finally submitting this one..

yes it's an homage to steve purcells ingenious monkey island (no need to post references everybody knows =)

started around xmas 2005 as entry for the pixel competition of the pirate themed tum2005 demoparty.. only submitted a very unfinished party-version there (see http://www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-wie_passend_du_kaempfst_wie_eine_kuh!_party.png), nevertheless got 1st price =P

this (pre)final version was done over the last weeks.. kinda 99% finished, i might invest a few minutes into the bone at the bottom right and into the waterfall behind guybrush

working stages (312!) can be found here: http://www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-wiepassend_stepsanim_fast.gif

thanx to ben2theedge for the hint concerning the ship floating over guybrush's head / the sword

EDIT: added a little splash on the waterfall.. the 100th fav edition =P

EDIT²: edit in the waterfall-area again: added some waves this time

reference: hell, no =D

tools: grafx2

 Coolio! This art piece is amazing :3

And I'm glad you provided the working stages, now I know that pieces like this can be done if you work on each element one by one. :)

I just HAVE TO fave this! The nostalgy, incredible technique and the composition is brilliant, everything is there. Well, almost everything, I am missing Stan, but that is just a nitpick.

@Tomic
Haha, that's the exact reason why i'll never post it here!
I'd rather meet my dentist than wasting my precious time with some pixeln00bs! ;)

Seriously, that pic have gone through way maaaaany edits through the years and I think it's just 99.9% pure pixelling in the end! ;P
...and since this year's TUM theme is "space",  I could change the palette, flip it and submit it again!!! :D

user
fydo (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/12/2008 01:05
Wow. This is awesome. Just beautiful. Great work.

user
skan (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/11/2008 07:30
