8 color version of my submarine from last year.

my spare pic for the breakpoint freestyle gfx competition (the one of the two gfx-competitions where retouches and collages are explicitly allowed). named 'icebreak0r' there, got 2nd place. some weird bios error code card with LEDs and stuff among the prices - pretty sure that i don't need this, but nice item for my scene collectibles drawer =)

original piece was optimizied to 8 colors, details got overworked and i included a snowowl as homage to exocet's battersea =). canvas size enlarged to 384x216 to fit the proportions of the party's 1280x1080 bigscreen

references: ww2 submarines + snow-owls at wikipedia

tools: grafx2

Love this so much 

AtskaHeart (Level 7 Colonel) @ 1/25/2013 03:43

 Oh, that's interesting :o. They are definitely similar and awesome pieces.

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 3/27/2011 13:57

reminds me of a painting by caspar david friedrich.

sm4tik (Level 1 Thug) @ 11/29/2010 12:58

Another one of these "..what.. 8 colors?!" moments. Especially love the background.

Psychotron-3000 (Level 5 Detective) @ 11/28/2010 00:22

Ooh so clean and cold looking! Nice job Tomic.

Romson (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 11/26/2010 03:00

That's marvellously! 

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/12/2010 01:12

My bad. I've been absent form PJ for so long, I forgot where to look :D

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 4/11/2010 12:23

nope, i'm pretty sure it has, even in the results file.. or should i miss some joke? =)

iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/11/2010 10:27

Wonderful. It lacks the 8cc tag tho ;D                               

Kaiseto (Level 6 Made) @ 4/10/2010 19:24

This is excellent. I mean, the original was excellent, but that you managed to accomplish just as much in 12 colors less is nothing short of superb. I'm also happy to see that you went beyond just doing a manual color reduction and added to it.

Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/10/2010 12:02

I like that the mountains, etc, in the background, are composed of different shapes.

Sinsky (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 4/8/2010 09:47

Great style, colour palette and shapes. I like the concept, specially city joined to the mountain.


[balder] (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 4/8/2010 09:35

Woah! Fantastic job, it's really awesome even with only 8 colors! It strongly looks like the "Rosenrot" cover (by Rammstein, 2005)

exocet (Level 6 Major) @ 4/8/2010 07:01

 Really nice picture... 8 colours is definitely enough for making cool stuff ;)

Very happy to see a reference to one of my pic here! :)

Luisyluis (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 4/8/2010 06:36

Wow only 8 colors!

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 4/7/2010 20:48

EVERYTHING about this is absolutely stunning!!!!!!!  I think that the mountains should have a slight reflection like the building though.

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 4/6/2010 08:18

fesch ^^                     

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 4/5/2010 13:33

De background to this be lovely.

-DE- (Level 11 General) @ 4/5/2010 01:14

Love the sunken church :)

Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 4/5/2010 01:01

Wicked! But my love is still for the original. The owl and tree doesn't feel right to me, but I like the font and name  on the ship

Cam (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2010 22:08

My favorite part of this peice are the buildings in the background! Very detailed and you can feel its far away! The clouds are awesome too!


havocplague (Level 1 Thug) @ 4/4/2010 14:39

Saw this at the compo, definitely gets a RULES! from me ;) It's great to see some pixelart in the graphics compos, feels like it's been turned into something quite different the last few years.

Jompe71 (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2010 11:26

 Nice artwork. Reminds my somehow of an "incident" many year ago is Sweden.

Search google for: "U137 sweden russia"... :)

rod750 (Level 1 Intern) @ 4/4/2010 11:11

I like the colors, I can feel the cold. 

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 4/4/2010 09:35

Oh wow!  I love the background buildings, along with the new tree at the right plus the owl :)

It looks like it has only a little less colors, but it is really 12!  Amazin'

elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2010 07:50

Now this is wonderful. Would make up a great print.

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 4/4/2010 07:42

Those mountains are mighty sexy, and perhaps looking even better now in just 8 colors. Looking back on the original, the panorama feels just right. Not 100% sure about the tree though...

Presbyter (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/4/2010 06:30

actually saw this one live at breakpoints big screen ... nice work ;)

1ucas (Level 5 Soldier) @ 4/4/2010 06:26

The last one was already awesome, this is even better. Great job!

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 4/4/2010 00:32

wenruto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 4/3/2010 22:14
