 Very nice style.

Victor Rojo (Level 10 King Ghidorah) @ 12/28/2010 19:30

In my opinion this piece is not Real Pixel Art, I like it, but this type of pieces confuses many people...

gavinslete (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 11/17/2010 11:17

Very impressive! don't worry about the haters in here I think you have the best style out of just about anyone on here. Keep up the good work!

Rodrigo (Level 2 Peon) @ 8/14/2008 13:38
wow looks like a vector x__x killer technique

randomblink (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/3/2008 19:42
I'm just stunned. This piece is so beautiful.

5L1V3R (Level 1 Private) @ 1/10/2008 18:42
that's weird it hurts my eyes to look at, but its really good.  nice AA

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/28/2007 11:04
my beloved brilliance, naturally :)

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 12/28/2007 09:19
What software are you using? Looks a little bit like Brilliance... :)

Dairy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/28/2007 05:55

Hell, this is pretty cool.

I would like to know is possible to make such a nice picture.

volcom (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/26/2007 16:42
this is a really awesome pixel, but i can hardly stand to look at it since its so ugly.

Jools64 (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 12/23/2007 03:58
its freekin awesome apart from the colour count

Zephiel87 (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 12/22/2007 20:51
The art is great!
The pixel art, not so much. 94 colors is far too many, and even with that many colors a couple areas are left without any anti-aliasing (The right side of his chin, his left cheek, and a few other spots)

MoonPanzer (Level 1 Private) @ 12/22/2007 14:04
That's hot. *fav0red3d*

Fel (Level 4 Ensign) @ 12/22/2007 09:23
I seriously love your work. Hall of Fame imo.

Broli (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 12/22/2007 08:34
Finally this gets in. Now we just wait until the other ones can join in with this one. I still love this piece. Nice colors, very smooth, and just over all great.

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 12/22/2007 07:19
hmmm your work is slowly trickling into the gallery... three more to go :P Really glad this finally got in.

brunocompuit (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/22/2007 06:57
Very, very, very good!!!

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 12/22/2007 05:28


Now we just wait until this hits "Weekly Top Pixels"

Lol it took only a day as well.

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 12/22/2007 04:34
Reminds me of Woody Allen too :-) The colors are perfect and the style itself is just great! Hope your other pixels will get to the gallery soon!

Skull (Level 11 CEO) @ 12/22/2007 03:59
Awesome work - the colour and style of the piece is amazing.

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 12/22/2007 03:01
wow... that took a while, but nice to see it finally accepted.

NotSure (Level 1 Rookie) @ 12/22/2007 01:51
Excellent Work. In fact so good, and so stylised, I had to check to see if you were French (did you move from France?). I do not mind the higher colour count. If you have something to put them to, I say put those colours to work! I would normally say to use the full 128 in your palette, but there is not a pixel there that is not already perfect.

MrMister (Level 1 Depressed) @ 12/22/2007 00:06
94 colours... what a waste

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 12/21/2007 23:05
ZOMG! It's in at last!

sputnik (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 12/21/2007 22:29

Yay! Finally got accepted... I absolutely love your style. Fav'd.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 12/21/2007 22:00 accepted...finally

Broli (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/30/2007 20:14
I don't see why this isn't being accepted, it's a wonderful piece in my opinion. It looks abstract-ish to me and the colors go great together and I just love it.

user (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/24/2007 20:08
i love it>the only thing i dont get is why it isn't in the gallery yet

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/24/2007 13:22
a suggestion: take away the background, make an outline

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/9/2007 08:53
well, thanks :) it always makes me happy when people like my stuff. sorry for seeming a bit snappish. maybe I've been reading too many negative comments on other people's stuff lately.

Krakatoa (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/7/2007 22:24
I don't mean to say you did this Photoshop, it was a compliment as to how good it looks. If I put this on a Photoshop forum and said i did it in Photoshop, they'd believe me straight up.

Actually, faving it.

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/7/2007 10:45

it is. atleast according to the definition I was given here on pixeljoint. ("a discipline by which images are created with pixel-level intent or precision.")

I still don't understand why people are so sceptical. I mean, anyone who has some experience in pixel graphics will recognize which technique is used. I would be very astonished if someone could produce this type of dithering without hand-pixeling it.

Krakatoa (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/7/2007 03:10
... is this even pixel art?

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/23/2007 10:17

yes, I'm cheetah :)

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 9/23/2007 10:06
93 unique colours apparently.
Great pic, love that style! Really good technique too, AA and dithering are top-notch.
Wasn't your old nickname Cheetah?

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 9/20/2007 12:47
hmm he looks like Woody Allen :D... 5/5 and fav'd

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 9/19/2007 17:37

sondre (Level 1 Thug) @ 9/19/2007 05:49
You're right I could have optimized it. But I'm using 3x32 colour ranges for 3 skin tones + 9 for the grey background (if you look at the palette you'll get the idea). However I'm not using all the palette entries, dunno exactly how many unique colours there are (if you want to check, be my guest)

eckered (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/18/2007 16:52
no need to foul the air with your profanities, souly.  i agree that this could have done effectively with less colors, but what i really would like to see is some of those 105 colors being put to use to AA the eyes, and the upper left of his forehead.

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/18/2007 14:34
105* sorry for the typo

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 9/18/2007 14:31
Why the fuck would you use 108 colors on one fucking tone...
That's just dumb, no offense but that's just overkill.
You could have done the same effectivness with only 24-32 colors.

Thumtac (Level 1 Private) @ 9/17/2007 20:00

I like it 5/5

magic1111 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/17/2007 12:30
Hm... 105 colors xD?
Nice art
