Thought i'd go a bit abstract for this competition, Its in the same style as Chuck Close, but smaller and more pixely.

Im very pleased with how it turned out. 

I used this apple and pear as a reference :)

Cool style!

Yes, I did use that as a reference.  I've added that link in the main comment above  :)

Very nicely done indeed with a great concept.

I'm not too sure if you used a reference for this, but I found one that looks very similar. If you did use this as a reference, then remember that whenever you use a reference picture, you should always post it. :$

That's inspirational! Congartulations, because the result is purely perfect.

cassiechihuahua (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/7/2008 16:19
Instantly thought of Chuck Close. Great idea!

i think this is how a fly would look at this.

minipuck (Level 2 Corporal) @ 11/6/2008 23:34
it looks like you're viewing it through alot of tiny deformed windows, looks awesome.

ptoing (Level 7 Cuttlefish) @ 11/6/2008 19:51
Chuck close is the first thing I thought when I saw the preview. Well done, it works well and looks nice. Good use of the colours.

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 11/6/2008 19:19

It's pretty cool that you decided to go out of the fruits still life standard (fruits and wine)

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/6/2008 16:54

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 11/5/2008 13:09
....and so you should be pleased at how well this turned out! Nice palette and the style makes the piece look like it has more than the 14 colours.

Excellent work:)

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 11/5/2008 12:59
Man, as soon as I saw that preview, Chuck Close's style is the first thing I associated it with.

I think the apple's shape is shown really well, but I think the pear kind of looks like a football. :P

The area between the fruit (the shadowy area) is also kind of muddled.

But the color usage, and style emulation is done really exceptionally. :)

withalligators (Level 4 Deputy) @ 11/5/2008 12:53
Fantastic.  Extraordinary.  Although to me it looks more like a heart and liver than some fruit.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/5/2008 12:51
Ya' know, I've waited years for someone to finally do some Chuck Close styled pixel art, and until now, I've never seen it done properly. Great job!

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 11/5/2008 12:46
you've captured Chuck's style really well, it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this.  Love how you took advantage of the palette and the image as a whole.  Great work.

banane4joy (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/5/2008 11:54
This is briliant mozaic style!
