New about Box for a friend, monochromatic but with a lot of details, no 3D starting image bases, just done by hand it's why there's some perspective errors but not disturbing, enjoy.... ^^

imera (Level 1 Private) @ 5/27/2009 01:09

Wonderful. The only thing I hate is the white around it,disturbes the whole scene and makes it difficult to see everything

BeboTheBum (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2009 19:00

Absolutely beutiful this should have won atleast 3rd

horcy (Level 2 Corporal) @ 5/15/2009 23:48

Ky3bMu4 (Level 8 Guerrilla) @ 4/5/2009 19:29

Great work! 

Zero_ (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/5/2009 17:01

I actually don´t like the white parts around the piece but besides that this is just wonderful!

Karzahnii (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/5/2009 15:34

 5 stars for sure! It's blinding my eyes with awesome!

Antago (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2009 10:35

wow, it's breathtaking!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2009 02:44

 Pixel art at its absolute finest.  5 star and fav'd.  

One crit though: not too fond of the glowing, flakey white stuff around the edges, seems unecessary and distracting to the awesomeness of the actual content.

stonewall (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/4/2009 00:24

Wow i really wasnt expecting that from the preview image. I think the white around the image is distracting. I think it would be more powerful without it.

nvision (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 4/3/2009 19:21

Perspective issues and minor niggling aside, this is a monumental piece of work, and I applaud your dedication to completing a piece at this size!  Great depth and rendering, and a solid sense of cohesiveness.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/3/2009 13:08

just an info noone already dared ask you: how much time did it take?

danbenevides (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/3/2009 06:16

 You freaky... It`s great!
Despite the minors perspective errors your shading is awesome.

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2009 19:02

 well fucking done

kingpyfiou (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 4/2/2009 18:13


Death-Auron (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2009 16:38

pure awesomes!

Tre Le Coco (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/2/2009 16:12

Wow o.o prespective errors or not, its still such an impressive piece! how long did this monster take you? xD

chanfan (Level 7 Underboss) @ 4/2/2009 10:44

totally insane! Top notch!

CrackedEgo (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/2/2009 10:11

Epic. I love what you did with the trees.

smokehound (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2009 07:02

 Holy hell, those trees are wicked.  I like that griffon too!


 The bottom looks the best to me, it looks like nature is slowly starting to reclaim the structure.


Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 4/2/2009 06:52

It's nice but I like the areas with the trees and gray rocks more than the rest mostly due to their more interesting colors.  I would at least prefer more of that in the top half of the image too, just to even things out a bit.

r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2009 05:53

the only thing I dont like is the white around the image, I think it would be better with just a transparent background, but its really great.

YOYOGiGi (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/2/2009 05:46

 Sorry for the background color, i'm still working for every projects with this pink color that we use generaly for sprites& tiles transparency, for info, this not the splash sceen for pro motion, it replace the old windows about box in the software......thanks for  all your comments :)

Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/2/2009 04:36


Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/2/2009 03:30

Looks interesting


It's probably the new screen for it lol

Photocopier (Level 11 Godfather) @ 4/2/2009 00:23

is this going in the program?

elend (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 4/1/2009 23:26

What the hell. Another incredible pixel artwork from you. Grat amount of detail, great style and nice selection of colors.

Badassbill (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 4/1/2009 23:24

A million times better than your other stuff.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 4/1/2009 14:53

well you could also post an image different to the one you will use, and make your viewers happier :) or not?

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 4/1/2009 13:49

I know in some C++ libraries you can specify your own transparent color such as in SDL.  I believe that particular magenta has become the standard just because it's so harsh and no one would want to use it in their software graphics anyway..lol  I'm no expert though.  I do know lot of sprite sheets found online will have this magenta as a background.

But yes, freebasic is an open source compiler.  It is fully compiled though unlike an interpreted basic.  It's almost as fast as c++ but with the ease of basic.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/1/2009 13:31

Oh, and you mean it would be hard to input an image with a different bg color. Yes that would be indeed, but only in those high level program languages such as indeed basic (I suppose you mean basic as freebasic is just the name of an open source compiler).

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 4/1/2009 13:12

Lollige,  Sometimes I think more in terms of programming when it comes to transparency.  I use a language called freebasic and to use the built in graphics library and to have my sprites, graphics, etc have a transparent background, the background color has to be that deep magenta. 

I'm not sure what you mean by "what's the point of that".  Sure, there's no point in that here at PJ, but in graphic software, games, etc...that's a major point.  And I'm sure that's the only reason this peice has this magenta background.


Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/1/2009 12:51

Pro motion is an image creation program. You can google it.

Also, Dpixel, I still do not understand what you mean. Yes it is often used for transparancy, but whats the point with that? But I am glad you at least understand what I meant :)

Antiboton (Level 8 Odds and Ends) @ 4/1/2009 12:37

Sure this is pixel art? May I see some WIPs? What Pro Motion means?

Cause this is truely amazing!

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 4/1/2009 12:24

I meant transparency for software.  Magenta rgb(255,0,255) is a standard 32 bit transparency color.  I completely forgot about iaza though.  My mistake.  Yes.  One click.  lol

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/1/2009 10:58

Time consuming? I am not sure how you make backgrounds transparent Dpixel, but for me that would be one click on the purple and its gone...

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 4/1/2009 10:45

Great work!  I love the greenery on the stone.

I'm sure the background is for transparency.  It looks time consuming to change it, so I don't blame ya.  Unless you have some color replacer.

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 4/1/2009 06:49

Its wonderful stuff, but could you please remove the horrible magenta?

I like this much more than your other workes, its not so flooded! However, you have used really a lot of colors.

Windwhisper (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 4/1/2009 06:00

This is amazing.  I think it would be better without the bright pink background though (which I assume was an accident?).
