I like it, it has a lot of character. i only notice 3 real things, all of them very minor:

1) the speed of the clouds, clouds are very slow moving, so the high speed they travel up creates a sped-up effect
2) the angles of the moon and clouds, it isn't a huge deal but it contrasts with the generally smooth line work of the foreground
3) the effect around the moon is not pixel art by strict standers (it seems like a computer generated effect)

all of these things are more preferences, than anything, tho. as a piece this functions well

I'd try adding some sway to those trees and slow down the cloud scroll a bit, if the wind's that high there'd be at least a bit of tilt on that canopy.

Wouldn't be too hard to implement either, just a bit of move-tooling here and there.

The animation thread technically doesn't need to feature anything pixel art related, just animation related.

There is one tree that is floating in the air in the foreground layer, and another one in the last tree line ;)

Oh, didn't realize. Either way I thought they should be aware, in case they wanted to post to Pixeljoint or something. I don't mind the effect myself :)
