Great AA!

 wow! nice AA!

 I love this so much I faved it right away. I agree with what everyone's said about the colors and negative space too--but I think his left shoulder (house right) is conspicuously lacking AA.

 I love this! Fave it!

 This is Lovecraft, isn't it? Very nice AA.

I'd pick different colors though... the ones in the preview look better.

 That wins very hard.

Yup! This is not remotely the right medium for this style. I was just having fun.

I have mixed feelings about this one. I did a lot of black-and-white drawings with india ink and a brush, so I can really appreciate the outline, obtained by the conscious decisions of where to draw the line between all-light and all-black, the respective volumes etc. But I feel you just wasted a lot of time by doing it directly at pixel size, fitting PJ's standards... IMO, on computer, such monochrome art should be done at high-resolution (just big enough to be able to work the details you want), and then when you're done, to put the picture on display, use bilinear interpolation to automatically get a smaller image. Yes, this would be outside PJ's scope for pixel art... I just see very few advantage to manual antialiasing in this piece : OK some lines gain crispness, but in many places the AA is less-than-perfect and it looks like a smear. I just mean digital monochrome painting is fun too, and I have a feeling this piece would be even better if you had made it NPA.

 Much better than my portrait of him :)

I love this

Gotta love Lovecraft!

Epic AA

 

Loooooooooong face :)


user
Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/13/2010 07:07

Great job!

I'd love to see this with some reddish saturated AA à la Panda. Might make him really alive!


user
Mis-BUG (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 2/13/2010 01:52

Fantastic one... It reminds me of a two colours spray painting portrait of H.P. Lovecraft I've done a couple of year ago...


user
Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 2/13/2010 01:43

His face is tall, so a relatively tall canvas probably helps, heh. I already a know a wide canvas would destroy that affect ( and probably make his head look less tall).

Nice AA hatch, would be interested in seeing the purple-blue version too, though.


user
Morgengrauen (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 2/13/2010 01:23

why did you make his long face even longer? ^^


user
PanicBomber (Level 6 Manager) @ 2/13/2010 01:01

works, nice looking and smooth.

jeremy (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 2/12/2010 22:56

 Lurvely. I prefer the purple though :P

NaCl (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/12/2010 22:47

 I love H.P. Lovecraft. Nice work.

Pumpkinbot (Level 2 Peon) @ 2/12/2010 22:05

GENTLEMEN.


user
rustEdge (Level 2 Petty Officer) @ 2/12/2010 21:59

Yeah. I think the extension of the background to such a height helps reinforce his expression. Having that cold green color on the face against the warmer browns and yellows gives me a sense of uneasiness, like you're expecting something bad to happen the moment you look away from the portrait.

Excellent work Hatch!


user
blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2010 21:54

 Cool.. would make a good vector artwork too.  It looks alot like a bitmap with a thresh-hold filter applied to it and then traced in Flash.


user
JediDude (Level 4 Murderer) @ 2/12/2010 21:49

 That AA is beautiful!


user
The B.O.B. (Level 11 Master Assassin) @ 2/12/2010 21:26

For some reason, the prolonged yellow negative space really helps this peice out. Could be the combo of green face and yellow background helping each other. But there's something else. Can't quite put my finger on why, though...
