Nice background, Cassiebsg! I like both versions, although I probably prefer the first one -- in the second, some details get lost.

Couldn't decide on something to make for this, so I went with an older idea I had for an avatar.

I just had to give two to Creamy, because the piece is so lovely :). Reminds me of the upcoming indie game, Dordogne.

Creamy: Looks incredibly idyllic - perfect place for a picnic. A picture I would put on my wall. I don't like this style for in-game staff, though, to be honest. It's possible to have characters and sprites fit in, but more often then not they just stand out.

Mouth for war: I could imagine that very well for a vimiscal children's game. I'm reminded of Pokemon, not necessarily style-wise, more from the general vibe and atmosphere.

Cassiebsg: Honestly, I prefer your second version. The few pixels on the right side of the roof, where some of the sky shines through are slightly distracting.

milkanannan & son: Cute. I'm reminded of an old children's book I had with fairy tales, where one was about Cockaigne and the illustration was somewhat similar to your background. I tried to find the book (probably at my parent's) or the picture online, but I couldn't.

Pogwizd: I can't say why, but this background seems to created most of a distinct atmosphere for me - somehow desolate and hopeful at the same time.

Jack: I love the idea. The light shining through the cracks looks great. I only think the picture is all in all too dark. The light/darkness contrast would still be there with an all in all lighter image.

Concept: Jack. What's going on with this barn?

Playability: Cassie. Very practical and good-looking. The flowers and the trees are a bit too samey for my taste. Maybe you could turn them in different directions?

Artistic execution: Mouth for war. Neat and detailed. The wooden roof is a little strange. The character reminds me of the kid from Gorillaz :cheesy:

Sinitrena: nice composition but whatever post-treatment you used serves your picture badly IMO.

Milkanannan & son: that's a horny house.

Pogwizd: cute minimalist piece. I seem to discern a knight statue and vines between the buildings. It's hard to tell at such a low resolution.
