God... scenic pixel art is so beautiful.

I'm imagening it's a cool mornig, I've had thse types of mornings in the US and Mexico. I live in mexico and I remember standing in top of a hill looking down at the city. It was cold, cloudy, and there was light rain with the chilly wind. Mornings like those always hit different and I hope the come back this december. Awesome work. The city I live in is called Montemorelos, and you can search up the monument called "El Mono" it should show the city from the top and you can imagine the morning I described if you'd like. Keep it up.

It might sound silly, but my favorite detail is the red tower lights just barely visible off in the distance.

I remember once driving down the road in the sticks of South Florida, just enough light emanating from my headlights to help me see the outline of clouds in the dark sky, and the ping of red high atop the radio towers in the distance. It was dark as hell, not exactly cozy, but staring up at the sky... it was strangely beautiful...

So yeah thanks for the memories.

You did really well making this scene feel alive with good use of colors and your attention to detail; there is a lot of character to unpack in this piece. One thing of note to criticize though is that, despite the relaxed tone of this gif, the animations are very quick and a bit stilted which makes it feel a bit more chaotic and robotic than intended. Overshoot and slowing down the ends of loops would make it feel more alive. If The gif were to be longer you could have offset and slowed down more of the animations it would retain the mood of calmness and add even more detail. Say, if the gif was extended for every two breathing animations of the dog the ear twitches once, instead of for each breathing animation the ear twitching immediately after. For every six times the rain loops the crane goes through one loop, or for every two loops of the green boat the blue boat loops twice. Overall, this gif shows a strong understanding of color, perspective, and a talent for art. Nice job!

Thank you very much for the detailed input. I only started doing animated pixel art recently so this is really helpful

You have a real talent for capturing the ambience of a particular area... There are a lot of small, but interesting things that end up adding a lot to it, once I've stared at everything for a little while; the fish's tail wiggling or dog/wolf/caniform's ear twitching or the boats moving slightly out of phase with one another (though oddly, the rope and hook/crane do not... Perhaps intentional, because it has a bit of a hypnotic effect.)

Thank you very much!
