Steampunk House by *Cyangmou.
The suggester says: "Although this doesn't look like much from its thumb view, you can see just how much effort the artist put into this piece with all the details when in full size.
Just amazing." (

I think it maybe needed some more ehh... clocks. And maybe some more bronzes. Jeez, what an amazing piece of art and all I have to say are complaints.... i'm such a derp XD Amazing job, by the way!!!!!
hmm a clock. I think it would be really strange if each house would have a clock - in that case a church-clock would be rather senseless. Hmm but it's steampunk and it doesn't have to be realistic after all and that's just one house. Some other houses need definitely a other appearance. Nice ideas, you aren't a derp
If you are simple reducing the colors from a given picture you end with something strange which isn't pixel art and wouldn't reach that level of cleanness and sharpness. You start with choosing some basic tones, than you draw with them and if you need more colors you add each of them through picking by hand. At the end you maybe have some fine-tuning to do, to get the best out of your palette. Your palette and your piece develop over time.
