I think this one of you best in this one point perspective series. Somehow you made the water in a green tone that does not exist on the C64. Great work!

The water reflection distortion is subtle and looks really good.

@Fabs: Thank you very much! I think it's so much easier to draw with 1-point perspective than 2 (and above).
It gets a more comprehensive and simpler look but still maintain a kind of "truth to the eye" kind of sensation.
I guess it makes things easier, when you can keep all horisontal lines the same but just diminish the other ones to the V.P.
Yes, I needed some shadows, I tend to forget about that and wanted to dither more again. Slowly steps making the walls a bit gritty.

@Oswald: Thank you! Though I'm not so inventive anymore, there is not much to find in the border,
I do the "open and close"-thing with sprites with 2 colors underneath.
But what I started doing evident in perhaps mostly last year's images was to keep the "language" throughout the image.

Firehawk is still pinching me each time telling this one was the best
in masking out the border!
Maybe he is right?

Anyway, I will keep on doing those perspectives and gosh opening border is gives so much more space to think!

Not sure I'd be as casual about the bats as the people in the picture are, but a great continuation of your current style.
