I havent pixeled for a whiiile now, but my internet connection didnt work for couple of days so I had to do somthing, so I decided to make this Hitman piece, it is supposed to represent myself, I aint bald tho lol.. but I think I got the effect I wanted, it got 23 colors, I could take the color count even lower but I didnt thought that was needed, I really really like the result, do you? Come on Hitman movie and the game fans, give some props :D

As I have noticed in comments, many people say that the background looks like color reduce, maybe I created that look but I just want to point out that it isnt any color reduce, I manually made the whole piece.. Thank you.

EDIT: finished

Cheers and Enjoy, BJ

Check mine and let me know your opinion :)

Riktigt najs, men, hugger han offren med sina ljuddämpare?

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/17/2008 10:05
Thank you very much =))

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 11/16/2008 19:17
Really great stuff you've got here :) I would work on the high lights on the cloth, As they are a little jarring. Also, I do not think you have to justify yourself whether you did color reduce or not, while I don't believe that you did, it doesn't matter. The end result is effective, and the whole pixel puritan movement/mentality is rather silly.  If you have a technique which can be used to improve a piece, or make things quicker, go for it. After all, hatching and cross-hatching wouldn't exist if artists didn't have a need for a quicker end result... Eh I'm just ranting really. 6/6 and fav. :)

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/15/2008 18:44
Haha yeah, I agree with you.. I never finished it either, I just loved the movie and the whole idea of hitman.. :) The Character :)

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/15/2008 17:51

Yes but I never do any progress animations, and I didnt even had on 100th thought that someone would accuse it for something its not :S And who am I proving to after all :S If you dont like it beat it :))

Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/15/2008 17:34
next time you do part of the background mind taking a recording and/or progress animating?

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/15/2008 16:59

If you think it looks like it then alright, but its not :)


Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/15/2008 16:57
it looks like a color reduxed brush

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/15/2008 14:27
... Thanx bro, but can you please check the progress right under I got link, and If you have seen this piece yesterday you would see that there was only half of the pic, I made the rest today.. So NO, it is not color reduced :S.. How more would you like me to prove it then I alredy did :/.. But Thanx, Appriciate it :)))

FrankieSmileShow (Level 6 Manager) @ 11/15/2008 13:26
The character is awesome, and so is the pic as a whole, but that background does look like something color reduced. It looks a lot like the result of an ice texture I made for a quick effect using color reduction. I don't think doing that is despicable by itself, it can save a lot of time, but it simply doesn't have its place on a gallery that demonstrate pixel art skill.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/15/2008 04:18

Thanks :) Yesterday I decided to make the other hand holding gun, pointing in other direction.. since Hitman allways wear two guns :) It will look cool, I have alredy started :)

Progress from the morning (more progress is made)


Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/14/2008 23:07
only 23 colors too, very nice

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/14/2008 09:04

:S.. but eh everyones opionion is welcome ;) Thanks :)

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/14/2008 08:52
NPA= not pixel art

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/14/2008 07:35

@tomic: it's not spraycan. the texture has direction and too much detail compared to the rest of the pic. it's a color reduced photo, most probably. The face is 'referenced' from the pic jamon posted, quite obviously, and the body is also probably referenced, cause we can see in the rest of the gallery what skills BJ has. Plus, he has more 'controversial' pieces in his gallery as well.

Seems all pretty clear to me.

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 11/14/2008 07:21

[offensive shit] the last piece with such controversial elements was by michaS [/offensive shit]

noone can sell me that the background was *pixeled* (every pixel was placed by hand).. smells like color-reduction or - at least - like spraycan-tool..

still, i quite like the traced suit/tie


B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/14/2008 05:05
Yes I understand, and I explained :) but can you tell me what npa is? Someone mentioned but I never heard of it before. Thanx

