okay, pixeling dragons and fantasy stuff isn't my cup of tea normally, but... i was forced :)

secret santa 2010 present for lizzrd. he likes floating islands, dragons and mushroom people.. as does the dragon kid :)

my first pixel in months + made in a hurry, so don't blame me for the unoptimized pallette and the 43 colors :)

edit: added more volume to the tree area + changed a few details, following cure's suggestions, thanks!!

tools: grafx2 v2.3.1489 beta

wip: www.piexeln.de/pics/tomic-ss2010_wip.gif (starts with nearly finished rocks on the island simply because they were taken from a secret, not yet abandoned donkey-wip)

reference: 'Medea' by Boris Vallejo (for the dragon, roughly)

Amazing Control of such small details.
I Love the background, and the reflection on the water .

Fantastic atmosphere here.

Riva (Level 6 Commander) @ 3/7/2011 09:27

Oh, the demoscene feel :)

Just noticed the landing pad H, hehe.

Excellent pixelling as always, but the perspective looks like a little off to me in this one. The cliffs on the front island seem to me almost face on as well as the trees, but then the ground beneath with the "helipad" doesn't seem to match them or the lake/island in the background. Not to me anyway.

Oh, and I also love mushroom people!

Niss (Level 4 Deputy) @ 12/30/2010 06:21

I am liking this a lot - great stuff!

Satsume (Level 10 Capo) @ 12/30/2010 03:12

wow very nice *-* 

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/29/2010 04:32

definately not into hidden messages this time :)

Love the transparent wings. And the rest.

Can't see where the 43 colors went, tho ;D

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 12/28/2010 18:22

I love the translucent wings ^^

zi-double (Level 9 Necrophiliac) @ 12/28/2010 17:56

My favourite part are the wings, how they look transparent. background is also great, just trees are a bit unnecessary for me, but that isn't problem. The work cary nice cold air atmosphere and I like her.

Looks like something outta comic book, and it's pretty funny too.  

tomic (Level 11 Admiral) @ 12/27/2010 13:45

updated! trees look much better now, thanks a lot!

Phones (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/27/2010 11:25

 This is actually pretty morbid. 

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 12/27/2010 10:14

Small edit, I realize it's made in a hurry so you didn't have time to carve everything out as fully as maybe you'd have liked.

One of my favs from the secret santa, love the border and its treatment.

rafaelventura (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 12/27/2010 07:58

This is actually pretty funny =]

Lizard (Level 5 Sniper) @ 12/27/2010 05:39

Love it :)

DawnBringer (Level 10 Maniac) @ 12/27/2010 04:07

Oh, sweet stuff - love the "H" :D  (Now I'm off to optimize your palette ;) )

sm4tik (Level 1 Thug) @ 12/27/2010 03:42

Another nice one! I especially like that transparent feel to the wings. Also the landing spot is quite cool ;)

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 12/26/2010 22:37

Oooh nice!
