Usually people take stuff from videogames and they make fan art for it. This time I went the other way around and I put a very well known piece of art by Willaim Blake inside the appropriate videogame. Hey, it's good even for pixel artists to do master studies once in a while. Colors were difficult to do because I was using 4 bits per R,G,B channel, like the SNES would, but towards the end I gave up and did microadjustments in an 8,8,8 space. 

You can see how towards the end the pixels shapes on the face resemble a very busy game of tetris. That's when you know you're actually thinking about relationships between these shapes effectively.

In a couple of hours I'll link to a youtube video of me doing this whole image for anyone interested in process. EDIT: here we go: https://youtu.be/5WRhsQlNmpU

Very nice. Glad to see some new personal stuff from you. And the process video is a great watch as well :)

Thanks for the kind words.

Yes, Adam, I don't really care about any of that.

Looks great!

I guess you did not really intend this to actually look like Shin Megami Tensei, 'cause there are some very prominent deviations in style (your use of hue shifts and outlines, no flatness, highlights, background composition, etc.).

Thank you, ILKke! 

The reason I didn't do the shooting star as in the original is that I didn't want to use the brighter range of the palette for the halo of the star, I wanted it to be more backdrop.

Love the concept and technically it is rock solid.

Perhaps the only crit is that the shoting star doesn't fully come accross as much as it does in the original.

Also thanks for the video, always a plelasure to watch

Amazing! The work on the face is really amazing! The general anatomy was flawless. You can be sure that I'm interested in the video.
