hi! so, I was making what will essentially be a the title screen for a game I working on. The game has a 2 color palette (purple and a pastel green), with one exception of a transparent overlay of the purple color like you see in this gif.  After I finished this and looked at it at 1x, I realized that while I know it is supposed to look like, I'm not sure if it will be clear enough for other people will understand it.

no lighting

what the title screen might look like




for reference, this is an image of a person sleeping on a mattress on the floor (with a blanket covering most of them), with a pillow leaning against the wall. As the title of the game suggests, this is what is happening (they are sleeping) while the player races crabs in their dreams (Chao race-style, albeit in 2d).

Yes, but a couple of simple facial features can help make things a lot clearer. Love the palette btw.

The light from the window is a really nice, eye catching detail.
The head of the sleepy dude blends too much with the white blanket margin.It took me a while to figure out it's the blanket. At first I thought it's his...beard (or is it)? Can you slightly adjust the way the blanket folds around his head?

Good luck with the project!
