Challenge: Windows Se7en

Sin: Wrath

200 x 150 pixels. The 20 colors of Win 7 palette.

Some kind of demonic-psychedelic selfportrait.

Entering challenges seems to be an act of futility on my part - maybe I'm stupid, maybe I didn't have anything better to do, maybe I'm a palette-fetishist who can't resist playing around?!

(Yes, I know that the left eye is dithered rather than texturized...but I'm tired of this image now and not sure if it would look good anyways.)

Such creative dithering! How do you do this?!!!

Raphis (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/7/2020 05:02

Very nice color combination.

Lovely textures!

rhlstudios (Level 6 Hitman) @ 9/6/2015 19:17

I know this is from forever ago but OMG. Insane. Your use of colors here is just mind-blowing. You just bended those W7P colors to your will lol I especially love your use of gray. Just a brilliant/genius piece that shows that you have a super solid grasp on like, everything and know WTF's up.

Strange colorscheme, but it works!

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 5/19/2010 08:25

This is SO awesome, I really like the colors

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 11/3/2009 06:15

Thanx for all the nice comments and votes in the challenge.

Ninja Crow (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 11/2/2009 11:48

Congrats on the win - Your stuff is great, and this one really pops.

I couldn't believe this was a limited palette piece!

Really inspiring to those of us not yet as skilled.

Thanks, and can't wait for more!

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/2/2009 02:14

Happy? ;)

Deserved win...

DanielHyaku (Level 4 Button Man) @ 10/30/2009 19:05


Love the use of the pallete, but I'm diggin' the texture you made especially. =)

CaKsTeR (Level 3 Stalker) @ 10/29/2009 17:54

Love your use of the challenge palette.

Voted for you, hope you win :D

epoxy (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/28/2009 18:04

This is so cool.

I saved this image so I can study your textures up-close - I really like them! I know if I tried to draw something so bubbly and particulate, it would probably look like lichen or pebbles gone wrong.

This, though, looks smooth yet volatile - like he really is burning from inside. Amazing!

The dithered eye looks hollow, like a hole in his face - which is kind of scary and cool.

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 10/27/2009 12:05

This is truly psychedelic! Very nice use of shapes and use of the palette.

You have my vote.

NoSiZe (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/26/2009 04:20

Just awesome!

hotnikkelz (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/25/2009 19:57

this is epic, congratulations

Hapiel (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 10/25/2009 10:36

Very very nice, I like the texture and colors!

Esitsol (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/24/2009 05:40

 I like the red eyes. they really add to his anger.  

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/24/2009 05:26

Those teeth are so well done that I didn't even notice them until I looked at the picture for some time. Nice job!

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 10/23/2009 13:43

This is awesome, I love it.

Awesomeness ... nice colors, nice structure ... No comment!

My all-time favorite  

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/22/2009 22:17

look at the cavities!!!!

KaLanGO (Level 5 Soldier) @ 10/22/2009 14:22

 looks pretty awesome. Nice teeth dude :)

AdamF (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/22/2009 13:11

nice dithering pattern, wish the canvas size allowed for more :]

xXHalfieXx (Level 4 Lieutenant) @ 10/22/2009 13:07

Fix the dithering, it takes a lot away from the piece.

Balamoot (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/22/2009 10:28

Great reminds me ofpsilocybin dream. Can't wait for your "Lust" illustration. )))

JoCh (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 10/22/2009 10:09

wonderfull ! great use of the palette, very expressive, perfect job !

Cocazero1c (Level 2 Peon) @ 10/22/2009 09:45

 exellent ! 5/5 and my vote too probably...

RoboBOT (Level 7 Captain) @ 10/22/2009 09:30

Wow, I just noticed his teeth, very cool! I like this piece a lot. Your use of the palette is really interesting. I think the blue under the nose does work, in my opinion. That eye bothers me too, less because of the dithering and more because it lacks shape. It looks like his iris and pupil are just floating in an empty socket. Why not make it look like the other eye, which is well done in my opinion? Still, it doesn't ruin the piece for me, it looks excellent. Nice job!

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 10/22/2009 09:09

Thats a great use of colours.  Got my vote

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 10/22/2009 08:33

I so BADLY want you to sort out that dithering on the eye. It really spoils a wonderful piece of work.

Nevertheless, faved and vote reserved.

Jinn (Level 11 Cthulhu (The Call of Cthulhu)) @ 10/22/2009 08:30

{ Pretty awesome, Dawn!
   I really like this kind of dithering.

yrizoud (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 10/22/2009 07:53

Hah, right from the pattern-dithering in the preview, I knew this would be from an 'old-timer' :)

Nightmare Maker (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/22/2009 07:53

Too damn perfect.

philipptr (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 10/22/2009 07:42

I really like how the green part blends in to the violet but while the idea is generally well exectued I seem some minor things which dont seem to work that well with the win 7 palette (the blue under the nose for example). Also this seems to be a step away from your usual style which I find very refreshing. Great work all in all

saehn (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/22/2009 07:26

Awesome, I love it! Great colors. Would look perfect on a C64!

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/22/2009 07:12

Nice teeth. Good use of the near impossible colour scheme there too. I'd say yours edges out Jinns because the difficult pallette doesn't seem so obvious here, which means you must've done a good job!

Necroleachate (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 10/22/2009 07:08

Man, don't blame yourself. It's just awesome. Your best piece, in my opinion.
