I like the dithered clouds. I don't know, Cure, this says 'finished' to me.

wow ;D! This forum has the best pixel-artists on the whole damn planet! Oh my God :o!
Great work with this, Cure! The water is awesome, the sky amazing, and the lightning is also really well done. My only suggestion is to do something with the Kraken... if you look closely it looks a bit... blank.
Apart from that, great ;D!

I love the detail on the water. Well done. Should the sky be darker?
Modern artists are told that they must create something totally original-or risk being called "derivative".They've been indoctrinated with the concept that bad=good.The effect is always the same: Meaningless primitivism

i'm gonna have to agree with helm (that makes twice today i have agreed with him, a record).  i dont think you could really do much more to it without possibly overdoing it

Probably a waste of a comment at this point, but I agree with Helm and Ensel (and was actually going to voice this same thought earlier, but I'm lazy :P). You can keep working this, but you are at the point where it's borderline overdone/too busy/whatever and adding even ONE MORE PIXEL puts you at risk of blowing the whole thing. Not that it is overdone; not by any means. In fact, it's quite spectaculicious at the moment ;D

I suppose its settled then.  Three of the artists I respect the most have came to a consensus.  I hereby declare this piece finished.

And now this will be locked and moved to a new showcase forum which will exist for all eternity.
