I saw a gorgeous pixel art piece by http://www.pixosprout.tumblr.com and just had to try my hand in 3d. I love this artist's work.
Final scene is 15k polys. The girl is 1,150 polys and the llama is 780 polys. The trees ended up being higher poly than I wanted at 1.5k but I did like the outcome so I left them higher. Next time, will work on producing a lower poly foliage with intersecting planes etc perhaps.
2 x 1024x1024 - blocks and details.
2 x 512x512 - repeating texture for walls and floor.
1x 1024x1024 - girl
1x 1024x1024 - llama
This was so much fun and such a whimsical concept. It was great fun and good practice for handpainting - all lighting is painted in and the scene (unless otherwise indicated) is unlit.

Llamas are awesome.
Tree was the highest poly aspect of the scene - next time I would probably add less shape to the foliage as this ended up being higher poly than I would have really liked.
