Ah... the jpg compression is still present in those pngs... did your tileset get saved as a jpg or something?  D:

Love the latest clouds. I wonder if they would look better with more shapes to build them from. Have you tried actual transparency? And a shadow layer below them might ground them (lol) into the scene.

There would be no transparency for sprites :(
Game is for Amiga OCS, 16 colours only. Pure assembler.
Graphics comes from simple html editor, just print screen.

That looks more like an ice texture than anything else, yeah. Clouds tend to be kind of puffy, even the longer reedier ones.
PSA: use imgur

Your PNGs still have JPG noise in them. What is your process for working on and saving your art that this happens? it's bizarre, and it's ruining what otherwise would probably be some good graphics!

These cloud shapes are better, though the interior shadows don't follow those stylised blocky shapes as well, and the blockiness doesn't always read as intentional. Try building the clouds out of squares and rectangles and rounding the corners only a little. The top part of the top right cloud has the most interesting stylization, everything else feels wishy-washy. This could be a cool style, but you have to commit to it if you want it to work.

I like the  graphic but Jpg has ruined clean image quality...  You should find the original and save it as Png.  Its very hard to edit when you have Jpg quality..

If you're on Windows, a program that comes with the OS called Snipping Tool will let you grab a window or region to your clipboard. Then you can paste into imgur to upload. Alternatively, you could use Gyazo, which has a taskbar shortcut for region selection, and it uploads it automatically after one drag of the mouse. Both of these options will give you a lossless image saved as png.

The clouds don't have JPG compression so what I think is happening is OP saved his original work as JPG, and has been working on that same file since, and the JPG artifacts are part of the original now, so it's no longer an issue of saving (he's got that down now), but rather an issue of the original being ruined and it needs to be redone.
