Hello, this is my first pic I have submitted to Pixeljoint.....I have been following the site for some time, but only now did I get up the nerve to submit something, after seeing some of the excellent creations on this site...I was curious about how it would stack up here.  It is based on the movie poster of The Amityville Horror.  I figured it would be apropos since Halloween is approaching.  It was done in MS paint using 24 colors.

The only thing i noticed that i really didn't like about this is the banding on some parts of it. Still, very nice for a first submission.

My eyes just orgasmed!

big black space on the right makes no sense maybe should have extended the sky.

Incredibally well done.  It's really a good one!  I loves it!!!

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 10/15/2009 16:45

Although I do think it's a bit too close to the original, it is clear that there is plenty of skill involved.  I like your touches on the windows, I like the addition of the guy in the window, and your use of colors here is very nice.  Great work!

This really caught my eye. Very nice use of colors and you definitely nailed the dithering dead on for the house.

Well, it was mainly an exercise in pixels, but I wouldn't think it would be a copyright issue unless I tried to profit from it in some way.  Besides, most people (or at least any avid horror fan) would recognize the iconic house.

I have some original stuff, which I'll probably post in the near future.  Most of my stuff tends to be influenced by anime and video games....especially Capcom art and Henk Nieborg.  I'm also looking to try my hand at sprite animation.

I appreciate the input!

I don't understand the point in uploading copies of existing artwork. It's certainly ok as a learning task, but why not give it a more personal approach? You obviously have some skill...

Besides, what about the copyright issues?

Sorry to come hard on you for your 1st upload, hope to see something original from you!

Destiny (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/12/2009 13:08

I love the atmosphere, theres some contrast issues, but I am in love with this.

 Hee hee hee Great pic....love the light in the windows too... 

Puggypug10 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/12/2009 11:24

Thats great!

Lizard (Level 5 Sniper) @ 10/12/2009 11:20

You can use iaza.com, or what I use: photoshop and microsoft gif maker.

Pixelbear (Level 2 Corporal) @ 10/12/2009 11:08

Not sure how to do that.....but a poster was used as a reference point.  Thank you all for the compliments!  I want to do pixel animation as well, but I don't have any programs that can do that.  Is there a program like MS paint that allows creation of animated GIFs?

versuti (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/12/2009 11:07

Great vibe!²


I liked the ilumination in the windows. :)

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 10/12/2009 09:30

Since it's referenced from a very specific image, I'd adivse linking to the movie poster in the description.

eldiabolito (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 10/12/2009 08:08

greenraven (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 10/12/2009 07:49
