Simply an amazing piece of work!

Xirkur (Level 1 Private) @ 9/17/2006 16:33

Omg... that is amazing... I'm literally speechless.  I wish I had some advice but I have no room ro speak... so this one is a faviorite.

toptotty (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/17/2006 13:48
What an amazing picture.  i love it 100 out of 10!  toptotty

Something about the perspective of the farthest right guy and his hat makes his face appear a bit flat.  Nice use of the curve tool in MS Paint, haha.  Dithering is smooth as.

I don't have words ..... wonderful O_O ...

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 9/1/2006 13:30
Tomster, this isn't oekaki. Oekaki doesn't incorporate dither techniques and often uses rhuedementary shading techniques. You avatar is more oekaki than this piece. You should think before you speak, or post, rather.

tomster 785 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/1/2006 04:05
so this is oakeui or however you spell it

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/31/2006 23:26

maybe a more 3D model may help?

Maybe these may help?



raynoa (Level 5 Soldier) @ 8/31/2006 21:59
massive! my favorite parts here - hair,because it requires a lot of work, and decorations.

Jaeden (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/31/2006 21:15

1) the rocky background was semi rushed, but I was afraid if i detailed dithered it it would be too sharp against the forground. I may edit this after your comments.

2) The ear, (on kiera specifically) pissed me off to no extent. I think i drew it completely wrong. I gave up after a while. I like tyes ear, but not kieras, If anyone has better advice then "I dont like it" I would appreciate it ^_^ Its easier to improve when someone can actually provide a useful critique with a method or reference for improvement XD

3) I didnt animated anything but the waterfall because if I animated the grass, people would bitch that the hair on the characters wasnt animated, and it escalates from there. The way I saw it, is water can run, without wind blowing. I liked the look, and found it calming and that it helped to even out the image, This will not change.

4) I may add more lighting to the edges of their cheekbones after the comments, Thank you -- Space2 --  for your critique.

5) Thank you all for the advice, I will apply it toward my next projects.

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/31/2006 18:43
that is true - the mountains do require some work - but the face (including the ear) is really nice. Here that ear is mainly bugging me. Also there areno creepy guys who could easily be females without the face hair (sorry for language) :p... zAk

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/31/2006 13:21
i dissagree, i believe that this piece is better than " travelling the lands" in both technical skill and visual interest. also as far as i can tell this one doesnt have copy and pasted mountains :P

zAk (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/31/2006 10:48
Though everyone will hate me - i dont think this is the best piece ever - your travelling the lands is so much better! Im not going to write any more because i cant comment on pieces i dont like when their authors skills are a light year better than mine!! If id rate pieces id give this one 5/5 - but no favs.. i dont like huge pieces... zAk

Aleiav (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/31/2006 10:39

Excellent and impressive work. My only qualm with it is the girl's ear. for some reason it looks flat and 2 dimensional in contrast with everything else. Ears seem to be difficult for you in many aspects, especially elf ears. Is it the lack of a 3D model for elf ears?

Anway, this piece is very well done and impressive. I'm always impressed by you skin shading and dithering.

Craddik (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 8/31/2006 10:20
this is probably the best piece i have ever seen 5/5

E-Magination (Level 3 Sniper) @ 8/31/2006 09:35
6*. Best pixel piece ever.

Da_Masta (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/31/2006 04:58
 This one's so awesomeley awesome! It's big, it's cororful and it's really realistic.Well, it's sorta fantsy, so not really, but it looks realistic.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/31/2006 02:57

Jaeden you are so godly at pixeling hairs :(

Bob_Jones (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/30/2006 13:51
The characters are amazing, good job; my only crit is that the rocks in the background look sloppy and quickly drawn

Flameruler13 (Level 6 Cannibal) @ 8/30/2006 12:59
just like all your work-perfect! but i dont like when only part of an image is animated,its like the are standing perfectly still, and there is no wind in the trees or anything-but the water is running-it would look just as good not animated

7sons (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2006 12:45

gut gemachter Kitsch...

space2 (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/30/2006 12:16
Very niceimage, you had a lot of work on it.
A few crits: the hand of the guy in the right side seems a bit odd... but it might be only me
The hair of the girl is too "flat" I would add some lighting, more  shading

ryumaru (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 8/30/2006 12:06

very, very nice. the only thing i have an issue with is how you shaded the guy on the right's jacket or whatever.

your male drawings have improved greatly from some of your older pieces.

also, dont be afraid to do some things with hard edged highlights, especially on noses and cheekbones. right now all light on the faces is evenly blended.

lunarknight (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 8/30/2006 11:57
Wow, that's beautiful. Awesome job on that guys beard as well. Fav'd.

foss (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2006 11:49
very high quality work!  job don

Huggkruka (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2006 07:59
That's insane. I mean, it wont even fit in the window!

Dark Rogue (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 8/30/2006 07:03
Right when I saw the preview pic, I knew who it was from. Instant 6/6 + fav.

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2006 06:47
This is very nicely.
86 colours is pushing the limit and I`d love to see some of the colours bouncing off other surfaces, such as the hair picking up the cloth colours, to improve the connectivity of all the elements.

Fantastic piece of work. One of my fav's so far!

ManningKrull (Level 9 Executioner) @ 8/30/2006 03:00
Wow, this is stunning! I'm completely in awe of the border, both the design and execution. I think the intense realism of the faces is maybe a little bit at odds with the less realistic hair, but the entire piece is really amazing.

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 8/30/2006 01:18
instant +7 and fav

maloART (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/30/2006 01:01

Wow ... another fantastic art piece you made Jaeden ! I see no flaws in there ! Bravo !


miscdude (Level 1 Private) @ 8/30/2006 00:03
wow...that is amazing.....the one thing i dont like is how make-up-ey they look.....

ZoSo (Level 3 Chief) @ 8/29/2006 22:47
