Bit of an experiment using game-style assets to make a scene. That is, one that isn't blatantly reusing tiles.

EDIT: All right, anyone can use this for their game, just credit me for it! If your game is a commercial project, please contact me if you plan to use this art. Thanks and enjoy!

Scene is catching my eyes on mountains, which are truly great shaded. Big plus here.
The idea of this background wasn't really genuine. Unfortunately, I think there is something missing in sky (flying objects, or birds).
The technique you used here is really impressive. Good AA on mountains, sharp shades on leaves. You did well job on depth and color picks. At first sight, I wasn't able to see any copy-paste elements. Excellently placed all parts of image.
Image as whole got a nice impact. Does roundy sky an intentional part? Imo without that, it won't be same. Round sky affected my to focus on center. Harmony captured well, when you decide to do symetrical image.
What do you think?

Wow, this is lovely! I really like the shapes of clouds in the various shades in the sky, and the detail on the mountains and leaves is excellent! I love the puffy look of the clouds and the overall vibrance of the scene. Lovely!

The colours remind me of Chasm (which is a win). Beautiful pixel!

Chasm is my favorite thing. Simply fantastic.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and there'd be nothing bad about it, but this piece seems inspired by Slym, or Tony Redmer (same person). Definitely interested to know!

Tony Redmer is a huge, huge inspiration to me! His work brings a creative and different perspective of pixel art that's great to use as a springboard into personal creativity. Really a great influence, and I've learnt a lot just from looking at his artwork. Thanks for noticing!

This is lovely :( I love the trees. And the everything. But especially the trees. It's really impressive that you got the sky at that angle too.
