Yeah, so it's supposed to be cyber-alexander's profile.
Don't ask me how I came up with the idea.
This piece was originally also made in 32 greyscales, like my previous two posts, but later i coloured it to make it more intelligible.
I think it's in 64 colours.

 @Friend: well the basic workflow was like for this image:

It's very impractical in the sense that it takes forever to clean up.

Maybe my favorite pixel art piece ever ^_^  I wish I knew your process in making this

I love this piece. The black space really makes it come out. It's a like a hologram representation, reminds me of a Pendragon book I read.

amazing !!. I like your style. and remember me the Jigsaw tramp to Amanda (in the film Saw I)

I guess this is halfbrite? Quite nice, tho i like skeleharp best.

Nope. This piece was done in Brilliance2.0 on Amiga, years ago.
But I agree that promotion is the closest thing on PC to Amiga pixel tools, and that is a good thing.

jmgandalf (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/27/2007 06:41

Just wondering, did you use promotion for this?

Amazing choose of colours, btw :)

Amazing. Composition is greate.

I'm so sick of people preaching colour restrictions. It's a stylistic choice, not a rule. If it looks good (like this) keep it the way it is. The author CHOSE to include so many colours. Get over it.

this style would have had a much better potential with this if you restricted to fewer colours.

Josiah (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/26/2007 17:41

although it looks good, it wasn't all hand pixeled :(

but still it's very nice

Evil-Ville (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/26/2007 15:08
Nice colours and interesting technique.

1sT&Shawn: Even if it isn't 100% pixel art you should show some respect and not post useless comments like that.

1sT (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/26/2007 14:39
Oh man, u sucks. This stuffs is not pixel.

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 2/26/2007 13:45
This is pure bullshit.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/26/2007 13:43
As I said, it was coloured later, which I admit is NOT the usual way things are done. If ppl think this is cheating, I'll replace this with the original greyscale version. Please read my comment on SkeleHarp if you have doubts about this being pixelling. I'm sorry to have caused this much controversy.

phob (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 2/26/2007 13:00
this isn't pix by pix !

JayCain (Level 1 Intern) @ 2/26/2007 12:46
It's very original, along with your other two posts. I like the colors in this one.

Mini (Level 5 Sniper) @ 2/26/2007 12:42
man you have some awesome work

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/26/2007 11:37
And I left the black border around it cause it's very dark, so that it comes out a bit.
