Was suprised to see it in the showcase. For me it is as done as weeks before. Must say it turned out really good. Nice work jalonso!

Like how the sail and the wood on the boat turned out. as well as the water


ElectroNico (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/11/2008 05:36

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 1/10/2008 22:28
it is good to drop sometimes and say "it looks good" to someone else.

ScarredShadow (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2008 21:53
Oh. The preview just doesn't do this justice. This is amazing.

AtomicMushroom (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/10/2008 19:56

That was the most epic WIP ever. Great piece!

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/10/2008 16:08

Clap!! Clap!! Clap!! Amazing scene, a little piece of isometric caribbean.  An instant fav!

Vic (Level 5 Sniper) @ 1/10/2008 09:44
Don't know what else I could say about this piece.

Gas 13 (Level 9 Boss) @ 1/10/2008 09:35
I'm impressed how it was reworked several times :) Enjoyed the ghost ship and the one with lack of dither. The final result is wonderful. Inspiring.

FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/10/2008 09:31
Very very very very cool ! Good iso is rare here, and this one is a pearl.

countach (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 1/10/2008 08:45
Holy cow! Incredible.

Fenne (Level 3 Stalker) @ 1/10/2008 08:25
It's amazing! I really love it!

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/10/2008 08:16
Wow that is fantastic!

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 1/10/2008 08:06
you don't think you could have picked a better preview image tho?

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 1/10/2008 08:05
I smell a number one ranked FOREVER here.

Large, whimsical, colorful, isometric, painterly, storytelling, for pixeldam.....and not to mention top-notch execution.......

it's now I wish i rated pieces more often sos I could give you more than 7 stars.

MashPotato (Level 7 Underboss) @ 1/10/2008 06:34
A true testament of what can be achieved with Patience, Perseverance, and Pure-love-of-Pixelling   Wonderful work, Jal!

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/10/2008 05:44
beauuuuuutifull!!!! (now animate it! )

Packrat (Level 7 General Manager) @ 1/10/2008 03:07
*jawdrop* It is brilliant.

Emanu (Level 3 Chief) @ 1/10/2008 01:57
wow, thats immensely impressive!

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/9/2008 23:22
Wow jalonso, it's really beautiful! I totally fell in love with this piece! There's so much detail, I would spend hours staring into the picture and still don't get all of it! And only 29 colors? How could you do such an amazing piece with this low color count? I try to think of any crit, but can't find one! It's just incredible piece of pixel art! All hail jalonso

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/9/2008 23:13
Jal concratulations for patience - this is what every pixel artist must have as much as possible :)

About piece - I don't want to comment much, because all your ISO works are as source of inspiration for me :) For me was very interesting how you put so nice peoples together with building in so small size, but with your combination they look as they are in right size - well done !

Vertigo-Zero (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/9/2008 22:15
You finally finished it :D gotta love it :) 5/5

AdamPlays (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/9/2008 21:55
They can learn new tricks, but it takes them twice as long. 

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/9/2008 19:58
The piece in itself is wonderful in all aspects, but the work you put in greatly overshadows it. Honestly it's arguable you made two or three completely different pixels in the creation of this final product. That's some dedication jal!

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 1/9/2008 19:55
wow jalonso thats cute

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/9/2008 19:16
Yes, yes and YES! You have managede to get me to like isometric pixelart. :D
I don't really know what to say about it except that the best about the picture is prbably the choice of palette and the worst part, that can be worked on a little bit more is the two dogs. They look like two sprites ore something with their lack of shading. Especially the one near the water...
Congrats for the effort! ...and yeah, a whole barrel of respect!

flaber (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/9/2008 19:10
couple of things still could be cleaned.
like BOB mentioned the sails. I still think they are too blue. But you gave your reason as to why.
Lots of progress and improvement was made on this.
can really see the effort put into developing something new, and something past your previous talent.
like I said, still some places here and there. but eh, lets no worry about it.

great job again.
i really do quite like the amount of revisions and learning you did with this project. Rather than just cranking off another image, you wanted to learn and develop yourself with this. I quite like that.
its a keeper.

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 1/9/2008 19:08

It's finally done!  Banzai!

I see some pillow shading here and there (like on the seals), but I love how nicely unified the palette is.

Jimmy Bojangles (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/9/2008 18:59
This is amazing. The amount of detail put into this is stunning.

soda (Level 10 President) @ 1/9/2008 18:54
Amazing stuff.  Worked on it so long, definitely payed off. 

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 1/9/2008 18:08
After staring at this for a while, I've found something that might look better if you adjusted it... that platform where the barrels are is so light, that it looks like it's kind over the fence that really in front of it. Because of that, that one section seems a little odd. Removing the orange shades from it would probably make a good difference.

Aside from that crit, I like this a lot. :) There's a lot of awesome texture and activity going on here, and your dedication to this piece is an example that all pixel artists should try to fallow. :)
