Nicely colored. The model shows a lot of character.

Wow, I love the colors you used, it reminds me of a hobo haha, very life like, great job!

This is a great piece.  However, I personally do not like it that much.  I don't know why... I think it just looks a little bit creepy. O_o

Excellent palette. It gives a great sense of texture to it.

Another great piece, Adarias. Especially nice now that you've given it the extra polish.

intermediate files? if you mean the progression, check out the "RPG Face" thread on pixelopolis

space2 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/15/2006 09:45
Man, you are a genius :-)
Do you have by any chance some intermediate files ?-) We could learn a lot from them :-)

the smoothing of the shading made this so much better.  Nice work.

daporta (Level 7 Colonel) @ 8/15/2006 07:18
It looks so realistic, and you use only 12 colors

PKT (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2006 06:34

I really love the way you put the metallic look to it, like the blue and green. and making that peice with only 12 colors is pretty sick...

Rodahue (Level 1 Intern) @ 8/15/2006 03:51
Regardless of all that art mumbo-jumbo I can't understand I'd say this is great, and even better when zoomed in once. (Great for an avatar.)

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2006 03:01
Even though it's a small pixel art piece it looks like a confident oil piece. Good work Adarias!

spiv (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/15/2006 02:59
nice colors

Monkeyspork (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/15/2006 02:15

I actually like the way it is, it's got a sloppy artist look. Im not saying its slopp work :P But its got a nice feel to it.

- Filax really knows his stuff :P

I knew this was yours from the first moment I saw it...

Palette-wise, it looks flawless, and you've obtained a certain realism. Technique-wise, it could be more finished...some dither, some aa there, nothing you can't easily do. Anatomy-wise, I feel the the eyes should be a little above (just one pixel or two) and the ear a little below (I'm not sure...see how it looks like with the eyes raised). Also, the cheekbone seems to long, because that cavity below it is too much...below. So, raise the eyes and then the cheekbone (a little bit more than the latter).
