For pixel_dailies -pretty satisfied with the results considering I managed to make this in one sitting. Sort of rushed it near the end because I'm starting to get tired but I might edit it more later. 

edit: cleaned some parts up, old version to compare Boulder still looks funny

Beautiful ;)

Love the colors..

Geonjaha (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/19/2016 11:36

All the way to the monthly top piece! Great stuff man.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/17/2016 12:34

Yea I guess so, I think it's pretty sloppy in a lot of places (boulder, lantern and some of the bushes) to get 1st place, but idk guess i'll take it 

Finlal (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 6/17/2016 08:16

1st place with pixel_dailies piece. Impressive.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 6/12/2016 20:28

Yeap, you're right about those, they were really last minute things is pretty much what happened there. I blame pixel_dailies tbh :^)

king_bobston (Level 10 Capo) @ 6/12/2016 06:34

liked, commented and subscribed!

I love the textures and the transition from dark to light, only thing bothering me a bit are the two right lantern(?) thingies (I've no idea how they are called and am too lazy to look them up) looking a bit sketchy.

Did I mention I also like the colors? Because I do.

TerryWill (Level 1 Gangster) @ 5/27/2016 08:27

Awesome *_*

vazovski (Level 1 Thug) @ 5/22/2016 09:21

Colors, clusters, everything fit and look so great! Worth a cup! 

Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 5/22/2016 06:38

Neat ! Colors and composition are spot on.
Only the bottom/right  1st plan kind of breaks the perspective IMHO .

Zizka (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/22/2016 02:58

I'm amazed at how fast you are progressing. This is looking spectacular. 

Amorph (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/21/2016 21:41

Recognized it as yours from the preview. Looks great!

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/21/2016 21:36

Thanks lin and everyone :D




I agree! However I still personally think it's lacking in some respect technically. I'll make up for it though haha

philippejugnet (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/21/2016 20:30

Your best work so far.

ArcadeHero (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/21/2016 17:01

I love you man

Veksell (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/21/2016 16:06

Just great.

|||| (Level 8 Marshal) @ 5/21/2016 14:35

I would never be able to pull this off! cause I would over pixel it. Very nice scene.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 5/21/2016 14:22

Fantastic atmosphere! Great colors!

andylittle (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/21/2016 14:08

Very balanced and soft color work!

Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/21/2016 14:08

Ahh, Deryk this is beautiful! Love everything about it. The colours are fantastic, textures are all great, and it just has such a fantastic atmosphere to it!

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/21/2016 13:45

I actually lied, I seriously did this in like, 3 minutes tops.





Thanks so much @everyone, really appreciate it! 

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/21/2016 13:43


Just updated a few things, check it out! I didn't add the highlights like you suggested, BUT only because I don't have a suitable colour that stands out on the grass as a highlight :(





Thanks! I'm pretty happy that I was able to make this in the timeframe that I did it in. And you think so? I still feel like my style is sort of inconsistent between pieces, something I still need to work on for sure. But thankyou dude :D 




Only took four years for me to finally do it :^)




That's insulting Ghibli right hahaha. Ty dude <3 





skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/21/2016 13:31

Around 9ish hours, I would estimate? Stayed up late working on it. Thanks theo =)

DatMuffinMan (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 5/21/2016 13:20

not bad, could be better. when you get good you should aim to get stuff like this done in 5-6 minutes. 

Mandrill (Level 8 Partner) @ 5/21/2016 12:36

This looks like something Ghibli would do.

Amazing pixel, man!

delicatone (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 5/21/2016 12:27

Lovely image! 

dragfly (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/21/2016 10:35

Fantastic! I would like to visit this place.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 5/21/2016 10:02

A drawing man drew well! 

hostile (Level 5 Sniper) @ 5/21/2016 09:21

loving the clusters ! damn i need to learn how to draw flora

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/21/2016 08:43

Skittlefucking amazing! XD

A few pixel-sharp highlights in the central area (2/3 leaves, half a dozen blades of grass) would really bring it to life.

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/21/2016 08:31

This is so impressive. Im really excited to know you're capable of doing things like this in one sitting. I've also noticed the early stages of a specific style that only you have. I wish I had a recognizable style. Great job man, you have to do more of these.

TZero (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 5/21/2016 08:02


Woahz! Beautiful coulours! 

specialmin64 (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/21/2016 05:26

woah did cure draw this? Seriously though this is good

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 5/21/2016 05:19

Excellent use of clusters and colors.

May I ask how long did it take?

You have a beautiful style.
