Really gorgeous pixel art! Brings back memories of the good old 16 bit Amiga years :-)

Well hello there, h4tt3n. Nice to see you around here =D
Indeed, it remainds me a lot of Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, and the look of the girl with the coconut crab has some scent of Terra, of FFVI fame, no? ;)

Thank you kindly h4tt3n. I was born just before those came out, but I have great respect and admiration for those days.

Indiana Jones FOA was probably my favorite game growing up. To be compared is maybe too flattering. ;) But I have to say, I don't only love pixel art for the nostalgia. Even before I was into pixel art I did some cross-stitching with my mom as a kid, which is basically pixel-thread-art, if you will. This is one reason I don't believe pixel art will ever die; it is a kind of art form, building with little blocks of color, using just enough detail to fire the imagination, without anything extra. The limitations force creativity and the result is something hard-earned, there aren't many shortcuts, and it's a clean and precise result if done right.

I'm still learning, but I really enjoy doing it, thank you both for your feedback. 8]
