I think the desaturation was a wrong step, the fifth tree's colors are better than the current. Well, I'd say at least up the saturation of the current one by 30~40%. The colors of the trunk could also use some changes, since they're not contrasting very well, specifically the highlight.

looks cute, but looking at real life trees, they're often way more straight than you'd expect them to be O:

yes i have sort of played around (like a one or two pixel bend/slant) but like it always comes out too harsh for my liking, so i tried to show some edges and shit through sub-pixeling (or at least what i like to call sub pixeling lol). and also if you look at the reference its very straight, and jad is right. but anyway i will try messing with the trunk a bit tonight/today, as brod suggested i should mess with the trunk too...

played with the saturation a bit (i.e. upping it) and messing with the trunk in tiny bouts. not much but still at least its something.

There's like one big floating leaf on the left side.

really sorry once again.. ive been running into trouble recently but thats no excuse for not finishing up pixel art!


i tried to make a transparent one (with no grey) but graphics gale didnt let me.. anyway i know it isnt much from last time but i really think its done and that theres no more i could do with it. i tried to make a background but it just didnt come out very good (it was like a blue sky with the tree on a hill..) but unless anyone else has any ideas i guess im done. im more posting this for just completing the threads sake too.. i hate leaving things unfinished (cause i always do :P) anyway, thanks a lot EVERYBODY who posted in this thread... made me feel liked haha and help me improve on my shitty ass tree a while of posts back.

You need to cut down the color count there, there are tons of unnecessary ones.

Erm, which ones? I don't think he can cut colors any more than he did brod. Besides, he didn't mention color count needs to be low for this project. I count 8 colors for the whole tree, that's pretty damn low already actually.
