   I couldn't not submit anything on the month of my B-day for craps-sakes. That, and I just wanted to let every body know that I'm not dead yet....Any who, This little sucker was inspiration from my older brother. Ever since I've lost cable and internet, I've had the hugest artist block. I've been out of the pixel scene for a while, so there is a little rust in this piece. One day I just asked my brother what I should draw. He told me to draw a wizard with an orb...and so I did....Bear with me:

Known issues:

* Yes, I do know that the hand is still black and white while the wizard's head is colored in different flesh tones, as this was intended.(though I may change it if too many people have an issue with it)...The same goes with the fact that his arm or robe isn't visible.

*If you notice, through out the piece, it was meant to be pixeled in geometric shapes...just a lil' fyi

* I also already know that it suffers from dither-ea, and that there are a lot of colors in this sucker...I'm a still learning...

* This was all done in M.S. Paint

*Also, if you notice, there is a reflection of the hand( in demon form, I guess) inside the orb. Inside the orb, the reflected hand's middle finger is out of perspective from the actual wizard's finger. The middle finger is kinda sprawled lower than the knuckle. I wish I had some type of reference to show you guys, but I have none at the moment...

* The final weird thing that I noticed was the strange fact that this is my third piece with an enlarged view of the human hand...I hope I don't have a fetish for hands.

Aside from these notes, I'm pretty proud of it, though as of late, some folks here may blow this thing out of the water. Its all good though. Once again, tell me what cha' think. Love it, or hate it, cuz I'm willing to listen...

Take it easy...

Really like this for how it's confusing me when I look at it whilst I can look in detail and appreciate the work done on it. Nice piece!

This is quite possibly the most amazing pixel art, or art of ANY medium, that I have ever seen. I could comment on how great certain aspects are, but it is difficult to admire absolutely everything in words.

Cilein (Level 5 Irish Elk) @ 11/10/2010 15:27

Inspiring, I could keep coming back to this and never lose interest :)

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 12/5/2007 09:16
Heh, thanks, though I've seen other pieces on here that blow it out of the gallery. Check out Bulought's work, and you'll see what I mean...

harmless (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/5/2007 02:57
I've been trying to say what I like about this, but I can't come up with any sensible sentences. My absolute favourite and I believe nothing will touch this for a long time on this site.

ClosEnough (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/22/2007 19:27
this is absolutely beautiful!

dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/27/2007 02:23

That's great, but I know one issue:
Actualy, Oz wasn't a wizard.

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/11/2007 18:16

You'r a master, no ones better than you, point.

Mullet (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/25/2006 06:46
Amazing. My favorite part isn't just the composition or the knowledge of lighting and tone, but the textures. Great used of dithering and other patterns like the squares.  Very good indeed.

OldSkoolLink (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/18/2006 15:15
Congratulations , you fucking deserve it!

buloght (Level 6 Centaur) @ 10/18/2006 12:52
A worthy winner indeed
