That looks really nice, and I like how you're so creative with re-using the original SMW graphics. I'd tone down the browns on the pyramids because they look more like dirt than sand that way... And the transition from lava to sand is a little strange, like you said. Maybe add more brown to the green?

Another thing, I don't think the yellow on the cave tiles looks very good with the rest of it. I realize it's reflecting lava, but the lava is rather dull so it doesn't make much sense.

Thanks, and since then I've created two more that will reflect the other times of day. I spent a lot of time on these and I think they should be sufficient.

Critiques are still welcome though, these last two aren't final.

My middle school. Got treated like shit, treated everyone like shit, and wasted my life in classes too dumb for my level of academics.

10 years ago when I was 8... fuckkk

This is so far from my current tastes.

Honestly, no. I don't see how it leads into the lava part, plus the lava part looks a million times better than the first screenshot you showed us.

Your design continually impresses me. Here I am making nice palettes in my thread and then I come waltzing in here, blown away like usual. Great job, keep up the nice work on the palettes and decorations. Your level design looks solid too, but I can't tell too much from the screenshots. I can't wait to see how this turns out in another month or so. Good luck.

Well here's my opinion, if all of the other sprites are faded, then it makes Mario look even more out of place. You should change that, because there's nothing you can do to change Mario's palette. Or make the level have more colors of blue instead of one faded blue. The less Mario sticks out, the better direction you're heading in.

I like the creepy atmosphere you were able to pull off just by manipulating the ghost house sprites and palettes. I love the hand idea and the ominous face on the wall, great work.

I'm guessing that's a layer two ghost chase part of your level? So far so good, but make sure to add decoration because it looks underdeveloped at the moment. I'd say unique, yes, but done before.

SNN will probably find a place for your level, he's said plenty of times that the world themes are purposely vague, and since you made a ghost house, he could probably jam that anywhere.

I think making a custom palette would really help this level out.

Plus the cave tileset doesn't exactly make sense outside.

I'm going to partially agree with Sokoban and say that the reason the colors look good is because those three colors, the green purple and orange, only look good together when all three are present. So just make sure that you don't have a section with only purple and orange or something because it'll look off.

Just finished reading Kafka on the Shore. If you want a mind-boggler, this is the book for you. I finished it pretty quickly so I'd recommend it for anyone.
