This took a while. Decided I needed to finish it a few days back. Think I can call it done now, after plenty of help here and on Pixelation.

24 Colours, colour use isn't optimal.

But I'm satisfied non the less (:

Stumbled across this and was really impressed with the way that you rendered the ruffles! Beautiful.

The hall of fame truly does a great job uncovering masterpieces like this! I especailly love the jaggedness the piece has. It makes it look much more natural.

Thanks man :) Much appreciated. I've been drooling over your animation work for sometime. Very impressive stuff you did for Duelyst.

I come back to this one a lot.   Always liked how it flowed.  Plus...the colors

 Coooool!  I just did a jellyfish too, and I love your take on them.  Very electrified!

 This looks a lot like a Creature of the Week entry in the Conceptart.com forums. Looks great anyway. Love the colors. Congratulations

Good bubbles.


user
Kyata (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/8/2009 10:01

Solved already. :)


user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/8/2009 02:57

I think it's your browser or your screen. Looks fine to me. Are you having the same problem with more pictures on the site?


user
Kyata (Level 3 Stalker) @ 8/8/2009 02:37

Great picture! But one question: Why is everything blurred? :s Is it my browser maybe?  


user

Opaque ;-)

Holy crap, I just looked at the last page of Opacus' gallery.

That's some MAJOR improvement, man. Props. This piece is great.


user
DJD (Level 4 Button Man) @ 8/5/2009 00:14

wow.

if there was an award for most improved and hardest work, you should win em' indefinitely. Though there is always still plenty more to learn, I feel like you can noticably see yourself becoming exactly what you set out to be with your first pixel works. This is a fantastic piece, keep it up!


user
ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 8/4/2009 19:01

 the colors are awesome man :OOOO and the pieze itself is really good to :D. Here is my only critict or suggest, try to use a little dark colors in the background as you did with the blue one. Maybe that will create more ambient and deep on the pieze :D. Goodjob


user
darchangel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 8/3/2009 11:32

Jaggys or not, this is beautiful. Job well done.


user
d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 8/3/2009 08:39

argh!

I'm afraid of jellyfish :p


user
Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 8/3/2009 07:08

I like it a lot. as mentioned a bit jaggy here and there, but I could tell instantly that it was yours :)


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 8/3/2009 07:03

Wow, incredible!

I believe it took time...

Now, if I really had to say something, might be this: I don't really have a feeling of transparency, either in the water or the beast. Don't ask me why... I'd be very happy with myself if I could do that!


user
susuwataris (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 8/2/2009 23:12

That's seriously beautiful.


user
Fool (Level 6 SWAT) @ 8/2/2009 21:19

Awesome piece.=) Wish jellyfish and bg would relate somehow colorwise.


user
Skurwy87 (Level 6 Made) @ 8/2/2009 17:34

oh, and forgot to tell you -- I really like how you shaded (count aa in) the hmm tentacles? . . . especially that subtle dithering patterns in their upper parts. makes me want to stare at them all over.


user
blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/2/2009 15:52

 Coool.. i like the vibrant orange colors


user
RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/2/2009 15:09

Wow amazing!!!


user
The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 8/2/2009 13:11

Looks good. Only problem I have is that the tentacles-stingers of the Jelly fish seem to be a bit too intense, color wise. I wouldn't use such a bright red, considering how thin the tentacles are...maybe a duller red/amber color mixed blue/olive hue to give it that type of glow...but yeah, been watching at pixelation, and liked what I saw. Everything that I would have said, has already been said there before, so nothing else much from me.

 

ps, love the bubbles!


user
Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/2/2009 13:06

The innability to spot jaggies on my own artwork is really starting to piss me off. I really thought I got rid of all I could get rid of. But I guess you've still found some?


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 8/2/2009 12:57

Aside from the jaggies I love it, man =)

Wow! It's great! :)


user
asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 8/2/2009 12:44

 This is really great! I dig the colours choice, very nice and effective. I also think a little heavy use of AA can make it more jellyfishy-ish as well as making it more round and soft. : )


user
Celri (Level 4 Ensign) @ 8/2/2009 12:25

FANTASTIC!  I love jellyfish!  This is gorgeous - faved!


user
Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 8/2/2009 12:13
