It looks lovely, but there should be a faint reflection of it in the water.
You don't see that sort of thing in real life, especially not from that distance.

Also it has to do with the daylight (where the sun is located) if it has a reflection or not.
I think the island has everything we have looked for. It has the Sonic 2 pastel colors, and has the atmospheric distance done correctly (uses bluish colors instead of a blurred image). Just a perfect job Mr. CornetTheory!
I just wanted the ftp or email because I generally don't post sources publicly, but if I'm expected to, that's no problem.
,,,I think that's almost perfect as it is.
A good example that it's possible to make something look awesome while not adding stuff that wasn't there. Great work.
EDIT: Do you think you could give a try at the eroded mountains in Emerald Hill's background?
...so that image, scaled up 4 times, and tiled? or do you want the whole BG?
No need for that ICE,
EHZ Level Art creation is almost done.
Flare is developing the BG at the moment and we don't need duplicate works! :v:
This will be the last validation for you CornetTheory:
The image is already at 4X with the correct colour scheme.
do the background mountains need to be tiled like that, or the clouds for that matter?
Our engine renders and arranges single cells of 64X64 put together into Metablocks.
For now do not matter about tiles, just go by the best result you have in your own creativity. ^^

The title screen picture is from miles away over open ocean.
He has a point. It's not necessarily the case that you'd see a reflection.
Yeah, but the original had a reflection. Shouldn't the HD version follow suit?
Used Google picture search (can't be simpler than that):
Where is the reflection?
Oh, is this for the title screen?
Disregard, then. I thought it was to do with the EHZ background.
It lacks the sparkles, otherwise it's made of win and awesome.
Maybe the sparkles are added by the engine later?
^ I think they would need to be done separately for the actual game.
Here is Hill top, this took me longer than I thought it would.
I admit that is is difficult to make surreal subjects look realistic.
Check your Private Messages. ^^
That looks fantastic!
Wow! The title screen mountains and the HTZ background look awesome! I especially love the clouds in the htz.
