Ok, you definitely know how to use dithering. Wow.

Amazing background and colors, I love this, it's so abstract

i'm not fond of the green around in his mouth, but other than that this is fantastic.

I like the way you've got depth into the greenish structure on the right, looks very organic. Dithering is very good as well. However, I think you could have done more with the colours. Right now you've got three seperate monochrome areas on your image. A redish face, a grey/blueish body and headphones, and a blue/greenish background on the right side. These areas are just a little too seperated for my taste, if you know what I mean.

Yes i also think the same, sorry my english is not very good, and think is possible the words are bad interpreted. I compared thats is incredible good dithering that is imposible made to hand to say the work made here is a good example of dithering pixel by pixel.

Sorry if my words nor are the corrects.

matriax > Looks very much hand dithered to me.

matriax (Level 5 Sniper) @ 5/8/2007 07:58
For any reason remember me the works of Henk Neiborg, mmm the dithering....

Good Work and the dithering looks too good for made pixel by pixel, i think how said ikke the aa and dith is perfect.

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/8/2007 01:06
This is all very good. Your dithering and AA are perfect.

Allow me to point out a couple of things that you could do better.

First, I already mentioned pillow shading. This is a matter of choice, some ppl don't like to see it, some just love to do it. It gives everything a well-defined plastic look that can look great in games, for instance. You could try to make some game sprites or backgrounds or mockups etc.

The only other thing that can be improved are colors. This picture has better colors than "different view" and "uglukk" because, for instance, in the green spread you have yellow highlights and bluish dark shades. In "uglukk" especially, all color ranges are too pure, so they don't mix well into a single scene. The greens are too green, the greys are too grey. You can offset single colours here and there to make the picture look much richer, and you can make the darker tones of all spread lean slightly towards the same colur to make the 'ambient color'. Take a look at my avatar which was done in greyscale and then I changed the colors a bit adding a bit of yellow, purple or green here and there. The best way to learn about color mixing is to enter some of the weekly challenges here on pixeljoint.
These are not neccessarily flaws, but mere suggestions. I like your work a lot and hope to see more of it soon. Also, Amiga is the fucking best computer for pixelling. Keep it up!

Thanks. I took some time to finish this one. I sat in front of the computer for allmost 32 h non-stop doing the finishing touch up befor the deadline at the demoparty. :P
