Invisible pixels. Cool.

Kaz21 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/18/2007 20:34

Wow.. just.. wow! Fav'd!

Turbo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/2/2007 11:04
The soldiers look great (the standing one has lots of presence), and the subtle dithering on the background does too! If anything, i think that the fallen soldiers get kinda lost without extra volume on their shadows... i realize it's a style choice, but i think it would look better if you added some sort of subtle (black dithering) shading where their shadows are. Also, moving them around a bit (upwards more, and making the sword on the ground go behind the foremost one) would improve some perspective issues.

kakikukeko (Level 5 Detective) @ 3/24/2007 20:39
wow beautiful! I would have liked to see some slight shadows on the corpse too .. but that's a really good entry!! (newer better..)

AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/23/2007 17:15

Uhhh...Losev Those other things that look like new colors are called dithers. They blend to different colours together. But it all uses the same colors. I vote you count again.

And Great Job On This!

Losev (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/23/2007 16:47
6 colors? hmmm i already can count 6 :D, but i like it :\ 5/5 +fav

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 3/21/2007 03:24
The hair on the helmet looks a bit short, but a stunning piece none the less.

Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/19/2007 06:08
Skończ lolu XD

Michas, nie gadaj, że w 3 kolorach nie można było zrobić tego samego o czym powiedziałem :P

Dra_chan (Level 8 Shodan) @ 3/18/2007 16:10
This is beautiful

Vital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/18/2007 14:05
"Rozkrok prawdziwego faceta"-to dlatego fred nie wiedzial :P lol

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 3/18/2007 13:19
Holwy molwy, thats so nice.

bmatrix (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2007 11:59

Świetne, aż dziwi fakt że to tylko 3 kolory :P. Właściwie nie mam żadnych zastrzeżeń, życzę wygranej ;).

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/18/2007 11:17
This is definitely awesome. The mood to me is almost sad. It doesn't seem like the man is celebrating his victory.

klav (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 3/18/2007 05:33
the background dithering is fantastic.  great job.

Sampe (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/18/2007 05:30
I like it. I know you may had tried to make the bodies look like ghosts, but I'd prefer em with some black shades. :] On the other hand, the atmosphere of this piece is nice. 8)

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/18/2007 04:16
Fred, nie chciałem już przesadzać, a miałem tylko 3 dostępne kolory... Zrobiłem tylko chmurki. Nie chciałem już "upychać" tych trupów, a takich małych nie potrafiłem narysować już. Próbowałem. Czemu dziwny? Rozkrok prawdziwego faceta :D
Tak jak już mówiłem. Miałem tylko 3 kolory, więc nie mogłem z murów więcej wydobyć.
Ale dzięki za komenty Fred i magic1111 :)

Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/18/2007 03:28
Klimat po prostu miażdży. Mam tylko 3 zastrzeżenia.

Mianowicie- brakuje mi jakiegoś porządnego tła- np. słońca za chmuryma itp. :P
Więcej trupów- ocena zdecydowanie by się podniosła.
Anatomia stojącego klienta- ten rozstęp nóg dziwny jakiś.

magic1111 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/18/2007 02:52
A mnie się tam podoba. Praca naprawdę ładna i estetyczna. Tylko te ruiny wydają się być troszkę płaskie. Ale i tak 5/5 i fav :*

1sT (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/18/2007 02:22

5/5 this got my vote, favd

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/18/2007 02:17
To się zastanów :P WIem, ja zawsze wydaję się podejżany, ale tak to już jest :P Chciałem te kolory takie zgaszone, żeby się nie wyróżniały jak reszta prac.
Thx, Varock Shade :)

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 3/18/2007 02:09
it looks very very good! i think there wouldn't be much too improve on...

Vital (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/18/2007 01:52
Nie wiem,zambowi proponowalem glos za glos ;P musze jednak przyznac ze ta praca mi sie bardziej podoba...te leżące postacie wydają mi się "podejżane" ale moze jestem przewrazliwiony;)  Jedyne moje zastrzezenie to to ze ten "czerwony" to bardziej brązowy niż czerwony;P

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/18/2007 01:27
Thanks, guys :) I know, that it is open area oversized, but this is my vision and i will don't changed. Sorry for my english.
To jaką mam dać ?

ZZZkodi (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 3/18/2007 01:21
znowu złą miniaturkę zrobiłęś.

ZZZkodi (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 3/18/2007 01:19

                          fav + 7/7

I salute!

BlackFang (Level 6 Hitman) @ 3/17/2007 22:29
Here is my vote, best color choice in my opinion

cyberdash (Level 1 Private) @ 3/17/2007 22:22
I'm amazed. Just awesome.

BruceJuice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 3/17/2007 19:29
large scale pieces always make it easier to bring out detail, and with three colors, ya sorta really need a lot of detail. It definitly helped create shades.

This is just totally freakin' awesome. I love it.

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2007 19:08
holy sweet jesus! this is awesome.

i totally disagree with Christopher though, i don't think it needs to be packed with a bunch of different things just for the sake of make it have less open space. i think it makes it beautiful to not have so much stuff clustered in there.

Genesis (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2007 17:37
I learned a lot of dithering techniques just from looking at this peice. Beautiful job. :D

drZool (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 3/17/2007 16:14
Sweet! So simple and gorgeous! I'd say the colors are ok.

Christopher (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 3/17/2007 15:57

Def. one of my favorite entries if not my favorite so far. Little too much open space though

Tomas (Level 4 Deputy) @ 3/17/2007 15:50
Pretty sweet stuff. I like how the dead bodies look almost like ghosts without the black shade. But your colors, man. I guess your red could be considered red, but just barely. But the "yellow" is not yellow at all. The black is black though. No doubts there. :)

sausage (Level 5 Sniper) @ 3/17/2007 14:45
Sorry to say this but....   THIS OWNS!

zamb (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/17/2007 14:34
Nawaliłeś dith'u ... masa błedów anatomicznych.... targedyja! oj oj oj chyba bedzie 5/5  i fav ;p

Too much of dithering, bad anatomy ...tragically! ;] soo... 5/5 and fav :)
