesting color use. The water looks awfully rough though. Also I like the purple in the trees, it's neat.

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 1/5/2011 12:24

Pixel power! I like.

The Fry Bat (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/5/2011 11:59

Way to stick it to everyone who had gripes about the restrictions.

Ergg (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/5/2011 11:40

 Impressive. Particulary about the design of the island.

KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 1/5/2011 08:53

Beautiful, but the purple in the trees is distraction/odd. This reminds me of the film: Totoro, which I saw on TV few days back. Also, there could be a little more clouds up in the sky. If not, then atleast move the clouds upper. Great art!

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/5/2011 07:33

Great piece!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/5/2011 03:13

I prefer this version too. The edit feels a little too in your face, however the vibrancy is very nice.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/5/2011 03:11

 Love either one. The linked image fits your description better.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/5/2011 02:20

I love it.

r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/4/2011 07:14

I prefer this version, but I think the version you linked to might be closer to what you describe.  Though I think something between the two would work the best.  In the linked to version I feel that every think is too saturated, and its a bit much.  However it is more interesting with the use of reds in the shadows rather than purples.  I think if you made the darker areas in the version posted on here more saturated and reder and leave the light areas as they are it would be interesting.

manxana (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/4/2011 06:57

nice depth on the tree, stand out a lot.

I do feel the sky and clouds flattens the image, the tree is nicely executed but that thing bothers me, of course that's just personal.

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/4/2011 05:20

You nailed it.

I prefer this version, but the updated version agrees with your description: warm tones are nice for sure, but the sky and sea are too garish.

jeremy (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/4/2011 04:43

The orange is orange and the dark red is crimson in the updated palette, but the warm purple is brown (#b54c12, #591703 and #7a302d respectively) I think that #454506 is a bit too highly contrasted; #54631a in the gallery piece is better imo.

All hex codes aside, this is great! I love the way that you managed to get such a range of foliage colours in there :)

lasttea999 (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/4/2011 03:38

 Yes, the colors of the one currently in the gallery look more faded.

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 1/4/2011 03:14

very nice effect,i like it!  

iamlowlikeyou (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/4/2011 02:49

Really nice with the "flat" colors. I like it a lot :)
