Sorry, but this looks obviously color-reduced.  None of your other work even comes close.

Amazing detail. Simply wonderful.

 Lol man this is Amazing...!

j.negrón (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/28/2009 17:11

this looks very real!, i don't like the background, but this is great, and agree with kurozaki!

Kurozaki (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/6/2009 18:26
Hat i doubt any of us care what you think about the band his work is amazaing linkin park is a fine band but were here to talk pixel art not bangs so cactus i suggest you take a look at your own work before complaining and assueing this pixel artist of ripping something if he traced it will he still did a good job

Cactus_Hat (Level 1 Thug) @ 8/1/2008 05:21
Im not stupid so I dont fall for that you did it. Also, Linkin Park sucks, I puke when iI hear them.

gorgothon destroyer (Level 1 Depressed) @ 4/16/2007 18:53
not a big linkin park fan, but this is just amazing!

AndyOaks (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/21/2006 04:15
Great stuff! The focusing is very nicely done.

Xanatos (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/8/2006 17:03
It's the lips, they should be pinker, not red, kinda looks like lip stick. But nice job.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/17/2006 09:57

 Wow, how many people don't like LP? Us fans have to stick together lol.

  Thanks for the coment dude. :)

Shark (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/16/2006 15:17
hate linkin park, at first i thought this was ripped.  i checked out the devart page and it seemed kosher.  great work.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 3/12/2006 01:10
  Must be something about the mouth i think.

mutantenemy (Level 5 Serial Killer) @ 3/9/2006 09:32
looks a tad womanly but the realism is amazing!

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/5/2006 02:56
  Ok, what don't you like about them?

Blood_wave (Level 2 Mercenary) @ 1/27/2006 21:10

i dont like the purple lips and glasses or hair

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/11/2005 04:54
 Chester the.....riiiight...thanks for the coment anyway lol. ^_^

Blood Stained Hurricane (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/10/2005 20:58

Hey look its chester the molester.

JK what a cool pixel you obviously have talent.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/18/2005 11:03

I usesd a refernece I found on the internet and traced the outline of the head, that's all.  It's from the song "Numb".  I don't have the photo on this PC as I'm living in england now and the old PC I had was in Spain, but I'm sure with a bit of searching on the internet you'll find the reference I used.  Being close to the original was my aim lol so personally I don't think that'll give acurate resultsz.  I can do nothing more to prove I made it with no filters ect  I didn't go for a "rip affect" lol, just an acurate copy of the photo which I do have to say worked quite well imo.

  I too really detest rippers, fakers, etc and have come across many all over the web, but I've not found any on this site and I find the security quite good.  Anyway, I'm going to drop the subject now. I know I'm right, it'd be stupid lying to myself as I want to improve. Bye

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/16/2005 15:18
 just to be sure, please post reference picture used. If you tell me you were just watching at the screen at the video clip on pause and making this, you're going to have to make me do two things I don't want to do. First of all, I'm going to go rent a LP dvd. I don't want to do that. Second it will mean that I WILL find the frame in question, overlay it to your work and see how close it is. I don't want to do that either. But just to be sure.

It's not that I'm jealous that this is good and I am trying to steal your thunder. It's that I really don't like cheaters and liars.

Please indulge me.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/16/2005 15:04
 fair enough. if these are real steps ( and if they're not, well there's no point to discuss this further anyway ) then I retract and apologize. There's lots of inconsistencies in the dithering that follow the reference too closely. The 'image rip' look is something you want to avoid even if you're doing honest work.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/16/2005 05:06
If you're still not convinced here're the steps I took in makin this.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/16/2005 05:02
Open it in paint, zoom in and you'll see.

