Hai guys, i NEED you! The thing is, if you think you can draw "nice" then do try, please.
So, i need a few backgrounds for scenes in my levels, but i suck at drawing "bigger" things in the computer, so here i come for help to you! If you have some spare time or stuff, please draw me a few backgrounds. They should be SIMPLE,and pixel-art-ish. Something in the type of this:



The background there is the kind of thing im looking for,so i need this kind of background
(Backgrounds cannot scroll etc,just basic image) for:

A Desert

Ice-Like background

Jungle

-Lava and Volcanoes?-

Thanks for all the help!

Note: All the people who made a background,which i used,will be noted in bald writing in the CREDITS of the game.

Note two: The image background size im looking for is 640 x 480. Thanks for all the help!

Nah man, it's not bad at all :) You might be thinking that it doesn't look exactly the same as the example provided in the OP, but the only difference is that that piece of pixel art is 2 x zoomed and yours is 1 x. There's some single pixels sticking out at the edges of the mountains here and there, but if you zoomed in on it, it'd look even better than the mountains in that first image do.

And @ Bacon, not to call you out or anything, but that is not a "SIMPLE" piece. At all. That's a hand-made gradient type skyline with stars, and mountains, and two layers of fog /clouds, and trees in a fairly off-beat style, AND some abstract looking type things... yeah.

Again, no offense but if you're going to be asking people to hook you up, at the very least you can respect the amount of effort that's put into what it is you're looking for.

Why thanks guys xD I guess I'm too self critical :P

I'll be more than happy to do more backgrounds for the game but it would help if your a little more active here Bacon, be sure to send me your email or something?

Huh, I was going to mention this in my earlier post but forgot:

Bacon, it would probably benefit the overall look of your game if you can give people a color palette to go on. StereoPixel rocked those mountains nicely for you, but it'd suck for you both if the shades of blue clash with your game sprites.
