Crafty Pixel, that looks great!
Well, I have the beginning of my awful entry. I am aiming for a more cartoony style than I normally do.
Edit: Replaced old one with current one:

What about drawing and elf like Galadriel or Arwen from Lord of the Rings and make the elf significantly taller than the dwarf

I would kill someone to be able to pixelise like that !

@Lehmure: The dog is cartoon , the bunny is not, the head of the bunny is separated from the body! Good luck!
*don't hit me, please!*
@NixMillenium: good idea, thank you!

Much appreciated.

much ^ great improve mrmo. 

Also craftypixel, your entry is fantastic!

Here's my WIP. All critiques welcome. The checkerboard and plain background is just a filler.


Posted By: jalonso

@Etherric_Shock, the plain BG helps not overpower the mouse. Consider being very subtle with the BG and perhaps lighter so you are using more of the vibrant shades in your palette instead of the gloomier shades ;)
 
ps: Too many colors. 1 red ramp 3 colors, 1 blue 3 colors, 1 green 2 colors, 1 brown/oragne 5 colors

Thanks. I'm not sure why, but I tend to stay on the darker side.

Looking great Mrmo, but what's with all the redundant colors and hysterical noise (hidden) in the bg?

Whoa, those are some awesome colors!

I was doing colour correction which apparently made the background noisy as hell (like, 4 similar ones) O_O
Fixed now :D


Posted By: Etheric_Shock
Date Posted: 29 March 2013 at 8:07pm
How's this? Reduced the colors, changed the checkerboard to a solid color and fixed up a few misplaced lines.


Posted By: Etheric_Shock
Date Posted: 29 March 2013 at 11:31pm
Almost finished.

Now that I see it, the dark shades are an eye sore. Sorry.
