One of the most beautiful color palette which I've seen in pixel art. Amazing!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/23/2013 00:40

 fantastic work

EvilEagles (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/5/2013 21:19

 Really, really loving the background. Learning material right there for me. Thanks a ton sir.

johanvinet (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/26/2012 12:36

 Wow ! Great background !

carrion (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/3/2012 05:20

 Excelent execution! Theme is also something i have to try some time. Actually I even have a pic like this in mind but I'll want to do it with Commodore +4 colors palette.

Keep pixeling!

Danori (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 7/5/2012 21:14

 The use of complimentary colors is perfect. Well done!

Spiritios (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/7/2012 07:21

Looks fantastic! Especially like the trees and grass!

Zizka (Level 10 Deep Blue) @ 4/4/2012 06:17

 Wow, damn those trees... awesome. 

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 4/3/2012 03:34

Very nice indeed!


ThePixelKnight (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/3/2012 03:25

Amazing work as always Fool ;)

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/2/2012 14:42

Awesome job... lovely colors, fantastic texture... so amazing! ;)

MrBeast (Level 3 Dryad) @ 4/2/2012 09:31

Feels too dark for Fool, he doesn't use much saturation but the colors are usually way more comic like (and the characters too, this is too serious ;) )

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 King Checker) @ 4/2/2012 06:53



Jetrel (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/1/2012 23:40

 Some je ne sais quoi doesn't quite feel like fool's work, in this, but I almost sorta prefer the difference.  Lots of genuinely innovative solutions to stuff, here.  (Plus, I won't lie, I'm gay for some good foliage any day of the week. :P )


dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 4/1/2012 09:30

You're one of my favorites for sure as well. Keep them coming!

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/1/2012 05:54

This looks amazing! Fool or not fool, you are one of the greatest artists here!

HotDog (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/31/2012 20:58


st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) @ 3/31/2012 15:48

umm yes. these are absolutely not fool-like colors at all, but i completely dont care, because the values, themes and shapes are spot on. i think this is my favorite piece so far. color me inspired to want to enter this challenge, but i doubt i have proper time to make an entry worthy of competition.

Neela (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 3/31/2012 14:23

Very Fool'ish piece of work! Nice :-) 

Delicious (Level 10 Capo) @ 3/31/2012 14:22

 Just echo'ing what JuninFC wrote - You're one of the fastest improving artists on this site for sure.

Keep rockin'!

JuninFC (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/31/2012 13:07

since I joined this site so far you progressed further. You went from one common artist to one of the best here, congratulations.

And the work is great

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 3/31/2012 12:52

 To clarify my comment, fool doesn't tend to use saturated colors as his shadow tones. Another thing is that with his colors it is very obvious what they are meant to be. Your grass in this case needs to be much greener for it to get closer to fools style. 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/31/2012 12:39

 Colors aren't similar to fool because he havent done trees this color! I am sure if he did it would look too similar ;)

slym (Level 8 Ruby) @ 3/31/2012 12:18

 Palette doesn't feel similar to fools at all, but the textures and shapes definitely do. Awesome work!

TheoVision (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 3/31/2012 12:04

again, great piece!

CPearson (Level 4 Murderer) @ 3/31/2012 10:34

Absoloutely fucking beautiful. literally what went through my mind when I saw the preview, well done. Really great.

Faceless (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 3/31/2012 10:21

The palette is off, but otherwise you've done an admirable job of imitating his style.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/31/2012 09:58

 You are awesome ;) winner is here.

Christoballs (Level 7 Neanderthal) @ 3/31/2012 09:39

Quite a good try, but I think the contrast is too high on the character, especially the darker shades. You may notice that Fool's characters are vey readable on their background, so you could also change the background so that the character detaches himself from it.
The eyes could do with a sparkle, it's something I noticed Fool does. I think the path could do with more highlights, too.

Elastico-Gadget (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 3/31/2012 09:33

Really great !
