Hi.  I really like what's going on here, and I'm excited about joining this site.  Here's a rough on the submission I'm doing for this week's challenge:
 
 
I'm not too excited about the way the fence looks right now, and I'm thinking I'll bring the moon back out more, and probably put more tree in the distance.  Apart from that things are pretty much roughed out. 
 
I'm not sure about the best way to go about integrating more of the yellow throughout, and I'm still kind of struggling through coloration for pixelart.
 
EDIT: Ok I put more of the moon back in, and cleaned up most of the background.  I'm still not 100% on the clouds, but that'll have to wait and see if I have more time after moving the penguins around.  I'm thinking there's going to need to be a few more tones of dithering in the ground (pebbles?), but I still have a few colors left.  Same for the brick wall.  Thoughts appreciated!

Thanx JinnDEvil, I love what you've done to your pic too. :)
Especially the panda. :))

I see loads of great works for this weeks challenge. :)

And Ray, I'd do the rhyno a bit bigger... :)

Moments - i think the moon is big enough though maybe the fence should be a wall?

Raytheon- You might want to think about showing a light source for your players, it's pretty focused on the table extending outwards; maybe there's a lamp there?  Also, I think you could have a few more tones to differentiate what's going on in the background-- The sides feel too large and black!
 
fucbillgates- Are you going to do more with the "zoo" sign?   I like the color a lot more in the new work; the animals are going to come back right?  Maybe at least one?

Tomic, the little tat is great :p
Moments, I really like the idea and colours to yours so far.

I'm giving this a go myself, seeing as it's been about 3 months since I did any pixel art..
