16 colors

amiga palette (OCS)


painted with mouse

took about 8 hours pure pixel pushing 

references/inspirations - some google tribal photos from africa

not much more to say ;) 

- I was trying to fit in limited (for me) palette and much smaller picture with stuff I usually do in 32 col. 320x180 px. 

hope you like it

Mr_Hk_: thanks!

Imho dithering/shading style is different in parts, and I tried to mimic DoF by using cluster (there is no clusters on skin, and hair have no dithering at all) 

Mr_Hk_ (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/11/2018 01:26

Super impressive dithering !
If I may, I would only regret that this effect is applied in an uniformed matter.
It would have been interesting to simulate boket/ DOF by letting some part blurry.

In any case, very interesting dithering patterns.

Fleja2003: thanks - yes, I don't use any automated tools (like dithering) so all those random pixeles are put manually ;)

digger: thx!

looks really great! Unique dithering which works well. Dont wanna take from this piece, but are you able to link the reference(s) used? Understandable if you might not currently have it\them, just am curious! Cheers!

This is too beautiful! you have such a unique style of pixel art, I often zoom in to see if you just dithe a lot or place pixels randomly, but you can see precise consistent patterns that give your art your own effect

very skilled - I love it c:

- Many thanks :D

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/8/2018 09:32

Irenaart: thanks! - I'm happy that you like palette, I was afraid that colors are too generic and monochrome - but for me it was enough challenge to limit myself 'by half' (normally I use 32 colors)

Awesome art.

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/8/2018 05:36

Amazing piece! I can't stop watching it. You got me with a beautiful palette.

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/7/2018 21:30

I understand that feeling; I also feel like I burn out on every image. Glad to see I'm not alone! Maybe I should copy you and try to optimise workflow... thanks agian!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/7/2018 20:43

orangemagic: really glad you like it :)

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/7/2018 20:42

Char212: thank you!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/7/2018 20:41

gennoveus: thank you very much, it took 3-4 days but this time I tried app for counting 'productive' hours :)

I'm trying to optimise my workflow, literally cannot spend 2 weeks/40 hours per picture, and from other hand - to leave every piece unfinished anymore :)

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/7/2018 20:35

shm31: thank you pal!

so pretty...

gennoveus (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/7/2018 17:42

Really excellent dithering, use of colours, everything. 8 hours seems quite short considering the level of quality!

shm31 (Level 6 Made) @ 1/7/2018 16:19

A beautiful piece of work, good job !
