This is my submission for the weekly challenge!  It was really exciting to create this piece.  And a huge challenge.

This is Jareth and Sara looking over the Labyrinth near the beginning of the movie.  It was a good scene to pick, both because of the really neat visuals, and because it's pretty monochromatic. 

And I did this all without tracing!

Here's the reference picture:

I chose you as one of my favorites for this week contest. You made a very clean piece of art, and it's full of atmosphere. Congratulations!!!

Winner all over.  Wonderful movie and great execution. 

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/25/2008 14:56
Should I?  I was thinking that people would overlook it and/or not know what it was if I just cut out a piece of the picture.  Thanks for the comment!  I'll give it some thought :D

Beautiful job, one of my favorite movies.

purpletree (Level 6 Manager) @ 1/25/2008 12:21
this is really nice! fived and faveed

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/25/2008 11:12
Yay :3  Yeah, I can come off as pretty girly and dopey to most people, but I have a good eye for detail and a lot of experience under my belt.  I'm just totally lazy most of the time.

I'm glad you like this piece and that it seems to be liked so well in general.  I had fun doing it!

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 1/25/2008 10:41
This is a wonderful piece and is a most wonderful pixel from you because...

...when you joined PJ and added your silly butterfly avatar, the overall member input in the queue was to not allow in into the gallery. Simple, girly, retarded, blah, blah, blah.
However when I asked you to modify it to PJ size your attitude and understanding somehow told me you would not be average. I then zoomed into your avatar and got a good gut feeling.

...this pixel proves me correct and hope you do really well this week. Vote reserved.

Yay you left her pants out in your version XD very beuatiful, the pixel art I mean :P

DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 1/25/2008 09:11
God this movie rocked, I saw it only recently at some random girl's house. You've really captured a sense of atmosphere with this scene. Stunning job!

Hdan (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 1/25/2008 09:01
Thats simply amazing, very good palette

Blu (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/25/2008 08:27

*Wow*. That is really awesome. Great job on the people and with all the little tiny details... Very nice. ^^ Now I'm going to have to watch that movie again...

macula (Level 6 Hitman) @ 1/25/2008 08:26
Oh wow great work! That was also a great movie.

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 1/25/2008 08:04
it's very impressive, especially not being at all a trace.  there are some rather jaggy bits, but those can be overlooked on the grander scale.

Marina (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 1/25/2008 07:43
OMGGGGGGGGGG i saw this movie when i was a childdd, i love it! You did a really nice work... its awesome :D

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 1/25/2008 07:34
Heh, I loved that movie, though I'm a guy, and ashamed to admit it. The fox character who rode the dog was my favorite. Your pixeled version looks good, and is already a contender for a place.

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/25/2008 07:20
Oh!  You're right.  Here's a larger version, with the star visible.

And I'm glad you like it :3

Equilibrix (Level 5 Captain) @ 1/25/2008 07:12
Very nice piece, I like it! Faving.. But I can't see that stray star in the ref picture, therefore I would omit that pixel :-)

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/25/2008 07:04
i forgot to mention tht it's a nice piece

littlesapphire (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 1/25/2008 07:01
In the ref picture, there's a single stray star, and I just couldn't leave it out :D  and thanks, I didn't even notice I left the G out.

Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/25/2008 06:47
is tht a stray pixel in the middle of the sky?
also add a <g> to your ref pic
