For me, we see too clearly the diff between all the elements of the skin, and honestly, and u do all the elements in the same way, 2 or 3 colors, and to my mind, we don't see any diff of texture, like the foam of the waves is just white with some shades at the ends to fit more with the rest of the landscape, but u could do something rlly different because on the picture, we clearly see that the foam is not only white but with a lot of contrast in it, ... and I totally don't know how to explain.
And a last thing that I have to tell u is that on the picture, we understand, but if somebody only see the skin, and I was like that before seeing the picture, we don't understand what is the 2 yellow things at the top of the skins, at the beginning I thought there were 2 suns... anyway
So, if for me textures aren't represented or represented enough, the colors are perfectly chosen.
Have a great time

First of all, I have to say, if you don't have something nice to say about someones skin, perhaps keep it to yourself? Be supportive of what people produce, and kindly offer suggestions of improvement, and not be so critical.
Secondly, I was inspired to make this skin for the Summer Vacation Event, and while pixel art landscapes aren't really my strong suit, I had a lot of fun making it, which is the point to begin with. While you may be attempting to deliver constructive criticism with this comment, which is greatly appreciated, the way you have torn it apart left me feeling as I have failed in some way. I stand by the skin as it is, happy with my result, and I am sorry that you didn't like it :/ Thank you for the compliment on the colors. And nice day to you too ♥

U say that u had fun while making that skin, ok, but... it's not an argument, cause I can do the worst skin and say "I had fun making it" and then nobody can say anything about it ??? It's also not an argument in the point that it is an contest, a competition.
And u say that the way I have torn it apart left you feeling as u have failed in some way... yes and ??? for u, nobody can dislike ur skins ?? or can have a negative point of view ? and if u enjoyed making ur skins nobody can say it wasn't good ? OFC, fun is important, but not the first thing to think about in a contest.
The worst thing are the 2 first lines, if I don't have something nice to say about someone skin, perhaps keep it to urself ? be supportive of what people produce and kindly offer suggestions of improvement and not be so critical, I'm not angry at all, I just see point that I think could be better, point that are good, some points that are bad, and I tell u, that's all, good news : I'm not god, I don't have THE ultimate point of view, ofc It's subjectiv, but saying that my arguments can't change ur mind because u're happy with the result and just saying "I'm happy with my result" is useless, and u think, by telling u some kind of bad points, isn't it way more helpful and useful than just saying THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL I LITERALLY CAN'T RESIST OMG ?

u have 2 choices, or u prefer useless comm that leches u, or a comm that allows u to improve some points, even if maybe some of my arguments aren't true and u think I'm wrong with them, then, explain me why I'm wrong, accurately, cause that's not what u do. And we clearly see at the end of ur comm that u don't say thx to bad points but only the compliment about colors.

"It's not an argument" You say that you are only offering a helpful critique, yet you use the word 'argument', and if I am required to defend my actions, or explain my choices that I made, when making this skin. I didn't make this skin for you, nor did I ask for advise or help in making it better in the description. I would never do this to someone, so I am having trouble understanding what your end goal is with pursuing this?

I did say that I appreciate constructive criticism, I just don't care much for you manner of delivering it. Thank you for taking the time to offer suggestions to make my skin better in your opinion. If I had made the skin for you, to please you specifically, I would make the changes you suggested. But I didn't. I made it for myself, and for others that might like it as much as I do. There are many art styles you know. I am sorry you do not like mine.

I personally would never post a negative comment on someones skin. They apparently like it as it is, and posted it to share what they had created with other members of this community that might like it too. If I don't like a skin, I simply move on. The only time I would offer constructive criticism on a skin, is if they were openly asking for tips/advice in their skin description, or if they direct message me. Holding this view point, you must see why viewed your comment as an attack on my work.

I also must say that you are incorrect about this being a "competition". It is an event, not a contest. There will be no judging of anything submitted. It is being held to inspire members to have fun and create something Summer Vacation themed :) And by the way, if it were a competition, I would submit this skin, as it is right now, and hope for the best. Because I am extremely happy with the way it looks, and would not change a thing.

"I am happy with my skin" isn't a defense of what I chose to do, I said this because I was trying to avoid arguing with you, as you clearly are trying to do with me. It is simply how I feel about my end result, and I won't be changing anything about it. I simply do not agree with your advise because I don't like skins that are too pixelated. There are very few skin artists who can make highly pixelated skins that look good in my opinion. I am not one of them lol. Artists who can well execute what you suggested, that come to mind, are eyhoffi and Nighthearted. Perhaps you will find something that better pleases you in their galleries. I intentionally chose not to say this, because I did not want to offend members who make highly pixelated skins, or like these types of skins. That is their preference, and I would never argue with it, or judge them for it.

Thank you for taking the time to try to help me improve my skin to your liking, but I don't like your suggestion, and my skin will remain as it is :)
