I like this idea, and your color choice.
My only critique is that some of your eddges on the watch seem a little fuzzy to me.

You'll have to forgive me for two things.
First not being able to control my urge to make a your mum joke and secondly for my terrible attempt at wordplay.

edit: Also this is my first ever time attempting to AA, which was a bit of a challenge with just one extra shade.

Edit2: More seriously here's my initial sketchy line-art thingy.

I think the word you're going for is "flail" and it's looking good  I think you could probably reuse the brown on the ball. Perhaps for a background you could do something abstract, or have an arm holding it or something.

These all look great  (Everyone's using a similar third colour though T_T)
Igor, I'd say that you'll probably have to do a b/w outline to show definition from the bg.
 
Here's mine:

I think the similar color is due to the theme...old things seem frequently to be brown, or other 'neutral' colors, worn by age...

Sorry for the lack of originality, but this was the best I could think of at 12 am.  I'll work on it some more if I have time :).  The third color was taken from the NES palette since I've been using it lately and I thought it fit the scene well.

Did some more work to it, mainly cleaning up some dithering, adding some trees around the bottom of the mountain and a nice lake.  I think I'm pretty much done with this, and the most important part was I had fun working on it :).
 
 
I also made a quick animated car version.

This started as a work in progress

I was really annoyed by my over-use of dithering
then, after a while, it reminded me of old b&w prints
that specifically abused of dithering and I got to like it

The composition is also a bit typical, especially with
the cheesy candle lol

But for a first submission, I'm happy with it,
so I'll go with this one.

I hope I submitted it well, it's still waiting for approval,
we'll see.



Although I'm submitting it, I would be very happy to
hear your comments about it so that I won't do the
same mistakes twice :)

thanks

The only thing I would recommend is to make better use of your third color.  Right now you have a color that is only used on the paper and doesn't contrast very much from the other colors.  If you picked a different shade, something more yellow/orange, you could then use that color to shade the candle and serve as a midtone between the white and the black, reducing your need to dither so much.  I still think it looks quite good, though!

That's a piano yes. This is all about luminosity, not colour. Look how the light scatters. The brownish colour is brownish because, it gives the picture a good ambience. It could be a dull grey colour. And anyways it could be a broken old piano.

And how does the door look messy? Sorry, maybe I just got used to how it looks. It was intended to be so rough. Maybe it shouldn't be that much uneven? Or the shading on the lower part is messy? Thanx for the help!

Igor K. :
ha i was going to make the same exact subject, but i settled on an old man instead.
here are my suggestions:
make the smoke go in the other direction
from this vantage point it would be easy to animate a 3d scrolling clouds and ground too (and the steam of course too)
if you swap some of the dithering for solid lines it might feel more like a shiny steam engine (i think there's too much dithering)

you really need to rework those wheels if you want to make your animation credible. instead of using only two segments, each car should be animated acording to the flow of the train. and dont be afraid of using more frames.

it has potential, but needs far more work if you really want to make as it should be.
