   Yes, please explain how this piece is damn near identical to a still to a scene in the movie "Princess Mononoke"?

   An anonymous user tipped us off with the proof and I put together an animation just to show how it's pretty much the same picture, except color reduced, and pixeled over a bit. HERE'S A LINK TO THE ANIMATION.

   Pain, this is one out of several times, that this has happened despite several warnings to cease ripping. Your activity here is now being discussed, over whether we should allow your usage of the gallery to continue. Some have tried to stick up for you, in that you are a legitimate pixel artist, but trying to pull the wool over our eyes in some of your pieces is the last straw. Just sending this message to you so you are fully aware of what may happen in the near future...

   As for now, I'm sending this back for revision, no ifs, ands or buts about it...

Hate to use such an overused quote,but great minds think alike :D

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 12/10/2008 15:06
fawful: my toughts exactly :D ...

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 10/13/2008 04:37
That is cool,my kind of thing as well,faces inbeded in trees are always cool.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/6/2008 04:19
thank you all for kind words ...

Nora (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/5/2008 06:00
Twice third, congratulations! Love the heads in the tree, you put them in really subtle.
Nice colour choice too.

Alenius (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/26/2008 13:41
What.. the.. hell...!

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/26/2008 10:17
Beautiful, just beautiful.
IMO it looks like it's underwater, with the light shining in from above, but that's just me.
But, to quote xelados, holy shit.
It looks fabulous.

xelados (Level 1 Seaman) @ 3/26/2008 08:44
Holy shit. o_o;

Warwolt (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/26/2008 03:17
Oh my GOD, that is just evil to showcase!

Kaz21 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/18/2007 20:56
Wow this is great!

mrduke (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 7/2/2007 10:37
I like this alot! It got depth!

meherbade (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/1/2007 00:40

Miumau0 (Level 6 Made) @ 6/27/2007 12:39
16 colors? Fantastic. Leaves could be dark, because light is "behind" them. Like silhuette. Many faces, they look just so great. Im going to fav this.

D-Puff (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 6/22/2007 08:19
same as Gorli

Gorli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/27/2007 06:39
It´s amazing

Commodore (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 5/16/2007 11:49
I like it. Maybe the tree colour is a bit too green.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/16/2007 07:10
How about a WIP, please?                        

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 5/6/2007 02:35
wow, very cool

rajkosk8 (Level 5 Detective) @ 5/4/2007 02:31
beautiful piece love the mood that radiets toward my brain cells hehehe GREAT

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/3/2007 05:19
Amazing work - the composition is the strong point here. Not that restricting to 16 colors and achieving such a nice look is a small thing either.

mikkaello (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/2/2007 10:17

no need for explanation=remarkable!!!

Larwick (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 5/2/2007 09:08
Pwnage composition. Did you not use a reference? It's sweet. Aint so keen on the colours or scrappy dithering though, like on the sky, the teal and pale purple colours are very offputting for me.

khorin (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 5/2/2007 06:28
I can imagine a chorus singing during this scene. Excellent work you have here!

styler (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/1/2007 01:36

wow, this looks amazing!

true artwork man!

ceddo (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 4/30/2007 14:41
Those vibrant colors you used just make me a happier person.

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 4/30/2007 06:09
What a texture it has, beautiful

Mil (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/30/2007 01:55
Wonderful work! I love the way you did those heads, and the sky is perfect.

pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/29/2007 22:06
thank you all ... yes, there are 2 pieces missing on purpose, top right and left bottom ...

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 4/29/2007 21:42
Excellent work! There seems to be a peice missing on the top right corner

kakikukeko (Level 5 Detective) @ 4/29/2007 17:48
wow so impressive... the top right corner looks strange , except that, it's amazing..  the sky looks so real..

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/29/2007 14:59
Jeez, another awesome noob. We're under attack and losing o.O

j.k., awesome pixel.

Vidd (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2007 14:37
At first I only noticed one face.
That is powerful!

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 4/29/2007 14:26
Really cool tree! The composition is really powerful, with the big contrast between the background and the tree. I agree with Ilkke though, some parts of the foliage look a bit undefined, but I guess that's because of the lack of time... :)

psycore (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2007 13:56
awesome, i luv the contrast.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/29/2007 13:04
A bit messy but oh so great!

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/29/2007 13:03
Nice setup...  
@Shawn - you are welcome!  

born (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2007 13:03
simply amazing... design, composition, perspective, details, depth, lights, colors, texturing and everything at all. It looks very realistic. U can be proud of urself, cuz not many pixelartists in the whole world would be able to pixel so tasty piece. respect

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 4/29/2007 12:44 beautiful!

Jellysauce (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/29/2007 12:27
you seem to be missing a piece in the top right hand corner but its still gorgeous.

Varock Shade (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/29/2007 12:07
can you teach me how to make such pixels...?

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 4/29/2007 12:02
Another legend coming from the same place as Jamon and Ilkke. I must visit this country. Amazing job.

MichaS (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/29/2007 12:01
The best!   

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/29/2007 11:44

jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/29/2007 11:43

Liman (Level 3 Chief) @ 4/29/2007 11:32
