New to Pixel Joint but I've been doing pixel art for quite some time.  Several years actually...
Azure Solaris will be my introductory piece here.
I've worked on this off and on for a couple months and finally finished it back in the summer of 2007.  This is the original piece and it's done only in mspaint.
It took me awhile to mathematically and visually find the right blend of colors so I could properly capture the aurora or flame aspect.

   Hello Icleus. I awaited your response to my questioning of the piece. I've heard nothing as of yet, so unfortunately, I'm going to have to send this piece back for revision, on suspicious reasons of it being non-pa. It's beatiful, yes;but pixel art: meh, I'm straddling the line with it right now. So many random pixels, and very little control, keep screaming "index job." Just know that  we don't mean to deter you from submitting more art here, just to place wips and whatnot to prove the doubters with highly detailed pieces like this, else great pieces like this will be sent back. We can be strict sometimes, but we mostly try to be fair.

Sending back for revision...

There is no way this is hand pixelled.

It looks like you took digital art and indexed it down to 25 colors or something. Doesn't look like pixel art at all.

This almost looks like it isnt pixelart (compliment). That is amazing!

user
Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 7/19/2008 05:29
I don't really like it, way too blurry.
And, what badassbill said.

Nice. Would be more impressive if it wasn't index pixeling.

No crits. This is breath taking work.

I really like this, although I have some suspicions.
Do you have any progress of this picture?

user
FrostPumpkin (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 7/18/2008 06:43
That's awesome, but that the sort of piece I don't see nothing interesting in doing it in Pixel Art especially...
Honestly, it looks like you made it with photoshop effects and brushes and then you reduced colors to 28.
Anyways this is really amazing, you spent as much time in it as I don't believe it.

Great work and great color ramp, it is perfect for the picture. I can see some small areas of improvement in the AA-departement but nothing bad. :)
