Monkey In A Tree -- HL by halfliquid Monkey In A Tree -- HL by halfliquid
Sometimes you just have to get away from it all ...

Safari-like sunset in know-whos-where-exactly location. Basically had a lot of fun with shades and different colors meshing together. Really wanted to give it a "sunsetting-glow" kind of feel to it as well.

And, phew, bless that little monkey!

Hope that it's as enjoyable to you as it was for me spending some time making it.

:) (Smile)

while I am not the big fan of the pixel art, I must say that I totally admire that work. I am very impressed how you have managed to provide the feeling of the atmosphere in such a little piece.

Excellent pixel work, though the sunset looks like a heavily dithered JPG. I guess for pixel art that would look good though. =) (Smile)

The monkey looks neat, silhouette in front of the sky.

That cloud work is amazing. It's a good thing you didn't anti-alias them, since that would've hurt the contrast between then layers. The simple background is also very nice, since most people would've just left it flat, they manage to capture the jungle in the back with minimal detail. Great work.

Is that really drawn pixel by pixel? Because if it is, it's some mad ass work you have there! How the hell you come up with it without first having somekind of a sketch or plan?

Nice work! Thumbs Up
