Another go at 8 colors.
I have no idea how the hell this turned out this good.

I was kinda going for the demo-scene feel.

And this on eis the next of you which seems perfect to me. It shows me the incredible level of your color choices together with your style and your proportion choices. If the piece wouldn't have 8 colors it'd be normal, but as it is it's really special and in my eyes perfect.

@ l3mon5&PixelSpy: Since there are only 8 colors, I remember exactly how I went about picking them. I still don't know why it turned out to work so well, but here's the process, for what it's worth:

I started by setting the pink as temporary background, and drew the heads with black, white, and three browns in between. At one point I put a purple smudge to ptoing's face(it is still on his nose) and thought it looked nice as a secondary light of sorts(it was lighter than now). Next I outlined the bodies and noticed that the lightest brown (it's a dirty yellow-ish in fact) seemed good as a neutral base color for suits. I added the gray to shade the bodies with, so they'd appear a different colour from the faces. Notice how I barely managed to keep the gray out of the faces, cause it'd ruin everything. There was a big gap between black and dark brown and I didn't to lighten the black so I included the purple that I kept waiting on ptoing's nose, after darkening it a bit. This all looked nice on pink bg so i decided to keep that color also, even though i knew i'd draw some bg later, so I adjusted the pink lightness to fall between grey and yellow so I could AA or smooth bits with it. The original pink bg is now only kept within the helmets. In the end i added the background making sure i made it very simple so that I don't have to use all the colors everywhere and break the illusion that there were more than 8 colors. I made a think black edge to the picture cause it amplified the subtle and muted hues that I used. Phew.

Great job.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/10/2008 07:39

hehe, the bearty boys. great.

demoscene-feel indeed. delicious palette, loove the reflections and the shininess of the faces though it seems that you've somehow put more effort in yours than in ptöngs..


user
Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 4/10/2008 07:29
Hahah Ptoing and Ilkke in outer space!

And yeah you do look a bit like abe lincoln!

user
jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 4/10/2008 01:32

At first glance I thought it was Abraham Lincoln and Ptoing in space.

user
cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/9/2008 19:13
I could've done this in 4 colors, but this is ok I guess.

user
The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 4/9/2008 18:59
   ILKke, you have a striking resemblance to Abraham Lincoln. Also, I love the almost 70's Charlie's Angels poses, you have going on. It would have been uncanny, if there was a third party. Maybe Jamon, or Helm? : )
   Your pose seems more retracted, while Ptoing's is more  " * thrust, thrust* Ugh, super 'crotch in your face', pose!" Heh. Looks great, though. I like the shine off the glass helmets, and the simple fact that you remembered to place a shadow underneath the characters.

I shouldn't say something anyone has already said, ...but I will , this is an amazing work, only 8 colors?!, and those guys look very funny, LoL excellent work...

user
Adam (Level 9 Major General) @ 4/9/2008 14:52

This is marvelous! You turned out great, but ptoing's head looks a bit strangely connected to the body. Must be because of the bubble. Oh and I think he combs his hair in the other direction.

PixelSpy (Level 5 Captain) @ 4/9/2008 14:50
Good stuff, I had the same question.  How do you pick the right colors?