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/15/2005 16:44
 whoa, pixel joint rip control is surprizingly lax. My money's on picture, posterized, redithered. Badly. I know I sound like a jerk, but a community is built on honesty, and this don't look honest.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/12/2005 14:38
 hehee, thanks but no-one can ever be too good, we all must try to improve the most possible :).

cryofecstasy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/22/2005 16:52
AH! youre too good.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/14/2005 09:48

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/13/2005 19:28

Jealousy? Haha. Wha-ever :)

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/5/2005 04:23

Yep, must be lol,   good to see you like Linkin Park aswell ^_^.  Let us rejoice, LP fans

Zoomrix (Level 1 Intern) @ 7/27/2005 15:52
Seriously, it seems like the only place where you mention LP, people go "YEAH!" is the ... Seriously I don't know what it is... jelousy, maybe?

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/28/2005 06:54

hmmm, looks more like an english teacher I had lol, just like him.  What do people have against Linkin Park anyway? :(  Awwww, poor LP

  Thanks for the coments by the way :D  

Kirra @ 6/27/2005 06:40
 It does kind of look like elton john in a way. Great peice though. I like it alot. I agree with istvan though. Lincoln park is a rollercoaster. lmao. You are really good at pixel art though

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/25/2005 02:42

  :D , thanks a lot for the really nice coment :).  I´m glad that you like it so much :).

  Quote ".Keep up the awesome work."

I wish to improve though, not stay the same level hehe, thanks again :D.

Organs (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 6/24/2005 15:25
 wow,that's amazing...This has to be one of the best,if not the best pixel portrait i've ever seen.It shows you have much talent.Keep up the awesome work.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/5/2005 09:36

¡STVAN :- Glad you are mature enough to rise ove arguements :)  I saw the video about those guys saying 'Linkin Park are a rollercoaster!', but it was late andI didn´t quite get what it was about ll, that and I´m not very good at comprehnding what people mean some times :S hehe :P. Quote " Now, if only you put your powers of pixel skills towards good not evil! ;)"   Hahahaha, but how can when the Dark side is sooo strong??!!! Muahahahahahaaaaa

alotank :  Quote "He looks like Elton John o_O" a way I suppose......ish lol ;D

halotank (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 6/5/2005 00:26
 He looks like Elton John o_O

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/4/2005 23:13

Believe me, purple monkey, I dislike Linkin Park so much that it took a lot from me to rise above petty musical arguements and just focus on the artwork! Check out that link by the way, the videos are hilarious -'Linkin Park are a rollercoaster!'

Neat little process animation there! Now, if only you put your powers of pixel skills towards good not evil! ;)

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/4/2005 13:11

¡STVAN Awwwwww, don´t you like Linkin Park?? :( You can´t not like them, they´re great!!! lol

 I have made a little animation of all the steps I took to make this if anyone´s interested or you can just look at it through this link to my dev art user page :).

Quote: "Some bits look really awesomely-photo-quality-esque"   Thanks, that makes me feel really good as it´s coming from you ^_^

 I´ll try to stay well far away from pillow shading in the future, although it must have some use right?....maybe not lol

Zoomix :- quote You have some misspellings in the description  "Chestewr Bennington, lead singer of Link Park."

-Nooooo it´s the end of the world, will Chester ever forgive me??? lol ^_^ well I hope so hehe.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 6/4/2005 01:59

Quite a detailed piece though. I'll have to check out the w.i.p for this one. Some bits look really awesomely-photo-quality-esque. The only thing that annoys me is the teeth, they currently look quite flat, almost pillow shaded in some areas.

Nice work though- just dont expect me to listen to them!

Zoomrix (Level 1 Intern) @ 6/3/2005 14:52
I love this piece. Chester rocks! And so does Linkin Park along with them. One critique though: You have some misspellings in the description  "Chestewr Bennington, lead singer of Link Park." = "Chester Bennington, lead singer of Linkin Park."

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/2/2005 13:18

Thanks for the coments gys,

fr0st (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 6/1/2005 13:18

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 6/1/2005 11:39
Saw you really go to town on this puppy in the forum.  The hair turned out great.

purple_monkey (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 6/1/2005 11:13
