Fall Feelings by EternalxRequiem Fall Feelings by EternalxRequiem
This is for :iconpixels-unlimited: Fall Celebrations Contest. This is the first thing I've made since my laptop, photoshop and flash drive all decided to play nice with each other. :la:

It's Autumn finally and today it actually felt nice considering the humidity was low for the first time in a long while. That's reason enough to celebrate! :happybounce:

The emote isn't really celebrating in the sense of jumping up and down in the leaves or the like. When I thought about the theme I kept envisioning a scene sprouting from a story book and perhaps emotes sitting around reading the story of Autumn, but it sort of turned into what it is now with just one emote relaxing under a tree enjoying the fall weather in a storybook setting.

I wanted to try my hand at a sort of minimalistic approach to shading and I'm mostly happy with the top part of the tree. I also wanted to try to use a limited color palette. I ended up using 21 colors though. :facepalm: I'm just trying to find my own shading style and technique that I'm happy with. I'll get there. :aww: Until then it's a lot of experimenting.

Wow, this is beautiful. ;u;
Even with just a few colours, they all look wonderful next to each other. I love the muted green of the grass against the pale golds and yellows of the setting sun; the sky looks really good and the colours themselves just look really cute to me. c:
I also love the little sideways smile on the emote's face is really cute too, even if it's hard to see, but that's alright, because most pixel art looks best this size.
The shading is really well done as well, especially on the leaves and the bark of the tree. It makes it look almost realistic while still giving the picture a cartoony edge.
All in all, I say your work paid off, and you did a very, very nice job on this. Also, I bow down to you, for I could never achieve this level of pixel art. xD
Congratulations on the DD, you deserve it! ;u; <3

It's always a good thing for the artist to like the artwork. It always shows, and it makes it that much better. I'm just so amazed at how adorable the little emote is. xD
