been workin on this for the past couple of days, and i think its pretty much finished.  It's for a game project on a pretty tight deadline, so more mockups soon. Thanks to badassbill and david for critiques.

Woah, that's pretty pretty. :)

I dunno if you want critiques, since it's finished, but I think the tree is kind of... out of perspective. The leaves work, but the trunk seems to be, like, straight-on with the camera, almost. Besides that, the character is also super-tiny in comparison to the rest. If that's intentional, disregard that.

Yeah. Cool.  :B

thanks mccow.  The character size won't change, but can you show me what you would do to fix the perspective of the trunk? it looks ok to me.

Since I'm incredibly lazy, and the same issue has come up before, I'll just direct you toward's Jad's example:

Your color choice is excellent. The are so vibrant. The only problem I can see is the tree perspective which has already been expressed.

I agree with the trees but wow dude, you've really improved.  i'm in love with this piece of art!
I love the rocks too, very "helm-ish" looking. :D
Fantastic work, can't wait to see this finished.

freaking awesome... Kinda reminds me a bit of Secret of Mana 2, you should make the sprites more in that style to, would look wicked. Keep it up, rock on!
