Made for Gubbdata 2022! Placed #13.

This is a dating sim style piece of a Driller dwarf at the Abyss Bar, in Deep Rock Galactic.

I recommend running it in VICE, as some colours have been intended to blend together.

So finally done huh.

THe outcome is really cool, love it Chris.

Cheers! Thanks for asking: I wanted to make a piece with no dithering this time around, and the things I was referencing were low-poly 3D with really simple light and textures, which I wanted to keep for this. Ptoing tempted me into blending luma-paired colours together, which are the only places where I used line dithering.
You know... maybe I should make a PETSCII equivalent out of curiosity!

Cool one :) Any reason for going with this chunky, almost PETSCII-like style?

To mates, to darkness, and to making it back alive!

One of the most iconic palettes in pixel art history, if not the most iconic and not for bad reasons.

Rock and stone, brothers! Rock and stone!!!

you did such an amazing job with the shading

Sarahboev (Level 8 Cannelé) @ 7/3/2022 07:05

This turned out so goooooood! Love the overall blocky geometric shapes on the armor!

CELS (Level 7 Lotus) @ 7/3/2022 06:56

Great atmosphere in this piece. The pose is great and I like the combination of big geometric clusters and dithering.

I do not know why I love these clearly awful colors so much. Alone they're terrible choices but the way they are used here looks like magic to me. I would absolutely play this game, win the affections of the Driller Dwarf and convince him to by the bar with me.
