Well this will be a big image of a face, make with 2x Squares and with other dithering forms.

How references i took the work of exocet and Monsoon2D for the dithering techiniques.

Also is my first work using all the time promotion(i use for the moment the default promotion palette ).

And well not much to say more, 11 colors, and i hope the finish image not have more than 16.

 This is really awesome and eye-catching (no pun intended lol). I love the colours and just how much sharp detail you've managed, great work! :D

Absolutly amazing!!! It doesn't look like a pixel art but I magnified it. It is!!! Great work!!!

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 11/25/2006 11:31
Yes is all pixelled, if you make zoom you can view very well the pixels and 2x squares etc..

The lips coming soon.....

Is this really pixeled?

Its fucking awsome.

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 11/21/2006 05:58
Yes this! :)

Thanks all for the comments,

About the image will be a face of a fantasy girl with a big sexy brightnes lips, and a little hand of mysterius/terror :).

For the moment and i not have much, only the complete eye and part of lips, and well im in exams etc.. and cant work much but well i hope put a lips in other time.

I have a structure of the face, and i making the face in parts, eye, nose,lips... and put in the face. After i make a dithering forms in the face and compact all the pieces. After create details, lights and other things.

This pixel-art is all an experiment !!!

I think you're referring to the dithering competition arranged by DHS a few years ago, which was a really original idea!

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 11/20/2006 13:53
Yes i like!

I look in google and find a good dithering forms of you exocet, i not remember now the site, but is a image beetween pink/turkish/blue for a challenge in a site of amiga ¿correct? and you made a great dithering forms and win!! and when i view this and the work of another good pixel-artist Monsonn2D that use a good dithering i think...

If i make a pixel art using the exocet dithering forms and monsoon2D dithering in 2x square, and thinks the result will be interesting.

Wow, awesome. The stark contrast is what really makes this piece. Frankly, I don't think this needs any revision. C: /fav'd

Yeah, I really like it. It has such a refreshing light, I can't really explain it. I'll be eagerly waiting for the final outcome.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 11/20/2006 11:14
Unsurprisingly I quite like the dithering ;)
Lighting and colours are really cool too, it's very promising for the rest of the head...

Corel (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 11/20/2006 09:35
yeah, i really like the technique used here and the choice of color. keep it up!

Equinoxx (Level 3 Stalker) @ 11/20/2006 01:05
this looks seriously stylin. hard to tell anything without getting the big picture, but for an avatar it's cool

skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 11/19/2006 12:24
wow! i think the whole face will be awesome!
