No problem, sorry for hitting a nerve. good luck with the unfolding!

AlcopopStar (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/23/2016 16:05

Thanks, i will, and i encourage experimentation! Sorry if i was overly harsh in my first response, you touched on issues I'd been worried about. We'll see how it all unfolds.

I appreciate the intention-ality  keep it up - it's great to see an arrow of exploration. My stuff can be pretty stale; maybe I should just try it another way sometime.

Perhaps that is true, perhaps you hit a nerve. I honestly don't know if making such high resolution pixels is a great idea, but I'm not yet convinced it's antithetical to the artform. In any case experimenting with this upward limit doesn't do any harm and I'm not sure why you would discourage it, you have the rest of pixel joint for wonderful, more traditional, works. 
I suppose it's good to know that someone sees the experiment in size as a failure, that's valid. But it's important to understand that i'm not doing any of this by accident.

Intentions are just as subject to criticism and debate as outcomes. Don't take it so personally; PJ is renown for its theoretical aspirations as well as excellent art.

You don't need to tell me to embrace the medium, I already am, just because i'm doing something unusual with pixel art doesn't mean I don't understand the art form. I would hope that my gallery, and my position as a professional freelancer,  would attest to the fact that I have at least some understanding of the medium
Also your implication that this took more time isn't correct. The whole point of this peice was to see if I could push the upward limit of resolution without effecting production time all that dramaticaly. If you check my tumblr you would see that I index paint initialy for this reason.
I'm happy for people to critize my art, this is far from a flawless picture and the comments here already have a lot of useful and valid stuff, but please don't presume that my intentions are wrong just because you have a preconceived notion of what pixel art should look like.

Why spend the time to build such a huge picture in pixel art? Something half the resolution is just as effective even if you just compress this image with a bilinear filter using the same palette. Pixel art is about economy; embrace the medium!

those ears are so fluffy damn. just wanna push them down and watch them spring back up

I agree that the pants look flat, and I also think the outlined armor kind of clashes against the outlineless body. Stunning work nonetheless.

Oh wow, no really wow. That gaze. Yummy.

GeePee (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/17/2016 11:16

Looks nice and clean. Awesome work.  I like Zootopia :)

Psiweapon (Level 4 Ensign) @ 4/17/2016 11:01

The pants look too flat compared with the rest of it but it's pretty much awesome.

Really cool!
