I wanted to make something in the vein of old PC-98 game illustrations, and thought that making an XCOM fanart would be a nice double deal - plus mechanical motives are typical of the style.

It's a Seeker enemy from XCOM: Enemy Within. Sneaky bastards.

The background is garbage, yes.

Well, I'm still exploring the technique, so I'm bound to err on the side of excess rather than defect.

You don't really know the limitations of a technique until you've explored it thoroughly... on the other hand, I find dither patterns soothing, same with big chunky halftone prints.

So far all my dither pieces have been a research *on* dithering, what you can do with it and how. This time I was figuring out 8 basic patterns that yield all the typical dither patterns from 0% to 100%, and which order to paint them in.

Thanks a lot for the feedback people :)

i think dithering looks great but there are some perspective and proportions problems

Great drawing concept
but I feel you dither so much that the texture itself loses its meaning. As someone once told me- Dither is good when used in small amounts and efficiently, but when you dither an almost entire piece, it just just even look or feel like a great pixel art piece.
