Guys, look at the original piece he made this from (which i suggest you add a link to from the description of the piece, fool), it's quite different to this one in a fair few ways, and i think it's enough to grant this being called pixel art. Fantastic piece fool, very inspirational.

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/2/2006 14:22
It's a shame this isn't pixel art. :(

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2006 14:19

Filax_666, you're giving me way to much credits.

English is not my native language, I probably should learn a dozen bad words to make good discussion.

Thank you, I'll defenetly try as long as it fits my needs.=)

Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/2/2006 13:46
Some people should learn from this guy! This is the right attitude to have in an ocasion like this: don't deny the wrong you've done, be sincere and try to understand if you are in the right place...all of this was done by Fool, proving that he is exactly the opposite of what his nickname says! I'd say "don't leave this place, just try to adapt yourself, consider it a challenge if wish...maybe if you explore the "correct" way of doing pixel art you'll find some beauty in it and try to develop your skills...who knows"

Really. Think about it.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2006 13:16

calacver , im probably bad on exlanation or you just answering to your own thoughts.=)

I'll try again. i undestand that reducing size does not convert hires into pixel - that's clear even for me=), and again - redused image basically  served me just as lineart  sinse new one was drawn with photoshop pencil and choosen colors on new layer. But anyway - i already know i came to the wrong place. "Pixelart" if it's all about what i think it is actually is not what im seeking for. i want to make small clear-detailed images, i don't want to count pixels alsough i would understand that idea as a challenge.


calacver (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2006 12:35
Results of the finished picture is important yes, but to me pixel art is defined by art created by pixels, not hi-res art reduced, since nomatter how much you reduce it, it remains hi-res art. Isn't that pixel art? Art created by pixelling techniques as the name suggests? That's what makes it so different from other art forms.

Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/2/2006 10:34
WOW I give you a lot of credit for the way you're handling those comments! Sincere and frontal! Way to go!

soopafly (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2006 09:07
tight ............

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2006 08:03

kaltsu ,  im happy but mostly with the drawing process, result is just a lifeless statement the way i see it.

And I'm suck - thats a fact.=)) I admit i'm pretty old guy ,( there is one boy who call me grandpa:)) and spend all my ambitions on other things then becoming an artist. And for a pixel art...well, no offense to anyone, it just sounds too dumb to try impress anyone with the technics rather then a picture in general. So i'm not.:)


kaltsu (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/2/2006 06:12
Fool, you don't suck and you know it. I see there have been lots of steps after original piece and I think you can freely be happy with the result. It's big picture with lots of stuff innit and you would be crazy and quite a genius if you could pixel something like this from the scratch. Very nice work.  Much better than original and it gaves this piece blessing in my books. Still liking this one more.

And for the other stuff in your homepage... wow.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2006 05:54
leel, It's seems to be the case. I'll check for another spot. =)

leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/2/2006 05:30

well it's good that you didn't call it pixelart, but here's the problem -  this is PIXELjoint, so all works are required to be pixelart.  And while this may be a really pretty picture, if it's just a trace, I'm not impressed (anymore). Sorry  =(

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2006 05:21

Guys, relax. =) What ever this is - its just a picture. If content is incomprehensible all is left to discuss a quality of primering canvas.:)) I didn't call it a pixelart and I told you im suck on whattver I do. =)

Here is an original.

calacver (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2006 04:27
Hey, that's not pixel art, it's tweaked hi-res art.

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 8/2/2006 01:43
So he simply resized, color reduced, and retouched an old pic of his?
If that's the case, then this clearly is not pixelart in my book.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/1/2006 23:56

not my cup of tea, sorry..

i don't think that this is pixelart by definition and it doesn't look like you spent much time in that overpixeling (some areas are still looking dirty like fresh from the converter and the dithering is just in the background/surroundings)

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/1/2006 18:53
Awesome pallate choice, concept, and execution!

daporta (Level 7 Colonel) @ 8/1/2006 13:24
Wow..... super work!!!! love the concept. Fav automatic

ZZZkodi (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/1/2006 12:34
 OMG! Pretty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ( 7/7!!! FAV!! )

Ro83rt (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/1/2006 11:10

Is that a baby I spot in the steam in between Adam and Eve?

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/1/2006 04:52

Mordalles, That's quite alright.  Alsough this one was drawn over on new layer using old one just to stay in shape,  I'm not sure if what I do is actually a pixel art at all - still floating on definition. Even if it's not - it still ok with me, im no artist - just having my fun.I  take a pensil, choose a color i feel is right and go on. Dont know much about pallettes yet about a lot of other stuff  i should know to deside who a hell am I.=)

Mordalles (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 8/1/2006 04:24
looks nice. i would rather see original pixelarts from you (not just painted over old paintings, i dont really see that as pixelart). some areas looks colour reduced. but great painting!

just so that people dont attack me. ill just explain. when painting something, you have a vast array of tools to use, like burn and dodge tools etc. its easy to highlight certain areas quickly and adding shadows etc, and then reducing size and just going over pixel by pixel. also using brushes makes shading much easier, since its pretty easy to go over a painted pic with pixels, when you just have to get the colours from the paiting for every pixel. but im new in the pixelworld, so if its not a problem, forget about me. i might just submit a few pixellated paintings myself then.  just my opinion.

again, great painting.

