Night of Marian's World Map. I started this a few months back, on and off, and today, well, I just happened to finish the rocks after a lot of times redoing them and I was on a roll! So I finished it!

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS SSSSS

Nothing can express the relief and awesomeness I'm feeling right now wooo hooo.

Big thanks to the following people for encouragement and tips:

:iconazraelee: for the rocks
:iconoceansdream: for the clock tower
:iconcelectis: for being there and fangasm-ing with me.

A floating island with FISTS! Wow. I guess it's the island's defense system?
As for the clock tower, I guess you have to fly or teleport there.
By the way, this is VideoWizard from (#)RMN.

*collapses from over loving of image* D: :D..
just, epic T_T
Multiply awesome with epic, then multiply that with chuck noris, and it's almost as good as this image.

The colors, the sky, the grass, the design of the buildings, and those gloves my goodness D;..
And the waterfall.
The rocks are unbelievable :D, however many times you had to re-do them, let it be known that the result is worth it D:..

Sorry but the overall style and quality of this image T-T, my heart flutters, lol.

The pixels are placed so perfectly to get just the right looking texture on each piece :3, the cement/brick feel of the clock tower is fabulous :3.


P.S...
I wouldn't want to fall down that waterfall, XD

The colors are very nice, there's some pretty good use of saturation, but... they also seem to be lacking vibrancy. They look /too/ pastel.

The water on the big island looks more like gel than water... I'm not sure how to fix that though, as I'm not very good at water myself ):

Something about the tower on the left looks really flat too. The clocks look... distorted.

The edges of the grass are generally wonderful, but the inside looks oddly flat. It seems like it needs a little something else. Maybe some slightly taller grass plants around the inside?

I see what you were trying to do with the sky, but it looks generally rushed-- like a bunch of random blobs and sketches, rather than the form of clouds and sky.


Overall, this is a WONDERFUL piece. The actual concept is very nice-- there are just a few flaws in execution that I believe are notable that could make it look even better. (:

Ok, let's see.

For the colors, I was aiming for a pastel look similar to a children's story book, so I will say I love the colors as they are since Mana is my greatest inspiration for picking palette :)

The water surely needs work but I got tired of working on it so it stayed like that XD

As for the clock, yeah I agree with that, but I'm not really good at making backgrounds so making this was a huge leap for me pixel-wise :) The sky is rushed as you said but I'll make a better one once the new concept has been done.

Thank you for taking time to critique, I really appreciate it and I hope to get more in the future :)
