For this weeks challenge. :)

[EDIT] I've added a dithered graidient to the sky, skulls and bones at the base of the tree, mist below the tree line and a few spiked poles in the field. :)

[EDIT] The dithered graidient of the sky has been removed and I've improved the tree line. :)

[EDIT] I've tweaked the tree texture a little and added a few more twigs to the branches.

Heres how it looked like before the edits

 Spooky :O

lovely work :)

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/16/2012 12:47

unusual one.  

Nate K (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/9/2012 10:56

Congrats on 1st place ! I love the depth and atmosphere. Nice work.

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/9/2012 10:05

Now PERFECT! Incredible atmosphere in this one, congrats on your well deserved 1st place!

It was an uninspired piece, that i wasn't happy with, and i stopped because i was getting frustated and bored. I was going to finish it because i didn't want to give up, but i would have been more annoyed when comparing it to a wonder such as this. 

darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/31/2011 23:58

It looked great before and it keeps getting better...amazing, love that misty/foggy feeling.

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/31/2011 12:27

Impressive entry! That mist, man, that mist 0.o

Maybe the tree is over-aa-ed, branches should look crisp against the sky.


@ Connor: that's the worst reason for not entering a challenge. Time spent drawing is never wasted. You've got a whole day yet, just do it!

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/31/2011 01:41

 I'm glad i didn't finished my entry for this week and just gave up, would never have even come close to this, and i would feel even worse for the wasted time. lol


dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 12/30/2011 21:36

Ahhh.  Pixel mist.  You really pulled that off well.  In fact, I don't think I've seen it done any better.

Hiuru (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 12/30/2011 08:19

I really love the edits you made :) Although it was perfectly fine as it was before, the edits really do add more to the creepyness. Really awesome grass, btw!

Theoden (Level 8 Marshal) @ 12/30/2011 04:52

Great work, I love every single element in this piece. So gothic and moody :)

Based on the undithered sky in the preview I agree.. Looks cleaner.

This is a great piece of art though!

0xDB (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/29/2011 22:47

 Undithered sky was much better. :(

ellie-is (Level 8 Partner) @ 12/29/2011 20:46

 I think the gradient in the sky really harms the piece.

sasuke91 (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 12/29/2011 20:30

this is so cool :) and how did you pixel allll that grass :O

wuhu (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/29/2011 18:15

 Damn good man   

I like the sense of depth the textures on the ground give.

Lacaio123 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/29/2011 18:13

Muito belo

ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/29/2011 14:37

Thanks for the feedback everyone! :D

@ baah: Thanks for suggesting adding the fog it looks a lot better for it. :)

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/29/2011 14:03

 Love the colors.

baah (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 12/29/2011 13:04

Very nice one, with a well rendered scary ambiance!

Maybe the background could contain some fog, ie background tree not only in flat shadings... It would be even more frightening with a hooded skeleton. But it already is VERY GOOD!

ingl0rius (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/29/2011 13:03

 Wow. Faved! Good job

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 12/29/2011 12:21

Really nice

Rayovatron (Level 6 SWAT) @ 12/29/2011 11:21

 The branches looks really good!

lolyogurt (Level 3 Stalker) @ 12/29/2011 11:16

Excellent AA, and I'm impressed by the grass. Serious challenger :)

Lacaio123 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/29/2011 11:07

Very good men

0xDB (Level 5 Detective) @ 12/29/2011 11:05

I love the colors and textures in this one.
