Another Background for the game Planet Centauri, the most difficult and time consuming so far, but it's also my favorite

These are the other ones that i've done:

-> Grass Mountains
Has 13 colors (actually 15, but there are 2 unwanted colors that will fix when I have patience for that x_x)

flat stone isn't actually flat, so you can experiment with some low-contrast forms/cracks to give it subtle volume

reguarding texturing a stone- its a funny truith that something so simple is actually pretty complicated.

The thing I love so much about this piece is that even though you could add more details, in its current form, it is very polished. I would love to see more pieces with this kind of style. Where most of the colors are blocked in, but all the edges, and seperations are very well thought out and executed.

Thank you for all the praise and criticism,  I could refine it more, but I don't know how texture a flat stone x_x. The lava I did only 3 frames because otherwise would have to do 8, and it would give too much work @_@

TBH this looks rough...

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 1/22/2015 22:22

I can understand considering the scale, it was hard to render all of it. You did fairly good here considering, although this would look sweet fully rendered.

It looks a little too liquid for lava. Maybe slowing it down would help?

Ego (Level 6 Commander) @ 1/21/2015 16:14

Your recent pieces remind me a lot of philippejugnet, in style at least. There's a roughness to your cluster edges, but it doesn't stick and out and the general painterly aesthetic of it is really strong. Great work, you're one of those artists I'm keeping a close eye on ;)

Some of the rocks aren't finished :(

adscomics (Level 4 Murderer) @ 1/21/2015 07:55

I really like the lack of dithering in it. It gives it an interesting look. Especially the lava animation. That really adds to it

Ysayde (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/20/2015 23:39

I love your large background/landscapes.

Splurge (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 1/20/2015 11:06

Seemingly simple yet very effective. Picking up some lighting techniques, thank you.

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/20/2015 09:56

Nice animation !!

BathMaster_2000 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/20/2015 09:34

The wide, paintbrush-like brush for this piece is really good. Nice job.
