The only thing I'd change would be the purple flower.  It needs a little bit more contrast because the purple and gray seem to have similar values.

Really nice work so far, it would look great in a game!

My only complaint is that either the bridge or the flowers are at a bad angle. The bottom tier of tiles seems more angled towards he player, while the top seems perfectly perpendicular to player view.

It can work either way, but you should pick one and stick to it as much as possible.

Great job so far, the colors are very vibrant and interesting. :y:

It all is in the same perspective to me ??? I guess when I add the sprite and all it will be more clear.

maybe have a bit more of a variable transition from light to dark on the wall, and bottom tiles? It looks a little flat compared to the top tiles atm- I like where this is going though!

Absolutely lovely. It is a bit surprising that the "supporting, background" rocks are lighter than the foreground rocky platform it supports, though. I don't know too much whether I'm in love with the minimalist design of the blue rocks just below the grass or whether they're crying for you to give them more volume, though.

Oh! My apologies, I guess I didn't look close enough. The flowers and rocks are behind the platform, where the bridge is simply part of the platform tile-wise. My mistake.
