 Its a pond, a man is sitting at a fireplace and a car in the background. It took me a couple of hours to pixel it.

Reminds me of the first, "Alone in the Dark". I think you should check it out if you haven't. Your style catches the game perfectly. Great job on the texturing.

pixel it?

looks like converted 95%

even if not - total randomness

picture itself is maybe naive but moody and nice as ilustration - I wouldnt call it pixelart  anyway

Defyn (Level 1 Thug) @ 7/23/2008 03:18
Masterpiece !!!

Solitude (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/23/2008 06:08
This is beautiful.  It's as if I find myself in another world when I look at it.

The way you made plants is good, and messy. Fits to the pic. Sky and that pond looks realistic. fire and the person doesn't fit on the pic. GJ

vanSchmidt (Level 1 Intern) @ 12/30/2006 12:22
Seems too realistic to be genuine. Unbelievable.

Squish (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/31/2006 10:09

inkspot (Level 4 Button Man) @ 3/19/2006 11:28
I think it is more like drawn with pencil tool and not completely pixeled, but respect for great work anyway! It looks like an old painting.

mutantenemy (Level 5 Serial Killer) @ 3/9/2006 05:22

bunlee (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/5/2006 15:19

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 11/28/2005 12:43
Its like an oil painting........amazing.......

truth (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/9/2005 09:42

This is astounding, I don't know what ever inspired you to use this style, those colors, etc...but it's so...different, and yet it works so well and you can tell what the scene is.

I am amazed, really, and I hope you will inspired me and other people to make better art and scenery!

jackfaciale (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2005 01:16
there s something mysterious that is really interresting we just want to know what already happenned and what is going to happen !!!

Monstara (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/12/2005 00:44
Pretty amazing.
You know, it *reminds* me of some Delphine games -- Another World, Flashback, etc. prbably some of the games with the greatest pixel graphics I've seen. BTW you can download a demo and also see screenshots at

DarkAuron (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/11/2005 16:24
 Ah, you improved the sky coloring. Excellent!!

fr0st (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 7/9/2005 21:13
 yea!!! thts what im talking about! yea tht looks way much much better ^^ thts a def fav for me and top marks, nice improovment, was well worth it ^^

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/9/2005 16:43
 yes, your probably right, the lines and the cookie shaped bush were spots were I got a little lazy. I changed it now, maybe I stopped working on this piece too early.

The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 7/9/2005 16:22

cool style guy. It's kinda wierd how the water looks so detailed as compared to the rest of the scene, though. I still like it though. But one thing bothers me. What the B-jizzle is that Giant black-bitten-looking-cookie-shape thing next to the smoke coming off the car?

DarkAuron (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/9/2005 11:35
 Those should be curved somewhat though, but... wow, when I had a first glance at the full picture, I thought it was an actual photo. AWESOME job!

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/9/2005 05:29
 Well the two bars are meant to be two glowing bands of the sky, enlighted by the sun, which is nearly gone down.

Saboteur (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 7/8/2005 21:50

your patience astounds me. 'Tis an awesome peice, but like everyone else, I have something to say. What's with the two red bars streaking across the sky?

Man, that water's phenomenal

d-p (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 7/8/2005 14:50
 Made some changes, the fire enlightment is now stronger on the water, guy, car and bushes. Hopefully youre now going to buy?

fr0st (Level 4 Killer Klown) @ 7/8/2005 14:09
 wow very nice, but sureley the campfire would, A: give off smoke and B: have a greater and lighter reflection in the water. nice anyhow

sedgemonkey (Level 11 Coelacanth) @ 7/8/2005 12:14
Interesting style on the bushes in the foreground. Reminds me of when I would use the "spray can" on the old mac.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/8/2005 10:50
 The thing I love the most about this is the warm glow in the sky. This is all nice and crispy, I like it.

Di0xygen (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/8/2005 09:22
 Impressive picture, i love it deeply its a rarely seen style yet its a very wonderful style.

The only problem i see is that the waterpond should reflet the flame and the guy, before the car since they are closer to our view.. and the light produced by the fire during the night should really light up the pond, guy and bushes even the car with a red tint.
