Finally this thing is done! I started it sometime earlyish 2006 and then did not work on it for ages, then picked it up again in November 2007 and then again a long pause until a few days ago where I managed to finish it up to where it is now. Overall the hours spent should still be in double digits \o/

Might edit it a bit more, but I wanted to get it on here, it's basically done anyway.

I looooove this.

technique is good. very good. but... it hasn't something.... i don't know, it is so "dry", have all what it should have, but i feel it is unfinished, little empty..... i don't know.... :/

Cheers, again. Ails, the mouth has AA, but could probably be a bit smoother. I will probably go over this at some point in the near future. Panda has good points as well.

user
Ails (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/14/2009 09:24
Awesome (liked the flying cars XD)
As a constructive comment, the only part that misses AA is the mouth, you should fix that ; )

user
Panda (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/14/2009 09:05
Heh, finally you decided to finish it.
You know my crits on this (hand on the right looks a bit blurry, and you could put window silhouettes on the front row of buildings).
And now that I see it again, maybe you could fix the angle of the propeller on the airplane.
Other than that pretty nice. Looks awesome (same goes for the "negative space")  :)

This is truly fantastic, and yeah, it screams to be modelled in lowpoly!! Skyline is amazing, i love the sense of distance.

Oh and, unless I'm missing some earlier dialogue, i don't see what is wrong with using flood fill. To ignore the tools available to us would just be silly would it not? I suppose if this is frowned upon by some pixel-ers then fair-dos but i really don't understand the problem with using such things. just my two pence.

ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/13/2009 14:11
Most of the sky is actually pixel by pixel. I'm not even kidding ;)

user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/13/2009 14:05
The background. Was it done by flood fill or pixel per pixel? ;)

user

When I first saw the preview I was like, "Hey that's a cool robot with a cool color scheme"
and so I clicked on it and I was like
"HOLY CRAP IT'S AN AWESOME ROBOT WITH A COOL COLOR SCHEME"

Great job on this


user
ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/13/2009 05:23
Thanks for all the replies :) Actually it's Yos bird, not Yus in this case.

user
Mirre (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/13/2009 02:38
Man, you know how awesome I think this is! :D It's epic, that's what it is! Love the little details, like the different types of small cars being scattered all over the place, the plane (so cute and detailed!) and all the other... stuff. Billy! <3

user
Pocket Clouds (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/13/2009 00:47
...don't understand that is a preview icons without preview text...

user
Pocket Clouds (Level 1 Gangster) @ 2/13/2009 00:44
Spectacular masterpiece! Beautiful texture bump effect!

user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 2/13/2009 00:20
This is the Yus bird's ultimate form :O

user
surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/12/2009 23:09
Where is this Yus? I see no Yus! You Lie!

user
ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/12/2009 22:10
delicious pixel :D thx mister ptoing

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/12/2009 20:57
Always good to see a piece in which the Yus bird lurks...

user
blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2009 20:02
So awesome!

user
RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 2/12/2009 19:57
Awesome piece. I love the colors and the style.
What I'm not seeing is the significance of the negative space. Or what the yellow brick arrow refers too. Can someone explain? I'm feeling a bit slow today.

user

My new wallpaer!

Qbi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2009 14:38
I never comented your work - it's all great - but for this... Man it's one of the coolest work I've ever seen! I love those small cars and people! Number 1 fav! My girlfriend says it's sweet :D

user
leel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/12/2009 14:23
That is the most misleading preview I've ever seen.   I think I might like the surprise even more than I do the pixel itself (which is beautiful as everyone else already said)  :p

user

Great work is done! Lovely! )

I love this :}
All i need to say.

user
Fuzzyleaves (Level 5 Detective) @ 2/12/2009 10:44
AMAZING!!! but the reflection on his right left looks to much like the sky and looks like a hole.

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/12/2009 10:23
I forgot to add -- I also like how the sliver of negative space between the foot on the left and the buildings creates a lot of tension. It's clearly the moment right before destruction ensues.

user
GTK (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/12/2009 10:19
Oh whao !
This great !

user

I KNEW I recognized this from irc!  I'm glad you finally finished it, old boy. 

It's brilliant.


user
Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 2/12/2009 08:46
Excellent work my friend!!  I love that dithering.

This is, by far, my favorite from you so far.

Kudos.

user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/12/2009 08:08
I like the way the angular lines of the robot contrast with the organic shapes of the smoke. Good work!

user
hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2009 07:25
excellent work. +fav

user

G R E A T !

Nice details like the foreground (black trash in the front). Airplane and cares are amazing. Lovely preview too.


user
fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/12/2009 05:53

Hello new desktop walpaper!

user
ptoing (Level 7 Underboss) @ 2/12/2009 03:29
The negative space was some real work :o

user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 2/12/2009 03:23
It's giant robot month!
And apparently last night was finish-your-long-overdue-pixels-night, at least for you and Jamon :D
The colors are pretty much as awesome as a single spread gets, and I love your use of the negative space ;)

user
Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/12/2009 03:06
My days....This really is the best piece in your gallery no doubt. The smile on the robots face is hilarious, as it shows an innocence and a naivety in the expression. I like the fact that you didn't pepper the sky with any elaborate clouds

Fav!
