I might have gone a little overboard with the AA, not sure. Also.. colors.. how do they freakin' work? (updated colors) Critique welcome.
I have stumpled upon that channel before... probably should start going through the videos and doing some exercises based on them. Thanks for reminding me :)
I personally recommend watching the FZDSCHOOL tutorials on Youtube. They're directed at digital painting in photoshop, but all of the concepts (color, composition, contrast) apply to pixel art as well.
@failureboy: Hm.. I kind of like that tree from a overall composition standpoint. But since it's flawed anyways, maybe removing it would help... I'll experiment more with this picture when I find the time. Thanks.
Great! Reminds me of old Sierra adventure games.
I don't know of any tutorials other than simply surfing this site and copying the files I like.
For this piece, maybe if the tree on the right was way darker it would look better. Otherwise just get rid of it and expand that stylish red ground, maybe add a cliff or some more rocks. I think this might look even better if you widened it another 25% in fact.
@failureboy: Yeah, I know what you mean and I agree. But at my current skill level detailed trees would have looked way worse. I have a lot of trouble with plants in general... you don't happen to know a good plants/trees tutorial? Not just pixel art, but like at all. I feel that there is something important I'm missing for understanding how to draw realistic foliage that i haven't yet figured out by pracitce.
I personally find the trees in the foreground to be a bit distracting (especially on the right side). They are very big and plain compared to the rest of the piece.
The rest is great, though. My favorite is the red ground w/shadowed treeline.
Great clouds, motorcycle, rocks, pixel size details :)
I like this!
Thanks. The Thing is though, I didn't really set out to use these colors. When it comes to colors I just feel kind of lost.

Very good use of these difficult colors.
