the last of my astronaut-themed pieces from or for evoke 2005..

the classic gridcopy-piece a demoscene pixel-artists has to have in his portfolio.. reference was a vampirella-picture by Dorian Cleavenger on which i penciled my reference-grid to get the proportions right (see here)

background and a few details are still to be finished.. i concentrated on the important parts first =P

Sexy pixel art xD

I like a lot the highlights and shadows on this one.

7heSama: Gridcopy is a term used in the demoscene (I think outside the demoscene there is another term, not sure) to describe the workflow of drawing a grid on the source image and then copying that source image (usually a photocopy, a photo, a picture from a magazine, what have you) with the help of that grid which you can also establish in your art program. This makes it pretty easy to get proportions right without too much effort.

What's a "classic gridcopy-piece"? 

Arpo78 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 9/19/2013 15:30

bricl (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/13/2009 02:38

mad sexy.

coran (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/17/2009 16:48

I really like this, the anatomy is really well done.  If I had to nitpick, it would be the left knee/thigh, which isn't bad at all, just not as consistently amazing as the rest.  But that's just a small thing, awesome job!


Wade (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/14/2009 15:13
Superb! Classic demoscene style and really nice choice of colours!

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/17/2008 11:52

Skull Master: no I think ur odd xD hehe

awesome piece, I'd hit her anytime!

joeC (Level 1 Private) @ 10/3/2008 19:04
i'd hit it...10/10

Skull Master (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/16/2008 12:01
(Also, her right knee cap looks odd) :/

Skull Master (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/16/2008 11:58
X'D Yup, she's fully suited to fight aliens and monsters. Remember the wize Sreetfighter logic!: "The less cloths a female has on, the stronger!" ;p

theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 12/16/2007 05:44
116 COLORS! that is alot if you ask me

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/31/2007 22:21
just came across the reference pic you used for that babe and now's a fitting time as any to comment. Awesome job on the girl but it's that planet in the back that I love most.

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/31/2007 00:25
Marvelous shading! Did you have a picture to go after?

Barky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/29/2007 20:26
yeah those are astronaut pants,  'cause  her ass is outta this world.    ok dumb joke  anyway it is magnificent work

grave (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/22/2007 03:32
Holy crap. I gotta say, the torso and stomach are totaly excelent. almost photo realistic.

schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/20/2007 11:33
fetter demostoff - findichrichtich gut

Afflict (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 9/20/2006 11:43
Congrats on gold the left leg like mardalles said looks wierd.

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 9/20/2006 08:31
Congrats on gold, very deserving

ulbandi (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 9/17/2006 12:41
The colors and detail on this are wonderful.

Mordalles (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 8/16/2006 14:33
*her left leg and right arm

Mordalles (Level 1 Hired Gun) @ 8/16/2006 14:31
looks nice.    a lot of the anatomy bothers me, especially the left leg and right arm (length, shape, shading and proportions in comparison to rest of body). also, the way you shaded her right hand makes it look like the hand is the wrong way around (but only if you look quickly). the planet on the right looks really nice. the right part of her bottom lip too seems a bit out of place (the shining just below the black). also, look at photos to see how the neck vain should go.

acrylicana (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/8/2006 21:14
Wow. I don't see why anyone's complaning about the face. Perhaps they're not too familiar with the character and that comic-style?
You have some great skills. :D

Angy-chan (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/8/2006 11:31

 Vampirella!!! Isn't she? Very beautiful even if some parts of the face looks strange to me!
Btw that's a masterpiece, great job!

Bob_Jones (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/8/2006 08:12
Looks great, especially the shiny skin, But her face is a bit revolting XD

Commodore (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2006 06:01
Sorry for double post but, I wonder why you pixelled it? You should buy oil-paints or a tablet because I think your paintings would be awesome.

Commodore (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 8/8/2006 06:00
This is piece is done the best on this site. I think the idea is not as good as some others are, the realization is very good!

jagged software (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 8/7/2006 21:23
I really like the shading and defined tone -- 3d illusion of light on the flesh ..

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/7/2006 18:27
hmm, ive blocked out both sides of the face and as seperate the work fine, but together it just looks distorted. the tecnical skill in this is really something to admire though!

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 8/5/2006 16:54
I personally dont like the style or the subject matter, and the background needs a lot of work, but i have to admire the technical prowess displayed in the figure.  5/6

BlackFang (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/3/2006 18:49

ur works are amazing but i dont like the faces u make, everybody is so ugly (this one look like she is old), but its just my opinion, my style is diferent


Devotos (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 8/3/2006 05:02

A sex girl. Fantastic!.
Sorry but this is like a old futurist movie.

hehehehe good workin steps!!! undecided in the planets.

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 8/3/2006 03:05
I like everything about it except for her face.. Her face is UGLAH! You better do something about it or I'll punch you!

Nevanda (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/3/2006 01:54

... ou this girl is perfect (...and so hot !!! ) ... (i'm in love)

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 8/2/2006 14:37
Some awesome work again, tomic! I love the lighting ... and her outfit .5/5.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/2/2006 14:13
Whoops sorry, didn't realise it was yet to be finished (i should read next time..)

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/2/2006 13:35
Some AA would be nice...

Tremulant (Level 1 Gangster) @ 8/2/2006 11:19
Beautiful, beautiful work on the figure. The skin looks fan-fucking-tastic. The unfinished parts blow it for me atm, but you mention yourself that it's not done. Can not wait for the finished piece. You're incredibly talented.

Monkeyspork (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2006 10:06
your defernately my idle...All your work is truely great.

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 8/2/2006 08:51
This is quite incredible. The detail is awesome, and i love the silky texture you've given her skin. It's a shame about the jagged lines, which shouldn't be too hard to fix with some AA. Great work, hopefully i'll see an update on those jaggies :D


raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/2/2006 08:33
Tomic rocks! And, thanks thanks for sharing the working steps, they are very interesting and useful!

neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 8/2/2006 08:19
Much thanks for posting the steps, it really helps to be able to contrast it with my own methods. I'll fave this on that basis, actually -- the actual image does not stand out to me except in the rendering.
It's also good to see that you have a good sense of when to leave details simplified, unlike many demoscene artists.

maloART (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/2/2006 08:01

Wow ... I just can't find any crits to write ... I just can't stop peeping at her ... um ... knees.

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 8/2/2006 07:36

This is your best piece yet!

Any chance you could point me to that reference pic you used?

Nitpick: Her left knee seems a little off. It should be angled toward the camera a little or just longer (since right now it looks shorter that her upper arm).


E-Magination (Level 3 Sniper) @ 8/2/2006 07:35
I've seen it somewhere before... Weird...

Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/2/2006 06:39
The figure is great but the rest of the image could have some more details I think...I also find her left hand to sketchy... still, it's very good!

REO THE FOX (Level 8 Shodan) @ 8/2/2006 06:28
someway i could see it was yours tomic and its amazing

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/2/2006 06:08
Incredible - This looks just fantastic.
