 Based on the old mockup I did, kind of wanted to see how much I improved :)

-Used my new color palette that's still not finished since I only choose 3 complete (shadows/highlights) colors (red/green/blue)

This is pretty awesome jump from your old version :) 

clefairykid (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 10/10/2012 00:05

 Aw this is adorable, and it really inspires me to try something similar! ^^

Oziah (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/9/2012 13:58

 when is this game coming out?  I wanna play !!

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 10/9/2012 00:29

Mmmmm, dem clouds.

ellie-is (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/7/2012 12:29

This is beautiful, bro.

Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/7/2012 00:33

 I'm with Joe a bit here. I'd add a little more contrast to the foreground. Otherwise this is quite moody and charming.

Joe/Wrath Designs (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/6/2012 04:22

Very nice! I like the scene, but the colorchoice in the different layers of the background creates a somewhat flat sensation.

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 10/5/2012 11:20

Outline on the sword greatly increased readability!

And well, same comment as RedKnight, what I meant is that it looked flat. :)
If you don't want them to look to close, you could have the grass pop out down, instead of up, maybe?

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 10/5/2012 01:14

 ohhhh on this one I was planing to add that in the BG like the one next to barrel to left (except I'd add more of those, on the piece I was just showing one of each different objects I was thinking of putting in),

I didn't want the mockups to have too much alike since the colors are already same :)

RedKnight91 (Level 1 Seaman) @ 10/5/2012 00:54

 Your other piece is a perfect example of what I meant, 3D grass, with blades of grass popping out of the terrain! : )

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 10/5/2012 00:51

 @Ellian  I could do earth something like I've done on this piece perhaps? http://i.imgur.com/AuWQy.png

but since I posted the piece already in my gallery, I wanted them to differ xD


Added the outline to grass :)


Hopefully the full outline made the sword more readable :)

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 10/5/2012 00:49

 Thanks everybody :)

@Redknight91 I made a edit following your and Ellians critique, I'm not sure if I understood what was the issue with the grass, but I think it's same as Ellian stated? I fixed it (added outline) :)

The tree, I made the roundish silhouette on purpose, to make it less serious and realistic.. So I'm keeping the tree the way it is

showtime (Level 6 Made) @ 10/4/2012 20:10

Awesome clouds!  And the roundish silhouette of the tree doesn't bug me at all, but maybe that's just me.

Dennven (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2012 07:10

The tree looks spectacular, amazing.

ripatti (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/4/2012 06:48

i like it


RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 10/4/2012 02:49

Good touch up on the tree.

Ellian (Level 8 Partner) @ 10/4/2012 02:19

That's quite an improvement... looks lovely.

Although the earth looks slightly off compared to eveyrthing else, and the grass is the only thing in the whole piece that lacks an outline. Also, the sword is barely readable too.

Clouds are really wonderful, and the trunks of that tree is really well made.

RedKnight91 (Level 1 Seaman) @ 10/4/2012 02:07

 Awesome palette!!!! I love this, but some thing are bothering me!

The tree is awesome (expecially the trunk), but the outline of the leaves is too circled to be natural, a tree should have a silhouette made by the points of the leaves sticking out, like this http://cdn.planetminecraft.com/files/resource_media/screenshot/1218/Tree_2166149.jpg

Another thing is the ground. It looks good, but it's a bit flat, couldn't you add 1px to make the tallest blades of grass look more 3D-ish?

Jigxor (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/4/2012 00:59

Looks fantastic!

Dyl (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/4/2012 00:22

Awesome, looks much better!

Stava (Level 8 MS-DOS) @ 10/3/2012 23:38

 The styles are fairy different, only the idea and design are same.. 

I don't think the tree is pillow shaded, but it does need more work (it wasn't even finished when I posted it), I updated it with some corrections on the shape :)

_Connor (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/3/2012 20:25

I think the old palette suits the style more. The tree leaves appear to be pillow shaded. :\

RileyFiery (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 10/3/2012 19:26

I love those clouds so much. It's also a really nice improvement over the older version. Nice skill change you got there.
