Front screen for our new game - "Jack". See http://dm.paula.cz for mobile version + PC ver later. The graveyard stuff is totaly wrong - just didnt have power to correct it. The night sky could have been more detailed too - the same reason as graves :).

175 colors? Gradient tool? EEW! Dx May I introduce you to a little thing called "dithering" and his friend, "patience"? :P


user
Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 5/5/2009 09:02

Chace - Is using 175 collors, but of course most of it is used for the background scale which is done by the evil gradient tool not by hand. (It would not make much sense)


user
sapphira83 (Level 4 Button Man) @ 5/3/2009 10:43

this is so freaking cool. i give it a 10 (on a scale of 1-10)


user
Chace (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/3/2009 06:46

Unbelievably awesome. How many colours did you use for this?


user
theGemini08 (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/7/2009 01:33
Wow! Great pixels!

user
8pixelshighandrising (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/11/2008 15:02
I really love the crispness of the whole piece

user
Slemsvamp (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/27/2008 04:27

Sure is smooth, but because of the color amount :(


user
theguy (Level 6 Hitman) @ 11/17/2007 15:09
This is absolutely amazing so smooth and sharp at the same time... well done

user
umcelinho (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/26/2007 06:36
that looks fantastic!!!

user
AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 3/18/2007 15:05

Excellent job on this! The only thing I don't Like is how you used a whole butt load of collors on the moons shine in the sky.


user
jedzed (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/24/2007 06:03
that is so effing good probably one of the best ive seen

user
ceddo (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 2/24/2007 02:53
Fantastic style, and design. I love every bit of it!

@skeddles: dithering the background would have taken so much longer for an almost invisible effect. Besides, he hasn't dithered in any other area in the pic. I don't think "at least" are words you should be using for a yearly best pixel placer.


user
skeddles (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 1/4/2007 19:37
couldnt you have at least dithered that huge gradient?

user
Luca (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 12/28/2006 12:31
wow...

user
JerryPie (Level 11 Godfather) @ 11/24/2006 14:02
Wow...Why is this not Top pixel art? This is to cool...

user
Jason_c_o (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/10/2006 17:54
I like the style of this piece. And the colors are well-done as well.

user
thor (Level 1 Depressed) @ 9/8/2006 08:17
How do you do the circular gradient around the moon, by pixelling? And how do you choose your colours with there being so many? I love this, fav.

user
2dgamers (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 8/6/2006 14:24
Love the angle on this! Everything is placed so perfectly. The style is pretty unique too. I don't think I've ever come across anything like this. It almost looks like a cartoon-3D rendition. Sweet! You nailed this one as a 10/10 score in my book!

user
Lawrence (Level 10 Operative) @ 7/15/2006 12:23
Gah, I can't believe I havn't spotted this yet!! The light emitted from the moon in the background must've been a real pain in the arse, heh. I think the thing I like the most about this is the texture on the pumpkins and the sharped angled style on his clothes.
8 stars & favourite!

user
Rock3go (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/16/2006 20:03

WOOW  AWESOME

user
GigaGuy (Level 1 White Belt) @ 12/10/2005 18:04
This is.. amazing. You could easily mistake this for a CGed image. The quality of the pixelwork here is really something. (Heh, and I thought the scaled preview was impressive) The game is pretty neat also. Full marks and a Fav'

user
Fred (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 12/10/2005 02:40
Ekhm :D FAV AND 5 POINTS! The moon and word Jack is super!

randomblink - I am sorry but Im very lazy and overworked person so Im not planning any tutorials. But if you want to know how I learned what I know I can tell you. Its simple: whenever I came long some graphicaly impressive game (for me) I made lots of snapshots, then loaded them into gfx app (preferably with "magnify" tool :) and studyed them for hours. Finding out how they are aliging pixels and colors, disecting palette etc.
I spent days with screens from games like Legend of Kyrandia,Gods,Chaos engine, Speedball2,Dizzy,Lionhearth,Perihelion ...                                                   
You dont need to wait till somebody chew all the ideas for you and serve them on silver in 10 steps ;)

user
randomblink (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/27/2005 08:22
 wow...
Your stuff is amazing... You oughta consider doing a tutorial or something...
Or point us to where you learned to do what you do...
Very sweet stuff... I like your work...

user
Aiko (Level 1 Quiet One) @ 9/3/2005 12:44
 fantastic piece, but the lantern has no light coming off of it....

user
Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 9/1/2005 02:42

I started with the single color font for the text and then pixel-by-pixel added 3d effect, material- shading, hilites etc.


user
Wannahlakujuu (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/30/2005 15:24
You can't do anything that isn't absolutely perfect can you? I really love the robe thing, and the text. Is the text hand done, or a font?

user
Blick (Level 6 Commander) @ 8/29/2005 22:13
 Well, I don't necessarily mean gradients as "computer generated gradients", I'm also counting some areas on the pumpkins, the text "Jack", but they're all used well enough or broken up a bit to still keep it clean looking.

Also, I just noticed he has no glow from the lamp on him. Perhaps that'd give a bit more atmosphere to the scene. Then again, maybe not.
