Tolkien FTW. Excellent stylization here, man. Great palette, too.

It looks like a King's Quest type of game, only many times better. It also reminds me of modern Bible illustrations.

The style is made all the better by the fact that I couldn't even being to comprehend how to accomplish this-be it in Pixel Art or utilizing filters. Heck, I wish I could do this with a filter, let alone by hand.

Don't see much of this style. Very very good. I love it!

user
Forge (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2007 08:06
Very interesting cross-hatch style. I'm not even entirely sure how one would do something like that.  Very impressive.

simply beautiful image and great techniques!

This one is amazing

5/5 ;)

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 9/28/2007 17:54

That's great. I love the style in this, the thing is great. An instant win.

The only thing that kind of seems odd are those 3 stick things in the lower left hand corner. They just don't look like they fit in my opinion.

hooray good stuff

Wow, looks like an actual watercolor paint canvas. Awesome job.

I don't understand a word of what the two below me just said, but this is amazing. I don't understand why it hasn't been accepted yet, high color count or no.

Hmm...uzywasz narzedzi "wspomagajacych powstawanie tych obrazkow czy zezasz wszystko pixel po pixelu?Bo jesli twoje prace sa "podrasowywane",to nie dziw sie ze wzbudza to niezadowolenie wsrod uzytkownikow,i dalsze wstawianie prac raczej nie ma sensu...Generalnie fajna stylistyka,co ciekawe pomyslalem o tworczosci Tolkiena zanim przeczytalem opis pracy:D.Zapraszamy na pix.art.pl -strona zdecydowanie dla poczatkujacych i nieobeznanych,ale warto zebys od czasu do czasu podzielil sie jakas wskazowka;).Twoja ksywke kojaze,mimo ze nigdy nie wnikalem zbyt gleboko w dokonania sceny.Pozdro;)

Jeśli prześledzisz resultsy parties od ok '98 gdzieniegdzie się pojawiam - jako DKL, dakael lub darklight. Niestety rzadko... Lubię czasem podziobać coś w ośmiu bitach, ale z czasem krucho. Łatwo zapalam się do różnych projektów, ale w większości nie z mojej winy nic z nich nie wychodzi i potem to wszystko leży u mnie na HDD - vide "Call DOG".

Kurcze, bardzo podoba mi się styl tej pracy. Masz świetną technikę. Tak nagle z ziemi wyszedłeś? Bo widać, że jesteś starym, dobrym grafikiem, ale ja wcześniuej Twoich prac nie widziałem... Używasz bardzo fajnych kolorów, przez co Twoje prace wydają się być takie pełne i naturalne :) Naprawdę zaskoczyły mnie Twoje grafiki :) Są świetne.

user
dakael (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/4/2007 09:49
Here are 192 colors used. Palette has more of them but they aren't used. As I remember ;-)

user
1sT (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/4/2007 06:28
Stickman @ 238 colours

Paint style effect. Love it! (how many colours?)

I don't know what the other entries we're like...but that's definitely 1st place material. Great work :D

user
EyeCraft (Level 3 Stalker) @ 9/3/2007 23:19
Awesome style you went for on this. Really has that blobby, nebulous oil painting feel to the colours, mixed with a canvas/brushstroke texture. It has a couple of ambiguous areas, like that yellow part behind the trunk of the tree, and the shading on the trunk is kind of weird but for the most part this is great stuff!

Great piece, has a very nice mood to it.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 9/3/2007 19:47
You should have been the winner. No iffy, techniques or suspicious pixels anywhere. Kudos.

user

Amazing... almost hard to believe its 100% pixelart....

user

That's really cool. The style is just amazing.
