This was done as a style study of Kenneth Fejer.  learned alot from doing this, and was a ton of fun to do.


The sky/background is not pixel-art.

EDIT:  resubmitted without CG sky

This guy seems to come out from the simpsons' world. The colours are really beautiful, but the leaves of trees seem somehow unfinished.

user
pixeljockey (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/25/2007 09:55
I like this one, if you finish the gfx i will do the programming
to make a game out of it. Contact if interessted.
If you are talented pixelpusher who is desperately
in search of a programmer (Win,Mobile,Flash) to
make the gfx come alive in a game, im a programmer
who is desperately in search of pixelpushers who would
like to collaborate on any kind of game-project.

Please contact and sorry, i know im posting this everywhere :-)

Indigo (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/30/2007 19:47
if you guys want to get in a bun about the brushed sky, be my guest.  I simply suggest ignoring it and looking at the pixel-art for what it is, minus the sky.

I implemented the CG background simply because that is something that has remained constant through most of Kenneth's work.

user
skeddles (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/21/2007 15:53
hey your right!

NPA ALERT! NPA ALERT!   i cant beleve how many pieces get into the gallery that arent complete pixel art. such a shame

user
inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/31/2006 06:00

It seems to me that the sky is not pixeled...


user
brod'tam (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/4/2006 14:58
You manipulate styles and characters like it sould be...puppets. Simple and strong skillz mockup !

user
nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 9/10/2006 08:20
Beautiful in it's simplicity, and lovely soft palette!  The squirrel looks truly demented!

user
ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 9/3/2006 13:44
This is beautiful. Everything is so solid and plasticky. I love the colors and contrast.

user
buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 8/23/2006 13:52
I know you are doing a style study, and personally I like the sky. But it would be so cool if you could've mixed his style in with your own pixelling background layer(s). But still this is very nice. 6/6 fav. The squirrel wackyness rules.

user
Schnauzer (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 8/18/2006 16:17
Is an snapshot or an original pixel art? ...because looks really good.

user
Meka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/16/2006 07:38

Great work, Indigo - I love it!

Wonderful character design and choice of colors.


user
Aramax (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/9/2006 02:22

You could almost make a game named SKWERL with those!



user
acrylicana (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/8/2006 21:19

Squirrels rock!

user
neota (Level 8 Shodan) @ 8/3/2006 19:48
This is NICE! Except for the character's eyes that remind me too much of Spongebob Squarepants for me to like the design.

user
Saboteur (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/3/2006 17:16

OH, one crit I forgot to chuck in there, might as well stick it here.
Palettes - don't artists of your caliber usually merge anything so similar as some of the ones you've got there? It's a bit gaudy of me to suggest, because I don't know if you chose to or not, but if you DID slip up on that, then... yeah.

I love it. Definite fave that I might study it later, so I can learn 'bout colours and how to not suck at them.

OH, and why did you submit it at double-size? Whatever happened to original size?


user
Devotos (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 8/3/2006 16:18

Sgrum (Level 5 Captain) @ 8/3/2006 14:23
It´s a funny work, but not is a complete pixelart: I suposse that the sky was draw with a brush tool, not pixel by pixel.

user
eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/3/2006 14:07

raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/3/2006 12:33
Good-looking colors, but I noticed straight shadows on the tree, they can be more interesting.

user
