A little splash art I've been working on, it's meant to be displayed on a dark background, hence the lack of transparency. I had originally intended more to it, with foilage and such for a background(which is why the rock itself is small compared to the cave entrance) but there's never enough time.

The colors were color-picked from game tiles, and not my choice. Maybe when I get some free time I will come back and refine the rocks, do the bushes and such for fun, but time played a major factor in this. However I will note the design was meant to be cartoony and stylistic. While I never referenced it, I did always have this in my mind initially:

Excellent work overall, though some more polishing/etc. would make it a truly great piece.

It is really well pixeled and the forms look very refined. I espacially like the shadows in the cave, the sign and the awesome perspective.

There is somehting about the colours I don like though. They seem to be dull and unsaturated. I miss some harmony in the overall palette.

I did a quick palette change. I hope you don't mind. :)

Works better for me.
