it's in 2 colors instead of 1? hmm

So-Nick, you should work more in your art, it may look a little bit better than just solid blue, but it's very plain. we can imagine mountains, but more detail could make a better background.

I've seen a remake of that picture once, They made it themselves although, there are some good things in that, Could you add clouds and maybe make the hills seem more real, why not set it at night and make some spooky enemies to go with it, there you go, a completely new level, Gravestone Valley. Add some gravestones to make it live up to it's name, wow, You get a new level, from an old level. If you try this, I will be curious of the result and would like to see how template zone turns out then.

Template zone's background has more colours than that, I don't see how this is better. smile

Don't hype your threads unless you got some really awesome work done. A better topic name would be: Template background alternative. Don't take this the wrong way, but this definitely needs to be categorized as a placeholder background. And for good reasons.

1. It ain't that nice.
2. It lacks harmony and appeal.
3. It looks like a picture thrown together in a great big hurry.

Everyone can come up with awesome art, but if the tools ain't available then it often just stops at being a poorly done sketch. My advice to you would be to pick up GIMP, and study it properly. I say this to you, so you can go back to the drawing board and make this an awesome background. I believe in your talents, you just have to give it a bit of encouragement.
