Not a great deal of creativity in this piece (this will be my next project)
but I`m pleased with how it has come out all the same. I tried to give it
a bit more of a hand-painted feel though as apposed to making a straight
copy.

All drawn using just a single pixel brush in 16 colours in Pro-Motion.

Here's a link to the WIP animated GIF;

And here's a picture of my reference (although I didn't draw from this
actual .jpg. I drew it from the inlay of the album);

 Fantastic. The dithering makes everything so smooth. Doesn't even look pixeled.

 It all depends on what your style is. Some people enjoy that of photorealism, such as I. Others may PA strictly for style, or a stylized approach, as do I as well. I enjoy this piece because I enjoy realism. I also enjoy some of the more stylized pieces, such as that of Jinn and his pieces.

What's the point of pixeling photorealistical from a photo? Using a reference for another aim is ok I think, but this is just a copy. No doubt that the artist has very good skills and this is masterfully done for sure, but I will never understand why people adore something like this.

 16 Collors ? Realissstttiicccc !! 


user
PixelGremlin (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/7/2011 12:11

I would have said you used indexed colour on PS, but this is better. The fact it's done by hand makes it even more remarkable. Absolutely stunning, one of the best pieces I've ever seen.

 You ever see a piece that is ridiculously awesome that placed 3rd or 4th for the month and you can't possibly imagine how great the things were that beat it? This is one of those moments :] Great job

user
Sol Seraph (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/11/2011 09:30

It's art like this that makes me want to learn how to draw in pixels. The sheer realism is amazing, and it's even more impressive knowing it's all done in tiny dots!

It rocks. Keep up the good work!

The WIP animation says otherwise.  


user
JJoploo (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/18/2009 18:55

 Shut up, there's no why this is a pixel art. You must have reduced the colors on a picture of something. O.O


user

This is one of the most amazing artworks I have ever seen.

"WTF  where are the admins this is clearly NOT pixel art."

but then i zoomed in and my respect for you went  <9000.

Woah, that looked like a photograph at first! D: 5/5, for sure!

verfum (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 5/6/2009 15:36

Another comment has been made (jedzed) about anti-aliassed work looking 'photoshopped', which made me think...
When I started 'pixelling' in the late '80s, systems such as the Amiga and their rich pallette became a boon for artists, allowing 'antialiasing' to give the effect of straighter edges, and other effects. We used it constantly; and for this early period many of us didn't look back, less try to emulate the 'raw' limits of older 8-bit systems' graphics restrictions.
It's interesting as time has moved on we see more-and-more pixelled styles revert to the non-antialiased (aliased?) styles that artists had no choice but to use, but now use in anger - Metal Slug being the obvious example.
Do we think anti-aliassed work today, a technique that could once only be produced meticulously and skillfully by hand, has a lesser credibility now that such a technique (cheat?) is the bread-and-butter of modern art tools - even tools that are meant purely for pixel art?
Just a thought :P
