In the original image I was going for a SNES feel with a stretched mode 7 style texture, but thought I'd just leave that version in the description. I know how particular PJ can be about that sort of thing.

With the mode 7 texture this is far better. Very good work :b

This is my favorite piece on Pixeljoint!

I would have liked to have seen some difference in pose between the two birds, the wings themselves seem out of proportion to each other, and I don't think the exaggerated curviness of the background clouds gels particularly well with the technique you've used on the midground clouds, but this is still very cool regardless.

 I think it's infinitely better with the... thingie. In the description.

we could try to create an actual real game with all pixeljoint member and pixelation, this way, it could be a great hommage to zelda ! :)

also, i'm not a coder...

You, bill, are BadAss!!

Amazing work on the clouds, only gripe I have with it that it feels so different from the rest of the artwork which is a lot crisper. Great work overall.

I wanna live in tiny sky loft.  Great vibrant piece.

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 2/16/2012 03:04

Gack, those clouds... 
I had to zoom to check if that was really pixel art ( no offense meant! ), such perfection... 

And the mode 7 just makes you want to play that on an old SNES... geeeh. 
Excellent work, obviously. 

Voldimars (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/16/2012 01:23

 so bright!

AG182 (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/15/2012 23:18

 Oh, gosh, these clouds... So picturesque!

If only this an actual SNES game... I would play the living daylight out of it.

Fantastic work Badassbill!