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/13/2008 23:03
No offense is meant BJ, just some posed some questions is all.
If you know it is pixelart then just explain yourself. Some pieces do merit questioning without it meaning an attack. This happens sometimes.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/13/2008 21:00
I really dont know why you guys brings this up becouse I dont understand a single shit you are telling me, what is not pixel by pixel?? What is so confusing about it? The background is really simple made, first of all it was half finished becouse I made it last year for some menu of mine, but never used it, so I decided to edit it to fit this piece and use it here, its like 5 layers of different colors on top of eachother, started first with very bright purple then to darker to get higher contrast then changed colors to the ones i got now, first made one layer, whole wall colored in brighterst color, then onother a bit darker layer on top of it, first started rought with 3 and 4 px pen, then changed to one px and broke those lines out, then another darker on top of it, not everywhere, just there it needs to create a bit deph or damaged look.. then another one and another.. Some areas was being copied ad begining, for example group of dots and smaller marks, which I then after edited. So what is confusing? And I am not delete it with no reason, I worked hard making this :S

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/13/2008 20:38
This seems to be quite the controversial piece :|
Will BJ please explain how IT IS all pixelart. Please explain so that no question lingers about it.
If any section/part, no matter how small is not 'one pixel at a time' or tool usage please remove right away. Remember, its your reputation that's at stake.

Doomcreator0 (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/13/2008 17:44
You oughtta lose internet connection more often bud.

Faved, however, the background does look very NPA.

Sig~ (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/13/2008 14:33
OMG! Awesome Work! I love the portait and the bg.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 11/13/2008 11:12
Agreed with jamon, your progress is unbelievable, and I mean it like that.
Sorry but I won't believe that you made that unless you used a ref pic.

Hdan (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 11/13/2008 09:41
Very good work, very impressive !

Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 11/13/2008 09:11
Wow, I totally missed this. 6/6

Scarodactyl (Level 8 Ruby) @ 11/12/2008 20:13
@B.O.B.: . he's a very common subject in grafiti.

Also, that's a really nice piece, gotta love the detail and smoothness on the head.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 11/12/2008 16:26
What was the purpose of adding Che Guevara in the piece? I don't get it.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/12/2008 11:02
haha damn thats scary, that really looks like its the same photo but you resized it and such right? well i said i used some photos for head reference but non i could point out, I didnt used that one but its kinda scary since its almost the same angle! but what do you mean blur on background? I got tired of that rough aa today, might continue tomorow to get it even smoother :) a otkud znas pricati, iznenadio si me :D odakle si? kako je ta stara slika, odakle ti, da li mozda znamo? pozz

FishBoy (Level 1 Private) @ 11/12/2008 10:56
He doesnt look like hitman from the moie or the games but its very good, I like it alot.

OldSkoolLink (Level 2 Corporal) @ 11/12/2008 10:50
This is freakin' sweet, althought the shading on the back of the head i weird.

jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 11/12/2008 09:55
I look at your older pictures and this one.. and i just say that your progress is unbelievable ... example pic before this one...

i think that for background you are used some kind of smoth or blur effect right ? :)

Sendade pa sta ti je sve ovo trebalo =)


B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/12/2008 09:44
Yes I know what you mean but it is pixel :) this was just the way I did old cement wall, a bit more realistic look. Thank you iLKke :)

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 11/12/2008 09:40

That background is 'highly controversial' as pixel art.

On the other hand, I like the suit.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/12/2008 08:18
Thank you, I have edited it now, worked on the background too, I like it now better :D

Raytheon (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 11/11/2008 23:09
jesus christ i thought this was npa and then i zoomed in and i was like holy shit

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 11/11/2008 18:45
Wow. That's very good. The only part that bothers me is the collar of the white shirt on his left side. It seems like it's sticking out oddly. But I love the colors you use, and the lineart (especially the face!) is awesome. If you look anything like this guy in real life then you are quite the badass, by the way.

jalonso (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/11/2008 18:13
ps: I just meant a solid single color BG so the AA jaggies dont stand out. Not a full OTT BG.

B_j0k3r0 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 11/11/2008 17:07
Thank you very much guys! well the reason it has no BG is becouse I got my internet connection back and started doing other stuff lol.. damn internet.. But thanx for the ideas guys, I appriciate it, I might add BG too :)
