I revisited my dino sketch,  I wanted to do an RGB piece but in an LCD TV type of way, so all the colours are in their own seperate lines.

Im pleased with the results.

 This is fantastic. You should make a video game. With dinosaurs.

Sweet! This is a great piece. I agree about the subject matter, but I don't blame you for not taking on something more dynamic. Cool idea and excellent execution!

As an aside, this image worked great for my monitor's auto-adjustment function. When I first saw it, there were crazy scan lines and jittery pixels on the piece. But then when I auto-adjusted everything went perfectly still. Kind of like a bonus.

Thanks for such classy and useful artwork.

Pretty much like using 3x1 pixels and half the possible brightness (not a third because of gamma reasons). Only a bit more stripey.

Frost (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 9/13/2009 15:13

The technique is interesting but i don't find the motif very interesting. Great work still!

fano (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/13/2009 10:21

Impressive ! i had to zoom to be sure you used only colors ! (crt screen)

ScaryPotato (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/12/2009 11:29

It's hard on my eyes, but the fact that you only used four colours blows my mind. Fantastic work!

I can't say I'm crazy about the design of the dino, but the technique is unbelievably awesome.

Cocazero1c (Level 2 Peon) @ 9/10/2009 08:50

 awesome ! i love this !

Helm (Level 5 Detective) @ 9/10/2009 08:17

This is really beautiful. Congratulations.

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 9/10/2009 07:55

A lot of squinting and zoming in and out.  Then its kinda just trial and error with what works.  My eyes became sore after doing this one.

This was my initial inspiration, i was kinda wondering how the LCD screens worked.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 9/10/2009 07:53

Oh god that is incredibly effective!

onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/10/2009 07:50

wow! awsome idea and execution!... reminds me of helm's spartan piece

and yeah?!... how did u do this, i didnt even know that this was actually possible!!! its like 1/3 of a pixel...... if i place a full red next to a full blue pixel in photoshop on 1000% zoom there happens to be a black pixel between in 100%, when  i do it on 800% it works! strangeness!!!..... 

Game & Watch (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/10/2009 07:42

This is really cool.

How do you manage to pixel this kind of image!?

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 9/10/2009 07:37
