I have 30 colours for my peice at the moment *excluding transparancy, because i'm not going to use transparancy* i need 3 or more colours for my rain. Rain is very difficult to get colours for.

I'm going to do another one of my square-experiments for this challenge.  It's going to be in this style but with more colors and more depth. 
 
But instead of blue it's going to be brown.  Can anyone say "Chocolate Rain"? 
And now for something completely different...

Looks like a top down view of the pool but a side view of the character.  I'd pick one or the other.

Don't use NPA text, especially with that ugly-as-heck automatic subpixel antialiasing. That sort of thing is all well and good for screen fonts but it looks terrible anywhere near PA.

RPG is numberwang.

The drop will drip, and there'll be rain in the background. Not to mention setting colours, adding details, reflections and all that.

Usually wooden decks aren't cut into smaller pieces like that.  They would run across a large span of the deck. And each piece wouldn't be a different color of wood.  Check out this picture to see what I'm getting at. 
 
I see you gone with a top-down view by removing the person.  Now you have to fix the perspective of the pool to match that. (i.e. You probably wouldn't see the inner edge of the pool at all in a direct top down view.)  
And now for something completely different...

@collected - I think this is really great as is - it looks like a pencil drawing. But I would just LOVE to see it in color.  *prod*prod*
 
@volcon - That looks so much better and cleaner, don't you think?  Also take kfuchoin's crit into consideration, i think it's a good one.  Another thing you may want to consider, the base of the house appears to be flat against the ground, like it's flooring.  The perspective on this would be from a top view, like this; if that is the perspective you intend.  Good progress though.

And what I've been working on...

Now it just needs some details so it doesn't look like a big block of wood.  If you use the stairs, you could add railing on both sides.  The rain will be a challenge here.  Make sure it splashes in the pool.

Update:

Top part done.
Still needs:
-bottom half of branch (currently red/blue)
-raindrop (light grey area)
-background rain
-animation
 
Even with a photograph for example and colours, this is taking forever to make. Over 15 hrs so far.
