i saw this on picksel joint, looks pretty and fabulous.

however, the fog around the base of that tower doesnt recede in compliance with the perspective. its lumps and bumps are of a similar size regardless of how far or near they may be and I'd say they rise too much at the back. The tower doesn't cast any shadow also.

Now what I hate is the fact that good looking and well presented art with a real purpose doesn't get as much credit as other rubbish art out there. For instance, you only have 71 people that actually favorited your art, however, I just looked at a horrible fan art that received over 200 favorites.

I love this piece! And you've actually spent the time to pick the right colors. My word of advice though would be to add an extra color in-between the shades to improve the fluency of the blend of colors on the tree, but this is marvelous! How long did this take you to make?

Again, this is one of those amazing pieces that I rarely get to see, where I actually have a hard time believing that this is was made pixel by pixel. Looking closer though, one can find only about 16 colors, clean, neat areas, nice usage of dithering and some fantastic anti-aliasing on the tree in the foreground. This pixel art really reminds me of "Tower of Heaven" and that is a good thing. A very good thing. :D
