I love flowing water and it was my old dream to make something like this. Finally I've made it in a form of a bg for a platformer.

Update 25.04: polished animation, added AA, tweaked little details.

sulamith (Level 1 Thug) at 7/31/2013 4:06:00 AM

This piece has been one of my favourities for a long time. 

Great work!

Sohei (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 5/1/2012 6:55:00 AM

Nowhere yet. I'm making it on my own, and it's in a state of planning, dreaming, drawing separate pieces, inventing, learning what I don't know.

Man, this is by far one of my favorite pixel works of late. Such beautiful atmosphere. Where can we learn more about the game? 

bobowitzbob (Level 4 Team Leader) at 4/28/2012 7:06:00 PM

This is great and I love it! Fav'd.

trough (Level 1 Seaman) at 4/27/2012 8:34:00 AM

 I love the colors of the trees against the sky.

TGK (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 4/26/2012 11:47:00 PM

 I wish the was something more random with the bird movement, like a twist at some point

mitchell547 (Level 4 Deputy) at 4/26/2012 10:19:00 AM

 The birds <3

Nether (Level 5 Captain) at 4/25/2012 10:55:00 PM

Holy moly, this is gorgeous! Loving all those little details and the flow of the water.

Losm (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 4/25/2012 5:53:00 PM

 I swear, he's adding these and editing the piece as we speak. 

reis (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 4/25/2012 10:15:00 AM

 Fantastic job. Your best of!

hahnt (Level 2 Quiet One) at 4/25/2012 10:04:00 AM

gotta say, i love platformers, and would love to play this, it looks like it would give a little bit of a challenge while having some amazing scenery to watch (distract you >_<) great work, and the water looks so beautiful!

Dark Matter (Level 1 Rookie) at 4/25/2012 8:52:00 AM

 @Losm - You missed the Triforce above the bush, the fish fossil in the cliff, the lizard outline (a bit like a Charmander?) near that, a spiral in a rock and lastly another username. And possibly something else.

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 4/25/2012 7:45:00 AM

I had the same Eclep ;)

Losm (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 4/24/2012 7:51:00 PM

 I see an eagle in the clouds, some sort of rodent-thingy in the bush, blinking, red eyes and your username. I'm sure there are tons more, but those are the ones I noticed.

Oh, and did I mention how AWESOME this looks?

snowk (Level 7 Mass Murderer) at 4/24/2012 5:27:00 PM

 I really like the water and the rocks, although I think you could refine the trees a bit more to make those blob-like shaps look more leaf-like. The colors are really dang good. 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) at 4/24/2012 12:37:00 PM

 ah, forgot to say, 5/5 obviously"!!!

eclep (Level 5 Detective) at 4/24/2012 9:51:00 AM

 Great piece! It reminds me of this animation

Voltali obscur (Level 9 Boss) at 4/24/2012 8:31:00 AM

I could almost hear the waterfalls sound. Beautiful work! 

PixelPuddle (Level 1 Jukyu) at 4/24/2012 7:27:00 AM

Incredible colors. Beautiful water animations.

mikemayday (Level 2 Hired Gun) at 4/24/2012 4:31:00 AM

I've set this as an animated wallpaper in my Win. Thanks for this beautiful piece!

TheManuz (Level 5 Killer Klown) at 4/24/2012 2:44:00 AM

 So sweet! I like the soft palette, looks relaxing and i think that sprites would really stand out over it!

ofcapl (Level 1 Rookie) at 4/24/2012 12:31:00 AM

 amazing! :D

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) at 4/23/2012 11:36:00 PM

Cool stuff! Nice eagle hidden ;).


Neela (Level 2 Flatfoot) at 4/23/2012 11:29:00 PM

st0ven (Level 2 Dealer) at 4/23/2012 7:27:00 PM

happip (Level 6 Serial Killer) at 4/23/2012 7:09:00 PM

Elastico-Gadget (Level 5 Rokkyu) at 4/23/2012 5:47:00 PM

Very inspiring. :)

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) at 4/23/2012 5:16:00 PM

This is just great man. Great use of colors!

jellybeanfish (Level 4 Button Man) at 4/23/2012 5:15:00 PM

 Absolutely gorgeous - love the simple fluffiness to the trees and the simplicity of the flowing water! I love the details like little bits of moss and vines.

slym (Level 8 Rear Admiral) at 4/23/2012 5:15:00 PM

 So beautiful :) Love the ambience of the piece. 

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) at 4/23/2012 4:45:00 PM

 every pixel artist have =) I coudnt quite understand the animal in the bush, it looks like its dancing

Sohei (Level 6 Yonkyu) at 4/23/2012 4:42:00 PM

You have sharp eyes. In the beginning I've been randomly blurting colours and the shapes occasionally turned into something. I though, it would be fun to keep them.

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) at 4/23/2012 4:28:00 PM

 is that a bird on the sky? a white giant one =)

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) at 4/23/2012 4:25:00 PM
