Inspired by iSTVAN's Stress Reliever ([link]), I started this. I forget what the style is called, but it is created with only one line, with no more than 1 pixel between it. It became somewhat of a challenge to box it up once I started adding different turns. Half way through it, I discovered I had one section that had a 2 pixel separation, so I had to redo it. It is a good stress reliever, and it helped me with a mental block I was having. 5 colors and all in MSpaint.

If anyone knows what this kind of art is called, if it is a kind, please let me know.

These one line things are just awesome.

Oog. It would make a friggin' hard maze.

Good idea. And good work. It's only good, and I don't know why but i fel i need to give it 5/5 and a fav, hahaha! I just like it!

That is actually the coolest one line ever. The darker red "haze" around the line gives it a really neat... haze.

 If I used more than 1 color it would have ruined the idea behind it.  It is suppose to be one line, and geometric

I thought at first you might have sharpened an image over and over until I read the description...interesting, indeed. Would be nicer if you used more than one color for the line though :-)

Sort of looks like a maze...

WOW that is one VERY long line...

DarkAuron (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 7/28/2005 06:28
  I started following the line for awhile, then my eyes started hurting so I stopped o.x Wow, that's just.. crazy :D As for making an image out of it, you really could in a way, as the verticle parts seem to be darker than the horizontal, so you could possibly make something out of that, but that'd be a real challange. Awesome job though, and unique idea!

supadude (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/26/2005 09:13
i don't belive that is 1 line *falls of chair* wow, faved

 Haven't found out what it is called.

As for it being difficult it's not really, the only part I found difficult is to actually square it off after you make all the turns, steps, and what have you.  It was more of a stress reliever and brain clearer...  I might try to this and make it look like something, not sure yet.

 As cool looking this is, it doesn't look very difficult. I'd like to see something done with it though.

tamzqueen (Level 1 Rookie) @ 7/25/2005 19:55
Reminds me of embossing.. the whole almost 3D effect. Any luck finding out what this style is called..?

Ensellitis (Level 11 Sensei) @ 7/25/2005 06:58
 iSTVAN: The cool thing about them looking wider, is that you can actually make an image out of it, like Bruce said, I love the eye trickery 

lotuz: Imagine trying to make it!  I had to stop a few times because I was getting blurry eyed.

THank you Ireland, Lawrence, Faktablad and everyone for your comments!

lotuz (Level 1 White Belt) @ 7/25/2005 06:52
 I tryed to follow the line...  but I started to get dissy, so I stoped.

Ireland (Level 1 Depressed) @ 7/25/2005 05:50
 sheer brilliance, i commend thee on thy efforts. quite crazy indeed.

iSTVAN (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/24/2005 23:05

Awesome! The colours (and pyramidiness) sort of remind me of Egyptian architecture and art. I think what makes this style such an incredible stress reliever is because you dont actually have to think much whilst youre making it, the patterns and lines are so simple that anyone with no amount of inspiration get produce them.

What I find really odd about these is how sometimes the lines can look like theyre thicker than 1 pixel, I guess it's an illusion or some sort of eye trickory, but I like it!

BruceJuice (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 7/24/2005 17:52
It's cool looking. It would've been awesome if you had taken the thing, and made it look like some neat picture. 

Faktablad (Level 6 SWAT) @ 7/24/2005 17:31
Wow.  All I can say is wow.  The thumbnail caught my eye and didn't let go.  And when I saw the detail image...i mean, the size...just blew me away.  This is possibly the most original pixel art I've seen here.  Amazing.  Faves.

Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/24/2005 14:18
 Oh, this gets a 5 start + favourite. It just looks so geometrically pleasing, I really love it. I'm not sure about the type of art it is, perhaps a branch of minimalism, but in any case I love it in pixel form.
