i am not sure but i think you have used a picture pixelator

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 5/3/2018 09:58

@Dawnbringer: thanks a lot, ha ha, one more person and I will be forced to do that :D (optimise)

Rendering could be a bit better, but I spent already too much time on it 

thanks again

@StarQueen: :)

@digger: thanks 

DawnBringer (Level 10 Pixel artist) @ 5/1/2018 08:02

You found the perfect 12-bit colorscheme here...but it bugs me to no end that you didn't keep with the 32 color restriction as well. Killer rendering though!

Super work

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/29/2018 05:16

@Fleja2003: thanks! :)

@IvoryFalcon: thank you! - more coming soon

Fleja2003 (Level 7 Lotus) @ 4/27/2018 12:01

That's insanely good!

IvoryFalcon (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/27/2018 00:08

Daaamn, this looks crazy good. Impressive work!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/26/2018 12:17

@Mandrill: Thank you very much, It means a lot for me, really :)

@Blackmambuh: thanks!

@MrHai: Yes, in fact makes him older, I'm working on  corrected version, but as change is irrelevant for gfx as pixelart I just wanted to show it as it is :) And thanks!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/26/2018 12:11

@ParkerBaby: Not really, as this time its not my model or some anonymous / imagined person. But I will most likely post more, at least one for that moment.

ParkerBabyDiaperCompany (Level 2 King Checker) @ 4/26/2018 11:21

Can you post the reference picture to compare?

Mandrill (Level 9 T-rex) @ 4/26/2018 10:04

I cannot get over how great this looks!

Absolutely stunning.

Blackmambuh (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/26/2018 10:03

Incredible! Photorealistic! 

MrHai (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/26/2018 07:22

I think the contrast in the eyes (highlight) is a little too harsh. Otherwise its fantastic!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/26/2018 05:37

@Theoden: Ok, got it :) I was not trying to copy photo in literal way. There is a lot going on with colors and graphic side of picture I hope. 


@jackhummer: :) could be easily less - but I'm ok with 35 

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/26/2018 05:32

@Frost: thx! - As its not amiga or demoscene release in general, I don't see point in strictly folowing platform restrictions.

From the other hand ... I have habit to learn something every time and take challange with limitations - thats why OCS palette :) Picture can be easly optimised to 32c - just  there is no reason for doing that.

Don't worry - amiga stuff in pipeline ;)

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/26/2018 04:58

Nice portrait!
Why 35 colors?

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/26/2018 01:26

When you get the "looks like a photo" comment on a pixel art, you sure are doing it right :)

Excellent rendering.

jackhummer (Level 2 Corporal) @ 4/26/2018 01:13

Only 35 colors!

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/25/2018 23:48

@Pixelart_kid:  thanks :) 

@Zephyrrite: - but its not ;) I paint with oil colors too - so I like this kind of realistic style with broken ramps and color richness 

@Wrex: thank you!

Pixelart_kid (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/25/2018 17:31


Zephyrrite (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 4/25/2018 13:32

Wow, looks like a photo!

WreX (Level 3 Stalker) @ 4/25/2018 12:56

good job 

jok (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/25/2018 12:21

@DexRunner: Thanks!

Photo as reference - quite good but no professional.

I hope too :) And I will try :)

@AirStyle: Thanks a lot!

AirStyle (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/25/2018 12:13

HO. LY. CRUD! That is amazing! Nice work!

DexRunner (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/25/2018 11:26

No photos in the gallery please.  

Amazing work!  What kind of reference were you using for it?  I think my favorite part is the beard.  I hope you do some more of these!  Keep up the amazing pixels!
