It's pretty small but i really like the look of this platform. It consists of 6 tiles since i want the player to walk in the middle (vertically) of the grass. I did this the pixel art way, using 4 green tints 3 rock tints and 3 purple'ish tints to fill up the darker areas between the rocks. I pretty much need 1 or 2 extra mid sections for some variation, then i will work on some walls. The background and character will be a pain though :S.

Nice job! Your color palette is pretty good, and overall it's pretty readable. That said, I feel like it might be a bit hard on the eyes due to how busy it is, especially the grass segments. Admittedly this might just be your game's art style, but I'd say the mix was a bit harsh.

As an experiment, I poked about with the image and extended the area covered by your midtones a bit. It's far from perfect, but I think it conveys what I'm saying in a sense.

I see what your getting at, but the grass looks a bit flat like that. I might experiment with it using a darker shade of green at the bottom.

no offense but this looks like crap. the original was way better and looked way more professional.

It was hardly meant to be a replacement - more like a 30 second demonstration of how one could make it less busy. Ideally the result would be that the TC would come back with his own edit.

Honestly I also think the original sprite is good enough and looks much better... In fact, I don't even know if it's really too busy. We'd need to see the entire environment to judge that - it's a matter of how well it contrasts against its surroundings.
