wow, that is really hot!

about the presumed perspective issue on the tree, keep in mind that not all trees stick perfectly straight up, and many gnarly ones lean to the side, so there could be no perspective issue with it at all. I personally think it looks fine.
I do think the end of the log could use some work, at the moment it doesn't read as an end of a log.

Yeah, the end of the log looks wierd. I think the roots should go up into the air instead of drooping like they're soggy.
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!
I completely disagree. The sprite as is has so much awesome it's massaging my eyecubes. 8 directions. Any less would be criminal.

You gonna add some other life? Not neccessarily enemies but maybe squirrels, birds, ambient life like that?
Ok, maybe one enemy.

I agree with alex about the tree, though. Looks fine as is.

Very pretty, reminds me of Sword of Mana.  Only critique is that the top left log, seems to be too bright?  It makes it look just a little out of place in my eyes.

Wow, that's amazing looking.  ;D

I think the only thing that seems off is the tree. I'm not sure if it's a matter of texture or values but it doesn't seem to pop enough to feel like it's a separate mass from the ground behind it.

Nothing serious, keep up the good work!

hot!  I think you could use one additional, darker shade to help pop out the tree and the fallen trunk.  I think the fallen trunk opening looks crumpled, or weird - the roots on the top of the log seem to be falling downward, instead of sticking up?  really great otherwise, inspirational - love the leaves!

The tree needs more bright leaves on top, I think.
Could be wrong.
