Isackender (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 3/3/2015 03:44

The textures you achieve with dithering are awesome.

Just one thing... I would have called it... "Ten.. tacles"

@PotatoLogic: Hand.


user
PotatoLogic (Level 1 Depressed) @ 11/11/2013 13:12

 I always wondered. Do you use a tool to dither or by hand?


user
Arpo78 (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 10/13/2013 12:18

Is it related to Cthulhu?

user

The AA is sooo smooth. Jealous.


user
Paulo Peres (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/8/2010 08:47

Wow... so smooth!

Stunning job, man!


user
Dex (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/7/2010 16:52

i don't like the darkest center tentacle at all. doesn't have the flow of the other tentacles. 

nice piece

I'll throw my hat into the ring with 

"To save the world, you have to push a few old ladies down the stairs."

 

Nice pic! Reminds me of Dawnbringers stuff.


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/6/2010 07:46

@big brother & iLKke - Glad some people got the reference :D

iLKke, you forgot two exclamation marks though =P


user
Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/5/2010 08:16

Oh, why hello friends! let us shake tentacles!


user
iLKke (Level 9 Nidan) @ 10/5/2010 07:44

...TAKE ON THE WORLD!


user
ev149 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/4/2010 12:10

Awesome lighting, excellent job! 


user
James McCarter (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 10/4/2010 11:14

@skamocore - ahh, yeah, fair enough.  I can see how it might look sloppy.  It's probably a rather tricky effect to pull off with only 11 available colours.


user
big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 10/4/2010 10:02

Nonsense, it makes me feel great. Smarter, more aggressive. I feel like I could... like I could...


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/4/2010 07:46

@James - I actually did have something like that for a while when making this, but after deliberating over it for ages, I eventually ended up ditching it as I thought it looked a bit sloppy. I appreciate the suggestion anyway though.


user
James McCarter (Level 5 Lieutenant) @ 10/4/2010 07:18

Really nice and atmospheric!!  One suggestion I have would be to add a slight bit of light flare around the base of the central dark tentacle close to where we're looking directly at the light.  So that some of the dark of the tentacle is a bit washed out.


user
Geti (Level 3 Sergeant) @ 10/4/2010 00:13

Feels almost like it should have a soft border, but really nice regardless.


user
Almir (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/3/2010 18:22

awesome colos


user
ui_ (Level 4 Deputy) @ 10/3/2010 08:27

 super great AA :DDDD
good as always mister!


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 10/3/2010 03:23

@All: Thanks guys! I wasn't expecting such a response :o

@DawnBringer: Yeah, I know some parts don't flow that well. I guess I did have some trouble making the background both flow and have crazy dithering D:

@TKNy: There are actually a number of other smaller hearts (amongst other things), I assume you're referring to the hollow one on the left?


user
TKNy (Level 1 Depressed) @ 10/3/2010 00:55

Nice! Very smooth, and I like the dithering in the backround very much! The heart in it is very cute :D


user
Shawn (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 10/2/2010 21:01

i like how you managed to squeeze a few hearts into the dithering


user
Jabber (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 10/2/2010 16:59

 Very interesting. The dithering style employed is really cool, I've always been a big fan of it, and it's well done here.


user
d9nis (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/2/2010 16:20

ho ho ho, great job! Hot colors, sweet light... Fantastic!


user
Mistah_Bodgah (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/2/2010 16:16

 I'd hang this from my wall.^_^


user
Argyle (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 10/2/2010 15:16

Totally cool!  It looks like the noodly guitar god is awakening.


user
Hrunting (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 10/2/2010 13:21

 The range of colors your palette catches is beautiful.  Also, I can see that you AA'd using reoccurring colors...Brilliant.


user
onek (Level 6 Hitman) @ 10/2/2010 12:25

woo! lovely design and one of the best aaing ever 


user
asukicco (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 10/2/2010 12:10

 The lightest color going over the darkest one (bottom area of the piece) is a very very nice add to the whole greatness of the piece. Looks like a sun.

Congrats.

(also, those tentacles looks like guitar's fretboard, head and tuning keys!)


user
Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 10/2/2010 12:06

Some seriously lovely looking AA going on there!


user
Kiwi (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 10/2/2010 11:59

 real good! I love the dithering


user
Delicious (Level 8 Regional Boss) @ 10/2/2010 11:29

Wow this is great, nice colors.


user
Badassbill (Level 10 Maniac) @ 10/2/2010 11:13

I usually hate the whole "dunno what to shade this like so I'll just put dots everywhere" style, but it works perfectly here. I love this.


user
EdJr (Level 8 Shodan) @ 10/2/2010 11:12

Perfect AA, and lovely style of dithering and shaping.


user
Losm (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/2/2010 11:07

 Whoa! Intense! This is simply outstanding.
