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.

timothywalter (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/9/2018 02:32

Wow awesome! Did you set a colour palette beforehand or did you just wing it as you were making it?

MIERDINSKY (Level 8 Partner) @ 1/6/2018 15:03

Awesome !!

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/4/2018 06:47

Wow, I don't know if I've ever seen such good photorealism in pixel art.

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/3/2018 05:51

Super cool work.

Sylon (Level 1 Depressed) @ 1/2/2018 17:04

I haven't zoomed in to a weekly showcase pixel art piece in a looooong time! Good work as usual!!

AirStyle (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/2/2018 11:32

...Dude, it looks like a painting! Very nice!

jok (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 1/2/2018 05:10

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/1/2018 17:16

very awesome! :D

JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/1/2018 16:27

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. 

Amorph (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/1/2018 13:47

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.

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/1/2018 11:13

You're so great dude.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 1/1/2018 08:02

Great work! I especially like the cooler skin tones. 

gennoveus (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/1/2018 02:47

Just amazing. Happy new year!

jackhummer (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 1/1/2018 02:19

Meapers (Level 2 Dealer) @ 1/1/2018 00:30
