The grass looks a but out of place, seems to have no texture at all and just looks like a but of green pixels on a block, but other than that it looks great!  ;D Looks a bit minecraft-y

This looks real good dude! I think you've done a good job. Although I'm a little unsure where the light source is coming from? The lighter areas seem quite central?

How did you learn to make this? I'm struggling with rocks myself
I'm new art Pixel art and I'm definitely up for meeting other pixel artists! so feel free to send me a message!

Hi Onepixel :)

Lovely piece, i was thinking about tilesets with as much volume as you got in this for my game.


I did a quick edit :



1/ i don't know if you selected your colors on purpose, but it feels a bit sad so i tried to contrast it to see if it enhances the volumes and try to 'brownize' it a little to stick with earth/rock colors. (that's a subjective view, unsaturated colors may work good if you plan on making a game with this kind of art direction)

2/ The two rocks highlighted by the red circles seem to be about to fall, is it on purpose ? If not you may try to avoid outlining them totally like they are right now so as to merge them with the rest of the rocks.

Good luck !

Looking good, I'd probably suggest just shading it to shadow on the bottom, more gradually, and tweaking the colours/values a bit. There's a few ways you could do this depending on the style you're going for.

Might help to add a bit of texture to the grass. As it is, it looks kind of like wet green paint draped across the top of those rocks.
PSA: use imgur
