 The mountains are flat, heh. You should add shading to it. Vary the hues when the shades gets lighter and darker. for the sleeves, that'll add some interesting colors. Good thing you've desaturated the colors :D. You should also use good contrast in terms of essential shading.

I feel like keeping it flat. Gives it a surreal, storybook feel to it(I hope). Or maybe somebody will come and slap me in the face for saying that.

For me, it's hue shifts vs. color conservation. I dunno. Maybe I'll get slapped(again) for saying that.

err... thanks. I'm not exactly new to pixel art, though, and reduced saturation in colors is probably considered standard practice.  ;)

If you keep the mountains flat, I would suggest a different colour that would blend it into the background more. Like, a dark blue or purple.
With the "sparkles" around his hand, adding some varying shades would enhance the effect. If you want to conserve colours, use some of the colours you used for the stars.
And maybe lighten up the second shade of blue a little bit.
