happy new year and goodnight.
edit: the "depixelized" version is pretty slick btw (ran it through waifu2x twice)
holy ******* ****
Ah thanks for the info! Checking out your website now and love your art style! (The vivid colours really are a joy to the eye)
I used a process you see elsewhere in my gallery (Grishkin, !, Liondog, Consider the Lilies) and turned a traditional painting into pixel art. So the computer decided my palette based on the color choices in my painting, then I tweaked it from there.
I never use preformed palettes and I don't worry much about color counts, the palette develops to fit the concept.
Wow awesome! Did you set a colour palette beforehand or did you just wing it as you were making it?
Damn impressive work
fucking fantastic! you are incredible at pixel art!
Wow, I don't know if I've ever seen such good photorealism in pixel art.
Super cool work.
I haven't zoomed in to a weekly showcase pixel art piece in a looooong time! Good work as usual!!
...Dude, it looks like a painting! Very nice!
nicely done - congrats!
Holy shit! What a masterpiece!
very awesome! :D
Obviously I'm impressed with the quality of this piece as a whole. Call me crazy but I really love the framing. The simplicity, color, and rounded edges of the frame fit so well. Definitely a classic portrait feel.
I feel like some of the decisions about what to make heavily antialiased and out of focus and what to make more sharply outlined and crisp are a bit odd, but on the whole it’s got loads of depth and is quite aesthetically pleasing.
You're so great dude.
Great work! I especially like the cooler skin tones.
Just amazing. Happy new year!
Such a magnificent piece of art.
handsome boy, handsome pixels.
Ooo, nice as always, Cure. Fantastic self portrait
That's amazing use of dithering
