Pixelled on Amiga DPaintIII in 1992 from a postcard. Postcard sky was mainly green, but converted to red pallette in 1993.

 This is a great colour pallette and the use of light and dark colours in this piece is well proportioned.

 Awesome. This looks like it can be for the recent weekly challenge ^.^

this is amazing.  looks like a photo.  very nice work except two minor details I see.  the center circle, along the top looks too flat, and on the top right roundish curve going up looks pixelated.

I really was just relating the two terms...I've seen Filax's work after all...

Wow this is quite an art piece

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/8/2006 14:29

Thx jagged eghost counted only 16 cols, which I think is how many it had originally - might have more now that it's been though a conversion from IFF to jpeg to GIF - although I've not modified the image pixels.

I only found out about pixeljoint earlier today and I'm really impressed by it. I was going to set up my own site for pixel GFX. I had no idea that there was such a following of this sort of art; the art that I had the privelidge to dabble in back in the day before the 3D revolution. I'm also well impressed that there are so many younger people who have a passion for pixel-art. Bring-on the anti-3D revolution!

>Eghost: Trust me, Filax knows what dithering is :p

I just saw Filax's stuff - nice use of dithering (Stippling as I remember it).

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/8/2006 13:15

Yea - it should be 16 cols, but uses a 32 col pallette - I never bothered converting to 16 in dpaint. Stippling - yea that's what we called it in the games industry in the early 90s - probably called something else in these days of 3D nastiness. Thanks for comments guys

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/8/2006 13:09
We refer to it as dithering...Stippling is a dot method of shading along the lines of pontilism...'Less I've gone completely elsewhere with my interpretation...

Filax_666 (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/8/2006 13:06
Stippling? What the heck is that?

eghost (Level 6 Hitman) @ 8/8/2006 13:02

Very nice...

Though I'm thinking the color count is off, since by my count it's at 16...That or I need a new pair of eyes...

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/8/2006 12:05

No that's ok. It took me ages to do the stippling. My biggest problem is there's perhaps too much stippling.

Sorry if I'm wrong, but it look's kinda colour reduced...
