Elixir Master artworks

We're working hard to finish our new game called Elixir Master. This app will be a high fantasy "business simulator" filled with mini-games, upgrades and much more.

Here are two versions of a background image we've just finished. Which one do you like better? Vote and discuss please.

#2! Maybe not as "freaky fantasy world" but nice and colorful while still fill of quirky style.

They're both good, but a bit pillow shaded

Color wise, they are about equal, it depends on the mood you're trying to set.

#2 is better in my opinion, and this game sounds like a game that I'd like to buy.

I would say #1 is more of a fantasy setting. #2 seems to normal to be fantasy themed.

#2 has better contrast and pops out more. However, it is a bit more traditional. Voted #2

Second: I don't think the colors of the first one fits the art-style and it somewhat feels like you're trying something different just for the sake of it. Love the second though.

I tried to decide for one of the pictures, but... I just wasn't able to. I had to go with both! They look really good, at least!