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/1/2006 03:31

Zee , thats what I am - still learning.

zAk ,  those pics are kind of old, well - relatively old. I start pixeling last november...Well, I'll submit later.

Azrael , I'm not ready to make tutorials yet, most of the time i have know clue what a hell am i doing. Struggling between what i want and what came out.

mike2590 , if you talking about concept - it is much-much older  (from ancient hindu manuscript). Probably as relict as swastika, star, cross etc. =) Every concept alredy exist even if someone just get it.

mike2590 (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/1/2006 03:04
great work, but this does have a striking similarity to the water and fire elementals from warcraft one... yeah, from way back when.

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/1/2006 02:45
You are genius. This work is wonderful. That not know say...

Blueberry_pie (Level 7 General Manager) @ 8/1/2006 01:19
Whoamg, that's amazing.

Azrael (Level 2 Dealer) @ 8/1/2006 00:03
you should make a tutorial for this kind of pixel art, 5/5 an faved

smartmex91 (Level 1 Private) @ 7/31/2006 23:20
Words cannot express the way I feel about this piece... but a smiley can. lol.

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/31/2006 23:10
Wow -You fool ;) you should submit your other pieces that are at your page - i found them even better, submit them so that i can fav them ^^ Youll place in the monthly comp for sure... zAk

Zee (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/31/2006 19:18
Take me on as your apprentice?

pangaru (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/31/2006 18:00
O.0  So awesome.  The fire and water looks very real, and cool concept :)

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 7/31/2006 17:52
wow, incredible work.  the dithering and shading is perfect.  i really hope to see more from you

Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/31/2006 16:22

Guys, thaks you ALL for comments.=) It makes me feel uncomfortable - I never heard so many good words toward myself (most common - fool, I wonder why ...:))

Adarias, I've got same filing, but  choosing between simbolizm and general art req get me in a hard place. Whole idea is to set both simbols in oposition - shapes, colors, meaning of simbols - everything. I didin't succeed on mixing green and red - looks terrible, and ruin sinus curve which is simbolically important for me. Well, I suggest it is ok as long as fire and water simply readable.

Afflict, I  dramatically reduced original pic size and draw over it to change stuff along the way focusing mainly on general idea.The original image is very old - I've just learn Photoshop by then.


Valcron (Level 2 Corporal) @ 7/31/2006 16:10
Amazing piece, I love the attention to details.  I must admit though, it took me a good second look to tell whether Eve was of a water or wood element to her look.  That means I didn't look at the steam at the bottom right.  But once I looked again I saw.  Again, simply amazing.

Sgrum (Level 5 Captain) @ 7/31/2006 14:49
I´ve no words...

Godslayer (Level 2 Corporal) @ 7/31/2006 14:34
Holy Jesus.  It'd be folly to explain how good this is.

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 7/31/2006 13:55

While I'm certain the palette could be trimmed, I don't care...

Beautiful work...

manxana (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/31/2006 12:54
Amazing it looks really soft!

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 7/31/2006 12:33
Odd, name - i dont think i like it - However the piece is *a*m*a*z*i*n*g*!

Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 7/31/2006 11:38
Larwick: so dont wait: (fenomenal site, and pixels) glorius!

Monkeyspork (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/31/2006 11:37

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 7/31/2006 11:27
This is just a supern piece of art!

Llama (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 7/31/2006 11:10
That's wonderful!

REO THE FOX (Level 8 Shodan) @ 7/31/2006 11:02
This is awsome!7/7 and fave!

Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 7/31/2006 10:52
Thats pretty KEWL! Did you do it over or just paint over the original?

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 7/31/2006 10:41
its a very nice rendering.  i would like to see more lighting, especially with the fire, maybe reflected into the water and sparking and such, since at it feels more like colored solids than water and fire, but its very very good nonetheless. * * * * * * from me

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/31/2006 10:29
Oh, and you can check out his site (in his profile) to see more of his art.

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 7/31/2006 10:28
This is absolutly astonishing. What a fantastic piece of art. 6/6, fav.

milkyjon (Level 4 Murderer) @ 7/31/2006 10:21
This isnt really my cup of tea. But stunning none the less. Really really nice work..your far to moddest.  keep up the good work.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/31/2006 10:16
This is perhaps the most incredible piece of work I've seen here at PJ. I can't wait to see more pieces from you.
